September 23 The Tribulation
  
The Bible says that no man knows as to when the Lord returns. And there are several different opinions about the tribulation. One, that Jesus paid the price for sin on the cross, most of these prophecies were fulfilled in 70 A.D., and that we are in the tribulation. Two, that the Lord's sacrifice occurred 483 years after Daniel's proclamation, the clock has stopped, and seven years are due (the tribulation). Three, is similar to #2, but that the tribulation lasts only the last 3 1/2 years *. Daniel 9:24-27, * 12:11-12, Matthew 24:4-51.
The New World Order is quite well established though, Matthew 4:8-9, 2Corinthians 4:4, Ephesians 6:12.


Is Everyone Heaven Bound
  
No & no. Christian Universalism contradicts the Bible.
Matthew 7:13-14, 12:32 "not be forgiven", 20:16, 25:1-13, 41, 46 "everlasting punishment", Mark 3:29, 9:44, 46, 48 "their", Luke 13:23-30, 2Thessalonians 1:8-9 "everlasting destruction", Hebrews 6:1-2 eternal judgment, 9:27, Jude 1:7-13 "vengeance of eternal fire", Revelations 14:10-11 "for ever and ever".


If Adam Didn't Sin
  
josef 3/20 (2) is correct, and the Adams did sin of course. However Philippians 3:20-21, 2Peter 3:10, Revelations 21:1-22:17 give us a glimpse of heaven.


Who Are The Elect Of God
  
Christians! Matthew 24:21-24, Romans chapter 8, 11:5-7, Colossians 3:9-17, Titus 1:1-4, 1Peter 1:1-5, 2Peter 1:1-11.


Suffering In Hell
  
jerry6593: You wrongly equate body and soul. Please consider attempting to understand a position contrary to your own. Revelations 20:5 "But the rest of the dead (G3498 nekros corpse) lived not again until".... Had John wanted to use dianoia, kardia, psyche - Mark 12:30, or pneuma - Acts 7:59, he would have.
Matthew 25:46 "everlasting punishment", Mark 9:44, 46, 48 G846 autos "their", Luke 16:19-31 "rich man", 2Thessalonians 1:8-9 "everlasting destruction", 1Peter 3:18-20 "spirits in prison", Jude 1:7 "vengeance of eternal fire", Revelations 14:10-11 "for ever and ever".


Mary No Physical Death
  
Nowhere!
The early Roman Congregations were quite free of Pagan mythology. But, in the fourth century, a parallel synchronistic "Church" arose that admixed various false beliefs with the true. Mary's story was blended with those virgin and child narratives that went back to Babylon, Mary / Semir-mis and T-mm-z / -ll-t / N-nl-l. Although these themselves may have been corruptions of anecdotes that went back to Noah's time (my opinion). And so, Mary now was, and could do, whatever these false and fabulous maidens could do.


Subject To Own Husband
  
Rita_H and jerry6593, no to infinity!
Rita_H, no to working the red light district, yes to making a sandwich. Women, please don't misuse verses like Acts 4:1, etc. to disrespect your husband's authority, as you also then rebel against the Lord's.
jerry6593 8/27, The verses below are in parallel, but they are not conditional - that is one depends on the other. Your last paragraph is pure deviltry, 2Peter 3:16.
Wife, 1Corinthians 11:3-10, 13, 15-16, 14:34-35, Ephesians 5:22-24, 33, Colossians 3:18, 1Timothy 2:11-14, Titus 2:5, 1Peter 3:1-2, 5-6 / Husband, 1Corinthians 7:33, Ephesians 5:25-29, 31, 33, Colossians 3:19, 1Timothy 5:8, 1Peter 3:7.


What Was The Mark Of Cain
  
No, it doesn't. There may, or may not, have been a physical mark, but if so, it still would also have meant that Cain was under the Lord's protection.
Genesis 4:14-15, Ezekiel 9:3-11, Ephesians 4:30, Revelations 9:4 / but Exodus 12:7, 22-23, Revelations 13:16, 14:11.


How To Properly Tithe
  
If one is a Hebrew, certain crops and animals are subject to the tithe (noxious weeds and kitty cats being excluded), and the items in question must have been grown / raised in Israel only. Redeeming it required an additional 20% over the tithes value though, Leviticus 27:13, 31. Lastly, you will need the use of a Tardis, as the Temple was destroyed in 70 a.d.. But for Christians, Galatians 4:8-11, Hebrews 7:12, 18.


Pyramids Survive Flood
  
And back to the subject at hand: Some of the Pyramids seem to have suffered water damage. Only the sturdier and earlier ones could have withstood being flooded, as the later Pyramids were mostly made up of clay bricks, and Genesis 10:25.
As to the other questions: Democrat vs. Republican - Tweedledum and Tweedledee, 1John 2:1-29.
Preservation of the Bible - Psalm 12:6-7, John 16:13-15, 17:17, 2Timothy 3:16-17.
Popes - It's difficult to figure out who is whom in the Annuario Pontificio, but if you were to find the first Apostate Pontif and call him Antichrstus#1, the succeeding ones would be called Antichristus#2, etc. until we comes to the current one.


Caveman Before Adam
  
Mans creation is mentioned in Genesis 1:27 (the sixth day). It would be logical to both say that no men existed before the first two in existence, and that descendants can't precede their own antecedents.
StrongAxe 7:31: Moving the comma forward in Luke 23:43 is not only unwarranted, but is a peculiar use of the language. In the other 70+ uses of amen G281 soi G4671 lego G3004, even the Russelites keep the comma in place. Luke understood the grammatical rules, and would have written it in a different way had he wanted to say -today semeron G4594 I say-.

