This is something I was thinking about.
Is it O.K., for me to think this?
And for me to want to ask this question?
Why do you think that;
by sowing the acceptance of men changing God's Word,
in the instances of them changing the meaning
and definitions of His Words in the Bible
(and thereby, for example, attempting to disannul
and make void and ineffectual
His instructions on How to Worship Him,
into a practically unknowable, indiscernible
series of words written that mean nothing)...
I've sat in on different seminars over time, and it is amazing to me how many interpretations are based on different interpretations.... what I mean is, people interpret based on what Bible they read, what church they go to, et al. I was a bit amused sitting in on a panel of 5 pastors (1 Methodist, 1 Church of Christ, 1 Southern
Baptist, 1 graduate of the Southwestern Baptist Seminary in FW, and a graduate of the Dallas Theological Seminary. All made a brief statement (about 10...
Dress shoes with blue jeans. I have noticed that blue jeans are worn more and more in church services these days. I like to go in shirt and tie… But will also wear blue jeans along with a nice light weight jacket. I have been trying to determine the best shoes to go with blue jeans and have noticed that no two shoes are alike with this type dress. Dress shoes with blue jeans… Any ideas? Thanks!
Then he said to the woman, “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”
Curse on woman: Pain in child birth and the desire to rule over a man.
Curse on man: The abusive rule over woman.
Both are the effect of sin.
Men, in their sin nature tend toward being abusive. We see this awful tendency in the world and we see it in the church.
Paul specifically tells the women in...
EARLY CHRISTIAN WRITERS AND THE 7,000 YEAR PROPHETIC PLAN
James L. Melton
Before Rome took over and plunged the world into the Dark Ages, it wasn't unusual to find believers preaching pre-millennial doctrine, and some of them even believed in writing. In fact, some even believed that God has a 7,000 year plan with the millennial kingdom of Christ being a Sabbath rest for the earth and the righteous. Here are a few quotes from the first four centuries of church history:
Barnabas - The...
It is because the deniers, generally speaking, do not know what the church of Jesus Christ is and if asked to define it could not do so scripturally. If they are confused about what it is, how are they going to understand its destiny and it's doctrines?
Another reason for the failure to grasp the reality of the rapture of the church of Jesus Christ is because they do not understand that the kingdom of God on the earth is a major theme through the scriptures and their denomination's...
Any of you ever read "The Trail of Blood" by J.M. Carroll?
What was your opinion? I had to read it in a Baptist History, then we were taught the history of Baptists in the several strains in Europe, and I have never thought of that little booklet since. I know that some people consider it gospel truth.
In my learning, Baptism of people who have given a credible profession of Faith is what usually sets me apart from Presbyterians. (And Covenant Theology, Church rule)
However, there are those who would say that baptism by sprinkling or pouring is just as valid.
Now, I disagree. The word means to dip into. It was used of people who dyed cloth, dipping the cloth into dye.
Would your church accept someone who was Baptized by Pouring?
In your opinion, what is the most difficult to interpret or understand in the Bible?
As a young Christion, I really struggled with Hebrews 6:1-6, on whether someone could lose their salvation.
In my middle years, Romans 9 and whether it taught individual election.
In my last few years, I have wrestled with and fought with 1 John 2:2.
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
After reading John Owen, I have come to a place where I...
