O APOCALIPSE - Igreja em Porto Alegre * Estudo ministrado por Moysés Moraes As escrituras nos dizem que o tempo presente terminará com uma guerra sem precedentes, de destruição, de apostasia da fé, até que o Senhor Jesus Cristo retorne para tirar da terra os crentes vivos, como trará em sua companhia os que morreram na fé. Quando desaparecer da terra o testemunho da verdadeira Igreja seguir-se á um período breve, mas intenso, quando toda a ira de Satanás será liberada sobre a terra. Mathematical Probability that Jesus is the Christ Long-time listeners know, that in addition to broadcasting this program, I pastor a tiny church, manage a computer bulletin board, and a national conference on the network, called BIBLE BELIEVERS. Most of our programs, feature current comments from the BBS; often questions and answers. I'd like share a message from the InterNET by David Williams, Computer Systems Manager, for the Mathematics Faculty, at the University of Newcastle.

What Dreams May Come Matheson stated in an interview, "I think What Dreams May Come is the most important (read effective) book I've written. It has caused a number of readers to lose their fear of death – the finest tribute any writer could receive."[1] In an introductory note, Matheson explains that the characters are the only fictional component of the novel. Bart Ehrman Answered Bart Ehrman is perhaps the most influential skeptical New Testament scholar in North America. Several of Ehrman's books have become standard textbooks in many universities. His skepticism is not well-founded, however. This interview features New Testament scholar Mike Licona who answers a number of Ehrman's major contentions. Stream and download options. Also included is a document with discussion questions for group leaders to be used in tandem with the individual segments.

Strategies for Apologetics - Thinking Christian Book Review Brian Auten of Apologetics 315 has just posted a telephone interview we did together recently. Brian’s website is one of the best for an abundance of resources and training in apologetics. Honoré de Balzac Honoré de Balzac (French: [ɔ.nɔ.ʁe d(ə) bal.zak]; 20 May 1799 – 18 August 1850) was a French novelist and playwright. His magnum opus was a sequence of short stories and novels collectively entitled La Comédie humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the 1815 fall of Napoleon Bonaparte. Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature. He is renowned for his multifaceted characters, who are morally ambiguous. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists such as Marcel Proust, Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Eça de Queirós, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustave Flaubert, Benito Pérez Galdós, Marie Corelli, Henry James, William Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, and Italo Calvino, and philosophers such as Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. Balzac suffered from health problems throughout his life, possibly due to his intense writing schedule.

7 Reasons to Memorize Scripture There are few spiritual disciplines more rewarding than memorizing Bible passages. Here are a few: For fellowship with God The way God chiefly communicates with us today is through His written Word. Criterion of multiple attestation The criterion of multiple attestation or independent attestation is a tool used by Biblical scholars to help determine whether certain actions or sayings by Jesus in the New Testament are from Historical Jesus. Simply put, the more independent witnesses that report an event or saying, the better. See Criteria of authenticity and the Historical Jesus. Examples of its use[edit] The gospels are not always independent of each other. Matthew and Luke, for example, probably had Mark's gospel sitting right in front of them when they were writing.

Christ and the Human Condition Introduction Early in the book of Job, Eliphaz the Temanite declares that “man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward” (5:7). Whether it’s the trouble that befalls us as we’re simply minding our own business or the trouble we bring upon others (or even ourselves), difficulties, sin, and suffering seem to plague us wherever we turn. Just think for a moment about some of the natural evils which afflict the human race. This class of evils includes both natural disasters like hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, and earthquakes, and diseases like cancer, leukemia, Alzheimer’s and ALS.

Biblical inerrancy Biblical inerrancy is the doctrine that the Bible, in its original manuscripts, is accurate and totally free from error of any kind; that "Scripture in the original manuscripts does not affirm anything that is contrary to fact".[1] Some equate inerrancy with infallibility; others do not.[2][3] Biblical inerrancy should not be confused with Biblical literalism. A formal statement in favor of biblical inerrancy, the "Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy", was published in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society in 1978.[4] The signatories to the "Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy" assert that since there are no extant original manuscripts of the Bible, those which exist cannot be considered inerrant. The signatories also maintain that the existing manuscripts are faithful copies of the original manuscripts.
