    On their xmas cards to everyone will be this verse...

    MAT 1:21

    She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will MAKE SALVATION POSSIBLE to

    ALL people from their sins...

    The Calvinist xmas... we just use the verse as it is in the Bible...

    Matthew 1:21 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save

    his people from their sins."

    You should have posted this over in the Humor forum because your reasoning is quite humorous.

    I do not celebrate xmas, nor do I send xmas Cards.

    I celebrate Christmas, and send Christmas Cards.


    Xmas must be the way Calvinists see the season.

    Could you calvinist be anymore prideful or arrogant? I wonder? Is there an once of passion for people or just for the teachings of John Calvin?

    Hi Tim,

    Of course we could be. There are haughty Calvinists and haughty Arminians. There are humble Calvinists and humble Arminians. There are Calvinists with passion for the lost, as well as Arminians. There are Calvinists who won't witness, as well as Arminians. There are also judgmental people on both sides, and in the middle.

    So, what's your take on the verse "rc" quoted, Matthew 1:21?

    Prophesy concerning ATONEMENT for sin, AND WHO WILL DO IT!
    There is No other name under heaven where by we must be saved!

    I don't like the wording of this...it wasn't a plea or an argument. It was simply a flame, so I'm closing the topic.
