Matthew 22:29 "But Jesus answered and said to them, 'You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures, or the power of God.'"
I stumbled upon an article that is about 200 years old, and in it there is a list of nine common errors that people fall into. I will seek to figure out and explain what the anonymous writer had in mind. I honestly don't know who wrote the article, so I can only guess why he included these errors in his list and ignored others, but I hope it will be an interesting experiment to examine them. Here is the list as given.
These may not apply to you, but I am sure that they apply to someone you know. I hope to give some arguments that will help persuade you to the truth that these are errors. In addition, I hope to help give you some tools to use with those you know who think along the manner of these statements. We are told in 1 Thessalonians 1:10 that Christ "delivers from the wrath to come." There is really nothing more significant in our lives than to know of our own eternal state. But also, when we have resolved our own eternal welfare, it is our duty to seek to be equipped and used in the process of snatching others from the wrath to come, Jude 23.
Soli Deo Gloria,
