    Grace

    I guess my first Bible study was the result of a visit to a Billy Graham crusade in Chicago in 1962. It was a question and answer type of study sent through the mail and completed with the help of my Sunday school teacher. It left quite an impression upon me. I’m wondering if you have peace in...

    Grace

    As we breathlessly await your response, here is some fodder for you to chew on: The concept of ḥesed describes a human-human relationship, and the responsibilities incurred in such a relationship. When used to describe the divine-human relationship, ḥesed can appropriately be considered a word...

    Grace

    A.W. Tozer says that grace is “the good pleasure of God that inclines him to bestow benefits on the undeserving.” This involves two primary elements: 1) God’s goodness or favor or blessings, 2) bestowed on those who do not deserve it. Grace is often defined as “God’s unmerited favor.” This is a...

    Justification has not come about because of anything believers are capable of achieving on their own

    I guess if one has “perfect” memory, then it’s a simple one and done. I have yet to meet one of those.

    The Curtain Of The Sanctuary Tore Matthew 27:50

    I used this verse(s) years ago with a Mormon. He actually paused his spiel and ask a question or two. Hope it sank in.

    Are you a Trinitarian, and if so, can you defend the doctrine?

    Truth has it’s own two feet to stand upon. But, what about sharing that truth? Is that not in a sense, refuting currently held views of reality and presenting a defense for a different reality . Paul was especially adept at refuting false views of God and in doing so was really defending...

    Questions about JW’s

    You seem to gloss over one small statement. “No one comes to the Father, but by me.” You said “Jesus mirrored the Father so perfectly as to be akin to seeing the Father.“ To come in ones name declares they have the authority and perfect will of the one they represent. So perfect that Jesus is...

    Questions about JW’s

    What do you think Jesus meant in these verses? 5Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7“If you had known Me, you would have known My...

    Questions about JW’s

    Its been a few years since I’ve studied the JW defense of their peculiar translation they call Scripture. I used to have many resources that plowed their favorite tactics. One of my favorite was a transcript of the court proceedings that had their main translator put in a witness chair. His...
