I'm not posting this is the politics forum, because .....well, I guess because--according to what I've been told---I hold to "controversial theology" and I wanted to be able to speak openly. I saw this interview this morning and it's got me thinking. I agree that Jesus' agenda was definitely "political" (depending on how one defines that word)....so I wonder HOW we are to properly draw the lines between church and state and what that actually should mean. I'd love it if you could watch the interview prior to posting in order to understand the question I'm asking:
Trying to wrap my head around this...God is pained by the fact that many will go to hell. Eternal hell. So, does that mean that God will forever feel pain? In a sense, will God suffer emotionally for eternity because He will forever be aware of those in hell, whom He loves, suffering for eternity?
Nearly 4000 years ago, God met with Abraham and made an irrevocable Covenant with him: that his descendants would inherit all that area from the Nile to the Euphrates. Genesis 15:6-20
Later, after the incident at Mt Moriah, Genesis 22:15-18, God promised to make his descendants as numerous as the sands of the sea and they would possess the cities of their enemies.
Immediately, we see the problem with those who say that the Jewish people are all of Israel, because the Jews, who are only 2 of the 12 tribes of the sons of Jacob, have never been really numerous, or have been conquerors. We see this difference again in the blessings given to the tribes by Jacob: Genesis 48 & 49 and Moses: Deuteronomy 33. Note particularly in Genesis...
How does believing Jesus died from my sins sets me free?
Why does a man, Jesus had to die for me?
How does all this saving thing work (besides believing in the gospel)? How does a man can free me from my sins? And why is it that exists original sin? Was it invented? It could be.
What do you say?
If they're all things missing from the Bible then this is just mere speculation could Jesus have kids and a wife and that it could been covered up to protect their fate
But if that was the case it will not be known to the public to prevent the same thing that happened to Jesus to his family because when Jesus was on the earth he the affected people in two ways influence you to give up everything you had to follow him or making you so mad people wanted to crucify him because his teachings so I would like to entertain the possibility of this just something to think about I've been thinking about this for a long time and I'll even hesitant to post it because it being such a controversial idea but did Jesus have a family before he was...
The scriptures show that Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for sin and offer reconciliation between God and man, forgiveness, and eternal life to sinful humanity. How does God indicate in His word this gift of salvation and grace is applied to one's life?
I believe that according to the Bible a person is saved by trusting Jesus Christ as their Savior in faith and believing the gospel message that He has paid for the sins of the world, including their personal sins, risen from the grave in victory over sin and death offering forgiveness and eternal life to all who believe.
According to the Calvinistic theology as expressed in TULIP people are so (Totally depraved) that they have no ability to believe the gospel. God...
Ok, so here's what I have. It's quite the discovery I found after heartfully searching for it, and it's hidden in the primes. This discovery in my opinion will probably have a big impact on the world. Here's my explanation: When you look up the primes, there's a difference between each prime, for example, in the primes 3,5,7,11, the differences are 2,2,and 4. When you go waaay up in the primes, you get four prime numbers in a row, 1741, 1747, 1753, and 1759. The difference in between each of these primes is 6, three 6's, and thhis doesn't repeat again in the sequence of primes. Now, add these four numbers, you get 7000. This is significant because now we have two biblical numbers now, 666 and 7000. Want to make it a third? Add each...
I can't help but think about the fact that the majority of people who have ever lived (and I'm not talking 51% to 49%, the margin is MUCH wider) have gone to or are going to hell. Hell is eternal torment that one cannot escape.
So how is it not better to have never lived at all then to live?
We've all heard the saying "life isn't fair." God even states in the book of Exodus "I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and show compassion to whom I show compassion." Now of course he's an all perfect God but even when I try to think "it all balances out" it appears God shows favoritism.
I've been reading the books of Samuel and 2 Samuel the last few days and King David is a genocidal maniac who literally raids & plunders cities of...
