Amill & Post Mill may look at all Dispensationalists as the same, but we are not all the same. I remember once a little over a year ago I gave a speech in a SBC church trying to get people interested in doing evangelism. After my presentation a older man greeted me and we got into a conversation about Dispensationalism. About 5 minutes into the chat I knew he was trying to preach his mid acts views on me of which I disagreed. I was going to buy a book by Ryrie on the topic but never got...
In the recent ethics thread, the argument was made that since God commanded Abraham to murder his son when He told him to offer Isaac on the altar, then it was okay to lie to save lives. Now I don't want to rehash the lying discussion, since we hashed that pretty good! :thumbs: But I do feel like this particular subject wasn't completely discussed, and want to know what ya'll think of this argument that God commanded Abraham to murder his son.
I just flew back from a conference in Mass....
That He has chosen to "fix" the Future, that all things will come to pass as he predestined them, som in a sense 'fixed Himself" and subject to it happening, unable to change the results?
I cannot send them to you since my son and my uncle (late) have the right of privacy.
BUT--our son, whom we adopted, suffers from bipolar, fetal alcohol syndrome, and fragile x. MRI's of his brain DO show the prefrontal cortex as significantly altered.
My mom's sister's husband suffered from schizophrenia and his MRI's were typical for late stage of that disease. You can literally watch the ventricals enlarge and the brain shrink with the passage of time.
My cousin also has...
The Promise that the Just shall live by Faith is a Promise that everyone Christ died for shall live by Faith.
Let me explain why ! Scripture says in Rom 5:19
19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
This obedience of one, I understand it, is Christ's Obedience unto Death, even the Death of the Cross ! Phil 2:8
8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the...
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Scripture could not be plainer than this, as to whom Jesus Christ was born to save from their sins, whom He is a Saviour to, His People !
Not the whole world of mankind, for many of them are not His People, but the devils children, the children of the wicked one Matt 13:38-39
38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares...
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
This passage here is not Paul setting forth any conditions man must meet in order to get saved, but merely is he declaring a certain fact, those who receive the Testimony of the Gospel, in this context the jews,...
Rom. 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Just recently this board experienced a very vivid illustration of the proof of this very text. A lost man came on this board displaying exactly what this text describes about every single lost person who comes into this world.
The lost man may vary in the intensity of his "enmity" against God. This "enmity" may be expressed RELIGIOUSLY and through DEVOUT...
