So the feeble little sinner...
Adriel, you have been sold a pup.

Acts 17:6 KJV
(6)  And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

Ah, those were the days, when men of faith were men of faith, strong, powerful, indwelt by the Holy Ghost, doing wonders in the name of Jesus, turning the world upside down, seeing multitudes of conversions, with persecutions besides.

Adriel, have you backslidden so far as to not see these things in the Bible?

If you want to argue doctrine, find an Arminian to argue with. It is not doctrine I am concerned with but real facts in the world today, of which you seem totally oblivious.

If conversion to you means the creation of "feeble little sinners", I rather think you have lost the plot.

Adriel, why are you trying to convince a Calvinist of Calvinism? This is the great problem in Reformed circles these days, they won't get out and about with their message.

So much for their message.

Yes indeed, that sentence was kind of muddy, wasn't it, John? I'll try again. You said according to Mr Calvin, the elements change at the point of eating and drinking. I was wondering as to what do the elements change into? What do they become? And I might as well ask, aside from remembrance, is there then something else of substance added to the life of a believer? If so, wouldn't that be Jesus plus...?
Thanks Mike. I am finding it difficult to quote Calvin without the normal theological lingo which attends such. The best I can do is to refer you to this very short article which seeks to describe the main churches position on the communion.

http://christianityinview.com/eucharist.html

The Reformed/Presbyterian view is now the one that I espouse, having as one of its main tenets the real and living presence of Jesus Christ, as opposed to the Baptists and others who regard the communion as simply a remembrance with no presence of Jesus.

Thusly the Baptist version is more like a funeral, a reminder of death. The Reformed reminds of salvation through death, but adds the living Christ into the equation, which makes it a joyful celebratory meal.

Bro Mike, I have to go shopping but I'll soon be back. Could you do something for me? Could you rephrase the question, please? Thanks.

No John.
I want GOD to do the conversion of His Elect.
Not me.
I’m just a feeble little sinner.
Adriel, someone has been telling you porkies.

If you are a Christian you are in the royal family; you are a priest; sin no longer has dominion over you; Jesus has made you free; you live righteously.

As for being too feeble to witness, please observe:

Acts 1:8 KJV
(8)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Luke 24:49 KJV
(49)  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Now please note, Adriel. You are leaving it up to God to convert sinners. God is using Arminians to bring in his elect. The same Arminians are teaching the new converts. Therefore you are to blame that Arminianism is on the rise and Calvinism is biting the dust.

Have you never wondered why God told his people to wait for the promise before venturing out witnessing?

It's never too late to turn about.

Well said Pilgrim. No one is outside of salvation if God's chooses them to be saved. His grace and calling are irresistible
In a worldly sense it must be understood that if a Muslim converts to Christ, they will at a minimum be ostracized by their family and friends and at a maximum, they will be murdered by their family and friends.
Amen brother, and yes it is a great sadness when religious people will not permit others to freely express their faith in Jesus Christ.

Colorful language was used more in those days, John. They didn't have special effects, just words to grab hold of the listener. We have to ask, what was Jesus doing at the very time he said this is my body? Was he holding his body in his hand, or bread? His blood, or wine? So when he said this do in remembrance of me, the taking of the bread and wine was to be a remembrance of what he was about to do for them, i.e. the death of his body, and the shedding of his blood. They were to incorporate him into themselves completely, and them into him, that they be one in him.
No doubt about it Mike. However there is more to this than the Baptists claim. At least I think so.

One thing is for sure, and that is, whatever he meant, we must eat his flesh and drink his blood or we have no life in us.

So how do you go about doing that bro? And does the Eucharist play any part in that process?

BTW to save time, I am not putting forth the Catholic expression of transubstantiation, but the John Calvin expression of Receptionism, where the elements change only at the point of eating and drinking, and then only through the faith of the receiver.

John;
I'm sure you've seen the above quote of CHS before too.
Adriel, you are no longer living in the real world but a religious world of yester-year.

There was a time when most people had religion of a sort, usually some form of Christianity. But it is no longer the same. Here in the UK and in Europe we are living in a secular society, and the people in general would not understand the points you are coming out with. Even myself, converted in 1979 out of the world, would not understand the theology you come out with, because I was not acquainted with it prior to conversion.

