The Sabbath was instituted by God in Genesis 2:2-3 BEFORE there was a jew on the face of the earth. It was "made for [the] man" and it was "made" by Christ as the Creator of man (Mark 2:27-28).
It was "sanctified" by God or SEPARATED from the rest of the previous six days by God and it was "blessed" by God in contradistinction from the previous six days. Therefore, it was not "made" for man "just as the other six days were made" for man. No, it was "made" distinct from the other six...
can a person get "new heart" in them from the Lord, yet still exercise their own "free will" and refuse to accept the Lord jesus in as Saviour?
just curious, as dont some here hold that there can be a long interval between 2 aspects of salvation? God can regenerate someone at age 3 but actually become saved at 20?
or regenerated but still refuses to believe in jesus and be saved?
Do Arminians hold that God can regenerate someone, but they can stay refuse to accept Christ?
or is it...
After reading a few responses on the “Pentecostal Baptist?” thread, I am starting to understand what is happening to sound Doctrine; (It’s being thrown out the window!)
It is strange how so many “Baptists” are forgetting what the Bible says about “tongues” & “women preachers/teachers” etc.
But then reading the OP of the other thread, about the person who is “coming out”(or as I see it, “falling away”), it is getting easer to see the writing on the wall..........
Over in another thread the question was asked:
please explain why the Primitive Baptist Still Forbid even a piano in their churches. They sign, but without music.
I'm not Primitive Baptist but I can answer the question. I am an Old Regular Baptist and we have the same belief in using no instrumental music as the Primitives. No where in the NT is the use of instrumental music used in worship. Please read the following from one of the Primitive Baptist brothers:
I am doing a study on this subject. I heard a sermon in 2008 that set the fire for me and as of late last July I myself have lost over 50 pounds. I have become a health/nutrition guru and have taken the verse in Corinthians that speaks of the body being a temple of the Holy Spirit seriously. I do not do this to earn my salvation, or my sanctification, but more so to take care of the body that God has given me. Sadly doing some research I found next to nothing out there in the christian world...
I got into a conversation with someone in another forum who says he is a tongue talking, full fledged Pentecostal who is a member of a Baptist church. He says they KNOW he's Pentecostal, speaks in tongues, etc. and they don't care, and accepted him into membership anyway. I find that hard to believe, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyone else ever hear of this? Would they be allowed to become a MEMBER in your church? I'm not talking about just attending there, anyone is welcome at my church, but being...
.......There is a letter on Scot McKnight's blog from a pastor who is very frustrated with certain Calvinists in his church. It would be easy enough to disregard it, pointing out that not all Calvinists are like that or that his use of the word "hyper-Calvinist" doesn't match correct theological jargon. But that would be missing the point. And, ironically, that reaction would only lend credence to the frustration that motivated the letter in the first place.
So how should we read this...
A friend on the BB wrote and asked if I knew anything about the latest book on Fundamentalism, The Sword of the Lord: The Roots of Fundamentalism in an American Family by Andrew Himes. So I thought I'd better review it here. You can see the book on Amazon: The Sword of the Lord: The Roots of Fundamentalism in an American Family: Andrew Himes, Parker J. Palmer: 9781453843758: Amazon.com: Books
The truth is, my older brother...
A new report by a leading critic of the TNIV finds that 75 percent of gender-related problems in the now-defunct version are retained in the updated NIV Bible.
The Committee on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood this week published a full critical evaluation of the new NIV Bible, concluding that the latest translation "cannot be considered sufficiently trustworthy in its translation of gender language." The findings were consistent with the group's November statement that refused to...
What is necessary for a church to be a church. Do we need a senior pastor, deacons, a minimum number of members, a set or minimum schedule of meetings, an official church building, special authority from a founding church, etc? Scripture doesn't seem to give us direct, irrefutable requirements other than "where two or three are gathered together in my name".
So, what do you believe are the Scripture requirements for a local church? (Not referring to the Body of Christ...different issue)
