Yeah, they tried to blame Hispanics. I read where he supposedly yelled out a woman's name before he started shooting. I imagine her name was probably Allah Akbar!

Yeah Jim, this guy has been around for awhile. His ideas have already been shot down, but I guess people are desperately hoping that "Joseph" died and never rose again.

Hopefully they put an ankle bracelet on the boy, in case it happens again. That way he will be easier to find.

Not all of those dunked in water have been baptized and not all baptized have been dunked in water.

for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Acts 1:5 NKJV

There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
I Peter 3:21 NKJV

Isaiah 54:13 (KJV)
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
God teaches some? No. ALL!
Zephaniah 3:9
9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.
Is the Bible in your pure language of English? 1536 The NT was given. In 1560 The Geneva Bible OT and NT was given.
Taking tradition out, Isaiah 54:13, Jeremiah 24:7 and Zephaniah 3:9 are talking about the people of Israel in the future.

“For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you.
Isaiah 54:7 NKJV

For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and not pluck them up. Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord ; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.
Jeremiah 24:6‭-‬7 NKJV

Sounds like Israel to me.

I can't really say that English is any purer of a language than Spanish, French, Russian, or Chinese, etc. I believe Zeph 3:9 is talking about Hebrew.

1) 11 For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth

2) John 10
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
They had to be his sheep before they could hear!

1) So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy.
Romans 9:16 NASB

Two examples are given. One shows man trying to fulfill God's promise according to works (Abraham having a child with Hagar) and the other shows man wanting someone to be a child of promise (Isaac wanted his 1st born, Esau, to receive his inheritance and blessings). God didn't choose either one so that it would not depend on the man who wills (Isaac) or the man who runs (Abraham), but on God who has mercy.

2) That doesn't mean they didn't hear God.

They believed in the Father. These were believers in God who were converting to Christ.

1) How can a dead sinner have faith?
2) Do you understand what it means to be dead to the things of God?
3) Without the new birth first, your 'faith' is worthless. Christ says so Himself in vs 3.
1) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?...
Romans 10:13-15

2) Do you mean "dead in sin"?

3) Jesus doesn't say anything of the sort in verse 3 or anywhere else. Faith without works is dead, but we are saved by faith.

Kev...

Not yet, but I will.

Re-read 1 Cor. 2:14 and ask, who is being addressed, believers or non believers? That should clear up your prior erroneous response. Do you have a verse that states born again believers are spiritually discerned?
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature...
I Corinthians 2:6 NKJV

These verses aren't about becoming a believer, it is about maturity.

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
I Corinthians 2:14 NKJV

This is a true statement of unbelievers and believers.

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
I Corinthians 3:1‭-‬3 NKJV

Paul could not speak to these Christians as he would the spiritually mature because they were carnal, as to babes in Christ. They were not able to receive the things of the Spirit. Yet, they still believed!

You are implying your 'faith' comes prior to God saving you- do you have scriptural support for this as well?
And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Acts 16:30‭-‬31

However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.
I Timothy 1:16

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
John 5:24

In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
Ephesians 1:13

receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
I Peter 1:9

knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Galatians 2:16 NKJV

You imply that God shows mercy to the faithful - again, where is scriptural suppport for this?
My support for that comes from the fact that unbelievers will not enter the kingdom of God.

For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Ephesians 5:5 NKJV

Therefore, only believers are shown mercy to enter His kingdom.

And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.
Luke 1:50 NKJV

His mercy is on those who believe.

through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Romans 5:2 NKJV

We have access by faith into His grace.

But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
Romans 6:17‭-‬18 NKJV

1) They were slaves of sin.
2) Yet they obeyed the gospel message.
3) Then they were given grace and set free from sin.

1) "He shows mercy on the faithful because that is whom He will show mercy on."
Your words, not mine.
2) What do you do with these verses J4J, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Cor. 2:14
3) "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins" Eph 2:1
Why do you insist you have the ability to have faith when God states you are dead in sin and not able to discern?
1) I disagree that God is dependent on us. We are dependent on Him for salvation. He has already determined to show mercy to the faithful. If nobody believed, God would not have to save anyone.
2) Christians can also be spiritually discerned, yet they were still able to believe.
3) God quickens those who were dead in trespasses and sins. You will say that is before faith and I will say it is after faith. This verse really doesn't say.

