Christians today have the benefit of so much history to confirm our faith that the Jesus that walked the earth 2000 years ago was God. If Jesus came today instead of 2000 years ago, how would you determine that a person that claimed to be God was really God? Certainly it has to be more than just a claim to be God, because many claimed this before Jesus came and many have done so even after he came. So how did Jesus convince people that he was the Messiah? I contend that Jesus followed OT...
Is Jesus God or is He the son of God? This question has been asked recently and the quesion is loaded. A Jew I would expect would say no.
One of the issues here is past, present and future tense; was Jesus Elohim, I would say yes; was Jesus Jehovah, I do not know; was Jesus God when He walked the earth, His name was God with us; and He did raise himself from the dead; since His resurrection Jesus has a new name.
I do not know what the people who ask this question are actually asking. The...
Should Reformed preachers be stoned if they make a mistake while preaching? If the preacher is talking and he accidentally calls Elisah Elijah, should we pick up stones to throw at him?
That question is tongue in cheek. What I would like to talk about is the way so many in the Reformed movement, following in the footsteps of John Calvin, have redefined the words 'prophesy', 'prophecy', and 'prophet'.
If we look at how the words are used in scripture, they prophesying involves...
Whether this was a vision of things to come or it actually happened that moment I do not know. For it was seen only for a moment and you would do well to pay attention to it not in fear of doom and gloom but as to a light shining in the darkness for that is exactly what it was and is!
I have searched since that time--high and low--here and there and no one else has reported that night.
Some have speculated it and gone a little overboard on it. Scientists have down played it. Government's...
A few facts and a conclusion:
Hummingbirds live in the Americas but not in the Old World of Europe, Africa or Asia.
There are hundreds of hummingbird species in South America but only 15 to 17 in North America.
Conclusion: It looks like hummingbirds evolved in South America.
The Creationist view:
According to Creationists, there were only two hummingbirds on earth when Noah and the Ark landed on Mt. Ararat, or the Ararat range. This happened a few thousand years ago.
If all the...
I wanted to ask, what do you believe is the meaning of these passages by the apostle?
1 Corinthians 6:12, 1 Corinthians 10:23
Does this mean that there is no law against anything he does? How are "all things lawful" to him? At Romans 7:19 he talks about the "evil that he does": is the "evil that he does" lawful for him to do? I'm curious as to what "all things are lawful for me" means in relation to, the law and the works of the law? And how this relates to, "sin" and the "legality" of sin...
what is actually a fair tax. Should christians have to pay tithe on top of tax? Isnt tithing a form of tax, so if someones paying tithe and tax both isnt that a fair chunk of someomes wage?
What is your tax rate in your country and what percentage are you paying? Does your govt put taxes on everything?
And do these taxes get used for the welfare of everyone or do you think its wasted or spent on luxuries?
I'd like to know. And is it christian to avoid paying tax. Or maybe you can never...
"What has not been assumed has not been redeemed".
-Athanasius of Alexandria
One of the doctrines which really perplexes me from some Protestant viewpoints is the teaching that human nature is totally depraved. The quote above illustrates the main reason that I reject the doctrine. If man is totally depraved in his nature, then unless Christ is totally depraved, then Christ is not truly human, because He does not have a human nature.
In September 2017 the sign in the stars will appear. The virgin Virgo will be clothed with the sun with the moon under her feet and she will have a crown of 12 stars over her head.
Astrologists say this is once in creation event in significance the the virgin will be pregnant with child for exactly 9 months. Jupiter the king planet will be in Virgos womb and after 9 months come out.
Now this is the eye opener for "the generation that sees". There are seven generations found in scripture...
