    Exactly. The point being, that the delusions and deceptions will be so strong that if true born again Christians were still around, even they would have faith shaking moments.

    Is a Christian who believes baptism is necessary for salvation not saved?

    With all due respect, I don't believe TT misunderstood you or abandoned the context. He merely used a truncated version of your OP to illustrate the contradiction inherent in the question. In other words, you answered your own query. Regardless, I think we all know what you're driving at... A...

    Got First Twitter ban

    Seems a bit arbitrary to me. Knowing myself as I do, I would have appealed the appeal and demanded they spell out exactly what it was that was "hateful conduct." If they're that petty, it won't be long before banning becomes permanent. :sad ETA- This is ironic "Twitter’s mission is to give...

    Pre Wrath Blues

    Regarding Matt 24, the context (as has been pointed out) is key to understanding. The trouble is a lot of folks insert a change of context where none exists in order to place the rapture in the verses. The timing of events is likewise to be properly discerned. We had a monster thread over at RR...

    The Rapture: Why?

    God has a number in mind. The number no doubt will coincide with a day and time on our calendar that is unknown to us.

    The "other" gap theory

    This is one of a very few problems I had with Jack's teachings. IIRC, he wasn't dogmatic about the gap theory, he just thought it was plausible. Personally, I believe in a literal 6 day creation. We're talking about what God can do. And with our limited understanding I think we have to take the...
