  1. No, the apostles were not infallible. Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
  2. Agree with the bold. For me, the claims in Islam about corruption in the Bible amounts to the same claim as the law being done away within mainstream Christianity. Neither seems to embrace the original religion that significantly.
  3. The question is "what does it mean to be under grace?" All that it means is that by grace we are saved. It doesn't mean that you don't follow the law. People ignore or gloss over that passage by Paul that says the opposite of what you claiming: "Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law." Romans 3:31 How does one get around that and claim that Paul does away with the law? Paul states very clearly that faith does not void the law. It is as though he knew that people may try to change the message of his writings. Paul explains the inter
  4. Paul UPHELD the Law. He believe in and taught that the law is valid. Romans 3:31 - Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. Romans 2:12-15 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of
  5. The majority of modern Christianity follows a misinterpretation of Paul. Paul teaches the same message as Jesus.
  6. Yes, but nowhere does this permit the discarding of the dietary laws. Again, the discussion in the New Testament regarding what to eat or drink deals with food offered to idols. As clarified in the verses in your previous post: Acts 15:28-29 28 "For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things. 29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell." Nowhere does the New Testament do away with di
  7. Hello Placid, The Scripture made very clear that "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." Matthew 5:18 Heaven and earth have not passed away, therefore, God's law stands firm as the standard for those who believe in Scripture. The New Commandment in no way changes the old either. We simply should adhere to it, just as other commandments that God has provided to us. The whole issue here is the understanding of what constitutes the Law of Moses. The law of Moses is the sacrificial/ceremonial law or ordinanc
  8. My mind went immediately to these verses: Matthew 7:21-23 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
  9. Christianity varies greatly, making such statements inaccurate. In my branch of the faith, we believe in the laws of God. The 10 Commandments are mandatory for us, including the seventh-day Sabbath (not Sunday). We believe the dietary laws are valid and one takes an oath to uphold them. No pork, shrimp etc. No alcohol, tobacco or other drugs. Tithing is mandatory. Prayer is considered critical to daily Christian life. Fasting and praying is encouraged, not just in our branch, but throughout Christianity. There are other groups within Christianity that uphold
  10. No, there are branches of Christianity that follow the dietary laws of the Bible and therefore do not eat pork, shrimp, and other unclean foods. Some also believe alcohol is forbidden as well. Same with tobacco or any other drug.
  11. There are definitely similarities here, which have been mentioned. As a Christian (Seventh-Day Adventist), our last day beliefs are very much rooted in the 3 angels' messages in Revelation. Revelation 14:6-12King James Version (KJV) 6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the
  12. Most have probably never heard of it. I certainly had not until now, and it has no bearing on my life. God will deal with them.
  13. Yes, there are groups who follow Scripture in this manner, usually Sabbatarian Christians. I am Seventh-day Adventist.
  14. In Adventist Christianity, we take an oath of modesty, in dress and overall. The majority refrain from wearing jewelry. Children's ears are often unpierced. People do not even see wedding rings as necessary but they are considered acceptable for practical reasons. Simple, modest living is encouraged in all areas of life. For most of my life, I didn't wear any jewelry at all. My mother wears none. My parents don't even wear wedding bands. Very recently, I started wearing some but very inexpensive. It likely won't be lasting.
