Re: Covenant Error

Are you looking for the definition according to a Greek lexicon or a place in scripture that says "this is what a covenant is"?

Re: Covenant Error

Hi In2joy, You wrote: tell me what is meant by a covenant of law and a covenant of grace (that is found nowhere in scripture). Seems to me that the scriptures clearly establish that there have been two covenants: Hebrews 8:7 7. For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no ...

Re: Freewill vs. Prevenient Grace

In2joy,
There’s no such thing as unlimited free will
Could you explain in a practical sense what you mean as it relates to the subject of this thread? I think all would agree, for example, that we can not will ourselves to do that which by its nature is impossible.

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi Paidion, You wrote: I have always presumed that the NT writers physically wrote their own writings. At the conclusion of Romans we find that Paul had used an amanuensis: Romans 16:22 I, Tertius, who write this letter, greet you in the Lord. And this at least hints that Paul used an amanuensis to ...

Re: Baptism question 4/29/2020

Hi Darrell, Another thought re the thief on the cross is that he had no opportunity to be baptized into Christ's death as Jesus had yet to die: Romans 6:3-6 New American Standard Bible 3. Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death ? 4...

Re: What should a pastor do? Coronavirus edition

As one who was raised to believe that failure to attend church every time the doors were open was a sin, my instinctive position is with Steve's thoughts. However, the command cited from Hebrews, "Do not neglect the assembling of the saints" is a present active participle in the Greek which speaks o...

Re: Paul and Jesus

Hi steve7150, I think it is certain that Jesus appointed and commissioned the Apostles to be His spokesmen and reveal further truth to disciples, truth revealed to them through the Holy Spirit: John 16:12-15 12. “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13. But when He, t...
