    Jonah Died and went to Hell

    I am posting this topic because of the chatroom question raised over Jonah in the belly of the fish, and all of the surrounding debate around this. I believe the bible can be taken literally in terms of what transpired. Lets analyse these verses: Jonah 1 17 Now the Lord had prepared a great...

    Gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable???????????

    This verse...... Romans 11v29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Is being used in the wrong context to uphold certain doctrinal positions. It is being used as a promise of God that an INDIVDUAL cannot lose their gift of salvation once they believe (at some point in time) the...

    Awake to Righteousness and Don't Sin

    1 Corinthians 15 34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. This verse should settle the whole matter of these endless debates in the Church. There should be no doubt that this is addressed to the Church. Not unbelievers...

    Election 101

    My personal position is that I don’t follow any TULIP acronym. In fact I refuse to put biblical principles into a nice neat box of easy to understand principles. Reason: I think that many have been led astray by a Fast-Food version of the scriptures, and the risk to a person seeking out the Lord...
