Understanding Calvinism
  
Pls ask a more specific question about Calvinism.


How Do You Spank A Child
  
---Jed

Good question. You CAN learn.

Now learn this: if your question is not answered, the person asked cannot be lying.

And yet again, I will not answer your question.

Num 31:17 (JUB) Now therefore kill every male among the little ones and kill every woman that has known a man by lying with him.

Jed, here is another opportunity for to show again your superior intellect, and judge God to be so terrible again for daring to cause pain to a little one.


Baptise Other People
  
The early Church taught that baptism actually washed away one's sins. When did that change?
---learner2


Mat 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance . . .

Water = ablution (G907), intending to show repentance = a reversal from rebellion to obedience {reformation} (G3341)


1Jn 1:7 . . . the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.


Belief In Angels
  
Many do not really believe in God. Others do not believe that God does not lie.


When To Join A Church
  
Rom 7:4 . . . that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

The True Church is essentially married to Christ. If you are unwilling to enter a covenant of eternal marriage with Christ, would He want you in His True Congregation?

Being "born again" occurs after God has given you His Holy Spirit to live inside your body. God gives His Spirit AFTER you have entered into the Marriage Covenant with Jesus.

Refs to being married to God. Is 54:5, 62:5, Jer 3:14, 31:32, Hos 2:16, 19, Rom 7:4, 2 Cor 11:2


Committed Adultery In The Past
  
This was posted seven years ago. Go do God's work now.


Is Levitation Demonic
  
No self-serving power comes from God.


What Is Reprobate Mind
  
-2

2Co 4:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing . . . the gospel . . . Christ . . .

2Co 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

Atheist,

Since God can remove your blindness - Luk 24:32, why hasn't He? Has God left you blind because He loves you?

You are here serving Satan, sowing discord, because you don't even believe in God. God hates those that sow discord - Pr 6:19.

I am the Christian, not you.

Yet, I hope you repent and RUN to God.

Baptism Of The Holy Spirit
  
The Holy Spirit is God.

Jesus came down from Heaven - Jn 6:38
Jesus is God - Jn 1:1, 10, 14, 1Jn 5:7
Jesus is Truth - Jn 14:6
Spirit is truth - 1Jn 5:6

The Holy Spirit is a gift that contains many gifts.

Luk 11:13 If ye . . . know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

1Co 12:4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit,

utterance of wisdom,
utterance of knowledge,
faith,
healing,
working of miracles,
prophecy,
discerning spirits,
speaking in tongues,
interpreting tongues


What Is Reprobate Mind
  
Atheist,

Jas 2:19 You believe that there is one God, you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Matt 8:29 . . . Jesus, you Son of God? are you come here to torment us before the time?

Luke 8:28 . . . Jesus, you Son of God most high? I beseech you, torment me not.

Matt 25:30 And cast you the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Luke 13:28

Rejecting Jesus & rejecting truth is why they will suffer. Even the devils fear that suffering.

Prov 8:17 I love them that love me

Restated, this means, "I hate them that hate Me."

I hope you will surrender to Jesus. The devils would if they could.


Can I Remarry My Husband
  
Dt 24:1 Laws Concerning Divorce
"When a man takes a wife and marries her, . . . and he writes her a certificate of divorce . . .
2 and if she goes and becomes another man's wife,
3 and the latter man hates her and writes her a certificate of divorce . . . or if the latter man dies, who took her to be his wife,
4 then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, . . .

1st husband is prohibited from remarrying his former wife, once she marries 2nd husband.


How To Lose Your Salvation
  
Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing, it is the GIFT of God,

Ro 11:29 For the GIFTS and the calling of God are irrevocable.

Once given, God does not retrieve salvation.

People who mistakenly think they are saved, but are not, think they can lose salvation. But one cannot lose a GIFT from God. They were never given the GIFT in the 1st place.


Baptism Of The Holy Spirit
  
Water baptism is an outward sign that a person is accepting God into his/her life. The Christian idea of water baptism intends to convey the notion of immersion, with the intent to cause a permanent change.

Spirit Baptism is an outward sign that God is accepting a person into His Life. Jesus was immediately baptized in the Holy Spirit upon emerging from the Jordan River - Mt 3:16, but that does not often happen with men.

Men are usually baptized in the Spirit some time after they have been baptized in water (Acts 19:3-5). Some are baptized in the Spirit before they are baptized in water (Acts 10:44-47).


Cursed If You Don't Tithe
  
To tithe is from God. He did not consult me.

One's tithe was to come from one's "increase", whether of crops, beasts, or gifts. Still in effect in a non cash economy.

Our increase is $$$. Nowhere does God say, "Because your increase is dollars, you do not have to tithe."

Levites were servants to the priest - Num 18.
Priests / pastors have those who serve with them today. Perhaps to you, not calling them Levites is justification to withhold Jesus' tithe.


Tithe Or Feed My Chilldren
  
I pay a double tithe and a freewill offering (see Malachi 3). This forces me to trust God to provide. He has never failed me. So I believe that you should tithe.

However, God understands that faith has to grow. Consider giving 1% and ask God to magnify your faith so you can give 2%. When you are able to give 2%, then ask Him for faith to give 3%.

If you are faithful to keep your giving promises, I believe God will slowly take your giving where He wants you to be, as He did for me.
