I have a question about something you wrote … the law of double jeopardy is a man made law. Tell me where in the Bible this comes in to play? I realize no one is perfect, but we must strive towards the goal. I don’t want to say yes I sinned Lord, but I accepted you as my savior so that’s null and void.
I have a quick question concerning interpretation of the bible. For example, you read a particular Bible passage and come to one conclusion. Another noted scholar reads the same passage and comes to a completely different conclusion. For amateur Bible students, who are we to believe has the right interpretation of the passage?
I just watched a video that a televangelist sent out to Osama Bin Laden, telling him that he will be praying that Osama rejects Islam and comes to repentance. Are we called upon to pray for the salvation of all people, regardless of how patently obvious it is that particular individuals are instruments of Satan?
My question is, believing that Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins ( I understand that to be the punishment from our sins – correct me if I’m wrong) and that as we accept Him we are new creatures in Christ – then why do we still have this sin nature?
I am very puzzled and troubled by 1 Corinthians 5:5. To me, this seems to contradict eternal security because it seems to state that if this man does not repent, his spirit would not be saved. Is this how you read this verse? Have you done any research on this verse?
What is the criteria for Tribulation Salvation? I mean, now, the salvation is by grace by faith. The Holy Spirit will be taken away. Is the tribulation salvation by grace by works or by works alone, or what?
Q. Let’s say a person fully leans on faith in God thru Jesus Christ, tries not to sin, prays, repents, is baptized, and reliant on Holy Spirit for daily life … also knowing that this life can change at any time according to the end times and God’s will. Yet this person is not sure as to the mechanics or theology surrounding the “rapture”. Will such persons who are following Jesus, still be taken if indeed the rapture is the “reward” for being a believer?
Every so often I come across a negative statement about Free Masonry. I have a very close Christian friend who is also a Speculative Mason. What is it about the Masons that causes (Religious?) people to be suspicious? hateful? distrustful? Am I reading too much into those negative comments?
We have all been created the same – we all get the same chance to get saved – I wonder why some say yes to Jesus, and are able to see them selves as sinners in the need for his salvation – and others do not see this, and instead choose the world, and thereby eternity in hell – why this difference?
In response to ‘A Losing Strategy’, I was wondering why you think God allows Satan to persecute and afflict believers? I have read somewhere that the devil has to ask God’s permission to attack a believer , so why would God grant it?
