When I became born-again ...
I was totally OPEN with no pre-conceived false doctrines.
And now also ... I believe in no unscriptural doctrines, but
I believe in what the NT clearly teaches!
Some years ago, I collected approximately 20 NT passages
which clearly threaten the loss of salvation.
And there were quite a few more verses which hinted at this fact,
but which simply served to confirm the truth of the obvious 20.
But, do you think you’re going to hear this from most churches?
In the KJV, Job 17:6 reads:6 He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.
The word here rendered "tabret" (tamborine), topheth, actually means the act of spitting. The translators mistook it for toph, which means tamborine. Topheth only occurs that one time in the OT, while toph occurs several times. If the translators were inspired, as some KJVOs insist, they shoulda not have made such an oversight, as the KJV's rendition doesn't make sense. (Job was...
Out of all these "theories" on the Atonement, or rather Death, of Jesus, only one is Biblically correct. As I have said in other posts here on BB, that I believe that the only possible option, is Penal Substitutionary Atonement.
Ransom to Satan Theory
This theory was developed by Origen (A.D. 185–254), and it advocated that Satan held people captive as a victor in war. This theory, which was also held by Augustine, advocated that because Satan held people captive, a ransom had to be paid,...
Think I've gone daft? Here are some facts: Jesus was resurrected on the 4th day of passover, which ,this year, was Wed. Mar. 31! Read the Scriptures closely, & you'll see it!
The dates of passover were established by GOD, in the 1700s BC, while Easter is a MAN-MADE observance, moved by the RCC to Sundays for their convenience in the 300s AD.
However, there's nothing wrong with observing/celebrating the central event of all Christendom !
Divorce, Remarriage and Preaching
The linked thread is about to expire
(admin note: the post below was posted today)
Bumping a five-year-old thread here. I fall into the latter category because my first wife abandoned the marriage for an affair. In the intervening years, I married again, this time to a woman who herself was divorced because her first husband was an unrepentant pedophile.
While I have no desire to pastor a church, I would still like doing pulpit supply or some kind of...
It would have been perfectly just for God to have left all men in their sin and misery and to have shown mercy to none. God was under no obligation whatsoever to provide salvation for anyone. It is in this context that the Bible sets forth the doctrine of election.
The doctrine of election declares that God, before the foundation of the world, chose certain individuals from among the fallen members of Adam’s race to be the objects of his undeserved favor. These, and...
Well, that thread was enjoyable, so here's another like it.
The Greek article is difficult to translate. First of all, Greek only has a definite article, so that is different from English, which as an indefinite article also. Secondly, the Greek article has some very different uses from the English article or that of other Indo-European languages. For example, Greek uses an article before proper names, such as "The Jesus"--doesn't work in English. Thirdly, many languages (Japanese and...
Charles Haddon Spurgeon December 28, 1856, Revelation 14:1-3, New Park Street Pulpit Volume 3
“I do abhor from my heart that continual whining of some men about their own little church as the "remnant"—the "few that are to be saved." They are always dwelling upon strait gates and narrow ways, and upon what they conceive to be a truth, that but few shall enter heaven. Why, my friends, I believe there will be more in heaven than in hell. If you ask me why I think so, I answer, because Christ,...
