The confusion is really not this OP's absurd doctrine.
What is it ????? is this...
Who decided for the Body of Christ that J. Calvin and J. Arminius, have decided for the "body of Christ", what we have to believe or not?
Who decided this for you???
All these churches and all these forum members who can rant endlessly about Mary, Calvin's teaching, Arminius's teaching, water baptism, commandments, and what the Pope said.......yet, if you asked them to explain the "blood atonement", they'd have to go to wikepedia to try to figure it out to then post and pretend they knew it all along.
And if you asked them.....>"What is the Preaching of the Cross"......that Paul said Christ sent him and me and you to DO.......they'd have no idea, and would have to go to wikipedia, once again.....to then cut and paste and PRETEND they knew all along.
And about that "pre-destined to be conformed, according to the Foreknowledge of God" ......that has been twisted by heretics to teach the LIE that God chooses some to be born so that they are burned in the lake of fire, having no option to be able to trust in Christ and go to Heaven.
These heretics teach that God only gives the Cross for SOME. These deceived teach that Jesus's Blood is not offered to ALL.
And what ive noticed, is that this "some" who are the ELECT who teach this theological vomit...... its always them and their family and church who are the Elect.........but probably not you or your family.
For you and your family and your church, its 50/50 if you are LUCKY.
Just remember that this predestined to burn in hell doctrine.... is anti-God, anti-Christ, and anti-Cross.
Dont let them get you caught up in it,.... as this heresy is one of the Devil's best he ever created and he will blind you with it as well...
