Where does stupid start?

Where in the Bible does it say, "God helps those who help themselves"? Is it possible that many ideas we hold about God came from similar idiocies? Please read 1 Peter 5:6-7 Vs. 6 "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that...

The rise and fall of Christianity?

  I would like to begin by first expressing how difficult this post is for me, knowing how much grief will take place as this truth begins to set in. The importance and impact of this forum will be tremendous, for all I have said have led to...

Do not pray for me...

Stevehayes made an interesting demand of me today. He said, "Do not pray for me." I said, "I pray for you every day and will continue praying for you every day for as long as I can remember you. If you don't believe in the power of prayer why does it...

Are sins for this life only?

Are sins temporal only? I don't believe that sins of the damned will be finished in this life; rather, it is my understanding that Hell will be full of those gnashing their teeth at God. In other words, even in Hell the damned will curse God and devoid...

James outside of the Bible

Outside of the Bible there is a little that we know about James the brother of Jesus and author of the Epistle which bears his name. "Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrim of judges, and brought...

God's Law vs. Civil Law

You shall have no other gods before me.   You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow...

In Garasene, how many men came out to meet Jesus?

The man known as Jesus.

 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of...

Chance, Lord of the Evolutionary Bible

 Despite all the claims of a number of bloggers on this site that evolution is now fact and there are no problems, yes there are serious conflicts within the scientific community. Here is a list of discrepancies with the Theory of Evolution:  Life...

Get out of jail free card?

Who is your “guardian”? What “justified” you? Please read Galatians 3:23-25 Vs. 23 “Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our...

Christs Law is OLD Law + NEW Law; Not no Law!

  The Great Commandment: The Law Iniquity tells you NOT to follow!   When our Lord Christ Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, we got the answer of a mixture between OLD LAW and NEW LAW.   "Thou shalt love thy God with all...

The New Testament is the best attested ancient work

Monophysitism

Monophysitism is one of the oldest heresies in the Christian church which teaches that Jesus only had one nature and that that nature was divine.  Monophysitism was the heresy of choice amongst most of the gnostics in history which is in direct...

Plus one, minus one

Let us not play the plus one, minus game.  It is insulting, childish, and counterproductive. "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things."  1...

Is The Holy Spirit A Voice You Think Is In Your Head ?

That's far from being the book------Isaiah 64:6. That's far from being the book----Isaiah 55:8-9. That's far from being the book---Matthew 4:4. That's far from being the book----Luke 4:4.   Carnal thoughts don't care about water baptism...

Who are you?????
