The purpose of this section is to present a dispensational view of Galatians 6:16, the only passage produced by all Covenant Theologians as evidence that the Church is the spiritual Israel, or that Gentile believers become spiritual Jews. The verse does not prove their case. The passage reads:
And as many as shall walk by this rule, peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
The Book of Galatians is concerned with Gentiles who were attempting to attain salvation through the law. The ones deceiving them were Judaizers, who were Jews demanding adherence to the Law of Moses. To them, a Gentile had to convert to Judaism before he qualified for salvation through Christ. In verse 15 Paul states that the important thing for...
"Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven."136 There are no limits to the mercy of God, but anyone who deliberately refuses to accept his mercy by repenting, rejects the forgiveness of his sins and the salvation offered by the Holy Spirit.137 Such hardness of heart can lead to final impenitence and eternal loss.
This, then is the one and only definition for sin, refusing the guidance of The Holy Spirit.
This passage sums up the intended influence of the Holy Spirit:
Jesus declared, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your...
Hello. I've been terrified of being sent to hell for a very long time now.
I don't know why I am. I have a Bible that I take very careful care of. It has no rips or tears or anything. I always put God first before anything and anyone. I know and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I believe in Him dying on the cross for all our sins. I accept that I sin and take full responsibility for it. I have asked for His forgiveness and totally feel He forgave me.
But what are the reasons I would be sent to hell? I have major anxiety about everything. It's truly really bothersome. So your answers will truly help reassure me, thank you. <3
What happens to the babies and young children when the Rapture takes place?
The parents are lost and are left, that we know. However, what about the babies of the lost?
Will they be left to go through the tribulation, and most probably die in the chaos?
Will they be Raptured as well as believers in Christ even though they have not reached the age of accountability?
A short while ago I posted a “formula” I was trying out to make life enjoyable:
1. Trust the Lord.
2. Obey the Lord.
It didn’t work. Now I’ve revised the formula, which I now call a “recipe for life”:
1. Trust the Lord.
2. Obey the Lord. (Obey his commandments.)
3. Enjoy the glory the Lord gives us when we obey him.
4. Walk with the Lord (as Noah did, Genesis 6:9).
5. Enjoy the safety that comes with obeying the Lord.
So often, do I hear "don't judge" and " I'm a believer, but I'm not like one of those judgemental ones" and "Pharisee" and all the noise. Basically, Christians being notorious for being judgemental. But I always felt like the issue is more with "condemning" and not "judging".It's just used so ambiguously, that any stance that's against a person's action can be called out as being "judgemental".
Out of all the scriptures, that's been brought up concerning it, I can never ignore the scripture that says for us to not judge by mere appearances, but to judge righteous judgment (John 7:24).
So I always ask God, what does it mean to judge and how do I judge righteously? Even if I use the scripture, how do I distinguish when I'm trying to be...
After seeing the board and the debates about people's personal endtimes predictions ,i've decided it might be time to make one myself.I'm not hear to argue or debate personal biblical interpretation but simply to state my own end time predictions based on my understanding of biblical prophecy.It will be interesting to see if anyone else shares my veiws.

Is The Bible The Word Of God?
Is The Bible The Bible The Word of God? 2 Tim 3:16. 2 Peter 1:20. 1 Thess. 2700 times it claims it is! About twice per page. But claiming isn't proving. 9 books in the world make the same claim. "By faith" isn't good enough. God has never asked us to believe w/o evidence.
EVIDENCE. written over 1500 years. 40 writers 66 perfectly accurately. Geography. Archeology.
SCIENTIFIC FOREKNOWLEDGE. a. The life of the flesh is in the blood. (Geo Washington’s bleeding to death example). All OT prescriptions are accurate.
All peoples around Israel were killing their patients, but the Jews were not dying in their hospitals like their neighbors. But the Jews were doing something very different than their enemies. Skip...
