Michael, Arminians have denied that God is sovereign because the word is not found in the bible. When God does the choosing of a people, He does so according to His good pleasure, not whether or not you will let Him.

And this coming from someone who believes that God needs man's permission to do as He pleases. This coming from someone who believes in extra biblical revelation, the seven churches for example. This coming from someone who believes that man has within his own power and abilities to save his own soul without divine intervention. This coming from someone who believes that the gospels aren't written for the chuurch. This coming from someone who believes that the natural sinful man can receive and understand the things of the Spirit regardless what Scripture says.

You deny Scripture JD, what more can I say. Your camp teaches that human freewill can triumph over God's divine sovereignty. You have denied the total depravity of man from the get go. You have denied the doctrine of original sin.

Yes. And they are. It's called unity of the Spirit.
So then I take it you claim infallibility behind the pulpit.

If your subjects are not allowed to read and interpret scripture for themselves or commanded to believe 100% the way you do, you are either the Pope or a cult.

So then JD, what is your basis for claiming that the 7 churches are to be read as seven time periods? I have to concur with Murray.

If the seven letters were written to seven literal churches, they must be read in light of their current circumstances, not some convaluted scheme like the dispensationalist have concocted.

WOMI,

Are your subjects commanded to believe 100% like you do? I have personally chosen to keep my theological beliefs out of the church. I am not a teaching elder or a ruling elder in the church, nor am I a deacon.

Are your subjects not allowed to search and read the scriptures for themselves and guided by the Holy Spirit to see what the bible says for itself, or, are they only allowed to believe what you tell them to believe.

So then you would agree that the letters to the seven churches in chapters 2 & 3 are literal letters written to seven literal churches at that time period?

Thus the general call must be a meaningless gesture. Though it is difficult to believe God does anything meaningless.
Not meaningless at all. All men who hear the gospel are now without excuse. It is when you come to the realization that you have absolutely nothing within yourself to offer God is when you can now come to put your complete trust in His free gift of salvation.

Are these not found in Revelation 1:19"

And would you agree that it gives the general outline for the book of Revelation?

RK,

I know that and you know that, getting them to believe it is a different story.

Derek,
The general call goes out to all to repent and believe, however, only those who are effectualy drawn by the Father will repent and believe the gospel.

RK,

However don't be surprised if WOMI retorts that it is not deaing with salvation because the words "calleth you unto salvation" is not specifically mentioned in the text.

Perhaps this thread is a better place to discuss whether the 7 churches are literal or figurative.

Rev 1:19 is the key verse of the book of Revelation. It gives us the outline of the book

"Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;"

1. "The things which thou hast seen" This is the vision in chapter 1 and is in the past tense JD, not future. The previous verses are explained in 1:20.

2. "The things which are"
This is in the present tense and covers chapters 2 and 3.

3. "The things which shall be hereafter"
This is the future and covers chapters 4 to the end of the book.

This was the standard interpretation I was taught in the IFB. JD's version comes from the pages of Clarence Larkin who was a hyper-dispensationalist not from the bible. (See "The Book of Revelation" by Clarence Larkin)

What I also find interesting is that this is the same view held by the Historicist Protestant interpretation of Bible prophecy. I am also surprised that JD agrees with thr postmillennials and including Luther, Calvin, the Reformers, Wycliffe, and Henry Alford.

Most fundamental baptist hold to the futurist intepretation of Revelation with the exception of the first three chapters.

JD wrote:
... the humanistic doctrines of the reformed hard today.
And this is coming from the camp that believes that man has the power within himself to save himself without divine intervention. Itis called the human freewill.

At least Calvinism teaches that salvation is of the Lord from beginning to end.

Humanistic frewillism teaches in a man centered salvation where man takes the credit for his own salvation, giving only partial glory to God keeping some for themselves. Calvinism teaches in a God centered salvation and all glory given to God.

And he calls reformed doctrines humanistic.

Yamil, then it is up to you to show me from scripture where Abraham raised his hand during a church service, walked an isle, said a sinner's prayer to invite Jesus into his heart.

Better get some malpractice insurance, you may need it.

Yamil, you keep forgetting John 6:44, "No man CAN come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day."

No talk of volition. It doesn't say, "No man WILL come to me" now does it?

Even the Scottish Psalter was rewritten and modified by human composers to incorporate meters. Is it still considered inspired hymns after human hands have modified it?

I love the metric psalms but it dawned on me that it isn't the exact words of God translated in the Authorized Version or even Geneva for that matter.

Don't miss this also...I did say a prayer when I was about 8, but it wasn't because the Holy Spirit was convicting and I saw myself as disgusting before God. It was only because I was afraid to die.
Thank you Derek. You have pointed out the problem with many baptist today. They refuse to see themselves as being disgusting before God. JD and Yamil reject that man is totally depraved before God but still maintains some inherent goodness in them to come to God without the Holy Spirit drawing them. My wife's testimony is very similar to yours in that she prayed a sinners prayer 25 years ago, but the Holy Spirit was not dealing with her. She was afraid to die. She didn't see herself as disgusting before God and there were no fruits of repentance that followed. There was no signs of a regenerated spirit eventhough she continued in church and read her bible and prayed. Only when God humbled her and showed herselef through His eyes was she able to come to repentance and faith. It was not the pride of Calvinism that kept you back because my wife is IFB and had the same problem.

That is why they maintain that justification is in something they did. It is "by faith", it is not "through the faith" that we are justified.
