Only Paul

I never get tired of this one.  This is a slightly updated version of Kevin’s classic “Sola Paul.”  Both funny and devastating to one of the main Calvinist arguments for limited atonement.

  2. This is first time I read it, this is beyond funny and right on the mark at the same time. Thank you for this post and thank you Kevin

  3. That gets me every time!

  4. I think only the elect will be gathered by the angels.Even believing Gentiles are suppose to make their calling and election sure.Who ever the elect are,they will be in all corners of the earth.They will be called,chosen and justified by Gods Grace.Their is a sure and definate number known only to GOD.We as believers most hope we are in that number,because all of us are going to be found sinners in that day.Hopefully we will not be working iniquity and i don’t think The ones God has quickened will be.So if God has quickened any of you ,then you are saved.Saved by what he has done for you,not that you tell everybody and his brother you have accepted him.Thats belony.If he has birthed you in his spirit then you are saved.Then you are his elect!

  5. Lewis,

    You wrote,

    Yes, but nobody is denying this. Arminians fully agree that angels will gather the elect only. The question has to do with how the elect become the elect, not whether or not the angels will only gather the elect or not. And yes, we are to make our calling and election sure. That makes sense in Arminianism where election is conditional, but not so much in Calvinism where election is unconditional.

    They will be called,chosen and justified by Gods Grace.

    Arminians agree with this as well.

    Their is a sure and definate number known only to GOD.

    Arminians agree with this as well since God foreknows all things, including who will put faith in Christ and thereby become the elect of God.

    We as believers most hope we are in that number,because all of us are going to be found sinners in that day.

    Please show me in the Bible where it says we need to “hope we are in that number”? 1 John 5:13 tells us that as believers we can “know” that we presently possess eternal life, and Peter, as you pointed out, said we can be sure of our elect status. This doesn’t seem to comport very well with the idea of just “hoping” we are “of that number.”

    The ones God has quickened will be.

    Yes, but we are quickened (given spiritual life) by faith.

    So if God has quickened any of you ,then you are saved.Saved by what he has done for you,

    True, but the possession of that salvation is conditioned on continuance of faith (which is the condition for being quickened in the first place).

    not that you tell everybody and his brother you have accepted him.Thats belony.

    Why is it baloney to tell someone you accepted/received Christ?

    If he has birthed you in his spirit then you are saved.Then you are his elect!

    No argument here so long as we recognize that the new birth and election are conditioned on faith.

    God Bless,
    Ben
