Missed this last night (Friday, 8 April).
Watch '20/20' Friday Nights at 10 p.m.
20/20 did a segment on Trinity Baptist Church and Chuck Phelps' cover-up of a rape of a 15-year old girl. I became aware of the episode because someone then e-mailed a website I manage, with the claim that they now know about our despicable IFB church and our teachings.
I'm sitting here wondering, how do people like Chuck Phelps continue to be pastors? Are we IFBers...
Due to length, this Opening Post is presented in two posts, Part One below, and Part Two in the next post.
Reformed Theology makes two assertions concerning their doctrine of Election before Time, first that God chose a particular number of foreseen individuals before creation to be the recipients of His salvation, and two, God chose the foreseen individuals because it pleased Him to do so, but not because of any foreseen characteristic or belief of the selected individuals.
A recent trip to top off my gas tank found me paying $4.01 for a gallon of regular. That is in Riverside, CA.
So, where do you live and what is it costing you to keep that fossil fuel drinking car running?
Are you giving up other things to pay for gas?
Where do we regard the Catholic "official doctrines/dogmas" as placing them?
is that Church seen as being essentially Gospel, with peculiar additions, or as being "outside pale of Orthodoxy?"
JUST referring to the officially held teachings/doctrines/dogmas of that Church , to see if it is to be considered teaching the true Gospel, or another False one?
Like peeling an onion, when we delve into this difficult passage, we find layers and layers of possible meanings. Lets have some fun and at least think about all the issues this passage lays before the Bible student. Many of the insights into possible meanings of this passage were derived from a commentary by Karen H. Jobes on 1 Peter.
1 Peter 1:1-2 NASB:
‘Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and...
Does it go beyond orthodoxy, and head into being False Gospel message?
John 14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Jesus was giving the conditions of when this promise of the permnanent indwelling Holy Spirit will be sent:
John 14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the...
I think I just got dumped or pushed aside by a potential girl/friend because I am of the Way of the Master mindset. This woman is a Fundamentalist, and practices the doctrine of SEPARATION to the core. Way of the Master is a Conservative evangelical para church ministry.
I am a confrontational evangelist and I think she has a problem with Ray Comfort's lack of Biblical separation. She also has a problem with me wanting to speak with false teachers to try and persuade them of their...
1. Election is a sovereign free act of God, through which He determines who shall be made heirs of heaven.
True, supported by Romans 9:18
2. The elective decree was made in eternity.
False, but close to truth. An elective decree was made in eternity whereby God chose us (corporately as believers in Christ) in Him from the foundation of the world. But God brings his plan of redemption to fruition during the lifetime of those chosen (specific individual election) based on God crediting...
Does it matter if the divorce was "scripturally correct?"
Does it matter if was done before becoming a Christian?
Does it matter if person stayed single?
Or does the Bible teach IF divorced. disqualified from serving as Elder/pastor etc period?
