    heartstrings got a reaction from Alan in Calvinism or Arminianism? How do you answer?   
    It's not what we think but what the Bible says. The Bible says that "God so loved the world" not some of the world. The Bible says that "God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked". The Bible says that "God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance". The Bible documents that people can hear the Gospel, be convicted, and then reject it of their own free will. And God has documented that He loves people who He knows will reject Him. I can give you more but I'm kind of busy right now.

    1 John 3:2 (KJV) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
    Humanly speaking we become sons, or children by birth. We become the son, or child of our father by birth. Likewise we also become sons, or children of God by the new Birth. Following logic, has anyone ever been able to become unborn of his earthly father? He may renounce his sonship, but he cannot undo his birth as a son of his father. His birth was an act of his father, which was past tense and cannot be undone. He can deny he is a son, but that does not change the fact that he was born of his father. There is no act of his own that can change that.
    So then; can you lose your salvation? Once you are born of God, how do you become unborn? In answer one might also ask; can anyone actually go back and undo the fact that he was born a son of his father?
    Once a son, always a son.
    Galatians 4:6 (KJV) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

    heartstrings reacted to PastorMatt in My Own Traveling Singing Group   
    The Lord has blessed me with opportunities to travel through out the Northeast preaching at different Churches and Baptist Colleges. Due to the virus all my recent meetings have been cancelled, but I'm looking forward to starting up again when this is over. 
    Anyways, I recently (3 weeks ago) took my girls and one of our church teens with me to preach at Vision Baptist College in NJ to look at the school and sit in on classes. While I was there to preach I figured I'd let the girls sing in chapel. 
    The girl playing the piano & the girl on the right are my daughters, and the girl on the left is a teen that was saved on our bus ministry and is looking at attending a good Bible college.

    heartstrings reacted to Alan in Making America Great Again   
    I do keep abreast of the news in China (Communist), Taiwan (Free China), and Hong Kong.
    President Trump, many times, in order to assure the world that the United States is a free Republic (Democratic), has stood up to the communist leaders. President Trumps actions, not just words, is good for America and our ideals that our Founding Fathers set forth in the Constitution.
    https://www.thenewamerican.com/print-magazine/item/34946-hong-kongers-heroic-fight
    In the article is the following quote, "President Donald Trump is the first occupant of the White House since the communists came to power in China in 1949 to reverse the suicidal policies of the United States vis-à-vis China. Having already hit the Beijing regime with tariffs and put them on notice that the United States would not continue ignoring their closed markets, huge subsidies to Chinese corporate “champions,” and violations of intellectual property rights, President Trump also signaled that he wouldn’t follow the Bush example of looking the other way if China chose to send the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) into the streets of Hong Kong as it did at Tiananmen 30 years ago."
    In my understanding, President Trump, and his stand against the communists, is good for America and the freedom that we enjoy.

    "Predestination has to do with God's perfect plan and design. Concerning believers , the King James always always speaks of a collective when referring to "predestination" by using plural pronouns like "we, they, them, us, ye or you". it never refers to individuals. The "Bride of Christ" will one day be presented to Him spotless.     because "She" meaning "we" will be conformed to the image of Christ, perfectly sinless, in glorified bodies. Not a single person will get the credit for this because God "predestinated" all of it before the world existed. Each individual has to believe on Jesus Christ, of his own freewill, to become a member of the "bride". This too is included in God's will and perfect design. He doesn't want rOBots to worship Him: he wants free will.

    heartstrings got a reaction from Katie in Is it possible to renounce salvation?   
    Have you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ to save your wicked soul from God's judgement in Hell and, been indwelled with the Holy Spirit? If so, you cannot be lost: ever. Please read the following verse carefully.
    John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    #1. If you possess(hath) everlasting life....it's "everlasting"
    #2. "Shall not" means "condemnation" is never going to happen.
    There are other verses but this one should be sufficient for now.

    I assume that in this thread discussion we are speaking only about the doctrine of salvation (soteriology).  As such . . .
    Of the five points commonly argued, I would hold to ZERO points with Calvinism, THREE points with Arminianism, and TWO points with neither one.

    I say I'm neither. 
    My impression of calvinisim is they do not call out for salvation.. they are chosen before they believe. I believe a sinner does call out for salvation. Akin to Romans 10.
     
    My impression of Arminianism is they believe salvation can be lossed. I don't believe it can. According to the likes of John 3:16, 5:24, 3:36 among many other verses. 
    So neither

    Three things would have caused me not to vote for Trump...
    1. If he favors abortion.
    2. If he favors same sex marriage.
    3. If he favors liberal Supreme Court Justices.
    So, I voted on Nov. 1, my birthday, for Mr. Trump as POTUS.

    Never, ever be alone with the opposite sex or someone else's children/grandchildren. That way you are far less likely to be falsely accused. And never leave your kids alone with someone else, even a preacher or deacon: If a preacher or deacon is what he ought to be, he will insist on that as well. Our church always has two attendants in the nursery, and "children's church" at all times.

    I completely agree with the point of what you’re saying. However, Namaan served a Gentile king in a foreign nation that neither served God nor honored His Laws. This was a different king and court than the one in dispute.
