No. Enoch sinned just like the rest of us. He was taken to heaven because Christ's righteousness was imputed to him, just like it is imputed to us. Christ's death and resurrection saved all believers past and present, there is no need for any other explanation of righteousness.

The best answer that I've ever heard was from Paul Washer who said this: Enoch walked with God for so long that when it was time to go home, God said: "You know what Enoch, you've been walking with me for so long, look we're closer to my home then yours. Why don't you just come home with me." We know that All men have sinned and all men fall short of ...

I am not a Catholic but I will try to answer anyway. The term dogma has a specific technical meaning: it refers to a belief that Catholics are required by the Church to accept. There are many beliefs which are not dogmas, even if they are widely held to be true. The book Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma by Ludwig Ott (1952) is a standard reference. He lists ...

Genesis 5:24 tell us a brief narration of a patriarch. Details are not available because the historical rigor was not important in the OT. Life and acts of Enoch were not mentioned by the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews (11:5), who notes only the faith of the Patriarch the price to pay to "not see death". We can take the example of Eliah in 2 Kings ...

Because John 3:13 says, "And no man hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended from heaven" (Douay) I am inclined to believe that they went to Abraham's bosom. That is the easiest interpretation of that verse without going through some severe theological hoops. Additionally, and this is admittedly out of the scope of the question directly, but there ...

C Rags answer is the best one so far because it is based on Scripture (Unfortunately as of now I can't comment neither vote up on his answer). If I am to give another answer, I would also use the Scripture beginning in Romans 5:12-14 (KJV): 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for ...

I will let the Scriptures speak for themselves: As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.. ...

St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael are the only named Archangels on the feast of the Archangels on September 29th. We have no named angels except those three and no public revelation except the Bible, therefore no angel named Metatron.

Canonization has nothing to do with whether something "is" scriptural, contextual, or whatever. Canonization is simply agreement that a book is considered "most profitable" by most of the church. Even if you convince "me," you have about 2.1 billion more people to go. Two thousand years on, it is simply too late for the 'whole church' to change it. By ...

As far as the Bible is concerned about the Nephilim, it seems quite clear that they are annihilated in the Flood, but somehow they survive. The Flood story starts in Genesis six and seems to indicate that the Nephilim were a major reason for sending it. The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the ...

Interesting question indeed ! I made some researches on wol.jw.org, and came accross this reference : http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2010649 Here is the summary : Although this is often asked as a trick question by Bible skeptics, the Bible does provide sufficient detail to give a satisfactory answer. Genesis chapters 3 and 4 present the ...
