1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.
This is one of three passages that actually use the word (hupostasis) in them.

I'm sorry that I did not get back to post in the thread about partial preterism and futurism before it was closed. But I have wondered for a long time why it is that many Baptists, claiming to be New Testament Christians, have adopted so many teachings that were only invented 200 - 500 years ago.

What about you?
Do you have a single life verse?
Have you also seen the need to change the verse over time?
According to The Apostle Paul in Romans 7 is sin a condition an action or both or something else entirely?... Brother Glen
Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
7:18 For I know that in me...

I am not allowed to participate in the special baptist forum so I am re-posting a post from Jerome here so all of us can share our thoughts.
"John Calvin, Commentary on Jn 8:32
"when the Lord regenerates us by his Spirit, he likewise makes us free, so that, loosed from the snares of Satan, we willingly obey righteousness. But regeneration proceeds from faith"
John Calvin, Commentary on Rom 4:16:
"Here, in the first place, the Apostle shows, that nothing is set before...
Since almost every thread on almost any topic seems to be at-risk of being derailed by one or two - abortion-all-the-time-on-every-topic devotees.
Here it is
If I support abortion does that help Satan or not?
If you derail every thread over to the abortion topic - does that help Satan or not?? is that your question?
May I suggest that you direct your agenda to a thread like this one - that is actually on your topic?
