Where Was the Proof Against Paul?

Act 25:7-8 And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove. While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all. Question: Why didn't the Jews just read Paul's letter's for proof? I thought his letters taught against the law? Perhaps they didn't know Paul wrote letters ;) But wait...

Jesus and the Interpreter. A modern-day christian helps Jesus get started.

Modern-day Christians know Jesus so well, that this one decided to travel back in time to help Jesus get his message across right from the start. Those people back in Jesus' time might have mistaken Jesus' own words as actually representing what he really meant! And we wouldn't want that! WARNING: This video is created and promoted by an athiest, demonstrating that the contradictions in modern doctrine creates an obstacle to those who actually read what the Bible says. Thus many do...

Good Friday is a Myth

Jesus Died On A Wednesday!! by Roy A. Reinhold I was quite blown away recently to hear Hal Lindsey state on his national radio program that he has come to believe that the scriptures show a Wednesday crucifixion. Perhaps you ought to examine the evidence and decide for yourself; be like the Bereans who were complimented in scriptures for examining the teaching of Paul in light of the scriptures to see if it was so. There is clear, concrete evidence in the scriptures for a Wednesday...

Can Believing mean NOT Doing?

"John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Believing means what? Few verses later... "John 3:20-21 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who DOES THE TRUTH comes to the LIGHT, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” Those who hate the light do not come to the light. But...

The Pharisees Were Lawless, and That Was Bad. Is Lawless Now Suddenly Good?

Halley’s Bible Handbook states that the: “Pharisees were the most numerous and influential of the religious sects of Jesus’ day. They were strict legalists. They stood for the rigid observance of the letter and forms of the Law, and also for the Traditions”. Is this view correct? Did the Pharisees stand for the observance of the law, did they keep the law, were they ‘legalists’, or instead did they prefer to keep traditions of men? The first mention of...

Heaven and Earth, and the Law of God

There are at least two reasons why Yeshua (Jesus) said that “not one jot or tittle of the Law of God” can change “till Heaven and Earth passes away.”  Have you ever considered this matter? ‎"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is...

A.D. First Century

A.D. First Century [Stephen] They are falsely claiming that Jesus (Yeshua) changed what was written in the Law of Moses and setting up false witnesses claiming that I teach the same!  They are going to illegally stone me based on these false accusations and false witnesses! (Acts 6-7) Several years later… [Paul] Wow, everyone keeps saying I teach against the Law of God as written by Moses.  It reminds me of what I saw happen to Stephen years ago. [James] ...

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness?

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness? Are you that sure that Paul teaches that God has abolished or changed His law? Do you attempt to discern what law (instruction) Paul is teaching on in context? Do you realize how many "laws" Paul mentions in his letters? Here are some "laws" Paul specifically mentions: "Law of God" "Law of Sin" "Law of Sin and Death" "Law of Faith" "Law of my mind" "Law of Righteousness" "Law of Christ" Have you ever wondered why Peter says Paul is...
