I’ve found myself somewhat curious about this throughout my journey of discovering scriptural truth. I know some people say yes and some people say no, but fortunately since we have scripture, it’s my conclusion it can give us all the answers we need to know on major theological concerns without too much speculation. As I say often, it’s important for a Christian to always go by all of the scripture on everything as much as possible, and align themselves in agreement with it, because the scripture should always have the final say on one’s understanding of things (2 Tim 3:16). With that said, let’s start from the beginning of how one first of all gain’s salvation to even potentially lose it in the first place. (more…)

What is God’s plan for my life?

What is God’s plan for my life? Such a common question asked by many of professed Christians, but yet many fail to find that answer staring right back at them in Scripture. It’s somewhat of a pet peeve of mine that some expect God to have a specific designated special plan for their life as if they’re destined to achieve some kind of grand self-fulfilling purpose especially made for them. Students of the Word, I challenge you to recognize that your purpose in life is not specific, but in actuality quite general. We’ve all been given a general purpose as followers of Christ to fulfill God’s will (which is to say his desire that we commit ourselves to obeying His instructions of us in Scripture) and to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Lessons from Romans 6

Last updated on October 10th, 2019

Romans 6:3-4 “Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.” Hello fellow Scripture students. Let’s dive into some Romans 6, shall we? When we last left off in Romans 5, Paul discussed how we have eternal life through Jesus Christ, and as we continue following along in this next chapter, he details part of the process of how we’ve obtained that. He begins off by stating that in spite of grace, we should not continue in sin. Romans 6:1-2 states, “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?” (more…)

Salvation

Last updated on October 10th, 2019

The most important topic as it pertains to Christianity is salvation. It’s the central foundation of the Christian faith that all of mankind are sinners in need of the saving power of Jesus Christ, having shed his blood on the cross for all of man’s sins. Without this knowledge and realization, you have no Christians, and thus you have no Christianity. It perhaps can not be stressed anymore strongly than that, which is why is it’s extremely relevant for one to understand how to receive salvation through Christ. The difference between knowing and not knowing is the difference between a life of eternity with God and a life separated from God. There can not be any room for error when it comes to factually understanding this question of salvation, and God would not allow there to be any doubt about it for something He considered so important, the salvation of mankind, that he sent His only begotten son to die for it.
