Problems/Questions with faith alone theology and it's accompanied theory of double imputation are presented below.
On Faith Alone
Question - If a man is justified by faith alone and the scriptures say man is justified by faith (Rom 3:28, 5:1, Gal 2:16), why then add in the word "alone", when the word "alone" does not exist within any scripture text in the context of justification by faith?
Question- if man is justified by faith alone, why doesn't any scripture text actually say that?...
[I hope I am posting this in the correct section....it may need to be moved to General Theology?]
Which Bible commentaries do you use?
Can you recommend a good Bible commentary? (Preferably a one-volume Bible commentary).
If you prefer, you can also recommend a good study Bible
Theologically, I am from a Reformed and/or conservative Presbyterian theological background
What does it mean to be a church "member?" I'm not convinced at all by this concept, to be honest and an suspicious it's a load of convoluted, man made nonsense.
If you are faithfully and regularly attending a local church, faithfully supporting it financially and involved in it, aren't you automatically a "member?".
The reason I ask is because the last church I attended for 10 yrs, I was faithful all that time and involved in the music team, but was told in the end that I was "not a...
Hello, this has been bugging me for months and years, so im reaching out here. I learned about the ontological trinity and economic trinity, it seems fine to me. From what i understand Jesus chose not to grasp equality with the Father and humbled himself to become a man. But i still believe he was equal to the Father despite choosing to humble himself and obey the Father. I see Christians posting videos on youtube, and even my friends saying that the trinity doctrine is unbiblical and false....
I was just reading through a different thread talking about the mass exodus of millennials from the church, and I didn't want to take the topic off subject, so here is a brand new question:
Why should they stay? and not just millennials but anyone, what are they gaining from the church?
I probably spend more time at church than I do at my own house, so I surely have a grasp on the benefits of walking with Christ, but by and large I do not believe many people especially younger people...
"... Because 24 of every 25 Millennials lack a biblical worldview today"
Very interesting read.
Barna detects dangerous breach in the wall
“The light esteem in which the law of God is held, even by religious leaders, has been productive of great evil. The teaching, which has become so wide-spread that the divine statutes are no longer binding upon men, is the same as idolatry in its effect upon the morals of the people. Those who seek to lessen the claims of God’s holy law are striking...
NB: not a thread about suicide
I mean as Christians, we are supposed to ponder on the shortness of our earthly life versus eternal life.
I tend to be obsessive about it though. Wondering about the last hour of my death. How much faith I will have. How much courage. How close I will feel to God.
Some will see it as negative I suppose. But I think it is only natural to be concerned about it.
I think about it every day, to be honest. Oh dear!
14 years ago I started my spiritual search. I read books on buddhism and eastern philosophies and never got nothing out of it. Last year some verses of the Bible caught my attention and I read the book. And even study it and tried to believe. None of the approaches, western or eastern has satisfied this thirst in me for truth.
Now, dissatisfied with it all, and probably knowing I might not get the answer here, I'll ask how am I to quit this search for the unatainable, the transcendence for...
So I married my wife when she told me that she was a Christian. All things about her were lovely but when it was revealed that she was a Christian I was sold. Only to find out a month in the marriage that she might be the very people I despise...

How do you love a woman who doesn't even LOVE GOD the way you do. Who is not on your level yet bites your hand off when you try to highlight the errors that are keeping her from GOD. Wants to pounce on me with the don't...
