What was the purpose of the miracles that Jesus performed? Why, then, are all those today not cured? Does God work miracles through multitudes of often conflicting channels and frauds?
Jesus performed healing miracles. Faith healers today claim to imitate him. Interest in faith healing is at an all-time high. Does the Bible support the claims of faith healers? Are actual cures performed, and if so how can they be explained? A study of the Bible reveals several crucial differences between the cures reported in the Bible and those reported by faith healers today.
The whole pith and marrow of the religion of Christianity lies in the doctrine of “substitution,” and I do not hesitate to affirm my conviction that a very large proportion of “Christians” are not Christians at all, for they do not understand the fundamental doctrine of the Christian creed; and, alas, there are preachers who do not preach, or even believe this cardinal truth.

Who was Jesus Christ? Who Did Jesus Think He Was? What Did Jesus Think of Himself? Did he actually believe that he was the divinely appointed Messiah of the Jews, as the Gospels say he did? Did Jesus Think He was God?
This shows that there is no such doctrine as ‘Once saved, always saved.’ After we accept Jesus as our Savior and Redeemer and dedicating our lives to God, we have only entered the path to salvation, not finished the race.
I have 20 Facebook groups that I either own or am the main admin of, and none are on theology. Why? Three reasons really.
A study of many Bible passages shows that while the angels and God are at times distinguished from each other, they are with equal frequency, and in the same passages, merged into each other. How is this to be explained?
Life is animate being, and once it begins it inexorably leads to death. At least this is the case after the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden. (Gen. 2:17; 3:1-6) This will not be the case after Jesus' Second Coming. Death is a cessation of life, an irreversible state that is characterized by the cessation of all those processes that sustain life.
