In this chapter, we have a very detailed account of The Person and Work of The Holy Spirit. There are some, who teach that “the Spirit”, is not a “Personal Being”, and is therefore “a spirit”, and equal to “the force” of God. This chapter in 2 Corinthians shows this teaching to be heresy, and to be rejected as, what Paul calls, “a teaching of demons”.
3, αλλα πνευματος…ἀλλὰ πνεύματι θεοῦ ζῶντος, “but of the Spirit…but the Spirit of the Living God”
6, τὸ δὲ πνεῦμα ζῳοποιεῖ, “Now the Spirit...

Christianity Today: Southern Baptists Prep for Biggest Convention in 24 Years
"more than 12,600 Southern Baptists plan to attend this year in Nashville, the convention’s biggest turnout since 1997....In April, the SBC announced that the meeting had moved from the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center to the Music City Center in downtown Nashville to accommodate the...
A little project now that we are back in strict lockdown. I did browse the internet for better options, but if my father-in-law's copy of Dobson's NT Greek was good enough for students back in the day, then it might just be good enough for me. The introduction boldly claims that if you do two lessons a day (except Sundays) you'll finish the book in a month! Posting for accountability, and just in case anyone out there wants to share the same challenge...
Are miracles always instantaneous?  Miracles are perfect and produce perfection. They are also instantaneous. John, I wanted to take this out of the context of the endless Bible Versions debate to discuss on its on merit. I hope you do not mind.
There are some miracles that might not be considered instantaneous -- that is, some miracles for which people have made this claim. Here are three which I have heard.
Luke 17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the...
1 Corinthians 10:9
“We must not put the Christ to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents”
This verse is a clear quotation from the Old Testament passage in Numbers, where it reads:
“Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is...
A good chunk of people that hold only to the KJB do not believe the translators had special revelation but that the inspiration is through perfect preservation.
Continuing the discussion (this post, brother, warrants exploration).
Many KJVO friends of mine share this view.
I suggest there is no difference between "special revelation" and "perfect preservation" in this case (in the context of KJVO). The only way the KJVO is correct is through a special revelation (providing a perfect...
I have so long endeavored to comprehend Hebrews, believing myself to have salvation for my faith in Christ and the gospel, but not discerning the meaning of the epistle, because of the warnings that taken together confound my understanding, having searched out sundry interpretations thereof, but being unable to settle on one for contradictions within them, which so long disturbed me because of my fear I was lost.
So what do you think is the meaning of Hebrews and its warning passages?
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)
Here Jesus Christ is the Speaker, Who calls Himself “ὁ Παντοκράτωρ”, THE ALMIGHTY.
It is very clear from this chapter, and from others, that the Speaker here is the Lord Jesus Christ, and not as some suppose, God the Father.
In verse 1 we read, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”, and in verse 2, “and to the testimony of Jesus Christ”. Then in...
