Roman Catholicism and the total abuse & murder of children (incl. abortion).
Those attempting to defend Roman Catholicism when they are clearly in error, always resort to a dirty trick of distraction, and so when 'on the ropes', 'backed into a corner' when facts are clearly presented that they cannot (will not) answer, they often like to tout that they are the protectors of the 'innocent', and especially like to 'blow their trumpet' when it come to 'abortion' and 'rights to life', but when...
One irrefutable fact that makes the KJVO myth false is its TOTAL LACK OF SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT, even in the KJV itself. We baptists believe that no doctrine of faith/worship not derived from Scripture is true, and that included KJVO. No matter how many different pro-KJVO arguments are made, the supporters of KJVO simply cannot overcome the "no Scriptural support" fact, which makes all pro-KJVO arguments moot, void, & dead.
I believe the "Psalm 12:6-7 thingie" has been discussed ad...
On another thread @Iconoclast argued against the statementThe Holy Spirit guides us to all spiritual truth. We cannot claim to have arrived at spiritual truth in any other way claiming that the guidance of the Spirit was limited to the Apostles.
Granted, divine revelation has been accomplished BUT Is God still active in the lives of His people? Or is God "dead" ..... or something in between?
My view is today's church too often dismisses the power of God and the work of the Spirit. This is...
Questions about the Sabbath of the LORD thy God, this subject is interesting don't you think so?
Here is an excellent video series on this subject, that I have been watching, that Youtube recommended to me:
The playlist is 36 videos long, but each is appropriately titled, if anyone desires to go to a specific topic, and most can stand alone, though some recommend other videos prior within them. Here are the video titles (and please note, I do not agree with every statement made in these...
The Arminian must believe before he would choose to believe (a form of repentance). The Calvinist must believe before he chooses to repent. It's just in how we define repentance. Jesus says whoever believes has eternal life. So all are saved by grace before they decide anything.
The first step - Interpretation - involves trying to determine what God's intended message was to the initial audience. This involves looking at the verse or passage in context and following the flow of thought, asking questions like "What point is the author making?"
The second step - principlization - involves trying to determine what timeless principles are being taught, applicable to the first audience and to us many years later. This is where we deal with difficult issues like...
I don't know if this has been discussed at length here previously, but it was mentioned in another thread I was reading, so I thought I would make it a topic. What do you think happens in the afterlife to those who never had a chance to hear or accept the Gospel in this life?
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
I read this in my Bible reading this morning. I’m not wanting to create an argument, just sharing thoughts this morning.
If my salvation is pre-determined, without anything to do with God’s foreknowledge of my choices, how is it that it can be said that a man can lose his own soul?
In my mind, this clearly implies man has a free will.
In another thread, there was a disagreement concerning the promise of Jesus.
Were there promises that were given to the Apostles alone.?
Or can we just claim them to ourselves?
I had posted this;
Iconoclast said: ↑
The Holy Spirit guided the Apostles into All Truth, not us.
We are given the Spirit to be able to welcome truth, but we do not have the same promise the Apostles had.
No... this is not milk issues, but meat.
Correct doctrinal root leads to correct spiritual fruit.
In another thread, a member made the suggestion that this thread be started after he made the statement: "this is what is called private interpretation by Peter himself". So let us look at this "private interpretation" concept and see who uses it.
Is it us Catholics (or other Orthodox believing Christians) who believe in Christian Orthodoxy i.e. a belief one Universal (Catholic) Christian Church (and the sacraments it taught) that existed from the very beginning of the newly forming...
