1 Jn.2:18 is the only place in the Bible where the term Antichrist is found. But he is referred to by a number of different terms as recorded below, and where to find them:
1. He is the "little horn" in Dan.7:8;
2. He is known as a "stern faced king, in Dan.8:23.
3. He is all three of the "he's" in Dan.9:27.
4. In 2 Thess.2:3, he is referred to as "the man of lawlessness."
5. In 2 Thess.2:8-9, he is referred to as the "lawless one."
6. In Rev.11:7; 17:3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 17,...
I have 2 questions: Do you think that Satan controls all non-Christians? I need advice. What are your thoughts regarding my first question?
Question: "How is Satan god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4)?"
Answer: The phrase “god of this world” (or “god of this age”) indicates that Satan is the major influence on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His influence also encompasses the world’s philosophies, education, and commerce. The thoughts, ideas,...
I've read the New Testament multiple times, as well as most of the books of the Old Testament...I've only read Revelation once.
I recently tried to do so again...and I can never get into it. All the symbolic language. I've tried reading it from several different translations...I just don't get it.
Maybe it's because I don't concern myself with eschatology? My thoughts being, do the best I can while I'm here and the end will work itself out. So I guess I'm a pantribulation panmillenialist...
I am almost 21 and I have never read the Harry Potter series because my parents and especially my father banned it from me because of the witchcraft. I feel like I am the only person and I feel really ashamed and stupid because of it. I know I have to obey my parents no matter what. What is your advice? Thank You.
EDIT: Also in addition to ashamed and stupid I forgot to mention loser, which was in my title.
What's a accurate depiction of how Jesus handled being tortured and crucified?
I don't know if any depiction I've seen is accurate or not... Now this might offend a few people, but I would like to present and alternative... That was a moment of great physical torture, I wonder if he never cried out at all, except for when the Bible says he did, if he bore it or took it, and I'm sorry I don't any other way to put this, but, "took it like a man"...?
That he strained vigorously, bu exerted...
My question is: if belief in various interpretations of scripture were not a factor, does any reason exist to doubt evolution on evidential grounds? I ask this question because many proponents of creation/ID claim that their theories offer a better explanation of the evidence, implying that faith based considerations have (at least for the moment) been suspended in their analyses.
So my question is directed at those who think that on the grounds of the evidence alone, the theory of...
I often see Christian's state: God defines marriage, you cannot alter the definition of marriage.
I'd like to suggest, yes that's true, but only for Christian couples.
I do not believe God defines marriage for secular unions. So why do Christian's try and impose their definition of marriage on those whom are not Christians. Seems odd to me.
There are many different variations
as to what and who is Jesus Christ
among the Christians and the non Christians.
I will tell you the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
So you will know once and for all.
God is Life
God is a Spirit.
God is the Spirit of Life.
God is the Life of the Spirit.
In the beginning was the Spirit, and the Spirit was with Life,
and the Life of the Spirit was God. The Life of the Spirit
was the beginning of the Spirit of Life.
All things were made by God;
and without God...
I'm catholic and usually go to one local Catholic Church. But sometimes I feel the urge to visit a Protestant one . Just for a fresh slant on things. I admire some Protestant zeal and can feel enthused by their sermons. Of course it can be a turn off, if over the top hard sell.
Do you think I'm being spiritually promiscuous? Should I just stick to my own Church?
1. Saved from what?
This first question ought not be too controversial, although it may reveal helpful differences and insights into the depths of the matter.
2. Saved for what?
This question really has two parts:
2a) Saved for what in this lifetime, in this present creation?
2b) Saved for what ultimately, finally, in the New Creation - in the new heavens and the new earth?
