    Is irresistible grace (effectual calling) a biblical doctrine?

    You're free to believe what you want, by the way. I would ask you to exegete the passage you are referring to, regarding all men coming to salvation. I don't believe in an old man in heaven who is powerless to accomplish his decrees, and that is the essence of free-willer theology. I also...

    Is total depravity (radical corruption) a biblical teaching?

    I don't think so. The real issue is, where does faith and repentance come from? In the free-willer worldview, it is a decision made from a heart of stone. The result is the receipt of a heart of flesh. In the Reformed worldview, God gives the person a heart of flesh, which bears the fruit of...

    Is irresistible grace (effectual calling) a biblical doctrine?

    Do you believe that all Christians are being transformed into the image of Christ, and are to be holy, or do you believe that it is acceptable for them to continue on in sin? How do you define holiness? How do you define sinfulness? By the way, that's only one use of the law..to act as a...

    Should Christians entertain non-binary persons in their sexual delusions?

    I've never met one either..I've met bisexuals and gay people but not non-binaries. However apparently it's getting to be more popular.

    Should Christians entertain non-binary persons in their sexual delusions?

    This is a good point. Their real issue is the need for a heart of flesh, and their sexuality will fall in line after that.

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    One of the reasons why the Reformers rejected the feast days of saints was due to the undependable nature of these sorts of legends. I recently read a story about a Russian Christian called Vanya, who was persecuted in the Russian Army for his faith. The book was written by charismatics. I...

    Is irresistible grace (effectual calling) a biblical doctrine?

    Correct. I already gave an irrefutable example. His prescriptive will is demonstrated by the Ten Commandments. He gives the Law to be obeyed perfectly, but he knows no one will obey it perfectly, at least not in spirit. His decretive will is demonstrated by any number of prophecies which...

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    Antinomianism: We are Not Set Free to Sin BY J. I. PACKER Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he [Christ] is righteous. - 1 JOHN 3:7 Antinomianism, which means being “anti-law,” is a name for several views that have denied that...

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    Do you think that Foxe's Book of Martyrs was invulnerable from inaccuracies? I've read some accounts of martyrs in the past. While I think the stories were largely based on truth, I believe they were sort of like "fan fiction". I'm pretty sure they were embellished, as I doubt the martyrs had...

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    Correct, in some sense everyone believes in dispensations, but not premillennial dispensationalism. And I agree that it isn't used for justification. However, I would maintain that the law does give us some idea of God's nature, and the believer is supposed to be conformed to the image of...

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    Specifically the issue I'm concerned with is this view that there are two different tiers of Christians; the carnal ones and the spiritual ones, and that it is acceptable for a believer to remain in carnality. I don't deny that newer believers or even older believers have periods of...

    Is total depravity (radical corruption) a biblical teaching?

    I think so, but there's no clear evidence in Scripture regarding the death of children. I don't think anyone fails to come under the condemnation of Adam, though, so these deceased infants would still be under grace and the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, and not sinless. They can still sing...

    Is total depravity (radical corruption) a biblical teaching?

    Compared to Ginger..I think so, too. You do realize she is about 81 years old now? The actresses who played Mary Ann and Ginger are the only two living ones from the original cast. Sad.

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    I clarified a few remarks but was too late to change the original post: Dispensationalists often focus on mere intellectual assent, with no fruit of salvation being necessary. Additionally, they often create a two-tier system of Christians. Some Christians are carnal, and never become...

    Does dispensationalism lead to antinomianism?

    Most Christians probably don't realize the differences between covenant theology and dispensationalism. Additionally, they probably don't realize that if they are a non-Reformed evangelical, their pastors are educated in dispensationalism, and his teachings are based upon it...
