    Billy talks to his pastor about God.

    Billy: “Pastor, does God love everybody?” Pastor: “Yes, Billy” (smiles, pats him on the head). Billy: “How come it says in Romans 9 that he hated Esau?”. Pastor: "Well Billy, (still smiling), the Bible does say God hates, but that is only talking about His secret decree, and as far as we are...

    You must be called by the King

    All the king's servants, and the people of the king's provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he...

    Why did Judas eat the bread?

    This narrative in in John 13 reminds me of Job. "And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord." Job 1:12 KJV "When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and...

    Unconditional election unto damnation.

    1 Samuel describes Eli and his two sons who were wicked men. The LORD says this is chapter 3 verse 14: And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever. 1 Samuel 3:14 KJV No matter what these men did God...

    What is faith?

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 KJV I believe the faith spoken of here is faith that accompanies salvation. Substance of things hoped for = This is our hope. Jesus Christ. The future. Resurrection from the dead. Eternal glory...

    Is faith a fruit of the Spirit?

    I believe it is a fruit of the Spirit: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith," Galatians 5:22 KJV Is belief a work of man or God? I believe it is a work of God: "Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of...

    Why did God hate Esau?

    Why did God hate Esau? In Romans 9:11-13 we find the following: "(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the...

    Genesis 6:14 - Pitch

    "Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch." Here is the first word (3722) in Strong's Lexicon. Here is the second word (3724) in Strong's Lexicon. It seems that the first word is a verb and the second is a noun. The...

    Different types of Calvinism

    I took these definitions from a post on the puritan board. I will link it at the bottom. Below are some distinctions in "Calvinism" and even Lutheran/Arminian. I consider myself high/ultra high Calvinist. Where does this chart place you? There seems to be much confusion and speaking past each...

    The Righteousness of Faith

    Many people profess that faith precedes regeneration, or, that justification is a result of one's faith. This makes faith a condition, or in other words, a meritorious work. I believe this is a false gospel, one that does not save. Scripture says this about the righteousness credited to...

    The demoniac

    We find this in Mark 5: 5 "They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. 2 And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. 3 He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with...

    Why was God pleased with the offering of Abel, but not Cain?

    Genesis 4 3 In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, 4 and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, 5 but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was...

    For whom did Christ die?

    The following two questions are a modern paraphrase of two questions from John Owens book "The Death of Death in the Death of Christ". A. For whom did Christ die? And B. What did His death accomplish? If Christ paid for all sins of all men without exception, yet all men are not saved, what...

    Deuteronomy 7:6-8 - A Chosen People

    1. The Lord chose(v 6) 2. This choice was unconditional(v 7) 3. This choice was out of love(v 7-8) Was this choice unfair to other nations? I say no. 6 “For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the...

    Could Adam(Eve too)have chosen not to sin?

    I don't think so. I believe God is the only one with free will. He exists outside of time! If man has "free will" he is equal to or greater than God. Adam's sin was determined by God. He is the 1st cause. Does this make you angry or upset? Why?

    Who hardens the minds of men?

    "But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed." 2...

    Well meant offer?

    I would like to hear responses from Calvinists on this. I recently read a blog from an Arminian that said Calvinism logically leads to hyper Calvinism. I do not believe in the well meant offer. If we, as Calvinists know that God has determined those who He will save and those who He will not...
