Re: God on OT vs. God nowadays etc...

I do not think this word predestination refers to being (justified). I think it refers to being glorified. In other words all those that choose the free gift of salvation (justification) that God has call all people to, are predestined to be glorified. Eph 1 4 According as he hath chosen us in him b...

Re: Use of the word/term "witness"?

So would the term "Testimony" be a better word? And by testimony I mean: The communication of our experience in how Christ changed our lives, whether by words or by deed. Our testimony can have an effect on people to where they want to know more. But of course the REASON our testimony has an effect ...

Re: The Real Church of God

I always thought the church consisted of whomever belongs to the body of Christ. (saved people)

Is not Abraham included in this Group?

Christianity did not start with the birth of Jesus. It started with the Promise of a Messiah which was first eluded to in Gen 3:15.

Re: Oldest known human fossil found in Europe

Its not debatable. The evidence is that there is now skeleton alignment that is the cause of the pain. So since pain came at the fall therefore the skeleton. Rob byers The physiological reason for the increas in pain is definitely debatable!!!!! Here is a possible reason: Maybe the the skeleton ali...

Re: A question about a theological point

Here is a commentary about 1 Corinthians 15:28 from a pastor from which I highly respect his opinion. 1 Corinthians 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto HIM, then shall the SON also himself be subject unto HIM that put all things under him, that GOD may be all in all. 15:28 This word (sub...

Re: How can you tell?

Their web site does seem to indicate that speaking in tongues is a necessary evidence of salvation: The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spir...

Re: Contemperaneous Sources

For the most part you could argue that all written accounts of anything are hear-say. Do we really have absolute proof of the author of anything that has been written over 200 years ago or even yesterday for that matter. Its all hear-say. Anyone is capable of lying about anything. But we can look at...

Re: Is love only a bi-product of salvation?

Ah is it? And as for the deceiving - can Satan actually LOVE truly those who wish to follow him? I mean, does he lure them into thinking he is better and then betray them, or does he not betray them - that he likes the fact they chose him, but they are still in hell... but can Satan truly love some...

Re: Is love only a bi-product of salvation?

God first loved us, and we then choose to serve Him or not.Salvation comes as a response to the outstretched hand of God(love).We love because He first loved us. Yes, exactly No for Satan i actually didnt mean conditional love, because he is attractive or so - i meant as a way of religion or so - i...

Re: Is love only a bi-product of salvation?

I think it might help in our discusions on love, if we identifiy the kind of love we are referring to. Agape, phileo, or eros Or simply put, when one actually LOVES Satan or some evil being and worships it (or one loves himself) - then can we say that is from God? Are animals capable of love? Maybe ...

Re: controversial scriptures

1) Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is DEATH, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". 2) Ezekiel 18:4, 20. "The soul that sins, it shall DIE". Jen, Does this WAGE of sin, being DEATH, refer to the physical DEATH or our spiritual DEATH (which I believe may also be called...

Re: Truth vs. the lie

I have had it posited to me that your salvation doesn't matter and or is not based on certain parts of the Truth as long as we believe that Christ is Lord and that the Father sent Him to die for us on the Cross. I believe as Christ said that a house divided will fall and that being said I would lik...

Re: The Fall of Man

Ok I've skipped a lot of the last few replies, but I have one thing to say. Someone mentioned God creating Adam and Eve and know they'd fail. I believe God did this and He did this because there would be no other way for humans to truly have free will than the way He has Created Earth and the way i...
