The church is actually the body of believers, not a building. If you had said you were going to church to an early Christian they would not understand what you were saying. The church is who we are not where we go. Ephesians 1:22–23, Eph. 2:21-22 Jesus did not die for a building, did He? Acts 20:28 Jesus said where two or three gather … Read the whole post “What or Who is the Church?”
A couple of friends of mine have gotten caught up in various so-called modern-day prophets. I will cover just one of them in this post. Do not get me wrong. I believe in the gifts of the Spirit of God. At the same time, I form the basis for my approach on 1 Corinthians 4:6.

In Luke 9:49-50 we are taught a lesson of great importance in just two verses.
Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.” “Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”
We have previously discussed that the true church of Jesus … Read the whole post “Jesus said: Do not stop him”
I am beginning to think that the subject of heaven and hell should first be discussed before engaging in the subject of predestination. The reason I bring the subject of heaven and hell up is that predestination has to do with those two primary destinations.
For now, suffice it to say that hell is not one single level according to Jesus. Jesus said in … Read the whole post “RC Views On Predestination – Dr. Brant Pitre”
Recently, my friend and brother, Mac sent two links to YouTube on the Roman Catholic view of Predestination. I will create two posts, one for each video. My comments are in the accordion below the video. At the onset, it is worth mentioning while I disagree with some of Dr. Bergsma’s approaches I believe we would be good friends if we knew one another.
Recently in relation to the post on The Problem Of Evil a friend texted two questions. They were “Is evil eternal?” and “Is evil necessary?”. This post will deal with the first question.
The two words we are dealing with are of course, eternal and evil and both must be defined. For now, we can simply define evil as anything that opposes the perfect nature … Read the whole post “Is Evil Eternal?”
All religions that believe in a creator god are faced with the basic question, “If a god or God created us then why did he allow evil?” Do Christians have an answer? In addition, for those who believe God is all-powerful, all-knowing, always present, and is love itself why did He allow or even ordain evil?
Theologians have tried to answer these questions in many … Read the whole post “The Problem of Evil”
This is a confession of my own sin. For some time I have been convicted and corrected by the Holy Spirit (John 16:8) in relation to the sin of denominationalism (John 17:20-22). In 1987 I became a believer in Jesus Christ as my savior. Listening carefully to men who called themselves preachers, pastors, teachers et cetera was educational. They all quoted the Bible and emphasized … Read the whole post “The Unity of the Church”
I rarely comment on books like Revelation. It is not for reasons of controversy over if Revelation should be included in scripture. It is because of the various views that seem to cause unending debate. I am sure that is fun for some but it is not my cup of tea.
If you take a futurist view (as compared to a preterist view) there is … Read the whole post “Buy or Sell – Canada in the news”
The views and opinions expressed here are just that. You will make up your own mind. Rom 14:12
People who love the Lord have various views in relation to the term free will. We agree that we make choices. I also agree that we have something called a “sense of agency”. Sense of agency refers to the feeling of control over actions and their consequences.… Read the whole post “Free Will”
