There is a misguided idea out there that God has two Covenants, one being the Law and the other being the imaginary Covenant of Grace found nowhere in scripture.
I have a problem with this. Because this 2 covenant theory implies that God saved people by works in one part of the history of mankind and now God saves people by grace.
God has only saved anyone who has ever been saved by grace alone.
If this is not how the 2 covenant theory is supposed to be soteriologically understood then...
Who are the 'elders' and 'four beasts' of Revelation 5:8?
A statement was made in another thread (recently closed) which stated:
Address Rev. 5:8. This has nothing to do with angels - but PEOPLE.This has brought about this thread and question.
In a full study of Revelation 5:8 (in context) there are no beings of mankind present, but only the "elders" (aka Ancients (Isaiah 24:23), leaders or Heavenly High counsel of the unfallen worlds (Luke 15:4-6; Revelation 12:12)) and the "four beasts"...
“The doctrine of Penal Substitution states that God gave Himself in the Person of His Son to suffer instead of us the death, punishment and curse due to fallen humanity as the penalty of sin”. (Pierced for my Transgressions)
At first glance the definition may seem biblical and one may reasonably suspect that the debate over PSA (the Theory of Penal Substitution Atonement) is merely in application or interpretation. The definition has many truths but at the same time it inserts several words...
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Its clear that it was Christ, that met Moses at the burning bush and also it was Christ who gave him the tablets of stone with His Ten Commandments written with His own finger. Christ was the One who appeared to Moses at the burning bush and directed him to take off his shoes as the place he was standing was holy ground.
1 Now Moses kept the flock of...
"greater works than these shall he do".
Except for the Roman and Alexandrian Christians, most Christians were observing the seventh-day Sabbath at least as late as the middle of the fifth century [A.D. 450]. The Roman and Alexandrian Christians were among those converted from heathenism, and supposedly dropped it when they became Christians and yet they held on. They began observing Sunday as a merry religious festival in honor of the Lord's resurrection, about the latter half of the second century A.D. However, they did not try...
My brain is fried from working right now, so I thought I'd start a thread here. Maybe I can help you who love talking about Bible translation but have never had Greek. So, I'll see how far I can get in getting across some basic Greek, including grammar points to help you with how translation is done.
First task: learn the alphabet. Some letters are not too much different from the English alphabet. You can do this! I'll attach a couple of documents. First of all, here is how to write the...
The more we dig under the surface, the more we find as to how God leads men to understanding His truth. So the real question is, did Arminius get it right in a better understanding of predestination and free will, than John Calvin and it get set aside? I see many know the issues but lets get some background:
Jacobus Arminius was a Dutch pastor born in 1559, only five years before the death of John Calvin. At the age of 17, Arminius enrolled at Leiden University and after five years of...
The Bible does not teach Mary's Immaculate Conception, this is a false doctrine. We see them pushing the need to have people follow the Nicene Creed which tells us that Jesus Christ was fully man, and fully God. The Bible does a very well job of teaching the same, but they themselves reject this truth through the false doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.
The false doctrine of the Immaculate Conception separates Christ from the very humanity in need of His salvation, by making Him...
