    John MacArthur: Distinguished Calvinist Preacher.

    You can believe in Jesus, and be completely ignorant of the debates regarding fallen man's hostile-to-God, light-hating condition, election, predestination, faith as a gift from God vs freewillism, etc.; however, once you find out about these things, from the Bible, as a born again Christian...

    John MacArthur: Distinguished Calvinist Preacher.

    The snide nature of your post reminds me of something else you posted recently (by their fruit you will know them). Remember that that applies to you, not only others.

    That works both ways...

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    I looked it up before. It says nothing about not having a human spirit.

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    What about the doctrine of single predestination (predestination is always positive, in the Bible)?

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    This is very similar to... Luke 19:12-14 (KJV) 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his citizens...

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    Please quote a reputable Greek lexicon that says that "psuchikos" means "having no human spirit" (this is certainly not what "soulish" means!). The link you gave says no such thing; and I have never seen a lexicon that does.

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    The other poster seems to think that faith proceeds from death (all that proceeds from death is dead, e.g. the dead religion of freewillism), rather than from new life.

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    They were all born again, as evidenced by their faith and acceptable worship of God. The unregenerate do not have faith, nor is any "worship" of theirs acceptable to God. Old Covenant saints were saved by grace, through faith, just as we are. They were not saved because of faith, but through...

    John MacArthur: Distinguished Calvinist Preacher.

    There are some modern Arminians (not all) who do not agree with some of what Arminius taught. Some of them have been on Old CARM. These ones are closer to semi-Pelagian than the original Arminians were. They teach that "prevenient grace" enables man to believe the gospel; but, they do not go...

    I wasn't implying that you don't think that Mac is a man of God. I was only stating my view about him, to avoid anyone thinking that I thought ill of him, because I disagree with his Eschatology.

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    We are all unregenerate, until God makes us born again. This has been the case ever since Adam fell. Before the foundation of the world, we did not exist (except in the mind of God).

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    The Bible tells us what unregenerate people are like, in many places; no suppositions are necessary

    Jan. 6. Ray Epps and death of Roseanne Boyland (Cremated after?) New Footage

    Did I mention anything about a "conspiracy"? No; I only quoted two mainstream newspaper articles (one from the U.S. and one from the U.K.). Snopes is well known to be completely unreliable.

    Snopes??? You're having a laugh! Do you know anything about Snopes? https://nypost.com/2021/08/13/banned-snopes-co-founder-plagiarized-dozens-of-stories/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4730092/Snopes-brink-founder-accused-fraud-lying.html

    Conversion, the result of regeneration.

    We're not told; in fact, we're not told when a great saved people were regenerated; nevertheless, they were.

    I disagree with Mac about his Eschatology, but I doubt if any of us have that correct. It's very difficult. I do believe that he is a conscientious man of God.

    A) Fallen man hates the Light and will not come to it. John 3:19,20 (Webster) 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to...

    I've also listened to Sproul, Boice and M. Lloyd-Jones - all excellent. I've haven't heard Kennedy.
