    Baptizing your children.

    This is the Christian family forum, so let's talk about family. They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” And they spoke the word of the Lord to him together with all who were in his house. And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their...

    Is there any Lutheran's here?

    I have a couple of questions if you don't mind answering. Now mind you I am not being contentious. I am just trying to understand. 1. Please explain why infant baptism, as to why you do that? 2. Also please explain why you don't submerge when baptizing. The reason I asked the second question...

    Article IX: Of Baptism. Of Baptism they teach that it is necessary to salvation, and that through Baptism is offered the grace of God, and that children are to be baptized who, being offered to God through Baptism are received into God's grace. They condemn the Anabaptists, who reject the...

    Let scripture change your mind, don't bent scripture to fit your thinking.

    So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them and *said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have...

    Forgiveness and healing

    Getting into a boat, Jesus crossed over the sea and came to His own city. And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven." And some of the scribes said to themselves, "This fellow blasphemes." And...

    Leaky Bible

    So a friend of mine was travelling through the area and visited the book store where a Bible supposedly produces volumes of oil. I don't know the full story on this thing, but he brought some of the oil which they give away to visitors at no cost. Have any of you seen this thing?

    Thoughts and scripture on my mind this morning.

    What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him...

    Genesis, sons of God, nephilim, and Giants

    Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. Then the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever...

    Grace

    Grace has to be the one of the most used yet least understood terms of the Bible. Most evangelicals will immediately spout out ," the unmerited favor of God", but this is a vapid understanding. Yes it is an unmerited favor from God but it's so much more that I think this term cheapens the depth...

    Buy a sword?

    And He said to them, "When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, " No, nothing." And He said to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy...

    The Calvin / Servertus controvercy

    I have read more than a few times on this forum about how John Calvin is a murderer. After some research I find that the allegations are quite erroneous. Calvin took the considerable risk of travelling to Paris to meet with Servetus, either — depending on which account we credit — to “gain him...

    Why is sin so tempting?

    I hate sin, I wish I could live in a world without temptation and without any desire to do sinful things; yet I find myself in sin. Tempted and drawn away by desire that I despise and am disgusted by. I don't understand why I would want to do things that I find repulsive. I agree with God on the...

    These words speak for themselves, and are convicting

    Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, "The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness." Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and...

    Saving faith

    What is saving faith? Is it enough to know who Christ is and what he did for you and pledge loyalty, or does it have to be what John Piper says, what he calls Christian hedonism?

    Nearly 2000 years later

    So we still argue over the same old stuff that has been argued from the Ascension of Christ. Works or faith? Simple enough if your faith don't cause works you have nothing. And if you have works but no faith your Works will be short-lived and won't mean anything one without the other is nothing...

    Why?

    Why does most Christian music suck so bad? Why does it have to be over produced vapid lyrics simplistic rhyme scheme's and the same three chords over and over and then digital fill sounds? Why? Oh why oh why?

    Sin unto death

    If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not...
