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 - - - - - - · 4,419 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 - - - - - - · 2,012 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,...

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?!

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...

Notes on Ephesians 5:8-10  

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.  (Eph_5:8-10 NKJV)

This is a continuation of our last study of Eph_5:3-7, and here begins with Paul's statement, "For...

Being Church - Part 6: Eph 5:3-7

Well, here it is. This particular blog has been one of the most difficult one to write, and one which I believe will test you. Despite the difficulties I had with it, yet I believe its something that has to be shared and discussed. But what is more important, is that everyone grows as a result of it. Let it speak to you, encourage you, and that you will b...

Being Church - Part 5: Eph 5:1-2

Well, here is the next part of my study notes on Ephesians. I don't know if this chapter of Ephesians is exciting or not, but I do know that what we are going to learn is going to be perhaps some of the most difficult parts in the Bible to get a grip of. I believe this will challenge you to the core, and perhaps there will be some conviction and changes g...

Bible Doctrines, Are they Really Relevant?

By APsit190, in Theology, Doctrine, Christian Life 16 March 2012 - * * * * * · 2,122 views

One of the things I like doing is asking thought provoking questions because I like my thinking  challenged. When theology is mentioned, there are a number of responses that come out, and some are positive, and others are . . . well . . ., "Boring!"  So, it sort of comes down to this, Is theology an academic jaunt in the park, or should it be...

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.
