    this is all gone over in detail on the recording...did you listen to it at all?



    I love how I will say something like, "God predetermined my salvation"...and the anti-Calvinist will react and try to show me a ton over verses that "prove" that God only reacts to what he sees us choose...


    on the other hand, if I tell a Calvinist that "I have free will and i also decided if I wanted to believe or not" then they will have a whole list of bible verses that "prove" God is alone sovereign....



    Both sides are right up to a point..
    and dead wrong too

    So your life is a programmed happening and you spend your life mindlessly executing code and following instructions that God has programmed you with.

    I have been listening to Walter Martin since the early 70's and I can say that I did listen to him before you posted it and I did listen to the pot you made.

    LOL......

    its like ...."cl***ic"

    Tell a Calvinist that I have free Will and they have a cow, and accuse me of wanting to be God.
    Tell an Anti-Calvinist that God is Sovereign and they call me a robot.

    The answer I teach is found in my story of the p***enger on a great ship.

    We always have freedom, yet our freedom never for a moment actually trumps the authority of the Skipper of the ship to direct our lives where he and he alone wants it to go.

    So when the Skipper gives a command for the ship to go when He wants it to go, he is not worried about what direction we walk on the ship at the time...
    Its all already taken into account.

    Then explain yourself so one doesn't reach the robot conclusion. You have a short memory, I also believe that God is Sovereign. Try to remember what you read and try to comprehend it.

    So you do believe that God has predestined those that believe to be believers.

    Why are you so reluctant to state your own belief? Yes or no will clearly answer the question.

    what is so hard about the fact that I have answered that question enough times to now tell you that 'we have covered that"....and "move on"?

    We have already covered that.

    Move on...

    For as Walter martin points out, there is no way to reconcile the free will of man to God's sovereignty...and yet that is what we see in the bible...

    Man does have free will.
    God is alone sovereign....


    see the answer is found at 3:40 to 4:44 of the recording

    You have not given me a simple answer that I can clearly understand. You tell me stories, refer me to Walter Martin, but never directly answer the question. A simple yes or no will clear it up for me as far as understanding your position. How about it, I am an old man.

    Yes or no will make it clear. Are you afraid to be clear about what you believe?

    you can go ahead and copy/paste the same question over and over a few dozen more times if you like....

    I will just hang back and allow you to get that out of your system.


    When you have had enough, just let me know and I can wrap it all up with a link to the Martin recording as well as tell you go check my post number #78 for my own take on the topic.







    have fun....
