Greetings again Theo1689,
You are correct here, as I am very much in my environment as far as reading and listening. The article by HA Twelves and your quick and thorough response is beyond my depth of reasoning and understanding at this present stage of my development, but I will keep a copy of your response together with my article for reference, for my contemplation and possibly for anyone else in our meeting who is interested in this subject.
Well, let me suggest something to you... You grow more when you're exposed to differing viewpoints, than when you live your life in an echo chamber.
And if you are in any way serious, I would recommend James White's book, "The Potter's Freedom", as he goes into greater detail, and can make a far more compelling argument than is possible in a 10,000 character forum post. And for fairness, his book was a response to Norm Geisler's "Chosen But Free", which has a viewpoint similar to yours, so you are welcome to read both sides.
