After finishing my post on the many differences between the Israel of God (and their Gospel of the Circumcision) and the body of Christ (and our Gospel of the Uncircumcision) — which you can find here — and being told by someone who read it that they still can’t see the clear pattern of differences… Continue reading They’re the same picture
Is the Kingdom of God a present reality or a future promise? One of the biggest mistakes one can make when it comes to the question of whether the kingdom already exists or whether it’s still yet to fully begin on earth is to assume the answer is anything other than: Yes. Recently, due to… Continue reading Kingdom come?
In order to argue that there’s only one Gospel in Scripture (and that the result of salvation is the same for everyone), it helps to first believe that the Israel of God and the church known as the body of Christ are actually one and the same entity, and that references to Israel in Scripture… Continue reading Things that differ
[Please click the links as you go through this article, since they will take you to my scriptural references, as well as to articles containing extended exegesis on my various points.] What is death? The answer to this question is simple: death is the absence of life. In fact, this is such a simple concept… Continue reading What is death?
Most people today completely misunderstand what death is. They’ve bought into the lie of the serpent that “ye shall not surely die,” believing that the dead aren’t really dead at all, but are actually alive as ghosts in some ethereal afterlife dimension. I’ve written about this elsewhere, both in chapter 2 of my eBook (which… Continue reading Is He the God of the dead or isn’t He?
How is it that one is saved from “hell”? (I’m going to pretend that “hell” is a good translation of the Greek word Gehenna in the following verses in the King James Version of the Bible. It’s not, but for the sake of argument, I’m going to temporarily work under the assumption that it is.)… Continue reading Salvation through mutilation
There are lots of other passages I can use as well, and I have in other places on this website, but I can show you, using two simple verses of Scripture, that God will save all humanity. First, Galatians 6:10, where Paul wrote, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,… Continue reading “…all men, especially…”
Most of us in the actual body of Christ (not to be confused with the Christian religion) are well aware of the fact that there is more than one Gospel in Scripture (at least we are if we’ve been a member for much time at all), and that the end result of believing the different… Continue reading Simple proof that the body of Christ is not the Israel of God
There are basically three soteriological positions one can hold to (meaning there are three different scriptural understandings of salvation and the ultimate destiny of all humanity that one can believe in). These three positions are: A) Universalism (the idea that everyone will be saved and reconciled to God in the end), B) Annihilationism (the idea… Continue reading Your understanding of salvation seems to be supported by Scripture
Parallelisms of different sorts are used all throughout Scripture, but nobody used them better than the apostle Paul when he used them to explain what it is his evangel really means (meaning, what the outcome of the Good News he proclaimed is). The First Man: Adam = Condemnation (mortality and sinfulness) The Second Man: Christ… Continue reading How Paul used parallelisms to teach the salvation of all