Pyramids Survive Flood
  
If that were the case, then the post flood Pyramid and Ziggurat builders were continuing a pernicious tradition, Genesis 11:4. But those built over alluvial sediment would best fit a later build date. The Egyptian time line is based on the work of Manetho. It had to be revised as some of the Kings were ruling at the same time, and the dates should not have been added together. This would also resolve the discrepancies between his, and the Greek and Hebrew Histories.
Most likely, the Jews were not great fans of Egyptian architecture, Exodus 5:9-19.


Once Saved Always Saved
  
Salvation: Armenianists don't know if a person can lose it, Methodists say that it's possible, Lutherans tie it to faith in Christ (that can be rejected), and Calvinists believe in eternal security. There are some who believe that one only has to assent to the Lord's work, which is not the same as trusting in Him, ascentia vs. fiducia.*1.
James_L: Since I'm not making an argument for works-righteousness, it would be helpful if you would specifically address what you disagree with in my statement 7/8. Also, what are your belief(s): antinomianism, universalism, that a Christian is not the Lord's servant, or?
*1 Romans 5:20-6:23, Ephesians 2:10, James 1:22-27, 2:14-26 (true faith), 1John 2:3-6.


Is Holy Spirit A Mother
  
There are many people who do not have a Biblical worldview, but instead, filter the Lord's Word through their own philosophical lens *1. In keeping with the admixture of Platonic-humanism, some people are trying to feminize the scripture *2.
Nicole_Lacey: Your comment on 7/4 was incomplete as the R.C. (itself) refers to those in the Trinity as masculine. I gave three verses in the third line 7/7, and the Catechism as evidence.
*1 Matthew 21:42-44. Mark 7:6-7, 13, 1Corinthians 11:3-16, Galatians 1:6-9, Colossians 2:8, 1Peter 2:6-8, 2Peter 3:16-17.
*2 Deuteronomy 22:5, Matthew 15:13-14.


7 Sacraments Is 7 Hills
  
Thank you Mima:
Pope Eugene IV, the Bull Cantate Domino.
"The ' Roman Church firmly believes ' that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, ' pagans, ' Jews ' heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal, but that they will go into the eternal fire ' unless before death they are joined with Her, ' only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one ' can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church."


Once Saved Always Saved
  
Cluny: A person who puts their confidence in the Lord, (and in His efficacious substitutionary death) to save them is a new creation. While Simul Justus et peccator is true for Christians, someone who remains uninfluenced by the Holy Spirit is not "once saved" *1. As it is God who saves us, it must be He who preserves us *2.
Nicole_Lacey 7/6, the principle(s) of "a few priest" would be Popes Julius II and Leo X. The C.C.C. doesn't address its own long and sordid history of simony.
*1 Matthew 7:21, Romans 1:18-32, 1Corinthians 5:11-13, 6:9-11, Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:5-6, Colossians 3:5-6, Titus 3:2-8, 1Peter 4:1-4, 1John 2:19.
*2 John 3:14-21, 10:27-30, Romans 8:1-39, 11:29, Titus 3:5-7.


Tithing Before The Law
  
Neither before the law, nor now *1. However, being charitable is consistent with having a new nature *2.
Note: Abraham gave the standard Middle-Eastern 10% war-booty kickback, Genesis 14:20, Hebrews 7:4.
*1 Acts 15:5-10, Galatians 4:1-5:12, Hebrews 7:12, 18, 8:6-7.
*2 Deuteronomy 15:7-11, Romans 12:8, 2Corinthians 9:7, Galatians 2:10, 1Timothy 5:16-18, 1Peter 4:9, 1John 3:17.


7 Sacraments Is 7 Hills
  
Nicole_Lacey: I will try to be more direct. One - re "context", see 2/2 *1 . Two - re "study more", you lack wisdom *3. Three - re "argumentum", An example, learner2 made a comment on 6/29, and so you asked him to write a passage from the C.C.C.. Four / Seven - re "consider", you are inconsiderate. Please, see the verses given 2/2. Five - re "evidence", see your entry 2/2 *2 which is a polemic only. Also, where did Cluny write this? Six - re "repent", self evident.
As to your questions: 1. A Herculean task. 2. I'll do this elsewhere. 3. Giving a response that someone disagrees with is still an answer.
*3 1Corinthians 8:2, Galatians 6:3, 2Timothy 3:16-17, James 1:26, 2Peter 3:16.


Is Holy Spirit A Mother
  
No, Sophia G4678 is the Greek word for wisdom, Wisdom is personified as a woman in Proverbs 1:20, etc., but God always refers to Himself in the masculine, Genesis 1:26 (masculine plural), Luke 4:18, John 16:13.
The Gnostics believed in a goddess called Sophia. And so an amalgam of Christianity with an antagonistic philosophy produced a monstrous theology. 2Corinthians 6:14-18.
John 3:6-7 doesn't imply that the Spirit is female, just as Genesis 2:21-24 doesn't imply that Adam was a woman. We often think certain characteristics are male or female. But if a man were to comfort his own small child, it would be unfair to say that he violated Deuteronomy 22:5 for example.
Nicole_Lacey: C.C.C. 683, 687.
