I haven't actually changed issues. You can , I'm sure make an argument on what you believe it means in Jn.3:16. When I say that the Bible teachesthat faith must first act before God blesses or accepts that faith, how much clearer can that be?? Will God bless my faith before my faith acts? Yes or no? I believe God WILL NOT. If you agree He does NOT then you and I both agree.
It seems we have a big difference of understanding the word "believe". If so please identify your position in the affirmative and if the scripture negates your understanding we will proceed. Your thoughts?
SINCE YOU ARE NOT A CALVINIST I'm not sure of your position. Is it when one is saved? If so I shall be glad to affirm. If some other let me know. I thought I understood your position. Maybe I'm to dense.
