Re: Is God a Monster?

I'll be honest and say I don't know where I land. I wake up day to day, sometimes an Arminian (as Arminius taught it, holding to total depravity, as well as other tenants that most Calvinist claim as their own, and most Arminians reject by way of seeing it comes from Calvinists - see Robert. E. Pici...

Re: (T)ULIP

Jaydam, I am currently a fence-rider, between Arminianism and Calvinism. So let me answer succinctly, I think, of how most Calvinists I've read might respond. Does Calvinism fall apart if Total Depravity is taken away? If Total Depravity is "taken away," that is, if the idea that the mind is hostile...

What is the Treasury of Merit?

I've been studying Roman Catholicism to better understand two of my friends who are in this church (and I believe Gospel-loving, Jesus-centered Christians). And I came across a "doctrine" or belief in the "treasury of merit." The person I'm listening to lectures on the matter (who I care not to disc...

Re: John 6:44

Hi remade, It's been helpful for me to think of it this way. Only people who come to God of their own free will are God's. God gives Christ all of those who are God's to give. People come first to God by listening and obeying. If someone has truly done this, then God draws them to Christ. That's wh...

Re: John 6:44

Doug- That is an interesting theory, and not outside the realm of possibility. But the reference to John 6:44, and 54 is an obvious reference to salvation and eternal life, " Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day, ". Also, the inclusi...

John 6:44

Perhaps this has been a verse addressed already in this forum, but after looking through a few of the first few pages, I didn't find anything I thought related specifically to this above verse. In John 6:44, Jesus says in context: 41 So the Jews grumbled about him, because he said, “I am the bread t...

An Arminian Piper / Driscoll / Sproul / Keller?

I read an article once on Roger Olsen's blog about John Piper answering the question, "Why are there no solid Arminian preachers?" In other words, when we think about book-store Christian authors, we either usually run in to prosperity-theologians, or die-hard Calvinists. Piper responded, "Well let'...

Dispensationalist Question: Gentile-Converts to Jews

A question that was asked to me recently, that I have yet to ask a Dispensationalist, is I was wondering what is the take for a pre-millenial, pre-trib rapture, with "God dealing with the unbelieving Jews separately," at the end of the world, after the rapture... in this mindset, my question is: wil...

Re: Why get emotional about eschatology?

Matthew 24 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. So, Remade, the coming of Jesus on the clouds of heaven and great glory is just figurativ...
