English Lad
I was able to read your comment before it was removed, it was spot on. Thank you.
Labeling me a 'feminist' is all the enemy can do, he cannot hurt me beyond that. It's strange how that comment is allowed to stand, yet others disappear. The SA 'click' delights in evil speaking and personal unwarranted attacks.
Once upon a time, I exchanged emails with my attacker. It was when I started emailing other professing believers that all communication ceased, why? Because my 'spiritual mentor' [his words, not mine] was offended I dared go elsewhere to discuss theology or share personal info. Strange and creepy.
God has a way of protecting the sheep from spiritually harmful people. Error is embraced and tolerated daily here. The 'pseudo jesus' is worshiped and promoted through Arminian false preachers, ecumenical false preachers, RCC mystics, and creeds of men, along with eisegetical practices.
Misogyny disguised as Christianity is dangerous for the maidservants of Christ.
If Aquila's wife Priscilla were alive today, she would be labeled and maligned here, why? Because she is a woman who DARES to correct a man.

As James Tippins rightly says, [my paraphrase] 'warn them then leave them in their darkness.'

It's too bad grown men resort to name calling. May God reveal what lies in ALL our hearts as some bite and devour, falsely accuse and malign those for whom Christ died.

No woman should be ignored by her husband unless she 'repents' to him. No wife should have profanity shouted at them. A low view of women leads to harsh verbal abuse. The person who does this knows who they are.
That is not loving your wife like Christ loved the church. My point? -- We ALL need to self examine.
IF some here keep insisting on a salvation that is 'sufficient' for all, then why not address Rev. 5:9 and leave accusations where they belong --- on a grade school playground?
No one will because it shows the true meaning of 'redemption' and who Christ actually purchased 'out of' the marketplace.

Adriel, I understand if you do not answer, at this point I prefer you don't. My intentions were never to offend you or anyone else here.

I won't worship the 'arminian/calminian/ecumenical/duty faith jesus.
The Spirit will guide the elect in all truth.

Adriel,
Your own words, "Because it came to us through the Son of God atonement is perfect.
Sufficient to save every sinner ever born." where does the bible say this Adriel? I do agree, only the elect are saved.
BTW, I don't restrict His redemptive work, He does Rev. 5:9-And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation'- redeemed- to buy in the marketplace, purchase - from the Greek 'agorazó' - defined as 'to buy in the marketplace, purchase'. What He purchased became His own personal possession. In the Greek, 'agorazo' in the indicative mood, which means -'the action or the event as something real or certain, in other words as an objective fact.' It isn't just a 'possibility', it is a 'done deal'.
What was the method of payment? His own blood- 1 John 1:7 states that same blood cleanses us from 'all' sin. Also, take note of the phrase 'out of', it means Christ selected a certain one, not every one. He did not purchase the entire marketplace! Out of every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. Can you address this Adriel?
"I lay down my life for my sheep" seems clear.

Are these words chopped up Mike and US?

"no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him" YLT John 6:44 - "and ye do not will to come unto me, that ye may have life" John 5:40 'do not will to come' is in the present indicative active mood, the present tense means it is a CONTINUOUS action, they NEVER WILL come. The active voice points to the subject, 'you' as the performer of this action.
"Apart from me you can do nothing"
'Worthy art thou to take the scroll, and to open the seals of it, because thou wast slain, and didst redeem US to God in thy blood, "OUT OF" every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.' Does anyone read that text? "OUT OF" means what? ALL?

Tell me, did Calvin write those words or God? Is Christ a liar, does the bible contradict?
"I LAY DOWN MY LIFE FOR MY SHEEP" - is that blasphemous? Did Christ really mean that? Did God really say? .....

I already stated my point ... 'progressive sanctification'. You misconstrued my original thoughts, nitpicked them, then ran with it.

Works based religionists miss the truth of grace, miss the fact of resting in Christ, depending on Him for all things, etc.

