Re: Questions about a former apologist turned atheist...

Apologetics and research is good but when people rely on explanations instead of God's promises we have... The intellectualisation of Christianity God is replaced by our intelect. Abraham went forward " not knowing whither he went." The early church didn't go to Theology college, they just knew the ...

Re: Peter has the keys?

I had a look into British Israelism a while back . There are a few things which negate it, Did you find anything that affirms it? 1- Hebrew comes from a completely different language family (Afro-Asiatic) to that of the Celts and the Germans (Indo-European). Read this and/or this. (I'm not saying I...

Re: Jesus's sacrifice not really much of a sacrifice?

That's not gonna convince a non believer. You can look at it and say its not much of a bill he had to pay. What did Jesus lose in this sacrifice? If I was immortal and jumped off a bridge to save a falling child is it really sacrifice knowing the consequences of that action? Sure he sacrificed his ...

Re: Jesus's sacrifice not really much of a sacrifice?

The wages of sin is death, spiritual death, separation from God.
Jesus paid that bill for all so that whoever believes in Him should get free from sin and be united with God forever.

He gave everything but until you receive it by receiving His Spirit you cannot appreciate it properly.

Re: John 16:7, why does Jesus have to leave in order for the

To fulfil Old Testament pattern: Jesus had to return to the Father, present himself / his blood in the Holy of Holies for the "Shekinah" glory to descend - for the Holy Spirit to be given. Receiving the Spirit like they did at Pentecost is in fact receiving Jesus in the true sense: "Even the Spirit ...

Re: What makes a person "Christian"?

Several places… Ecclesiastes 3:11, 14 note context is summed up by verse 14 Romans 5:12 also tells us that through sin — death entered the world of humanity… Genesis 2:17 - ask how could this be a penalty if dying of old age was possible before the fall? Note the mystery spoken in 2 Samuel 14:14 co...

When was the last time you suffered persecution fr yr faith?

What happened?

(Note: sometimes religious people do unwise things such as preaching to people that don't want to hear and then claim that they are persecuted for the gospel, in fact they suffer for their faults.)
