The Law of Moses has not been abolished, because heaven and earth has not yet passed away, hence "unit heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or tittle will pass away from the Law..." and "whoever sets aside the least of the commands, will be called least...". Even Paul says, "we do not nullify the Law by this faith, but we uphold the Law". Lets discuss.
The Catholic Church is not entirely false as there are scriptural doctrines and scriptural parts of the Mass. And the Catholic Church does indeed worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God. Some Evangelical Protestants state falsely that the Catholic Church does not worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God.
Reformed Baptist stated in another thread (post # 8) " there are churches with memberships in that massively out number their regular attendance - that isn't right, that is a schism in the body (all those in nonattandence should be removed from the membership).
So lets talk about that - How long should pass before a church dismisses a member - or should they be put on an inactive list.
How about a military member who does a three year tour of duty overseas - what status should he be....
The charge has been made here that the Latin Rite of Christianity is somehow part and parcel of paganism. Why single out the Catholic faith tradition out when all of Christianity could also be seen as likewise guilty of the same charge?
Where did it start? Let us go back 3500 years where the "god" Mitra is found in the Indian Vedic religion. Fast forward 1500 years to 1500 BCE where Mitra made it to the Near East (Assyria). This "Mitra" then evolved into "Mithra", the Persian derivative,...
The old covenant which is mentioned in Heb 8:8-13. The one that was fulfilled by Jesus Who inaugurated a new and living way, a new covenant. The new covenant is the one that few seem to find...
"You search the scripture because you think that in them you have eternal life, yet it is these which speak of Me but you are unwilling to come to Me that you may have eternal life." And also, "The one who comes to Me, I will certainly not cast out."...
I argue that in order to see disciples a disciple has to get saved first. At our church we have men's discipleship but its meant for christians. My critics like to criticize me for not being able to make disciples, but not once that I can remember have they offered me a "How to guide" on how to make disciples given that I work usually 6 days a week. The REASON I street preach, talk with the lost (not once did I say you cant obey the Great Commission by just talking with the lost), pass out...
In another now closed thread, Mr. Davis wrote:
Thank you for your exegesis of Romans 8. You were very thorough. It's very important to hear what someone believes in their larger interpretation of Scripture.
My Church is Baptist and non-Calvin. The doctrine of Eternal Security (OSAS) is taught. Isn't this really Point 5 of TULIP, and what Sproul calls the Preservation of the Saints? Didn't God elect the individuals in the "target group" in what Ephesians 1 says, from before the...
In another thread there was some reference to whether evangelism (and discipleship) was a spiritual gift. Also the other side of the coin being that it is a command rather than a gift. That piqued my interest, since just a few days ago I read a post at SBC Today titled Evangelism Is Not A Spiritual Gift.
The belief that the Holy Spirit bestows a “gift of evangelism” upon a select, exclusive group of believers to carry out the work of evangelism is gaining increasing...
There have been some rather weird postings on this board just recently suggesting that Christians are still liable to keep the Ceremonial and Judicial parts of the law of Moses. At the same time, some folk seem to be of the opinion that the Moral Law of God has no relevance to believers. I wrote an article on this subject on my blog some time ago. It can be found at The Christian, the Law and Christ What follows are some extracts from that blog post.
The Ceremonial Law comprises all...
Many have criticized my writing of letters to false churches. Well then let's have you write one. I will also include some tracts but the letter is what will get read and the tracts may be tossed without ever being read so it's important to write a winning letter.
