    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.

    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.

    ''Election'' has to do with purpose or service; Angels, Israel, and even the Lord Jesus are ''elect''.

    "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.

    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.

    Yes, Brother Wretched, it makes sense . . . IF we are parsing sinful actions from sinful attitudes in relation to the matter of repentance, and IF the wickedness of Simon was the sinful attitude of unbelief.  However, I myself would take issue with this for the following reasons:
    1.  I would NOT parse sinful actions from sinful attitudes in relation to the matter of repentance.  Rather, I would contend that the matter of repentance encompasses any and all sinfulness, including BOTH sinful actions and sinful attitudes, BOTH sinful speech and sinful thoughts.
    2.  I would contend that Simon's wickedness was NOT the sinful attitude of unbelief, but was the thought that spiritual blessings can be purchases with carnal money (in principle - the thought that carnal means are the way to spiritual progress).  Consider Acts 8:18-23 -- "And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.  But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.  Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.  Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.  For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity."  Throughout this I do not see any place wherein Peter accuses Simon concerning the sinful attitude of unbelief.  Rather, it appears to me that Peter accused Simon concerning the sinful attitudes of materialism (as the means for spiritual progress) and of bitterness.  In fact, the Holy Spirit inspired Word of God itself reports that Simon DID believe.  Even so, BEFORE the event of Acts 8:18-23, the opening line of Acts 8:13 reports, "Then Simon himself believed also."

    Brethren,
    I stated the above statement on August 9, 2016.
    Today, I saw the attached article, "Trump and Reagan Shared a Common Goal, American Greatness." http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/01/20/trump-and-reagan-shared-common-goal-american-greatness.html
    The article explains my thoughts on the purpose of this thread. I want America to be a great country with high ideals, patriotism, cleanse our government of wasteful agencies, and regulations, run our government on the Constitution of the United States and not on Socialist, Communist, activists, liberal, or Muslim agendas.
    God Bless America!

    Thus far it is also my thoughts that president Trump has succeeded in helping the American economy, the Judicial system, cleaning some of the government bureau's of dead weights, and has accomplished draining the swamp somewhat. Now,  if some of the liberals, Socialists, activist groups, and RINO's would stop their relentless attacks, the Lord God above could use President Trump to accomplish more for America.
