In addition to user2782001's answer, there is also the option of short term missions. Short term missions might be a missions trip for a summer, a week over spring break or over a weekend. Trips like this will typically consist of service projects or a Vacation Bible School, which is a children's program which will typically consist of games, a learning ...

For Catholics, one can read from the Catechism paragraphs 328-336. In terms of a guardian angel, we read the following, showing the Catholic Church believes children do not lose their angels: 336 From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. [Cf. Mt 18:10; Lk 16:22; Pss 34:7; 91:10-13; Job 33:23-24; Zech 1:12; ...

I come from a family of Protestant missionaries. From a Protestant standpoint, the definition of a missionary is very apostle Paul-like. You simply have to go teach the gospel where it is not taught. There doesn't have to be a huge process to it. The only time tight restrictions and approval processes come into play is when someone wanting to do mission ...

Humans love to categorise things, and we normally think of categories as dividing things up with borders between the categories. But that isn't actually how we normally do conceptualise our categories - instead we categorise things according to their likeness to archetypes or prototypes, the central most typical examples of a category. The borders between ...

You're correct that Methodist don't accept sola scriptura, but instead prima scriptura. Not only that, they also reject sola fide. That is because they teach synergism. Now, I do know some Pentecostals also hold to synergism, and therefore reject sola fide. Also, if you consider Anglicanism to be Protestant (which most don't, but they are related) there are ...

The doctrine of Mary’s perpetual virginity comes not only from Catholics as you mentioned but from traditional Lutheranism as well. The basis for this is not only an ancient understanding of the role Mary plays in the incarnation, but also it is revealed to the early Christians, especially those coming from Rabbinic Judaism, as a completion of God’s plan as ...

I was trying to say that The old covenant was simply a Physical shadow of the spiritual truths of the new covenant. "Heb 8:3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. Heb 8:4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that ...

Isaiah. Levites were consecrated to God from birth. Num_3:12 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that opens the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine; They were ministers of the tabernacle Numbers 7:5 Num_18:6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren ...

The meaning of 2 Timothy 3:16 hinges on the meaning of two words in that verse: 1. θεόπνευστος (theopneustos), "God-breathed, inspired by God" This word occurs only once in the New Testament, in 2 Timothy 3:16. However, it is a compound of two common Greek words meaning "God" and "breath," so translating it is easy enough. Exactly what the writer of 2 ...

2 Timothy 3:16 says that all scripture is God-breathed. The words clearly have the meaning that all scripture is inspired by God. If Paul wrote these words, he can only have been writing of the Old Testament, since there was no notion of the books of New Testament as 'scripture' during the first century, and in any case, Paul lived before the first gospel ...

What is the pure offering if not the offering of Christ on the Cross Re-presented Daily all over the world in the Catholic Church? Some people believe that prophecies about Israel that have not yet been fulfilled are now to be applied to the church. This often requires some degree of allegoricalization to accomplish. Others consider that there is a future ...

The above answer that says we are saved by "nothing less and nothing more" than faith in Jesus Christ is at best misleading. Scripture also has this to offer, from the Epistle of James, Chapter 2: Faith and Works.[f] 14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister ...

Protestants believe that the priesthood is given to all Christians and therefore all Christians have the authority to interpret the bible. Sola Scriptura (Bible alone as authority) as another user pointed out resulted in many denominations having their own interpretation. Also the bible was put together by the church (East and West) only in the 4th century ...
