Dear Brothers and Sisters...
1John 3:9
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
It's understandable how some can misunderstand John's statement, as it would seem that John was declaring that sinning becomes impossible for those born of "God." But, this is a misunderstanding.
Good Morning Bro... Good explanation! Smile.

<quoted text>Dear John, I see that you avoided my questions also... smile.
<quoted text>Your questions were designed , IMHO, with malicious intent... My questions were designed to help you think it through but obviously you didn't want to think it through because that wasn't your initial intention...
<quoted text> Again, I believe your motive to be malice in this instance, IMHO.
<quoted text>I'll do better, I will use myself as an example. This is an example now, Say that I'm a Christian who confesses to be saved and washed in the blood and all the cliche's that go along with that.... but YET, I don't love my brother. Instead of loving my brother, I truly despise him. Well, obviously that would be sinful because one who doesn't love his brother cannot know God.
So I continue my rant against him via t-mail, e-mail, facebook... yadda yadda. Now, The Holy Spirit will convict me in my spirit that what I'm doing isn't right... my sinful actions feels good to my fleshly nature (that is, the old man), and I could rationalize it away my saying that my brother is of the devil... but it isn't what God wants me to do. So I could either humble myself and repent of my unrighteous ways or I will be chastened by the Lord. But if I refuse that chastening, refuse to repent and still go on to sin unrepentedly then I will die spiritually. Because if I live after the sin nature then I will die but I listen to the Spirit, I will live. Dying there is not talking about physical death because everyone dies a physical death... Paul is referring to a spiritual death. If one repents and starts to walk after the spirit then they will be restored back unto right relationship with God.
Now, if I confess my "sins", then He is faithful and just to forgive me my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Now if I say that I am righteous because He is righteous and yet live unrighteously then how can I say that I am righteous? If I don't repent of my sins and spurn the chastening of the Lord and continue to live after the flesh... then I'm not enduring with the Lord to the end. I know that confessing my sins isn't a one-time act and I would need to ask for forgiveness for my current sinful actions. If I were once saved always saved then confessing my sins would only need to be a one time act.
We need to remember that part of our walking humbly before God is confessing of our sins... not just one time... but continually. If we continue stubbornly in unchecked sin, then we will die spiritually. Confess your sins, continue to wash them robes in the Blood of the Lamb and you shall be made whiter than snow.
Hopefully that would answer those questions. A couple at least.
No that didn't answer those questions, that dodged them. But I'm not surprised, I figured that's what you would do.

Brother RA, do you love me?
Why do you ask?

Wow, now I'm trying to answer a question with a question. Hmm, imagine that.
_______

But unlike you I'll answer your question with a straight forward answer.

Yes of course I do. God asks us to love everyone. And that's what I do.
_______

See if I didn't love you I'd do things like run to other threads and mock your beliefs, telling the people there just how crazy your beliefs are. And make claims about what I think your beliefs teach people even if what I say isn't the truth.

You know what I'm saying now don't you Q? Because you're doing exactly what I just said I'd do if I didn't love you.

Very telling indeed.

"By predestination we mean the eternal decree of God, by which He determined with Himself whatever He wished to happen with regard to every man. All are not created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of those ends, we say that he has been predestined to life or death." - John Calvin

A link to the written debate referenced by Hank in above post. Now, I personally like both the writings and debates George Bryson and James R. White have on various doctrinal subjects with others, but in this one I lean to Bryson.

A good ,informative read, enjoy:

<quoted text>You don't know what you're talking about. No one was 'predestined' to go to heaven or to be lost on Judgement Day. All the Holy Bible says about this matter is simply that God.......FOREKNEW....who would go to heaven and who wouldn't. God is totally Holy and fair. And He would NEVER create a living soul soley for the purpose of eventually sending them to hell. God does not desire that ANYONE should perish. I mean,get REAL.
You my not realise it Doc, but you've synergized eternal security and "whosoever will"- good job.

That's a quote from John Calvin you're responding to, read post again. He's the fellow who put 'eternal security' in doctrinal form.

So, as of right now, you're only a 1 point Calvinist:)
