Psalm 111 (AV 1873)
Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart,
In the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the LORD are great,
Sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3 His work is honourable and glorious:
And his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:
The LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
He will ever be mindful of...
just HOW vital is it to you that your pastor(s) and Church officially teaches/preaches calvinism?
Does it matter if either 4/5 points of TULIP?
Would you not be able to even attend/membership with a Church that teaches/preaches strongly the Bible
just epouses armenion theology?
The church that teaches man must be saved, preaches jesus alone can save, believes bible is infallible, second coming etc...
MUST they also be Cal for you to attend?
Adrressed to Cals in the audience!
Some teach that while upon the Cross, Jesus actually suffered both physical and spiritual death, in that he became a sinner, and had to go to hell, and had to actually get 'reborn again" there in order to raise from the dead...
to me, this view is NOT biblical, as it teaches that Christ did NOT complete the atonement at the Cross, that he needed to finish it off in hell, and that worse of all..
Jesus, who is very God, became a sinner and had to get reborn again?
How can God become a...
3 Reasons Why the Preacher Population Is Shrinking and What to Do About It
Here I sit, nestled in an ultra-hip chair at a West Tennessee Starbucks. Over a steaming cup of bold coffee, I fire questions at Andy, a 21-year-old college student who takes pride in his rugged, half-shaved face. I pick this young man's brain because he is one who is jealous for my job; he aspires to the office of senior pastor. Not a youth pastor, or children's pastor or college pastor—though each of...
I Corinthians 4:7
"For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn't receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn't received it?"
I have heard an argument from Calvinists (or maybe Determinists) that accuses the free-will-believer of pride because they were able to 'choose' to receive salvation. Paul here uses the fact that the Corinthians should not be able to boast because all the respectableness they had and were was due to them receiving it....
Over the past several years much has been said and written about the number of evagelical youth leaving the Church upon going away to school or work. The number expressed in percentages is around 85%. This may vary a few pp either way, the last poll I saw was Barna and it was 85.
For several weeks now my pastor has been preaching on decisions vs conversions. To quote him; "our youth make a decision, attend church services 3 or 4 times a week, go to the inner cities and pass out tracts, take...
I see this accusation from both side of discussions, but isn't there a clear distinction in someone who doesn't understand a truth and someone who understands but rejects it?
The same point can be made regarding ones understanding of the gospel. Some argue that only the elect can understand the gospel, but what is meant by that exactly?
Does that mean they really can't understand the clear words of the gospel appeal, or does it mean they just can't willingly follow once they do understand...
or eternal security of the believer.
I know I am saved because I have put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ, and he granted my salvation and forgiveness of sins. This is based on his promises in His Word that He has paid the penalty for my sins by atoning for them with His blood. I trusted Him.
Some would call that a "self-centered" salvation and thus no salvation at all (a Calvinist view). Why? It centers around my choice, my free will to choose Christ and put my faith in him.
I've heard many say that the NKJV doesn't always go with the TR but uses the same texts that most modern versions use.
Here's one quote:
Not true! Non-TR -- Nearly 800 times!
so, could anyone that is kjvo give some examples. I know it was asked for 5-6 examples. Could we have that. I find it amazing that in all the time discussing this subject I have seen this accusation given, but never can examples be made.
For clarification, I'm not asking for translational differences between...
In another thread about Rush Limbaugh, Matt Wade brought up "There are a lot of examples I can give, but I'll just leave it at two.
1. Elton John"
I assume Matt was talking about the fact that Elton is a homosekual - and in spite of that was invited to sing at the wedding of Rush and his fourth wife.
So here is the question for this thread:
If you found out that a person who provided a service was a homosekual - would you end the relationship?
