Here is a simplified understanding.
God does not pre-destine us to be SAVED, while others are pre-destined to be Damned.
Let me bring this "pre-destined elect" Theology home to you reader.......
Do you have a mother, do you have a child, children? What if God pre-determined that you get to go to Heaven, while He pre-destined your mother and your children to burn in the lake of fire, and there is nothing they can do about it. They CAN'T BE SAVED because GOD WON'T LET THEM.
So, do you see the "crazy" in this Hyper-Calvinism Theology?
Welcome to "pre-destined elect", "elect" "elect" "elect" "elect" "elect" heresy.
I think this one is the worst of them all, regarding totally rejecting the New Testament.
Imagine a "gospel"...
Why is the amount of skepticism rising in Christianity?
As Christians we are meant to be men and women of Faith in Jesus, we are meant to believe that Jesus can still work supernatural miracles through believers by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit lives in us Christians, as Christians we are temples of the Holy Spirit.
We are meant to be spreading a Gospel of all the powerful Jesus Christ who lives in every born again believer, the Jesus Christ who died for sins and rose again! We are meant to be spreading a Gospel of Jesus's resurrection power.
What happened to Matthew 17:20?
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you...
Is the Virgin Mary appearing? Yes.
She's the Woman in Gen 3:15 Douay Rheims "I will put enmities between thee and the woman".... thee=enemy
She's the Woman at the cross.
She's the Woman in Revelations 12:1
++The Protestants all reject Mary. Along with any unbelievers. God makes her enemies dislike her more. . . and him, too.
SHROUD OF TURIN & HOW TO TELL ITS THE CATHOLIC JESUS
The only real question there was is who do you say that I am Peter?
1. Jesus signed his shroud with his Sacred Heart.
2. Candle lamps on each arm saying he is the light of the world!
3. Mary seen in the other Candle lamp to Left.
4. Mary's Immaculate heart seen behind her image (2 hearts now: Immaculate Heart + Sacred Heart of Jesus)
5: The light has Jesus and Mary with 2 hearts in separate lamps.
another to see her heart is there.
The backside to miraculous medal (Bought mine at the Assoc of Miraculous Medal)...
A brother on this forum is now trying to spread the warning that I'm a "false teacher," a "wolf." And this appears to be because I believe Paul, in Romans 3, declares, hyperbolically, that we all have a sin nature, but that under the Law Israel could still do righteousness. It was not a righteousness that attains to eternal life, but it was a form of righteousness nonetheless.
Do you believe this belief qualifies as making me a "false teacher?" It doesn't matter to me if you believe one way or another. Does this kind of belief, having a more "positive" view of the Law, qualify as heresy to you? I need to have an answer for this guy! After all, he is spreading what I feel is disinformation about me.
It is, I feel, an interesting...
The most understandable and encouraging attribute concerning salvation is that of its permanency, after all, it is called “eternal salvation” (Heb 5:9). What part of salvation is temporary, seeing that one of the meanings of redemption is that of being saved from “eternal damnation” (Mar 3:29). Is it a sensible truism that one can be eternally saved and then not eternally saved? Thus being temporarily saved from “everlasting punishment” (Mat 25:46) is clearly a concept of an oxymoron?
'In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed,
ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Which is the earnest of our inheritance
until the redemption of the purchased possession,
unto the praise of His glory.'
It has been said in one of the threads that there are those who have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, but yet do not have the Holy Spirit. Yet, surely a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ not only requires the work of the Holy Spirit, but is also an indication of His presence?
In Christ Jesus
Please watch my latest video "Parable of the Sower."
The meaning of the Parable of the Sower is explained and a brief statement concerning the implications. The Parable of the sower employs a typical farming activity to illustrate why the human heart needs to be prepared in advance to receive, believe, and persevere in the truth.

There are believers who want to indoctrinate you into their harmful theology. This is their mission in life. They feel they are "led of the Spirit" to actually cause harm regarding the Faith of real born again believers.
So, how to recognize them?
How to know who is the liar, and who is the Truth.
Now i have a strong and unrelenting point of view about a certain heresy, because i have seen the damage it causes churches, Christians, and the heretics themselves. This theology is an extreme spiritual poison. Its an infection of the mind and spiritual condition. It literally can make you crazy. Especially if you are a sincere and true believer who above all things wants to please God.
The True Believers, if they are caught up in...
When we want to free ourselves from the bondage that is keeping us from being able to perform a continual lifestyle of holiness, vs, falling, repenting, falling, repenting....etc.
= When we want to not exist in THAT misery, but we want to live a solid and unfailing HOLY LIFESTYLE< vs a failed Faith, then you only get to this "fullness of the Stature of Christ" as you bring your mind in line with God's perspective of YOU.
Until you SEE yourself ONLY as God SEES you, then God's Grace is not able to underpin your walk of discipleship so that you are freed from bondage to your flesh.
See, the reason 99% of the born again can't live holy all the time is because they are not walking in the Light. They are believing WRONG.
They are walking...
