When Was Jesus Born
  
The current theory is between 7 and 4 BC. The reason it is not 0 as expect is because the counting practice of dating through roman emperors got messed up because Ceasar Augustus changed his name from Octavious.


Thoughts On AD Movie
  
I have not seen it. I probably will enjoy for 2 reasons. The early church story has not been well created visually and I like Acts.
As far as new age that needs to be defined more. But I believe that their is a lot of room and freedom for artistic vision to present the major doctrinal themes of the Bible.


What Is Rigtheousness
  
//Adam was the seed for sinful man, and Jesus was the seed of righteousness. This is why he was called the 2nd Adam.//David
Yes I agree with this. Because of Adam we do not get a choice to be sinful or sinless. By birth we carry the image of Adam with us. However, Jesus was not born of Adam (virgin birth) thus he had the choice to sin or not to sin.


What Is Rigtheousness
  
//I believe sin is the opposite of righteousness.//

I partially agree with you, maybe I am grasping at straws. I have to remember that sin is what I do or have done, but righteousness is what I am. I am not making lite of sin and the serious consequences that effect me daily. However, my identity is found solely in my righteousness declared to me by God through my faith in him.


What Is Rigtheousness
  
//David. Where does scripture instuct you to explain.//

The great commission


What Is Rigtheousness
  
Declared innocent from all offenses


Saved If Don't Understand
  
With infant salvation I tend to rely on 2 Samuel 23b. But the meaning of the verse is still debateable and not conclusive. I would also state that even Abraham did not fully understand the salvation process or procedure, but we agree that he was saved (righteous). He knew only that salvation was God's workings not his works.


Are These False Teachers
  
//Please read the following, Herod vs. Barnabus and Paul, Acts 12:21-23, 14:8-18. A true teacher would agree with 2Timothy 4:2-6, and not participate in a U.G.I. leadership conference with various Emergent Church, Seeker Sensitive, and Word of Faith profligates//---Glenn

I usually listen to Robert Morris weekly. I have never seen or heard Morris promote himself or try to steal God's glory for himself nor do I find him deviating from the Bible.


Are These False Teachers
  
I don't know who Jack Hayford is.

Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Texas is not a false teacher. I don't know why he got called 4th member of trinity but I don't see him calling himself that.


Dress Code For Clients
  
Did you talk to him about it?


Righteous Not Forsaken
  
Can you provide book chapter and verse please. Thanks.


Overcome Severe Depression
  
//Christians as there's a stigma attached and other's reactions can be brutal.//

Definition Christian (noun) - 1) religion based on the fact that all people are sinners needing a savior. 2)the only people group that shoots its wounded


Overcome Severe Depression
  
Counseling, a good christian trained counseler. They know the correct questions to unlock your mental attacks, from an objective and distant perspective. The easiest person to lie to is yourself.


Explain Romans 4:4
  
If I work for you, I would expect you to pay me (debt). Which is true. Therefore, If I work for God, I would expect God to pay me (salvation). However this is wrong as shown in Romans 3:10-11, 20 we see that we cannot be righteous on our work. Because we are saved by grace (Romans 3) not works. Paul uses Abraham to show even he obtained salvation by faith not circumcision or more broader term a work throughout Ch 4.
Remember Romans Ch. 1-9 is one single argument, unfortunately with chapters we tend to break it up a lot.


Why Did John Use Logos
  
/What "beginning" is John talking about here?/

When God created the heavens and the earth.
John MacArthur has a good study book on John Ch.1 and can explain it better than I can in 125 words.


When To Join A Church
  
I think we need to define "join"

Join can mean to attend a service or Bible study, which I totally encourage christian and non-christian to attend church.

Join can also mean to be a member and take on responsiblilities and commitments as defined by that congregation. This should only be christians.

There might be more, please list.
