Why did God say to Adam that he would die on the day that should he eat of the forbidden fruit when he clearly did not die on that day? It never seemed quite satisfactory that God meant that he would only begin to die after the Fall happened, that Adam would not die until almost a millennium later. I am not denying that this was also true, that there was certainly a great change in nature from that very time of disobedience. But this does not really account for all of what was implied in the...
1) No verse ever specifically states when predestination occurs
2) Predestination is never unto salvation
3) Predestination is unto adoption
4) Adoption is defined as the redemption of the body
5) Said adoption occurs at the resurrection
6) To bear the image of Christ's resurrection body is a blessing connected to salvation, not salvation per se
Please watch the whole video and prove it wrong WITH DEFINING CROSS-REFERENCES for the terms "predestination", "adoption", "image", etc.
(Rom. 3:23; 8:17-30)
Romans 3:23 (KJV)
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 8:17 (KJV)
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with
Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also
Only those born again (children) are glorified. The Atonement does not glorify .
According to your Calvinist teacher(s), whom I am currently reading about via this enlightening criticism of your doctrines, you all teach that God predestines people to sin. Thus, aka, God makes people sin.
You say God chooses people to be saved, so why would you not say that God chooses which person will sin?
Is that not what you believe?
In which case, doesn't that make God an Evil God who makes Evil happen in the world?
That takes out the responsibility of men for their own action...
Funny. A recent thread on spiritual death just vanished. I thought the topic started a worthwhile discussion and one that can give us insight on the topics of sin and the new birth. The principle of spiritual death is certainly biblical. Paul told the Ephesians, "And you were dead in your trespasses and sins" (Ephesians 2:1). Obviously Paul was referring to physical death because the Ephesians who read his letter were still alive. Paul was making the point that before they came to faith in...
Let's change the subject a bit and venture a view, not on politics or religion, BUT on who you think will win the season-shortened baseball season in 2020? In fact, let's take this question a step further than who you may like or think will win the World Series; and tell me if you believe the shortened season will even be played out to a 2020 world series???
I am thinking that the virus could easily wipe out any sports menu this year (including baseball, football and basketball to name a...
There will be two prophets that will appear in two different cities on the earth, in 5996 YB in the spring of 2023 AD, which is 3 and 1/2 years prior to the year 6000 YB in the autumn of 2026 AD. They are the "two witnesses" of Revelation. They will be dressed in sackcloth, to symbolize the wailing and death associated with the second coming of Yeshuah. They will prophesy for 1,260 days from the morning of Nisan 15, 5996 YB after the Passover in Nisan 14, to the morning of Tishri 6, 5999 YB....
First lets look at what is God’s mark, or symbol, of authority:
Ezekiel 20:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.
Here we see God is saying that He gave us His Sabbath as a sign of His power to create and His power to sanctify (convert and save) us. In the Bible, the Sabbath, represents Gods holy power to rule as Creator and Savior and has never been changed. Now...
Why there will be great tribulation? What will be the cause or origin of the appearance of the great tribulation?
The answer is in the Word of God, human opinions in accord the spirit of man which is in him is good for nothing.
The answer of the question is in Daniel 12:v.1 - 1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: ......
Matthew 20:1-15 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. After agreeing with the laborers for a denariusa day, he sent them into his vineyard. And going out about the third hour he saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and to them he said, ‘You go into the vineyard too, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went.Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he did the same. And...
