What is the one factor that made the difference. Was it God's intervention? Or was it man's own ability?
peace to youraying:
How about it? Take the poll, please. I'd like to know if respect for elders is still alive in America.
Growing up, I was taught to show respect to all older people. We said "Yes sir" and "No Ma'am," didn't talk back, didn't make fun of older people. I may have been out of the States for too long, but judging by some of the young folk on the BB, that custom has gone by the wayside. They mock older people, they insult us, they condescend to us. And woe be to the old codger who rebukes the...

It is always the same old beating around the bush, but never owning the view. Calvin says man because of the fall is unable to seek God and therefore always chooses sin. Yet this does not make God the "author of sin." With this perverse logic you could pull the wings off a fly and then punish the fly for not flying. It is simply absurd. A moving the goal post argument and...
Suppose that you, a true child of God, sinned yesterday at noon. Why did you sin? What was the determining factor that caused you to sin? Explain why you chose your answer.
And please don't say "both," if God's will determines the will of the believer then the determining factor is God, not man.
On another thread i posted these scriptures
DO YOU WANT ETERNAL LIFE
MATT.19  And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false...
On another thread, I voiced the opinion that the New Birth is not a instantaneous event. Here is something I wrote on the subject a while ago to start discussion.
Everyone who is predestined is effectually called by God at some time in their lives. A large congregation may listen to a gospel sermon, but perhaps just one or two are affected by it; or someone may hear a portion of scripture, or perhaps just look at the beauty of nature and it sets him on a train of thought which will...
I am in a Fundamentalist churches and like all IFB churches in my area dress code for men is suit & tie. No official dress code in stone, but thats the way everyone dresses. When I was in a SBC church most did not dress this way and the degree and type of dress varied from SBC church to SBC church. I do not always feel like dressing up for church, so sometimes I do and sometimes I do not. I do not dress down (shirt & shorts, t-shirt, jeans) as when I do not wear a tie and suit, I will dress...
When the jailer asked Paul, "What must I do to be saved?" Was he already born again (regenerated)?
If not, why did he even seek the answer to this question considering that the natural man would never seek God?
If so, then can you answer Charles Spurgeon's question for me:
"If I am to preach the faith in Christ to a man who is regenerated, then the man, being regenerated, is saved already, and it is an unnecessary and ridiculous thing for me to preach Christ to him, and bid him to...
Doctrines of the Gospel that have been neglected, such as Election of Grace, the quickening of the Spirit or Regeneration, these things have been relegated to a sub group and apart from the Gospel of God's Grace.
As the Gospel is the good news of Salvation, and Salvation is only by the Grace of God. So what doctrines in the bible enumerate what God has purposed and accomplished to save His People by Grace ?
For God had promised to save His People from their sins Matt 1:21, and the Gospel...
