    Well, since they were the ones charged with spreading it throughout the world it's difficult to imagine that they didn't know what it was.

    Do you expect a literal second coming of the Lord, Jesus Christ?

    I believe in a literal second coming of Jesus Christ, but I don't know what it will look like. If I had to guess, it would look a lot like the difference between the old covenant and the new covenant.

    Paul was entrusted to deliver the gospel to the uncircumcised, i.e., gentiles, while Peter delivered the gospel to the circumcized, the Jews. Note that it is the same gospel. All of the Apostles had both Jews and gentiles in the Churches they established.

    Who are the dogs?

    In that context it means non-believers. It's not in any way an insult as in calling someone a dog. Jesus also used to same expression with the Caananite woman at Matt 15:26-28. The meaning is that children at the table shouldn't throw their bread to their pet animals. But anyways, the Didache...

    It uses agricultural language of the time. Sheep are considered good and goats are considered bad. The good go one way while the bad go another. It says he will gather "all nations". That means everyone, Jews and gentiles alike. All of those who have done what he commanded will be allowed into...

    The gospel is simply the gospel. It's the only one. At Romans 1:1 Paul refers to as the gospel of God. At 1:16 he calls it the gospel of Christ. As to the other see Matthew 25:31-46.

    The 45th President wants to be Hitler

    I'm sure if he wanted to be Hitler he would have done all sorts of Hitler-like things while he was President. But he didn't. Now here we go again, "but he's going to!"

    Soul Sleep

    If I may, it is a by-product of Protestantism. It began as mere speculation but then became a polemic against the Roman view of purgatory. So to say, "if we don't go to purgatory where do we go?" Uhhh...soul sleep!

    So are there two gospels? IS that the "he wasn't talking to me" excuse? And the WORKS I am talking about are feeding the hungry, caring for the sick and poor, and those things Jesus commanded us to do. He even gave us a vision of the day of judgement so we would know why some are condemned and...

    HY AYER BAPTISM CAN NOT SAVE !!

    There were a number of people floating around in the early Church who twisted the words of Paul. There are still people who do. The worst cases are the antinomians who claim that the entirety of the law has been abolished therefore there is no such thing as sin. They go so far as to say that if...

    Do what Jesus said. Mat 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Jas 2:24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Mat 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on the left...

    HY AYER BAPTISM CAN NOT SAVE !!

    Well I'm not sure what you're getting at. And I have heard countless bizarre ideas people base off of 2 Tim 2:15. And they all end up as "I know I am rightly dividing the word of truth because I know I am". How about this. The word of truth was rightly divided a long time ago and there is no...

    The sun was struck dumb and did not set for about a whole day

    The summer solstice. Solstice literally means "sun stands still". All of the ancients referred to the solstice by different names, but they all meant that the sun stood still. The battle was fought on the day the sun stood still.

    Conservative or Liberal literally........

    Someone gave an analogy once to describe conservative and liberal mindsets. Seems a conservative will never approach the edge of a cliff for fear of falling over while a liberal will run headlong over the edge without looking. I am somewhere in the middle. I prefer to approach the edge, look...
