    Passion & Purity or Politically Correct?

    The True Church By Bishop J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) Liverpool, England I want you to belong to the one true Church: to the Church outside of which there is no salvation.

    Contending, Contentions and Apologetics

    Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before...

    Awfully Good Oxymorons

    Since there are UNNAMED posters concerned with having good communication here, I thought I would make a contribution by creating a thread with some some famous ones, and see how things progress. If you clearly misunderstand terms or people, just look in the dictionary. Do not bother me about...

    Growth Baptism views--officially expressed

    [edited by staff] It is no secret that he has been a lightning rod of contention on this site, and I will state clearly that I believe that his words may have been misinterpreted, but I will remain open to original source proof of what one believes. Therefore, I begin with the question, who...

    Your Choice: Circumcision or Concision

    I for one, really abhor the emphasis on laws'-keeping in order to merit salvation. I abhor that because it is foreign to the Bible, and antithetical to the doctrine of free grace, which is clearly taught in the Bible. Therefore this is an exposing and denunciation of the Galatian heresy that...

    Bible Study Archangel Michael = Jesus Christ???

    On another forum, there was a big discussion with some posters who believed that Archangel Michael were the same persons. Because some of the people here may also believe that, I will now give a solid lesson in Greek grammar using the terms of our English grammar. One poster used Hebrews 1:3...

    The salacious life of Joseph Smith

    For many people, gossip is fun. All one needs to do to prove this fact is to see the plethora of scandal-sheet tabloids which are always at the check out lines of grocery stores, and Wal-Mart. What makes them "fun" for some is that by looking down over their noses at the rich and famous, those...

    FYI Mormonism teaches its people to be anti-Christian

    I post this to educate, and not to cause flaming of any person, or people. It is my opinion that too many well-meaning people do NOT know the sources of their anti-Christian beliefs, or the extent to which they are taught by their "biggies" in their church. 1 Nephi 1: 10 And he said unto me...
