Bob Jones/Bob Jones University is probably the most (in)famous defender of American racial segregation on the Christian side of things. In 1960, Bob Jones Sr. issued a sermon entitled "Is Segregation Spiritual?" apparently issued in direct response to a call by Billy Graham for church leaders to get behind ending segregation. The sermon was then made into ...

What is the scriptural evidence that faith comes from God? Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of ...

The doctrine of Sola fide (Latin for "by faith alone") holds that: God's pardon for guilty sinners is granted to and received through faith alone, excluding all "works." And that: God, on the basis of the life, death, and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ alone (solus Christus), grants sinners judicial pardon, or justification, which is ...

Since your question focuses on dual covenant theology's biblical basis, I will cite the main points and verses and leave you to research the major proponents' more complex arguments in their writings at your leisure: After the Great Flood, God imposed a set of laws on Noah and his family and their descendants (Genesis 9:3-10), which makes them binding on ...

On Nakedness and Shame In Gen. 2:25, it states "and the two of them were naked" (וַיִּֽהְיוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם עֲרוּמִּים), but it does not say that Adam and Eve knew they were naked (cp. Gen. 3:11). The statement that they were naked is merely an objective fact. Because they did not know they were naked, "they were not ashamed" (וְלֹא יִתְבֹּשָׁשׁוּ) (ibid). Yet, ...

Me and some of the members of my church just had a discussion on dominion theology earlier today. The verses which are referenced for this topic are Genesis 1:26 and Luke 19:13 (KJV) "26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and ...

As mentioned in previous answers, the appointment of John to remain on the earth to preach the Gospel is analogous to the three Nephite apostles Jesus chose to do the same while visiting America. In fact, He said to them: ...ye have desired the thing which John, my beloved, who was with me in my ministry, before that I was lifted up by the Jews, ...

The basis for this teaching is, as noted in another answer, is found in John 21:21-23, where Jesus, speaking to Peter, sidesteps a question regarding John's future death. More direct teaching is found in Doctrine and Covenants 7, where Jesus is quoted as saying: 1 And the Lord said unto me: John, my beloved, what desirest thou? For if you shall ask what ...

Anselm's satisfaction theory of the atonement is developed in his book, Cur Deus Homo, and, as presented, is not "based on the Bible" like we might expect. Instead, Anselm relies heavily on logic, and largely avoids citing Scripture to make his case. However, he is forced to rely on it in a few places, and he also tangentially mentions it in others. For ...

What is the Biblical basis against the omnipresence of Satan? Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. It would seem that if Satan came from going to and fro that he was not able to be everywhere at once.

Water suspended in zero gravity would be frozen as ice crystals and would not be boiling, the freezing cold temperatures of space would help keep the water from doing such. Also, one thing we all know about water is that it is translucent! This canopy could have diffused the light somewhat making the natural light at ground level less intense, which would ...

The "Swedenborgian" or "New Church" denominations that accept the Christian theology of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) do not see Satan, or the Devil, as a person, but as a personification of, or collective term for, evil and hell. The following rather long (for this site) explanation of this position, and its Biblical basis, is extracted and slightly ...

Faith comes from God because it is symbolized by the gold we are counselled to buy. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Rev 3:18, KJV) The same symbolism ...
