Re: ARE YOU COUNTING DOWN THE OMER?

Question? Why wouldn't the Rapture be on the 40th day after Passover? The day that Jesus ascended up on high? Why rule it out? That way (and I write as a dispensationalist for purposes of this post), the Law could restart for the 70th Week on Pentecost, once again, so that the Jews and future Tribul...

Re: Is your church still meeting or shut down?

I received word, today, that one of the churches that we regularly visit will maintain being shut down for in person services through June 30th, at least. Now, granted, they did have a flood, yesterday, with fish in the parking lot, too. But, here's an interesting perspective on the Church shutdown ...

Re: Baptismal Regeneration?

How about this?

Is there evidence that at least some in the early church believed in salvation without water baptism or separate from water baptism?

Baptismal Regeneration?

Over the last several months to few years, we have been discussing topics that touch upon when a person is born again as it relates to water baptism. In doing some somewhat lazy internet searches over the past day or two, I came across the claim, more than once, that the early church believed in bap...

(Isa 7:14) So, in your belief, all are born holy, innocent, blameless, and sinless. Agreed. Yet, many die in a state that most would call inn...

Re: Why Was the Virgin Birth Necessary?

1 Corinthians 15:21-22 New King James Version For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. By Adam came death. Where does it mention any kind of sin? It's clearly implied given death. The wages of sin ...
