    Faith Without Works is Dead (continuation)

    I've been spending considerable time meditating and studying this topic, and while I don't pretend to have a perfect grasp of it maybe this will edify someone... ---- So what is faith? Well, we're told that... Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of...

    When Has God Gathered After He Scattered Without Any Repentance?

    Hey Pottersclay, He may be referring to somewhere else, but to try to answer for him, I think he may be referring to the following passages: Deuteronomy 30:1-4 30 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and...

    When Has God Gathered After He Scattered Without Any Repentance?

    Agreed. The Almighty's word can't be broken. I disagree. The Almighty's word can't be broken. _______ There's another option. There are still promises that the Almighty will keep with Israel for the sake of the patriarchs He loves, particularly Abraham. Yes, those in Christ are of Abraham's...

    Ok so excluding the OT, Hebrews and James (since I know where you stand regarding them), which remaining books do you think do not apply to gentile believers?

    Ok. In my last post is went over the target audiences of each of the letters we know Paul wrote...and most of them were a mix of Jews and Gentiles. Can you list the books of the bible that you believe are exclusively for gentile believers? I assume the list will by limited to just NT books and...

    Which "saved" are you asking about: delivery from bondage to sin or transformation of mortal bodies to immortal? Does anyone - Jew or gentile - need to offer up animal sacrifices today? No. Because that's specifically what the Messiah came to perform. This is why the study of the OT is...

    The word translated as salvation means "deliverance". The type of deliverance depends on the specific situation shared with us in scripture but the point is to prove that there's a Mighty and Loving God who delivers. You're insinuating that I'm minimizing the Messiah's salvation because I...

    Well...Post an example of me twisting the scriptures, else you're just making an accusation. Surely Christians believe in the right of one defending themselves :)

    (Well The almighty does hide things on purpose, but why He does is another discussion...) The only portion that seems/appears to be at odds with the rest of scripture (from Genesis to Revelation) is Paul's letters. That's the ONLY portion. And we just so happen to have Peter telling believers...

    Well...but he is saying it. And says it in multiple places. But this is why 2 Peter 3:16 warns that it's easy to twist what Paul is saying without a foundation in the OT (you know, all those verses of the past that aren't important anymore lol). Because Paul has a way of saying things that can...

    Two reasons... 1) Definition: "Falling away" is translated from the Greek word "apostasia". This is a compound word in the "passive" voice from "Apo" (i.e. away from) and "histemi" (i.e. to stand in position); the root of which we get our English word "stasis". So the word literally means "drop...

    [Hebrews passage; 1st witness...]This passage implies people have a choice to fall away. [2nd witness...]Paul even explains that a falling away was to occur (...referring to 2 Thess 2) The phrase "falling away" connotes that those who do were once apart of the truth. [3rd witness...]The...

    ...But where did I say or imply he had in my post? And I'm not sure how this question is pertinent to the discussion? Scripture is scripture. Can you explain what you're getting at?
