Great Sermon! Without all 5 points of the doctrines of Grace, I don't see how you can believe in eternal salvation. I dont like the term once saved always saved either. I prefer eternal salvation. Ephesians 1, Chosen before the foundation of the world, loved us with a everlasting love. 2 Thess 2:13. I believe 2 Peter 2:20-22 is referring to apostate teachers. A knowledge without conversion.
Great Sermon! After reading the entire Chapter 2 Peter, Peter is referring apostate teachers that led people astray and eventually return back to their old ways verse 22. Verse 20 they had a knowledge, but I do not see any conviction. Salvation based just on knowledge without a true conversion will not stand. John Owen's book Apostasy from the Gospel is very good.
Great Sermon! I was unclear on a statement made near the end of this audio sermon. The speaker was talking about 1 Corinthians 6:16 where Paul said "he who joins himself to a harlot is one body with her for the two He says shall become one flesh". Perhaps I misunderstood what this speaker was saying, but he seemed to indicate that when a man and woman have sexual intercourse God joins them in a MARRIAGE. Is that what you believe or did I misunderstand? Please clarify. Thank you.
Great Sermon! Amazing how intolerant LBGTQI folks demand tolerance from everyone else; and have learned to manipulate the legal system to support their "rights" while suppressing free speech from others
Genders? I'm sorry to tell you but we need as Christians not to conform and to speak like the world. Like Gender nouns have gender but we humans have sex, are either male or female.I fix that on any forms I have to fill up. And Race I always put down HUMAN.
Great Sermon! 1 corinthians 11 9-10 is also an important verse to discuss. It's making it clear that woman was made for man and not angels and therefore women are to wear their hair long as a sign of this. If there wasn't a chance of women and angels mingling then why this clarification in Corinthians?
Great Sermon! The very title indiscriminately implied this was going to be a KJB comparison, and sure enough, as we've come to expect it turned into another KJB bashing session. It would be great to make this official and actually invite a gust speaker from the so called "kjv only" camp to offer salt and light to the lack of understanding from people who are not "kjv only". Sam Gipp would be a fantastic guest for you guys to invite on the show, please check into doing so, it would be amazing and wonderful to see if a fellowship could even be achieved by the Berean's in your studio with the "kjv only" camp. :-)
pt 3 Why wouldn't these demigod/mutant/hybridsapiens be found in the lineage of Jesus, to muck up the humanity of the Messianic hope? There are some who believe that was why the flood was needed (i.e., to keep Noah's human bloodine pure for Jesus). What if you are born of a person who was possessed and you're part angle? Seriously! On one hand your human parent is part of the corporately condemned in Adam, given many chances for salvation, and still saved even after you fall into sin. Meanwhile, the rest of your DNA is that of an inhuman kind that starts out with God's grace, but will lose it forever with no hope of redemption and be judged by the elect humans.¬† Would you be judged as a human or an angel? Did Christ die for them?¬†
When we see demons begging to be cast into pigs it seems that they need a body to posses if they hope to engage physically upon the earth, but it does not seem like they can make themselves a body to use et al.¬†
Anyway, I said that to say this: You have to overlook a lot more Scripture to presume Peter and Jude thought Gen 6 was about angels without calling anyone angles in Hebrew. It looks more like these particular sons of God belong to the line of humans after Seth.
Sorry, but that was a long dialog and with 3 opinions to be addressed.
part 2 Do spirits have flesh and bone?¬† Not as Jesus puts it in Luke 24:39, and if they somehow did have such bodies demons could pull off a faux resurrection and turn our Lord's resurrection into a pyrrich victory.
Do spirits have creative power, have DNA, or create seed, (and can they even reproduce after there own kind)?¬† Not according to Col. 1, Heb. 1, and John 1. That sovereignty belongs to Jesus.
Can anything reproduce anything not after its own kind? Not according to Gen 1.
Are we confident angels won't do this breeding today?¬†
Can a possessed man produce offspring such as the nephilim or a giants? Something often assumed by readers of Gen 6.
Were nephilim around during the mixed breeding or just a result of it? The text says that the fallen ones, whomever they are, were on the earth at that time and after, but it doesn't say they were the offspring of the sons of God and daughters of men, per se. The nephilim were possibly another demographic all together and were on the earth as well as the parties called the sons of God and the daughter of men like any other demographic.
Great Sermon! Aren't Gen 4, 5 & 6 supposed to be read together? If we ignore the unnatural chapter breaks we can see the mention of those calling on the name of the Lord. What are people whom worship God, namely the people of Israel, called by in Hosea 1? Sons of God.
It's a little off the topic, but why did you three abandon the part that Jude wrote about the unbelieving Egyptians (along with the angles and people of Sodom) as examples of "these" in hell?¬† All of whom defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries according to the following verse.¬†
Not that far off the topic is that we know, in the overall context of Scripture, Satan was not alone in abandoning God, so we cannot assume all the angles fell in Genesis 6 and/or that these are the only ones referred to by Peter or Jude.
Why was God only grieved over humans in Gen 6 and not grieved over the angelic kind being they are fallen ones (no pun intended by that being a literal translation for nephilim)? Seems like it's assuming they are angels when they're are not angelic.
At the heart of the topic we have to ask ourselves a few questions...
