Romans 7 and the Unregenerate Person’s Struggle

The struggle of the Christian to live a godly life while existing with a sinful nature in a fallen world has been the topic of many sermons, discussions and debates over the centuries. Many have found relevant content about this matter in Romans 7, though with two opposing positions on what Paul is actually teaching. Some find his discussion in Romans 7:14-25 as that of unregenerate man while others of the regenerate man. In this article, I will present my argument as to why the passage in question must be in reference to the unregenerate man, not the regenerate...

The Gender of the Holy Spirit: He, She or It?

There has been a movement within the church for many years now known as Feminist Pneumatology that is attempting to redefine the masculine Gender of the Holy Spirit.

John and the Synoptic Gospels: The Greek of Mark as a Primary Source

Though it is almost universally accepted among scholars that the Gospel of John was written after the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, there has been a lot of discussion and debate in regards to the relationship between John and the Synoptic Gospels. The views vary, with some insisting that John used the Synoptics while composing his gospel, some that he was only aware of them, and others that he neither used them nor was aware of them.

Only Those Who Have the Spirit of Christ Are Saved

But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (Rom 8:9 ASV). This verse clearly defines who is saved and who is not. He who has the Holy Spirit is saved, while he who does not have the Spirit is not saved. The Spirit of Christ is given to every true believer who places their trust in Christ upon the moment of their decision to trust upon him as their Lord and Savior. Receiving the Holy Spirit does not necessitate any type of outward sign or experience, but evidence of a true conversion...
