    "every man the measure of faith"

    Can any Calvinist rightly divide and then deny this Scripture?

    Paul is writing to, and speaking of, believers, telling them how they should conduct themselves in light of the fact that God has justified and saved them. Do you deny that every believer in Christ has a measure of faith?

    Speaking of dividing, Salamander!!

    Use the entire passage including this snippet from the same verse..

    "to every man that is among you"

    Here is the whole verse...

    Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace that was given me, TO EVERY MAN THAT IS AMONG YOU, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think as to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to each man a measure of faith.

    As Ransom said, Paul was speaking to the men who were among them.

    Ah, yes..... context. An oft-neglected concept. [​IMG]
