    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Its been a year since I found this old post. I do not see in Scripture where a person who is elected or not is dependent or not whether they wonder about the truth of Scripture in how it relates to them. I am sure there will be many who will miss heaven by just a little away. In the Parable of the women who missed the bridegroom because they went to go get more oil for their lamps were very interested, but it was too late. We live in a world that is becoming more anti Christian. Its only understood that so many would not become a Christian. I do not think its because God doomed them to hell, but the Harvest was not reached. Jesus said pray for the Lord to send forth laborers. If praying for God to send laborers was not important, then why pray. God has elected them anyway! I do not put God in a box to say He has to act this way in order for this to happen. I'm just going to wait to get home and ask any questions that may be important at that time. Calvinism is not taught in Scripture. Like any other interpretation, its just that. A man made may to interpret what God never said.

    “ about to listen ”
    This comment is to Doyce. I know that Doyce may never see this but for those the may read the comment and feel the same way I just wanted to address the crying child. I am not Calvinist. I feel, at least at this moment, the truth lies someplace in the middle. I would also freely admit that I lean more to Calvinism than any other interpretation. Without getting to deep as one point rests on the other, I will try to keep it simple. IF the child is elect of God then the child may cry wondering of salvation. Much the same as many Christians would do in times of trouble. However, if the Child is not Elect then the child is dead in sin and God would be the furthest worry from the child's mind. I think the parent needs to teach the full council of God. God is so much more than love alone. What of pure justice to name but one? When God saved the Hebrew people do you think the men in Cana or children for that matter cried at night wondering if they had been accepted by this Hebrew God? What of the people of Egypt the night of the exodus? Feel free to find me on Facebook if you would like to discuss this further, or my email is [email protected] Blessings, Nolan

    “ Thanks ”
    Like sermon audio and have great respect for my reformed brothers, I have tried to search out truth on this subject and only leaves me confused. After listening to Dr. Fernandes I can say that to me his view seems more biblical and sets My mind at ease. Thanks

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    I enjoyed the debate. I do not feel it answered the question which position was Biblical. To me it was still vague. I personally have difficulty with both positions. First, Jesus loved children...of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. As a loving Father, God is going to keep them from the edge of the cliff. Secondly, God is not the author of confusion, Calvinism has a way for a child to cry in their sleep worring about not being one of the elect. How can a parent teach all their children Gods love and at the same time say you may not be his choice for heaven. If that is the case, you will be tormented in an eternal flame so deal with it. 3rd, if a person chooses to accept Gods grace, it does not limit Gods ability, mark Gods character, or give anyone of something to boast. Instead, it shows that all things are possible with God, He is still Holy, all powerful, and all knowing. Then, I have nothing to boast if I choose to use my free will no more than if I tell my children to clean their room. Instead, they know the consequences if they dont. They can not boast on what they have an obligation to do. REPENTANCE is the same. If we boast, it is not Repentance. God has elected all who are living to breath. He controls the next heart beat. Yet, in His sovereignty gives people a choice.
