People who are confused about Scripture saying Jesus was the son of Joseph.

Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
John 1:45

That means people considered Joseph His father and Joseph was in the role of the father in Jesus' family. Jesus was virgin born!

Now about salvation by works. You all are confused about faith. You seem to think it is a work. It isn't!

1) John4Jesus, my mind wasn't set on the flesh, I talked to a homeless lady for an hour yesterday, trying to encourage her, I gave her Christian resources and prayed with her. I'd watch what you accuse people of.

2) Jesus didn't have an earthly father, that is heresy, Joseph raised him as though He was his son, but He is the Son of God.
3) My bible says God is angry with the wicked every day, and it's interesting that you only got all up in arms about my poor and rich example and not the preservation of the Jewish people and the extinction of the Hitites or God's wrath toward Edom.
4) And nothing I've said is pro Calvinism, it's just biblical truth, if the atonement is not limited, Hitler, Stalin, Marx, Nero, and everyone who has ever lived would then be in Heaven, thus universalism.

1) You seem to be equating wealth with God's favoritism. I think that is a fleshly way of looking at it.

2) The verse clearly says Jesus was the son of Joseph. Take your argument up with God!

3) I wasn't up in arms.

4) Dishonest much?

not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Titus 3:5

God saves us through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.

That is baptism of the Holy Spirit.

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Galatians 3:27

It is at baptism that a person puts on Christ and then is saved. His works are applied to their account. They are seen as righteous before God.

BRF...

In response to something you posted earlier. God brought people into battle with Israel who would not live peacefully with her. It was a form of judgement. It didn't mean they were unable to live peacefully with Israel, but rather they wouldn't.

Why did God raise up Pharaoh? "for to show in thee my power; and that my name maybe declared throughout all the earth.". That's because God wants all to believe and come to the knowledge of the truth. The Bible actually says that people who won't believe have to actively surpress the truth. Otherwise they would believe!

"it mans decision which cleans his sin away.

So explain this text

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his MERCY he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.
(not our decision)"
--------------------
Look at what Aninias said to Paul:

And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’
Acts 22:16

It's what one does when they call on the name of the Lord. God then baptizes them of the Holy Spirit which washes away their sins!

Faith is not a work.

So God's love for you in particular is just a random occurance that could have happened to anyone else but didn't? I guess if all you care about is yourself that will do!

To say a person must be obedient to God's instruction to believe in order for Him to save them does not in any way teach salvation by works. Yes? How so? Show me in the Mosaic Law where God commanded anyone to believe in Jesus Christ for eternal life! Or that being obedient in one command somehow makes a person innocent of the others they have committed!

Jesus chose to save me after I believed in Him. I washed away my sins by calling on His name and being baptized.

Now context matters in those verses I showed you. However, context doesn't erase the fact that they state the truth that God doesn't show favoritism toward us. What, you thought you were somehow more special than every other sinner?!

Well then you are willfully disobeying what God has clearly revealed. At some point you must either take God for a lier or you don't care what He says. He shows no favoritism!

He used Jacob for His purposes and made a covenant with Israel in order to reveal Himself to the other nations. He wants all to know Him and come to the knowledge of the truth! Why are you against that?

When people become believers in Jesus through the gospel, it doesn't mean they somehow erased their guilt before God by their faith. The Holy Spirit baptize believers, thereby saving them. Jesus is the one who purchased our salvation and gives it to those who believe in Him.

conner from Ca...

Not sure where wealth comes into the picture. I think your mind is set on the flesh there.

Jesus did have an earthly father who raised Him. That wouldn't be out of context.

If I did't use verses I would get asked to show in Scripture where it says God doesn't show favoritism. If I use multiple scriptures to show that God doesn't show favoritism, I get accused of just copying and pasting. Even though they unequivocally show God does not show favoritism!

To believe God's Word that He loves the world doesn't mean I believe in universalism. Jesus died for the whole world, especially for those who believe.

I understand the context of the verses. I'm not even arguing that salvation is by works. The point is, God doesn't show favoritism, remember? Are you going to continue to say He does?

One of the beliefs of Calvinism is that God shows favoritism toward some, which He clearly does not. Jesus died for us while we were yet sinners. If He died for only some, that would be favoritism. God so loves the world that He sent His Son. If God only loves a few, that would be favoritism. However, God doesn't show favoritism toward anyone. He loves us all and desires that all people are saved.

Dave from Oz writes:

God doesn't have favorites?
Here we go again.
Did he favour Jacob?
----------------------

Have you not read?

Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
Luke 20:21

But from those who seemed to be something—whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man—for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me.
Galatians 2:6

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.
James 2:8‭-‬9

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

I dont understand why they are still having problems with these doctrine. Its not the doctrine of election they have issues with it is actually the Christ who loved a people before there was time.
---------------

Baloney! People that are opposed to Calvinism are faithful to Jesus' teaching that God loves the whole world and desires all to be saved.

Calvinism makes salvation out to be a lottery whereby some randomly win and some randomly lose. They forget God doesn't show favoritism!

Aren't they all? Alot of the ones I've seen pop up around here aren't even in Muslim communities. They are hoping to conquer and take over. Why have so many come over after 9/11?

Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
Acts 1:6‭-‬7

Notice how Jesus didn't say the kingdom of Israel isn't going to ever be restored? Jesus says they weren't allowed to know when. That means the kingdom of Israel will be restored and we are starting to see that in our day.

They will be contacted. Either by preachers of the gospel or by stones.

...“ ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”
Luke 19:38‭-‬40

Buckeyes...

I believe the gospel has gone out into all the world and continues to do so. Do you know of any who have not or will not know the gospel?

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: “Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”
Romans 10:17‭-‬18
