  1. I have seen the church of Christ use Hebrews 6:4-6 to support their doctrine that people can lose their salvation. I think when we don’t rightly divide we find ourselves coming up with some weird stuff.
  2. I agree with what you said, that they were sort of put on hold until they heard the Gospel of the Grace of God from Jesus after he was crucified. The dead O.T. Saints could not have went to heaven yet, (John 3:13). Is 1 Peter 4:6 what your talking about? if so the I agree. The whole point that I was trying get to, was, yes OT saints were saved by faith, but the object of their faith had not been fully revealed to them, since the Gospel of the Grace of God did not come until Paul. And OT saints in some sense had to combine works to show their faith, they had to believe God, but also “
  3. While I would not consider myself a fan or follower of John Macarthur, he does present an interesting explanation for this in his book "The Inerrant Word" In the introduction on Page 14. In a brief summary he attributes the modernization of the church to a seeker sensitive "market-driven" church strategy that goes soft on sin in order to draw large crowds. A large crowd of course in this view being the sign of success.
  4. I think the reason for the large number of Southern Baptist’s becoming masons is in line with what you see in the cults of today, there is just enough truth sprinkled in to convince a lukewarm Christian that it’s ok. The main story of Freemasonry, the legend of Hiram Abiff, comes from 1 Kings 7:13, verse 14 is where the “widows son” comes from, this is basically the end of the truth in the story. The rest of masonry relies on a ritual drama where Hiram of Tyre, (not King Hiram) is killed and resurrected to eternal life which sounds dangerously close to Christ. I think any Christian should be a
  5. I believe Joseph Smith was a Mason, and was influenced strongly by Masonic ceremonies in creating the “Temple Initiation” in the LDS church. There are hidden camera videos of these initiations on YouTube and they Certainly resemble masonry. There is also a video from a series giving the LDS stance on many topics, one of which is freemasonry, where the church takes the stance that it is “completely compatible with the LDS church, since they believe their is truth everywhere”. I considered freemasonry for many years before I was saved. A mason is always on a quest for “more light”. Wha
  6. Thank you, I will look over some of the verses you have shared.
  7. Which in the past has been? Are you saying you receive extra-biblical revelation from God?
  8. Do you tell people that people in the Old Testament were saved by having faith in the messiah to come?
  9. Was Abraham justified by his faith in the Christ to come? Or His faith in the Father to fulfill the promises He had given to Abraham, such as being a father of many nations?and did he show his faith by his willingness to offer Isaac in sacrifice? I see the resemblance of God giving His son for sacrifice now, but did Abraham see that is what I am asking. I was asking does anyone “on here” believe that.
  10. I think most pre-trib, pre-mil people don’t think that people professing to be post-trib are actually post trib at all, I think they would be considered “mid-trib” if they’re using the post trib pre wrath phrase.
  11. This is in the second chapter of Dispensational Truth by Clarence Larkin, Page 5.
  12. I have recently heard from many people that "People were saved by looking forward to the cross before and looking back at it after". I have also noticed that the majority of people who have said this were Calvinists. Since the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Christ was obviously not the focus of Abraham's Faith in Romans 4, how do you construct a view of the Bible without considering the dispensation of the scripture you are reading? In other words, what scripture do people use to defend this view of looking forward to the cross? I understand that the Bible starts speaking of a Messiah to c
  13. I am happy to be here with you all. I am an Independent Fundamental Baptist from Texas. I am currently attending an Independent Baptist Bible College. I am King James Only, Dispensational, and not a Calvinist. I look forward to learning from some of the older and more seasoned members on the site. Thanks, DC
  14. Back to the original non-sense and guessing dates.......Jesus says in Mark 13 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. And then more to the point.. in Acts 1 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own
  15. I usually reply with 2 Timothy 15-26, especially verse 23
  16. Could the word chosen in Ephesians 1:4 not mean that God had chosen to redeem man, through the Cross, rather than a certain group of people who had no say? I can read Ephesians 1:4-6 and Romans 9:22-24 and not see any Calvinism or "election" at all. God's plan was already established before the foundation of the world. (1 Peter 1:19-20)(Revelation 13:8) Also, Galatians 4:3-7 doesn't seem to mention "The Elect" but rather those under the law. Galatians 1:4 also never mentions the elect. God knew His plan of salvation before He made the world. He Predestinated those who would accept Him (John 1:
