Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

This podcast seeks to provide the tools necessary to properly handle the Scriptures, to expose the false presuppositions that drive false doctrines, and to train students in the consistent application of these tools to the foundational doctrines of Christianity. Rather than defending the theological traditions handed down by Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, or modern Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism. The aim is to instill the absolute necessity of handling the Scriptures objectively regardless of where that might lead theologically and to get back to the pristine Christian Faith as taught by Jesus and His Apostles. It thus becomes absolutely crucial that the Old Testament Scriptures are handled as Jesus and his Apostles did by adhering to 8 principles of interpretation: 1. The original Scriptures are infallible in the original languages. 2. Hebrew and Greek grammar cannot be violated or ignored, but must guide interpretation. 3. Interpret within the historical situation, culture, and literary context. 4.Interpret the text literally unless compelling evidence demands non-literal interpretation. 5. Interpret progressively, with newer revelation always complimenting older revelation. 6. Reject as "illogical" all doctrines that require holding mutually exclusive ideas. 7. All accepted doctrines must be consistent with God's revealed character and with all other true doctrines. 8. When possible, trace modern doctrines back to the source to see when, where, and why they originated.

3: The Second Death - Permanent destruction or eternal suffering

1/11/2019
More
For the salary of sin is death but the gift of God is permanent life in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23). What exactly is death according to this verse? Some say it is spiritual, but what does that mean exactly? Some also say it is punishment eternal and infinite, never ending and constant suffering. Others say it is complete and total obliteration and its results are permanent. How does the Bible itself define death? To answer that question we must first understand death in light of life which is...

2: The State of the dead_Common objections

1/11/2019
More
Following on from the topic “The State of the dead – Conscious or Asleep” which looked to show that man is an integrated whole consisting only of flesh and blood. He was dust and God inspired that dust and he became a living soul. He is not consisting of a physical body possessed by an immortal metaphysical soul. Rather he dies and the breath inspiring his body returns to God who will put it back at the end of the age when the dead are resurrected either to life or to destruction. There are...

1: The State of the dead_Conscious or Asleep

1/11/2019
More
There is a long held belief that man has an immortal soul or perhaps better understood as a “ghost being” or a metaphysical form that goes on into perpetual life after the body dies or loses its animation. To properly understand the state of the dead, be it a conscious or unconscious state, we must first develop an understanding on what man is made of. That is, we have to fairly examine the components that make up man and woman, which will lend itself to further exploration on what the Bible...

5: Part 4 The Son of God is King and Judge

11/14/2018
More
www.scripture-elevated.com Sometimes we neglect to grasp the reverence that exists in the word ‘Christ’. We use it so often that it has almost become a second name for Jesus. The word ‘Christ’ is transliterated from the greek word ‘Christós’ which is equivalent to ‘mâshı̂yach’ in Hebrew transliterated as ‘Messiah’ in English. These words simply mean ‘one who is anointed’ or in other words one who is chosen by God usually as high priest or king. To help develop a concrete understanding of...

4: Part 3 The Son of God, gives life through his blood

11/14/2018
More
www.scripture-elevated.com Abraham’s faith and obedience to the Lord is inspiring. More specifically when he was tested by the Lord in Genesis 22 to offer up his son Isaac as a sacrifice onto the lord. Abraham’s response to his son’s question, “look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” would later after thousands of years be a reality for God himself. To help grasp a deeper understanding of Christ sacrifice on the cross and how eternal life flows from it, this...
