So what is the social justice movement and why is it so bad?
I want to understand this subject myself, since you guys would not be so united on this issue for no reason.
I went into both sides and I came across the tension between Calvinism and Arminianism . But I am not what you would call an expert on it by any stretch of the immaginatin, so please feel free to give more insight.
According to Calvinism:
"Salvation is accomplished by the almighty power of the triune God. The Father chose a people, the Son died for them, the Holy Spirit makes Christ's death effective by bringing the elect to faith and repentance, thereby causing them to willingly obey the...
List presented for reference:
1. God decrees end destiny of life before any of his good or evil.
2. God decrees end destiny of death before any of his good or evil.
3. God does not decree anything before any of his good or evil, passing over and reserving to decree after his good or evil.
While it is not a standard view among Christianity, it is not uncommon to view Adam as having experienced a spiritual death. The primary objection to this view is that it is dependent on theology (it reads theology back into Scripture). This fact does not mean the view is automatically invalid (it could be correct). It just means it is not something that is in Scripture itself.
I do not believe that Adam experienced a spiritual death for several reasons.
First, the idea of Adam eating of...
I came across this:
"This second temple lasted until AD 70, when it was razed to the ground by Roman soldiers under Titus. Today, many orthodox Jews long to re-establish the temple and its ancient systems, including the sacrifices. Some even hope that the story of Cyrus will be repeated by a modern ruler.
These Jews took great encouragement when Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in the United States because they remembered his promise to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s...
Should χριστός be translated Messiah?
This new thread spins off from David Taylor’s CSB 2020 Update thread. I thought it better to concentrate on this in a specific thread rather than take his completely off in that direction.
In their update “Improvements to the Christian Standard Bible,” the CSB website relates:
In a few instances, due to helpful feedback from Mark Strauss, we changed “Christ” to
There is no further information on just which verses were changed, but we might...
So in C. S. Lewis' Mere Christianity, he puts forth that God is a being that exists outside of time. What does this mean? Does God observe all of humanity and it's history all at once? This wouldn't make sense, because then that would also mean that to God, we're already all in heaven and spending eternity there?
Or when we finally arrive in Heaven to spend an eternity there, will we then be removed from the constraints of time?
I have been lurking on other Christian boards and groups, and I am shocked by what I saw. Biblical illiteracy, pop psychology, emotionalism, crazy antics being called signs and wonders, belief every strong emotion or dream or deja-vu is an omen from God or prophecy, and so much more crazier stuff are being promoted and taken for granted by seemingly almost everyone.
I thank God for the Baptist Board that I have found an oasis from the madness. As crazy as that sounds considering our...
