    "Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you--unless indeed you fail the test?" (2 Corinthians 13:5).

    Calvinists, please refer to your own interpretation of 1 Corinthians 2:11-16 and then explain the following:

    1. How will the "unspiritual man" reprobate who cannot discern spirtual things be able to examine themselves in this manner?

    2. Why would a reprobate need to do such a thing?

    3. Why would a born again believer need to test himself to see if he was in the faith when you claim it is impossible for him not to be in the faith and that Jesus Christ is in you and it would be impossible to fail this test?


    Perhaps, if you think about these questions you will see some of the many errors of your ways.

    Answer the question rc.

    Read 1 Cor 2:11-6 according to Calvinism.

    Now tell me how an "unspiritual man" is going to rightly discern this spiritual examination of himself.
