    Jesus picked twelve. Judas killed himself and then the others gambled and chose the thirteenth. Paul claims that he was an Apostle; that is fourteen.

Apostleship is one of the five ministries set in the church, how many more got named to that group? Please show scriptures to support your answer. Religious traditions and histories hold no weight here. Only the scriptures, please. Also, what is the ministry of an Apostle and are the five ministries of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, all still valid today? Why do the majority of churches have only one guy doing everything? Thanks, everyone!

  • Can anyone give a single scripture?

    ... that says angels have wings? I can find where it speaks of cherubim having wings, but those do not count because scripture does not ever call them angels. Seraphim are never called angels, either. But they are called 'fiery flying serpents'!! Go figure, eh? Archangels don't have wings either, do they? Michael is called an... show more
    ... that says angels have wings? I can find where it speaks of cherubim having wings, but those do not count because scripture does not ever call them angels. Seraphim are never called angels, either. But they are called 'fiery flying serpents'!! Go figure, eh? Archangels don't have wings either, do they? Michael is called an arche-aggelos in Jude 1:9 and 1 Th 4:16 says that Jesus has the voice of the archangel when he descends with a shout ... but no mention of wings. Jesus is the exact image and representation of the father and the name, Michael, means 'one who is like God'; does that mean Jesus is Michael the arche-aggelos. The one who is like God and is his first, chief and principle messenger, still does not have wings, though. Does God have feathers? (Ps 17:8; 36:7; 61:4; 63:7; 91:4) And let us not forget the Spirit of God descending as a dove! No, I am not nor have I ever considered the teachings of the JW's. I was raised Roman Catholic, but then I got saved and now I am a 'Berean' at heart who questions everything. Please, if you respond use scripture and not empty religious doctrines, wives tales, fables or hearsay. Thanks!

I know this is pretty basic info for the younger generation, but I don't do a lot with computers and sure could use the help before I spend the money. Thanks for any and all info.

I would like to know if anyone has downloaded and used any of these apps and what they think of them in terms of true bible studying. What other features are included; How much did it cost; Can you work offline with the app!! etc. I have always used a KJV (because it is what Strong's concordance uses) and various other bible versions along with several other dictionaries and commentaries. I am having a difficult time finding even a simple app with the KJV and an interactive Strong's concordance. I am interested in your informed comments about the good and the bad regarding the i-pad apps. Blessings to all you who labor in the Word, whether in books or in electronic media!

  • Is there a drill chuck made to hold a # 57 drill bit?

  • How do you pronounce HOSNI?

Now it seems like those in the news are now pronouncing his name with a Long 'O' like the 'O' in hose! Is it an intentional American insult Like the Bush presidents pronouncing Sadam as, SAD'm or the Texan low brow use of I-raq & I-ran? I'm just wondering if people are trying to say it wrong on purpose or is it the correct way to pronounce HOSNI?

  • Do atheists understand that Religion and SPIRITuality should be non-issues with them?

    Atheists seem to protest too much for those proclaiming God does not exist. Shouldn't they ignore those who do believe in God? I think it is odd that they don't have their own group; do they want Fellowship? Are they jealous of us because we have a purpose (God) and they don't? It seems like they are always bitter and angry.

At what?!! I think we bring definition to their beliefs. Since all things find definition in their opposites, it rankles them that the very thing they deny is what gives them meaning?

    Paul throughout his writings consistently reminded us that (Romans 9:16) our election depends NOT UPON OUR WILL, but the MERCY of God! God kept hardening Pharaoh's heart and then He killed him in Red Sea! Some choice he had, huh? Judas was prophesied of in the Psalms - so somebody had to be him! That really sucks, eh?

  • Is our will more powerful than God's will? If He is ALL powerful; that leaves no room for our willfulness, eh?

    Why would God, any god, place a higher importance on man’s freedom than He would on the purpose and will for why He created them in the first place? Such a God would have to be a sadistic one knowing that He was creating people for not just destruction, but according to the traditional view, eternal destruction!

Hans Kung (1928 - ? ) is a Catholic priest, an eminent Swiss theologian, and a prolific author asked the question this way, “What would we think of a human being who satisfied his thirst for revenge as the church depicts God does with an eternal hell”? There’s simply no rational way to answer that! Explain to me how this shows for the moral goodness of God.
