"Those who've been drawn by God and born again by the Spirit WILL flee to Christ, but not because they exercised free will."

I agree. John 3.

I wince at those terms in a Gospel call and definitely take issue with those that hinge salvation on the sinners action.

Good article that brings up good questions.

Then he brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." - Acts 16:30-31

While they did not say, 'Choose' or 'Make a decision' here, the concept is in there. The sinner must take action, otherwise, why call people to repent and believe? When we believe, that is what we see from our perspective, but Scripturally, the Spirit gives
life. Sovereign grace and human will intersection has tension in the Word. If you don't see it, then our biases are in control. Now, We don't say to people, 'Just wait for God to give you life and make you believe'. Is that Gospel invitation in Acts?

Soli Deo Gloria, regardless. I'm no fool to give credit to my salvation other than to God alone. Sola Gratia!

So easy we get sidetracked by Satan and our flesh to what is the root cause of sin and evil and the only cure.

2 Cor 5:17, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, John 3:16, Ephesians 2, Colossians 1, Titus 3, etc...

Preach about the loving and living God-Man.

Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them." - Luke 15:1-2

To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings. - 1 Corinthians 9:21-23

Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be there. - Acts 17:16-17

"No Other Name"

One name
Holds weight above them all
His fame
Outlasts the earth He formed
His praise
Resounds beyond the stars
And echoes in our hearts
The greatest One of all

His face
Shines brighter than the sun
His grace
As boundless as His love
He reigns
With healing in His wings
The King above all kings
The greatest One of all

Lift up our eyes, see the King has come
Light of the world reaching out for us
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God

Seated on high, the undefeated One
Mountains bow down as we lift Him up
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God

Find hope
When all the world seems lost
Behold
The triumph of the cross
His power
Has trampled death and grave
Our life found in His name
The greatest name of all

Lift up our eyes, see the King has come
Light of the world reaching out for us
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God

Seated on high, the undefeated One
Mountains bow down as we lift Him up
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God
Jesus

The earth will shake
And tremble before Him
Chains will break
As heaven and earth sing
Holy is the name
Holy is the name of
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
[x2]

Lift

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. - 2 Peter 2:1-3

False Dilemma:

The suggestion that to be in a denomination is that you are more intellectual and doctrinal than someone not in a denomination.

You can have a strong faith (with an even balance of the emotions because after all God works on the heart) regardless of being in a particular denomination.

My personal opinion is that I'd rather not be in a denomination because I'd rather just be a 'Christian'. I want to lead people to Christ and not to a denomination. Still, my doctrinal beliefs to tend to one particular belief set ~ New Covenant - but I will not lead with that. I'd instead focus on Biblical truths summarized by the 5 solas.

For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. - 1 Corinthians 1:26-29

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. - Romans 12:16-18

“ Excellent Article ”
Helpful explanation of 1 Tim 1:8. David's resources help solidify the biblical view of the believer's non-relationship to the law (of Moses). It is so clear and freeing. Galatians 3 is the clincher.

Glad CMP is doing this. America has no moral high ground. Hypocrisy. Abortion, pornography, racism, sexism, legal prostition, etc. And we know it will get worse. Don't put your hope in America, hope in Jesus.

And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, "Save yourselves from this crooked generation." - Acts 2:40

And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. - 1 John 2:17

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, - Ephesians 5:11-13

And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, saying, "We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man's blood upon us." But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men. - Acts 5:27-29

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. - 1 Peter 2:9-12

“We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish but as an opportunity for carnage,” May said Tuesday.

The unbeliever struggles to understand. The believer understands because apart from God's grace he would be just like them.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience- - Ephesians 2:1-2

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. - Titus 3:3

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, - Colossians 1:21

“ Helpful Studies! ”
I appreciate David's work. He gets you to think logically and look closer into Scripture and context instead of just accepting what folks say. His work is paradigm-shifting. I appreciated this one as the water baptism as a symbol view is prevalent.

Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not listen to the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave woman and one by a free woman. But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, while the son of the free woman was born through promise. Now this may be interpreted allegorically: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar. Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia; she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother. For it is written,

“Rejoice, O barren one who does not bear;
break forth and cry aloud, you who are not in labor!
For the children of the desolate one will be more
than those of the one who has a husband.”

Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. But just as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so also it is now. But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman shall not inherit with the son of the free woman.” So, brothers, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman. See Galatians.

Yes, certainly another Gospel.

"This I Believe (The Creed)"

Our Father everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty

Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Savior

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

Our Judge and our Defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You

Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice. - Philippians 1:15-18

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me." - Romans 15:1-3

But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.
If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. - 1 Corinthians 12:18-25

I'm not an expert on or immune to logical fallacies, but I sense one or more in some of the arguments posted here

see https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

or

https://answersingenesis.org/logic/logical-fallacies-series/

Wasn't it the Lord who said, "I desire mercy, not sacrifice"?

Many of the harsh comments on SA remind me of the attitude of the Pharisees. Little or no love. Little or no grace. No mercy....

James was right (3:3-11)...

With it (the tongue/our words) we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. James 3:9

"CCM garbage"
I suppose you are referring to Christian Contemporary Music and you have listened to every single song's lyrics to make such a blanket statement? Some songs are definitely worthy of criticism due to worldliness or bad theology. However, valid songs can be from the heart, detailing emotions that the Lord evokes in us toward Him for the great love that He has toward us. Those words are spirit-filled and not bound by any legalistic requirement of a cold, dead religion.

Galatians 4:6
Galatians 5:22-23
Romans 8:26
Romans 14

e.g. lyrics from a CCM song

"I put all my hope in the truth of Your promise
And I steady my heart on the ground of Your goodness
When I'm bowed down with sorrow I will lift up Your name
And the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

Because You are good to me, good to me "
