CNN reports that there is a movement to get both Jews and non-Jews to visit their local synagogue this weekend to show solidarity against hate. What do you think? Should Christians feel free to visit their local synagogue or would it be wrong to do such?
Jesus Declares His Virginity On The Cross
When Jesus was On the cross he spoke directly to his mother Mary saying, "Woman, here is your son."
What Jesus is declaring is his celibacy and virginity. As it states in Genesis 2:24 a man shall leave his father and mother and become one flesh.
Jesus, in saying to his mother "woman, here is your son", is reaffirming the fact that his relationship with his mother and father (hint: God the Father in heaven) was still intact as a virgin. Jesus hadn't become one flesh with any woman and therefore he hadn't left his mother or his Father God in heaven.
Then the very last words of Jesus Christ spoken on the cross were, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit."
Notice that if Jesus were one...
Do you think Christians sin?
If so, what common unconfessed sins do you think Jesus forgives?
For example: Do you think lying, or cursing, or porn (lusting), hating, coveting are automatically covered by the blood of Jesus by having a belief alone on Him?
Okay so Paul says in Romans 6:1 that we should not continue to sin while we are being saved. General Church teaching is that we should repent of our sins and no longer sin. But wait! Doesn't everyone still sin while we are in the flesh? And isn't biblical repentance a change of mind about Jesus? Or am I missing something here? Just what is not living in sin exactly? Since everyone sins before and after their rebirth.
Based on the reasons that, people argue, philosophically and logically speaking, God exists, I have yet to find a compelling philosophical argument as to why God is pure good and not evil.
Couldn't it be possible that He created us for sadistic enjoyment, to watch people burn for eternity, and lie about the Love He has towards us? Why should we believe that He is all Love and not pure evil?
Those who go to church on Saturday, or advocate Sabbath observance, often say that God ordained the Sabbath in the Ten Commandments. It is assumed that Christians are obligated to obey the Ten Commandments, although no verse in the New Testament that exactly says so. The Ten Commandments were specifically given to the Jews, to Israel.
Most Christian advocates of Sabbath observance are influenced by Ellen White, the founder of the Seventh Day Adventists. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance that she put on the Sabbath. She doesn't say that the Sabbath command, or the Sabbath institution, as she sometimes calls it, originated at Sinai. Ellen White says that God gave the command to observe the Sabbath to Adam and Eve in the Garden...
Good Day, All
Dr. Schreiner does a great job here, be sure to read Michael Kruger article as well it is linked in Dr. Schreiner's work.
The Old Covenant Is Over. The Old Testament Is Authoritative.
It seems everyone who commited a sin usually got a punishment harsh and that fit the crime. However has anyone ever commited a sin in the Bible and God barely punished them... if not at all?
What do YOU expect Jesus will do when He returns? Catch us all up and kill everyone else? That is the same mindset that the Jews had when He came first time.
Well He will catch up the church.
If you do not believe in the 1,000 years you must believe He will destroy everyone else.
The purpose of the 1,000 years is to restore all things and that the rest of mankind can come in.
Aren't you glad about that?
Yes, yes the peoples will flock to Jerusalem to the house of the God of Jacob to learn His ways. Nations will beat their swords into ploughshares and study war no more. There will be Righteousness and justice, peace and prosperity. The glory of the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters covers the sea.
I am still a baby in Christ I would consider, its been 3 months since I came to Christ.
The Trinity makes sense to me. But looking more into what others are teaching is what causes confusion and then add fear to the fire when they claim if you don't believe in their certain theological position regarding Father, Son, Holy Spirit to expect hell.
How crucial is this doctrine really? I believe its important, but to the point, even your salvation depends on it? No.
I don't know who is right on this matter. The Trinity has been around for centuries.
What is ok to misunderstand and what is not ok to misunderstand?
Here is another one that got into my confusion, some claim if you say Jesus is Lord you are not saved, Only when you must...
