    Yes....just when you thought their were enough labels to describe what and how people have believed we now find that in a few easy steps you can now be a Vanwinmanian!
    How you ask? Is it hard to do?
    No ....anyone can do it !!! ...lets see how-

    First take clear passages of scripture, then explain them away:thumbsup:
    Like this:
    Well, I am sure I will gets lots of disagreement
    but I understand John 10:26-27 like this. {this is how to misunderstand it}
    God in his foreknowledge knew who would believe in time{wrong use of foreknowledge}
    and chose or elected these persons. {nothing in man commends itself to God}
    These are his sheep.
    Those that God knew would not believe in time are not his sheep. :laugh:
    No matter how many people try and offer correction and a proper understanding of the verses........just keep repeating the errors over and over and over.....until people get put into a trance.
    No need to concern yourself with what the words actually mean ...or those pesky greek and hebrew words......Just tell everyone how YOU feel about the verses:wavey:

    In fact when someone offers the correct understanding....claim they are following a man made system and ignore the good verses they offered:thumbs: Here are more examples of how to never understand most any verse:

    Did you get that...lol...see anyone can do this!!!

    here are some more;
    lol....


    or this classic we have seen about 50 times,,,,,

    Just go on and on saying how you feel regardless of what the bible really teaches.....make the posts very long.....and remember at all times to oppose the historic confessions of faith!!!

    You should consider what Van has to say. You could learn a lot from him. So many on here have tried to help you with your inaccuracies and wrong conclusions.

    Why not consider listening?

    think all of the cals posting here on the Board have read van, its just that we have a hard time grasping what he is trying to, as much of his conclusions are not found in the Bible...

    Must be the "cal" blinders that are on us!

    AIC,
    Early on I read Vans posts. I tried to interact with him.
    Archangel took the time to go over one or two of Vans posts.
    Van was trying to teach about the "Greek".
    Archangel very graciously worked through Vans 6-7 pet verses and explained that what he was indeed teaching was not possible according to what the verses actually teach.
    Van promptly blew him off,and has posted the same errors....over and over.

    AIC.....there is a vast treasure house of good reading and study material put out from the puritans and reformers. They used the scriptures without re-writing them ...or attempting to re word them.....see post2...

    To read too much error [ Vanwinmanism}and have that error in your mind is not healthy meditation.
    AIC....pick out any thread and see if you do not see the repetive nature of the error....see many give solid responses....see the solid responses completely ignored! They do not want an answer. They are promoting falsehood, against the historic faith of the saints....

    Nobody believes these things they suggest.key an eye out....you will not have to wait long....you will see it as soon as you are looking for it:thumbs:

    Careful AIC.....you almost were included in the title.........Dr. A.I.C. Van Winman....because of your jn 1:9 false rendering...
    Also I never trust or take advice from anyone who plays the banjo....lol

    Judges 12
    5 And the Gileadites took the passages of Jordan before the Ephraimites: and it was so, that when those Ephraimites which were escaped said, Let me go over; that the men of Gilead said unto him, Art thou an Ephraimite? If he said, Nay;
    6 Then said they unto him, Say now Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him, and slew him at the passages of Jordan: and there fell at that time of the Ephraimites forty and two thousand.

    Thankfully, one does not have to read every post by any BB member. Nor agree with what they read from any BB member.

    And MORE thankful that I don't have to respond to every post and can just feel a twinge of Mr T's theology:

    Pity the fool.

    See Jf,
    you are just not following the rules

    1] read the clear passages

    2] quickly re-word them, add or take away words

    3] denigrate any puritan or reformer who actually had a good grasp of truth

    4] then claim your position is so unique that you do not fit under any label

    5] sometimes as a diversion give lip service saying that "some cal ideas are almost biblical"

    6] when anyone actually responds to your post and identifies the error, tell them they misunderstood your post......no one will take the time to go back and check on it anyhow:laugh:

    7] If someone responds with many scripture verses in context then you pull out the "you are so arrogant and rude card"

    8] or the old standby- you know- knowledge puffs up:thumbs:

    I know we differ on Calvinism which is fine. But now you have me perplexed, you don't know what a dobro is. I know I've spend many an hour looking out that windshield listening to the Road Gang or Bill Mack or one of the others and you would hear a good amount of people playing the dobro.

    Here is some dobro playing that I think you will enjoy and appreciate. Rob Ikes is one of the best dobro players Ive ever heard, and here he is playing a beautful rendering of The Old Rugged Cross....

    Tell me what you think!..

    God planned, before the foundation of the earth that He would give His Son a gift, which is the church. Now if God looked down through time to choose all those who would believe in Christ (for salvation/to be the church), and lo and behold there was no one who was going to believe, then God's plan would have been a failure. So....how does God ensure that there will be a church? Doesn't He have to elect people to believe?
    Just a thought.
