I was watching a pastor on a satellite channel, and he states there was a creation on earth before Genesis. He also stated that the serpent seduced Eve, and became the father of Cain. This just doesn’t pass the smell test to me. Where did this come from?
I have a co-worker who is a Jehovah Witness. He states they believe that Jesus is the arkangel Michael. He questioned that if Jesus was God, why did he pray to himself. And he also referenced that when the disciples asked when he would come again, he said only the Father knows the time and hour of his return. Could you help me in showing him, with scriptural evidence, that Jesus was God with us?
I’ve gotten a raft of comments on my comparison of John 20:22 with Acts 2:1-4 in my answer to a recent question. Some were more diplomatic than others in suggesting my understanding of these verses leaves something to be desired.
For some time now, I’ve been puzzled about the time between the resurrection and the ascension—wondering why the Lord lingered during those 40 days. It certainly wasn’t to complete His mission. By all accounts, He had already accomplished everything He came to do.
The doctrine of eternal security, or OSAS (once saved always saved) is one of the most hotly debated topics in all of Christianity. Did the Lord’s death really pay for all the sins of our life, thereby guaranteeing a place in Heaven for all born again believers?
Or, are we responsible for the sins we commit after we become born again, running the risk that our post salvation behavior can cause God to rescind his promise to save us?
And if God will not rescind His promise, can we walk away from our relationship with Him and effectively forfeit our salvation?
You’ll find the answers to these and other questions in this book, as well as Biblical answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about OSAS.
This study is for believers and non-believers alike. It describes three things in detail. What the Lord has done for us in the past, what He’s doing now, and what He’s preparing to do in the future. And it’s all free for the asking, no matter who we are or where we’ve come from. Feel free to down load this and share it with friends and family.
