Do Dispensationalists share in the guilt of bloodshed related to Israel?
I’m interested in how their support for the State of Israel fits into the plan to preach the gospel to all nations.
Paul teaches all of God’s promises are yes in Jesus. How can the ancient promises apply to those who exist solely because of their hatred and rejection of Jesus?
Does Dispensationalism teach two gospels? One for the church and another based on OT Law for the Jews? Where in the future another temple will...
Josephus was not a very reliable play-by-play reporter, being careful in his narratives to not write anything that might upset Vespasian & cost him his head. And I doubt if Titus was worshipped, as his men knew he was also a man, and Titus certainly didn't DEMAND to be worshipped.
The 2nd beast will be one man, a sidekick of the first, & the marka the beast will be a literal mark of some kind, most-likely some sorta microchip.
You have quite an imagination, but you don't know history too...
In response to Hollow Man and his last post mentioning the ECF's. You do realize sir that when they mention looking to the Holy Scriptures they do so in light of the Universal (Catholic) Church's interpretation of them. They are certainly not interpreting them as you Baptist's do.
Take St. Irenaeus on the Apostolic succession for example. He writes:
"In this order, and by this succession, the ecclesiastical Tradition from the Apostles, and the preaching of the Truth, have come down to...
Similar to the Gospels, Acts is a narrative account of events told by a third party. It is not didactic* in nature like the Epistles. That does not mean that Acts is devoid of theology. We learn a lot about God in its pages. We learn the following in Acts:
Christ's ascension and the promise of His visible return (1:9-11).
Saul (Paul) was commissioned by Christ (9:1-19).
The Gospel was commanded to be proclaimed to all people (Acts 10; 11:18).
While there is much to learn from the Book of...
I need some help identifying where I sit in terms of Baptist doctrine.
I have been spending my free time debating apologetics, bible, and doctrine for a year on an apologetical Facebook group. My views on doctrine have changed as a result, as I have delved deeper and deeper into the Word. I want to know where I am on the Baptist spectrum of doctrine. I think I am now in line with independent fundamental Baptists, but I'm not sure. My old SBC church was definitely unhappy with my current...
Good afternoon, my dear ones. The past week has been very stressful, and I would like some legitimate advice. My sister is currently 19, and a year ago she ran away after she decided that she didn't want to follow my Dad's rules. Keep in mind, my Dad spent his whole life taking care of our mother on her deathbed and raising us to the best of his abilities. He's been through a very hard time to say the least. She has a confirmed mental disability that puts her at the maturity level of a...
James MacDonald was a featured speaker at SBC Pastors’ Conferences 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, and had been scheduled to speak again in 2019.
MacDonald declared "biblically unqualified" to lead Harvest church
insulting, belittling and verbally bullying others
extravagant spending utilizing church resources resulting in personal benefit
misrepresented gifts paid for by the church as gifts from him personally
Yes, it absolutely is.
Explain to me what He meant in John 3:5 - if not Baptism.
I have already explained this in the article I presented. Is Baptism Part of Salvation?
John 3:5 is clearly talking about your physical birth. Verse four makes this clear. Nicodemus wants to know if we are supposed to go back to the womb. Jesus explains no, both water (womb) and spirit. This has nothing to do with baptism in any stretch of the imagination.
Saving faith and regeneration happen simultaneously
.Abstract of Systematic Theology, James P. Boyce | The Reformed Reader
At the outset of a discussion of these two subjects we are met by the question, whether they are not one and the same thing. They are unquestionably so intimately associated that it is difficult to separate them and point out the distinctions between them. The Scriptures connect the two under the one idea of the new birth, and teach that not only is regeneration an...
In case you missed it, here was another [debate by Dr. Flowers refuting] the "golden chain of redemption". It made no sense [to the author of the OP and was a failure in the opinion of the author of the OP].
