It begins in Exodus 19, and the Ten Commandments were delivered in Exodus 20. Is it a covenant of grace and law or law and what exactly?
Are the covenants made with Abraham still in force? Are there more than one? A related, subsequent question: Do Jews have a biblical right to live in Israel today?
After God exercised his justice-wrath-judgment, he made a covenant with Noah. Is it relevant to us today?
Adam’s name means “humankind.” He represents all of humanity. Let’s see what we can learn from his story.
A council took place in heaven. The Triunity agreed that they would reach down to humanity and redeem it. It was a rescue mission. This agreement is also a covenant—the Covenant of Redemption.
Consider the parallels in the long table in this post. It reveals who we are. God’s gigantic global project for us humans is to lift us out of our mammal-sin nature and recover the image of God in Christ.
“All sins are the same! Sin is sin!” I have heard this confusion even from pastors. So how can we blame the laity if they get it wrong?
Are we body and soul? Or are we body, soul, and spirit? It’s not as clear-cut as most Renewalists believe.
We live in a society that degrades humankind with cursing people, promiscuously sharing our bodies with various partners, doing drugs, and other dehumanizing things. God calls us to something higher.
Whether it is original sin, or the sins we actually commit, the solution is the same: Jesus and his sacrificial, atoning death.
It’s a word that is unpopular today, but it is thoroughly biblical and accurate about human nature. This post is full of easy-to-follow word studies. A solution is offered!
If you need a good summary post with sound theology on how angels operate in your life and other “angelic issues,” this is your post.
Renewalists believe that angels are real. Many of us have seen them, either in our dreams or in person.
The Scriptures clarify that angels are real, and so is their heavenly dimension where they live.
Renewalists (Pentecostals, Charismatics and Neo-Charismatics) believe that angels appear to people in their dreams or in person, even today. It is God’s ongoing ministry to us. But we must get our biblical doctrine straight, or we can stray.
He can be identified with the preincarnate Son of God, before he became a human at his birth. But where those verses? And can all of the verses describing an angelic visitation refer to Jesus?
Deliverance and maintaining lasting freedom from satanic oppression includes these essential ingredients.
You have to avoid those things. Here’s why.
Renewalists believe that Satan is real and attacks people, but in Christ they can have victory over the evil spirit being.
This post covers Satan and his attack on people—even you at times. And so can Christians ‘have’ a demon or be demon-possessed or demonized?
This post tells what the Bible says about where Satan came from (if this can be known) and how he became evil.
If you want to learn the basics, this post is for you, in a convenient Q&A format.
It’s important to define the terms, so the rest of the doctrine of the Trinity can be clear—or clear enough.
The illustrations must not be taken as perfect and all-revealing. Each has weaknesses. But they can still help.
The inner life of God is rich and plural within unity or oneness.
The Father Son, and Holy Spirit appear everywhere in the New Testament, but here are five famous declarations of the three persons in the same passage.
Here are what a few long-time professional theologians say about it. They will keep your thoughts in order—or show you how much a mystery the Trinity is!
The two areas interact—God created, but his highest creation fell. Now humans need redemption. How does the Trinity accomplish this?
This is the most important and well-known verse in the Bible, but do we consider what that phrase means?
This article covers the Arian heresy and its modern-day equivalent in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
A prominent pastor said on global Christian television (paraphrased): “God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. See? Three Gods! Right? All agree? Okay!” Not okay. We must learn about defective teachings, so we can steer clear of them.
Here are standard objections and answers to them.
The Trinity—also called Triunity or three persons contained in one God—is who God is in his fullest united, one essence.
Some over-thinking Christians would like to scrap the Trinity. Bad idea. Let’s see how the doctrine to our daily lives and relationship with God.
