Basic Christian teaching

Post by twin spin on Fri Apr 01, 2011 3:20 am

God is three in one or a Diety aka (Trinity) (Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 14:16-17; John 10:30,17:11, 21; *Colossians 2:9;* 1 Peter 1:2).

The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 2:11-12; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

There is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6, 8; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:5-6; Galatians 4:8-9).


Other truths about God :

  • infinite and eternal. He has always been God (Psalm 90:2; Genesis 21:33; Acts 17:24).
  • immutable. He does not change (James 1:17; Malachi 3:6; Isaiah 46:9-10).
  • omniscient or "knows all things" (Acts 15:18; 1 John 3:20).
  • omnipotent or "all powerful" (Psalm 115:3; Revelation 19:6).
  • omnipresent or "present everywhere" (Jeremiah 23:23, 24; Psalm 139).
  • sovereign (Zechariah 9:14; 1 Timothy 6:15-16).
  • holy 1 Samuel 2:2; Joshua 24:19; Psalm 99:9; Isaiah 43:3; Revelation 4:8
  • just or "righteous" (Psalm 19:9, 116:5, 145:17; Jeremiah 12:1)
  • jealous (Joshua 24:19)
  • love (1 John 4:8
  • true (Romans 3:4; John 14:6)
  • wrath against unbelief (John 3:36; Romans 1:18; Romans 12:19; Ephesians 5:6; Revelation 14:10)

About sin:

  • All people have sinned (Romans 3:23, 5:12)
  • Sin separates us from God (Isaiah 59:2)
  • Sinful from conception (Psalm 51:5)
  • Makes all our righteous acts like filthy rages (Isaiah 64:6)
  • Sinful mind is hostile to God (Romans 8:7)
  • Sinful mind does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so (Romans 8:7)
  • The result of sin .. death [physical and spiritual] (Romans 6:23)

About Jesus:

  • Jesus Christ is God (John 1:1, 14, 10:30-33, 20:28; Colossians 2:9; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 1:8
  • Jesus is fully God and fully man (Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
  • Jesus was sinless (1 Peter 2:22; Hebrews 4:15)
  • Jesus fulfilled all the OT prophecies (Luke 24:44)
  • Jesus is the only way to God the Father (John 14:6; Matthew 11:27; Luke 10:22).
  • Jesus dwells in you through faith (Ephesians 3:17)
  • **Jesus died for the sins of each and every person in the world (1 John 2:2; 2 Corinthians 5:14; 1 Peter 2:24) ** aka "objective justification"

God's plan of salvation:

  • Salvation is a free gift of God (Romans 4:5, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 John 1:8-10)
  • Salvation is by faith not by works (Romans 3:26-28; Romans 4:13-19; Galatians 2:16; Galatians 3:8-26

  • Salvation will be for whoever believesJesus died for your personal sins (John 3:16; John 3:36; John 6:40; John 6:47 and many more)
  • Salvation will be for those who only believe in Jesus Christ before they die (Acts 4:12)
  • Salvation will be in heaven for eternity with Him (John 5:24; John 6:40; Romans 10:4)
  • Salvation will be based on being declared "just, righteous" perfect, holy" because of faith by God himself (Acts 13:39; Romans 5:9; Romans 8:33; Galatians 2:16


God's view of unbelief :

  • Those who reject Jesus Christ, before they die, are condemned already (John 3:18)
  • Those who reject Jesus Christ, after they die, will go to hell forever (Mark 3:29; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8

Hell:

  • Hell is a place of punishment (Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 19:20)
  • Hell is eternal (Matthew 25:46)
  • A place designed for the Devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41)
  • Is where the unbeliever (those who God calls liars) are sent (Matthew 25:41; 1 John 5:10)

The Bible:

  • is the "inspired" or "God-breathed," Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
  • itself tells us not to expect any other (Isaiah 8:20, Revelation 22:18, 19)
  • Is sufficient for salvation (John 20:31)
  • Any other "gospel" is not from God (1 Corinthians 15:2; 2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6; Galatians 1:8-9)

You ever been to GotQuestions? It's a great site to do research. They have explained over 266 000 questions about the Bible and it has been translated to over 150 languages.

See an example list here 'questions about salvation'

http://www.gotquestions.org/questions_salvation.html

and one of the questions answered "what does is mean to be a born again Christian"

Finn,

I haven't heard of that site before (not surprising since there are so many). Though I may disagree with certian specific answers, it is good to know that many are reaching out to the lost. As one of the q\a stated: Though there will be 'few' that will be in heaven, there still will be multitudes".

For my go to I usually go to [url=http://www.wels.net/what-we-believe]http://www.wels.net/what-we-believe
