    Setting the Record Straight on Psalm 12

    Acts 2:29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh...

    Does a Sinner Need a Bible to be Saved from the Penalty of Sin

    Which is the second death in the lake of fire? The answer is, NO. What the sinner must have is a faithful preacher who has been saved and believes the word of the Lord and who will tell him the good news. The first gentile to be saved in the NT was Cornelius, the Italian, who was converted in...

    Does Calvinism Teach Soul Sleep

    I post this question because of the comments of two hyper Calvinists on another thread. They were speaking of Lazarus in John 11 being raised from the dead. Their comments seem to indicate they do not take in to account the doctrine of the soul of a man, that it is always self aware. First...

    Who Killed the Fish

    This is a question for the folks who seem to think and teach that, because of a blood sacrifice, the temple in Ezekiel could not be after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which it clearly is. There are clearly blood sacrifices offered during the millennial reign of Christ. Death is not...

    Distinctions in the OT and the NT

    I would like to address what seems to be the presumption of some posters here that Ezekiel’s temple cannot be in the millennial kingdom because of blood sacrifices being offered there. This is a great error and without any scriptural basis at all. I would remind the readers that the NT...

    THE DAY OF THE LORD AND THE COMING JUDGEMENT

    There are 4 major themes in the prophetic word of God that one must be aware of if he is going to properly understand eschatology. They are as follows in no particular order. 1) The Kingdom of God 2) The two comings of Jesus Christ - once to suffer and once to rule 3) The remnant 4) The day of...

    The Beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ - A Time Stamp

    Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; This thread is to convince the readers that God deals with men in cycles of time and to present the case that one can, yea, must, believe the words. For instance, Mark says in the above statement that he is writing about the...

    Faith, the Principle That Obtains the Favor of God

    The definition of faith from the Bible. 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Here is the first illustration of this definition. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds (aions = ages) were framed by the word of God, so that things which are...

    Who is the Silliest Person on Earth

    I will take a stab at answering my own question. I think it is the person who says they are the smartest person in the room while admitting they cannot understand the KJV Bible because of the language barrier. Words like these below. 1 Jn 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the...

    Regeneration - A NT Doctrine

    One cannot be "regenerated" until he is "generated." What does regenerated mean? Well, it means to be born anew. The word is used once in the NT in the context of people being born again and once in the context of the creation being restored to it's pristine condition as at the first. It is a...

    The Salvation of Cornelius an Example in Truth

    Recently I posted a thread showing that God does not save anyone without the human element. I proved that was true from the scriptures. This is 180 degrees opposite than the Calvinists teaching about salvation. The conversion of Cornelius, the first gentile to be saved in the history of the...

    The Gift of God and the gifts of the Spirit

    There is a difference. The scriptures knows of only one gift of God but this gift is expressed in several ways. We will name them and refer to them as synonyms. 1) Jesus Christ, the Son of God 2) Salvation from sin 3) Righteousness 4) Eternal Life 5) The gift of God 6) The Spirit of God and of...

    The Kingdom of God & the Error of Calvinism

    In the thread "Born Again" Civic and others advanced the proposition that the subjects of the kingdom of God had already come and the OT saints were in it. This of course is not true and it highlights the harm that can be done by spiritualizing the OT like most religious systems do. I suppose...

    Why Interpret Acts 13:48 More Literally Than Acts 13:46

    Here are the two verses together. 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken...

    No Salvation Without the Human Element

    The Calvinist system of theology denies through their man made doctrines that salvation is by faith in what God says. Anyone reading this forum would understand that. Does that mean that everyone involved in the Calvinist system are unsaved? No, I don't think so because salvation is a one time...

    The World in the Gospel of John

    Jn 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in...
