  1. New Holiness Series Available There is a new series of articles entitled Holiness on my web site. http://www.disciplemakerministries.org/Pages/Holiness/HolinessIndex.htm These articles are in HTML format consisting of 38 individual chapters. These can be used freely for Sunday School classes, or as anyone deems them useful. It is my prayer that these articles will be of help and encouragement to local churches as they seek to disciple souls to the glory of God. Please let others know of the availability of this series.
  2. Dispensationalism and the Doctrine of Election Refutation of Calvinism, Arminianism, and Covenant Theology Chapter Thirteen Understanding Election from the Old Testament and the Unfolding Nature of the Abrahamic Covenant (Romans 9:1-5) http://www.disciplemakerministries.org/ ... mIndex.htm This chapter begins an extensive and inductive exegesis of Romans chapter nine. This chapter alone is 14,978 words. There will be four more chapters of similar length from Romans chapter nine. Again, these studies are not intended for the milk and cookies crowd. If you are not willing to invest the time to read all the articles, please do not post comments or ask questions. Each chapter is a "line upon line" presentation inductively of successive truths built one upon the other. Many of the questions I get are already answered in previous chapters. The fact that the questions are repeatedly asked, reveals that the articles are probably just being skimmed or not read at all. Comments can be left in the Comments Page of the Web Site. http://www.disciplemakerministries.org/ ... mments.htm

  15. Brother Jerry, I agree with what you are saying. However, you are make a leap of logic without connecting it Scripturally to the doctrine of election. You might say something like, "since we have such weight of Scriptural evidence to the contrary, election CANNOT refer to God choosing some people to be saved and others to damnation. Election must refer to something else other than salvation." I do not want to put words in your mouth, but this appears to be what you are saying. If that fact is true, what do the verses mentioning God's election/choosing mean? There are literally hundreds of verses mentioning God's choosing or electing in the Scriptures. Can we show Scriptural evidences that this is in fact the truth that salvation is not the issue of election as the verses you quote appear to teach?
  16. So, what then are you saying? Are you saying that your beliefs regarding the doctrine of election are not based upon the Word of God, but upon your logic? Is there any exegesis of any Bible text that you base this logic upon? Or, are you just pulling your beliefs out of your own mind? I would think you might attempt to find a least some Bible truths to Proof Text those beliefs, even if you are not willing to do the work of inductive exegesis.
  17. You have not shown how any of these verses connect to election or election to salvation. You have merely quoted a number of verses that say "whosoever" can be saved (to which I wholeheartedly say, AMEN!). However, what does this have to do with God's election?
  18. Here it is. I really doubt there will be any real participation because this kind of posting requires some real work. Most people posting in these forums are looking for snack food (milk and cookies). When someone posts something of substance (meat), it is usually too long and never is even read by the milk and cookies crowd. However, I have found some individuals on the OB site posting things of real substance. I always enjoy reading what they have to say (even when they are long posts). http://www.onlinebaptist.com/messageboards/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21925
  19. Since the fall of Satan, the world has had an enemy intent upon opposing the divine order that God established in His original creation. Humanity was divided into two seeds and descendants from those two seeds. These two seed lineages would war against each other until the end of time to the Great White Throne Judgment. God cursed the seed lineage from Satan and promised His eternal blessings upon the Seed lineage from the Promised One (Messiah). Since Satan had already declared war upon God?s dominion decree in giving dominion of His creation to Adam and Adam?s descendants, when Adam chose to disobey God, he relinquished the dominion of the original creation to Satan. From that point forward in time, the world was divided into two factions. Sin caused/created the division, but God?s righteousness brought condemnation (curse) upon sin putting the ?enmity? between the two seed lineages. The Promised One is God?s Son, chosen (elected) from the ?foundation of the world? (Revelation 13:8) to be both the Redeemer of the lost and a new and ?last Adam? (I Cor. 15:45-50) to restore the dominion relinquished to Satan by Adam?s sinful choice. The Promised One (the ?last Adam?) would be successful where the first Adam failed. The Promised One would be the ?firstborn? (Romans 8:29; Col. 1:15-18) of a New Genesis (Matthew 19:28) and would become a ?door? (John 10:1-9) into this New Genesis to ?whosoever? of fallen humanity willing to believe in His death, burial, and resurrection, repent of sin, confess Him as LORD, call on Him to save them, and be supernaturally ?born again? (John 3:3-7, I Peter 1:23) ?by grace through faith? (Eph. 2:8-9) into the New Genesis ?in Christ? (I Cor. 12:12-13; Christ now having primogeniture that provides inheritance of glorification into the New Genesis; Acts 26:18, Eph. 1:11-18, Col. 1:12, 3:24 and, I Peter 1:2-5). Therefore, this whole group that would become the descendants of the Seed of the Promised One ?through faith? (Eph. 2:8-9) would become the elect ?in Christ? (Eph. 1:3-4, II Tim. 1:9).
  20. In order to post on this thread, you must provide at least two or more verses of Scripture to support what you believe the Bible says about God's election. Only the doctrine of Election is to be discussed in this thread. There were two streams of thought on Sola Scriptura coming out of the Reformation. These are radically different positions. The first resulted in a Proof Text Theology. In other words, the already established beliefs of Roman Catholicism were brought to the Scriptures and whatever beliefs the Word of God did not disallow, were continued with proof texts. This was the methodology of Luther and Calvin. The second position was the position of the Anabaptists. This was not a Proof Text Methodology. In this position of Sola Scriptura, a belief could only become dogmatic based upon the weight of Scriptural evidences from the exegesis of a verse within the context it is found. Verses could not be pulled out of their context for a proof text. This was based upon the Scriptural premise of God's Word that says, "that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established" (Matthew 18:16b). This is known an an Inductive Methodology. Therefore, in this thread, every statement of beliefs must be based upon the exegesis of at least two portions of Scripture. The exegesis of those two texts must be explained and shown after which a conclusive statement of beliefs taken directly from those texts can be stated. Discussion must formulate around the exegesis of the texts in order to question the conclusive statement of beliefs. Do not respond to a post until you have read everything the person you are responding to has said and after you have read each verse of Scripture referred to and after you have evaluated those Scriptures in their context.
  21. AMEN! Read I John and underline every time the word "if" is used. Assurance can only be found when the if's are satisfied.
  22. It is not my analysis. It was simply a direct quote from their web site. Obedience is nether a cause or effect of salvation. Obedience is a decision.
