OlBrotherDC reacted to Ukulelemike in Did Jonah die while he was in the belly of the fish?
Agreed-he did not die-the comparison Jesus made was only to the time he would be in the grave, not anything concerning Jonah's death. Jonah was clearly alive and unhappy about it, and such was the intent, to cause him to repent and bend to the Lord's will.

Hard to pray when you're dead.
The Bible says Jonah prayed 'out of the whale's belly'. If he was dead, wouldn't he have prayed 'out of Abraham's bosom' (like Lazarus)? I think the analogy here was to the 3 days/nights, not the actual death.

Konstantin, while much of the things you post are veritable gobbelty-gook, because you patch together bits and pieces of verses and phrases that often have nothing to do with each other, so as to make your case seem biblical, yet it borders on, if not being outright, heresy. You create doctrines out of patchwork, then declare this to be truth. Your understanding of scripture is severely flawed. I don't know who taught you to rightly divide scripture this way, but you need to read and understand scripture according to context.
Your verse given above has nothing to do with salvation by grace through faith alone-the Lord God called certain people to work with Christ while in His earthly ministry, but now, whosoever will may come to salvation, because Jesus said if He "be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." (Jn 12:32) See, that is how you add a reference: it is in exact context to what I am speaking of, and to answer your argument. Jesus draws ALL men to Him from the cross, where He died for the sin of the entire world, while in the verse you gave, that was referring to the time of Jesus' earthly ministry.
OlBrotherDC reacted to SureWord in Calvinism or Arminianism? How do you answer?
You're agrument is truth based on tradition. That's the same approach the Roman Catholic Church takes. Because they were allegedly first means they are the most scriptural or "the one true church" when it only means they have been pulling the wool over everyone's eyes the longest.

God Would Have ALL Men to be Saved!! 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. == A stake in the false teaching Calvinism's heart!
