When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him [Deuteronomy 18:22].
So how is Jonah not disqualified as a prophet? The Lord did not destroy Nineveh, as Jonah had spoken in His name. Indeed, does this put a different perspective on Jonah's anger when he did not see the city...
Since I was not able to reply in the Martin Luther and Free Will thread before it was closed, I wanted to start this thread to show some facts -- you know, those stubborn things that cannot be changed no matter how much revisionists desire to do so.
Now, I don' t know why anyone would want to slander any Baptists, especially those first ones who gave so much to defend our Baptist heritage and principles. Maybe because those Baptists were General or Arminian Baptists and not Particular...
From the recently closed thread on Martin Luther's Bondage of the Will.
The question is, can we turn to Christ to be set free.
How do we turn when we are inextricably bound? We are set free from sin and thus enabled to believe, turn, and obey. God does that by removing your cold, dead, heart of unbelief and replacing it with a warm, living, heart of faith.
Think for a moment on the illustration Christ uses to shed light on this subject. He told Nicodemus "You must be born again."
Were there any non-Catholic Churches before Protestant churches came out of the Catholic Church?
I was kind of hoping that was where Baptist churches had originated from without also coming out of the Catholic Church in being formed, but I guess not, otherwise Baptists would not have carried over the term "sacrament", let alone, seeking the Holy Spirit to come into the worship place when He is already in them.
But I guess the Baptist churches has the groundwork for and are experiencing the...
I know how Cals explain it, is all of God and none of us... Man is passive in the operation of Grace and their is nothing that we can do to make it so... God saves by his will, by his terms and his way... I'm sure my Calvinist brethren will agree that God did not have to save any... We didn't deserve it, we didn't earn it and the Salvation of all Gods children were placed in the Son of God Jesus Christ who stood where we could not... I propose to the Non Cals this question after Adam sinned...
I believe this verse:
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
is deliberately ignored.
The power of this verse means that believing is the only thing required and we remain condemned because we have not believed..
One is not condemned by not believing , but remains in that state until he believes.
Believing on the name of the only begotten Son of God is...
The use of the term "invisible" in scripture, is not inferring that God cannot be seen, but is not presently seen at the moment. We can see this application below.
1 Timothy 1: 16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. 17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Two envelopes addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson have initially tested positive for the deadly poison ricin at the Pentagon’s mail facility, according to a report.
The packages, which were delivered Monday, were intercepted before making it into the sprawling headquarters of the Defense Department in Virginia near Washington, DC, spokesman Chris Sherwood said Tuesday.
They triggered alarms as they underwent a security screening...
