There is no good reason to think that way. It would have been very easy for the enemies of Christianity to dismiss it, if there was no Jesus to begin with. But they didn't. Then, this would have taken a whole lot of people to plainly lie everyone in the face. The person Jesus himself is very important to every aspect of christian theology. If there was no ...

) There are options Went to heaven Stayed on earth Went to heaven Elijah went from earth to the Heaven where God is, just like it is inferred for Enoch in Gen 5:23, i.e. they "died" (in like a very weak sense of the word) or went to heaven alive. Some believe that Elijah was later reincarnated as John the baptist Matthew 11:13-14, which he also denied ...

This appears to be an issue arising from primarily JWitnesses study, or perhaps some other sect. JW try to assert that no one went to heaven before Jesus. See article here: link. The JW case is non-existent. There was a Jehoram of Israel and a Jehoram of Judah. We read from the article: There is no indication that Elijah went up to heaven before he ...

The Bible often uses the term "heaven" to indicate the sky overhead where rain and snow originate: also the realm of the sun, moon and stars. King Jehoram was in the second year of his reign (2 Kings 1:17) when the Fiery Chariot appeared overhead to take Elijah heavenwards. It is surprising that the sons of the prophets knew ahead of time when Elijah was to ...

The Book of Revelation written by a prophet of God, a seer who was every bit the equal of any OT prophet, is full of rich imagery equal to any artists' rendering we might go to a gallery to see. The book is a canvas that John painted on and a tablet that a poet set down verse and couplet upon. In the case of the book of Revelation, John provided the ...

Like you said in your question, there is the Magnificat, also known as the Song of Mary. Luke 1:46-55 ESV And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has ...

And if darwin took his theory from philosophers and the same who Paul stood up against in acts 17:18. This cannot by any means be a stronghold to Christianity since its a old battle and a defeated one at that o yea and what i want to get at is since darwin took it from philosophers its nothing more than a philosopy .evolution which is epicurianism is just ...

"A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs" quotes early Christian fathers such as Origen, Clement of Alexandria, Cyprian and many more. Under the heading of evolution there are a lot of quotes of the church fathers pretty much dissolving the opinions of the people who follow the doctrine of Epicurus, Democritus and Lucritus. I will give a quote from the early ...

A better question would be: Why is it there in the Book of Abraham? Because really, it's not like it is very important for us to know about some star named Kolob "closest to the throne of God", whatever that exactly means. In my opinion it is not even clear what "closest" really means here. If you read the chapter, you see that Abraham is shown the stars, ...

Yes, but you ought to understand what "Mammon" means. William Tyndale, before he was martyred for translating the bible into English wrote about this passage in his work "The Parable of the Wicked Mammon" which he often refers to as "Mammon". He explains: First, Mammon is an Hebrew word and signifieth riches or temporal goods, and namely, all ...
