The Bible doesn't say specifically. However, thinking about it logically, I've always thought that Adam and Eve possibly had many other children. They lived for quite a long time, allowing for many generations of children. It may be that the Bible simply doesn't talk about these children because they weren't significant to the story. Another thought would be ...

That the hymn writer's doctrine here is correct can be seen particularly clearly in the parable of the unforgiving servant (cf. Matthew 18:21-35) - the eponymous servant received (extraordinary) grace through the large cancellation of his debt but upon his insistence that another servant repay a much smaller debt owed to him, he was judged not worthy of the ...

I think ... that it is almost certainly a case of poetic license here. It's simply saying "I'm incredibly immeasurably grateful for this gift of grace and I want to dedicate my life to you because of it".

There is no Scriptural evidence that I find to support that claim. However, I believe that the following scripture does support the idea that not only life, but the Soul begins at conception. Genesis 2:7 KJV And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Many who ...

Aquinas addresses the question from different angles a number of places in the Summa Theologica, in various parts of the "Treatise on the Most Holy Trinity" (First Part, Questions 27–43). The fundamental question is answered more or less directly in Question 27, "The Procession of the Divine Persons". Article 2 of this question, "Whether any ...

Consider the value the following men place on experience: “This grace of God is a very great, strong, mighty and active thing. It does not lie asleep in the soul. Grace hears, leads, drives, draws, changes, works ...

Your question kind of hops around, but I can say that the justification for that belief is the verse you provide plus some others Hebrews 13:8 ESV Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Malachi 3:6 ESV For I the Lord do not change James 1:17 ESV Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the ...

I think you answered your own question in saying it was simply a "friendlier alternative to theology." There could be many answers here, but I'm willing to bet those authors use the term God-Talk to come across more down-to-earth and less egg-headed. This is probably because their readership might feel intimidated by a book with the word theology in it.

Three highlights immediately come to mind: Ethiopia has a legitimate claim to being the oldest Christian country in the world (although Armenia has one as well.) from the Eunuch that met Phillip on, Christianity has been rooted in Ethiopia. The Coptic (Egyptian) Church and the Alexandrian School was influential in the Patristic period. They tended towards ...

INTRODUCTION Your specific question is not overly clear, but it seems you are essentially asking if there is any doctrine worth dividing over, and you mention the many denominations that exist as problematic. I'm reminded of the satirical quote by Steve Turner: We believe that all religions are basically the same, at least the one we read was. They ...
