On another thread the discussion drifted (my fault this time) to N.T. Wright.
I made the comment that at one time most scholars considered Wright the expert in Pauline theology. These scholars include John Piper (one of my favorites), J.I. Packer, and R.C. Sproul to name a few. The time he was considered an expert was prior to his opinion that the Reformers had misjudged Pauline justification by allowing their circumstances with the Roman Catholic Church to influence their view of first...
The central doctrine in Calvinsm is Total inability.
The central point in Christianity is the death , burial and resurrection.
Which one still exists without the doctrine of Total inability?
Which one cannot exist without the doctrine of Total inability?
1st Corinthians 15, the claim is universal atonement is part of the Gospel, and therefor is needed for salvation.
Since Paul is reminding them about what he preached,
Paul actually told them "Christ died for their sins", while they were lost.
How could Paul do they and believe in a limited atonement?
Does 1st Corinthians teach universal atonement is part of the gospel, and therefor needed for salvation?
Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you...
“Tell me how man is not totally depraved, and totally unable to believe prior to regeneration in light of these passages: Rom. 8:7; 1 Cor. 2:14, Eph. 2:1; and Col. 1:13. How would you reconcile the Greek work "nekros" in describing the sinners spiritual condition?”
This is a typical off the shelf deflection of truth posited over and over by various Calvinist accolades.
What does “totally depraved” mean according to Calvinism. It means we are in a spiritually dead condition, with dead...
I am a longtime student of history. I have wracked my brain periodically for four years, since becoming a Christian, to understand the End Times prophecies of the bible. I was streaming a sermon on Sunday when I was taught an interesting factoid. To have an understanding of Revelation it is best to use imagery from the Old Testament since the prophecy was written to those familiar with the orally given Old Testament. Another trick is to identify one thing you do get in Revelation's imagery...
Arguments often used for the TR over the Byzantine/Majority text are:
1. The Byz. leaves out stuff.
2. The TR is better doctrinally.
In translating the TR into Japanese (the first ever such translation into modern Japanese), I compared the Robinson/Pierpont Byz. Textform 1st ed. with the TR, often referencing both the Stephanus & Scrivener TR. On this thread I will share the notes on Matthew I made about 15 years ago.
At that time I just had digital copies of the 1st ed. of the Byz., so...
...For he that has entered into His rest, he has also ceased from his own works as God did from His work....
Does this verse explain why we no longer view Saturday as the Sabbath?
The “works” that have ceased are the keeping of OT law, including Sabbath day, as a way of pleasing God.
Peace to you
I presume most or all of us who read this forum do believe there was a great flood. But do we believe everything about it as it is recorded in Genesis? are some of the common ideas assumptions? does believing it simply require blind faith? I will refrain for now from divulging why I am posting this poll at this time and on this forum.
Some KJV-only authors especially appeal to Matthew 4:4 as justification for a KJV-only view and in order to assert that there must be a every-word perfect Bible.
David Sorenson asserted: “If God, from the time of Moses onward, required His people to live by every word which He has uttered in His Word, it therefore follows that God has preserved each and every one of those words” (God’s Perfect Book, p. 85). David Sorenson asked: “How can a just God require us to live by every word He...
Many have argued against perfection, but yet everyone knows that mans carnal imperfection or sin will not be let into heaven. Christ Himself says to be ye perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
and go and sin no more...
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
So how is this 'Gordian Knot' to be resolved?
