The Apostle's Creed contains this faith affirmation: "I believe in the communion of saints." The doctrine of the Communion of Saints refers to the interconnected community, living and dead, of all saints on Earth, in Heaven, and yes, even in Purgatory. Hebrews 12:1-2 provides one biblical anchor for this inspiring doctrine:
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses ("martyres"), let us also lay aside every weight and sin that clings so closely, and let us run with...
I am new to the forum, 18 years old, from Bulgaria and a believer since last year. The question is stated in the topic title so I am going to give a bit of a backgrwound info.
Our senior pastor allows his wife to preach (she is also a pastor according to the web page of the church) and for some time now there is even another woman from the church that gives sermons sometimes. It seems like women are allowed in the church leadership too (can't 100% confirm since I am not aware who...
In Hebrews 6:6, why does ". . . And they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame," not disprove limited atonement? Having never been saved in the first place.
I couldn't let this question slide with so many groups and solo artists flooding the airways and Christian networks. I am going to do this question a wee bit different in that I like to know who your favorite solo artist is, and your favorite group. And if you have more than one group or one artist, byt all means list them too, but please place them in order or rank of your preference. Let's keep the list of artists' or groups to a maximum of three in each.
Have fun. I look forward to...
The Baptist Board and other similar message boards are replete with activity debating some nuance of Calvinism and Arminianism. How many of you engage in Calvinism-Arminianism debates on a regular basis outside of the Baptist Board? Is it just in this venue that you let your debate skills run free or is it the weekly topic in your church, Sunday school, or small group? How about among family, friends, and co-workers? Inquiring minds want to know.
The Domino Theory of Scripture teaches that seekers face a stark choice: either they accept the doctrine of biblical inerrancy or they have no grounds for accepting the Bible and its Gospel as their authority for faith and life and as their guidebook to salvation. This position is based on the problem of the slippery slope: Fundamentalists argue that once one text is deemed erroneous (historically, scientifically, ethically, theologically, or as a contradiction of other biblical texts),...

Those chosen had not bowed the knee when chosen. Thus a gracious choice based on faith and not works.
The Archangel said:
This is not what Paul says; it is not what 1 Kings 19 says. I know you want it to say what you claim it says, but you’re attempting to label a triangle as a square by reading into the text that they are the same thing.
(NASB Romans 11:4-5) 4 But what is the divine response to him? “I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not...
In a previous thread, @Revmitchell presented the following OP. I didn't present in that thread, nor did I read through all the responses but considered that his presentation set out in the OP did need a bit more consideration.
Here is what he wrote with some of my own remarks between paragraphs.
What has been happening and even recently is that what is referred to as "Free-Will" is often misrepresented and then argued against based on the misrepresentation. This is a logical...
