Strengthening families through biblical principles.
Focus on the Family addresses the use of biblical principles in parenting and marriage to strengthen the family.
Okay, take a look at Revelation 12:17 and Revelation 14:12. Is it command or Commandments?
How many of us will be perfectly sanctified at the time of our deaths? I dare say most of us will be in need of further purification in order to enter the gates of heaven after we die
I understand this teaching of fulfillment of the Commandments. But in reality it isn't just I know it, because it is written in my heart or it is upon Jesus on the cross. Just like you see it is about to keep it. Many Christians don't know that the Sabbath is a day. It is the 7th day of creation. And it is written what to do on this special day. Why God said to: "REMEMBER"? Do you know why? Let me know okay. Bless
It sounds like you are referring to the colloquial expression that is common among protestants.
There is no compromise between God and the devil: each is in the war for a total victory, and what that means is that the devil will use all manner of devices to bring people against us in their sinfulness, because they are the ones who are literally unable to love us as God loves us - they do those things because they do not belong to God and neither do they know God (John 15:18-23). But God's purpose in justice is to save (Isaiah 54:17), and it is imperative that we are found to be innocent in His eyes before our accusers (1 John 2:1-2, Revelation 12:10). It is through remaining free of sin by trusting in God through the persecutions (Romans 8:28, Philippians 4:6-7), that He is able to ultimately complete His judgment of those who do their sin against us (Psalms 92:5-9, Romans 12:1, 1 Peter 2:20-24, Hebrews 12:25-29).But you have faithfully followed my teaching, way of life, purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions, and sufferings that happened to me in Antioch, in Iconium, and in Lystra, what sort of persecutions I endured, and the Lord delivered me from all of them. And indeed, all those who want to live in a godly manner in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil people and imposters will progress to the worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you continue in the things which you have learned and are convinced of, because you know from whom you learned them, and that from childhood you have known the holy writings that are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (St. Paul, 2 Timothy 3:10-15)
Christianity teaches that there is an awareness of the self that endures even after the body has expired. The parable of Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16:19-31 tells us that there is an impassable chasm between those who are on the side where the saints reside, and those who are cut off forever. This is the most common meaning that Christians have in mind when they talk about being saved: they believe that they will be on the side of heaven rather than hell. As I have explained already, John 3:16 speaks about the erosion of an intrinsic spiritual life that is within us (John 1:4), whereas the state of the soul in an afterlife speaks more about becoming aware of who we have become when we finally are unable to evade the judgment of God (Matthew 25:31-46, Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, John 8:21-24).The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. (Jesus Christ, John 6:54).
if i use scripture that says the exact truth word for word .its not man interpretation the term purgatory is not found in scripture. i challenged you to study out justification/ justified sanctify read 1 john 1:9 and read 1 john 1:7 study about being redeemedI've heard this claim more than once on here. Yet many sola scriptura perspectives are indeed man made. Your interpretation of scripture is man made.
You think you are quoting God directly every time you quote scripture?
After translations from another language. Contexts of what the culture was like in those countries 2000 years ago.
So many interpretations. 1000s of denominations. Look at all the arguing that goes on here. And that is just among sola scriptura members.
And then there is the varied Bible commentaries. Everyone is an amateur theologian. I prefer to read the professional theologians.
Yes. Nothing less.. nothing more..
Here is the scripture on how to be saved.
if you do a survey 90% of people will most likely answer yes they are saved. but you ask have you had a born again experience it throws them off. the word saved is used frequently in the Bible as well as converted .yes the word believe many associate believe simply believing in God..To me this is a simple but great CONTROVERSIAL question and topic.
For me, as an older believer, when I met the lord in 1978, the popular term of the day was "CONVERTED" or "BELIEVED".
You never heard the term "SAVED".
It just was never used.
let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.Lord save us. Save us from taking our version of being saved, too seriously
That question arises through an intrinsic understanding of justice (Proverbs 17:15). It is a question coming naturally, that sinners cannot answer without twisting upright judgment into their favour.Animal sacrifice - Like What?
That's what underpins the statement in Hebrews 10:26-27, especially verse 29. To understand why the blood of bulls and goats could never take away sins (it is because the blood of animals is a thing so common - they shed the same blood daily for food - therefore there is not enough power in the blood to invoke remorse and compel them to repent. The fact is that they believed their sin would be forgiven by shedding more blood, therefore the temple had become an industry of slaughter driven by sin. However, if the blood of Jesus Christ is unable to compel remorse for sin, then what more can be done? The one who disregards the blood of the covenant of grace is only fit for destruction (Isaiah 5:1-7).He knew our temptations, yet did not sin.
jerry63935not my version but scripture plainly tells us. you fall for so much wind doctrine your not even sure
