God can still reject or condemn the Self-righteous Christians who are not righteous. Matthew 7:21-23Matthew 7:21-23
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Basically, the above Scripture says that God can unilaterally reject (or condemn) the Self-righteous Christians who have insisted that they are 'righteous', but they are not righteous at all in the sight of God.
Thus, God can unilaterally condemn those Christians to hell, and He can do it unilaterally since he is Sovereign over Salvation,...
According to God's WORD, it is only those that are faithful to the end that will be saved. What does this mean?
MATTHEW 24:13 , And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. , But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.
MARK 13:13 , And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.
HEBREWS 3:13-14 , But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. , For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end
HEBREWS 3:6 , But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast...
Freewill is arguably the most well taught doctrine in the entire Bible
The Bible has a number of broad, sweeping teachings that support the traditional definition of freewill. Let’s consider a few of these examples.
1. God calls on people to obey, choose, and believe in him (Jn. 15:10; Josh. 24:15; Jn. 3:18). These calls would be nonsense, if we are not free moral agents.
2. The very fact that we can sin implies freedom of the will, unless we are claiming that God is the agent of sin.
3. God judges us (1 Cor. 3:10-15; Rev. 20:11-15). Humans are rewarded and punished according to their actions. Judgment only makes sense, if we are free to choose and culpable for our choices.
4. God tests his people, which implies our ability to pass...
People often talk about the US getting a special blessing from God and this is because of their Christian heritage, past and present. Yet on a global scale, although the US is ranked in the top it doesn't hit the number one spot. Japan, on the other hand, is currently outranking the US but it actually is considered an unreached nation with something like 2% of the population being Christian. Japan has very little Christian heritage and often has played the bad guys in global affairs. So why does Japan deserve to be blessed over the US or is this country based merit system just silliness we tell each other to feel better?
Hello I am new to this website and created this account today. Sorry if I posted this on the wrong thread, but I just have to get this off of my chest I can't find it anywhere on the internet. Basically I am a American muslim, well former muslim. I tried my best to be the most educated and dedicated muslim. I did all the prayers on time, fasted two times each month, recited Quran daily, and very well educated in Islam and Islamic history. Despite all this there were unanswered questions and I never really felt a connection. I always felt interested in Christianity, despite how much I would try to convince myself it is a false religion. I would read christian novels, research christian history, and I would always look and check out the...
Jesus has no DNA from Mary, because Mary is a surrogated mother only.
Then there will be no need of Immaculate Conception: the conception of the Virgin Mary free from original sin by virtue of the merits of her son Jesus.
Gestational surrogacy was first achieved in April 1986. It takes place when an embryo created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology is implanted in a surrogate, sometimes called a gestational carrier.
Gestational surrogacy may take a number of forms, but in each form the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate.
Holy Spirit created the embryo of Jesus inside Mary.
Zechariah 14:1 Behold, a day of the LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided in your presence.
Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all the nations for battle against Jerusalem, and the city will be captured, the houses looted, and the women ravished. Half of the city will go into captivity, but the rest of the people will not be removed from the city.
Zechariah 14:3 Then the LORD will go out to fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle.
Zechariah 14:4 On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half the mountain moving to the north and half to the south.
Zechariah 14:5 You will flee by My...
Can a modern person, or nation, reject God's Son and still be in a right relationship with God, based on the scripture found below?
1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
2Jn 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
2Jn 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He...
Alabama court recognizes aborted baby as legal person, lets wrongful death suit proceed
MADISON COUNTY, Alabama, March 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Personhood Alabama and a father whose baby was aborted against his will won a legal victory Tuesday with a probate judge formally recognizing Ryan Magers’ child as a legal person, allowing his case against the abortion center responsible to proceed.
Last month, Magers filed a suit against the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives (AWC) abortion facility, seeking damages for the 2017 abortion of his and his girlfriend’s six-week-old child, dubbed Baby Roe. The suit is targeting AWC, three unnamed workers associated with it, and the pharmaceutical company responsible for the...
