I'll use Hitler since he is, for the most part, universally reviled.
And for this discussion, there will be an assumption that hell is where the unrepentant sinner ends up. This will NOT be as discussion on hell itself.
So for the sake of this discussion, are you happy that Hilter (or any reviled person in history) ended up in hell? If so, why? If not, why?
I have a big question that's been bothering me the last couple of days. Are people who don't have doctrine 100% (or even 30% correct) saved? I mean, if that were the case Catholics would not be saved because they believe in a works based salvation. Not to mention all of the other crazy stuff that they believe and do that I'm not going to get into in this topic. Calvinists and Mormons would not be saved either because of their wrong beliefs. Not to mention the Seventh Day Adventists. But, this cannot be the case as we are not saved by getting doctrine 100% correct we are saved by faith in Christ. Also Jesus says in John 6:37-6:40
"All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For...
If you look up fear in the thesaurus you will find an amazing number of words that are synonyms. This suggests that this emotion is not only universal, but very complex and difficult to pin down.
At one level the emotion of fear is similar in purpose to pain, it is there in us to keep us alive. But we all know that there are huge differences in the nature and level of fear we experience - from being 'subconsciously anxious' to 'terrified.'
This morning I read this verse and it made me pause.
Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”
The usual explanation I have been told, of the phrase "fear God" is that it means we should...
This seems like such a simple question and I think we would all say yes.
BUT, a big but. The Church is not each person's church. It is easy to say the Holy Spirit works in the church each has chosen or been born into, but what about the church you disagree with?
The Church is the collection of all Christians. It is an invisible church made up of many different denominations. Different churches have different doctrines. Each claim the Holy Spirit has inspired them to the truth. Scripture tells us that the Holy Spirit is of truth. How can we all be inspired by the Holy Spirit and still disagree?
To those that argue their church has special access to the Holy Spirit, read Jesus' words.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three...
I have just finished reading the book “People vs Muhammad” by JK Sheindlin. I would like to know others people comments on this book.
All I can say is man I am glad I am a follower of Jesus and the textual criticism done on the Bible over the centuries is a walk in the park in comparison to the junk written in the Hadith's (Teaching and says of Muhammad).
For those of you who have not read it here is a preview of what you will find. Yes my Muslim friends it is embracing and I am sure you will be offended but this is what is in the Hadiths of your faith. The only issue here is Sheindln has taken the time to read them and publish what Muslims believe.
Pro-choice is a deceptive term used by abortion supporters to reframe the killing of unborn babies as an individual right.
People who identify as pro-choice typically vote for left-leaning political parties that want to implement high taxes on people who make good money. To force a successful person to hand over 50% or 60% of his salary to the government is very anti-choice. People should have the right to choose what they do with their own money without the government confiscating most of it.
Why do pro-choice believers say that women have a right to choose an abortion, but think that rich people should not have the right to choose what to do with most of their money? If the pro-choice crowd were honest, their views on choice would...
Ok so I played the Trading Card Game for two years now and finally quit because the game was too unbalanced and only the most expensive cards win games (I kid you knot when I say that people pay a hundred dollars or more for one card). So it's been a year since and now my younger brother and even younger little sister watch the show. They are really addicted to the show and talk about it all the time, which begs the question if Yugioh is an appropriate show to watch? especially since there's many occult themes and summonings, sacrificing, etc.
I was at a conference in august this year an encountered this little thingie.
I have never understood the theological foundation for it.
If that exists for this then pls help me and explain.
Also when people say that it's the manifest lion of God, is this something other then just emotion and bad theology?
You may have heard that women should submit.
That is not in all things. That has only to do with
how a man should prioritize God first, and then
his wife next. She must submit, not to her
husband's will, but to his decision
to put God first over her. When he does this
she should honor it. If he fails to put God
first, she is not obligated to that choice of his.
For example, if he is an abuser, she does not
need to honor that decision of his.
And above all else, treat others well as you
would wish to be treated.
What is a good Godly woman? Do you have a
problem with women teaching?
Take this woman's teachings, found in scripture:
Proverbs 31 NASB
If "a woman's place is in the home", then these
passages will clarify that role for...
Did anybody see the documentary "The Sign" on DirecTV?
According to it, and several people on the documentary, the Tribulation will kick off, and a fulfillment of Revelation 12 will happen on Sept. 23, 2017.
This stellar alignment:
Virgo, with the moon at her feet, the sun shining on her, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Saturn, along with the other constellation Leo will form the 12 crowns above her head.
Jupiter moving into the area od her womb is "travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."
And this star, known as the "Red Dragon":
Is due to pass very close to this alignment, and very close to earth. And when it comes close to earth, asteroids from this star will strike the planet.
All this, coincidently happens when the Jewish...
