Hello, Some of you may remember me from my post about having so many doubts and most recently about my fears of committing the unpardonable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. I am still struggling with whether or not I committed that horrible sin and I still hope and pray that I did not. I still pray for God to have mercy on me if I did. I feel so hard-hearted and it seems that the more I try to get closer to Jesus the more I have evil thoughts against Him and the more I have doubts....
Universal reconciliation. No greater doctrine of love and forgiveness exists. I ask that, for a moment, let's see if the scripture supports the doctrine of universal reconciliation. I will cite verses with brief comments. Imagine for a moment that these passages are all that exist in the scripture. If these passages were the only verses in scripture, would you not walk away thinking, "It's true; universal reconciliation is clearly true"?
Now, bear in mind, I'm not saying "Then it is true"...
Please explain your answers.
I am curious of the end times views on this forum. I would appreciate if you would vote on this poll to see what the majority view is. Thanks.
***Note: Please don't debate views or argue with others on this thread. There are plenty of threads for that. If you want to post your view, that is great. I know this is a touchy subject for many, I just know it can get heated. I mainly want a poll to just see how views are split.
If angels can't have sex to produce offspring why did the men of Sodom try to take the angels sent to Lot for sexual purposes? Some suggest that they were not really angels? They did eat a meal with Abraham before visiting Lot. It sounds like they are physical beings, not some spirit appearing.
The answer is simple. The four kings invaded and killed off all the rephaim in the land not long before when Lot was captured. The men of Sodom wanted those angels to produce more rephaim for them....
Since this topic has come up often in various threads, it seemed to deserve it's own.
For all of you who believe the Biblical "antichrist", the Biblical "man of Sin" and the Biblical "Beast" are one and the same individual, please provide as concise a scriptural analysis as you can to demonstrate this connection.
For those who hold that they are synonymous, I suggest that the best way to prove your case is to find parallel passages that speak of each character performing the same function...
Do some people have an intuitive or psychic ability? If so, is it in any way wrong if they say things about what the sense? I have a dear friend who admits that she is intuitive, that she can sense things.
A number of years ago I contracted a virus that affected my heart. I had gone to the emergency room after feeling chest pains and they sent me home. A day or two later I had lunch with my friend who, upon meeting me, clutched her heart and told me that I had to get to a hospital...
What is the point, please try and refrain from using one liners like, Gods ways aren't our ways( because that doesn't answer the question)
I say this because , in heaven there will only be believers anyway and it'll be as if they never existed once they're in hell, so again what was the point? What's the point of making someone just to throw them away?
The temporary happiness they do have will be overshadowed by never ending torment ....I don't understand how this is "loving" it would be...
Romans 9:22 (ESV)
22 What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,
Or is this a misunderstanding? ..I see so many scriptures that contradict free will, like God hardening pharaohs heart, God having mercy on whomever he wills...
Is this a mistake, a misunderstanding? I don't want to believe God uses people as pawns
Is cremation Biblical ?
How would God resurrect us if nothing is left of our body.
May Jesus bless you all HalleluYAH
