This is the guy who latches on to the verse dealing with free will offeringWhat I call an inconsistent argument because I can state the same "truth" about your position.
To wit: @fltom and @Chalcedon and @Johnnybgood latch on to certain verses and read the entire bible in the light of how they read that verse and everything contrary goes to the waste side.
The Pelagian defends Pelagius.
apologia: a speech in defenseOriginal Word: ἀπολογία, ας, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Phonetic Spelling: (ap-ol-og-ee'-ah)
Definition: a speech in defense
Usage: a verbal defense (particularly in a law court).
627 apología (from 575 /apó, "from" and 3056 /lógos, "intelligent reasoning") – properly, a well-reasoned reply; a thought-out response to adequately address the issue(s) that is raised.
627 /apología ("reasoned defense") is the term for making a legal defense in an ancient court. Today 627 /apología("biblical apologetics") is used for supplying evidences for the Christian faith.
[An "apology" in classical times had nothing to do with saying, "I'm sorry," but rather was a reasoned argument(defense) that presented evidence(supplied compelling proof).]
Ephesians 2:8,9 by grace through faith. No faith no grace.Where does the Bible say faith is required for grace?
LOL, that does not say no faith no grace
The term Proto-evangelium, meaning "the first gospel or good news," is traditionally applied to Gn 3.15 where God curses the serpent who had just enticed the first woman to break His commandment. It reads: I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed; He shall crush your head, and you shall lie in wait for his heel.Says the one who makes up the word gospel in Gen 3:15 🥱
nowhere in the Bible does any verse say Gen 3:15 is the gospel .
That is exactly what it says. It says without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God. You believe anyone who displeases God and does not believe in Him will receive grace ? Heb 11:6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.LOL, that does not say no faith no grace
