Predestined For Hell
  
No where in scripture does it say that God predestines an individual to Hell.
Multiple scriptures state that God predestines individuals for heaven.
Those who go to hell deserve hell.
We would all go to hell if we were not predestined to salvation and heaven by God.


Baptism In The Epistles
  
Cluny, here are a few verses referencing water baptism:
Matt 3:7, Matt 21:25, 1 Peter 3:21, John 1:33

Here are some verses concerning baptism not performed by man: 1 Cor 12:13, Col 2:12


References both: Matt 3:11, Mark 1:8,


Force Us To Be Saved
  
ds, concerning fighting, and killing, etc.:
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like...
This is all due to sin.

Concerning God's choices:
Matt 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

He does what is best.


Christians With Depression
  
I want to thank all of you for responding. Cluny, I especially appreciate what you said. God bless you all.


Happy Thanksgiving To All
  
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I pray the Lord blesses all those who seek his face.


Living Through Tribulation
  
The greek word for tribulation is the word, "thlpsis" it means trouble but it also means pressure. When Christ spoke to his disciples and told them that in this world ye shall have tribulation. He was telling them they would have trouble and pressure. Is there any one of us who doesn't get stressed or feel the pressures of this life living in this sin filled world?


Armed Guards At Church
  
I know several pastors who now carry concealed. In speaking with one of them, he stated that he believe it was his duty to protect his flock.

Years ago a young man came into one of our churches and tried to rob the congregation at gun point. One of the members of the church was a young marine who had just returned from duty. He took the gun away from the would be robber and gave him the right hand of fellowship across his chops. The robber looked up from the floor and said to the congregation, "I though yous people were Christians?"


God Or Jesus Miracles
  
47 times the scriptures refer to Christ as the Son of God.
85 times in the new testament Christ is referred to as the Son of man.
If we truly understand John chapter 1, we understand that Christ is God. Also we can see this in examining 1 John 5:7 of the KJV.

For Jesus to be our mediator he has to be both God and man.
1 Timothy 2:5. states that Christ is both and that is the only way he could be the perfect and acceptable sacrifice.


USA Foreign Invasion
  
1Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

At the present time there are 325.7 million people in the U.S. At this point we cannot provide for the people we have here now. Is it the Christian thing to do to bring more people in and place more of a burden on the tax payer to pay for their children's education, health care, etc.???


Abortion Point Of Views
  
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood:

As a Christian I believe that life begins at conception and could care less what Beverly and Tim Lahaye have to say.

I also understand the scriptures to say in Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not murder.

Abortion is murder.

As a Christian I love God, His laws, and His people. What else should we take into consideration?


How Old Is The Earth
  
Hi Joseph,
God created the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th. Genesis states that the evening and the morning were the first day, thus establishing a 24 hour time period for each day during creation.
There are approximately 4000 years between the time of Adam and the time of Christ. If we then add 2000 years to this number since the year is 2018, we arrive at the earth being approximately 6000 years old.
Hope this is helpful.


Finished Work On The Cross
  
Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Having obtained eternal redemption for us - past tense - sounds like Christ finished the work of redemption on the cross.

Kathr, beautiful comments. Amen!!!


Finished Work On The Cross
  
Cluny,

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Christ said he finished something. What do you think he finished?


Letting The Dog Outside
  
Proverbs 12:10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast:


No Sin Before Death
  
Hi Cluny,
We are all, including Mary, saved in the same way. You are correct, it is not by walking down an isle. We are saved by the finished work of Jesus Christ upon the cross. We all, (God's children) have this same salvation in common.

Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.


God Does Not Love Me
  
Hi John, God loves you more than you love him. He gave his only Son to die on the cross for you.
Sometimes the Lord allows bad things to happen to his children to bring them to their knees and grow them as Christians.
Don't you believe that God loves Jesus, but he allowed man to crucify his Son because he knew the outcome would be glorious.
Are you better than Christ that you should not have to suffer in this life?
Lord bless you.


No Sin Before Death
  
If Mary were sinless she would not have said:
Luke 1:46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
Luke 1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Mary needed a saviour just like you and I need a saviour.
Also, it is my opinion that until we are free from this fleshly body we will never reach a point of sinlessness.


Who Will Be Raptured
  
1. The word rapture is not in the scriptures.
2. 1 Cor 15 and 1 Thes 4 are the clearest references to the second coming of Christ when all the dead shall be raised and those of us alive will be changed.
3. The final judgement will be on that day.
4. After the final judgement we shall either be with Christ forever or we will burn in hell for all eternity.


How Old Is The Earth
  
Answer: A little over 6000 years. Next question.
