Epistle To Syrmians From Saint Ignatius 107 AD. Chapter 8. Let nothing be done without the bishop See that you all follow the bishop, even as Jesus Christ does the Father, and the presbytery as you would the apostles; and reverence the deacons, as being the institution of God. Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as,...
The covenant or proper name of the God of Israel. It denotes the “Unchangeable One,” “the eternal I AM” (Ex. 6:3; Ps. 83:18; Isa. 12:2; 26:4). The original pronunciation of this name has possibly been lost, as the Jews, in reading, never mentioned it but substituted one of the other names of God, usually Adonai. Probably it was pronounced Jahveh, or Yahveh. In the KJV, the Jewish custom has been followed, and the name is generally denoted by Lord or God, printed in small capitals.
Jehovah is the premortal Jesus Christ and came to earth being born of Mary (see Mosiah 3:8; 15:1; 3 Ne. 15:1–5; D&C 110:1–10). Although Ex. 6:3 states that the God of Israel was not known by the name Jehovah before Moses’ time,...
If the Gospel's so easy, ( BELIEVE IN JESUS, AND YOU SHALL BE SAVED), but then why are there so many different teachings? According to Paul in Corinthians 15 the true Gospel is:
1Co 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1Co 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
This should be good. Let everyone come forth and proclaim what...
As we read through threads, we find these 2 words that just seem to be thrown into posts. These are not. 'catch-all words. They each have a narrow meaning. Especially 'abomination' which the ancient Hebrew word has 3 different meanings in severity.
We notice mostly when Homosexual and male cross-dressing is mentioned, that the English translation from the Hebrew 'abomination' is also injected. However, no one wants to appear ignorant on a media board (especially as large as this) but it seems that either so many posters are ignorant of these 3 Hebrew meanings, or, know of them but their worldly pride and animosity to the LGBT community blinds them so much that they just don't care.
The most important (spiritually...
Many times when I discuss Eternal Security, I hear two different messages. One message says a true Christian is defined by loving Jesus and by being more Christ like. Yet, another message within Eternal Security says you can die in the unrepentant sin of lying, or the sin of unforgiveness, etc. and still be saved.
What doth thou sayeth?
According to E P Hovey, there are 4 characteristics of sin.
1) self-sufficiency instead of faith
2) self-will instead of submission
3) self-seeking instead of benevolence
4) self-righteousness instead of humility
Which do you struggle with most?
I think number two for me. I still treat God like an equal instead of submitting to Him.
The Millennium Movie:
For years I have been attempting to understand the picture painted by those promoting the 1,000 year earthly reign of Christ, which they say begins at Christ’s Second Coming.
I wish someone would make a movie version to help us understand the idea, in the same way the “Left Behind” movies have been used to help us with the pretrib rapture doctrine.
I am going to start the script with my understanding of what Premillennialists are telling us will happen.
In my version, the movie starts in year 999 of the 1000 year reign.
The planet is inhabited by us immortals and also mortals who live to a great age, but by this time some of them are dying.
The first scene in the movie begins with the funeral service...
Donald Trump Admits He Didn't Tape Conversations With James Comey
Trump first suggested he had secret recordings in a tweet in May, days after he fired Comey. The FBI director had been leading the bureau’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.
tulc(is shocked to find out President Trump lied shocked!)
No, but, now that you mention that very tame piece of work, it has more detail than what you are teaching here.
Pretribbers, which pretrib "details" have proven true?
Could you please post some examples.
During the many years that I have been studying this, here are a couple pretribber "details" that were proven FALSE...
Between 1981 and 1986, when the European Union (EU) had exactly 10 member states, the pretribbers were saying... The EU has 10 member states ("ten horns"), the president/king of the next country to join will be the "little horn". He will take over 3 of the other member states leaving 8 member states. Etc etc.
But what actually happened was... 2 nations joined at the same time, so the EU went from having 10...
