Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Look at the time terms found in bold in the above text! 1. It is "when we were enemies......we were reconciled" NOT before we were enemies in eternity past or at the cross! 2. The transition point between "were" and "being reconciled' is "NOW RECEIVED" 3. In context the time "RECEIVED" has been spelled out and repeated over and over again previous to Romans 5:10-11 or when they were "justified by faith" - Romans 5:1; Romans 4:5-11; Romans 3:25-28. 4. The time of justification was not PAST TENSE but it is presented as FUTURE TENSE and conditioned upon "IF WE BELIEVE ON HIM we SHALL BE justified" - Rom. 4:24 5. The "death of Christ" is merely presented as the basis WHEN IT WAS RECEIVED as the object of faith for justification! SBM can flap his jaws all he likes, yell, scream, kick, name call and throw temper tantrum's but it does not change these grammatical facts one iota.
