I'm constantly surprised to see posters on here who are identified as some form of Christian and yet deny basic biblical doctrines and deny the truth of the Scriptures.
If you identify as a Christian and you know that you're "to the left" - you deny Biblical inerrancy, you deny classic orthodox doctrines, etc... - what do you mean when you say: "I'm a Christian"? Why do you identify as a Christian if you don't believe that the Bible is the word of God?
Genesis 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 And the earth was (became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Hi. I am a Genesis 1 literal'ist - however I do not believe in Noah's flood in the later chapters of the bible. I believe that there was a world before Genesis and the Bible - nothing much is known about that world, but the fossils remain as evidence, of a deluge or series of tsunamis - covering flora and fauna in sediment (same as the YECs teach)....
The doctrine of Universalism is from the devil. This is true of "Christian Universalism" and certainly of more general Universalism.
Universalism is the idea that God will ultimately save everyone, that none will be lost, and that all will ultimately repent and spend eternity with God in heaven. If you think that Universalism is misdefined here then we can discuss this, but for all intents and purposes I think this is a pretty good summary definition.
This doctrine is Satanic because it implies that repentance in this life is not necessary. It is effectively antinomian - claiming that God's Law is unimportant and that it does not matter how we live. But more than this, it strengthens the hands of sinners to continue in their sin. God...
'When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money ' Acts 8: 18
Years ago I heard a radio pastor state that Acts 8:18 should be interpreted that an actual Apostle had to lay on hands to give over the Spirit, and nowhere is it written that the Spirit was transferable. In other words, a recipient of the Spirit received from an Apostle laying on of hands couldn't then transfer the Spirit that to a third party. This pastor stated the apostles (by the indwelt Spirit) were able to perform miracles, speak in different languages etc., and that today there is no actual Spirit indwelling or possessing the believer.
Same pastor also had what seems like an...
The following paper by Brother David H J Gay reveals the incomplete nature of the Protestant Reformation.
The confusion between the Sinai Covenant (Exodus 34:28) and the New Covenant of Christ is still with us today.
The battle began in Acts chapter 15, when the Judaisers attempted to merge the Old Covenant with the New Covenant.
We are not come to the mountain that burns with fire, but instead to the New Covenant of Mount Sion.
We have a better mediator than Moses, through the Blood of Christ. (See Hebrews 12:18-24, Hebrews 8:6-13)
We are under a higher law (The Law of Christ in 1 John 3:22-24), not for salvation, but for our conduct.
Nobody alive today has ever broken the 4th commandment, which was the "sign" of the now...
We need people (preachers, teachers) to stop teaching what they were taught and start teaching what the Bible actually says....
ie - some believe Mt Sinai is in northern Israel, yet the Bible tells us just to Moses getting the Commandments outside of the Sinai desert at Rephiudim (Exodus19)...
This is just one example.... Doesn't sound like a big deal but one little change here and there leads to Jesus died for all the world's sins and all people will be drawn to Him and enter Heaven
Enough teaching of what you want think you know and get back into the Word... The Word has Truth and Life not men's words
