I'm trying to identify the precise sequence of events from Easter Sunday morning until the risen Lord's last recorded appearance. Any reconstruction of this sequence must solve the apparent inconsistencies outlined in (1)-(4) below. Such a reconstruction is important because some educated academics take offense at these inconsistencies and accordingly reject the Gospel resurrection narrative. I believe in Jesus' bodily resurrection and want to solve these problems as much as I can for...
Anyone looking for direct scripture support of the famed Pre-Trib Rapture will come up empty handed. Admits Rapture heavyweight John Walvoord in his book called The Rapture Question (Findlay, OH:1957, p.148). He agrees with G. E. Ladd saying;
"Ladd, in contrast to Jones, concedes that post-tribulalional rapture is an inference rather than an explicit revelation of Scripture in the following statement:
"Nor does the Word explicitly place the Rapture at the end of the Tribulation."
What relationship do Christians in the New Testament have with the Old Testament Laws? CT states that there is a Threefold division in the law Civil, Ceremonial and Moral - with only the Moral Law still binding to Christians. Dispensationalists, NCT and others believe the whole law is no longer binding ( that the divisions are imposed on the text) and are only under the laws in the New Testament - law of Christ.
So what evidence is there for the Threefold division?
What are the issues that...
Many think God’s restoration of Israel happens 7 years after the rapture in a 1000 year long millennium. But this has several difficulties. One, nobody but the Father knows the time for Israel’s restoration.
“When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” (Acts 1:6–7)
The single event...
In my view this posted video is the most thrilling and faith inspiring video ever posted on the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ:
7 facts stand out for me about the most recent Shroud of Turin research:
(1) Shroud fragments tested by C-14 dating have been scientifically shown to be a later Medieval repair job.
(2) Other independent...
i admittedly come to modern music with skepticism, primarily because I tend to over analyze everything and question the motivations.
Knowing that “Faith of Our Father’s” was written by an RCC priest who considered persecution as attaining and demonstrating higher devotion, certainly colors my perspective while encountering the words
Our fathers, chained in prisons dark,
Were still in heart and conscience free;
And blest would be their children’s fate,
If they, like them should die for...
This thread might seem to contradict my new thread "Babbling against Speaking in Tongues," but it is needed for critical balance. I was raised in the first Pentecostal church to be established in Canada after the Azusa Street Revival of 1906 that gave birth to international Pentecostalism. My lifelong experiences and observations have taught me that 90% of Pentecostal manifestations are "of the flesh." But the 10% that is authentic is so precious, so life-changing that it makes endurance...
Paul teaches that we should all strive to receive the gift of speaking in tongues. Critics of tongues have no sensible answer to these 5 points:
(1) Paul's command to "pray in the Spirit" is fulfilled by striving to speak in tongues. 3 points establish this teaching:
(a) Paul commands us to "pray in the Spirit" (Eph 6:18) and speaking in tongues is the only form of praying in the Spirit in the Bible (1 Cor 14:15)....
In the "Basics of Bible Interpretation" thread, which was otherwise very profitable, three different people suggested that this passage was not about interpreting the Bible. I am blown away by how someone could come to that conclusion. The very word "interpretation" is in the English Bible (KJV, NKJV, ESV, NASB, etc., etc.), so how could someone say that the passage is not about interpretation? So I decided to unpack the passage in this thread.
First of all, let's look at that word...
