Along with my thread on hell this topic came up. Do Christians believe in the OT anymore? If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever than He also has wrath or is there a different God in the NT?
Of course I think that God has wrath tempered by His Love
We have seen many Christians (be it Pastors, layman or followers) fall due to Sex, Money and Power. In this thread, I would like to learn different views (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and etc) on adultery.
We know Jesus has forgiven the sin of the lady who has 5 husbands but yet when Christians divorce and enter remarriage, not in accordance to the two teachings by Jesus and Paul, is deemed adulterous.
Many Christians say adultery is eternal sin and is condemned eternally. Do you...
Allow me to explain my question... Biologically speaking, there is no real reason for us to age and die the way that we do. Why is it that every human being is aging at about the same rate, and dying naturally in the ballpark of 100-120 years?
Genesis 6:3 has God shortening our lifespans to 120 years... Isn't it interesting that nobody can live much longer than this? I read on Google that a woman supposedly lived for 122 years, but that's still right in the ballpark. Can...
Woke up, turned on the news, and saw this
what I find almost as bad as the incident are the proclamations and speculations of the 24-hr news cycle. No one knows nothing yet are on TV proclaiming opinions as if they were absolute facts.
I imagine as time progresses we will learn more... It would be nice if there were responsible journalism but I fear as a nation we've forgotten what that is.
Jesus fulfilled the letter of Law that put an end to all external rituals and began spiritual understanding and keeping of the spirit of the Law. He shared the preparatory day of the Passover with His apostles to end that ritual also by becoming sacrificial Lamb next day.
John 6 elaborates on the spiritual understanding of the communion. Paul with Pharisaic mindset introduced a ritual in the notorious Corinthian church with his typical strategy in early part of his ministry as he was...
So I have seen lately that Hell is getting redefined to not really be a place of torment but just the fact that since God is everywhere than it will be awful for non Christians and to them that will be Hell. I was surprised to learn that the idea of Hell that many Christians know has not always existed. I was taught that Hell was a real place so is it real or just a state of mind?
I open wih 4 theses designed to stimulate a discussion. If no one responds, then I'll be forced to give lectures, and I don't want that. I intend to pursue these topics sequentially, but I welcome digressions that serve the flow of discussion.
(1) The Old Testament (OT) repeatedly denies the God is a "male" both explicitly and implicitly.
(2) One way to look at any god's is the role they play as ultimate symbols of power. If the ultimate symbols of power are exclusively male, then...
To claim, that the Bible contains the words of God when interacting with people of other religions, will not help. They also quote their scriptures claiming the origin from their gods.
It is by the fruit of the Spirit that we show our superiority in spirituality, not in pages of books. It is by serving, sharing and suffering with humility that puts us apart from other religions.
Too many women these days are living in rebellion. They don't want to submit to their husband. They want to be disobedient to God's Word. They don't respect their husbands or his authority in the home. These women will go to the lake of fire unless they repent. They are of a reprobate mind. There is no once saved always saved, which I feel most of these so-called Christian women subscribe to. It makes them comfortable in their sin. Not following God's will for their lives is sin....
