The Doctrines of Grace Taught by the Early Church Fathers

Great article and quotes.

I may have to get the ebook

Grace and peace to you.
There's nothing here of what Augustine taught.
Perhaps you should read each quote.

The Early Church Fathers DID NOT believe in predestination. Some early Christians might have, but they were not CHURCH FATHERS.

I read through about 20 quotes and there is nothing there.

The Early CHURCH did not teach predestination.

Here's the unbiased expert, David Bercot:

 
Did you read the whole article or just the quotes.

Apuritansmind is very trusted and respected website.

Who Is David Bercot?
David Bercot is a retired attorney, author, and church historian. Outside of law, his special field of interest and study has been the early church (particularly the church prior to the Council of Nicaea, A. D. 325).

Yes, lets trust a retired attorney. That's some good stuff.

See.
You only read what you want to see.
He was a contract atty. That means he knows about detailed and critical reading. And how to read Only what is printed and nothing else.

You know what's funny?
Augustine was Catholic.
The reformation was anti catholic.
Except for Augustine,,,,they loved him.
If you want to accept Augustine, accept all of the early church fathers.

Some were taught by the Apostles.
Your list of quotes doesn't state who wrote it, or I can't remember.

Listen to what I linked. It's really authoritative.
Good night.

That is directly from his website about him..

The names of the ECF are right next to the quotes from their writings.

Grace and peace to you.