Done with you US

"I am the vine, ye the branches; he who is remaining in me, and I in him, this one doth bear much fruit, because apart from me ye are not able to do anything" - Christ isn't vague here is He?

All works based religion cannot grasp this, they cannot rest on Him because they are forever 'working' to do this, that, the other. If the foundations aren't right, nothing else will be thereafter....

To those for whom this applies- "self-righteousness is the greatest abomination there is" - Scott Price, from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wkLv75yUy8

Here is what I DID actually say, " No plan or place for sanctification - whose sanctification? your own or Christs? For the record, no one 'grows' in holiness, we will never be holier tomorrow than today because it isn't our holiness that God accepts, we have none of our own-" You simply added to my own words and put your 'spin' on them.

Does any sinner possess holiness apart from Christ?
Are you holier today than yesterday US? Yes or no? It would seem you believe in 'progressive sanctification'? Do you think you will reach the point of sinless perfection?

No Adriel, you believe Christ made it possible for ALL to be saved, you are using double speak when you say it's only the elect that are saved, yet you try and say He died for all. You are riding both sides of that fence.
1 John 1:7 states that same blood cleanses 'US' from 'all' sin. Does the blood of Christ actually cleanse or doesn't it? Some or all? Which is it?
Does 'all sin' include unbelief? For IF he died for all, hell would be vacant.

So what exactly is your argument US? What are you arguing against or for?

No one stated we should not pursue walking worthy, no one can do so without continual mercy from God. From Heb.12:14, holiness - consecration, sanctification. The verb 'pursue' is in the imperative mood, meaning 'a command'. Following separation from the world is a lifelong ordeal for the born again believer, no one questions that. Do you obey perfectly, every waking moment?
Pursue peace and holiness- does the sinner manufacture either of these from within their own ability? Are you holier today than yesterday?
Most of us wrestle our own flesh daily {Romans 7}
Young's literal translation helps, "peace pursue with all, and the separation, apart from which no one shall see the Lord" - it is a command to walk contrary to the world.
The renewing of the mind is a continual process, we are daily growing in Christ -the knowledge of Him. He enables us to walk as we should, albeit imperfect. He gives more grace.

US -- it would seem you misinterpreted my original comment and ran with that. Here's what I said, " No plan or place for sanctification - whose sanctification? your own or Christs? For the record, no one 'grows' in holiness, we will never be holier tomorrow than today because it isn't our holiness that God accepts, we have none of our own-" Being sanctified is not humanly possible. Growing less sinful is not possible either. I was referring to the lie of 'progressive sanctification'. I never implied we aren't to strive against sin. Are you less sinful today than yesterday? EVERY day is a battle against 'self', no one wins that battle this side of heaven. Be holy for I am holy - can you 'be holy' on your own accord? Your own wisdom? Your own might?

You misinterpreted what I said and took off down a rabbit trail I never intended to go down.
I can't explain it any better than that, so I won't bother trying.

Is the believer saved by their own works? No.
'work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; which is to be understood not in such a sense as though men could obtain and procure for themselves spiritual and eternal salvation by their own works and doings; for such a sense is contrary to the Scriptures.The words may be rendered, "work about your salvation"; employ yourselves in things which accompany salvation, and to be performed by all those that expect it, though not to be expected for the performance of them; such as hearing of the word, submission to Gospel ordinances, and a discharge of every branch of moral, spiritual, and evangelical obedience for which the apostle before commends them, and now exhorts them to continue in; to go on in a course of cheerful obedience to the close of their days, believing in Christ, obeying his Gospel, attending constantly to his word and ordinances, and discharging every duty in faith and fear, until at last they should receive the end of their faith, the salvation of their souls: agreeably the Syriac version renders the words, , "do the work", or "business of your lives". J.Gill
Be ye holy, can you stop sinning on your own? Can you control your tongue? Live in a way that shows you are Christ's, as HE gives you the ability.

