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 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...
The 1000 Year Reign of Christ ?
Did you know that the phrase "1000 Year Reign of Christ" does not appear anywhere in scripture? Nor the word "millenium"? Does this surprise you? Notice in the above title, we did not spell out the word "thousand," but used "1000" instead. This is because numbers are fictions in numerical form and have no substance. And the "1000 year reign of Christ" is also a fiction according to Scripture, which has has no substance. It is born and bred...
Sunni Muslims believe Jesus will return in Syria to battle the anti-Christ.
There was an Iman that lived in the 9th century. He was from Iran. He wrote the what is know as Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith Number 6924.
What did he say about the return of Jesus?
That He will return to battle Satan in Syria!
"The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq."
Dabiq is on the Syrian\Turkish border.
It is at the epicenter of the war in Syria....
I have been a Christian for pretty much my whole life. I'm 35.
Recently I've been attempting to nut out whether the attributes of the God I believe in make sense to the actual world we live in. Here is the problem I'm attempting to solve in a way that I feel satisfied.
1. God has no equal, only lesser
2. God only creates lesser creations
3. Every creation is constrained by God in at least one way otherwise the creation would be equal to God
2. God created the devil
3. The devil is...
I wanted to ask if you believe that you chose your beliefs, as opposed to, being compelled by the "evidence" to belief? As I look at my own self, I will admit that I did not choose what I believe, but that as I studied and understood, my belief was, in fact, compelled - that which I believe was irresistible to me.
But if you believe that you chose what to believe- could you tell me what were the alternative choices of belief that you could have chosen to believe instead of what you...
