Is it ever appropriate for a Christian to lie about another Christian if that other is wrong?
This seems to be a reoccurring thing on this forum. People think that it is alright to lie about other people if that other person is opposed to what they believe is correct doctrine.
It may seem a rhetorical and trolling topic at the start….but think about it.
If a Christian is advocating a false doctrine that may mislead other Christians, is it OK to lie about that person in order to save the...
I think that we’ve all heard the term “caged staged Calvinist” (if not, do an internet search).
My question is whether or not this is actually a stage (maturity) or just the way some are (cult-like).
I’ve assumed that the term refers to a group of immature Calvinists who are, as Spurgeon put it, like Horatio wit his telescope. But the more I am here the more I wonder if this is not a class of Calvinists that will never mature to a fuller truth.
Is "Cage Staged" a stage/ matureity issue or...
Samuel was the prayed-for son of Hannah and Elkanah (1 Samuel 1). He was born at Ramathaim-zophim, but grew up with Eli the priest in Shiloh. After Eli’s death, Samuel seems to have operated as high priest, but the Bible never directly says so, as far as I can tell. Rather than being a descendant of Aaron, of whom were the high priests, Samuel was a descendant of Kohath:
1 Chronicles 6:22-28 The sons of Kohath; Amminadab his son, Korah his son, Assir his son, Elkanah his son, and Ebiasaph...
Answers in Genesis says that there are no truly red, yellow, black, & white people:
'You see, all have different amounts of the main pigment--melanin, which is brown. How much is largely determined by our genetics....
'So, let's teach our kids to say, "Shades of brown from dark to light, all are precious in his sight."
More Baptist churches are moving to elder leadership. Here are some questions some may desire to have answered.
Who on the BB has experience with elder leadership in a Baptist Church?
What guidelines of responsibilities were laid out?
How or were committees used Nd in what manner?
What Scripture authority was used to support elder leadership?
What problems were encountered and how where they settled?
How were elders selected - by congregation, appointment by other elders, by...
I think that we are often hard on the group of people to which we belong because we have an intimate knowledge of that group and see the issues associated therein. I typically associate with a Calvinistic minded segment when the topic tends towards soteriological predestination within Christian philosophy because this segment most represents my view (I’d lean towards Edwards on the issue, which would make me a bit left of center).
What I’ve noticed, both in the “real world” and on the...
When I moved and was looking for a church home I experienced too much of what Alistair Begg describes in this short video. Worship is not about what you feel, it is about what you know. There are times I have gone into worship feeling anything but worshipful. If I depended on my feelings I would have been better off staying home. Anyway, if you have time, give this video a watch.
Some JW's came by the housed this week and I did not mention this verse that show God commenting of being on the cross from the OT.. quite devastating to those who do not accept Jesus as GOD
I forgot to mention it to them and realize I might not have shared this on the Board although othets might have. It is very useful
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they...
When the American is flown to the right and higher than the Christian Flag and the American Flag is order to be flown at half mast there seems to be no part of the national flag code that clarifies whether to lower the Christian flag or not except to specify that no flag be flown above the American Flag. A half mast declaration by the President signifies that the nation enter into a period of mourning. At these time we should leave the Christian Flag at full mast to signify that we are...
Matthew 28:1-10 says that when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb that she was told by an angel that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee. Matthew then says that she ran "with great joy" to tell the disciples and while on the way that she met the Messiah (this occurred before she got to the disciples).
However, John 20:1 and 2 say that when she came to the tomb and didn’t find the Messiah there, that she ran to the disciples and told them that He had been taken away and that she...
