|41||Can a woman be a pastor of a church?||NT general||justme||239141|
|kburt: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. Many
liberal denominations have woman pastors.
Biblically my belief is no. Often women are forced into positions
because men are not there or men won't face up to
the responsibility God gives then.
My advice is go very prayerfully on this, or anything
else in choosing the right man for a pastor.
|42||life on other planets||Genesis||justme||238835|
|CCM: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum.
In Genesis, Moses the writer says nothing but that God made the Universe. There is not even a hint of life anywhere else but Earth. The plan of Salvation is dependent upon Jesus and His death and resurrection
|43||being a drunk is a sin of the flesh as||Luke 4:18||justme||238695|
|Alcoholism is a sin of the flesh, and does cause diseases that can and does cause a multitude of physical, mental, marital, and spiritual problems. The untold misery children and families that have suffered over the centuries of time is truly unbelievable. Christ alone can forgive and heal any sin if we only will repent and surrender to Jesus Christ, there is always hope for the lost.
|44||like to study the bible and write notes||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238694|
|Godsglory: Welcome to The Study Bible Forum. I have a suggestion for you. Two really Good Study Bible's I use are the NASB LIFE APPLICATION BIBLE and the Zondervan NASB STUDY BIBLE. Both have really excellent study notes. Both Bible are made in other versions as well, and make a worthwhile investment in your study of the Scriptures.
Blessings and Merry Christmas.
|45||Did Adam and Eve have a daughter?||Genesis||justme||238693|
|Sir Arthur: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. In order for Cain to have children, there had to be females, and Adam and eve had to have female children to populate the Earth, which was the command of GOD.
Blessings and Merry Christmas.
|46||Who rules the world?||2 Corinthians||justme||238496|
|Cwinn: 2 Corinthians 4:1-4 Satan is the god of this world, who blindsbthe minds of unbelievers. There are many religions that denounce Jesus Christ as the only Son of God, who saves us from Hell for eternity.|
|47||Is there hope for dead loved ones ?||John||justme||238494|
|Cwinn: John 3:16 Unless a person Bleieves in Jesus Christ as the ONLY SON of GOD, who died and paid the price for our sins, and raised from the dead to save us, and we surrender and repent of our sins, abd followes Jesus Christ, there is no hope and they will spend eternity in hell.
Have you believed in Jesus Christ and surrendered to Him, repented of your sins? We hate to see loved ones die without Jesus Christ, but it is a personal choice, and the LORD will honnor our choice.
|48||Is a marriage legal without a license?||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238425|
|ajt: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. First and foremost, it's illegal. That's just the same as saying words between each of the couple. I would call that just living together, and I believe the Bible supports my opinion. What is even more serious is any pastor that would knowingly do such a thing, without the papers to send to the state. The pastor would have violated his responsibility to obey the laws of the land, but also not obeying that we should be a witness by rendering to the government obedience to the laws.
In the United States there is a wide spread beliefe that living together lets you know if you are best for each other, false. Many children are now born to unmarried woman, who wind up alone to raise children with no support. The "mr. Right" turned out to be wrong. When living together happend several times to the woman it does'nt take long before her and the children are in serious condition and the children have fewer chances to make a life above poverty.
Real men honnor women and respect then, they don't just use women and then leave. God hates divorce, but even perha's more is those who use His Holy marriage union to become reacreational activity for wandering men and women.
|49||what does the bible say about by racial||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238228|
|We know Moses had a racially mixed marraige.
Today racially mixed marriages are more acceptable than in decades past. There will forever be people who have recail hatered. Even in christians there are people with bias. Jesus gave us the command to love no matter what the race, male or female, or anything that divides us.
A admireable radio, TV speaker ends his talk with "Now go serve your King." I love that.
|50||are there apostles and prophets today||NT general||justme||238227|
|Apsottles had to be a person witness to Jesus Christ and His ministry. Paul was personally anointed by those who had direct contact with Jesus and Paul spent three years being taught by the Holy Spirit. A Prophet that for saw the furture and preditcte Scripture was ended with Paul.
Today there are so-called prophets and apostles, most generally those who accept experiences over Scripture.
Revelation 22:19 is very clear about adding and taking away from the Word of God. Sadly too often man wants to elevate himself to high positions that were only for those who served at a specific place, and time in God's history.
I see to many want the title of Rev. or Dr. I personally an content by Jesus calling me His child, or friend. I believe calling my Pastor "Pastor" No one is really reverend. Seeking a title brings a huge responsibility, and I surely do not deserve anything more than "servant".
|51||Is NASB study bible dispensational?||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238203|
|tgwin: Every Study Bible I have read has some slant, depending on the group of study note writters who wrote the notes. The NIV study BIble in Genesis 1 stuck in some notes that sure allow for Theolistic Eveloution. one example of bias.
All Study Bible have a bias. I have my main Bibles that I use is just pure Scripture and verse reference's. I use word search materials to learn for myself, verse by verse. The study Bibles I do use are conserative, but I look for study Bibles that mainly have to do with historical back ground material. The only exception is the Life Application Study Bible. If you have a leaning to a specfic theological point of understanding then ask your Bible book store for that. Also CBD is a great help on this.
Perhaps a study of the Millennium would help you come to your own understanding. One vert excllent book is THE MEANING OF THE MILLENNIUM FOUR VIEWS EDITED BY ROBERT G. CLOUSE. Inter Varsity Press.
Make up your own mind not what you have been taught. Darby who really started Dispensational Theology, was just a man who has some questions of his own in his life. the Bible is able to be understood by the common christian, we do not have to take everything that someone has said hookline and sinker.
Is the End of Times the most important thing for Christians? Or is it to be a Follower and a witness to share Christ with others? Any church that wants a huge full church, spends lots of time on end of times book of Reveloution.
I personally have come to my own conclusion that Jesus Christ and FOLLOWING HIM and obeying is by far more worth my study.
|52||once sasved always saved?||Luke 23:43||justme||238202|
|Michale123: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. Often what is ment by this statement is how little can I do and still be assured I will make it to heaven, or how much sin can I keep doing and still be saved. Both statements are very dangerious.
Believers who are seeking to OBEY and FOLLOW don'y even ask such a question. When we FOLLOW Jesus we have ASSURANCE. Christ Jesus gives us peace and love that fills the void that makes us wonder is once we are saved are we always saved.
It is ture this has been debated over the hundred of years, but the HONEST truth is it's a nul and void question that a genuine born again FOLLOWER of Jesus does not even have to think about.
1 Jonn 1 the complete chapter deals with the problem of when we sin. Psalm 37 is where david was dealing with his sin. If David committed adultery, killed the womans husband, and hid his sin, lied, and confessed his sin, and God forgave him, do you think God can't forgive us as well?
John 10 Jesus says a genuine FOLLOWER can not be taken away from His keeping us safe in His hand. The Holy Spirit lives in us as a proof positive we are HIS forever. Now either The HOLY WORD of GOD is true and we can TREUST the LORDs ability to keep HIS WORD and KEEP UD or the BIBLE is not true. I assure you it;s true. Yes we are sinners, big sinners, but GOD is so much bigger and JESUS Christ shed blood has saved us !
Now lets re state the statement. Genuine FOLLOWERS of Jesus Christ are saved forever, by GODs ability and love. The ability for us to save our self is impossible, ONLY GOD SAVES US AND KEEPS US ETERNALLY. Only Jesu saves us, we show our faith by FOLLOWING and OBEYING by the faith He gives us.
|53||Wife supports sinfull son||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238201|
|hsamot: I am fairly sure this situation is just the tip of the iceburg. There is clearly a division between you and your wife, and most likely the issue with this son is not the only problem between the two of you.
My first question is are you both followers of Jesus Christ? Are regular involved in a church together? Do you each have a time of reading Scripture and pray? Do you ever pray together? Were your children brought up in church? Is this son your son, or her son from another marraige?
this may seem like a lot of private questions, but any pastor or Chrostian marraige counselor worth a sprinkle of salt would ask these same qwuestions. After being a pastor I have heard things like this before.
I wonder how your budget is set up, iy sounds like what you make is yours and what is hers is hers. Other wise you two whouls be coming to a choice as if and how th help your wayward son. He is clearly not comitted to being failtful, and supporting his family. This is hard for you both to deal with this sonful son.
I suggest you first seek God and ask Him to give you wisdom. Perhaps seeking advice from your pastor, or a Christian marriage Counselor. I would read the book of James. and ask your wife to do the same. Pray for your son, but no longer keep aid going to him unless you both agree, until your pastor or counselor gives you a clear direction you both agree God has directed you both to do.
You son needs to find Jesus Christ and follow Him. Go with God.
|54||IS SAME SEX MARRIAGE ALLOWED?||Bible general Archive 4||justme||238147|
|Marriage is defined by The Holy Father as between a Man and a Woman. The only thing you have when two people of the same sex join themselves together sexually is homosexua;ity. That is completely against what God intends, thus a sin.
Sex outside of marriage is always a sin.
|55||Do you go to heaven right when you die||NT general||justme||235566|
|Paul said to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD. But here is a point to consider. It makes no difference, when Christians die they are in the hands of the LORD. I doubt very much we sleep in the grave. I have some fellow believers that will fight all day that we will sleep until Jesus comes. I finally got tired of hearing them repeat their theory, so I said what difference does it make. We are going to be where Jesus wants us to be. Check out Hebrews 9:27. Blessings.
|56||homework answers||Bible general Archive 4||justme||234986|
|There is no verse that says dishonesty is ok
I answered my own question. I hope this question gave some of our students something to think about.
|57||What does God look like?||Bible general Archive 4||justme||234916|
|What does doing your own homework look like?
Honesty is finding the answers yourself.
|58||is barack obama the antichrist?||1 John 2:18||justme||234384|
|Terrasahaar: Welcome to the Study Bible Forum. Some noteworthy christians have stated that President Obama, by his testimony, have convinced them President Obama is a christian. The Bible Answer Man being one that states this.
There are some that are just as convinced that President Obama has Muslim beliefs.
I think that the better way of responding to either side, is a Biblical response. God has placed, permitted, allowed Mr. Obama to be President of the United States. As is my christian responsibility I will pray for him. When President Obama does something that is not in line with what Scripture teaches I will email the White House and join in other groups that oppose his actions. When President Obama does something good I can praise him as well.
President Obama is unlikely the anti christ Scripture speaks of. However anyone who is not a christian is in reality a anti christ. We should be very careful in so freely making such harmful remarks against President Obama.
I have been very outspoken against President Obama, when he has made supportive efforts for homosexuality in the Military, and same sex marriage. Just to name a few issues.
In the Old Testament Calamity is mentioned about 75 times. Most of the times calamity is mentioned in Jeremiah. Many times the Lord has said He brings on calamity for punishment, and this can mean death to large numbers of people and even complete Nations. I personally believe the United States is under the Judgement of the Lord. Just look at the "calamities" our nation has undergone in recent times and years. I have not noticed repentance in our nation. Perhaps theLord is trying to get our attention. Perhaps Good has allowed our leaders to be a messenger of warning calamity. Blessings.
|59||speaking in tongues||Bible general Archive 4||justme||234197|
|I think if you read John and the book of Acts it will help form your own opinion. There are churches and some denominations that believe unless you utter an unknown language your salvation is incomplete and or you do not have the Holy Spirit living inside you.
A persons opinion is just that, but looking to Scripture for what God has said is what matters. I believe you may find tongues is within Scripture. There maybe little Scriptural defense for suggesting unless you speak in tongues salvation is insufficie
The subject of tongues is very important and you need to examine Scripture this for your self. So be very sure for yourself and do diligence in your reasearch. This may well take some time in searching the Scriptures. Blessings.
|60||Exo 12:29||Ex 12:23||justme||233963|
|Hello Herman: I have read a good number of your post's. There is no doubt you are well educated, and must have an extensive library along with a great ability for recalling a lot. I would say you have the ability to debate that challenges, and sharpens most that come up against you. I would guess you may have a PHD. Your command of English sure puts me to shame anyway, but so do a lot of others.
I believe the book of JOB as recorded is an accurate account of real events. I believe the Bible to be true, every bit. I don't consider myself to be an expert on any one book of the Bible, but I do study it and learn from it all the time.
There are some issues that are well worth while standing firm and digging in for all it's worth, and even going to the wall over. There are areas that are debatable, and both sides of the issue have great points and either side could be right. But those subjets are no reason for disfellowship betweeen each other.
However, even in areas of disagreement there is no acceptable reason to be high and mighty. I believe this forum is often read by a lot of people just looking about. The way the Study Bible Forum presents its post's either encourages people to ask a question, or gets turned off by what they think is endless debate and unkind words. That's not to say debating is bad. But there is a tone or way we say words that gives a strong negative feeling, or a or positive welcome.
John 13:35 "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." NASB. I will nor speak for anyone else. However, I will give you my opinion. You come across like you are a expert and only your remarks are vaild. This is not a place for competition or that anyone knows it all. For a very long time kindness, respect, and Christian love has been what the Study Bible Forum participant's have tried to illuminate.
I sincerely welcome you to the Study Bible Forum. Your eagerness to join in is a challenge and all of us need learn from one another. Blessings.
