    Acts 18

    What grace did these folks have, that caused them to believe?

    Saving grace?

    Hey James, good to see you make an appearance occasionally. And quite a nice grenade to throw into the room to herald your arrival, eh?

    I think the answer to your question is, yes.

    Hello Tom

    I agree. :)

    As to my popping in...

    I have been busy on a few projects. Another book is in the works.(A Pure Love)..and still more newspapers LINK to write for. Also I started writing for the Examiner as the National Calvinist (Calvinism Examiner). LINK

    That on top of pastoring a church, .....planting a church, ...LINK and working with my Son-in-law as he Reforms his church (LINK) (Matt..just embraced the full doctrines of grace in the last two months). God is working great in WV.

    Acts 18:27 When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed


    What grace did these folks have, that caused them to believe?

    Saving grace?[/QUOTE]

    Grace is unmerited favor. The unmerited favor they received was the gift of faith following regeneration.

    There is "salvific grace" which brings a person to salvation and "enabling grace" which enables a Christian to endure suffering/persecution for the cause of Christ in the world.

    peace to you:praying:
