Re: No one is righteous?

Thank you for the comments. We may never know what Paul had in his mind when he said: Romans 3:10: as it written , There is no one righteous, not even one. Most scholars think Paul referenced Psalm 14: "There is no one who does good, not even one." But Psalm 14 doesn't say there is no one righteous,...

No one is righteous?

Romans 3:10: There is no one righteous, not even one.

Luke 1:6: And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

Is this a contradiction?

Thanks.

Re: Romans 3:4

I don’t understand how your friend came to the conclusion that a man may overrule God’s judgement. Romans 3 contains verses from various prophets that are put together to show that man is estranged from God and evil from birth. Verse 31 is a good answer to those who say that a Christ is free to com...

Romans 3:4

3.So what advantage does the Jew have? Or what is the benefit of circumcision? 2 Considerable in every way. First, they were entrusted with the spoken words of God. 3 What then? If some did not believe, will their unbelief cancel God’s faithfulness? 4 Absolutely not! God must be true, even if everyo...

Re: Paul vs Peter, Apostle to the Gentiles

Christian2: Peter was sent to a Gentile named Cornelius. Acts 10. However before Acts 10, in Acts 9 Jesus sent Paul to the Gentiles. Why do you think Jesus didn't send Paul to Cornelius instead of Peter? Or why didn't Jesus make Peter the Apostle to the Gentiles? Thanks. Because He wanted to send P...

Paul vs Peter, Apostle to the Gentiles

Peter was sent to a Gentile named Cornelius. Acts 10.

However before Acts 10, in Acts 9 Jesus sent Paul to the Gentiles.

Why do you think Jesus didn't send Paul to Cornelius instead of Peter?

Or why didn't Jesus make Peter the Apostle to the Gentiles?

Thanks.

Who sends the Counselor/Comforter/Advocate?

John 14: 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. John 16: 7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you . Is this a...

The Kingdom of God and the death of Jesus

Jesus spoke often about the Kingdom of God.

Does Jesus' death and resurrection have anything to do with one's entrance into the Kingdom of God?

Thanks.

Re: Who raised Jesus from the dead?

Does this make sense? Did Jesus raise Himself from the grave or did God do it? by Brad Huston Before this question can be addressed directly, we must first agree upon what we mean when we say “God,” and we must agree upon the nature of Jesus. Jesus is, by His very nature, God (Phil. 2:6). “God” is ...

What are you having an issue with, that you feel needs to be reconciled?
Jesus said He would raise himself. Other texts say that God raised Him, or the Holy Spirit raised Him.
