Welcome to Theologia!
Starting as a collection of papers by Mark Horne several years ago, Theologia has slowly expanded to include works by a variety of authors. You will find all of our content under the various categories to the left.

Jesus was Baptized for the same reason we are… Baptism is a witness of the declaration of God to the authority he ordained in Christ, prophesied in Genesis and believed on throughout antiquity. Baptism is a work that follows effectual faith (real faith) Baptism is not in any way essential for justification from transgressions (salvation). It is a work of obedience AFTER salvation. Calvin , as Rich correctly stated,...

Galatians 3. Also, personal opinions do not belong in the word of God. Listen to God’s voice and be led of the Holy Spirit. If He says wear a robe, wear it. If He does not, then don’t wear it. Be blessed and Grow in Grace.

I find this interpretation interesting. Do you have any other resources where I can study it a little more? I would also like to see more Old Testament texts that inform us on the issue.

Dear Rich, your article is well articulated, so impressive that I have to share your ideas with my wife. It has made our day after such life changing service on this Pentecost sunday. My wife just said Biblical theology is studing the bible as t is the bible; how would repond to this? Thanks Egbule, Emmanuel Metu Ph.D student IMSU Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria

Thank you for this article. It has helped me. I am going through a situation where I have read all the scriptures regarding God’s forgiveness yet was not secure. As I went for a walk, the Lord let me know the root of my problem is I won’t forgive myself. One commenter is correct. Satan is our accuser. But Jesus is our Advocate. And in between the two is us. We do have a mind and...
- May 24, 2012 at 10:54 pm :: Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit? :: Daniel Mayo
For those that are confused about mocking the holy ghost, I think I finally figured it out. What you should not do is backslide from doing the right thing purposely, that will leave a permanent backslid-en heart. It’s the refusal to acknowledge god’s power in Christ, they also turn their backs as I said before. I know that the whole thing is complicated, but it’s also personal to God in the...

Rich, I know this post is almost a year after most of the posts were made above. I am currently taking a Research course in OT Theology (OTT) required in a PhD program. I took Research in New Testament Theology (NTT) in 2010, so the terminologies and methodologies are familiar to me. My background is conservative (American Church of Christ). My professor favors the Canonical Method and actually studied under Dr....

Now im 31 but when I was about 23 I cursed the Holy Spirit really bad. I just got out of prison not too long ago. I was locked up for 5 years and 7 months and everyday that I was locked up I felt like crap. I even had dreams that I was going to hell and they was so real and terrifying. I felt like crying my eyes out. Most days I would drag around feeling scared and depressed. I would read the same scripture...

Pr. Horne, aside from 4.16.30, where else does Calvin address p-comm? Also, I’ve been listening to Ken Gentry’s response to you on p-comm. Have you two ever met and buried the hatchet?
- March 4, 2012 at 2:04 pm :: God’s Promises to the Jews :: Mike
Very Greek in thinking…devoid of Hebrew thought (the very essence of which God used to bring forth His promises). Do we ever ask how a nation so small continues to impact the world so dispraportionately? Even today’s world. Think about it! There are only 14 million Jews in the entire world and their contributions to politics, business, art, philanthropy and so on continue to shine above gentile contributions....
- March 2, 2012 at 11:20 am :: Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit? :: Dillon
I did blaspheme the Holy Spirit out loud one time out of anger! And I feel truly empty and I feel like a looser! But I remember my love for Christ and His Spirit! I have known them! Now I find myself constantly in the Word and The Spirit of God comes to me all the time! Even though I said curse words to the Spirit out loud before! So I am still not sure what all this means for myself? But I do find myself horrified...
