Elijah mocked the prophets of Baal.
Was he wrong to do that?
Shouldn't he have been more concerned with winning them over?
What about Peter when he said "Christ you have taken with WICKED hands and slain..."?
Shouldn't Peter have been more interested in persuading them tenderly?
What about Stephen when he said, "Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers...
Who has been the most influential theologian in your personal life and ministry? I know we can all say "Paul" or "Jesus" or our pastor. But stemming from the conversation about prominent theologians, I'm curious as to who you would say has influenced you the most. Thanks.
The Return Of Jesus
There is so much happening in the world today that most people believe Jesus will return soon. In Matthew 24, Jesus gives us an overall picture of the worldwide events which will occur before He returns. In Matt. 24:1-5, when Jesus was asked about the sign of His coming and the end of the age, the first thing He said was, “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many”. This warning is of such...
If literal then Christ will return and the Mount of Olives will cleave into two parts. Israel will worship Christ in all Holiness and even go back to sacrificing.
Zechariah 14:1Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall...
Is it true "Sabbath days equal the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th Sabbaths in the Jewish calendar Feast months"? (Dr Walter)
16 Half of the wood he burns in the fire;
over it he prepares his meal,
he roasts his meat and eats his fill.
He also warms himself and says,
“Ah! I am warm; I see the fire.”
17 From the rest he makes a god, his idol;
he bows down to it and worships.
He prays to it and says,
“Save me! You are my god!”
It is so easy to use a part of the word of God and worship it and never see the whole truth we are blinded by part of the truth.
Jesusism I will call...
There is so much negativity on the Baptist Board right now, even on this "Fundamental Baptist Forum" which was created as a refuge for fundamentalists. I thought I'd start a positive thread. So please post here about blessings and help you have received from independent Baptists.
Some years ago, someone who no longer posts here asked me in essence, John, why do you defend them? Here is what I answered him.
Why do I defend Fundamentalism? I was raised by my IFB parents (an IFB pastor...
What an exciting time of the year and its awesome reading about those finishing their degree from a seminary. I would like some opinions of the following seminaries. I am interested in Houston based seminaries and I welcome any and all comments about any of these Houston based schools.
I am looking to obtain a MA in Christian Education.
Dallas Theological Seminary (I have read a lot about the quality of education but is it worth the cost?)
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (I...
Does God not hold the curse of the fall/Law against anyone any more due to the atoning death of Christ on the Cross, basically we all got a clean slate with God, no longer His emernies...
Did that apply JUST to those who would make up the redeemed of the Lord, that others still are NOT reconciled back with God via the Cross?
Rom 14:11 It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' " 12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
Phil 2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth...
