Frank, thank you for your post.
You may be correct in what you say, though that was not the point I was aiming at. My contention with Moniker Man is his insistence that the Holy Spirit must indwell someone to effect any change, as though God's power is localised and he cannot do anything without this localised presence. We've been here before with him and then he was not able to produce any proof of the Holy Spirit residing in the unregenerate to regenerate them. But, we've come to expect unscriptural dogmatism from him.
Thanks, you are such a kind fellow! The argument is toooo confusing for me and I admit that. I do strongly believe in total depravity. So, as an example; I could care less what the pope does or says, it can't be righteous in the sense that I would lend credence to him, what he said or to the office he holds. I do like your thoughts that we can never limit God or what God does. If He said someone was righteous prior to that person coming to Christ, then he was in fact righteous in "some" sense. In other words, I stand by my unorthodox thoughts below.

I have never engaged Moniker man that I am aware of.

I think I will just plug in Deu 29:29.

I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, being perfect Man and God manifest in the flesh, can be correctly portrayed before sinners, in all his offices, in all his mercy, in all his love for the sick while on earth, in his raising the dead while on earth, in his blessing of children while on earth, in his atoning work, in his death and glorious resurrection, in his glorious ascension into heaven from whence he gave the Spirit to his disciples at Pentecost, in his intercessory work for those chosen by his Father, in his building a mansion for each of his people, in his readiness to come again to this planet to judge the quick and the dead, bringing in the day of the wrath of the Lamb, and to give eternal felicity to his own and blood-bought people.......

.......and sinners, who are deaf, dumb, blind, naked, even dead in sins and nature's night, will not blink an eye, nor will they see their own need of a Saviour, but will continue on in their sins, even imagining themselves to be righteous, and condemning the just, will still be able to joke about going to hell.........

.......until the Lord quickens them, gives hearing, speaking, vision, clothing, life even, bringing forth repentance unto life and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Perhaps Cornelius was also one of God's elect, from before the foundation of the world. If that is true, perhaps God can work through His "elect" prior to them being saved. Is that really a stretch? If God says that someone is righteous or does something righteous, then it is righteous. At the same time God says that mankind is totally depraved and can do nothing pleasing to HIm prior to being born again. So, we have none good and we have God declaring someone who was not saved being righteous. In my mind, God simply knew they belonged to Him and worked through them in some fashion prior to “them” knowing they belong to Him. When was Paul saved; on the road to Damascus or in Acts 22:16? Before God restored his eyesight or afterwards?

Yes my thoughts are odd and certainly unorthodox, but that is the way I reconcile all those who were either declared righteous or declared to have done something righteous before they were born again from above. Now if you can give me an example of God calling someone righteous who was not part of His elect, then I will rethink my thoughts.

I personally will say that "all" unsaved folks can do nothing to please God, but if He uses His elect in a righteous way, that is His business. I simply don't know who they are.

UPS, I have been looking over the article, The Problems with the Common Core and what I have read of it, it has quite a few points, this statement is true from it---
Stan Karp wrote:
A massively well-financed campaign of billionaires and politically powerful advocacy organizations that seeks to replace our current system of public education—which, for all its many flaws, is probably the most democratic institution we have and one that has done far more to address inequality, offer hope, and provide opportunity than the country's financial, economic, political, and media institutions—with a market-based, non-unionized, privately managed system.
as far as I have read the only billionaires I have read about was Bill Gates, who is an expert on computer software and separating the suckers from their money, which doesn't make him an expert in public education, but no mention of the billionaires Koches who have history of overweening hatred of public education as evidenced by their invention the J.Birch Society. Why not? A good article as far as I've read as are the Atlantic articles, but none of them are perfect. The USA does need national standards!

Hold on a minute here.i read the article . These figures for swathes of sodomite children of evangelical children are a lie of the devil. And how do we know the facts pf this story are true . The parents v themselves could be closet homosexual out to destroy the true church.or at least they are unsaved and off their father the devil and brought up their child in an atmosphere which didnt keep their child from being exposed to sexual content. We don't know what happened behind closed doors to the child . Yes we should pity a soul that went to hell but maybe the parents helped him along

By most of the comments viewed shows the lack of church disipline , but more importantly, is discipleship. If you are saved, then you go through a process of sanctification. When provided discipleship with the help church leaders one can learn and teach their children the ways that gravitate one toward Christ through the Holy Spirit. I know I'm naive , but if you are sensitive to the spirit , sin can be sought and unhinged before it becomes an ordeal. I do think that what passes for evangelical could pass for nominal Christianity. And when a crisis hits , the "evangelicals" no longer fight sin as in war, they adapt or stop going to church and instead join the non practicing atheistic Christian army.

