A close relative of mine would go to Christian refugee in Europe every year for two weeks over a period of nine years. He told me about a time when he thought a man spoke English and so he spoke to the man in English, but the man did not speak English. They understood each other well and each spoke in their own language. After an hour he realized the man did not speak English and was a Kurd who left his homeland. Another man who was there had a similar with a man who only spoke Swahili. Each...
27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
30 The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, 31 because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

3. Witness of the Spirit
The old Methodist would simply call this, “getting religion” and if they could not discern the Spirit of Christ they would tell you to, “come back tomorrow night” (as they were frequently in revival) and smile a little as they said it. Once you came through they would in the words of the Apostle Paul, “glorified God in me” (Galatians 1:24). George Clark...
Daniel 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
This verse provides a good test case for how people approach interpreting the Bible. If one believes that he must say only what the text says, then certain things would seem to necessarily follow:
Daniel did not reject the worship that was offered him on this occasion. He could have recoiled and run away from the king the instant...
There are some who claim that the reformed position that mankind, because of the fall, is unable to seek God for salvation (without His intervention) due to their fallen nature, makes God cruel and unjust for requiring something (faith) they are unable to give.
They also claim that such belief makes God responsible for man’s sin because he was so “constituted” by God after the fall that they would always act according to their sin nature and had no choice to do otherwise.
I want to show...
By any chance can you start another thread sharing the source or link to these 14 changes done by this great prelate?
There are several sources that refer to the 14 changes, but I do not know of one that lists what all fourteen were. The 1648 sermon by Thomas Hill lists several of them.
Is there such a thing as demonic instrumental music?
If such music exists, what is it?
If such music exists, what all can we know about it?
If such music exists, is God pleased with any of it?
In another thread about to be closed, opponents of the reformed position say the offer of salvation is insincere because the person is unable to respond in faith, having not been chosen by God.
These same folks acknowledge that God knows who will believe and who will reject the gospel.
The question is... Is the person able to respond differently than what God has already foreseen?
The answer is clearly “no”.
So, if the person is unable to respond to the gospel in faith in both cases,...
