Jn. 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Here are some facts that cannot be denied if one is honest with this text: 1. There are only two types being compared - believers versus unbelievers - NOT ELECT VERSUS NON-ELECT 2. Jesus is speaking of the PRESENT TENSE condition of both types as the verbs "believeth" and "is" are present tense verbs. 3. One is either PRESENTLY believing or is PRESENTLY not believing 4. Those PRESENTLY believing are not PRESENTLY condemned - "IS not condemned" 5. Those PRESENTLY not believing are PRESENTLY condemned - "IS condemned" Even the elect are born into this world in a state of UNBELIEF and thus are "children of disobedience" and while they are in that state of "unbelief" they are "children of wrath even as others" under condemnation as Jesus plainly says that all who are not believing in Christ "IS condemned already" BECAUSE THEY ARE PRESENTLY NOT BELIEVING IN CHRIST. This stated cause describes all who enter this world and continue in unbelief UNTIL belief replaces unbelief. Now SBM will attempt to PIT scripture against this scripture but cannot HARMONIZE this text with the scriptures he pits against it. However, my position can HARMONIZE his scriptures with this scripture and the truth always HARMONZES all scriptures. The truth is that Christ justified the elect by his blood in that it provided the basis for legal application by the Holy Spirit to the elect "through faith" - Eph. 2:8; Rom. 3:24-26; Romans 5:10 with Romans 5:8-11.
