    "They Are Spiritually Discerned"

    It's actually quite simple. 1 Corinthians 2:14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Yes, the devil can appear as an angel of light, so can his ministers. That's...

    Many are called but few are chosen

    Strawman? I wasn't even talking about the LAMBS book of Life: I was talking about the "book of life". I've been told they are two separate books. Whether that is so, or is not; the Bible says that names can be "blotted out" of a "book of life". Read it for yourself.

    Many are called but few are chosen

    The KJV reads like this" 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up...

    Many are called but few are chosen

    Psalm 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous. Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before...

    "They Are Spiritually Discerned"

    Yes, God's word is Spiritually discerned. Galatians 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,” Maybe when we can read it while in this mindset, interpretation becomes much easier. Of course the "natural man" cannot do this because the...

    I have to admit the same.

    Many are called but few are chosen

    The verse "many are called but few are chosen" has clarity within itself and that it uses the word "called" . But the parable above it and of which it is the conclusion explains it clearly: and invited guests to the wedding and they chose not to come. They were being invited and they refused of...

    Absolutely. His plan for salvation is Grace through faith throughout the ages and throughout his word. Here's one example. Deuteronomy 30: 19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing...

    Free Will - A More Exhaustive Look

    Okay the time had expired so I couldn't edit it but it was Noah who prepared the art to the saving of his household but the principal is the same rahab did essentially the same thing by hiding the spies she saved her household when Jericho was destroyed. She did that by faith.

    Free Will - A More Exhaustive Look

    I recall reading a story about a lady named rahab the harlot remember that one? I'm going to paraphrase here but I think the Bible speaks about moved with fear she acted to save her household? So all the people of Jericho had heard about the Jews but rahab chose to believe and acted accordingly...

    Many are called but few are chosen

    Exactly Here's another who was faced with the choice Acts 24 24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. 25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix...

    Many are called but few are chosen

    No sir, the glory of God is in the act of the all-mighty Creator of the Universe humbling Himself as a lowly man, and loving the entire World so much that he went to the cross, in shame, died, and rose again, so that we might have abundant life and fellowship with Him for ever. Love...God is...
