• Question Regarding Adam (Pre-Fall)?

    The Bible tells us that Adam literally walked with God (an awesome reality that we can look forward to when all things are made new someday). My question is (and this is going to breed many opinions, no doubt): Do you think God walked with Adam and Eve in the form of Christ (pre-incarnate)? In other words....in human form and likeness?

  • Why do some hold to the lie that there "are no moral absolutes"?

    Morality has a measuring rod: The LORD.......it begins and ends with Him. We do NOT create our own morality - God's laws are what govern us. So why do some adhere to the lie that morality is based on anything else other than God?

My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.” Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.” He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said. He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment." Question: We know that salvation was for the Jew first....and then the Gentile (Romans 1). Does this episode in the verses above tell us that perhaps.......salvation was open to all who had faith in Christ even before the gospel was presented to the Gentile (the rest of us)? Look forward to your thoughts on this, my fellow Christian believers.....thanks

Here is the question I have today: Do you consider this act (the making of the garments for them) to be God's very first act of redemption towards us (sinful man)? Adam and Eve felt shame because of their nakedness and after their eyes were opened.....so God made a "covering" for their shame, in reality. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks....and be blessed in Him today....I look forward to your Godly wisdom and input.

Alot of people have trouble with the "L" in the acrostic "TULIP" - which is used to describe Calvinism (the L represents "Limited Atonement). My question today doesn't deal with limited atonement, however. It deals with regeneration. Question: I firmly believe that one must be regenerated by the Holy Spirit of God before faith can be a factor. In other words: We don't have the capacity to have faith without first being enabled to believe. So which school of thought do you believe and why? Thanks, fellow believers.

With that aside, here is my question for you: At what point in human history did folks suddenly begin to buy into the lie of evolution?

    Here are the glorious verses: “For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.” In Christ alone we are made pure and cleansed from sin. This of course, doesn’t mean that we wont fall short in our daily lives (as we are still in the flesh until we die). This is made perfectly clear in Romans chapter 7 where even Paul admits his struggle to do what is right almost daily. So here is my question: Do you think that when we have finally reached our permanent home in heaven, that we will have any recollection of the fact of what we once were (sinners living in imperfection)? I have every reason to believe that we will not remember anything bad, evil, or sinful. Your input, believers. Thanks…..and be blessed in Him today.

If you've read this parable, then you know the basic gist of the story: To whom much is given, much is required....and it's not a good idea to bury our God-given talents away and not do anything with them. If I'm not mistaken, the word 'talents' here can mean not only our abilities, but also money. So with that said, here's my question: If you know that you know that you have a God-given talent (in this case, an actual talent and not money) but yet.....all doors allowing you to utilize that talent seem to close on you.......where do you go from there? Do we keep pressing forward and continue to "knock on doors" so to speak....or do we give up and simply "bloom where we're planted" and let God's will for our lives come to us instead? Your sincere answers are more than welcome, fellow believers. Thanks -Primo

    Here is the verse: “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” Now obviously it’s not a good idea to talk about one verse without mentioning the others around it and throughout the Bible. This is where Jesus referred to Himself as the bread of life. This was also right after he fed the 5,000 (or as I like to say, fed the 15,000 – women and children included). Let me preface this question by saying that I lean heavily on the side of reformed theology (Calvinism, Martin Luther….etc) and am a firm believer in Total depravity (or as RC Sproul calls it: Radical corruption). The acronym TULIP is always on my brain when it comes to how I view the Scriptures and the like. Here is my question today: Do you believe according to the Scriptures that mankind in and of himself is capable of coming to Christ on his own? (My answer – No. We are sinners incapable of knowing God unless our eyes are opened by the Spirit and we are drawn in by God). I answered my own question here but would love to hear yours and your reasoning - especially if you disagree with me. I still love you by the way - even if we disagree.

    Here are the verses (Matthew 5:33-37) “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” An oath was a binding and a very serious thing in Old Testament times. Your word of mouth was just as good as a signed contract is supposed to be today. So here are my questions for us today. 1) At face value here, is the Lord against the taking or giving of an oath? 2) Is a solemn oath the same as a promise is today (spoken, not written)? 3) Under the Law, what was the punishment for breaking an oath? Thanks in advance for your answers. Be blessed in Him today.
