Theology / Re: Baptismal Regeneration?
« Last post by ZeroCool on Today at 07:26:41 AM »
I agree with deaconboy. Water is water and cannot cleanse anyone from sin. People who believe that are misunderstanding the baptism the Bible speaks of in regeneration. The only washing that can take away sin is from the Spirit. If water could do that it would a salvation by our work of washing in water.

Titus 3:5-7
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Theology / Re: The Doctrine of the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ
« Last post by bloodstone on Today at 04:38:24 AM »
The Modernist Denial of the Virgin Birth
Modernist theologians feel that the doctrine of the virgin birth is not important; they conclude that the doctrine of the virgin birth is a theologoumenon, i.e., a story reflecting the faith of the early church in its attempt to reinforce its Christological myths. Most treacherous are those Modernists who claim to hold the doctrine of the virgin birth, though they actually deny it by redefining the term as a reference to the incarnation, with no affirmation of the biological virginity of Mary. Contrary to the liberals' condescending dismissal of the doctrine, we reaffirm the importance of the doctrine and its integral position in a Biblically-based systematic theology (see EDT, 1143-45).

Moreover, in addition to all these great answers, and the Hebrew word almah pertaining to a virgin, the Greek word parthenos used in Matthew confirms it should be virgin.

Isaiah 7:14
"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."

On top of all this, it says that the Lord (not man) would give a sign, and this language points to a miraculous sign from God. Not just a sign that wasn't miraculous. A woman conceiving and naming the child Immanuel is not a sign. A virgin doing that is the only way this could be a sign from God.

So I agree that some people are attempting to play word games to cast doubt on Jesus Christ, and no Christian should fall for these tricks by the scholars or experts in Old Hebrew. The word means virgin.

Apologetics / Re: What Does Hanukkah or Chanukah Commemorate
« Last post by Rich Aikers on December 09, 2018, 10:24:27 AM »
The feast was kept in honor of the renovation and purification of the temple in the year B.C. 164, after it had been desecrated by the Syrians under Antiochus Epiphanes (1 Macc. 1:20-60; 4:36-59; 2 Macc. 10:1-8; Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews, 12.6.6,7).

Says who?  Oh yes, I see your referencing the books of Josephus annd Macebees. These are two really un-authoritative books for the true Christians. See this is a point that you and the vaunted illuminati pedantics who are looking to the historians for truth always seem to miss about us. Our authority is the bible.

As per your proof, since when did the book of Maccebees and the book of Josephus become authoritative to Christians? These great theologians and Jewish historians you adore became authorities to you because you forgot the principles of Sola Scriptura. Unfortunately, a lot of otherwise good Christians have surrendered to this transgression also. Christian views, beliefs, ideas and practices should be founded upon scripture alone, not on secular historical writings that attempt to define scripture.

George, you lack the understanding of our principle that scripture alone is the authority of church and practice. Not the Jewish historians, not men, not professors, not commentaries, and certainly not Calvanist, Baptist, Evangelical and Dispensational authors. The Bible defines the Bible. So it alone defines the Feast of Dedication, not Josephus. It alone defines Israel. It alone defines the Abomination of Desolation. It alone defines the Holy Temple, Jerusalem and the Millennial reign. It alone defines who are Jews. And it alone defines what anti-semitism or anti-Jewish is.

Tony Warren and company already understands that, you may never understand that. But we hope you will.

So once again this smacks of amillennial anti-semitism when you won't even believe history when Jewish people write it. You people did the same thing with the Jewish historian Josephus. You are always attacking Jewish sources of history. .
I only believe the Jews who wrote under the inspiration of God, all others I judge by holy men of God who were moved by the Holy Ghost, who NEVER inserted their own private thoughts into the word of God. All historians are biased in favor of their own personal agendas.

You need to stop that because judgment awaits those who attack Israel
I agree if you are speaking of a TRUE Israelite, one that is born of the Spirit of God~Romans 2:28,29....... The true children of Abraham to whom were the promises of eternal life given to according to God's faithfulness secured by two immutable acts of God....his own promises and oath.

no one is going to listen to your opinions over the great Jewish historians, the great Christian theologians or the great commentaries. I don't buy your arguments for one bit.

Oh Brother! I hate to break it to you "mr. Know it all." 

Those who can do, those who can't teach - those who can't do or teach complain about those who can.

Proverb 11:12 "He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace."

Proverb 17:28"Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."

Eschatology / Re: Is gradual corruption of King James Bible upon us?

Hi Tony,
thank you very much for setting the matter straight with your thorough answer.
I repent of giving an ear to the present-day deceptions.

My warmest regards.

Jussi

Don't feel bad Jussi, I fell for this same hoax last year. It does appear to be true upon first reading about it and looking at my bible and reading the false text as true. The devil is always at work. I guess that is why we have to be vigilant.

In closing, this Mandella Effect is a well orchestrated hoax that didn't even start out about the KJV of the Bible. The KJV of the Bible no doubt became a target simply to make Christians or KJV Bible avocates seem foolish.


Yup!
