I have brought up before how Calvinist do not preach from the heart what they actually believe from the mind. This man points out the glaring problems with Calvinism when trying to speak to a lost person. You can see the Spirit speak out the truth here and there when John is not cautious, but the Calvinist mind in him resist and transgresses back to it's faulty theology. It's like a struggle between the Spirit and the Mind, and he doesn't even realize what is happening through him.
I am a Catholic who embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I attend Saturday Vigil Mass at the local Catholic parish. I also attend the local Baptist Church every Sunday morning. I was Baptized via immersion at that Baptist Church in May 2017 as a public profession of faith that I had embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior. In September 2017 I took a 10 week membership preparation class from the Pastor of Baptist Church. In January 2018 I went before the congregation of that Baptist Church and...
My wife bought me a study bible that had a man called Ray Comfort's study in, it is called the evidence bible. I googled Ray Comfort and there were a lot of posts about how he is heretical.
The Bible PLAINLY defines "turning from their evil way" as works! Ray Comfort defines repentance to mean "turn from your sins", which is another way of saying "turning from your evil way"! Ray says one must turn from their sins and put faith in Jesus to be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 declares:
Romans 3 is quoting the OT. But what passage of the old testiment?
“None is righteous, no, not one;
11no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13“Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14“Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15“Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16in their paths are ruin and misery,
17and the way of...
I would teach the path to the fullness of God as such...
1. The Outer Court - Justification - Faith to enter in.
2. The Altar - Salvation through the cross at Calvary.
3. The Laver - The clean effects of sanctification.
4. Table of Showbread – Daily into the word of God
5. Light at the Lightstand - Faith, hope, charity, joy, grace, love, warmth, etc. With sanctification came a sweet spirit!
6. The Golden Incense Alter - Prayer and Praise meetings.
7. The Holy of Holies - The Shekinah Glory...
Again, it seems that you are side-stepping it, and are simply trying to avoid the ramifications of the problem...that there's something more than a better translation at the heart of most of today's English translation efforts.
Perhaps you are the one who is side-stepping or avoiding the fact that there was other motivations actually involved as reasons for the making of the KJV.
Nicholas Perrin maintained that King James I wanted a new Bible “for certain political and ecclesiastical...
There has been much conversation on the BB about how people who do not hold to Penal Substitution Theory can still view Christ’s death as necessary.
The question is wrong. It is foolish to believe that of all Christians who have lived only a minority who hold to Penal Substitution Theory view the Cross as a necessity insofar as the redemption of mankind.
A better question is - How is it that Christ’s death is “for our sins”?
Some view the Cross as representing the payment for a debt owed...
I have heard preaching all my life about this unfortunate, ill-advised decision that David made. Upon closer examination, I see that there have been liberties taken with the text. Preachers sometimes preach something that simply is not supported by the text.
II Samuel 11:1 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah....
Is the earth only some 6K years old, or is it some 4.5 billion years old? What about the "gap theory"? May we have a "peaceful" discussion about it, free of ad-hominem & "heretic" accusations by either side?
I'll open this: I'm an "old-earther", based upon the many empirical proofs God has placed at our disposal & allowed or even caused us to discover, such as the speeda light & the fact that many stars or galaxies are so far away that it takes their light millions of years to reach us....
