    Limited Atonement, God's Longsuffering and the Meaning of the Word "All"

    Calvinists, in trying to prove John Calvin's idea of a limited atonement, will sometimes avoid the primary meaning of the word 'all' (pas). The primary meaning of the word all means each and everyone universally but Calvinists try and use a secondary meaning as in 'all of a certain group'...

    The Prize

    Phil 3:13-14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." 1 Cor 9:24-25 "Know...

    The False Security of Eternal Security

    On the way to work this morning I was scanning through the radio dial and came across a program where someone (Adrian Rogers I think) was teaching on eternal security. His "proof text" was Jn 10:28 "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck...

    Can Obedience To God Earn Salvation?

    This thread came about as a result of a post I made in another thread: "The only way one can make his salvation something earned/something of debt and not of grace is by keeping God's law sinlessly perfect. But Abraham and David both sinned so they could not earn salvation by works they needed...

    God's Conditional Grace

    Some are under the wrong impression that God's grace must be unconditional else man would be trying to earn grace by "working" a condition. Is that the case? Namaan was told to dip in the Jordan river 7 times and he would be cleansed of his disease. 1) it's undeniable that his cleansing...

    Rom 4:4 "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt." Rom 4:5 "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." The workers reward is of debt and not grace. This means the worker is one...

    Ephesians 2:10

    "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Can one be a Christian yet not walk in those good works which God before ordained Christians to walk in? Can one go through their whole life with faith only...

    The Work of Repentance Versus Faith Only

    On another forum, I made the argument that the very idea of repentance requires restitution/reparation. So if you steal your neighbors horse and repent, then true repentance requires you to return the stolen horse else you have not truly repented/changed. If you do not have to return the horse...
