Since we have only touched the tip of the iceberg that brings down this "soul not yet saved" doctrine, we will continue with a second thread. All you "said", giving zero support for, concerning Romans 5 is "just because you see the word blood it doesn't mean it is speaking about the soul". That is not showing someone anything. Show me why the blood is not speaking about the soul in Romans 5. Your mind should not be blown at all. If you take the time to answer a few questions for yourself you will see clearly that the soul has been purchased by the blood of Christ and is possessed of Christ. But you clearly ignore this scripture in favor of clinging to this strange doctrine that infiltrated your race. You was probably running a good race until someone threw this monkey wrench onto you. I know my brother was. I will try it again....this new material has been ignored thus far...so give it a shot. Can you answer the following Qs? I gave a hint for 2 and I gave my answer for 4. I would like to hear your answers. Maybe you can change my mind and show me how Christ did not purchase souls with His blood and show me how Christ does not possess these souls until the redemption. Act 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Q1) Who is the church of God? Believers? Yes or No? Q2) Who is the blood an atonement for? A soul? Yes or No? (Leviticus 17:11) Q3) Did Christ's blood purchase souls? Yes or No? Q4) What is the purchased possession? Purchased by the blood is souls. Possessed by Christ is souls. "until the redemption of the purchased possession"....it is already purchased by the blood, it is already owned by Christ, redemption is promissed, therefore Christian souls have been saved, are being saved, and will be saved. James, Peter and Hebrews declares the future finality of this truth. Eph 1:12That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. Eph 1:13In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.) God Bless!