Maybe your life has been too church-based for too long, and you are not aware of how sinners are these days?

The point is, are you getting sinners converted? Are you making disciples? Do you have a world vision for the gospel? It is easy-peasy to grumble at others for the way they are doing things, but what are the neo-Calvinists doing? Is God using them to bring his elect into the kingdom?

The funniest thing is that God is using Chick Tracts to SAVE HIS ELECT!

Oh, deep joy!

Adriel, no doubt theologians will argue the case for the doctrines of grace, and a mighty fine job they will make of it too.

However, an out-and-out sinner, of the sort we wish to see converted and in his right mind, will have no such background to work with. Rather they will be dependent on the working of the Holy Spirit, through the preaching of whatever stripe, in order to comprehend what they must do to be saved.

It will matter nothing if the Calvinist preacher says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved," or if the Arminian preacher says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved," the important thing is that the sinner is exhorted to "come to Christ" for forgiveness and salvation, and the Holy Spirit bears witness with his spirit that he ought to do that, thus showing that he is elect of God, even though at that time he has no knowledge concerning such a thing.

It really will not do to pat the Calvinist preacher on the head and say, "Nice job," unless he is witnessing to sinners and seeing conversions. Or do you think holding the truth is more important than seeing souls saved?

God sent his Son into the world to save sinners, not to build colleges of excellence in doctrine.

One big mistake that many Calvinists make, is in imagining that God will refuse to save souls through anything that smacks of arminian theology. This is a grievous error, as will be shown on the day of judgment, when those converted through arminian tracts (Revelation 3:20 for example) or arminian preachers will outnumber those converted through a calvinistic tract or preacher.

I would estimate that Chick Tracts will account for the highest number of converts in heaven; and if any of the Reformed persuasion wish to see the stats change, they will need to start producing tracts that are read straight away instead of being stuffed in a pocket or handbag. They will also need to cease making tracts into theological treatises, simply because the majority of people alive today will need to start at the very beginning (milk only), and vast multitudes will need to be taught to read and write.

[Then, as now, many pastors imitated Christ and urged their followers to put aside torches and weapons. Many poachers imitated the Joker in Batman comics and movies, using the opportunity to steal and burn.]

":this do in remembrance of me."
It sounds simple enough, Mike, until you realise that in order to hold this position you must needs do that which you are always complaining about Calvinists doing, namely, ignoring the simple and plain interpretation of the texts, in favour of adding extra words into the passage in order to make it mean what you want it to mean. For example:

Matthew 26:26 KJV
(26)  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

which is changed to, Take, eat; this represents my body.

or...

John 6:52-53 KJV
(52)  The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
(53)  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

which is changed to anything which avoids actually eating his flesh or drinking his blood.

You have to ask why Jesus did not put the Jews straight about their question, if he did not mean what he said.

It is only just today that I discovered John Calvin taught Receptionism to Presbyterian and Reformed rather than the Memorialism found among the Baptists etc.

"The rule which the pious ought always to observe is, whenever they see the symbols instituted by the Lord, to think and feel surely persuaded that the truth of the thing signified is also present. For why does the Lord put the symbol of his body into your hands, but just to assure you that you truly partake of him? If this is true let us feel as much assured that the visible sign is given us in seal of an invisible gift as that his body itself is given to us." John Calvin

John 6:51-59 KJV
(51)  I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
(52)  The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
(53)  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
(54)  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
(55)  For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
(56)  He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
(57)  As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
(58)  This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
(59)  These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Matthew 26:26 KJV
(26)  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

I have never had any respect for Islam, I have none now, and never will have in the future. Of course, Muslims can be saved, just as any other sinner. And the Lord's arm is not shortened that he cannot save. History proves that God saves all sorts of men from all sorts of countries from all sorts of backgrounds, at the time of his choosing. It all comes down to predestination and election, without which none would be saved.

So praise God for his electing purposes and his grace shown towards sinners lost and undone. Thank you Lord for Jesus Christ the great Redeemer, who loved me and gave himself for me.

I've heard tell that Maryland was so called on account of the prominence of Roman Catholicism there. But I don't know if there any truth in that.
