    It is true His death was necessary, for without Him pouring out His blood unto the death, there would be no resurrection.

    Again, if you believe folk wind up in hell for their sins, even after Christ has died for them, its apparent you dont believe Christs death saved whom He died for.. Now how is that Faith in Christ ?

    BF do you not read the whole bible? The truth is there for you to find. I and others have pointed to to it a number of times yet you still seem unable or more likely unwilling to accept the truth of scripture. That is really sad for one that claims to be a Christian.

    He who believes is not condemned. He who does not believe is condemned already.

    Jesus died for ALL SIN for ALL people "the world John 3: 16), except for the sin of unbelief.

    why do churches make this so difficult?

    What is sad is that you dont believe that Jesus Christ death, saved, healed them He died for. 1 Pet 2:24

    It did

    But he will not force it on them, they must receive it in faith

    He is not that kind of God that forces people to trust him

    if they reject him, they will remain dead because of lack of belief and remain in a condemned state

    Who generates the faith, God or man? You point to man when you use the word "they." Thus you teach works salvation apart from grace.

    So he won't save a person enslaved in sin unless that person gives expressed permission to God that He can save them?

    You make man greater than God in power and authority.

    First, you have a dead in sins person making a choice about being made alive. You ignore the words "But God."
    Second, apparently Jesus atonement didn't pay for the sin of unbelief in your thinking since their choice to not believe is the only thing that causes God not to believe.
    Third, you make Paul's words of no importance: "And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?" (Romans 10:14)
    Since you place rejection as the only cause, you also must advocate never sharing the gospel so that no one has the opportunity to choose to not believe. No knowledge equals no choice equals salvation because no rejection. Do you see your error?

    So, regardless of hearing or not, all who don't confess Jesus are condemned by their unpaid sins.

    So, all sins are fully paid for, except one sin, which you label as unbelief.
    Yet Paul says: "And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?"
    If they never hear, they can never not believe, therefore don't share the gospel is the best policy to save the entire world.

    Second, Jesus atonement is limited, not by God's choice, but by man's choice. This makes men more powerful than God.

    Do you see your contradiction yet?

    Why do you make grace and God's Supremacy so unimportant in salvation? Why do you fall back on salvation by human works while denying God's grace alone?

    In Jesus own words

    He who believes is NOT CONDEMNED
    He who does not believe IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, Because they HAVE NOT BELIEVED

    so your argument is with him. not me


    Belief is not a work my friend. This fatalistic view is nonsensical. I am not believing in my works. I am entrusting my soul to God and his work and his promise. I can not take credit or boast in myself. I can only boast in God who saved me.

    first off.

    You have a man made alive while still in sin. This causes God to go against his own character.

    the penalty of sin is death, Until that penalty is removed, the person is dead

    Passing from death to life is a process called regeneration

    Having ones sins forgiven or remitted is called justification.

    hence Justification MUST precede sanctification.

    as for never heard.. Romans 1 answers that question. No one has an excuse. because God has shown himself to everyone.

    You must not get this wrong. The way is narrow and few find it we are told by one who knows. The way requires squeezing through this narrow way. It is not broad enough to accommodate two different ways of getting through but if God takes you through it doesn't really matter how broad or narrow it is and this information about it being narrow amounts to nothing in your confused world.

    BF I will put this in simple language for you, try to understand.

    What does the bible tells us about who Christ died for?
    1Ti_2:5-6 who gave Himself a ransom for all
    Heb_2:9 might taste death for everyone
    Joh_3:15 whoever believes in Him
    Joh_3:17 the world
    1Jn_2:2 sins of the whole world
    Rom_5:6 Christ died for the ungodly
    2Pe_2:1 false teachers
    Eph_5:25 the Church
    Gal_2:20 gave Himself for me. {Paul / me}

    1Ti_4:10 Savior of all men, especially of those who believe
    Note the two groups mentioned here "all men" which would include the non believers and the ones that latter actually did believe.

    I know this a really hard concept for you to understand but the bible is clear Christ died for all humanity so that all could be saved but it is only those that actually believe in Him that will be saved.

    You are holding onto one verse and ignoring the rest of the bible. The bible is the authority not your calvinism. Your philosophy is keeping you from knowing the real Christ Jesus and salvation through Him. You continue to ignore the bible at your peril.

    The way is the way of repentance of sins and faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ and the way is open. Whoever will may enter. However, if God does not open our hearts to receive the Gospel, no one would ever find it. Psalms 14:2-3; John 3:19; 5:40; Romans 3:10-11 etc. It is described as narrow because sinful men and women cannot enter laden down by their sins. But I see nothing that prohibits either Arminians or Calvinists from entering.

    Austin your constant strawman arguments are so unbiblical as to be insulting. You think that your false theology of calvinism is true and that it should overrule the bible. Paul says faith is not a work, which you have been told numerous times, but then again why would you believe the bible it does fit with your philosophy.

    Get past your errant theology and actually trust what the bible says, not what you want it to say.

    He died for the sin of unbelief too. You have to repent of the sin of unbelief and then believe, same as any other sin.

    If you believe Jesus died for all the sins of all men, and yet some men perish in their sins in unbelief, then you deny the saving efficacy of Christs death.

    Your understanding has put you in a bad place, you are denying what scripture affirms, that those whom Christ died, His death healed them, saved them 1 Pet 2:24

    24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were heale

    Again, read Jesus words

    He who BELIEVES is not condemned
    He who DOES NOT BELIEVE is condemned already

    All have sinned and fall short. Jesus died for every sin.

    He did not die for the sin of unbelief. If he did then everyone would be saved..
