The Apocryphal Books

It was brought to my attention that the apocryphal books are good to read and helpful in understanding some scriptures. Dake in God's Plan for Man called them a group of spurious books that were rejected from our present cannon of Scriptures. On pages 14-15 he listed 13 reasons and he said they are ...

Re: THE NEW BIRTH

I believe there is a difference between the faith of Christ and faith in Christ. The unmerited grace and faith in Ephesians 2:8-9 occurs after one puts their faith in Christ. — http://dakebibleboard.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7116&start=10#p91997 Hi, Olindquist, This sounds confusing, to me. W...

Re: THE NEW BIRTH

You may or may not find this interesting. The construction of the Greek text of Ephesians 2:8-9 makes clear that both grace and faith are entirely unmerited. Many Protestants are shocked to discover this is precisely what the Catholic Church teaches—and baptizes babies to prove it. How much more ca...

Re: THE NEW BIRTH

It is called the new birth because it is being born anew, being begotten again by the Holy Spirit into God's family. 2 cor.5:17-18; Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION (a new creature altogether) (a new species of being), old things have passed away; behold all things have becom...

Re: Eternal Security

Given what is said by Him in 20:23, my guess is that the priestly measure was given to them at that time. So prior to Jesus breathing on them to receive the Holy Spirit, the disciples did not have ability to remit or retain people's sins? Good question, Olindquist. Right now I cannot think of any S...

Re: Eternal Security

It has been a quite a discussion on eternal security and the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I want to thank everyone's responses and recap what has come up. Questions on Eternal Security: 1) Is there more to eternal security than just not committing a death penalty sin (according to Dake's definition)?...

Re: Eternal Security

Can anyone explain how known ministers who have been in a known unrepentant death penalty sin (which would cause them to be unsaved according to Dake's definition) and still flow in the supernatural including casting out devils?

To deny this has happened is either a sign of ignorance or just lying.

Re: Eternal Security

"Satan, who causes sickness by demon oppression (Acts 10:38; Luke 13:11-16) can take off what he puts on without opposing himself or casting himself out. When he can damn a soul by getting a person to deny the essentials of the Bible that will save the soul, then it is to his advantage to dece...
