It's destroyed, as God, through the text, says.
I guess it boils down to what you believe 'destroyed' to mean.
Me, I dk. :o
Does one 'cease to exist' after being destroyed by God? :confused:
Or, does one exist in a hypostatic state of destruction forever and ever? :confused:
On a side note, notice that the Spirit within man is not said to be destroyed in hell?
While I believe man is created a triune being, I do not believe he is a triune being apart from the Spirit of God.
When we die, the Spirit returns to God, Who gave it, as God, through the Scripture, clearly...
Non-Denom are usually 'good', as far as 'churches' are concerned.
I myself, am anti-churched. I do not believe in born again believers being subjected to a man on a pulpit while the sheep sit there and listen. If 'church' were different, more interactive, where every member of the...
What is mainstream Christianity?
Was it not Jesus Who said, Wide be the road to destruction, and narrow to road to Everlasting Life? [paraphrased]
Perhaps. perhaps not.
I could care less, but for your ponderance. ;)
The studies of non-dispensationalism.
There are many ideologies, I could pick and chose one or two from probably every denomination, including the RCC and Eastern Orthodox religions (who say they are not a denomination). I find I have most in common with the Methodist denomination.
I have studied Orthodoxy, Roman Catholisism...
I'm in Christ.
A Non-Denominational Christian. One who holds to naught but God in Christ.
Constantly growing in Grace, I neither know it all, nor feign to.
But I deign to speak, rather, what I know.
That is all.
Hi Kyrel, how ya been?
Loong time no see huh?
Just because man has a Spirit, dun mean it's his..
Case in point;
1 Thes 5:19
Quench not the Spirit.
Shows us what is of God, and what of man. Divides between the earthly and the Heavenly, the natural and the Spiritual.
I needed Jesus because I had become a slave to sin by succumbing to temptation through my own lusts, NOT the lusts of my forefathers, or I would have failed to take personal responsability for my own sins.
Also, Jesus came as one of us, fully man.
You are aware that this Synod was overseen...
Perfect is most often translated as mature by most theologians, what makes you consider perfection on par with sinlessness?
Was Jesus only sinless when He rose?
What curse? For, as far as Scripture informs us, God cursed the ground because of Adam, blessed of God.
Jesus was born...
So? What does God, the Spirit, Who wrote the Bible through Holy men as moved by that same Spirit, say on the matter?
Our Father.. OUR Father.. Each and every man woman and child has One Heavenly Father Who created them, individually, to work corporately as one unit, guided by the One True...
Hi Lloren, I see RyanB has not been online in some time.
I would like to respond to one of your posts, if it's okay. :)
Sinning, which leads to death.
He saved us, and is saving us and will save us from the law of sin and death which works in our members to bear fruit for death, by the...
In order for this to remain a peacful place for the Body of Christ to gather, without discrimination, I believe two things are in order.
1) No denominational theology aught to be espoused on these boards, such as Calvinism and Arminianism, ect.. Or you WILL have opposing views.
Evil does not 'exist' per say, as it is not an entity. Evil is an action with malicious intent, every bit as much as Love is an action with benevolent intent. When it is said men commit evil acts, they are deemed evil for not following God, who is good :)
God created man in His image, as moral...
