No longer will OSAS vx OSNAS be allowed to be debated, argued, or discussed in theology forum. Too much time is required to monitor and rescources used to debate this subject which hasn't been definitively decided in 3,000 years.
Yes, Paul did baptize some into water in his early ministry. In fact, Paul himself was water baptized by Ananias in Acts 9:18. Paul also circumcised Timothy (Acts 16:3), performed vows and head shavings (Acts 18:18), kept feasts (Acts 18:21), and even raises a man from the dead (Acts 20:10)...
I would be glad to answer this inquiry, a question that very few church members have ever considered. While I cannot quote every verse in its entirety for sake of brevity, I do trust that you will—and I strongly urge you to—take your KJV Bible and compare the following verses cited in the table...
For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
This verse is most commonly taught as an adolescent and used to prove that young children are safe and will not be tossed into the lake of fire. Though I do agree that children who have not come o the...
- For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
I happen to find this statement very interesting. I think that there is more to the type that the Lord Jesus Christ presents here. I think...
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
Does one really have the "right" to become sons of God?
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: ~ AV
John 8:32 - And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:36 - If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
This is an act of creation.
You are made free from being a servant of sin.
John 8:34 - Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say...
A common argument that disputes the rapture is
" How many times is Christ coming back? It is his SECOND COMING, not his THIRD. There is no rapture because this will make it his THIRD coming"
or something around those lines. Where in the bible does it state how many times he is to come...
1 Cor 15: 52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Notice carefully, "at the last trump". It is not trumpet, but "at the last trump". But, it is made by a trumpet.
1 Cor 15: 3-4 - For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;4. And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Here is John 7: 8-10 from a few different versions. Notice how Jesus tells his brothers that He is NOT going to the feast and yet he goes anyways.
American Standard Version (ASV)
8 Go ye up unto the feast: I go not up unto this feast; because my time is not yet fulfilled.
9 And having said...
Matthew 5: 22 - But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca ,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. - NIV

as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “ I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”— “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’” ~ NIV
What is wrong with this picture?
How do you feel about the coming four blood moons that land on the Lords feast days in 2014-2015? As far as I know, This has happened 7 times since Christ death(this will be number 8). on top of that, there is suppose to be a full solar eclipse on Nisan 1 2015..
The last 3 times:
