    To deny works is just as fatal, is it not? James 4:17.

    A Biblical Conflict

    That is most certainly true. Which of us would require the straightening? I propose all of us in one way or another.

    A Biblical Conflict

    How about this. I replied earlier that God is faithful. God will not forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6-8, Hebrews 13:5). I referenced the prodigal son as an example. He took his inheritance, left the fold, and went out on his own. As far as his father was concerned he was lost (dead in some...

    A quick look at the 4 Christian baptisms

    In Matthew 3:1-12 it seems John was addressing the Pharisees and Saducees when he made that prophecy regarding the baptism of fire but it was Jesus' disciples in which what looked like tongues of fire rested upon. In Mark 1:1-8 it seems John was addressing "all the land of Judea and those from...

    A Biblical Conflict

    Are you declaring the questions presented as foolish and vain because you disagree with them?

    A quick look at the 4 Christian baptisms

    The chaff is burned up with unquenchable fire. Chaff is waste material. I'm not seeing your connection to the disciples who received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

    Or something that looked like tongues of fire. It appears the translators were not absolutely certain so we have differing translations. Here's how I think of it. Suppose I saw a ghost. How would I describe it to someone else? I could say it looked like a cloud or it looked like a fog. Was it a...

    A quick look at the 4 Christian baptisms

    Something like as tongues of fire. I'm not trying to be smart. Just accepting what is written in the Scriptures.

    A Biblical Conflict

    Faithful means loyal. Like the prodigal son's father, God patiently waits with open arms for our return for His will is that all will come to the truth and be saved.

    A quick look at the 4 Christian baptisms

    To look like fire and to actually be fire are two different things. The renderings that JLB quoted here, say it both ways. The question then is, which is correct?

    A quick look at the 4 Christian baptisms

    I don't know, JLB, but the NKJV which you quoted renders it "divided tongues as of fire." The KJV renders it "cloven tongues like as of fire." When I read statements like these I understand them to be quite different from divided tongues of fire or cloven tongues of fire. The first rendering...

    Belief and Faith

    Likewise, arguing is not the same as fighting. An argument by definition is just a point of view.
