First, let me say that I do not believe Scripture teaches there is "an immortal soul" in a context dealing with man's make-up. I take the view that man is a two-part being, made up of body and Spirit, and is a soul, rather than "has a soul."
I do believe that immortality is promised to those who believe, hence, when we enter into eternity, we will be "immortal souls" (persons)...

Orthodox theologians from theology schools in Greece and the US support decision of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria to reinstate the ancient order of ministry
“The historical, theological, canonical, and liturgical validity of the order of deaconess has been attested to time and again in recent years by Orthodox scholars and theologians”, wrote the scholars in a statement published on October 31.
“The reinstitution of the female diaconate does not constitute an innovation, as some...
In another thread, some got upset at an Eastern Orthodox translator not capitalizing the last word in the verse as a way of demonstrating why the issue settled at Nicaea could have become controversial to begin with (apparently the Greek does not distinguish by capitalization?).
What do you think of English Bibles that do not capitalize God?
What would you think of not capitalizing Word/Logos in the same verse (John 1:1)?
It will instead read Canaan now.
"The NASB is one of the most widely used modern translations of the Bible....Why would this fine translation introduce the word 'Palestine' in its section headings?"
"when it comes to Bible history, especially Old Testament history, there is no such entity known as 'Palestine,' and there is absolutely no justification for its presence in the section headings of the NASB (or,...
What does the Scriptures teach about slavery?
44“ ‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. 45You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. 46You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Paul states something very interesting here, Those whom He-God did foreknow, this is a place of contention for many. Foreknowledge what does it mean?
Those He did proginōskō that is,...
I have had doubts about soul liberty for weeks now and I know that I shouldn't embrace something I have doubts in. The reason for these doubts is simple: does soul liberty allow wayward people to to go undisciplined?
As I have researched soul liberty it is usually allowed that churches be allowed to discipline members who break from sound doctrine. However, for some reason I very rarely ever see this except in regards to a church leader who has viewpoints that are squarely against the...
In another thread, Kyredneck seemed to be advocating salvation by works. I was in the process of making a reply when the thread was closed, and rather than type the whole thing out again, I thought I would offer this, which I wrote on my blog some years ago.
Matthew 5:20. ‘For I say to you that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of Heaven.’
I think this verse must be one of the scariest texts in the...
Many have heard about the pre-Trib Rapture of the Church in 1 Thessolonians 4. Admittedly, not all agree with it. But, there is second Rapture after the Tribulation in Matthew 24. These "elect ones" see the Lord "coming in the clouds of heaven" "with a great sound of a trumpet" and his angels gather them "from one end of heaven to the other."
The faithful pre-Trib and post-Trib saints will reign with Christ in his earthly Kingdom.
The immature, worldly, baby-like, -carnal saints- (perfect...
