We can see clearly from the Scriptures that the Rapture will occur simultaneously at
the Resurrection when YashiYa-h our Messiah shall raise the dead bodies, His dead bodies
of all of His children who have fallen asleep in Him from the beginning of this world unto
the last day of "this" current world. And the very few that shall be blessed by God to be
alive, and still remain on that last day. Where by they shall also be instantly changed,and translated into the visible presence of...
Note, I'm not promoting anything, nor am I stating anything here is right or wrong.
I've been thinking on this and I believe there are three possible options.
1) You're born with a preference (most likely)
- e.g. Similar to being born with heterosexuality
2) An environment condition altered your preference (likely)
- e.g. A negative sexual experience alters my preference
- very sad, but I know a few in this category
3) You're not born with a preference (least likely)
- e.g. I "choose" a...
People have different views regarding the atonement. Please give non-Mormons the LDS perspective.
2 Thessalonians 2:15 is the banner flag verse for the Roman Catholic (RCC) and Orthodox churches to support their view on holding to church tradition. Of the occurences of the word "traditions" only 3 are used in reference to God's people. The 10 other occurences of the word "traditions" is used in a negative sense. Also, Jesus followers and Paul were making sacred Scripture that would end with John's vision that he had written down. For if we are to add to the words of the prophecy of...
I think of being nice as being a sin and I don't think what Jesus did was nice but it was right and the Father's will. In tenth grade World History my teacher taught me that "nice" was a bad word to use when I was describing the cotton gin. She gave me the punishment of looking in a thesaurus for a better word to use so I did. She was a good Christian black woman and later on I wrote to her that she was my favorite teacher in a letter a couple years later. About Jesus, he wasn't nice because...
Why are people so persuaded of this? Usually they are so persuaded that they think the early date (Nero) is impossible. Why are people so confident of this?
First, I'm sorry if this is the wrong area, I wasn't sure where to post it, so if this is wrong, I'm kindly asking the mods to put this in the right area.
Recently, there was a discussion on a different Christian forum about sex before marriage. I know, old topic, has been discussed a thousand times. What shocked me, however, was that one of the very strict Christians there (who, admittedly, seems to be a bit of a misogynist, considering the way he writes about women), claimed that it was...
I have... At the authors request... Shared this article in full..
T = TOTAL INABILITY (Called in Calvinism, Total Depravity, but actually taught as the Total Inability of man to choose Truth. The Calvinist plays many such word games. The Word of God teaches that God created man with the ability to reason, choose, and receive Truth.):
Ephesians 2:8: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God."
Romans 10:17: "So then faith cometh by hearing,...
There are many people who question whether or not they will be saved; some even questioning if they are even saved at the moment. Personally, I have no doubt whatsoever that I'm saved. This is because I believe that only God can save, and so one-hundred and ten percent of my faith is completely in God. This is why I have such personal assurance in my own heart, because I am relying completely on faith in God, and I know God cannot fail. Thus, in my mind, I cannot be failed to be saved by...
