    Limited atonement means salvation by grace. Universal atonement means salvation by works.

    Limited atonement means salvation by grace. Universal atonement means salvation by works. Here’s why. Limited atonement justifies sinners who cannot save themselves leading to regeneration and holiness. Universal atonement does not save anyone. It only makes it possible for people to justify...

    The Father saved me, in Christ

    The Father’s word and grace saved me The basis of this discussion and Bible Study is John 6:36 – 6:58 There are other verses for this subject although I chose this portion of scripture because it captures more of the essence of how one is saved and what it means to be ‘in Christ,' which really...

    Is God Trying to Convert the World Now?

    Jesus promised, "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come." (Matthew 24:14) Does this promise mean that now is the only time of salvation for all people? The common words ALL and EVERY are two of the most important...

    Can We as Saved Christians Lose Our Salvation?

    A concept that is held by many Christian people is that eternal salvation IS ASSURED once we have accepted Christ as our personal Savior and have become a "new creature" in Christ. But if this were so, that once we have received God's grace, it is impossible to lose it . . . THEN . . . . . . WHY...

    Once Saved, Always Saved?

    "... the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life ..." "... by grace are ye saved ..."- - Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8 We get the point. Salvation from the death sentence is God’s gift, because God sent his own son to bear the death penalty for man. (John 3:16) But doesn’t...

    The Judgment Day

    The term “judgment” signifies more than simply rendering a verdict. It includes the idea of a trial and a decision based on that trial. This is true of the English word “judgment” and also the original Greek word translated as “judgment”. The term “day” signifies a definite period of time. For...

    The Ransom

    The RANSOM is a doctrine that is greatly misunderstood. Below are the strongest scriptural texts that bring out clearly the following three thoughts: 1. Man is ransomed from death 2. Man is ransomed by the blood of Christ 3. The ransom applies to ALL men The Scriptures say that false teachers...

    Limited Atonement, True or False? Part 5

    DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT SALVATIONS Here note the difference between the blessing God designed for the elect church He is selecting during this gospel age and the one he purposes for the world of mankind. The church’s blessing is not “restitution,” and in harmony with this we can see no evidence of...

    Limited Atonement, True or False? Part 4

    “TIMES OF RESTITUTION” In full accord with all that we discussed in our previous post is the apostle’s statement respecting the blessings that are to come to mankind during the millennial age, following our Lord’s second advent and the glorification of His church to joint heirship with Himself...

    Limited Atonement, True or False? Part 3

    FEW HAVE NECESSARY KNOWLEDGE The means for the blessing we see provided in Christ and His bride, the elect church of the Gospel age, but the guarantee of the whole is fixed beyond peradventure in the fact that “Jesus Christ by the grace of God tasted death for every man,” or, as our text...

    Limited Atonement, True or False? Part 2

    A COMMON ERROR CORRECTED At this point many good people laboring under a degree of blindness, the “smoke of the dark ages,” feel disposed to object and to insist that there can be no future probation. Ask them why, their reply is that the entire Scriptural teaching contradicts the thought of a...

    Limited Atonement, True or False? Part 1

    NOT A LIMITED ATONEMENT “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be...

    The Day of Salvation, Part 2

    “We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Cor 6:1, 2 Since we...

    The Day of Salvation, Part 1

    "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." 2 Cor 6:2; Isa 49:8 These words of the Apostle, quoted from the Prophet Isaiah, are generally understood to be a call to the world to improve the present opportunity of accepting Christ by faith in order to salvation, with...

    The Saving Faith

    “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8 The major essence of God’s gift of righteousness or justification is eternal salvation. From scriptures, we understand that the major salvation of God through the Lord Jesus Christ is...

    Rebirth - Salvation and Conversion

    Rebirth - Salvation and Conversion It seems that many folks do not see the rebirth (by God) experience and event in their lives as ONLY the FIRST spiritual life-changing experience. There is a SECOND experience; it is the necessary conversion process (by the saved one) as true believers in...

    Breaking of Bread: The gospel of peace.

    The Lord(Spirit) never looses control of steering those that are His. Acts 27:1-44 And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band. [2]And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we...
