    Calvinism and the Nicene Creed

    My point is that I don't believe that the Roman Catholic Church as we know it existed in 325. I believe it did evolve the Church's merging with the state.

    Calvinism and the Nicene Creed

    You're welcome! I'm a little confused. Are you saying that this statement is the Roman Catholic Church?

    Calvinism and the Nicene Creed

    Thanks! However, most of the things listed aren't in the creed.

    Born again or not

    I agree with you there.

    Born again or not

    I don't believe that's what He was referring to. I believe the metaphor, "born again" is a reference to the Resurrection. Paul wrote to the church at Rome, 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken...

    Born again or not

    But being born of God doesn't necessarily mean being born again. Jesus words were to the Jews. He specifically said that He had come to the Jews. The context of the statement is that of the Jewish nation. As I pointed out they were already born of God once as a nation. Jesus told Nicodemus that...

    The faith "OF" Christ vs faith "IN" Christ

    The faith of Jesus Christ is the Gospel message.

    Born again or not

    The process of believing and being saved is the same. However, the phrase "born again" was specific to Israel. Israel was already God's son. 22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: (Exod. 4:22 KJV) So, they were born of God. Not...

    'Speaking in Tongues', true vs false.

    No, it's not. The gift of speaking in tongues was given to the early church as a sign to the Jews. Isaiah spoke of Jesus. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. (Isa. 8:18 KJV) He...

    Does "one holy catholic and apostolic church" mean catholic as "universal"?

    In the Creed catholic means universal.

    Calvinism and the Nicene Creed

    Can you give some evidence that the Creed is that of the Roman Catholic Church?

    Born again or not

    The term "born again" actually applied to the Jews. The Jews expected to inherit the promises made to Abraham, because they were Abraham's seed. His physical seed. They were born the seed of Abraham. Jesus was telling Nicodemus that simply being the physical seed of Abraham was not sufficient to...

    The Life and the Blood

    The souls were under the altar. The altar is where the sacrifices took place. There were sacrifices everyday, so the ground under the altar would be saturated with blood. Consider what Moses wrote. KJV Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon...
