How does one know for sure that one is not transgressing the important Commandment against adultery? There must be penetration of female genitalia with male genitalia for there to be adultery (and of course at least one of the parties must be married to someone else), is that not so?
It seems that is pretty much the criterion whenever the laws of a state have anything to do with the matter.
But what are we to make of Matthew 5:28? (Jesus said): "whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after...
Egyptian Mythology tells a lot of the most important stories of the Bible in incredible accuracy, but PREDATES the Bible by very many years.
If this is true than that makes the Bible a copy and the Christian religion completely crumbles..
I need answers, how can we combat this?
I've heard various theories regarding the Christian soul after we pass. There are some that use scripture to say that after we die, our souls go to heaven. There are others that say, according the scriptures, that this is NOT true. That after we die we "know nothing". Our souls go back to God and we know nothing because we do not have a body. And then when Jesus comes back to earth and the dead are raised, we will be "awakened" and then Judged and then put into a new body (assuming that one...
Paul was not a witness in Jesus' earthly ministry. He never heard the elaboration of the parables by Jesus. Therefore, all his epistles should be tested to determine whether they complement the preaching of Jesus or not. Furthermore, any important theological concept cannot be based on Paul's epistles alone. Gospel is the filter one has to apply to his letters.
I'm sorry I have never really understood why
"Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Why Theotokos and not Christokos yet She only Carried Jesus and not God the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit? Even if Jesus is God she was only given the honor to Carry God the Son.
While reading the history of an unpleasant cult known as the Twelve Tribes movement (that originated with the Jesus People); I was shocked to read that the event that pushed them over the edge and alienated them from the PCUSA parish they had been attending was that church cancelling its service for the Superbowl.
This was in the 1970s; I have read however of similiar cancellations occurring in megachurches that have Sunday afternoon and evening services.
So here is a question: has your...
I have so often heard uttered at funerals, 'He or She is in heaven now'.
Is that really what happens when we die?
For I have also heard those that KNEW that the person that died was totally 'anti Christ', "He or she is in heaven with God now". So regardless of one's beliefs about what happens to us when we die, certainly this doesn't pertain to those who will be judged according to 'death'. Certainly 'they' won't be in heaven with God.
But what does the Bible offer concerning 'death' of...
