From a Calvinist Perspective
« on: April 02, 2020, 06:36:26 pm »
As always I urge you not believe a word that is written in this thread but rather be a good Berean and find out for yourself in Acts 17:11......For GOD in Pro 25:2..(KJV).."It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."

**********

Hi,  I consider myself a leaky Calvinist. The reason I say leaky, is that I do not completely follow the namesake of the Calvinist theology (John Calvin).

Most people get Roman 8:29-30 all wrong but admit: "Obviously we cannot transform ourselves. Only the power of God can do that."

Are you like others before you, who say men were born of sin but have no Free-Will. I want to ask...Was Adam and EVE predestined? Were they saved by the Grace of GOD? Jesus had not died on the Cross YET! I expect, when we get to heaven we will see both of them there.

One thing I can tell you is that Adam had Free Will. So did Eve. She did not have to follow Satan's advise but by her own Free-Will she did. Adam did not have to partake of the fruit even though Eve gave it to him but by his own Free-Will he did.....

Thus, Free-Will was created in both Adam and Eve by GOD and the sin that we have, was brought on by mankind's downfall.

Don't blame God for something our forefathers did!.

For John 3:16 tell us.."For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Yes, for God in an eternity past already knew each of us and knew what we would do given the choice of being with Him for an Eternity or being without Him for an Eternity.

Those that would accept HIM, He predestined.

For all of the people, He loved them SO much that He gave a book (Holy Bible) that had John 3:16. He would tell the world and everyone in it that all they had to do is believe in His son who died on a Cross (for everyone's sin who would accept it).  Yes, I did say everyone, yet there are those that had rather be among others (sin and satan) than be with HIM.

Therefore, GOD loves you SO MUCH that he will not force you to live with HIM.

He loves you SO MUCH that He will abide by your choice made by you Free-Will.

He loves you SO MUCH that HE will carry the burden of not being with the Children of His creation who do not want to be with Him.

Yet, If He had forced us all to love HIM, we would have no FREE-WILL. We would be automatons. What kind of LOVE would that be????

Another choice He had at creation, would be to simply leave us to our own doings, remove the restrainer(the Holy Spirit) and let man's evil consume himself....Today, we could end it very quickly and most likely WILL.

Yes, we would still have Free-Will, but Free-Will to do what? DIE, a death where there would be NO life after this life (Both body and soul would die) confirming what Atheist have said throughout the centuries; there is no GOD as there is no life after this life.

Some will say that GOD's anger forces those who do not chose to believe in His son, to be tormented in the Lake of Fire. Yet, the words "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." is spoken of in the pages of the Holy Bible thirty-nine times.

Every Human being has ears and as such the Holy Bible, HIS WORD is spoken to each one of us and He tells us.

Rev 3:13..."He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

Rev 3:20..“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends."

For GOD loves you SO MUCH that He will not force you to Live with Him forever.[/u]

 I am sure that if by chance He is wrong and did not predestined the right number of people, from that eternity ago, who would believe in Him; He would GLADLY call, justifiy, sanctify and glorify you so that you can be with him forever and ever.


It is of course, your choice, a Free-Will Choice!

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
