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:

Give him a break, apparently god made him that way. So the real 'a' whole would be god. Correct?

<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:)

Thank you for taking the time to post this.
It's my pleasure, Le_le. I try, to the best of my ability, to be an example of love in all I do, including my posts (Rom 13:8). I can only hope that this is evident.

If this "us" means "believers that have remained faithful and obedient unto the end (Heb 3:14)," then I agree.

Maybe this seems unrealistic to you and your heart, to me

Let's hope your ministers are honorable, trustworthy, and informed (2Cor 11:14-15).

Is that what Moses did? The prophets? The apostles? Our anointed Savior?

With all due respect, but it's that type of attitude that conceived division in the first place.

As for Lawlest- I am just not comfortable identifying myself w his kind of
"Christianity".
I felt similarly about Christendom at 14 years of age. Some 11 years later, I began calling my religion "Mashiyachiym," which is the Hebrew equivalent of our English transliterated "Christian." I say "some 11 years later," because it took 11 years of study and comparison before I decided to separate myself, by name, from Christendom's many denominations.
