LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

A Comparative Study

Between Arminian theology and biblical theology.

If I wasn't already convinced that there's no concept of man's free will in salvation, this would have done it.

Commenting on my own post...

Even a cursory reading of Scripture reveals the plain and inescapable language of God's electing, choosing, picking, calling, etc of individuals for His good pleasure and divine purposes.

It is He who does ALL of the initiating.

Now fellas, I want you to talk a listen to the Theology Talk, when you get a chance.

I'd like to know what you think of Jim. :)

Gayla,

I haven't listened to it yet, but I hope to this week later on.

Interestingly, as I commenced rereading a chronological Bible this new year and find myself in Genesis, I was impressed upon by God's election of Abram, since Scripture doesn't say he was chosen for any reason other than God chose him, and then of course, Abram responded in faith. But Scripture is plainly shows God moving of His OWN FREE WILL and good pleasure. He is the true free agent. We are but clay in the Potter's hand.

Yea, Mark! I'm so glad you listened. They're very spot on.

I'm really liking this pastor, Jim McClarty.

Susan, take your time...it ain't going anywhere. :)
