    Are WOMEN Pastors Biblical??

    Hey Major- I can hear the roar of the crowds from Denny Stadium on a crisp Fall evening from a ridge behind me. I’m no game statistician, but the only Major I can remember is Major Ogilvie, but he was in the 70’s?

    When Has God Gathered After He Scattered Without Any Repentance?

    Replacement theology-plain and simple. It’s nothing new, and it requires a distorted view of prophesy, and end times.

    Blessings

    Good thread, good replies. I remember a few years back while involved in a study group. It was revealed through many verses that God can and will turn even His chastisement into blessings, when we pause and repent. Also, these blessings are usually meant to be shared.

    Are WOMEN Pastors Biblical??

    The curse is removed? I think you need to take the verses you posted and place them each within their proper context. Start with the curse. We all still physically face death, do we not? We all still suffer, do we not? Is there no more sin? The “go to”— the one so may like to post about “there...

    Are WOMEN Pastors Biblical??

    I find many defenses of pet doctrines fall into a category that parallels the multiplication of Laws the Jews inferred from 10 commandments. If one can move an issue into the realm of emotions, any conclusion is possible; simply look at modern socities pandering of acceptance for the sake of...

    Losing my salvation

    I think an important issue is your statement about how you “feel.” Our feelings are not to be our compass or our guide. God is loving and forgiving, no matter how we feel.

    Does God forgive suicide?

    Blain-It is indeed a mystery how God uses suffering to bring us to a point where we really can see what matters. I know in my life that my priorities were often out of whack and God allowed some painful moments to rearrange my priorities back to where they should have been to start with. I lost...

    I think the more the Scriptures are read, spoken of/about, and studied the better. I’m afraid some view any deviation from a fat book as Unholy.

    I have just seen an advertisement for an updated Geneva Bible. It is arranged whereby each book is printed separately and organised in a holder of some sort. Looks interesting, anyone familiar with this translation? It’s a NT only, but they seem to be working on the OT...

    THIRD TEMPLE NEWS

    I just came across this thread. I read a fair number of pages and it seems a general consensus, that confusion has reigned for quite awhile as to the specific location of the Temple Mount. I have a book from years back that made a good case for the “Dome of the Rock” sitting directly on the...

    I agree, but I think that after the events of Revelation are fulfilled, the intended order of nature will be as it was in the beginning. Isaiah 11:6-9 6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling...

    Eternal security? or loss of salvation? what does the bible really say on these two subjects!

    Was the parable about the younger or the older son, or was there there a deeper message He was teaching the religious leaders?

    Eternal security? or loss of salvation? what does the bible really say on these two subjects!

    The parable of the prodigal son is the third of three parables directed at a mixed audience of tax collectors, sinners, Pharisees , and teachers of the law. All three parables are on the topic of lost things being found: a lost sheep, a lost coin, and a lost son. (take care not to seek the...

    Eternal security? or loss of salvation? what does the bible really say on these two subjects!

    I agree (Amen) the younger son was simply restored to fellowship. He never stopped being his Fathers son. The relationship was momentarily broken by sin, and was restored by repentance.
