  • What are the Main Teachings Here at Bibleforums.org?

    Are you guys premillennial or amillenial?

    Are you guys OSAS Arminian (Jacob Arminius taught), non-OSAS Arminian (Roman Church, remonstrants) or Calvinist?

    What other unique, that is, different, teachings from the Protestant or Roman view do you have so I can understand this place?

    Be blessed! You will find some that fit in every category you have described and others who fit into none of them.It's a quilt work of ideas here. Jump in and tell us how you see it.

    Mal 3:16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

      Since this is not any church or denomination within the Body of Christ but instead, a group of people worshiping, fellowshipping and learning together from ALL the Body of Christ, from all over the world... you will find all you asked about.

      This ministry is for learning and growing and in many situations, correction and conviction as the Holy Spirit leads to the illumination of God's truth in the Word of God.

        Here's a poll I done sometime ago this may help to get a better understanding of the concenus.

          Let's just say that I've figured out that there are kind of different factions on here...

            Most on here believe in Christ crucified, risen again and through His grace, salvation for those who believe in Him. Beyond that--and at times in that--you'll find interesting discussions which sometimes offer revelation of who God is. Some discussions here may challenge some of your beliefs to either strengthen or change them, hopefully through a demonstration of scripture and hopefully not taking away from the first statement in my post.

              Seems to be a pretty equal mix as far as i can see. I guess the more poignant question would be what are the views of the owners of this site and what is the beliefs of the moderators and how far does their tolerance go in allowing different views to be expressed.

                I don't see factions. There may be something like loose alliances on a particular issue here or another issue there. But two people who are agreeing and helping each other in one thread on a certain topic will be earnestly debating another issue against one another in another thread. People like to fit everyone into a Box to make things easier for them. But in here people being people do not co-operate and confine themselves to a box.

                  That what I suspected. The majority are historicalist or historicist.

                  My problem with that of course is that wouldn't make the book of Revelation much of a book of end-times as Genesis is the book of beginning times.

                  If Revelation was mostly fulfilled, I think you guys say it is mostly fulfilled up to Rev. 17 or so, then who could understand it and interpret it according to history except scholars and historians as they try to match events or allegorize inordinately to try to make things fit.

                  They will say you need intermediary priesthood to show you, but I don't buy that, since the body of Christ is a royal priesthood. We should not judaize Christianity.

                  But the word of God is for us all.

                    I think it is possible for people to say they believe Christ crucified, rose again and through His grace, salvation for those who believe in Him and yet not be saved.

                    Why?

                    Because for example, if they are Calvinist what they really mean is they were irresistibly selected, but God never imposes regeneration on anyone irresistibly. We all have the choice since His grace is sufficient for all. That's why Rom. 1.20 says none of us are without excuse. Irresistible grace is insufficient grace.

                    Or, if you are looking for Jesus who is to return but won't reing on earth and claims the 1000 years is now with wars and rumours of wars even though Rev. 20.3 says the nations won't be deceived in the 1000 years, you're looking for a Jesus I am not looking for.

                      Take it for granted the majority view of the forums is the majority view of the forum owners since it is my experience forum owners and moderators ban more so according to their belief not according to righteousness and justice and doing the right thing.

                        Some are looking for Jesus who will not reign on earth for 1000 years. Others are. There will be many false Christs.

                          I have a post trib pre-mil position at the moment. However,I don't think those who disagree with me have another Jesus. I mean,I could be the one deceived. There is not a single person who is totally deceived that does not think he is right. That's the problem with deception,you never know when you are deceived. But it spite of all that,I don't see in the bible where Jesus gives us a theology test at his judgement seat. He judges us by what we did and did not....DO.
                          Mal 3:16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

                            Enjoy finding a place that is an exception to the rule.

                            Here, there is only one owner. And he isn't very active in daily posting or moderation activies. He keeps it running, and he is present, but he far from pushes his views.

                            You'll find a mod-staff here comprised of many different perspectives, whether varying in regards to eschatology, or other areas beyond that which are typically debate hot-spots on most forums.

                            Since there is no specific pet-beliefs held here at this forum, you should enjoy the change. Banning is a pretty rare thing here, and not one driven so much by differing viewpoints, but rather from bad attitudes that choose to destroy the body instead of edify and lift it up.

                            Welcome and post away.

                              My concern for you is when a couple million vanish at the first rapture will accuse the brethren day and night because you were not included?

                              "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things [the Tribulation] that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man" (Luke 21.36).

                              Notice at this first rapture it is not to the air as is the case for the rapture and resurrection at the last trumpet (1 Thess. 4.14-18) but to throne in 3rd heaven (Rev. 7.9) to stand before the Son of Man.

                              And this rapture is conditional. If you don't watch and pray always, you will not be accounted worthy to be raptured before the Tribulation.

                              There are advanced parties and harbingers in every spheere: a firstfruits (Rev. 14.1-5) and later harvest (vv.14-16).
