Why Do Conditionalists Contradict Themselves and Pray to God for Salvation?A doctrine is not true because I believe it or because you believe it, it is true only if God says it! I do not ask whether you believe what I preach, perhaps you do not. But I ask you to search the Scriptures and determine whether these things be so. I am not afraid to submit my belief in God's immutable sovereignty, man's total fall and ruin, God's elective grace, Christ's effectual atonement, the Spirit's invincible call, and the perseverance of the sheep to the word of God.
We say Amen...
Biblical errancy?The Bible being the word of God, as God's word is of course inerrant.
So what is the cause of alleged errancy?
* There are three primary causes.
* The errant readers.
(Such as inaccurate knowledge or understanding of history.)
* Errors in translation.
* Know variants in the copies.
* There are no exceptions.
Friday or Wednesday? Thursday?What had became a long tradition. Christ was believed to be crucified on a Friday. This was based on the gospel of John. On the day of Christ's crucifixion John's account reports, ". . . And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: . . ." Community interpreted being the sixth day of the week during the Passover interpreted as being about noon according to Jewish reckoning of the hours of the day. [Roman reckoning being out 6 A.M. morning]

The Sovereignty of God is AbsoluteMan's will has never determined one single event in the world's history and never will. God's will alone determines events and brings them to pass. It is true that men do act according to their choice, will, intellect, and reason; but this is not the whole truth. The whole truth is that every event, circumstance, opportunity, happening, and thought, whether good or bad, that influences and motivates man's choice is foreordained of God. Sovereignty is the prerogative of God alone. Man is...
Transubstantion1/3 of Roman Catholics believe that when a priest bless the elements - they actually become the blood and flesh of Jesus.
Many Protestants (and Baptists - among others) believe the bread and juice are simply symbols of Christ
So is that belief simply a metaphor or is transubstantiation actually a Biblical belief.
Transubstantiation and Jesus' words at the last supper
In the story of this link - why did the bread and wine not transform after the blessing of the priest?
Communion - Roman...
Justification by FaithAlmost all Christians would claim to believe we were justified by faith, and perhaps quote Romans 3:28, which says we are justified by faith and not by the works of the Law. If pressed, many Christians would define “works of the law” as the actions we take to conform to the requirements of the Law, rather than what the “law” actually accomplishes, which is to make us aware of our sin and lead us to Christ.
So lets back up and ask the question, justified by whose faith? Does our faith...
Created???I'm not going to call this poster out but just post what he said in his own words because this is Baptist and Bible Study and I don't hang around here much but tend to hang my hat in the C/A Forum... Who else believes this?... Jesus Christ, who from his birth was the image of God, soul, body, and the Holy Spirit indwelling his body, making him a trinitarian entity, and like God... I actually don't know where to start... To me this is denying the Divinity of Christ... Who not only created the...
Does God respond to Man?On another thread @KenH introduced an interesting theological "problem" concerning whether God actually interacts with man.
The majority of Scripture provides examples of God responding to man and man responding to God. BUT could these instances be anthropomorphic?
@KenH suggests that man responding to God denies divine sovereignty and God responding to man raises man above God.
This isn't a new debate, of course, and it is perhaps more philosophical than theological (but theology...
The Sinners PrayerOften, on BB we have heard some mention "The Sinners Prayer"
So what is your definition of a "sinners prayaer"
What would you say is the biggest difference between the sinners prayer and true salvation?
Seeking God?Romans 3:11 makes this statement and some read this as saying "there is none who seeks for God at any time." However the intended contextual message might be "there is none who seeks for God all the time, or when they are going against God by sinning."
Contextually, since Paul is saying "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) when going against God by sinning is most likely the actual message.
Consider this verse:
2 Chronicles 15:4 (NASB)
“But in their distress...
