Give Up the Ghost

Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. No one killed Jesus.

Free Will vs. Willpower

Free will and willpower are not quite the same things. Free will is the ability to make choices while willpower is the ability to accomplish those choices within one's own power.

Forgiveness

Mat 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

The Law of Love

Great and Dreadful

Daniel 9:4 KJV And I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; How can the Lord be both Great and Dreadful? Let's use the analogy of... Continue Reading →
