seems that whenever we start discussion in area of Sotierology, that it quickly becomes a heated debate, without much evidence of Christian behavior among the bethren!
can't we at least agree to quite ridiculing, talking down to, stop making it seem that God is a "true blue' calvinist or Arminian?
can the Beast and false prophet EVER happened in past, as he was always still here restraing them from appearing?
Doesn't this show us the Futurist approach to events still best to take from Bible?
That in ourselves, both spiritual dead to God, and unable to even come to Him in a saving sense?
Brothers, I am sorry that I did not respond in the last thread until after it was closed. I do not want to swat the hornet's nest, but I want to address two posts that were directed at me. Please, let's keep this civil.

Well, Brother Webdog, I see it like this; God when He...
I am of the belief that the phrase "not under the law" is very miss-understood by many today. In fact there are those who name the name of the Lord and do not even want to hear anything mentioned about commands or rules or what ever some may like to call it.
I would like to hear what you feel is being said when scripture says "not under the law".
I am giving the passages where it is used as well as some about law. So what is your understanding?

Tomorrow morning I am informing my department director that my direct boss has been stealing thousands of dollars from the company for months.

Basically my manager has been purchasing laptops from a vendor and reselling them some how. Recently I came across the invoices for 23 Apple MacBook Pros that were purchased. We have a...
This is the opposite end of the spectrum from Bobinkys’ “What is Hyper-Calvinism?” post.
This is the extreme of Arminianism that goes to the logical end resulting in humanism and other error.
Hyper-Arminianism leads to Word-Faith theology.
Hyper-Arminianism leads to Copeland theological error, that God is a helpless being, who has failed, and depends upon man to “let him in.”
Hyper-Arminianism leads to limiting God, stripping Him of Omniscience.

Acts 2:41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
Today I reflected on the happenings on this Penticost and specifically about this verse. A few questions came to mind:
1) "Those who accepted his message" - those that got saved
2) "were baptized" - does this mean that they necesarily were all baptized in one day?
3) "three thousand were added" - were they added because they believed or because they were baptized?
