Conversation from another thread:
Who believes we are in the latter days and that the Rapture will happen in our lifetime?
TheSinningServant said: ↑ I apologize if this question has already been asked.
I am wondering if anyone believes that we are in last days based on prophecies and why. If you do not think so, I would also like to know why you think this.
Thanks in advance!Lots of answers already so I will just add my training in this and what I teach based on Scripture.
I am convinced we are in the last days because of one major event--May 14, 1948!
That was when Israel was rebirthed as a nation and it was prophesied it would happen in the end times!
June of 1967 added more evidence to this when Israel regained control of their...
Hi my brothers and sisters. Can a believer become an unbeliever? If so how? I believed we can all fall away from believing and following God's Word because this is what the scriptures teach...
Can you know God and fall away?
1 JOHN 2:18-19
, Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
, They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
What did they go out from? Yep you guessed it. They went out from the truth. The CONTEXT is that there is many...
A federal judge who struck down Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban last year is hearing arguments about a new law that puts the ban even earlier. The law would prohibit most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, at about six weeks, when many women may not know they’re pregnant. (Mississippi 6-week abortion ban heads to federal court)
There's no question that the new antiabortion laws are heading to Federal Court but aside from a reversal of Supreme Court precedence, they are likely to be found unconstitutional. So is anyone following this as a Constitutional Law issue?
The deliberate escalation by the states has led to talk that a head-on challenge to Roe could be before the justices in their next term, which opens in...
Hello everyone, I suspect that this question may have been asked before, but I was unsure. But just in case, I'll ask it again just to make sure.
Anyways, I was just wondering what branch of Christianity follows the Bible the closest. I wanted to also join whichever branch that follows the Bible the closest because I don't know what type of Christian I am. I was a Baptist then I was an Eastern Orthodox then I was a Protestant - I just don't know what to follow. I don't want to follow something that Jesus said not to do or something not mentioned in the Bible. I just simply want to follow a branch of Christianity that follows the Bible the closest with everything the Bible mentions; scripture and all. I looked into the Seventh-day...
Been christian for maybe almost a year or over, my memories fuzzy. It was really great for starters but overtime I've just spiralled into an unstable mess. The more I tried to get closer to God the further I got. Other people get saved and sure they struggle, but they always overcome, and their filled with joy and assurance, and many of them have more reason to be sad than me. I grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, so I know I'm a spoilt brat saying this, but Seeing people like that feels like a knife on my heart these days. I'm happy others are being blessed, but I sometimes don't want to even hear other people testify, every time they talk about how good God is to them I just remember how pathetic I am and feel alienated. I've...
There are some simple terms that get thrown around in reference to accepting Jesus.
Justification in theology always means (Made right before God)
Sanctification is a little more complicated because this gets redefined by many conflicting theologies.
- Some theologies state that after initial justification, the human response to “Sanctification” is a Salvational factor
- Some theologies state this is a work of the Holy Spirit that occurs naturally as a result of hearing and believing the gospel.
- Some theologies purport that a true Christian doesn’t sin and are Sanctified upon Justification
- Some theologies call this perseverance and again link it to human response...
I have over the years here in the last few days hear the after morning pill called the abortion pill. The morning after pill is not the abortion pill, it is contraception...prevents pregnancy. Before you talk take the time to investigate. So here is the difference between the two
So I am imagining basically, that in Heaven: anything is possible. But if you are going to evolve, are you really going to pursue anything different to what you already had? I mean is the older the Evolution, not the better?
And for another thing, we are supposed to be ready for the Master: what is he going to find, if all you have done is evolve? Is that not beating fellow servants, over words that define something other than Creation? And is it not a talent unused, if nothing can improve it?
I fully understand that men have to be given over to delusion, if they will not praise God, but how are we to live with these self-same men, if we have no part with that delusion? The pharisee that prays "I thank you that I am not...
