Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
To do the perfect will of God (Rom. 12:2b), we must first yield ourselves completely to God (Rom. 12:1) for the sake of the gospel (Rom. 1-11)....
1) How would you define a Calvinist in 25 words or less?
2) The term "TULIP" defines a Calvinist - If so, do you have to believe all five to be
considered a Calvinist?

3) What is the difference between a Calvinist and a hyper-calvinist?
Greetings in the name of our Dear Lord and Saviour.
I am sure there are many who have heard, and possibly read some of this Godly man's sermons.
I discovered him about 10 years ago, however in the last 2 years, I've come to read over 25 of his sermon's, and I am presently reading his 52 paged teaching on the "Eternal Sonship of the Lord Jesus Christ" and I am presently on the 22nd page, of this Holy Spirit filled teaching.
During the last 2 years, due to the "plandemic" and the forced and...
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
— Galatians 5:22-23
The stereotype of the mean Calvinist exists for a reason. There’s a reason, after all, that clichés become clichés. If you spend any time in evangelical social media or have a more traveled experience in evangelical churches, you’ve been on the receiving end of a mean Calvinist before. If you’re like me, you’ve...
On another thread (Spiritual Truth and Doctrine )
@AustinC and @Iconoclast made the following complaint:
Spiritual truth is the combination of spiritual words with spiritual thoughts. But yes, this is the working out of our faith in our lives. Honestly, Jon, your first sentence reads like a quote right out of the new age movement. It's a bunch of words with absolutely no substance. I would jettison such an argument as it defines nothing and leaves everything up to mere feelings.
I hear many on here say Paul's command was due to culture. In context, that is utter nonsense. Paul plainly stated the man was created first and the woman was deceived first. Those two facts will never change nor be altered by culture. Just as the pain of childbirth is on woman forever, so is the Biblical command she be subject to man.
I know men who believe that spiritual truth is the understanding or acceptance of doctrine. Scripture, however, seems to indicate otherwise - that the truth of Scripture and the work of the Spirit leads us to spiritual knowledge which is something other than, deeper than, and even more important than simple biblical doctrine.
I have seen Christians with poor theology possess more spiritual truth than seminary professors.
Spiritual truth is how brethern can be united in Christ, refrain...
I have watched the sermons of many pastors, hoping that one could make plain the warnings contained in the Book of Hebrews, but seeing that all discussions of the book are not consistent within, I settled on the one that says it's written for the saints in the tribulation.
in the first thread we were considering a work by Joseph Hussey.
We were asked to examine this.
Is it true?
Is it false?
Is it mostly true, but he has some error?
Is it mostly false, but he has some truth?
As the first thread was derailed I will post some bold but controversial thoughts offered by Mr. Hussey
1]The erroneous and unscriptural teaching of a universal atonement by the sacrifice of...
