Have a HUGE problem to solve when it comes to the Apostle and leader of the Church Peter.
1- he denied Jesus 3 times
2- he ran from those who said he knew Jesus denying his relationship with Jesus
3- he lived a hypocritical life with the Jews and Gentiles after Pentecost
4- Paul confronts him to his face for being a hypocrite
5- Peter was a stumbling block for the weaker brother Barnabas and caused him to fall into sin as a hypocrite
6- Peter forced the gentiles with him to participate in his hypocrisy
See Galatians 2 for the details.
So according to their heretical teaching the Apostle Peter was not saved, lost his salvation and if he died was going to hell before Paul confronted Him with his sin.
hope this helps !!!
The book of mormon is said to be "another testament of Jesus Christ".
Now, I have not finished reading through the book of mormon so I do not have all of the information in it; but I have this question:
In Hebrews 9 it is written,
Heb 9:16, For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
Heb 9:17, For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
My question is, who died to produce this third testament of Jesus Christ...

We will have this thing kicked by next Christmas.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
All your words are true;
all your righteous laws are eternal.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.
And the next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy, and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming. 46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; since you...
No, we're NOT in the Tribulation / Yes, we ARE in the Tribulation, -- how do we tell?
- Some assert that WE NEED a Rebuild Temple / Some assert WE ARE the Temple
- Some assert the Rev. 13 Beast is not here / Some assert the Rev. 13 Beast has been here since 1950
- Some assert ... and the list goes on ...
But if a person simply considered what CONSTITUTES "tribulation", it might boil down to UNCERTAINTY and CONFUSION as requisites. And if so, using the LEAST reliable PERCEPTIONS, could we at least agree as to SOME INDICATORS, like maybe:
- Defund the Police
- Shut down your business Constitutional right to Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness
- Force a person who has no sign of ILLNESS to wear a...
The question is not "Can a Christian cease from sin". The questions that needs to be asked are:
Can God actually keep us from falling?
Is our shield of faith actually promised to quench all the arrows of the enemy?
Have we only been forgiven but delivered from the power of darkness itself?
Is there a way for God to actually cause us to obey Him?
We have some explaining to do. God has promised to not allow us to be tempted above our ability to resist. As a matter of fact, He also assured us that in every single temptation. (note: temptation is not sin), He would make a way of escape so that we would not give in to it.
In answer to your question posed, of course we can sin. But have we availed ourselves to the promises...
The correct New Testament idea/definition of Legalism is : anything that a person (believer or non-believer) has MENTALLY substituted for God's Grace as their self righteous attempt to accomplish what only God's Grace can offer/achieve as a Free Gift.
Simply stated : Its whatever you think you have to DO to keep yourself in God's Grace, that has now replaced the Cross of Christ.
Even more simply stated : It's you trying to keep yourself saved, because you no longer have complete trust in Jesus alone, to get you into heaven.
And again.: Its your list of do's and don't do's that you are trying to execute as a lifestyle that you now BELIEVE are what God wants from you so that you can end up in Heaven.
An example would be a...
More than 400 Republican voters in Pennsylvania say they requested mail-in ballots and returned them to vote, but the state absentee voting data say the ballots weren’t returned, according to a fraud detection team that contacted the voters.
And more than 500 voters said they received mail-in ballots despite not requesting them, according to the team.
The team was put together by Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign. The team analyzed the data and set up a call center to verify election inconsistencies in several states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona, where the Trump campaign is contesting the results.
Of the “many thousands” called,...
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The Lord Jesus Christ will sit on the throne of David in the kingdom on earth.
Psalm 132:11 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
This Psalm is saying that the fruit of David's body will sit on David's throne.
