You missed an essential part of the scripture in 1 Corinthians, I feel. The full scripture in KJV reads: 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. Paul is opposing views here that may have arisen, that a believing woman ...

For most Protestants this is a matter of semantics. Protestants know full well that Catholics call Mary, the "Blessed Mother." They also know that if you ask a Catholic "Is Mary blessed?"

Meaning of the parable in Luke 17:7-10 The essence of Christianity is our faith (trust) in Jesus. The disciples knew from the personal experience of living with Jesus how important a living faith is.

Now compare that with the expectations or demands of the law. ...

For general context, see Martin Hengel, Property and Riches in the Early Church: Aspects of a Social History of Early Christianity (Fortress, 1998). Hengel was one of the foremost ...

A major characteristic of the spirit of Elijah is to bring back to God his people. This is what Elijah did (1 kings 17,18), this is what JOHN did, turning the people back to God, preparing the way of the Lord. So Elijah and John had same mission, only means to fulfil their mission were different. Miracles were just a mean.

In “take up your cross daily” what does “cross” refer to? Luke 9:20-26 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, ...
