we believe that there was a literal world wide flood and that a literal man named Noah who built an ark and that God brought all the animals to him to perserve them during the flood
We believe that God literally wrote on tables of stone and gave it to Moses
We believe that God literally made the ground wet and fleece dry for Gideon
We believe that Elijah literally called down fire from heaven
We believe that Elisha by God's power made the axhead to literally float
We believe that Namaan was literally cured of his leprosy by dipping in the Jordan 7 times
We believe that Jesus literally walked on water, healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons, read people's mind, walked untouched and unrecognized through a crowd of people trying to throw him off a cliff, gave the blind sight, multiplied the food to feed the thousands, and commanded the sea and the wind.
We believe there are literally many allegorical passages in the Word of God like Revelation 17.(are you paying attention)
We believe John literally described what he saw in Revelation 1:16
We hope one day you will see that the Word of God is trustworthy
penned continues to put out positions not held by the people she disdains, and imploring her to stick to the truth doesn't seem to be something she is willing to do. So, with apologies to all the good people here who believe in Covenant theology and Amillennialism I am going to throw the ball back in her court.
we believe that God literally spoke the world into existence and that Genesis 1 is not an allegory.
we believe the children of Israel literally crossed the Red Sea on dry ground, not that it just some symbolic passage that spoke of moving on in difficult times.
we believe the walls of Jericho literally fell to the ground and the sun literally stood still in the days of Joshua not that it was an allegory of overcoming sin and looking on the bright side.
we believe that David literally killed Goliath with his own sword after using a stone and a slingshot to take him down not that it was just an allegory about how to overcome giants in our lives.
We believe God literally left heaven and took on flesh, lived a perfect sinless life, was crucified, buried, rose again and ascended to His current position of our great high priest Who ever lives to make intercession on our behalf, not that the story was just symbols and dark sayings.
You do know that this is not a church but a forum where you can share your thoughts. BMC is free to share her thoughts and insights as part of fulfilling exhort one another daily. She is not in violation of any Scripture.
Haven't met and you cannot produce a dispensationslist that believes or practices what you said in your last post penned. They are a figment of the imagination of the websites from which you get your inaccurate information

So good to hear from you dear sister Ladybug and thank you so much for very kind and gracious words. I want you to know I still keep you, by God's grace, in my thoughts and prayers.
I had actually bit my tongue, so to speak, and even wrote but not posted replies to sister jpw but I guess the cult part crossed the line. I count jpw as a sister beloved and understand her frustration with those who don't see things your way, but dispensationalism is not the root of all evil. It has more than its share of problems but not to the extent that has been portrayed by her in these forums.
God bless you sister ladybug, I love your comment about Christ being all. We all need to be more like Him, more in love with Him, walk as those who are crucified with Him, and grow in the grace and knowledge of Him daily. I know I fail Him far too often. This time of year as we think of His passion, His death, and His glorious resurrection, it humbles us to be able to say Amazing grace that saved a wretch like me, I once was lost but now am found was blind but hallelujah now I see. To Him be the glory, God bless.

