There are four sections of scripture I want to deal with in regard to the question found in the OP.
1. Ezek. 18
2. Rom. 5:12-19
4. Gen. 1-2
A. Ezek. 18 deals with "fathers" and "children" who are equally fallen human beings equally condemned under law as sinners. Hence, neither can be held accountable for the others sins as both are equally condemned under the very same divine justice. In direct contrast both Genesis 1-2 and Romans 5:12-19 are dealing with two specific men who...
OK I want to try this again.
Here was my question from the free will thread :
May I ask an aside question.
Theres quite a few calvinists in here and I'm getting all sorts of different vibes on how we're describing free will.
So may I ask.
In calvinism. Did God predestinate and predetermine that Adam would fall in the garden.
did Adam do it of his own free choice and God simply forknew the events and called them acceptable.
Did God move the chess piece or oberserve the chess...
Continuationism is the belief that all the spiritual gifts, including healings, tongues, and miracles, are still in operation today, just as they were in the days of the early church. A continuationist believes that the spiritual gifts have “continued” unabated since the Day of Pentecost and that today’s church has access to all the spiritual gifts mentioned in the Bible.
Argument for and against?
"Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride."
Some people think the leviathan is the behemoth or a dinosaur. The Leviathan is never associated with the Behemoth which is a water OX, probably the largest animal to roam the waters around Israel at that time.
Job 40:15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
Dinosaurs were pre-Adam, this creature "the Leviathan" was...
A pastor once said truth delights to be investigated.
That echoes what we read in Eph4,5...walk as children of light. Live as Children of light.
A question was raised is this why Christ died?
Oh yes, we are to be our brothers keeper.
We are to let our yes be yes, no no.
On a board where ideas are to be offered publically there should be no censorship eccepting course words, and profane blasphemy.
Some get over heated, meltdown post things they should not..ok..at least we...
I was taught many years ago that it is not wise to base a doctrine on one verse of Scripture.
Seems that each time I hear or read a teaching on the end times, 70th week of Daniel, or the tribulation period, Daniel 9:27 is quoted as proof that there is a seven year tribulation period coming.
The Anti-Christ will make a peace treaty with Israel for seven years that he will break after three and a half years at which time great tribulation comes.
Can anyone prove to me from Scripture that this...
Discussing and debating theology should have a two-fold goal. 1. To conform our theology to truth of the Word of God. 2. To conform our behavior to live in light of the Word. The recently closed thread I started on Penal Substitution was to make a biblical defense of the doctrine. That was accomplished. The subsequent discussion went off the rails about halfway through the thread. I regret that. What I want to do in this thread is to discuss the practical aspects of Penal Substitution. How...
There seems to be a heavy focus on the word draw from the anti-calvinist crowd here. Calvinists know that the Greek underlying the word draw in passages in question (such as John 6) has a literal meaning of drag.
Non-Calvinists cry foul and say experts chose the word draw and not drag so we must be wrong. They say we "re-define" words. But do we really?
Let's look at the first two definitions of the word:
draw \ˈdrȯ\ verb
drew \ˈdrü\; drawn \ˈdrȯn, ˈdrän\; draw•ing [Middle English...
What do you think about this quote by Spurgeon on Baptist history?
c. h. spurgeon on baptist perpetuity
"We believe that the Baptists are the original Christians. We did not commence our existence at the reformation, we were reformers before Luther or Calvin were born; we never came from the Church of Rome, for we were never in it, but we have an unbroken line up to the apostles themselves. We have always existed from the very days of Christ, and our principles, sometimes veiled and...
