A Tale of Two Creation Accounts -tmp(Gen 2:4)

Upon entering {{Genesis 2:4}} we encounter another problem. Why is the writer of Genesis giving us a second creation account? Didn?t he just cover all of creation in the first section? Why introduce this section with those same words?

The Genesis -tmp(Gen 1:1)

So when coming to {{Genesis 1}}, we are immediately impressed
upon the activity of God. The Bible makes no apologies as the main (if you will
and said) actor of the Bible is introduced with the mind-boggling words: “In
the beginning God”.

95 Theses

Martin Luther

Here are the 95 Theses Martin Luther nailed on the church
door at Wittenburg.

1. When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, “Repent”
(Matthew 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one
of repentance.

2. This word cannot be understood as referring to the
sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction,
as administered by the clergy.

3. Yet it does not mean solely inner repentance; such
inner repentance is worthless unless it produces various
outward mortification of the flesh.

4. The penalty of sin remains as long as the hatred of
self (that is, true inner repentance), namely till our
entrance into the kingdom of heaven.

5. The pope neither desires nor is able to remit any
penalties except those imposed by his own authority or that
of the canons.

The Cult of Intellectualism

by Keith Keyser

The following quote appeared in a recent discussion of dispensationalism by a well-known
Bible teacher: “Many of these men [i.e. early proponents of dispensationalism] were
self-taught in theology and were professionals in secular occupations. Darby and Scofield,
for example, were attorneys, and Larkin was a mechanical draftsman … Unfortunately some
of these early framers of dispensationalism were not as precise or discriminating as they
might have been had they had the benefit of a more complete theological education.
