    How is He?
    Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    Yes, proverbs 16:9
    Another way of putting it. You make the choices, God controls the consequences.

    Yes, God is telling you that He has complete freedom to do as He chooses. Yet you think He denies the same freedom to mankind? What He wants you to know that He could squash us all like ants if He wanted to but the good news is; He doesn't want to.  And you deny a God like that?

    Sir, the Arabs began attacking Israel since before the nation was officially reestablished in 1948. They're still doing it with suicide bombings, rocket attacks etc... The military offensives in Gaza, last year, were a response to the constant harassment, kidnappings, murders and rocket attacks.

    Each individual "Jew" must come to Jesus or die without Him and go to Hell; same as everyone else. And I know all about us being "children of Abraham" by faith and the new birth. But God is not finished with the nation of Israel.

    Yes, we know that.  They always have been. Doesn't change the fact that they're God's chosen nation.

    Amen

    The Bible does not mention the words "total depravity" or "freewill".
    It does tell us that we are born sinners, (Romans 5:12) hopeless and helpless without Christ. And it gives the command to all of us......BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ. CHOOSE LIFE.

    Genesis 3:4King James Version (KJV)
    4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
    and the Calvinist/Monergist/? says "all doesn't really mean all"
     
     
    2 Corinthians 11
    3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
    4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
     
     
    It's really simple. Jesus tasted death for every man, he's willing that all should come to repentance, his gift came upon all men, he died for the world. The "GLORY" that God receives in all eternity will not be that he forcibly saved some and sent others to Hell: No, the ultimate glory will be the manifestation of his BOUNDLESS love. it will be revealed that God loved even men like Jeffery Damer, Adolf Hitler. Pol Pot, the men of Sodom, you, me and the most wicked, ungodly you can think of, so much that He gave his only begotten son to die for even them, God's glory is manifest in his selfless love which, as the poet said "if we with ink the ocean fill and were the sky with parchment  made, were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade, to write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry, nor could the scroll contain the whole, through stretched from sky to sky. It has no limits friends. The one who said "Jerusalem, Jersalem...how often would I...but ye would not" and said to the Children of Israel "I set before you this day life and death......choose life", meant what He said and He also says to the false teachers, like the  "Calvinists", "stop lying about me, stop telling falsehoods about me"...."but ye would not".

    One difference, I would point out, is that Rome never had any virtue and never had the one true God as a first love.  They were morally decadent from the get go. They never had "In God We Trust" written on their coins. But Rome persecuted God's people, and Rome hadn't ought have done that. We now have a president, who has turned his back on Israel, is subverting her, and is helping her enemies. That's going to be the last straw I'm afraid.

    "Forced to Watch"
    The subject of being "forced to watch" was brought up in another thread and it reminded me of the time I heard our former pastor teaching on that. He said something to that effect, also, that God would bring us out to some overlook and make us watch the carcasses of those down in Hell. But I don't know of such a scripture unless someone can point me to it. I do know of the following passage but it says nothing about God "forcing" us to do anything". it simply says "they shall go forth" .......
    Isaiah 66
    22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.
    23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
    24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

    Do you know any Armenians?
    No, not Arminians....
    Friday afternoon, I  sold some sheep to four guys from Armenia.  Unlike all the Arabs/Muslims I've dealt with these folks didn't try to negotiate the price other than to offer me MORE if I sold them what they wanted. They were a pleasure to deal with, paid me extra, and said they would be back for more.

    and your meaning is?

    Being "white" is not a religion or ideology.

    Did I say someone who merely "thinks"?
    Here are some verses......
    2 Corinthians 11: 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
    Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed
    To the "monergists", "reformed", "Calvinists, or whatever you want to be called: The real Jesus loved the world, loved His enemies, died for the world, tasted death for every man, and by his own righteousness offered the free gift of salvation to all men. If the Jesus you teach to others, didn't do that, then you have the wrong one.  I would seriously recommend checking up on your Jesus.
