Re: Predestination

Good word study. I was listening to another message by Zac Poonen on Jude where he was talking about how Jude, paraphrase, "was making effort/trying to write to the church about their common salvation, maybe like a book like Romans" "when a more important/urgent need came up to encourage them to ear...

Predestination

"God does not predestine people to heaven or hell. God predestines people to be holy. To be blameless. To be conformed to the image of Christ.

Re: Hold to repentance

Another question If spirit soul and body are just a spiritual representation of the whole entity of the person, why does Jesus not say "I tell you fear him who is able to destroy the body and soul and spirit in gehenna" Another verse may tell the reason Young's Literal Translation And the dust retur...

Re: Hold to repentance

The soul also has interplay with the flesh. And the Spirit interplay with the soul.