US - context is helpful. So is this from J.Gill-perfecting holiness in the fear of God; by "holiness" is not meant the work of sanctification upon the heart, for that is wholly the work of the Spirit of God, and not of man; he begins it, carries it on, and perfects it of himself; but holiness of life and conversation is here designed, which in conversion the people of God are called unto, and which highly becomes them: and this they are to be "perfecting"; not that a believer is able to live a life of holiness, without sin being in him, or committed by him; this is in, possible and impracticable in the present life; but the sense of the word is, that he is to be carrying on a course of righteousness and holiness to the end; to the end of his life, he is to persevere as in faith, so in holiness; as he is to go on believing in Christ, so he is to go on to live soberly, righteously, and godly, to the end of his days; which requires divine power to preserve him from sin, and keep him from falling; and the grace of God, the strength of Christ, and the assistance of the Spirit, to enable him to perform acts of holiness".
- it always points to reliance on Christ.

"Sufficient to save every sinner ever born." Got any scriptural support for that Adriel? Why aren't ALL saved?

There is a fascinating story in Scotland about something that happened during a time of great persecution which took place in the reign of the Catholic, Queen Mary.
It seems that an inquisitor, a persecutor, one day came armed with the Queen's soldiers to a certain Christian woman who had hidden in her house. She was a truly godly woman and one of Christ's true servants.
The persecutor confronting her that morning said, "Where is that heretic?" To which this Christian lady replied, "If you open that trunk and you will see the heretic" The persecutor opened the trunk, and on the top of the linen he saw a mirror. Turning around he said, "There is no heretic here." "Ah!" Said she, "Look into the mirror and you will see the heretic."
Just like this poor Christian lady, there are so many times when I am confronted by people who oppose the Gospel and all the doctrines of grace, and they do this by adding some work, some law, or some ritual, to the completed work of Jesus. From these people, I am told that "I am a heretic." Why? Because my faith is completely wrapped up in Christ and only in his already finished work.
Yes, and I too, just like that lady, want to respond, "look into the mirror and you will see the heretic!"

"The plan for life is election, then, and nothing more? - that wasn't stated by any here was it? - No plan or place for sanctification - whose sanctification? your own or Christs? For the record, no one 'grows' in holiness, we will never be holier tomorrow than today because it isn't our holiness that God accepts, we have none of our own- increase in understanding and growth in the believer? - again, that wasn't stated either.- Or is that left up to man to work out of his own accord?" - who said such a thing? "Apart from me you can do nothing"

"Man is not forced to believe anything." - no one stated this either. Actually, the word of God presented in my earlier comment shows no one will ever believe on their own accord...period.
Salvation, sanctification,justification, righteousness, regeneration...all are of Christ. No work can save, no one can appease a holy God who demands perfection. No one can approach this same sovereign God through any work- no free will,no decisionism, no infant baptism, no keeping of the law. That is all dung- it is only the finished, completed work of Christ that God sees as 'acceptable' and satisfactory. If the Gospel you adhere to is not all about the work and person of Christ alone, nothing added, your gospel is accursed.

So do you consider this to be a 'religious stripe'? - "no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him" YLT John 6:44 - "and ye do not will to come unto me, that ye may have life" John 5:40 'do not will to come' is in the present indicative active mood, the present tense means it is a CONTINUOUS action, they NEVER WILL come. The active voice points to the subject, 'you' as the performer of this action.

Why do some believe and some do not? What is the source of both? You did notice in John 5:40 that NONE will ever come right? Did you also notice in John 6:44 no one ever comes unless the Father first draws?
So, why do some remain in unbelief?

