How do you feel about Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress, who has become somewhat better-known outside Baptist circles in recent years over his political associations? I have my opinions on him, but I think I should hold them back, because my familiarity with and understanding of Jeffress may be limited. I have known of him for only about five years, since the assistant pastor at my church showed Jeffress' "How Can We Know?" video series (also a book, which I later read) in our...
This thread has a simple premise:
What happens if a person declaring Christ as Lord and Savior is not able to pass the Judgment of the Sheep and the Goats at death? Does that prove they never had saving faith? I provide the relevant bible passage below.
I ask to understand the BB's opinions on this issue.
I also ask because contribution to Christian causes of time or money tends to be a low priority for many American Christians, especially for those who do not go to church. Barna...
Am I right that the unforgivable sin (why it's unforgivable) can be explained as a simple logical argument?
I have been taught that the unforgivable sin is for an unbeliever to deny Jesus Christ by resisting the conviction the Holy Spirit gives him. If you do this--resist your conviction to repent and receive Christ as Lord and Savior--then by definition your sin is not forgiven, because it won't be forgiven without Christ. It becomes seemingly a tautology: if you will not have your sin...
Taken from an article by William Short, OFM. I find his prospective (actually the view of the Franciscans, both interesting and provocative.
Christ at the Heart of Reality
“We thank You for as through Your Son You created us, so through Your holy love . . . You brought about His birth.”
At every hour of the day Christian preachers on radio and television send a constant message into thousands of American cars, living rooms, and workplaces: “It’s all about sin!” God sent Jesus Christ into...
HAS GOD'S WORD BEEN PURIFIED SEVEN TIMES? (Part 1)
By John Henry
June 12, 2016
Psalm 12:6-7: "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."
Psalm 119:89: "For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven."
Psalm 119:140: "Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it."
Psalm 119:160: "Thy word is true from the beginning and every...
I ask that question, not that I or anyone on here believes it, but have any of you come across any who hold to this?
I recently joined a 'christiian' forum and they did not allow subjects such as OSAS, tongues, rapture, soul sleep, Cal v. Arm, &c , seeing they do gender quite a lot of heat. I actually sorta like that, seeing it does get tiresome debating it.
So, I decided to start a thread about the Hypostatic Union, thinking we'd be in agreement. WRONG!! One guy, an admin on there, said...
My church's Calvinist theology teaches that salvation cannot be lost. God will not withdraw it. I believe this, since--having been in a churchgoing Christian long enough to develop a theological position--my theology is also Calvinist (but not militantly Calvinist). What about losing one's faith?
At some point relatively recently, I thought about all these people who say they "lost their faith." They allegedly lost their faith a long time ago, after a crisis, etc. Is that just as impossible...
I have compiled the scientific worldview according to my knowledge of it as a former atheist.
The Scientific Worldview
The scientific worldview believes that we should imagine that the universe is simply physical phenomena, which have been proceeding from when time began, and which have been predetermined by scientific laws. All of this existing at many levels of perspective from a galaxy on down to our daily lives on down to a subatomic particle. Thus, our universe is simply a vast, vast...
