According to Genesis 15:6, Abram did not buy righteousness with his faith. Rather, God gave Abram righteousness, which means right standing or acceptability before God.
We will briefly study the Biblical Theological beliefs of the Apostle Paul. Biblical theology is a discipline of Christian theology that restricts its study to the Scriptures, and it seeks to determine what the biblical writers said about the issue.
The Bible book of Genesis plainly states that God created humans as well as various animal and plant life. Theistic evolution suggests that Genesis is not ... Do people try to persuade you that creation is a legend and evolution is a fact? Should you believe them? Consider reasons to question evolution. Was life created or did it evolve? Make an informed judgment after examining evidence from the Bible and from recent scientific studies.
This question has stoked controversy among conservative Christians in recent times, but it has proved to be of little interest to theistic evolutionists (those who accept evolution as God’s mechanism in creation) and those rejecting Genesis as God’s inerrant Word. The debate has been primarily between young-and old-earth creationists.
The name Ἀπολλύων (Apollyōn) comes from ἀπόλλυμι (apollymi) which means “I destroy.” So the Greek term has the same meaning as the Hebrew Ἀβαδδὼν (Abaddōn), “Destroyer.”
The biblical doctrine of the created universe includes the certainty of its final redemption from the domination of sin. The finally redeemed universe is called “the new heavens and new earth.”
While it is widely held that all one hundred twenty in the Upper Room received the gift of tongues on the Day of Pentecost, Scripture nowhere says this. In fact, there is good evidence to indicate that the gift of tongues was limited only to the apostles or to those to whom they gave the gift.
The scientific evidence for creation is found in three different areas. First, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of the physical universe. Second, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of first life. Third, there is the scientific evidence for the creation of all basic life forms, including human beings.
There are two major views with regard to the time involved in Creation: the old earth view and the young-earth view. The latter believes the universe is no more than approximately 15,000 years old, while the former holds that it is probably about 15,000,000,000 years old.
There seems to be no way to actually prove how old the universe really is, either from science or from the Bible, for there are known and possible gaps in the biblical genealogies (see below). In addition, there are unprovable presuppositions in most, if not all, the scientific arguments for an old earth (see below); that is, an earth of millions or billions of years is biblically possible but not absolutely provable.
