From a thread in the General Bapt discussion
Thank you, brother Vaughn.
As you have said, I am seeking a church, not a debate. I agree with you that if people want to discuss the divorce and remarriage issue (which is an extremely important issue) in depth, a separate thread would be appropriate. I would be willing to participate in this as time permits, but I know from experience that this subject can attract contentious arguments if not handled in a Christ-like manner. I think that...
There was an interesting (subjective, I know ) discussion on another thread which was closed because it started devolving into nonsense. I’d like to look at some aspects of that thread here (at least to give an opportunity for those who are interested in historical theories of atonement (probably the least popular topic on this forum).
On the other thread @Brooksntea brought up Anselm and Abelard and their theories of atonement. They both believed that Christ bore our sins in his...
I just finished a study on what exactly is the "great tribulation", and when it actually starts, also what the day the second coming of the Messiah will be like, and how the Torah autumn appointed times relate to the events of his second coming, and when the seven trumpets and seven bowls of Revelation actually happen. Check out the study here What the Great Tribulation of the Second Coming Will Be Like, and When the Seven Trumpets and Seven Bowls of Revelation Will Happen | Wisdom of God .
Hey again all!
I've starting looking into some church history books lately. I have some downloaded as epubs. Anyway, in looking into an epub by Anselm it said this:
"In Why God Became Man, Anselm tries to answer the question of the incarnation of God in the form of Jesus Christ, concluding that neither men nor God owed anything to the Devil, and that our only debt was to God. Christ died in our place because there was no way we could pay the debt ourselves. Anselm's theory is highly...
Is the 1982 NKJV a more accurate and better overall English translation than the 1560 Geneva Bible?
Since there are not likely very many English-speakers who read the 1560 Geneva Bible, many may regard this as an unimportant question. A good number of KJV defenders or KJV-only advocates have praised the 1560 Geneva Bible, one of pre-1611 English Bibles of which the KJV is a revision. The 1560 Geneva Bible is on the KJV-only view's line or stream of good Bibles.
On the other hand, many...
One determiner of how Calvinistic a Bible translation is would be to see how many times it uses some form of the word sovereign (ty, or ly). ( I realize that occasionally it refers to earthly kings.)
KJV : 0
WEB : 1
CEB : 2
Phillips : 3
ESV : 4
NKJV : 5
CSB and HCSB : 6
NASB : 8
LEB : 11
ISV : 15
EXB : 25
MESSAGE : 38
NLT : 291
NIV : 297
NET : 368
Isn't it surprising that the so-called Calvinistic ESV came...
Found this on FB-
Open for discussion:
The Bible I read is superior to "the original autographs" because we actually HAVE it, and we can read, study, and memorize it.
I don't understand the thought process that thinks God was so stupid that he gave his words infallibly and then left us at the mercy of man's best efforts. The Bible tells me that God does some things based on foreknowledge. I believe God gave his words in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek in a form, that once translated into...
In a previous thread the discussion ran for 165 posts in just 2 days. The thread was closed before I could contribute. Here's my contribution -
Gen 18:19 “For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”
The Passover celebrations were family centred, although they were annual. They prefigured the Lord's Supper....
Liginour Ministries recently did a bible poll survey, and on one of their questions got the following results!
Jesus was the first and greatest Creation of God, and result was that 78 % of the Evangelicals agreed with that, and 73 % of that group saw it strongly!
