Fortigurn, Jude 4 "For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ." Fortigurn, can you call Jesus Christ your only Master and Lord?...

I went to Barnes and Noble and looked over book. Here is my opinion. It is not the book of Mormon, as it does not promote a new religion and new religious system founded after the book of Revelations states. It is supra-revelation and thus its context needs to be harmonizing with the Bible. I cannot...

I wrote Prior: Genesis 9:4-5 speaks about blood and so does Hebrews chapter 9. I ask, who's blood can truly atone? Fortigurn you then answered: Blood does not atone My next relpy was: How so? Your answer: Redemption is provided by forgiveness. Blood doesn't forgive, people forgive. Hebrews 10: 11 An...

My prior response: The answer is simple - I am using the full Hebrew definition of the word for atonement. Context and grammar clarifies meaning when used in the bible. You should know this. For example, a King can send a gift to an invader to placate the enemy king and thus atone - prevent the enem...

Demons are angels. Evil angels, but angels nonetheless. Depending on context and continuity of scripture - the word angel can refer to messengers from God either spiritual or human. The word angel is used in a variety of constructs in the bible and the context of scripture refines the meaning. The ...

Also read the Forum Thread - This may help too. http://discussions.godandscience.org/viewtopic.php?t=767&start=30 As for book, I do not know about it, so I cannot comment on it. Maybe someone on the forum has more knowledge on it. I'll go to Barnes and Noble and see if it is there and look it over i...

Who is the Holy Spirit?

According to Christadelphians, the Holy Spirit is only God's Power and not God — is this correct?

This belief of yours is based on Luke 1:35 and John 17:3, etc. Correct?

Fortigun you satated I have no idea how this analogy is relevant to what I believe. I certainly do not believe that things which I haven't seen do not exist. So you agree with the philosopher's razor? If you can't see me, how do you know I exist? Because I typed this? Isaiah 55:8-11 states 8 For my ...

I suggest looking at Jeremaih 1:5 and doing your own word studies on each word and test what I write with scripture. Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” (KJV) He...

A response I believe one needs to look at is if God hardened Pharaoh's heart directly, then how did God do it? Is this something really logically possible? Are our hearts literally some sort of substance that can be taken and hardened? Now God may have did something like possess Pharaoh to control ...
