To those who hold in any way this form of doctrine, I have a question. And, even to those who don't hold to this doctrine, it is still a question to consider.
What is the extent or range that this doctrine reaches? In other words, after you die and are with the Lord in Heaven, is this threat still there?
At first this will sound ludicrous, but consider. lucifer was present with God in heaven when he sinned against God. Adam and Eve were present with God in a pristine...
Murder in the Holy Bible is a very serious crime, which is the unlawful, deliberate, taking of another human life. Because humans have been created in the "Image of God", it is one of the highest crimes against the Lord, and other humans. The Bible's punishment for murder, has been from the Book of Genesis, to Revelation, death. The passage in Revalation show the seriousness of this crime, and its punishment is, "the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death”, which is a far...
The noun "Pistei" is the Greek grammatical form of "faith" in the dative, singular, female. In this form the noun appears about 58 times in the New Testament. Thayer's indicates that in this form it is a "dative of means" and indicates the means by which something is achieved. Frequently in Hebrews 11, we see in English "By faith" indicating something was accomplished by means of a person's faith. However, this noun, in this form is not uniformly or concordantly translated in the "by...
People often confuse the gift with the condition, they are correct saying no one can separate those in Christ (believers) out of the hand of God.
But later rejecting Christ, Is how God separates you.
God himself removes those who do not abide in Christ (Joh 15:5-6, Ro 11:22). As to Romans 8:39, for some reason people hardly ever cite the full verse "... which is in Christ Jesus". And whether we abide in Him is up to us (John 15:5-6).
Only God can cut you off... if you fail to meet the...
I realize that I have not participated on this forum for several years but I need some help with a problem. I have a man in my church who is insisting that the book Trail of Blood is legitimate. I have tried to dissuade him from this by using the argument that any seminary history professor worth his or her salt will tell you that Trail of Blood may be nice in sentiment but sentiment doesn't make something true. Are there any definitive quotes or books out there that can help me show this...
16 For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath. 17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His own Father, making Himself equal with God. 19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what...
Now to be clear i do hold to eternal security. Not the Calvinist version of it ( based on ' election ' ) . But After we believe we are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption. We cannot be unsealed .
So my post is about why there is no Joy in Calvinism . I first noticed this from listening to Paul washer . I could not understand why he had such anguish in his face and why so much railing and ranting towards his listeners on right living and the dangers of false teachings ect...
Hello Forum Readers,
The following essay is my personal opinion.
I am not trying to provoke anyone in particular but I know some may become irritated.
This essay has many aspects of an argument but it reflects the argument I have had in my own mind.
I hope you will still be able to receive me.
It will take a few postings to fit all of it in here.
I have joy.
I would like to present a little of why that is.
The Ooooh Song
Here we go!
