A Great God

God is great their is nothing He can not do, and He loves us mankind I know He created us but many a time He could have destroyed us all and we would have deserved it, but instead He offers us Eternal life oh praise His holy name, and all we got to do is to believe in Him, I think we did all right.

"Francis,   Perhaps, but there are many tests that we are put under, and I do not think any of them will take us from our saviour's hand.  There are many activities and practices that as christians we are called to.  And Baptism…"

"My sentiments exactly, David. Brian mentioned the practice of substitutionary baptism. Imagine if someone did that for you, and you then found yourself standing at the pearly gates. Peter walks up to you and says: “Hello, can I help…"

"Brian, I hear what you saying in regard to the patriarchs. Now I may be splitting hairs here, but they were under a different era in God’s plan for man. They all lived pre-Christ. We live post-Christ. In any case some of them are mentioned as…"

"The repentance issue is my principle objection to infant baptism.  John "preached the baptism of repentance for remission of sins", and those he baptized confessed their sins.  Repentance is necessary for salvation, and…"

Brian Guiley replied to Francis Toner's discussion 'Water baptism'
"For myself, one of the key rationales behind why baptism is not a necessary condition of salvation, is that the patriarchs of israel are indicated as saved, by faith, and they were not baptized.  Faith is the only necessary condition of…"

Good points. What does the Bible mean? What does the Bible declare in simple straightforward language? Those who took up the pen had an intended sense or meaning and that is what we seek to learn and understand. When we do, it is a cause for great joy (Nehemiah 8:5-12). What a passage!

While the word YOM may on occasion carry the meaning of an indefinite period of time (Gen. 2:4), the usage is rare but ALWAYS clear from the context. Meanwhile the normal meaning of the word is an ordinary rotational day, and most certainly this is the sense when the word is accompanied by ordinal descriptors, and indicated by other contextual clues such as a description of evening and morning.