Thanks for your concern and kind words, brother Christopher. We are blessed by God and His graciousness and are doing well, thanks for asking.
Adriel, no one said that JW or Mormons were in any way orthodox. I was just showing John Yurich the inaccuracy of his statement and that just as you pointed out about the unorthodox views of these cults, the RCC also does not hold what we would call orthodox views. All three "worship" a God of their own making apart from Scripture. They all hold a mixture of truth and error but we all know a little leaven, leavens the whole lump.
This gets tiring. Dispensationalism, as held by believers, does not hold cult positions. The way you portray Dispensationalist beliefs cannot be found at dispensational sites, they only exist in sites that are, for lack of better term, anti-dispensational. (ie your recent Russia must be the enemy) In case you didn't realize it the word dispensation is found in the Bible. (Ephesian 1:10) The terms Covenant of Grace, Covenant of Works, and Covenant of Redemption are NOT found in the Bible yet you believe in them, does that make your thinking a cult? Supralapsarianism is simply man made doctrine about something that no man witnessed, it is pure speculation.
You are slandering thousands of God's people just because they don't view the Scriptures the same way you do. I am not interested in defining or defending dispensationalism. You don't base your opinion of these believers about their faith by talking to them, so you believe the inaccuracies that others spread about them.
John McCain was raised Presbyterian (CT) and BHO was no dispensationalist, neither is Trump. You are free to spread your inaccuracies about the dispensationalists and misrepresent their doctrine, but these people are your brothers and sisters in the Lord. (I John 4:20)
John Yurich USA wrote: No JW or Mormon can state "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God" as they do not believe that Jesus is God. But every practicing Catholic believes that statement about Jesus being the Lord and only begotten Son of God. That statement is in the Catholic Catechism.
care to take that back, here are statements from first a Mormon website and then a Jehovah Witness website
"What We Believe Jesus Christ Is the Only Begotten Son of God"
Just like Conner stated about Roman Catholicism, they do a bait an switch and give you their made up version of the Lord that follows their doctrine. So the fact that Catholics say the believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God has the same merit as a Mormon or Jehovah Witness stating the same. It is still replacing the true Christ with One of their own making.
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Titus 1
Hillary was so unpopular that, unlike Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump, she could not garner large crowds either at campaign stops or book signings.
Hillary was so unpopular the DNC had to rig the primaries for her to win her party's nomination. Any statement insinuating that the American people really wanted Hillary is just not accurate. Trump was protrayed as the biggest buffoon to ever win a party's nomination, and he still beat her in an electoral college landslide. \
Jim Lincoln wrote: UPS, and Trump only won because he carried Texas! --http://tinyurl.com/glkf9mx What you say is partially true, UPS, from this 6-letter word site. .
That would be true if Texas were the only state Trump needed for a win. It wouldn't have mattered if he got Texas but had lost Michigan and Wisconsin. Snopes acknowledges you need to carry several states to win the electoral college but you could win the so called popular vote with just a few. The so called popular vote was going to be close regardless of the candidates, the only thing that gave Hillary the margin of victory in the it is that large blocks of liberal live in a condensed areas. Trump's county vote showed he was popular all over the country except for a few liberal conclaves, Hillary was just the opposite. She lost, twice, because she is not and has never been popular with the American people. Thus implying she was the people's choice is just an attack on Trump and the fact that most Americans wanted him to change things in D.C.
Again, the point is moot because the campaigns would have been run completely different if you had to win the most votes to win the election, even Snopes states this.
Jim Lincoln wrote: The majority of people accepted Hillary Clinton.
Clinton won California by 4.2 million votes and New York by 1.6 million, meaning that across 48 of the 50 states, Trump was the victor by about 3 million votes in the "popular vote". Even if you include New York, he was the "popular vote"winner by more than a million votes.
Trump's 'landslide': 2,623 to 489 among U.S. counties That is 84% of the U.S. electorate by county.
The main reason Hillary had more of the "popular vote" was because liberal heavily populated California gave that to her. (leaving out vote fraud, dead people and illegals voting, which may also be the margin she has in the "popular" vote) One state does not equate to winning the popular vote of the entire nation. She was far LESS popular than Trump. He won nearly twice as many states.
Had the election been about the "popular vote" the campaigns would have been run differently, so Jim from Lincoln's point is meaningless.
She won the numerical vote but lost the nation, which is why Jim shouldn't be criticizing President Trump by falsely alleging that most Americans wanted Hillary. The truth is most Americans rejected Hillary and that is why she didn't win the White House in two failed tries
The Bible should not only be read but meditated upon, memorized, and obeyed. We can ingest it through sermons, listening to it, reading good Christian works, exhortation and fellowship with other, believers, internet access even television broadcasts. Our main concern is that we be not forgetful stony ground hearers but doers of its precepts and principles as the Holy Spirit uses it to mold us into the image of Christ.

Do Christians hate the Jews so much until they will not go to Israel in mass numbers and in their closed neighborhoods here in America and give them the Gospel? When you really hate someone you stay as far away from them as you can. Right? They need to be converted.
pretty sure Israel doesn't allow Christian missionaries you can only get in on a work visa.
