Does Jesus Allow for Divorce in the case of Adultery?
The prominent view is "Yes." of course. Since He fairly says that in Matt. 19.
However, some would argue that Jesus is actually refering to divorce as breaking off a betrothal (as in, Joseph found out Mary was pregnant and "resolved to divorce her quietly.") Under this view, Jesus is saying you may break a betrothal in the case of adultery, but once married, you are married for life, no matter what.
Has anyone heard this...
to Great Commission Baptists...though this is a "tag line" and SBC will stay the legal name.
Check it out here: http://www.bpnews.net/BPnews.asp?ID=37224
Essentially it will be "Great Commission Baptists of the Southern Baptist Convention"
What do you think?
"If God is not omniscient then He is not God."
"The Sovereignty of God is the most important aspect of who He is."
Statements like these are often heard on sites like this, but rarely do you here people arguing in defense of God's holiness even though it is the most used divine attribute in the bible.
"Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty."
Holiness refers to God purity and separateness from that which is evil, yet it appears that some doctrinal systems are willing to sacrifice...
How are believers kept unto salvation?
a) by the power of God
b) by the power of self
c) by the power of God plus self
Here is a passage of scripture to help you with your answer; 1 Peter chp 1......
(1) "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,"
(2) "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus...
Based upon that passage, what did jesus mean by "many are called, but few are chosen?"
Hyper-Calvinists openly assert everything is predestine. Boettner says everything is predestined. But is that Biblical.
No. This thread is not about Omniscience, no matter how it is defined. According to Arminianism, God knowing the future exhaustively does not predestine it. We must set aside this issue and stick with the scope of predestination.
If everything is predestined, that is Closed Theology and God is the Author of Sin, just as the Hyper-Calvinisms claim.
A recent article points to a historiclowintithing among Americans, which should come as no surprise to anyone who plays a role in trying to balance church budgets these days.
Programs are being cut, mission offerings sliced, and staff positions pared away because the money that used to fund them just isn't there anymore.
The recession plays a role, but by no means the only one.
The once-common practice of tithing is fading away, and sometimes with the encouragement of church leaders...
Wouldn't the act of mass and resacrificing Him be in violation of the bible, and thus face the chance of being in comdemnation by God for trampling underfoot the blood of jesus shed upon the Cross as FULL and ONLY atonement for salvation?
