1Now there was a man at Caesarea named Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian cohort, 2a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, and gave many alms to the Jewish people and prayed to God continually. 3About the ninth hour of the day he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God who had just come in and said to him, “Cornelius!” 4And fixing his gaze on him and being much alarmed, he said, “What is it, Lord?” And he said to...
Rom. 7:14 ¶ For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with
me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
A man-made doctrine of faith/worship is any doctrine or point that's not derived from Scripture. And that includes those made by mens' twisting of Scripture to try to make it fit their invention. As "In The Light" posted in the now-closed thread, this includes almost every "ism" in faith/worship.
Personally, I don't believe ANY such doctrine, and won't hesitate to call it false and rag on it.
Matthew 15:8-9 8
"‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS,
BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME.
9‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME,
TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’”
What is man-made doctrine? There is no text-book definition but if I were to offer one it would be from a former professor of mine who said, "[Man-made doctrine] is any teaching or theological model that cannot be firmly anchored to scripture and is outside of orthodox Christianity." I think this a good definition...
I came across a discussion on another forum with the majority of those posting were saddened to hear that fewer churches have evening services, and that the pattern of gathering morning and evening is biblical.
Below a article that was suggested as support for the position.

What is your view of the two services?
There seems to be a sense from the anti-calvinist position that the Calvinists are wrong simply because the New Testament uses the word "World" often. I want to look at the book of John alone and propose quite a few different meanings of the word world. This is based on context. In short, the "word" world does not always mean "every individual person."
The word "World" can mean:
The entire universe or created order such as John 1:10
The physical earth. John 13:1
The world system. John...
He died for all forgivable sin. This is getting boring.
If all sin is forgivable why is there an unforgivable sin?
Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk Who said all sin is forgivable?
Unbelief, is the only one not covered. LOL It's fairly simple, you need to believe to be saved, no belief no salvation. So, to try and use that is kind of, well... Not a good application, not accepting Christ sends you to hell, so unforgivable. But yet still sin, and not applicable to your question.
