Danny, I'm glad to hear you say that you would rather preach the gospel, and include, "Christ died for your sins", than to hold strictly to Calvinism's "Christ only died for you if you are the elect, that God chose before time". There is hope for you, yet.DannyM wrote:Then the Gospel is disingenuous, since that is what we are to preach promiscuously to all. You seem to like to tell us what we believe, but I’ve already told you what I believe. For the sake of the Gospel I’ll believe, yes, Christ died for your sins. I’m doing what is required. If it turns out I was wrong then I was wrong for the sake of the Gospel. You want to ascribe to the Calvinist a contradiction of heart when proclaiming Christ. The way you are going about showing this is not convincing, to say the least.jlay wrote: I am not saying you are lying. I am saying it is disingenoius. If you say to someone, Jesus died for your sins. You don't really believe that. What you beleive is, IF you are elect, Jesus died for your sins. If the person is repropate, then to present them the gospel is to ask THEM to believe a lie.
Now, all you have to do, is admit you're wrong for the sake of the gospel, now.
