Did Jesus Christ die for everyone without exception, that is, the entire human race, from the time of Adam, to the last person on earth? Or, did Jesus Christ die for only a certain few, that is, the "elect"?
I believe that one text from the New Testament, among many others, is very clear to the fact, that Jesus Christ not only died for a limited number of sinners, those He chose before the foundation of this world, His "elect", as some Reformed and Calvinists put it.
The text is from The...
Is it ever appropriate for a Christian to lie about another Christian if that other is wrong?
This seems to be a reoccurring thing on this forum. People think that it is alright to lie about other people if that other person is opposed to what they believe is correct doctrine.
It may seem a rhetorical and trolling topic at the start….but think about it.
If a Christian is advocating a false doctrine that may mislead other Christians, is it OK to lie about that person in order to save the...
I think that we’ve all heard the term “caged staged Calvinist” (if not, do an internet search).
My question is whether or not this is actually a stage (maturity) or just the way some are (cult-like).
I’ve assumed that the term refers to a group of immature Calvinists who are, as Spurgeon put it, like Horatio wit his telescope. But the more I am here the more I wonder if this is not a class of Calvinists that will never mature to a fuller truth.
Is "Cage Staged" a stage/ matureity issue or...
Samuel was the prayed-for son of Hannah and Elkanah (1 Samuel 1). He was born at Ramathaim-zophim, but grew up with Eli the priest in Shiloh. After Eli’s death, Samuel seems to have operated as high priest, but the Bible never directly says so, as far as I can tell. Rather than being a descendant of Aaron, of whom were the high priests, Samuel was a descendant of Kohath:
1 Chronicles 6:22-28 The sons of Kohath; Amminadab his son, Korah his son, Assir his son, Elkanah his son, and Ebiasaph...
Answers in Genesis says that there are no truly red, yellow, black, & white people:
'You see, all have different amounts of the main pigment--melanin, which is brown. How much is largely determined by our genetics....
'So, let's teach our kids to say, "Shades of brown from dark to light, all are precious in his sight."
When we speak of Calvinism we typically (as this is a Baptist forum) are referring to the 5 points. I suggest when we speak of Arminianism we should therefore be referring to the 5 articles to which those 5 points were a response.
On another thread it has been noticed that some like to exaggerate positions. They like to insist one cannot fall into a camp unless they agree with their understanding of additional doctrines.
John Piper cannot be a Calvinist because he does not affirm sign...
More Baptist churches are moving to elder leadership. Here are some questions some may desire to have answered.
Who on the BB has experience with elder leadership in a Baptist Church?
What guidelines of responsibilities were laid out?
How or were committees used Nd in what manner?
What Scripture authority was used to support elder leadership?
What problems were encountered and how where they settled?
How were elders selected - by congregation, appointment by other elders, by...
I may not completely agree with article (or I may ), but I thought it interesting.
“The most common symptom of a cage-stage [Calvinist] is the complete disregard for kindness—as though it were not a fruit of the Spirit. Humility, gentleness, love, and patience are not luxuries. They aren’t something we pursue if we have time—they are marks of discipleship with the risen Lord. Jesus commands us to love our neighbors—Calvinist, Arminian, or atheist—as ourselves. Always.”...
