    I am not a 'Calvinist'.

    Calvin oversaw my people burned at the stake.

    They preceded Calvin by one thousand six-hundred plus years.

    Just as Jesus Did, Who Divinely Originated He 'Kind' of church assembly, with The Authority of God to baptise.

    Calvin murdered them for that.

    I am a child of those who perished in the flames.

    "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

    There is a reason you can not crucify your flesh enough to know that people do not put their socks over on top of their shoes.

    Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."

    Free will has the free will to fall short of The Glory of God.

    So be it.

    That which is born of flesh is flesh.

    Free to be flesh.

    Nothing more.

    Jesus Divinely Originated He 'Kind' of church* assembly, with The Authority of God to baptise, Commissioned her, and Promised that He would be with them, until the End of The Age.

    Church Truth is predominant throughout The New Testament, but has no relevance prior to conviction of sin and bringing forth fruit meet for showing Repentance and Faith have already taken place.

    no Command of God to 'reform' anything: GOD SAID of THE ANTICHRIST, “Come out of her, My people, so that you are not a partaker of her sins”

    a brief reference to Calvin: John Calvin justified killing his theological opponents with the Bible

    * each mention of the word church refers to 'a called-out assembly', exclusively, without exception, in The Bible.

    8.0.5b TEN SCRIPTURAL PROOFS of ‘The Churches that JESUS BUILT’ AND PROMISED TO BE WITH, “ALWAYS”.

    8.0.0 Bibliography: JESUS’ churches, called ‘Ana’-Baptists, or ‘Re’-Baptizers, were NEVER Catholics or Protestants.



    reference to another 'gospel' Protestant heresy of infant 'baptism'. awareofthegodhead.wordpress.com
    ! 0.2.4 ALARM: ANOTHER GOSPEL ( invented __1600’s A.D. ) The ETERNALLY FATAL MISTAKES of ‘Protestant Reformers/ Covenant Theology’: HAVE NO OTHER “gods” BEFORE ME: “to thy seed” is Not Salvation.

    1.0.2b Carnal Reformed Protestant Covenant ‘Theology’. “BAPTISM” DOES NOT COUNT FOR YOU, or YOUR BABY’S, “RELATIONSHIP to GOD”.

    8.5.2c i: ‘Infant Baptism’: The third great Anti-Christian error, introduced by Satan in FALSE RELIGIOUS ‘churches’ THAT SEPARATED FROM JESUS’ CHURCHES.

    Are you not a Trinitarian?
    Revelation 2:5 (KJV) Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

    Revelation 2:16 (KJV) Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

    Revelation 3:3 (KJV) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

    Revelation 3:19 (KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    Four verses Teaching, "Repent".

    My blog is "AwareofThe Godhead".

    Maybe you should be more aware of the Godhead. Jesus is telling the churches to repent, or go back to doing what you were doing at the first. That’s another way of saying “reform”.

    Dependance on the order of wording in a statement by Barnaba in 70 A.D., for Eternal 'Salvation', is not ASSURANCE.

    All SAVED Souls must have ASSURANCE of SALVATION before becoming a candidate for Scriptural baptism, to become a member of one of The Lord's Kind of churches.

    Agreed! A distinction which is Biblical and which our Calvinist brethren would do well to consider.

    You mean a new convert must have perfect faith before being baptized? I guess nobody but you will ever be baptized.

    Free Will to fall short of The Glory of God is not a decision to Partake of The Divine Nature.

    No one you ever know will have Salvation by perfect faith.

    Discussing God's Revelations and Commands regarding Worshipping Him, Organizationally, are only relevant to those who have been Enabled to Repent of their Free Will.

    Salvation precedes Worship.

    I got the same sequence of posts. I’m pretty sure he’s copying them from a website he referred me to.
