It gets a bit tiring to see Calvinists constantly deny or try to misquote Romansos. So a little bit of a study here.
He helps us, guides us, teaches us and gives us what we need.
He does not preprogrammed us to think in a certain way on any topic.
He does it all for our benefit according to the will and plan...
God chose some of us to be saved while the rest of us are up the creek without a paddle, right? Of course, the sound of that is about as foreign a concept to the character of Jesus - and the Father, as told to Philip - as is foreign the concept of a Federal budget without deficit spending.
So, to what Scriptures are appeals made to prove this? Those verses which speak about fashioned vessels of "dishonor", "brute beasts" and a seething, intense hatred for "hated" Esau, all of which are said to prove God is the arbitrary operator of some twisted celestial lottery, right? I think not.
1) VESSELS OF DISHONOR: How does the Potter accomplish the fashioning of dishonorable vessels? By our own refusal to be conforming clay in His...
Yes, I know. You don't have to tell me. I am being provocative but I have to have fun now and then.
Just to put you in the picture I have made a very extensive study of this topic and have read many, many books and articles dealing with it. Soooooo, I am not just shooting from the mouth just to annoy you.
Now, to the Last Supper or the Lord's Supper or communion or mass or whatever you want to call it.
Talking from an evangelical perspective, the communion as we usually know it or perform it is NOT in scripture.
The last supper of Jesus has no bearing on what we claim it does.
Frank Viola in one of his books "Pagan Christianity" gives a potted history of communion which I agree he got right.
Prior to the Reformation, the...
SDA gone evolutionists!
Q~The particular focus of the chapter, of course, is the transformation of the earth from a state of being “without form, and void” (Gen. 1:2) to the world that God Himself, on the sixth day, declared “very good” (Gen. 1:31).~Q

No longer the CREATION OUT OF NOTHING (ex nihilo).
Someone asked a question as to what is the difference between a Gentile saved by Peter's gospel and Paul's. I could not find this question again when I attempted to respond. If you read this please let me know.
The answer is:
They are both saved by responding to either gospel. God requires faith for salvation. God deals with mankind differently in each dispensation. Peter's gospel was to be believed during that dispensation. There was overlap, but Paul's gospel is to be believed today. Peter's gospel is not, nor should be preached today.
The only difference between the two Gentiles is their inheritance. A Gentile who believed Peter's gospel would inherit eternal life and from my understanding would have entered the Davidic kingdom on...
Two Meanings, from Wiktionary:
metacommunication (plural metacommunications)
- Communication or discussion, especially involving academic analysis, about communication itself.
- Communication which is implicit and not expressed in words.
Since we don't have much of the second meaning we can do with an internet forum, where communication is the sterile written word, I'm happy to discuss the first, how we write, and what we actually convey by the things we've...
Who understands this passage?....
Gal. 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
Through what law?
(Paul is quite confusing with all his references to law without being specific about what he's talking about)
And what does this have to do with....the soul that sins...it shall die. ???
@Preacher4Truth, @Anthony D'Arienzo, @SovereignGrace, @Mjh29,
I am deeply sorry for the way that I have treated you guys. I have been going through some things in my personal life and at church and it has carried over into my treatment of you. I hope that you can forgive me for the condemning attitude that I have had towards you; for I misinterpreted Isaiah 54:17 to mean something that it doesn't say. I don't know what it does mean; but I know that it doesn't mean what I thought it means. The Lord is making this clear to me. I thought that I was creating a deterrent so that people in the body of Christ wouldn't judge each other any more; but instead I have...
Next Events Bible Prophecy says We will See very Soon!!
Last days prophecy= Psalm 83 War=Israel against Iran, Syria, backed by Turkey,Russia just before OR after the rapture. Psalm 83:1:5
O God, do not remain quiet;
Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
2 For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
3 They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
5 For they have conspired...
