THis thread is not really for debate, at least not initially. I would like for each person to, in their first post to give a positive statement for their own belief. This is not for Calvinists ( for the most part we know what they believe) But this is for all of those in the "Non Cal" group. Please answer the folowing questions: 1 What is the nature of man's will at birth 2 Does man require the initiation from God in order to be saved or does man have the ability to have saving faith on his own. 3. What is the nature of the atonement? Did it pay for sin generally and then is applied to specific men when they believe? Did it pay for all sin universally but is only beneficial to those who believe? Some other belief? 4. Does God draw each man equally or does he draw some men more than others? 5. Is the drawing of God required for man to even be saved in the first place? The reason I bring this up is that you can answer these questions many ways and still keep your designation as a "non-cal"
