Re: Who was Melchizedek?

Christ's priesthood is of the order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4), not of Aaron.

This means that during the old covenant, it was prophesied and expected that there would be a change in the...

Re: Who was Melchizedek?

Reading more closely, it seems Melchizedek is the one receiving tithes, but it is "there", which I take to mean "there in the Genesis account just mentioned". It is said "of whom it is witnessed...

Re: Who was Melchizedek?

Melchizedek having no mom or dad, beginning or end of days, etc means his geneology (a requirement for Levitical priests) is not recorded. Thus, he serves as a TYPE of Christ who is eternal.

Re: Priesthood - Old to New

Well, in the first century, older brothers (including cousins and uncles) held a far more highly respected position in a family than they do nowadays. The modern (intentional, planned) degradation of...

Re: Who was Melchizedek?

There is Scripture, and then there are the Jewish speculative myths (which the apostles warned us against).

Scripturally, Melchizedek was the priest-king of Salem. His genealogy, birth, ancestry,...

Re: Christmas is pagan

Here's a defense of "icons" in worship. You can almost hear the serpent's hiss, by the way. Note carefully the core of the argument, that icon use is not idolatry or pagan, because they represent...

Re: Christmas is pagan

The argument used is:

Premise 1: Pagans did X
Premise 2: Christians do Y (which is not X, but has some similarities to X)
Conclusion: Therefore Christians should not do Y

Besides the fact the...

Re: Christmas is pagan

1. Your line of reasoning allows for veneration of statues and icons of saints. Such veneration is called "worship of idols" unless the statues are Christian saints, then it is claimed to be done in...

Re: Gino Jennings On Soul Sleep

Nobody is saying that the body is alive without the spirit. But you are implying ONLY the body is dead without the spirit.

Scripture speaks of the dead as being the people that are dead, not JUST...

Re: Gino Jennings On Soul Sleep

Wrong, Paul elsewhere identifies we are to be with the Lord in the resurrection, not prior. Therefore 2 Cor 5 is speaking of that event, not an intermediate state.

Re: Christmas is pagan

Most people recognize the modern Halloween customs are MIMICS of ancient pagan customs, and conclude Christians should not do those things, we should not IMITATE HEATHEN RELIGIOUS CUSTOMS. Yet, for...

Re: Christmas is pagan

We are not to learn the way of the heathen, because their customs are vain. They are dismayed at the signs of the heaven, and we therefore should NOT be dismayed at the signs of the heaven. They cut...
