Hi all, The logic of the day seems to teach that if God gives a man a command, the man must have the ability to obey the command, or God wouldn't be fair. God commands people to believe and repent, so people must be able (within themselves) to believe and repent. Right? In the 5th chapter of Matthew, Jesus commanded us to be perfect. Many a theologian--such as Pelagius, John Wesley, and Charles Finney--taught that we can (in this life) be perfect. What do you think of this?
