Strong's G4138 transliterated as "plērōma" has two primary meanings:
a) That which fills a container or vessel
b) The container or vessel that was filled.
Thus when you see the word "fullness" in scripture, you must interpret which meaning is in view, and if it appears to be the filling material or component, you must consider what that material might be.
In Matthew 9:16 (also Mark 2:21) the word is translated "patch" thus indicating the material used to "fill" the torn garment. Here...
Where does this actually support total depravity? Is there anything before this passage or after it that states this is how man is before Salvation?
Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
Rom 3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Rom 3:13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they...

Well, since my thread on Greek grammars was a repeat, let's try one on books about Bible translation. Now I don't really want to do the KJVO debate on this thread, so please don't post stuff like James White's The King James Only Controversy. On the other hand, secular works on translation theory are welcome, and I'll post some of those myself.
First of all, a good book presenting the "essentially literal" methodology is Translating Truth, by four authors: Wayne Grudem, Leland Ryken, C....
.....why must it then be credited as righteousness?
Take a look at the following passages.
Gen. 15:6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
Rom. 4:2 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God.a 3 What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Rom. 4:5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as...
The challenge I am putting up here in the OP is for anyone to show even one scripture that says God's 4th Commandment of the 10 commandments (Exodus 20:8-11) which was spoken and written by God himself to his people, has been abolished and we are now commanded to keep Sunday as a Holy day.
Can anyone please show me where in all the bible does is say (SOLA SCRIPTURA; Scripture only please)...
1. That God's 4th commandments 7th day Sabbath has been abolished?
2. That Jesus is a Sabbath?
Okay, so I wanted to start a new discussion so I can hear from other people about this. It seems a bit silly, but I was just wondering.
Ever since the invention of vaccines for preventable diseases, infant mortality rates have dropped by about 74%. Before the 1950s, childhood death rates used to be 1500 per million due to diseases like measles and smallpox.
But now babies don't have to suffer and die from diseases like that. But nowadays many parents would rather see their children in...
Many believers of late are of the notion that “sanctification” is a process involving the completion of one’s salvation, and that one cannot know for certain when, or even if one is or will be saved until this sanctification process is complete! Be encouraged, dearly beloved in Christ to know that at the moment one is brought to faith in Christ, all within is complete and entire concerning “all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2Pe 1:3), which most importantly...
Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of Christ.
If election is not a predetermined choice by God in eternity past to decide who will be saved. Then what about people who never have an opportunity to hear the word of Christ? Was it their free will choice to reject the Gospel if they never have a chance to hear the Gospel in the first place?
There are two or three views. Water, the Spirit or the Body of Chrisr (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). What I would like to see are, as much as possible definitve explainations for each. Where I would be able to give a defence for each view. It is my view, the term for baptism, unqualified, refers to water. So you know in advance where I am coming from.
