Will God Save All His Children?

Q.  Is it possible that God will save ALL of His children?  The Bible seems to leave open the subject, because in the end all the tears are wiped from our eyes.  What if He only made the souls that would endure?

Paul’s Letter To The Galatians

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Galatians Study

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Today we begin a study of Paul’s letter to the Galatians which I’ve subtitled “The Case Against Combining Law And Grace.” Scholars are divided as to the date of this letter. Some place it in the late 40’s and others in the early 50’s. Either way it one of Paul’s earliest letters, perhaps even his first, and predated the Council of Jerusalem where the issue of Gentile converts to Christianity was the main agenda item (Acts 15).

Believers Who Don’t Care About Sin?

Q.  When believers choose to live sinful lifestyles (i.e. have an attitude of I do not care whether I sin or not, since I love sin and it is my lifestyle), does that mean they would reject eternal security if their intent is to live a sinful lifestyle? Or does it reveal that they are not truly saved?

Is God Being Fair?

Q.  Every now and then, we hear news about a Muslim or other faith person, who did not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, but then, they had a dream or vision where Jesus appeared to them, and there after they believed in Him. I know that Father God is sovereign and can do as He pleases. But, I also know, that He is Just. Therefore could it be expected, that one person is obliged to live by faith alone and not by what he sees, but another person gets supernatural “help” to believe, through an appearance, or a dream?  Would that be fair to us other mere mortals, who must rely on faith alone, because we have not super naturally seen?

And Such Were Some Of You

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Cor. 6:9-11).

Blasphemy Of The Holy Spirit

Q.  In Matthew 12: 30-32 Jesus is talking to the Jews, explaining a sin that cannot be forgiven. I understand all sins were forgiven at the cross, but in verse 32b he mentions “the age to come”. I assume that age to be the Kingdom Age as being the next age to come for the Jews. Am I correct in this thinking? And if so what does this mean for the Jews?

More On Backsliders

Q.  This is a salvation question.  When we look at salvation in both the Old Testament and New Testament, a person is saved by faith:  In the OT a person’s faith was based on the promised coming redeemer.  In the NT, it is also based on faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Yet in your response to a question on “The Backslidden Believer”, you responded with  “The Old Covenant was a conditional relationship based on obedience and a person who became disobedient was said to have turned away from the Lord.”  Are you saying that those saved in the OT was based on works and not faith – somewhat confused – can you please clarify?
