Wow. Did not expect so many responses.

These verses brought tears to my eyes:

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

"I would have despaired unless I had known the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."

Thank you so much Christiana.

Thank you ALL for your prayers.

In times of despair the battle rages in ones soul. The height of carnality overshadows the glimpse of spirituality and only the prayers of saints can secure a sure victory.

Thank you for helping me in the battle.

Hi.

Since I am a firm believer in prayer, I ask that some would pray for me as I am going through a deep trial of despair. Sometimes hope can only be attained through the prayer of the saints.

This I covet.

Thanks in advance.

.... thanks....

Of course you will not accept that, because you are desperate. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I will allow you to use your theological liberal as a source simply because it would take less time to allow you to use your definition than to prove to you how ridiculous your source is.

OK, now that you have found a definition that agrees with your theological bias, there must be another reason other than that it agrees with your theology for you to infuse it into the text. The question then becomes, if "all of humanity" and "believers only" are valid definitions of kosmos, then which one should we apply to John 3:16?

Surely, just because a word CAN mean something does not signify that it does. As you have already illustrated, there are 7 plus uses of the word. So what other reason do you have for preferring "believers only" over "all of humanity" in John 3:16.

Ok so, not only do you not know what the difference, but you do not care following a theological liberal to advance your theology.

That's fine. If that is what you choose. But you still have to deal with his circular reasoning.

You can't assume that Kosmos means "believers" because John 3:16 uses it, and state that John 3:16 means "believers" because is uses the word "kosmos"

You are also faced with the problem of "kosmos" meaning both "believers" and "unbelievers" without any linguistic restriction. The only restriction would be one's theological bias.

I already done the research for you. Thayer's Lexicon has been noted and rejected a long time ago. If you want to place your faith on one theological liberal who is a heretic by no uncertain terms then go right ahead. It is quite obvious from Thayer's lexicon that he is making a theological statement NOT a linguistic one.

... need more space

Are you laughing at the fact that you do not know the difference between a lexicon and a dictionary?

Like I said, all you have is circular reasoning. Getting a theological liberal to parrot the same lie does not help your case one bit.

You can't say that Kosmos means elect because John 3:16 says so, and John 3:16 says so because Kosmos means elect.

God will not in one page reffer to the world as those that are lost and then flip around and call the world those that are saved. Only a Calvinist would do that.

There is no place in the Bible, no dictionary, and no where in this world that world is defined as the elect.

"Fabricating definitions"
Hahahahaha! Good one, Yamil!
Trouble is, I made no "definition" per say, but rather took time to provide a brief yet cogent explanation of what the meaning and scope of the word "WORLD" was as found in John 3:16.
Admit it. You just didn't agree with it. And THAT'S the bottom line.
It's my guess that providing explanation is sorta taboo as far as you're concerned, huh.
If that's the case, you probably have a REAL BIG PROBLEM with any Bible commentary since said commentaries, of necessity, "fabricate definitions" concerning the Scriptures.
Providing a new meaning that does not exist anywhere to a word its hardly commentary at all let alone an honest one.

Besides you contradict yourself all in one sentence. You state that you make no explanation but you want to provide the meaning.

Newsflash:
Providing a meaning to a word IS a definition.

It does not take a genius to figure out that "world" is never defined as "the elect."

It does not take a genius to figure out that God can desire something of someone that he would not force them to do.

I just did.

Fabricating definitions that do not exist anywhere and forcing it into the Bible is at the very least a flagrant disrespect towards the Scriptures.

Your definition of "world" does not exist in the Bible, dictionary, nor anywhere else in the "world" but yet you insist on keeping it.

Seems to me that your disrespectful approach to scripture states more loudly that you are more concerned with Calvinism's will than you are with God's.

That still does not resolve your contradiction. You cannot apply one hermeneutic, and then change at will. There must be an equal standard. Otherwise you fall into twisting the scriptures to fit your theology rather than allowing the scriptures to mold your theology.

You can't state that if God wills someone to be saved that he must make them saved

then make a 360 and state

That God wills to sanctify his elect but has not done it yet.

You can't state that those without the Holy Spirit cannot resist the calling of God, while those who are sealed with the spirit do.

To keep insisting on it will make some to believe that Calvinism is nothing more than a knotted-up ball of self-contradiction.

I agree but the fact still remains the same: God does not will you to sin, but yet you do. Applying your twisted way of thinking, God is impotent to preserve you from sin.

You know very well, that I have no problem answering your questions with a simple yes or no no matter how ridiculous they sound.

I just thought that since you have a problem with dispensationalism, then you may need to talk to your pastor concerning the issue.

Unless you want me to be your pastor.

According to my hermeneutic, Yamil, God not only DESIRES the elect's sanctification, but sees it through, by His grace through faith, to the end!
Check out: 1 Thess 5:23; Heb 2:11; Acts 26:18 and 1 Cor 6:11.
Looks as if God's gettin' the job done!
Ya know, you have a rather peculiar notion even of sanctification (as if it were some sort of sinless state).
Now what were you saying about "strawmen?"
You still sin, so you are not sanctified. What you are referring to is called glorification, not sanctification. Big difference.

The dehhvastating truth is that you cannot point to one elect who has been sanctified.

But it serves to see the hypocrisy of your hermeneutic and the ridiculousness of your strawman.

Somehow in your twisted mind:

Its ok for God to will you not to sin without making you not sin

But somehow

Its not ok for God to will the lost to be saved without making them to be saved.

Sounds like a theological agenda to me. And all that mass confusion simply because you want to fabricate a definition for "world" that does not exist.

You disqualify one valid (and the most common) meaning for one that does not exist.

Somebody needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

You forgot to add that according to your hermeneutic, God is a further failure by desiring your sanctification and not being powerful enough to force you to not sin.

Anymore strawmen?

No one is trying to teach that Abraham is going to inherit all of humanity Mr. Strawman.

Hopefully you are not trying to teach that Abraham is going to inherit all the elect!

Try again without the silly strawmen please.

quote wrote:
Rom 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
The world is Abraham's inheritance by promise. God is not a promise breaker. Those who are not children of promise predestined to be born again of the incorruptible seed of Abraham and Sarah are not part of the world of John 3:16.
Deal with it instead of giving us your usual soft shoe routine.
According to your careless hermeneutic, God is a promise breaker since Abraham has not inherited the world yet.

DJC49 refers to an article that employs the whole worn out circular reasoning: Kosmos does not mean "all of humanity" because John 3:16 does not refer to all of humanity; john 3:16 does not refer to all of humanity because kosmos does not refer to all of humanity.

It's simple English folks. It just goes to show you how the sovereignty of God is nothing more than table talk to the Calvinist. There is not really one practical area in their life that I can see it exemplified.

Sorry folks. You can't just make up a definition and plant it into the Bible.

Do you not fear what you are doing by adding to the Bible?

The dehhvastating truth is that your definition does not exist anywhere; not in the Bible, not any dictionary, nor anywhere else in the world.

You see, to me, the sovereignty of God is not simply a theory to me that I manipulate to serve my theology.

I actually believe that God is sovereign. And because I believe he is sovereign, I am going to practice that truth in his Word by allowing him to mean what he states, and state what he means.

I do not need to fabricate meanings, because the truth is not a threat to me no matter how dehhvastating it may seem.
