History of Salvation & Vengeance

The other day I was challenged to show that God saves and comforts His people by destroying His enemies. The person showed some familiarity with , but apparently wasn’t aware of the impact of . The following is my response to him. This list is by no means exhaustive. What I mean to show here is […] […]

Who is the “God of this age”?

In , who is the “god of this age”? And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. […] […]

Common Ground on Free Will and Predestination

On the question of Free Will vs Predestination, some people would say that people who believe in Free Will do not agree with those of us who believe in Predestination. Actually, we do agree on one point: we both agree that they have been predestined to think they have Free Will. […]

Unity, Diversity and Charity

When it comes to differences of faith, we often repeat the saying “In essentials, Unity. In non-essentials, Diversity. In all things, Charity.” While this is a necessary process, we have to first determine who gets to decide what is essential and what is not? What criteria do they use?

Questions

Just a few questions that have bounced off my head at one time or another. I’ve figured out some Biblical answers to many of them, but figured I’d post them here in case you get insomnia. Some of the questions are whimsical, and suitable for all. However, some of the questions have some pretty severe […] […]

Passages of Fury

The other day I ran into a guy that corrected me when I happened to say that God calls His people to rejoice when He destroyed their enemies. He: “That’s not right!!! We’re to do all things through love and patience and goodness!” Me: “Did God tell His people to rejoice when He destroyed their enemies?” He: “… […] […]

Why Debating is a Biblical Mandate

IMHO, is the 2nd most important chapter in the book thus far. It gives us a brief overview of the first great debate for the people of “The Way”. At issue: was circumcision a requirement for salvation (v5)? There are several parts about The Great Debate (or “The Jerusalem Council” as it’s more commonly […] […]
