    The Great Commission

    So which is more important? Water baptism or biblical discipleship? An argument can be made that Mat 28 is not referencing water baptism when viewed in the Greek. I do believe that all believers should partake of water baptism but I also believe that it is essential to instruct new believers in...

    Bible Application Challenge Verses

    Ps 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Persecution and oppression led the apostles to take the gospel into the known world of the time. Many were martyred for Christ. For the cause of Christ Roge

    Bible Application Challenge Verses

    The apostles did not take up arms against Rome nor did they storm the temple and overthrow the Pharisees. What if it is Gods will that we die at the hand of our enemies? For the cause of Christ Roger

    The Great Commission

    Well since you are not qualified biblically speaking to pastor a church I guess it really doesn't matter what position you take. Not that the husband of one wife being taught as a requirement to pastor a church is any impediment to your aspirations. I would love to see what an ordination...

    Are 'pastors' Biblical? (Modern as opposed to Biblical pastors)

    According to Eph 4:11 the pastor and teacher roles are combined. A pastor must be apt to teach. Peter was instructed to feed the lambs so they would obey the word of God not Peter. Focus. For the cause of Christ Roger

    Are 'pastors' Biblical? (Modern as opposed to Biblical pastors)

    I find this a bit self serving. God does gift pastor/teachers to the church. It is a calling from God not from men. We see even among the apostles the need to have others to tend to the waiting of tables and such. Pastors do not pastor a church to obtain monetary wealth. It is common for some...

    Bible Application Challenge Verses

    Joh 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. I am not able to fight for a kingdom of this world when I am a subject of a kingdom that...

    Calvinists are preaching a false message .

    There are a lot of verses that teach that man cannot saved himself. Those verses are used improperly by Calvinists to hang folks out in the land of no hope. John 1:8-9 lets man know there is hope. That hope is Jesus Christ. Jesus came to seek and to save lost souls. John 3:18-21 shows why some...

    The Saving results of the Death of Christ !

    The church is not the kingdom of God. Scriptures harmonize it is you that does not harmonize. You are a conglomeration of disconnected and unrelated religious ideas. For the cause of Christ Roger

    The Saving results of the Death of Christ !

    No that's not correct. Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father waiting till His enemies be made His footstool. So many errors in your theology. For the cause of Christ Roger

    TONGUES false teaching.

    How do you relate to John 16:8-11? For me Romans 6:23 was very concerning when I understood that the death spoken of was eternal death in the lake of fire. For the cause of Christ Roger

    TONGUES false teaching.

    Pardon my ignorance but what is it that you were saved from? I'm not asking you to be overly personal here on a open forum but what were you saved from? For the cause of Christ Roger

    Calvinists are preaching a false message .

    I believe that genuine believers are eternally secure in Christ. I believe that a genuine believer in Christ would never desire to be unsaved and return to a condemned state. I believe that Christ will not lose any who are His. If one "walks away" they were never His. Many profess that which...
