    The Israel of God

    Just curious, do you believe that salvation of "National Jewish Israel" as a whole will not be for the purpose of restoring Israel to her Old Testament theocratic glory, but rather believing Jews will be saved into and as a vital part of the body of Christ, the Church, the true Israel of God...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Good question! You should explore the hidden sin of self idolatry. William

    Once again you lack the knowledge or understand the terms you use. Nobody claimed that you're Armenian. William

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    1) Yes you do. What is Pelagianism? Pelagianism is the belief that original sin did not taint human nature and that mortal will is still capable of choosing good or evil without special Divine aid. You said, " Fallen man was created in God's image and that image cannot be destroyed so, fallen...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Who said we receive sanctification in heaven?Seems to me that you reject regeneration precedes faith in your concluding statement. No doubt. Period, End. I hope everybody reads and understands fully what you just said! William

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    IRRESISTBLE GRACE Barnabas (A.D. 70): “God gives repentance to us, introducing us into the incorruptible temple.” Ignatius: “Pray for them, if so by they may repent, which is very difficult; but Jesus Christ, our true life, has the power of this.” Justin Martyr (A.D. 150): “Having sometime...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Again and again, you demonstrate no knowledge of the terms you are using. Here, lets start with the early church fathers and what is known as the five points of Calvinism. I'd be happy to address your quotes as long as you address these: TOTAL DEPRAVITY Barnabas (A.D. 70): “Learn: before we...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Where did you get that from? This is what is common amongst Arminians, they lack comprehension. If I knew who the Elect were, I wouldn't waste my time with the non Elect. Do you think there is some visible E written on everybody's T-shirt? But you may want to address: 1 John 2: 3: And by this...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Wrong, but I acknowledge that you refuse to burn up your own strawman. No doubt you'll build logic upon a false premise. I'd like to see your early church fathers that believed in Arminianism which no doubt will show your alignment to pre-schism theology which is more closely aligned to...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Waiting for you to actually do that, you cry out Scripture interprets Scripture but you ignore the surrounding Scripture of a verse (context). Here's a response to your Scriptural "interpretation": Answers to Arminian arguments God bless, William

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    To elaborate, Total depravity does not suggest that a man may not do any good in the sight of other men, but in the sight of a Holy God, all mans deeds are nothing but filthy rags Isaiah 64:6 and that the natural man is unrighteous and does not seek for God Romans 3:10-11. Fallen man is wholly...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    I'd like to see you provide a historical timeline of early church fathers until this day that supported the false doctrine of Arminianism. Not even Jacob Arminius published Arminianism during his lifetime, but in the Reformed church this distortion of salvation arose from later followers, which...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    To both FreeGrace and Smaller, I am convinced that either of you have no understanding about the doctrines of Grace found in the TULIP. Given the length of this post, I bow out as I do not believe any amount of Scripture or Creeds and Councils will change your minds. I refuse to get into a game...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    As a Calvinist I believe free will exists according to a biblical definition. However I reject an autonomous or libertarian (free) will. Amazing how many are synergistic here. God bless, William

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Strawman. It is evident that you're only distorting Calvinist doctrine. You have demonstrated no evidence of correctly understanding your opponents position, but you do bring into question your own soteriology. Biblical hope or faith is not wishful thinking. It is assurance, conviction, and...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Please provide proof of your claim, quote reference etc. You are viewing Perseverance of the Saints from a synergistic perspective rather than salvation as monergistic. John 6:44 No man can come to me (T) Unless the Father (U) Draws them to me (I) Then I will raise them up (L) On the last day...

    The Myth of God giving men freewill !

    Man's responsibility is not divorced from salvation (monergism). God obviously gave warning to the people that were following an uncircumcised heart. The decision is real and so are the consequences of the outcome. Perfect obedience is not possible because their hearts were not circumcised...

    Judas Iscariot: Saved for a while.

    Right from the get go Jesus said Judas was from the devil. We should know throughout the Scriptures that one is either for or against, and either a slave to sin or to God. Not to mention believing and actually seeing are two different things. People were actually at a disadvantage because Jesus...
