  1. The problem with Calvinism is that the idea of limited atonement spreads through the rest of the doctrines. For example, Calvinism would say that because atonement is limited (i.e.:God only died for the elect), therefore His grace, when extended is irresistible. It would claim Perseverance of the Saints (which is not the same as Eternal Security) because since man couldn't pick to get saved, he certainly can't pick to get unsaved! "A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump." Because of this overlapping of doctrine, I really don't think people can be 'partial' Calvinists. You either are or yo

  2. "The Pursuit of Holiness" and "The Discipline of Grace" are both excellent books by Jerry Bridges.

  3. At my former IFB church, couples with newborns were asked to the front of the church, where everyone would pray over the baby. As I recall, I did that with all three of mine. I see nothing at all wrong with that as it was done and I've never heard of anyone basing their salvation on being 'dedicated' as a baby, in this manner. I look at that as simply a public 'testimony' of one's intentions to raise their children for Jesus.

    Good Study Bible

    Thanks for everyone's help! After thinking about it more, I guess I just need one that better explains out-dated words. I don't necessarily need a commentary on the verses, as much as I would like a built in dictionary!! I don't know if one even exists...

    Good Study Bible

    I agree. I've yet to see a study Bible that doesn't contain a good deal of questionable or outright wrong ideas put forth. Another problem with some study Bibles is they don't really address the verses one really has questions about but they will put notes in there about verses that are often really clear. Much harm and damage has been done and passed on because of study Bibles.

  6. Forget study bibles, those "helps" are man's word about what things mean, not God's. Even the famed old schofield has its problems.

  7. Well, being neither a John R. Rice follower nor a Scofield follower, I will still give my thoughts on the subject... 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. All church members are baptized into the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wasn't given until Acts 2. Therefore, I believe the church started in Acts 2.
