We all know journeys #1-#2-#3 from Acts 13-21, then #4 (sometimes falsely NOT called a missionary journey, but it certain was) from Acts 21-28.
I am completing 55 messages in Acts and have found a WEALTH of Scripture from which I can trace out an amazing (and actually LONGER) #5 journey after his release at the conclusion of Acts. It is Scripture deduction and the time-line and in some cases even the order of stops cannot be "firm".
Wonder if any here have studied this out or would like...
Two of mine are:
1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith
This book is absolutely essential if one is a Reformed Baptist!
Believer's Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ
Editors Thomas R. Schreiner and Shawn Wright
This book is amazing! The contributors deftly deal with all arguments in favor of paedobaptism.

Objection: The terms "monergism" and "synergism" ain't in the Bible
The terms "monergism" and "synergism" ain't in the Bible. The Bible is an invitation to man, he has the free-will choice to either accept or reject. (Isa. 45:22; Jn. 3:19; Rev. 22:17). Frame it as the Bible does or not at all. God does not save by fiat. That's what monergism means.
The concept of "free will" is not found in the bible. So your argument is self defeating. We...
Why does the book of John in the KJV not once have the word repent but have the word believe or believed 85 times?
I've come to the conclusion that faith and repentance are inseparable, and that by believing on Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, one has also repented. Repentance is acknowledging one's sinnership in the eyes of a holy God—admitting that I am as dirty and guilty a sinner as God hath declared me to be in His Holy Word.
I don't believe you turn from sins to trust Jesus but...
Many times one initial sin not confessed and dealt with turns into a massive infection of sin that consumes a person and multiplies sin. It makes the person blind to his own sinful obsessions. This verse identifies the Sin and the God-given cure.
He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.

First a clarification; foreknowledge and omniscience are not the same in the scriptures. God is omniscience which means he knows all things by one eternal act of knowing. He is God after all. He is able to give his prophets perfect prophecy of people and events of thousands of years in advance and on in to eternity. Foreknowledge is presented as an attribute of God and is clearly defined for us in the scriptures. The scriptural definition differs greatly from what we are led to believe by...
Ok my Baptist brethren after a war with my computer I'm back and I know this subject of free will, has been hashed around on the board since I joined it but in the nineteen years I've been here I don't recall ever looking at this viewpoint... Did Jesus Christ have free will?... I know that my will unless God changes it, is bound by sin, until God sets it free... Jesus Christ will was also bound, but what was it bound by?... Where would we be if Jesus Christ exercised his free will?... This...