Thank you helps for pointing out the comment from Charthouse - The 'indwelling' Spirit is indeed not the case with those who are still in their sins. I didn't even catch this error at first- good job

"Q: What is the best way to store audio tape (temperature, containers. etc.) to maintain integrity of the tape itself? I have nine cassette tapes of my grandfather narrating his life story. I've transferred them to CD and mp3, but I don't know if the original exists, so I'm concerned about keeping the tape's integrity for as long as possible." excerpt from, Preserving your treasures Oh, you might want to look at, Care, Handling, and Storage of Audio Visual Materials. You had better start thinking along these lines John Y., since you seem to be an archivist at heart.

Charthouse wrote:
"So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God."
ONLY the indwelling Holy Spirit can cause man to seek God and His Son.
Care to explain Cornelius, a man who was not a Christian, but who was a devout man who feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people and prayed to God alway of whom we read, "Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God"? He did not receive the Spirit until he believed. And again how was it that Saul felt the pricks which he could not kick against in his unconverted state? Or do you think he had the Spirit before his conversion? In short what proof positive can you offer that someone has to have the Spirit of God "indwelling" in order to move spiritually from darkness to light. Let me be clear, no one denies the need of the work of the Spirit. What you insist on viz. the necessity of the "indwelling" is what I question. What Scriptural proof, if any, can you offer?

Michael, your original response, "And if you are willing:
Another part (side) of it is the forgetting of or the denial of, the unwillingness of some many to accept the Truth intimately tied into and interrelated with
Revelation 22:17
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
There is the whosoever will tied into all this, and imho we need to humbly take in all of it, the whole council of God not pick it apart"

Michael, your responses following & including this one are very confusing to me. You respond to John UK with this, "What I am getting at is God give us instruction and PROMISES (big time) to help us in fulfilling the great commission to see His sovereign supernatural work in answers to our prayers and in empowering our witness". I am NOT following your train of thought at all and how it relates to my original response concerning this young man's love of and bondage to sin, and his parents demanding he change.

Not dealing with sin leads to gross hypocrisy.
You have an excellent point that it should be added, there are also no consequences for sin, in the modern world. At least apparent consequences, we use to have the just consequence of execution of someone who has committed murder, but now that has been thwarted by atheist and other misguided people. This is a just punishment even for people who have "only" murdered once. Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government. There should be measured justice here on earth for various types of sins. Spare the rod and spoil the child, even a child of God.

Michael,

The Bible simply does not teach man has the ability/free will to come to Christ apart from divine intervention. My position is not extreme, it is biblical and I have backed it with accurately dividing truth, not pre-suppositional ideologies taught by men.
Man is accountable, yes; no one is denying that. As Charthouse has accurately pointed out in his/her comment, the natural state of man is unable to come on its own. The bible does not contradict Michael, to claim texts like Revelation 22 state 'whosoever' may come means free will is simply not supported by other texts found in holy writ. Cherry picking and basing your theology on that will lead one astray. I cannot state it any clearer than Charthouse has already done.

I did not state Christ is not worthy of being desired! As for those who came for temporal healings, what did Christ say of such? 'Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.' John 2:23-25
You are attempting to steer me down a rabbit trail by stating things I never implied nor would dream of claiming Michael.

But first, I trust that you know I have a, let's call it a partial but significant agreement with what Ladybug posted, as no one absoulutely no one is safed by any "human efforts" nor their will or even desire to be saved the a miserable wretched life of sin
What I am getting at is God give us instruction and PROMISES (big time) to help us in fulfilling the great commission to see His sovereign supernatural work in answers to our prayers and in empowering our witness

Saint Michael,

Yes I think you are right in all of that post. I see nothing there to cause anyone a problem. Well, except Moniker man, who will trot out his usual.

Does anyone here know of a Church that has excommunicated someone because they *think* gay marriage is acceptable?

Because if you take an extreme 'no free will/total inability' position you paint of picture where Jesus is not worthy of being desired and this simply is not the case, and the word of God shows this is not the case
Jesus is not desired by man in his natural estate.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Romans 8:7.

Election of God's people began before the foundation of the world.
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
~ Therefore election cannot begin by the decision of a sinner.
To God goes ALL the glory.

This predestination comes from the purpose of God Himself and His will alone; - not mans choice.
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Eph 1:11

"So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God."
ONLY the indwelling Holy Spirit can cause man to seek God and His Son.
