Lent - do you celebrate?Why or why not?
(and "because it is a Catholic belief" is NOT acceptable
if that is your reason - than you need to start having services on Sat
(ie become 7th Baptist) because the RC worship on Sunday!
Etymology Lent - Wikipedia
Lent observers, including a confraternity of penitents, carrying out a street procession during Holy Week, in Granada, Nicaragua. The violet color is often associated with penance and detachment. Similar Christian penitential practice is seen in other...
The Distinction Between the Lord's New Testament Church and the Kingdom of GOD.The Distinction Between the Church and the Kingdom.
Those who believe the theory of the existence of a universal, invisible church, for all practical purposes confuse the church and the Kingdom.
But the Bible never confuses the terms or uses them interchangeably.
"It will be readily inferred ... that the word ekklesia would call up, in the mind of an ordinary Greek, or Greek-speaking person, a conception not only not identical with, but in every particular the antithesis of, that...

Symbols in the word of God.This is a type of study many others have done. What I have observed is it is plagued speculations.
If you have an understanding of a Biblical symbol please present it. And if you disagree present the bases for that disagreement.
Revelation is commonly believed to be largely symbollic.
Harmony or Hostility?Sometimes you can find two verses that read very much the same in two different books, but then you also find the scholars think one verse was altered to read like another by a copyist in a misguided effort to present the true harmony of scripture. Translators might be tempted to engage in emendation too, and that of course would be very wrong.
One of the oft repeated phrases found in the New Testament is "from (or before) the foundation of the world." This phrase is found about 10 times....
The Biblical Definition of JUSTIFICATION“The Biblical Definition of JUSTIFICATION”
If you ask the nominal professing Christian to give you a Biblical definition of justification, many of them don’t even know what justification is; much less understand the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY of believing this Biblical truth. The Apostle Paul said: “Brethren, my hearts desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.” (Romans 10:1) These people that Paul declared to be lost, knew the absolute necessity of justification...
Do you think John the Baptist was the first Baptist?Author: Do you think John the Baptist was the first Baptist?
Reader: What kind of Baptist do you mean? Southern? American? Conservative? General? What do you mean by Baptist?
A: I mean New Testament Baptist. Forget about twentieth-century Baptists for now. Was John the first New Testament Baptist, or the first baptizer? If he was not the first Baptist, who was?
R: I have read that John copied the previous proselyte baptism. If so, he was not the first to baptize.
A: But Jesus said, by...
Biblical Assertion"God hath endued the will of man with that natural liberty and power of acting upon choice, that it is neither forced, nor by any necessity of nature determined to do good or evil."
One of the verses cited to support the assertion is Deuteronomy 30:19 which says God sets before us the choice of life or death. This is contrary to the doctrine of Total Spiritual Inability, which says we will only choose death.
Now this choice was set before us after the Fall, and therefore our being...
Adam and EveIn Genesis 3 we read about Eve eating of the fruit --- and then giving it to her husband.
Suppose, Adam refuse to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil?
What would have happened?
Would Eve have been kicked out the Garden?
Would Adam have been allowed to stay?
Open for discussion
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A C vs A DISCUSSION!!!
Were Old Testament Saints Placed in a "Holding Cell" Before the Cross?During the past year I came across some people on Facebook who advocate that Old Testament saints were not justified before Christ finished His work on the cross. It was hard to try to pin them down but the implication of what they were teaching was that Old Testament saints were placed in what I would describe as a "holding cell" for hundreds, even thousands of years, until Christ finished His work on the cross.
Is there anyone here who advocates such a thing or would like to try to defend...
