Did Jesus endorse a “blind faith”—one based on feelings rather than facts? If so, then why did He rebuke His apostles for not believing in His resurrection before they had actually seen Him resurrected? And why did Jesus tell Thomas, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed”? What kind of “faith” was Jesus advocating?
The folks at World Video Bible School have enlisted Denny Petrillo to present a study of THE BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. He has done a masterful job in answering this often studied question. Here is their description of the video…
Have you heard of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit? Have you wondered if you have committed this sin? The study of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is a fascinating one, but also a frightening one. The thought of doing something that would provoke eternal damnation is frightening indeed. Join Denny Petrillo (Ph.D.) as he focuses on three areas: (1) What does the word ‘blasphemy’ mean? (2) What is the context in which the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit occurred? (3) Is it possible to commit this sin today?
I enjoy watching videos on YouTube, especially at home on a large screen. Lots of different kinds (some even about lawnmowing). I love to watch videos in Bible-related fields. I watched a beautiful one today from WVBS. I think I will try to be placing some of these videos I view on our site on Mondays. If it is on here it is something I have already viewed and thought worth others taking a look at. Today let me recommend Don Blackwell’s presentation of: THE APOCRYPHA AND THE LOST BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.
Have you ever wondered why we have the books we do in our Bibles? Are there “lost books” that should be in the Bible? What about the Apocrypha found in Catholic Bibles? Join Don Blackwell as he looks at the background and context for recognizing the canon of inspired books in the Bible. Understanding these questions can provide confidence for your faith.
