Except for the Roman and Alexandrian Christians, most Christians were observing the seventh-day Sabbath at least as late as the middle of the fifth century [A.D. 450]. The Roman and Alexandrian Christians were among those converted from heathenism, and supposedly dropped it when they became Christians and yet they held on. They began observing Sunday as a merry religious festival in honor of the Lord's resurrection, about the latter half of the second century A.D. However, they did not try...
My brain is fried from working right now, so I thought I'd start a thread here. Maybe I can help you who love talking about Bible translation but have never had Greek. So, I'll see how far I can get in getting across some basic Greek, including grammar points to help you with how translation is done.
First task: learn the alphabet. Some letters are not too much different from the English alphabet. You can do this! I'll attach a couple of documents. First of all, here is how to write the...
The more we dig under the surface, the more we find as to how God leads men to understanding His truth. So the real question is, did Arminius get it right in a better understanding of predestination and free will, than John Calvin and it get set aside? I see many know the issues but lets get some background:
Jacobus Arminius was a Dutch pastor born in 1559, only five years before the death of John Calvin. At the age of 17, Arminius enrolled at Leiden University and after five years of...
The Bible does not teach Mary's Immaculate Conception, this is a false doctrine. We see them pushing the need to have people follow the Nicene Creed which tells us that Jesus Christ was fully man, and fully God. The Bible does a very well job of teaching the same, but they themselves reject this truth through the false doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.
The false doctrine of the Immaculate Conception separates Christ from the very humanity in need of His salvation, by making Him...

6. Renewed at 17 in a Pentecostal Holiness church
7. Depressed as my generation did not possess the same...
Many say they know and yet find scripture does not support what they claim, and others teach what they learned from others or ministers and don't even verify what they were told. So how do you know what is true doctrine. Christ gives us the following:
John 7:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself
In more than one of my previous posts, I have invoked many of these truths expressed in this sermon by Charles Spurgeon.
Free Will—A Slave by C. H. Spurgeon
Delivered on Sabbath Morning, December 2, 1855, by the
REV. C.H. SPURGEON
At New Park Street Chapel, Southwark.
"And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life."- Jhn 5:40
This is one of the great guns of the Arminians, mounted upon the top of their walls, and often discharged with terrible noise against the...
From another thread which expired...
Why would Ellen need to do animal sacrifices, which were merely shadows of the true sacrifice provided by the Father in His Son - Jesus Christ? Ellen accepted Jesus as her sacrifice.
"Merely shadows?" There should be no better way to answer that than this:
Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day— things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance...
