    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    The ideas in this post seem to have a lot more to with gnostics like Valentius or the beliefs found in a book like A Course in Miracles rather than the Holy Bible.

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    What is the satanic realm. And you have not shown me from the Bible where the "fallen ones" created the Earth. I have shown you several texts that say that it was God who created not just the Earth, but everything.

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    Please show from the Bible where this Earth was created after the Garden of Eden. Please show from the Bible that it was the fallen angels that created it.

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    I suggest you read the verses I posted again, Let's look at Nehemiah: You alone are the LORD. You created the heavens, the highest heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all things, and the host of heaven worships You...

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    That statement doesn't even last past the first verse in the Bible. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis1:1 KJV In case you think that the claim made in Genesis 1:1 is an aberration: You alone are the LORD. You created the heavens, the highest heavens with all...

    SDA’s Investigative Judgement teaching from Ellen’s Book, “The Great Controversy”.

    I've asked a question of my Adventist friends, including classmates who became pastors, and have never gotten an answer that makes sense. Adventists believe that Enoch and Elijah were translated without seeing death and taken directly to heaven. They also believe that Moses was resurrected and...

    SDA’s Investigative Judgement teaching from Ellen’s Book, “The Great Controversy”.

    Adventism's beliefs don't even support the doctrine of the IJ. Adventists believe the books of judgement were not opened until Oct 22, 1844. However, they also believe that Enoch was taken to heaven. They believe Elijah was taken to heaven. They believe that Moses was resurrected and taken...

    Sabbath Day Salvation

    Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. For we...

    Sabbath Day Salvation

    I saw the ten commandments written on them [the tables of stone] with the finger of God. On one table were four, and on the other six. The four on the first table shone brighter than the other six. But the fourth, the Sabbath commandment, shone above them all; for the Sabbath was set apart to be...

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    No, I am not dismissing the fact that God alone is immortal. I am simply accepting the Bible at face value when it tells me I have eternal life now. I believe John 3:16 when it tells me I will not perish but have everlasting life.

    Works Relation to Salvation

    I was not referring to all of the admonitions that Paul said. I was referring specifically to what we gentile converts to Christianity were obligated to observe in regards to the Old Covenant Law. Essentially what James suggested was a reiteration of what are known as the Noahide Laws. These...

    Works Relation to Salvation

    “For I say to you that unless your righteousness far surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:20 NASV Wow, and the Pharisees were scrupulous in observing every jot and tittle of the law. What is Jesus telling us here? I think I know...

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    This is not a personal attack, but if I were you, I'd try and grow some thicker skin. That post seemed pretty mild.

    How Eternal Life is Maintained

    God alone is immortal, but He promises us that if we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, we have eternal life now. Not at some point in the future, now. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have...

    The New Covenant

    Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the rules. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do.” And Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. He rose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the...