J4J claims this, "He shows mercy on the faithful because that is whom He will show mercy on." Where does the Bible state that God's mercy is based on and dependent our faithfulness?
You are the one claiming God's mercy is dependent on our faithfulness so that seems like something you have to prove, not me!

Romans 3
9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Romans 9
12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
Romans 9 states that God has mercy on whom He will have mercy. He shows mercy on the faithful because that is whom He will show mercy on.

Rms 3 means there are none good. It doesn't mean we can't believe!

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Matthew 7:11 NKJV

Evil people are able to do good at the same time they are sinful. The good they do is tainted by sin. They do not sin every day in every way! The Israelites at that time were particularly sinful. Showing there is no difference between Jew and Gentile.

No different? Then how do you explain the outcome? Were you wiser than those who do not respond? Were you more sensitive to spiritual things? Were you exposed to greater stimuli? Have you a greater strength of will? How do you explain the fact that while others turn away, you ran to the Savior? If so, who provided the greater strength of character, sensitivity, wisdom, spiritual stimuli, etc.? Who made you to differ? Do you claim this for yourself? Or were even those things gifts of God? If the gift of salvation is aquired by clearing the hurdle of belief and repentance, where is the grace in that? How is that not a wage?
No, grace is only grace when it's freely and sovereignly dispensed.
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.
Acts 10:34‭-‬35 NKJV

Observer

You said:

Conclusion - you were real smart and everyone else who didn't believe is just a dufus and a loser. I get it.
------

I wasn't any smarter than anyone else, I was more obedient to the truth.

And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
Hebrews 5:9 NKJV

Come on - why so coy?
You managed to overcome your natural revulsion to the things of God, your love of and bondage to sin, the blindness of Satan etc to decide to follow Christ.
It's not coy. If you believe, it doesn't mean you converted yourself. Apart from the preaching of the gospel and the work of Christ in securing salvation, I could not believe.

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
Acts 17:26‭-‬27 NKJV

God has preappointed our times and boundries so that we should seek the Lord, in hope that we might grope for Him and find Him. He isn't trying to hide from people. He reveals His will to all. I believed the truth, others hid from it. I knew Jesus was real, others know and procrastinate and others know and reject Him because they want to continue in sin. All things being equal, I didn't pretend the gospel wasn't true and I obeyed Him.

I did nothing to earn my salvation. Salvation is still a work of God to those who believe.

Question: why doesn't every person who sees the light turn? You had a better brain? Or perhaps you're morally superior to them? You had a better upbringing? What made the difference?
You can shine all the light you want on a pig, it doesn't change his nature.
Sad to see that you still don't get it at all. Ah well....
That's easy! I made the right choice. I made a decision based off of the truth and others hid from that truth or let themselves get distracted by procrastinating.

God will go in and change our heart after we believe and will ultimately change us at the Ressurection.

1) "When they heard this"
When they heard the truth is when GOD and GOD alone enabled them through faith the gift of God.
J4 You must stop cutting God out of the deal.
2) Thus does Paul teach the obvious Bible fact that there are people who cannot receive the truth and doctrines of Scripture no matter how hard the human tries to teach - OR the human tries to hear. Either GOD provides the calling and the faith or zero - Nothing happens spiritually.
3) The point made J4 is that in his carnal state man is diametrically opposed to GOD and will never react in his natural estate to the preaching of the Word - Without God's help (faith).
1) It doesn't say "God enabled them through faith the gift of God." Sorry, that was just fabricated out of your imagination. They just heard the preaching of the gospel. How can they believe on Him whom they haven't heard? They heard, there was no trickery.

2) Wrong. 1 Cor. 3:2 showed that those Christians also couldn't understand the things of the Spirit and they were still believers!

3) 1 Cor. 3:3 showed that those Christians were carnal. It didn't prevent them from believing the gospel.
