This article will extensively examine dozens of Scriptures that spell out what characteristics and qualities make a person a fake Christian. As the reader learns to identify a fake Christian, they will also learn what it means to be a true, faithful Christian.
Without carefully and attentively studying the Bible, many people believe they know what it says about homosexuality. However, their answers are inconsistent or in conflict. Some say that the Bible is indeed antigay. Others argue that the Biblical command to “love your neighbor” gives approval of any and all sexual lifestyles and that homosexuality is simply an alternative lifestyle.
Many scholars mean by this term that the Hellenized person actively promoted Greek culture and paganism. Some, on the other hand, mean a Greek-speaking person impacted by Greek culture, morals, and paganism in that they only lived or worked in such a community.
Even though Adam and Eve were created to live forever, they were not immortal. This is not really semantics, where the two different Greek words basically mean the same thing. Thus, immortality involves more.
Eternal security, also known as "once saved, always saved," is the belief that from the moment anyone becomes a Christian, they will be saved and will not lose salvation. Once a person is truly "born of God" or "regenerated" by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, nothing in heaven or earth "shall be able to separate (them) from the love of God" (Romans 8:39), and thus nothing can reverse the condition of having become a Christian. Is this true? Hebrews 6:4-6 is a major proof text either way.
The Millennium is the 1,000-year period of peace and righteousness following the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, who will reign over the earth during that time. Is this true?
Shortly before Christ’s return, the devil will lose his status as accuser of the brothers. This will advance the kingdom of God, bringing joy to heaven but grief to earth. When does war break out in heaven and Michael the archangel cast Satan out of heaven? This will be the most in-depth study of this that you will find.
If we are to understand this, we first should free ourselves of the notion that “perfection” must always be unlimited, all-embracing, and suggesting supreme excellence in the most slight aspect.
Many scholars attempt to relate Paul’s reference to the third heaven to the early Jewish literature that there were stages of heaven, “even 955 heavens.” However, we certainly do not depend on early rabbinic views, as this view is not found in the Scriptures.
7:13, 14 Son of Man. The Messiah (cf. 9:27), Christ is meant; He often designated Himself by this phrase (Matt. 16:26; 19:28; 26:64). “The clouds of heaven” are seen again in Revelation 1:7. Here, He is distinct from the Ancient of Days, or Eternal One, the Father, who will coronate Him for the kingdom (2:44). The picture of old age is not that of being feeble; rather, it highlights God’s eternality and divine wisdom to judge (cf. 7:9, 10). - John F. MacArthur,
