I believe you are stating that someone who accepts the gift of salvation, but has the additional belief that if they were to stray away from Him, they could lose their salvation, this particular person would not truly be saved at all. Is this what you believe?
I heard a sermon last night based on the premise that mankind’s soul is not immortal (that we were created immortal but by choosing to sin, we died and could only be resurrected by God thru Jesus). I would appreciate your understanding of this concept.
I read “Israel at 60. What’s Next?” and you quoted Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. I was wondering in your opinion what do you think will happen first? I wanted to also know when will the peace that the Apostle Paul spoke of in I Thessalonians 5:3 come about? What event will bring this on?
Does the anti-Christ have to be Jewish or of Jewish decent? Or or just of middle eastern decent? I know this has been a major topic of discussion, but I’m unable to locate the info I’m looking for that suggests that he need not be Jewish.
Q. Without mentioning any names, some famous people who claim to be Christians have said they believe Jesus died for their sins but do not believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Are these people saved?
You wrote recently in Ask a Bible Teacher: “Over the years my opinion on the timing of the Rapture has gotten earlier in the End Times Scenario, not later.” Would you please expand on the last sentence with details of things that have caused you to revise your thinking about when the Rapture is likely?
When I was young I was told never to believe in ghosts. When I got a little older I noticed strange things happening in our old house. I was always told these things were because the house was old. So being told I was silly I brushed it off. My brother admitted that he had always had this feeling that someone was watching.
I am confused about the OSAS answer you gave to the recent question posted about that. I always thought that if a person does not experience the conviction of the Holy Spirit about their ongoing sins after saying the prayer that maybe they said it flippantly and did not really mean it.
I have heard it said that when the original Passover happened, the Jewish people actually made a cross in blood on their door for the angel to “pass over” their house to avoid death. If this was the case, wouldn’t this highly symbolic act be easily read today by the Jewish people?
You listed four things that you believe can prevent believers from being delivered from their afflictions, putting a very fine point on the issue. I know I cannot fully understand what’s going on inside me, so it would seem that I am doomed to a life of (mostly) unanswered prayer.
