How are believers kept unto salvation?
a) by the power of God
b) by the power of self
c) by the power of God plus self
Here is a passage of scripture to help you with your answer; 1 Peter chp 1......
(1) "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,"
(2) "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus...
Based upon that passage, what did jesus mean by "many are called, but few are chosen?"
Hyper-Calvinists openly assert everything is predestine. Boettner says everything is predestined. But is that Biblical.
No. This thread is not about Omniscience, no matter how it is defined. According to Arminianism, God knowing the future exhaustively does not predestine it. We must set aside this issue and stick with the scope of predestination.
If everything is predestined, that is Closed Theology and God is the Author of Sin, just as the Hyper-Calvinisms claim.
A recent article points to a historiclowintithing among Americans, which should come as no surprise to anyone who plays a role in trying to balance church budgets these days.
Programs are being cut, mission offerings sliced, and staff positions pared away because the money that used to fund them just isn't there anymore.
The recession plays a role, but by no means the only one.
The once-common practice of tithing is fading away, and sometimes with the encouragement of church leaders...
Wouldn't the act of mass and resacrificing Him be in violation of the bible, and thus face the chance of being in comdemnation by God for trampling underfoot the blood of jesus shed upon the Cross as FULL and ONLY atonement for salvation?
why would literal versions get tagged as being wooden, not so good to use for study, while less literal versions seen as being sperior to study bible in?
As council of Trent stated ANY who rejected the mass, sacremenatll salvation, saved by faith and Grace ALONE were cursed/damned by God?
Give me and answer a child can grasp......I give them eternal life and they shall never perish. John 10:28 And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life Matthew 25:46 So unless someone says that even a child cannot understand this...eternal means forever. So the simple math would be once born again always born again.
Being recognized as a Roman Catholic Saint is a long road.
Methods have changed over the past 17 centuries.
Currently one part of the canonization is evidence of one miracle. Since miracles are considered proof that the person is in heaven and can intercede for us. (bold emphasis mine)
Would you consider this idolatry? The RC church says no, because it nothing more than a person carrying a picture of person in their wallet.
