Every once in a while you come across an amazing problem with translation. This once boggles the mind.
Hebrews 11:11 (NASB95) By faith even Sarah herself received [fn]ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.
And the NASB footnote reads "power for the laying down of seed."
Now take a look at the NET rendering of the very same text!
11:11 By faith, even though Sarah herself was barren and he was too old, he received the...
I understand the reservations some have about teachers like Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, but if God is sovereign over salvation, can't God use their preaching to draw His elect unto Himself anyway, despite how questionable certain particulars of their theology might be?
Also, are there any contemporary preachers who focus on the power of positive thinking who don't have a questionable theology?
11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
The Atonement of Christ has reconciled the elect world to God. It secured and ensured for it [ the elect world] every spiritual blessing needed to live unto God and for His Glory through Jesus Christ.
Even before the elect are born into this world as sinners, they have already [by the blood of Christ] been reconciled to God, it will now be a matter of time for it...
If, as Christians, we are saved by grace through faith, rather than the exactness of our theology, and if God is the one who ultimately decides who is saved and who isn’t, then we aren’t in a position to say that Catholics are unsaved.
There is a difference between salvation and the assurance of salvation. I can’t be Catholic because Catholics aren’t allowed to believe that they have assurance of salvation, which would be considered the sin of presumption.
This is from the Council of...
In at least six passages, the Spirit speaks about when the Israelites worshiped a golden calf in the wilderness (Exod. 32; Deut. 9; Neh. 9; Ps. 106; Acts 7; and 1 Cor. 10.) Interpreters debate whom they worshiped in the Golden Calf incident (GCI) when they worshiped the calf.
Did they worship Yahweh, one or more false gods, or both in the GCI when they worshiped the calf?
There are several local preachers in my area that seem to have a voice or speech defect. Shortly after they begin a sermon, their speech becomes like"And on the third day..AH..He was resurrected..AH..and left the tomb..AH..in His own body..AH..
All those "AHs & UHs" are totally unnecessary. They make the sermon longer & distract from its message. I don't know if they learn that stuff in some seminary class, or what. Can anyone provide some intel ?
I am a supporter of the bible broadcasting network (BBNRadio.org) and am also supported a niece in going to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. I am also very active in the media ministry at work at have shared the gospel with many. I am Pentecostal, but not anti-Baptist. One guy, after reading one of the books I gave him, wanted to get saved, but not in the Pentecostal Holiness church that I attended. He explained to me that he was brought up Baptist and would rather go to a Baptist...
This thread concerns itself with several issues.
What is a biblical Apostle as spoken of in Eph2:20?
What if anything makes them Unique from other Christians?
Can a biblical case be offered to show a difference?
Are all Christians sent ones?
Are church planters Apostles?
Are missionaries Apostles?
Are there biblical Apostles today?
Were there "signs of an Apostle"?
Are we to expect new revelation today?
Are we to look for Apostolic miracles today?
11 And unclean spirits,...
