Know that darby and his followers are looked at bringing in the concept of a pre trib rapture into the Church, but isn't it true that a solid majority of the early Church fathers, first 2-300 hundreds years were strongly pre mill in their eschatlogical theology, and that the Church shifted away from this during beginnings of modern Roman catholic Church?
So "Historic/Apostolic" Theology would have been pre mill?
Do both believe in the Second Coming, and if yes, will he be coming back to earth, just as he said he will one day?
The Law: All or Nothing? Done Away or Still Today?
There is not a third, modified choice. Not according to Christ's Promise
Here is His promise:
“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled." - Matt. 5:17-18
You may need to read this several times, slowly, to let the point of this article...
I'd like to change the subject a bit and discuss a topic that is never spoken of in Christian Circles.
To begin with, let me say that I am a Born Again Christian. I do believe in the Lord and have accepted Jesus as my Savior. I also accept the Word in that when a believer dies they immediately find themselves in the presence of the Lord. I also believe that when the rich man died and opened his eyes he was in torment. Really, I fully believe this as I do the entire Word of God.
I came back to Baptist Board on purpose, but found very little going on at this moment ... in the domain where I am restricted to work 'cause I'm a believer of the Word, "ONE baptism" and "feast of SABBATHS' ". Nevertheless thank you, Baptist Board! I am truly grateful. May God bless you for allowing this rebel this opportunity to open up his heart once more on these cyber pages.
My time may be running out fast; only God knows…
I came back with a purpose to let the Word of God be...
Before we venture too far into this discussion, lets assume the Old Testament Saints obtained "approval" through faith and upon physical death were taken to "Abraham's bosom." Since no one entered heaven before Christ came to earth (John 3:13) Abraham" bosom was some sort of "holding cell" for the saints God set aside for salvation.
So the question is, how do we understand Hebrews 11, especially 11:39-40. Did Christ empty out Abraham's bosom and take the saints to Paradise, the third...
Nebraska Man was named in 1922 from a humanlike tooth which had been found in Nebraska. As creationists tell the story, evolutionists used one tooth to build an entire species of primitive man, complete with illustrations of him and his family, before further excavations revealed the tooth to belong to a peccary, an animal similar to (and closely related to) pigs.
I would say this site isn't a creationists site, far from it....
Could God somehow had "limited" Himself to knowing All possible outcomes at all times, but allow for man to choose the decision and than God responds according to the best Plan he had for each decision made?
Not talking about when He direct intervenes, like when he had preordained the coming of Jesus, death and resurrection, but referring to those times he would 'allow" things to occur?
IF Death of Christ provided for unlimited atonement, than wouldn't a logical conclusion also be a form/type of Christian Universalism?
those who believe in this view Limited Atonement as making God a liar, as death of Christ provided for just his own to get saved by it, while hold God is not really offering gospel to everyone...
But wouldn't holding to unlimited atonment force one to a Universalism viewpoint?
He also said that the Apostles did NOT choose Him, but that he did them...
he would receive all those that the Father would give Him, and eternally keep them...
Is this a direct reference by the Lord to divine election of God?
