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.]

Uh huh, now what?

":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 think China has made a big mistake over Hong Kong, and it may adversely affect them for a long time to come.

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.

Support for the Bible will not make any difference to faith in the Bible. God walked among men once, and still they did not see him.

The god called Dharmes does not exist. What foolish people to worship a god who does not exist. And then they have the audacity to censure those who are worshipping the true God - Jehovah.

Let me see if I am understanding this correctly
1. Tracts from Trinitarian Bible Society are not man's inventions?
2. Telling a story and quoting Scripture to show people they are lost and need to be saved is psychological manipulation?
3. Using a format that is read is not a good idea when handing out the gospel message?
4. Calvinists don't use Chick tracts according to your vast research that backs your assertion?
Just wondering
Bro US, I am eagerly awaiting the replies to your post, but it appears you might be 'just wondering' for quite some time.

Acts 8:29-35 KJV
(29)  Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
(30)  And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
(31)  And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
(32)  The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:
(33)  In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.
(34)  And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
(35)  Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

IMHO I would have thought it a very rare conversion where only scripture is involved. And that conversions which involve both scripture and explanation are common, and the usual way that God saves sinners.

Gospel preachers explain scripture and gospel tracts explain scripture. Philip shows this above, when he preached Jesus from the OT.

Thanks brother for your thoughts. The road to salvation is different for everyone, but the common theme is struggle and spiritual hardships. Thanks for showing the difference between a straight line and a difficult line. We live in a world that is antithetical to Christianity, so that really makes a lot of sense. I remember the Jews wanted to make Christ a king, but that was not His purpose
John 6:15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone

‘I’m open to the idea that God is there. I’d prefer if he was.’
God is there, and sadly for him this is bad news, unless he repents. For the Christian it’s great news that our God is alive and powerful, but for the unrepentant...
Our God is so alive and powerful, that his grace can reach into the hearts of the impenitent and transform them so that they are repentant and believing. It is nothing less than a miracle of God's grace and mercy.

Thusly, all believers who find in themselves a repentant heart, can be more fully assured of their calling and election.
