The 'penal' in penal substitution is based on the idea that sin brings about punishment under the curse of the law. The curse of Adam's sin is death, which is a punishment. Punishment = the curse under the law for sin. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” ...

At the risk of being obvious (too obvious, perhaps, such that I'll get a bunch of downvotes!), the penalty aspect of Christ's death was just that: DEATH! "The soul that sinneth shall die," the Scriptures say (Ezekiel 18:4)). "In the day that you eat thereof, you will die" (Genesis 2:17). (We know, of course, there are two kinds of death: spiritual and ...

Romans 5 is a great chapter for this topic. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ...

This appears to a revised prediction based on an earlier failed prediction from Harold Camping.

After this failed to eventuate, He kept a relatively low profile until his death in 2013; however ...

According to Scripture, the Rapture, Christ's return, will only happen once the gospel has been preached to all nations, so it would seem then that it will not happen any time soon. Matthew 24:14 (KJV) And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

I think the statement "half man and half animal" is a derogatory interpretation of the traditional Christian belief that God created man as a special type of creature, fully spiritual and existing in a material body (as Christ is fully man and fully God, so man is not divided in his materiality and spirituality). But if I had to guess, I think Feuerbach is ...

There is a verse that gives room for such interpretation: "So he brought the people down to the water; and the Lord said to Gideon, "Every one that laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself; likewise every one that kneels down to drink." And the number of those that lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was ...

There is a verse in Genesis that gives room for such interpretation: "When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his ...

From my view, the simplest and most succinct biblical arguments against the Roman doctrine of transubstantiation are John 6:48 I am the bread of life. [RSV] and John 6:51a I am the living bread come down from heaven; [RSV] Now, since the doctrine of transubstantiation specifically provides that after the consecration, the substance of Jesus has ...

1 Corinthians 10:1-4 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock ...
