sorry sir<quoted text>
The term once saved always saved is a man made term that is very simplistic. Yet the design of the atonement is also a man made term and is very much a topic of discussion. It relates very well with this thread that goes off topic most of the time. Yes it is true that the Bible teaches this topic and in its pages are all we need to understand it but most of us don't have time to go into it at the level of a scholar and Dr. Johnson was very qualified as a biblical scholar. He was a Greek New Testament scholar as well as one of the best theology teachers that Dallas Seminary ever produces when it comes to the question of the Perseverance of the Saints. He was very much a Calvinist. It is always good to consider the teachings of ones that are much smarter then you or I on a particular subject. I would be glad to listen to whoever you can link me to to compare notes.:^)
I never count on explanation educative by this world teachers,theologians,or priests after seminars
Bible clearly tell to those who are saved
is sent by God Holy Spirit and directly teach them sound doctrines of Bible
John 14;6..is answer who is the truth and the way.JESUS CHRIST,
not earthly churches,credited theologians by deceived spiritual knowledge of this world
one time saved is biblical doctrine directed only to those who ARE TRULY SAVED BY DIRECTION OF HOLY SPIRIT,not man made teachings,or any earthly church.
calvin was very close in spiritual understanding, but he was human like all of us,
and not calvinism is true worship,
ONLY TRUE BELIEVERS WHO WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT AND THE TRUTH?
look at moder example of camping teachings leaded nowhere,horible dissapointment, and toaday vegetable low profile sermons so called on familyradio"special message" what camping calvinistic follower have special in those sermons on radio,

"cursed is a man who trust in man"
IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCES IN PRINCES(MEN)
May God bless you TIM
