I discovered for my self the Bible taught a post trib rapture, and did not know it until I had studied the issue. So my question is, did you learn this from the Bible yourself or did you accept the arguments from others first, reading the pre-trib view into Scripture?
In another recent thread this passage came up in Discussion:
Ephesians 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before...
Over the Christmas break something in Isaiah 9 really impacted my thinking. Note vv. 6-7:
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from...
Can someone recommend a theology textbook that argues against predestination, limited atonement and election? I'm taking a theology course that asks the students to compare sources but I can only find theology text books that support Calvinist ideas. Any suggestions, Thanks!
I'm in discussion on another site with some people who are combatting a doctrine that Jesus came only to save Israel. Now, maybe I've not gotten around enough, but I'd never heard that doctrine before.
Obviously, it's false.
Just wondering if any other readers have ever heard of this doctrine, and what denomination sect, ot cult is it from.
Thanx in advance to all who respond.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
It is a wonderful thing when a sinner receives or "welcomes The Lord Jesus Christ"
Many are eager to offer up Jn1:12 with an...
I have brought up before how Calvinist do not preach from the heart what they actually believe from the mind. This man points out the glaring problems with Calvinism when trying to speak to a lost person. You can see the Spirit speak out the truth here and there when John is not cautious, but the Calvinist mind in him resist and transgresses back to it's faulty theology. It's like a struggle between the Spirit and the Mind, and he doesn't even realize what is happening through him.
I am a Catholic who embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I attend Saturday Vigil Mass at the local Catholic parish. I also attend the local Baptist Church every Sunday morning. I was Baptized via immersion at that Baptist Church in May 2017 as a public profession of faith that I had embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior. In September 2017 I took a 10 week membership preparation class from the Pastor of Baptist Church. In January 2018 I went before the congregation of that Baptist Church and...
My wife bought me a study bible that had a man called Ray Comfort's study in, it is called the evidence bible. I googled Ray Comfort and there were a lot of posts about how he is heretical.
The Bible PLAINLY defines "turning from their evil way" as works! Ray Comfort defines repentance to mean "turn from your sins", which is another way of saying "turning from your evil way"! Ray says one must turn from their sins and put faith in Jesus to be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 declares:
