  1. This is really good you are doing this. Take your time and prayerfully read the words of His holy Book. When you hit 1 Chronicles 10 it is much the same as from 1 Samuel 31 and on, but there are a few things between the two that differ - not contradict, but just other information may appear in one that does not appear in the other. Keep us informed as to your progress, questions and/or insights.
  2. This is why I think they are the most dangerous. Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses are just so glaringly way off, but with the RCC theu will affirm the Trinity, the Bible is God's word, Christ died on the cross and rose bodily from the dead, His role as Judge, etc., etc.
  3. Psalm 119:128 teaches that we are to hate every false way. I don't single out the RCC anymore than I think I do other groups that clam to be Christian but are not. I know I have posted on this web site concerning the Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and others.
  4. Okay. Thanks. Do you think it was wrong for Jonathan to publicly challenge his father's command when he became aware of it (1 Samuel 14:29)?
  5. Psalm 34:11 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. (NASB) 1. Watson's Biblical and Theological Dictionary: Fear is put for the whole worship of God: "I will teach you the fear of the Lord" Psalms 34:11; I will teach you the true way of worshipping and serving God. (Fear) http://www.studylight.org/dictionaries/wtd/view.cgi?n=668 I think fearing the Lord also entails a continuous worshipful mindset of awe, wonder and respect for the Lord. Proverbs 23:17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long. (KJV)

    The Book of Hosea

    I would go with Jonah having it the worst. Being thrown overboard in a massive storm with raging seas and then having a huge fish open its mouth at you had to be utterly terrifying.
  7. I think it is also interesting the wording found in Hosea 9:11. As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird— No birth, no pregnancy and no conception! (NASB)
  8. Is there anything that you find interesting in this book? Hosea 4:7 corresponds to Philippians 3:19.
  9. Sorry about that. That was not my intention. It always takes the Lord to initiate opening the heart (Acts 16:14).
  10. If they no longer believe what was declared in the Council of Trent (in what I have cited anyway) does that mean during the Council of Trent they taught false doctrine?
  11. The doctrine of the Roman Catholic church affirms that others besides God can be prayed to. How does God feel about idolatry?
  12. I obey God after I am saved, but my obedience is not how I am saved. If anyone says that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in divine mercy, which remits sins for Christ’s sake, or that it is this confidence alone that justifies us, LET HIM BE ANATHEMA (Canons Concerning Justification, Canon 12). By affirming the above Roman Catholicism has placed itself under God's anathema. Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (TDNT)
  13. Because they are not fully trusting Christ. Christ + something = nothing Christ + nothing = everything It's not just my opinion. Romans 4:5 teaches it is by faith and not by any works whereby a person is saved. 1. William Mounce: While we tend to justify ourselves before God that we deserve salvation because of our good behavior (cf. Lk. 10:25-29; 16:15), in reality no one is "justified by observing the law" (Gal. 2:16; cf. Rom. 3:20) but only by faith in Jesus Christ. This is Paul's core message in Rom. 3:21-28 (Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, Righteous, page 594). 2. TDNT: Paul in his conflict with judaising Christianity finds in Abraham an example of the man who is justified by faith alone (R.4:1 ff.; Gl. 3:6 ff.), and can thus see in Christians both of Jewish and Gentile descent the true children of Abraham and heirs of the Abrahamic promise (1:9, Abraham, J. Jeremias).
  14. It answers your question in that Christ had to be God and not a mere man to die for the sins of His people. In answer to your present question: He wold not be absolutely righteous. Only God is.
  15. Thus they do not believe that Christ fully paid for their sins. It is Christ + something they have to undergo = no salvation
