Imputation

Imputation means to transfer something from one person to another. The best example of this in the Bible is in Romans 5. 12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” . Adam’s sinful nature and death by sin was imputed or transfered on to us. 17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore

Slavery and Philemon

In Paul’s writings on slavery, it’s assumed that being a slave is simply a fact of life. As a slave you were property of your owner and not considered a person. It wasn’t racial the way we think of slavery looking back to pre-civil war America, but anybody regardless of race can be a slave.

While many would agree with the above examples whether they’re Christian or not the politically correct

There are different ways of dividing the ages by different scholars, but the traditional way starts with Adam in the Age of Innocence. With the call of Abraham, God used Israel to reveal His plan to the world. God took a family to Egypt and they emerged as a nation. God revealed the Law through Moses and this is known as the dispensation of the Law from Moses to John the Baptist. Jesus is the Messiah that was prophesied all through the prophets, the

Women Pastors

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 1 Tim 2:12-13 (KJV) First of all, this passage is not based on whether or not a woman is more knowledgeable on the Bible than a man. There are a number of women more Biblically literate than many pastors leading churches. This is not based on how capable a woman is to lead the church in an administrative sense. Some women excel in high positions in government and business as
