if for some reason was not a Baptist Christian, what Church would you see yourself being a member in, based upon your theological understandings?
Do all "camps" within the ranks of calvinism hold and teach then that faith itself is a direct Gift from God, that we Cannot exercise free will at all, that we MUST be giving it in order to believe and receive in Jesus Christ?
SO Cals all say that we really have no decision to make on Christ, all done beforehand by God, we just "do it?"
is it true that for one to be considered to be really a student of the Bible, would require at least a "working knowledge" of the Greek/Hebrew used to record original manuscripts in by God?

Is it two years, three or five.
Romans 9: 11 " For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calleth."
Paul writes: "But when if pleased God, who had set me apart, even from the womb" at the start of Galatians 1:15. The question is "in what way was Paul set apart?" For salvation? Nope. As a Hebrew? Perhaps. As a person who would become a prophet, a spokesperson of God? Probably.
Paul continues: "and called me through His grace," refers to his Damascus road experience. So this refers to when God's Son revealed Himself to Paul and asked Paul why he was persecuting Jesus. This...
