Re: Sabbath and bible feasts

One approach I recently read about suggests that "law" is all encompassing, "commands/commandments" are directions to do something, "statutes" and "ordinances" are synonymous and give more detail on...

Re: Are Tongues Real?

I am simply saying what the text says:

Acts 2:6 KJV
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language....

Re: Sabbath and bible feasts

I attempted this a while back, to categorize and index the law, commands, statutes, judgments, ordinances, etc. Each word - in Hebrew, Greek, and English - is distinct, but also loosely synonymous in...

Re: Coming to theaters near you

The reason this is happening is because Christians have abandoned God's law and retreated into a neutered form of extreme Pietism which turns the nation over to the devil. There was a time in America...

Re: Sabbath and bible feasts

The threefold categorization of the law into moral, civil, and ceremonial was invented by Thomas Aquinas (Roman Catholic theologian) in the 13th century. It was upheld by most of the Reformers and is...

Re: Sabbath and bible feasts

A common root of antinomianism is the idea that "Jesus obeyed the law of God in our place", as if He was the substitute for obedience. This is a doctrine of demons calculated to coddle sinners in...

Re: Sabbath and bible feasts

Sin is transgression of the law according to both John and Paul. The Holy Ghost (the real Holy Ghost) reproves sinners (people who transgress the law of God) for their sins (transgressions of the law...

Re: Are Tongues Real?

It is not "more reasonable" to insert things into the text that don't exist, are not mentioned, and which would be impractical anyway.

Acts 2:6 KJV
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude...

Re: Are Tongues Real?

I suspect they are, but I am not sure I fully understand the connection. Or at least I am not sure I could explain it very well.

Re: 3.5 years or 1260 years

The Seventy Weeks is a particular prophetic time period. The 1260 Days is a different prophetic time period. They do not include one another. In other words, the 1260 days is not a part of or section...

Re: 3.5 years or 1260 years

First of all, this discussion has nothing to do with the SDA church. The fact they use the year-day principle has no more connection to them being seventh day Adventists than the fact many Baptists...

Re: 3.5 years or 1260 years

They just happen to be sevens of days though, which were fulfilled as sevens of years.

The word "week" in the KJV old testament is "shabua":

Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for...

Re: Are Tongues Real?

He that speaketh in a tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God, for no man understandeth him, howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

Is that better? The meaning is the same.

Re: Are Tongues Real?

Glossalalia, or "speaking with tongues", is not speaking known languages:

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

That is not what "not under the law" means. That is (one of) the root(s) of your erroneous belief system. Not being under the law does NOT mean "not commanded" to do something.

Re: Should we still observe the sabbath?

They would have to be circumcised. That's basically the whole point of the dispute. By reinforcing the "no Jews eat with gentiles" rule, they were insisting the gentiles were unclean, even though...

Re: Should we still observe the sabbath?

In what way was Peter compelling the gentiles to conduct themselves like Jews? By refusing to eat with them, which was the custom of Jews - they would not eat with gentiles nor even go into their...