A person accusing a believer of being a 'perfect knowledge advocate' might fret concerning how much error is permissible to qualify a person as a Christian. It's not about how much a person can get wrong but what must be right. God himself teaches the believer the gospel and it is only by the Spirit that the believer is able to receive the things of the Spirit. The Spirit testifies of Christ, and in that testimony the believer is given faith to agree with God that Christ is his assurance. That Christ is his Substitute. The Christ Alone is his Righteousness. That Christ is the end of the law to everyone who believes. That His grace is sufficient. The Christ is his Sanctification. That the gospel is the wisdom and power of God unto salvation, and that leaven disqualifies the gospel as the proclamation of Christ, as complete and an accomplished Savior on behalf of his elect.
Can a person turn to the law not actually believing Christ is our Sanctification, and still be a Christian? It is unbelief. The Holy Spirit himself testifies with our spirit. Those who do not have the Holy Spirit of God are none of His, so if a person is devoid of the testimony of Christ as their Assurance, and Surety, then Christ Himself is NOT their peace. Christ Himself is not their sanctification."unknown

English Lad,
Here's the hypocrisy of his 'buddy' & fellow pilgrim --- From the 'unearthed in Rome's new subway' thread, 1/1/18 1:12 pm thread response, "I like Observer go a long way back with JohnUK. For years we exchanged thoughts like true brothers in Christ. I used to defend him when he was falsely attacked and he did likewise. He and I addressed each other as fellow pilgrims and I truly believed we were on the same page.
Now of course, that relationship is for all practical aspects null and void. I cannot fellowship with anyone who promotes the Grahams and especially someone who gives credence to a female mystic. Everyone draws lines in the sand and he has crossed my lines."
There is much hypocrisy and double mindedness here. Siding with heresy and ecumenism will soon swallow you up. Christ did not come to bring peace, but division, as this forum attests to.
My heart does break for all who are blinded by their pride, their pseudo jesus. It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Christ was talking to the religious when He said 'Depart from me, I never knew you'.

May God truly have mercy on ALL who are deceived and deluded by the doctrines and creeds of men, and their hatred of truth.

"Adriel, your new quotation from Hodge is excellent, and shows clearly what the Lord Jesus has done, and how he has done it" so, Hodge's words are infallible? wow, just wow....creeds and commentary take precedence over God's holy word. No wonder so many cleave to so much error, it's easier to manipulate truth to 'fit' conditional duty faith than to let context and truth speak for itself. Just trot out creeds and fallible men's commentary, that equals truth right?

"The Bible is the grand repository ... It is the complete system of divine truth, to which nothing can be added, and from which nothing can be taken, with impunity. Every attempt to disguise or soften any branch of this truth, in order to accommodate it to the prevailing taste around us, either to avoid the displeasure, or to court the favour, of our fellow mortals, must be an affront to the majesty of God, and an act of treachery to men." - John Newton

Why do MOST perish IF Christ made it 'possible' for them to be saved? What prevents the salvation of the whole, entire world? What about those who perished in the flood, after all, Christ made it possible for them to be saved, God loves them dearly, yet He poured out His wrath upon them? Sounds like a 'god' who's ever changing...

It's good to see all resorting to personal opinions, hodge podge, creeds of men, commentary from fallible men, etc. with no scriptural support whatsoever. Concerning the WCF- https://iamhis-lyn.blogspot.com/2019/05/the-westminster-confession-of-faith.html. From that post - There is no mention of the necessity of the New Birth either by inference, innuendo, or plain speech. The return of Christ to this earth (no matter your view of its timing) was given scant review. I found little to no reference to the Substitutionary Atonement of Christ and the corresponding Imputation of His Righteousness to the believer. But the most egregious omission was the treatment of the Resurrection of Christ which received a mention 'in passing' only three times and yet His Resurrection is the lynchpin of the Christian Faith, without it, there is no faith at all---1 Cor. 15:12-17."
Mike- God does have a 'plan' - He ordains some to eternal life and leaves others to perish- Romans 9 teaches this. You have no free will Mike, salvation is not synergistic. Unless God grants you a right understanding of sovereign grace, you will continue to gnash your teeth at it.
IF Christ made salvation 'possible' for 'all' why aren't 'all' saved? What prevents it? Why do most refuse to answer?
