Put.2- Augustinian ism; A Strong Delusion

Edward O’Hara As I said in my last article I will show here more details on the need for the atonement from the events in the garden… and more. One thing we must do as Christians are we must believe what the Bible plainly says so we can know God and what it is that God has done for us in salvation. Because when we believe what we have been told without confirming its truthfulness, as Paul commended the Bereans for doing in Acts17.11, from the plain teaching from the plain language in our Bible, we will set ourselves up for being deceived. So I won’t continue through the plain language in the Genesis account along with some other scriptures to see if that has happened. And how knowing the truth from what the Bible plainly says can fix that if…

Put.3- Sin Is Not Imputed When There Is No Law- Rom.5:13

Edward O’Hara Tue 12/31/2019 12:56 PM… When you read those words what comes to mind? Do you think it means that only sometimes sin is not imputed to them? Or maybe your thinking Paul really didn’t mean what he wrote the way it sounds because of course their sin was imputed to them, because you’re sure that’s why they died? But, is that what the scripture says? And whose sin is Paul speaking about? The sins of only some of the people who lived before Moses? Or all of the people who lived before Moses? The fact is that when Paul wrote these critically important words, he had just described the events concerning the sin of Adam and the effects it brought to all mankind and the sin of all men after him that lived before Moses. So he was most…

What Does The Bible Say Really Happened In The Garden?

That’s what the prophets said, right? Yes, that’s what they said. But, you never see them saying it is for the forgiveness of the sin of Adam, do you? Of course not. Because they never said that men are held accountable for another’s sins. In fact, Ez.18:20 says that it is only the soul that sinneth that shall die. And that the son will not bear the iniquity of the father. Edward O’Hara Sat 12/28/2019 11:03 PM Here is an enumerated list of what the Bible plainly says of the events in the garden.From Gen.1:26-301. God made man in His image and likeness.2. God made them male and female.3. God made them with free will and dominion on earth over what He made. And told them to be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth.From Gen.2:7-4. God made their bodies…

Why Context Is So Important Something Paul Says the Rest of the World(Gentiles) Did Not Have

By, Edward O’Hara, Fri 12/27/2019 12:24 PM… When reading the Bible we always need to remember who the letter we are reading from is written to. Because while the whole Bible is written for us. The whole Bible is not written to us. For example, Even though all believers can glean truth from it’s teaching, Hebrews is written to, well… Hebrews. So when reading letters like this we must always remember that these are written to people who had a covenant with God before Jesus came. Something Paul says the rest of the world(Gentiles) did not have. Eph.2:12.  So it was these people, and not Gentiles, to whom God said; “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the…

What Universalists And Calvinists Have In Common

Edward O’Hara Thu 12/26/2019 6:54 PM… The Calvinist(those who believe John Calvin’s teaching) believes that God chose who will go to heaven and who will go to hell before they were born. The Universalist believes that all men will be saved because God chose them before they were born. The Calvinist gets this from confusing what Paul taught about predestination in Rom.8 and what Paul taught in Rom.9. The Universalist gets this from confusing Paul’s message in Rom.5:18. In Rom.5:18 Paul says “Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” They believe this means that just as all are condemned in Adam because of his sin. So all are justified in Christ because of His sinlessness. Even though on the…
