APsit190's Theological Rants

A Few of My Favorite Things

By APsit190, 09 June 2019 - - - - - - · 2,103 views

Its been quite a while I put up a blog, and thought it was about time I did one. So I thought about what I liked, and how those things kind of impacted my life in both the way I think and do life.

Now, just to be clear, despite the fact the title of this blog is "A Few of My Favorite Things," is a title of that song from the movie, "Mary Poppins," it rea...

Americans Living In New Zealand

By APsit190, 23 April 2019 - - - - - - · 1,322 views

I realize that this is not an actual Theological Blog. In fact that is nowhere near or closely related to the Bible in any form, shape or size.

With that said, done and dusted, and gotten out of the way; Americans (those wacky people from the U.S.A) actually have immigrated to New Zealand. Amazing as it sounds, it's totally true.

Below is a story of an...

What is the Point?

Theology, Biblical Studies
I've been meaning to write on this question for some time, but have put it off because I've been unable to get my head around to formulate what I needed to write. I guess one can call this writer's block. There have been events in my life and things that I've witnessed, and also on books that I've read which triggered me into asking a question like this....

Predestination - What is it Suppose to be About?

By APsit190, in Doctrine, Theology 21 July 2014 - - - - - - · 5,094 views
Predestination. Its a word that is in the New Testament, and its a word that gets bandied about quite a bit, and who and what gets or doesn't get predestined is argued until the cows come home, and then even argued until after the cows have left the next day. The one thing which every theologian seems to agree about, is that it (seems) to have a lot to do...

The Blessing - How Important is It?

By APsit190, in Christian Life, Doctrine, Theology 23 March 2014 - - - - - - · 2,377 views

Currently my pastor is doing a series in Genesis, and has recently completed three messages on Jacob, and revolved around him being (for a lack of a better way of describing it) a con artist in duping his older brother to give him his inheritance, and duping his father by pretending to be Esau, and taking his blessing.

As he shared with us these things,...

Being Church, Being a Body

Pauls Letters, Theology and 2 more...
If you go through the studies series in Ephesians I've posted, the one main theme you will notice is that its all about how god purposed us to be church, to be a body. This being a body   is something that is to be taken in four ways:
It is to be taken literally , in that as an actual body, as in a torso
It is to be taken spiritually , in that it's not a...

Being Church Part 9, Ephesians 5:21-33

Pauls Letters, Theology and 2 more...
We are now at the end of Ephesian Chapter 5, and one in which I had a great deal of difficulty with simply because it dealt with, what I like to call, the dicky issue of submission. However, I got through it mainly because I avoided the old age saying "women have to submit to men," or "women have to submit to their husbands.

The way I decided to deal wit...

Law, Faith, Grace. Which way to go?!

Old Testament, New Testament and 2 more...
Dear old Clint, aka, cbb1962   has been going on going on a fair bit about adhering to the law and etc. His posts have been somewhat quite disturbing because the emphasis he places on the law has made me wonder where faith and grace fits in all of this, or does faith and grace fit in what Clint says, or is it left right out?

Clint goes on about the Law o...

The Dark Side of Calvinism by George Bryson - A review

Theology, Calvinism
Before I begin this review, I need to make some disclaimers in order that one knows where I stand and what I am both theologically and as a Christian. I guess this shows what my biases are and are not.

Firstly, before e-Sword, I didn't really know what my theological bents were. I am Pentecostal, but whether I was Calvinist, Arminianist, or whatever, I...

Being Church Part 8, Ephesians 5:15-21

Its been some time that I've posted any notes on Ephesians, and thought it was about time that I put something up. I've just recently completed this part. I believe this part deals with the practical issues of everything that Paul was talking about in the previous verses of Chapter 5, and he brings things to a head in this section of Eph 5.

I trust, as y...

About Apsit 190's Theological Rants

Theological Rants are mostly about stuff in the Bible I believe. Its also a blog for sharing my thoughts that the Bible talks about, and how I think they can be applied to our lives.

Using the word, "Rants," is not to undermine anything the Bible says, nor is there to undermine or disparage what anyone else believes. That said, it is my soapbox, and with that to express the passion of my heart for my love of the Word of God.

What you can expect to see in this blog are thoughtful studies in the Scriptures and articles that I find interesting. So, with that, I trust you will enjoy my Theological Rants, and rant and rave with it in your comments.
