Eddie,Ha! That's a good one (as usual).
Thanks John! How's everything back in the state of Texas?
As I take a sip of Merlot (13.5%), I think of that totally Calvinistic verse (Jn.3:16) and also some of Jesus' own comments in John 6. John 3:16For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life." "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him...""All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me." "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day."And later he says again, "No one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father."(Bible verses from NASB)
Thanks Stranger,You should post those verses on your blog as well.
Where 4 are gathered, there's a fifth.
No one noticed, thus far, that this individual in costume looks EXACTLY like Corky Velveeta! He should...this is Dorky Velveeta, Corky's twin brother. Long story short, Dorky is an Arminian, Corky a Calvinist. They still love each other as brothers, even though they may disagree on doctrine.
Non-alcoholic beer is like a supposed Gospel that refuses to fully embrace the sovereignty of God. Refusing to acknowledge any one of the aspects of the TULIP is certainly damaging but it is God's sovereign grace, His perfect will, that holds it all together and makes it truly effective. Your just drinking flavored water that no more makes the heart merry than the man-centered false gospels make a man enter the eternal joy of our Lord.
