  1. So within the Godhead there is the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. Was Jesus always the Son of God, or did He become the Son of God when He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary? And when the term Son of God is used is it meaning Jesus is the Son of God the Father? Also, when someone affirms that Jesus is the Son of God are they saying that Jesus is the Son of God the Father? Edit: Just to make clear I'm aware that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are God and all three are eternal as one God, none being created.
  2. I guess I wanted to make sure my wording was accurate.
  3. No, I guess I just have a thick skull, if that's the right way to put it. I actually emailed gotquestions.org this question and was told yes, but was still having trouble with it. I revisited my original email to them and they said yes, so I guess this thread is unnecessary now.
  4. Would it be correct to say that Jesus received the punishment for our sins?
  5. If you don't mind answering this question, what part of my post were you referring to?
  6. That "No" was directed toward my second question, right?
  7. I think maybe I just want to leave it right here at the moment. I edited my previous post by the way (more than once if I'm correct).
  8. I don't know if I've ever gotten into things that have to do with the occult but I was interested in lucid dreaming when I was younger, read the Gospel of Thomas and put some thought into that, and did other things that were messed up (some that were really messed up, or maybe all of them were). I've had some experiences.
  9. I've been dealing with things that might be demonic (maybe even demonic possession), so stressing needlessly, I don't know about that. But what you're saying is that believing Jesus paid for my sins by dying for them is a sufficient belief? I don't need to go any further than that?
  10. So believing Jesus paid for my sins by dying for them is a sufficient understanding of how Jesus paid for my sins? Do I need to believe anything else about how He paid for my sins?
  11. I might just be looking for answers to the questions I asked.
  12. (I posted this on another Christian forum and I'm reposting it here) In 1 Corinthians 15:3 (NIV) it says, For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, Is believing that Jesus paid for my sins by dying for them, that He rose from the dead, and that He is Lord enough to be saved? I'm trying to work through my salvation, please tell me anything else I should believe. Also, is believing that Jesus paid for my sins by dying for them a sufficient understanding of how Jesus paid for my sins? Is there more to it? Do I need to know exactly how Jesus paid for my sins?
  13. Isn't John 3:16 clear? If you can believe in Jesus how could you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit?
  14. I was asking who the Lord is here. Here's another question. In this verse, are the words "The Lord" referring directly to Jesus?
  15. Here's Jude 1:9, But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" Who is "The Lord" referring to in this verse?
  16. Here's Hebrews 6:13-20, 13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” 15 And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. Can someone explain to me in layman's terms what's being communicated in verse 18 (specifically, "so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie")?
