Since I have been on this forum (since 2001) there has consistently been the accusation Calvinism denies a universal aspect of the Cross. Specifically this comes up in opposition to the view that the work of the Cross was such that all who believed would be saved. In other words, the opposing position is an argument against what is said through assuming what is not said.
I realize that Calvinism (just like non-Calvinism) comes in many colors. But are there any doctrines of Calvinism that...

In the topic The Flat Earth myth and the Bible we took a temporary trail of discussion about whether Moses wrote the Pentateuch. I though it might be worthy of its own thread. I'll start.

The rest of the Old Testament also testifies to Moses as the author of the Pentateuch. Statements in the New Testament confirm Moses...
There is a teaching called Soul Sleep... What is it exactly and is it scriptural?... What happens to the soul according to scripture at the point of each believers death?... I discovered this article that can explain it better than I can because, this is how I believe it and I'm sure there are many on here that see it the same way... At the point of death there is sadness for those loved ones left behind but for believers there is?... I don't want to spoil it, read the article and find...
Where do we go from here? The most prolific poster on parts 7 & 8 posted 1-liners that did not contribute to understanding. We did reply to a number of these in the hope that he & others would read carefully & contribute positively.
