I thought I would start by saying the above title is what I believe.
But I also want to say that I want a place where I can also call out people who claim they're theologians who have twisted views of the scripture because they don't operate in correct Hermeneutics or exegesis.
In regards to how the scripture should be applied with the Old Testament (I'm looking at you Covenant/Replacement Theologians, you have a lot to answer for) with the New Testament (I'm looking at you...
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
We know that the Lord Jesus Christ is the real winner of souls.
He seeks and saves that which is lost.
In the providence of God when the gospel was to go worldwide God saved Paul as an instrument and example to us who seek to carry out the Great Commission.
Paul knew about the law, and scriptures but did not have the right understanding until God saved Him. once regenerated he quickly was brought...
Thankfully they made some good changes by removing gender inclusive language where it didn't belong. Though I'm not sure why the war on colons. Seems like a fine piece of punctuation.
God’s greatest gift to humanity is God’s love, God giving of Himself, sending His only begotten Son. I know that this is a controversial subject and some on the Baptist Board find that a false belief. But I want to post a few passages and ask that those who object so strongly to the absolute majesty of God above all things take a bit of time and meditate on these truths.

Here is Eugene Nida's principle, based on neo-orthodoxy (existential theology):
“quality of a translation in which the message of the original text has been so transported into the receptor language that the...
Hebrews 11: 3: "The universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible".
As above, we see every blessing including matter in the universe came from nothing. God is Spirit. So spiritual blessings refer to all blessings materials also.
For instance, blessings like healing or money do not create themselves but rather came from God.
But there is a wrong understanding that healing & money are not spiritual blessings. But those...
The other thread was closed due to length, but we were just really beginning to get to a scriptural examination of the topic. Many held different ideas but did not really address the issue it seemed. What issue?
Many suggested other answers as to what they believed was the greatest gift to all of humanity.
Several tried to change the topic to who or what is superior, the scriptures or Jesus.
That was not the topic of the thread however, neither is it the topic of this thread.
Which cliams that God is now restoring back offices of Apostles and prophets in the Church?
