New Birth before Faith !
One of the most obvious truths of scripture, which is that New Birth or being born of the Spirit must have first occurred before one can believe on Christ for Salvation, this is true simply because such an act is pleasing to God Heb 11:6
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
1 Jn 3:22-2337
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him,...
"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also" (1 John 2:23)
The KJV has wrongly assumed that the words they have in italics, are not part of the Original Letter of the Apostle John.
Rightly, the greater majority of Bible's have these words are part of the Letter of John, which has the greater textual evidence. This is a very good example to reject any so called "priority text", as is done by Robinson and Pierpont, for their...
In the very first verse of the Book of Beginnings, Genesis, we read:
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”
The Hebrew for “God”, is “אֱלֹהִ֑ים”, which is masculine, plural; and “created”, is “בָּרָ֣א”, which is masculine, singular, and is literally, “He created”.
Some have argued that the plural “אֱלֹהִ֑ים”, is for “plural of majesties”, as a king or queen would say “we”. There is no Biblical evidence to support this, which is used by those who oppose the Bible’s...
Some claim being made righteous by the blood of Christ is the same thing as being declared righteous or having righteousness "imputed" to us. This assertion is false theology.
When God and God alone transfers us into Christ, i.e. when we are baptized into Christ, we undergo the circumcision of Christ where our sin burden (what God holds against us due to sin) is removed. Thus the Lamb of God takes away the sin of the world, one sinner at a time.
Additionally, some claim we have not been...
Coming from me, SGO, you read that correctly.
My mind has been changed.
Please accept my apology to those whom I have maligned because of my major misunderstanding.
However, a qualification is necessary.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God...
2 Timothy 3:16
The holy words given by God, from the first, are for all time.
The word of our God shall stand for ever.
The words which God said for us through His inspired prophets, including our Lord Jesus Christ, are...
Several Bible passages indicate that the ungodly will be burned up, consumed by fire, and turned to ashes. Which view of hell does this support? The three main views are eternal torment, annihilationism (aka conditional immortality), and universalism.
Here is an optional to watch 10 minute video that discusses this same question:
First I would like to wish you the very best of health, to all here. I write this letter for I am somewhat in need of help, for at this moment I do not know who can I go to with the information and the knowledge that have gathered of the last 35 years with a person unknown, which you call the Spirit or many spirits.
My story or my testimony is a Very, very long journey; I do not know how to begin.
Please bear with me for I...
In a previous recently closed post, we examined Should the Textus Receptus have conjectural emendations? The author of the opening post gave a resounding “No!” I pose as a follow up, “Should the Nestle-Aland 28 have conjectural emendations?” The NA28 is a critical edition of the New Testament most often designated by its two most influential editors, Eberhard Nestle and Kurt Aland. “28” represents the edition number (i.e. 28th edition). The actual title is Novum Testamentum Graece. The 1st...
I'm reading his book titled The Gospel's Power & Message. Overall I appreciate his clarity with respect to the problem of modern man and God's solution. He comes across to my unlearned mind as a mild Calvinist not a strict 5 pointer.
May I ask for opinions on the matter?
While discussing translations of the Bible - we often talk about what part the autograph copies have.
Now, the Lord did promise that his Word would never pass away.
Then why did He not allow the Originals to survive?
Did he think that we would end up worshiping them?
How about who ever had possession could claim they were the true church?
So if we did have the autographs - would we be better off?
