    These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed them that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

    Why didn't the Holy Spirit not say they embraced them and were persuaded could it be this is because the order is first the persuasion of sinful man by the Holy Spirit and then the man is enabled to embrace and confess?

    Again, hillbilly hermeneutics.

    As the free-willers in my area are wont to do, I guess I must say...Amen.

    Or ask the congregation for somebody to Amen me. :D

    Does this scripture scare the free-willer? Or are they regrouping and searching for a way to twist the plain word of God; Even a child can understand the order given here.

    I don't disagree, and never have disagreed that the Holy Spirit reveals things to man. I have stated that Holy Spirit conviction is part of man coming to belief in Jesus. Holy Spirit conviction of man of his sinful and lost state is the "influence" that I have oft spoken of. The Holy Spirit does not however cause one to believe. That is the Job of the knowledge that comes from the Word. It is the knowledge from the word, and the influence of the Holy Spirit by which man makes his choice to believe or not believe.

    Good, we agree. :D

    Just had to say that. The Word is Christ, The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, such then, this knowledge is revealed from the Word, I do agree, yet to leave the choice to a man dead in sin is dangerous; what desire does such man have??

    Typical Arminianism. :rolleyes: If Arminianism doesn't make the gospel presentation into something like selling soap, then it makes the gospel presentation into trying to trick man(luring? enticing? :rolleyes: ) into making a decision that man is unable to make unless he has been regenerated.

    Spiritual truth is "typical" of all believers in Jesus.

    Yes, it does. False methods lead to false confessions which lead to false security which leads to hell.

    SO, we have thousands of people professing to be Christians, not because they realize they are wicked sinners before a holy God, but because they some arminist sold them a Jesus who just wants to be their friend or a Jesus who will make their life better.

    SO, we now have thousands of professed Christians who are really not. They act shamefully in the name of Christ and have been lead down the path to hell.

    I am sorry, but the ends DO NOT justify the means.

    I think that is what I referred to as a false confession.

    Bro. Dallas [​IMG]
    </font>[/QUOTE]In addition, I think it was ScottE who said that intellectual knowledge (belief in the facts) and trust (belief on Jesus) are inseparable. I'm not sure that means anything, though, since there seem to be as many differences of opinions on how this works as there are arminians. That's why I couldn'g get anywhere with the threads I started on the topic. Nobody seemed to agree on these things.

    But what you are missing is belief in the facts of what? The answer that you leave out is "belief in the facts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." If one believes those facts, then he will believe on Christ.

    </font>[/QUOTE]YES, because knowledge is an element of Faith. The Word of God does not deliver to us a faith, the word deliveres to us a knowledge that leads us to faith!

    This taken directly from the Word of God, pertaining to order nothing has been altered. This proves to me the order is first the persuasion of the promises viewed 'afar off' and then comes the embracing of these, then the confession, based upon the persuasion worked in the heart; and the embrace.

    This order holds true to vs. 6 found above vs. 13 in Heb. 11 as well, as also in other places in scripture which show those coming to Christ, (specifically Luke 8 and the woman with an issue of blood) did she believe only after touching the hem of his garment? Or was it her belief that brought her to Christ?

    I think the order is self-evident in the Word of God, except that men want to deny this plain and simple order.
