NEW ORLEANS (LBM) – A noted scholar has published a focused assessment on study notes in the newly published Christian Standard Bible (CSB), saying non-Calvinists “will be disappointed” due to the heavy Calvinistic leaning in some of its comments about passages that address salvation.
Adam Harwood, associate professor of theology with the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, described the actual Bible translation as a “theologically conservative resource,” but took issue with the...
There is a point in some of our lives, if not all, when the message of the gospel hit us squarely between the eyes or pierced our hearts, and our physical body was pumping adrenaline like that of a marathon runner. I grew up in church hearing the gospel for years, as well as having it backed up by my mother in our private conversations. At fourteen years of age, it struck home. The questions poured out of me and mom would answer as best she knew how with help from scripture. The heart...
Name the first sin mentioned in the Bible according to Orthodox Judaism? It is found within the first 3 chapters of Genesis. Being able to read Hebrew would make this easier. This sin also leads God to "curse" something also found in the first 3 chapters of Genesis.
A little history here. I was born Jewish and raised in the Orthodox Community. I was an Orthodox Rabbi at one point in my life.
I do not have an ax to grind here and just hoping for some light bantering after a few posts I...
Ordered a copy of the book by this name on eBay and await to read it. But also came across another article.
A Statement on Divorce & Remarriage in the Life of Bethlehem Baptist Church | Desiring God
1. A believer and unbeliever should not marry (1 Cor. 7:39; 2 Cor. 6:14-15).
2. Since death breaks the marriage bond (Rom. 7:2-3; 1 Cor. 7:39), remarriage is permissible without sin for a believing widow or widower, if the marriage is with another believer.
3. Divorce may be...
There have been threads recently about 'going to heaven,' "soul sleep," the millenial kindgom, and the eternal torment of the wicked. This is a poll to see what Christians [at least self-identified thus] think about this in the simplicity of the poll function allowed on this site.
This thread is motivated by an email I recently received criticizing me for being a staunch proponent of the preaching of the Gospel.
Romans 10:17 states that " faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ", i.e. the Gospel. This is a truth that should be precious to all Christians, but especially Calvinists.
One frequent criticism made about Calvinists is that they proclaim the Gospel in vain. After all, since only the Elect will be saved, and God has chosen His elect from...
I will focus on R rated movies, but the question could entail all movies. The answer to the question may depend on the movie and or the person as this could be a romans issue where to some people a certain film is a sin, and to others it may not be. I imagine that to the Fundamentalist Baptist any R rated movie would be a sin to watch. And on the other side there are those claiming to be evangelical that will watch anything and claim its all okay.
On the Way of the Master radio podcast I...
I heard a spot radio announcement by a grace movement church in which it was stated that they used only the KJV. This caused me to visit and, for a while, I was hooked. Finally, I realized that it was little more than a cult. No, I wouldn't go so far as to call it a "cult," but the veneration bestowed on John Nelson Darby and C.I. Scofield would almost warrant that designation. The nineteenth century certainly had its share of cults and false teachers. Anyway, when I found out what...
The Biblical Doctrine of Election
Daniel B. Wallace has posted “My Understanding of the Biblical Doctrine of Election” and the following presents a discussion of the merits of that view. In Doctor Wallace’s words, “having a good conscious about the text does not require agreement with others; it requires being faithful to pursue truth at all costs to the best of your abilities.” Amen to that!
Daniel is a man of integrity and honesty and has provided the world much clarity concerning the...
If righteousness (Gal 2:21) and redemption came by the Law then only Jews could ever be saved, for Gentiles were never under it prior to its annulling (Heb 7:18, 19; 8:7; 10:9). Until all the Law would be “fulfilled” it could not “pass” (Mat 5:18), thus its passing came when Christ fulfilled, or, finished it (Rom 10:4). Remember, it is Christ’s words that “shall not pass away” (Mat 24:35), not the Mosaic Law!
In this article it makes a point that since the Law did not require one’s death...
