  • Reply to Sola Fide Compromised? Martin Luther and the Doctrine of Baptism
    by ConfessionalLutheran
    Let's try to remember that while Luther did indeed teach sola fide, he also taught sola gratia. We remember that God's grace alone gives us the faith we need to enter into a God- pleasing life in fellowship with the Lord and His Holy Christian Church. Baptism ( like Absolution and Holy Communion) is entirely God's grace. It is what God does for us. The effect of the Sacrament remains the same whether one is gifted with saving faith at the time or not. Baptism ( as well as the proclamation of the Word) is meant to engender faith in the life of a child and the other Sacraments are meant to strengthen that faith. That is why baptism, unlike the other sacraments, is generally a one- time thing. There's only one baptism....

  • Reply to Sola Fide Compromised? Martin Luther and the Doctrine of Baptism
    by Dutch
    It always makes me crazy about Luther on the one hand preaching faith alone (as strong as anyone) and then teaching baptismal regeneration. The one saving grace (no pun intended) is that even Luther admits that the without faith the water accomplishes nothing. So I guess in a sense he is still teaching faith alone.

    by Matto
    Did you ever wonder why the Lord chose fishermen. I think it's because fishermen are men of faith, they don't know if they will catch anything yet they still go out.
    Fishermen were chosen to be leaders of the Church I think, because they constantly read the water and weather for danger and keep watch. They navigate by the heavens in humility when darkness falls, and don't trust their own reckoning but look to the heavens for guidance to safe harbour.

    by Matto
    When I was young, my parents thought I had an autistic fixation with knots it nearly earned me a stint in special school with other special children. I wasn't keen on that, so I threw out the line, twine, rope spicing gear and kilos of other stuff associated with it. My uncle raised the alarm because of all the animals I snared, killed everything on his property, just about. " I think you have a serious problem ", which cut me to heart, because I really liked him and looked up to him. But then I discovered knife sharpening, I took fixation to a transcendental level, I sharpened everything to beyond razor sharp. My mother who was almost always self controlled didn't like the lunatic level I sharpened her paring knife to. They say a sharp knife is safer than a blunt one, but only if you don't cut yourself with it, and definitely not in this case. Poor mum cut herself badly and then there was uproar, and dark prospect of special school was raised again.

    by sierraelii
    Hello dear, you are right. Gospel tracts for children should not just contain the message of the gospel. It should be able to convey the message in such a manner so that it can be easily understood by the children. However, it should have the capacity to engage the young minds. Whatever may be the context, the first impressions are important. Compelling illustrations and images are appealing to the little ones. A few days ago, one of my friends purchased Gospel Bible Tracts, for his child from, Gospeltracts.org who is sharing the message of Christ with all people worldwide. Thanks.

    by Onliner
    This is one of the most raised questions by our atheist brothers. Most of them, basing on this, seem to have resolved to become non-believers after being unable to get the appropriate answer.

    Honestly, I think about this every other day-how do we really know that indeed the God we believe in we as Christians is the one to be worshiped ? Why not the god in the Muslim context or any other world religions?...

  • The incontestable miracle at Fatima
    by Eddie
    Just curious what people's thoughts are on the miracle at Fatima in 1917? A quick summary of the facts:
    • 3 young children claimed a "lady from heaven" appeared out of nowhere in a remote field in Portugal where they were watching their animals, and the lady gave them a Catholic related message to relay to the people where they lived. This lady also told the children to meet her in this same location on the 13th of the month for the next 5 months at the same time where she would tell them more. Of course no one believed the children when they returned home with this news, and it caused a massive stir in their town.
    • The 3 children returned the following month, and many curious people came along with them. The children again claimed to see and speak with this "lady from heaven", but other bystanders could not see her. Since no one would believe the children, the lady told the children in July that she would perform a miracle on her last visit (Oct 13, 1917) so as "to

  • What happens when the believer dies?
    by AndThisGospel
    On another thread I asked the following question: "Why were those from Adam to Moses dying? Were they dying because the law condemned them to death? No, the law had yet to been posted by God on Mount Sinai. Therefore "sin is not imputed when there is no law" (Rom 5:13). Then why were they dying?

    Answer: Because all men share Adam's fallen life indwelt with sin and therefore stand disqualified for heaven and eternal life.

    This leads to another question: If there's nothing good in our flesh then why do some Christians teach that something goes to heaven upon the death of the believer?

    Let's look at Acts 2:29 “Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. ...34 For David did not ascend into the heavens.

    David was a man of God. He was a believer, yet we clearly see from Scripture that he did not enter heaven upon his death. Why?...

    by River Jordan
    When I discuss evolution with some fellow Christians, I often get in response "You either believe in science or God".

    In my experiences serving as youth leader at our church, I can't tell you how many times I've seen middle schoolers, teenagers, and young Christians struggle with this issue. Interestingly, it's almost exclusively the ones from conservative households that have the most problems. They've been raised and taught in a "you have to pick one or the other" environment. And most often they've also been fed creationist talking points like "there are no transitional fossils", "evolution is never observed", "mutations can't add information", and the like, but when they start taking biology courses they quickly find out that those talking points simply aren't true....transitional fossils exist by the thousands, we see populations evolve all the time, mutations adding information is as common as rain, and so on.

  • Why do most modern Christians only follow 9 of the 10 commandments? [Sabbath Day]
    by Trist
    I was told that I was required to work today and I called in and said that I would not work because I guard the 10 commandments. I live in an "at will" state and have a high probability of being fired for doing this, but I believe that I have done the right thing at this time. If I have not done the right thing, why is this so and where can it be found in scripture? My interpretation of what Jesus spoke against was not the law of Moses, but against the ridiculous additions that were made to it by the scribes and Pharisees. I also know that the Sabbath day (or seventh day) was created before the law of Moses.

    The Sabbath day appears to be a gift from the most high to mankind for rest and for learning about God (Jesus taught in the tabernacle on the Sabbath day routinely, and this is why I want to learn about the Sabbath day now), and it feels wrong to deny a gift from God.

    Be sure to follow our basic principle: Godliness is founded on truth. A test of truth is its power to promote holiness according to our Savior's rule, "By their fruits ye shall know them" (Matthew 7:20). No opinion can be more pernicious or more absurd than that which brings truth and falsehood upon the same level. On the contrary, there is an inseparable connection between faith and practice, truth and duty; otherwise it would be of no consequence either to discover truth or to embrace it. While under the conviction of the above principle, it is necessary to make effective provision that all who are admitted as teachers be sound in the faith, there are truths and forms with respect to which men of good character a...
