I never said we speak these truths to the unregenerate. These truths are made known by God to His elect, but never in their unregenerate state.
Perhaps it would be beneficial to not read more into my statements than what is given.

This is how it always goes on this forum, truth is given and then the trouble starts. Things are read into comments that simply aren't there or were not implied. Arguments are presented by me, and no one bothers to consider what was said. This can be verified by going through my comments and seeing if any responded to my questions.
Or, what I present is twisted.
It is usually due to a lack of understanding the topic at hand. God's truth will be imparted to His elect in due time. There are some here I care not to engage, you simply cannot get through to a pride filled sinner. Only the Spirit of God can bring about right understanding, and that starts with God given humility.

I have no desire to continue in this pointless debate. May God truly bless His elect with a deeper knowledge and understanding of His word.

How do they hear and how/why do they respond? '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
How does this natural man, this dead in trespasses and sin sinner hear and come to Christ when the bible says they cannot do so in their 'natural' state?
The word "natural" here stands opposed evidently to "spiritual." It denotes those who are governed and influenced by the natural instincts; the animal passions and desires, in opposition to those who are influenced by the Spirit of God. It refers to unregenerate people; but it has also not merely the idea of their being unregenerate, but that of their being influenced by the animal passions or desires. See the note on 1 Corinthians 15:44. The word "sensual" would correctly express the idea. The word is used by the Greek writers to denote that which man has in common with the brutes - to denote that they are under the influence of the senses, or the mere animal nature, in opposition to reason and conscience - Bretschneider.' -A.Barnes commentary
2 Peter 1:10 doesn't imply you have the ability to secure your own salvation.

Christopher,

The best way to learn truth is to open the bible, creeds and doctrines of men are written by mortal men and contain errors.
What do sinners do to be saved? Unless God draws {John 6:44}, unless the Spirit regenerates {John 3:3}, unless God elects {2 Thess. 2:13 is one of many verses on election} and unless God shows mercy {Eph.2:8-9} sinners will not and cannot be saved.
Romans 9:11 says "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". What did Jacob do to 'get saved'? Even the faith the elect has is a gift {Eph. 2:8-9}. Man is depraved in nature and will never come to Christ on his own. God is sovereign, salvation is of the Lord. To say a sinner does something, anything to get saved is wrong. It is the triune God that saves sinners, and those who understand this are filled with gratitude for His sovereign, electing, saving grace.
Someone commented here earlier not to listen to 'keyboard theologians'-I agree. Get on your knees, open His word and ask Him to show you. Listening to anyone here will only confuse you. God the Spirit is the teacher of His elect. Avoid forums like this which are filled with much error and lots of doublespeak.

Most excellent points Christopher. There really is no use coming here, when something is presented others start to take sides, then the attacks come. I should have known better.

Does God leave His elect in error Connor? Can you show me where I find that in my bible?

Nevermind, if you want to show me, please e-mail me.

Often times, especially in Pauline writing, the word “all” denotes “all types” or “all kinds.” For instance, in this same epistle, Paul writes that money is the “root of all (pas) evil” (1 Tim. 6:10).
So, when we put the pieces together, what the text is saying is:
… we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all types of men (as opposed to Israelites exclusively), that is (or, particularly) those who believe.
This is important to understand in light of Paul’s specific ministry to the Gentiles (Gal. 2:7). Christianity began among the Israelites. And the Jews at Jerusalem resisted the notion that God would spread the good news to the Gentiles. But, the New Testament writers consistently wrote of God saving “the world” and “all men.” Their meaning was “men of every kindred, tribe, tongue, and race” as opposed to Jews only. The Bible becomes very confusing and self-contradictory when people insist that the apostle John’s use of “world” and Paul’s use of “all” were meant to be understood universally.
Far from being a Universalist credo, or an Arminian proof text, this verse is consistent with the whole of Pauline thinking and theology. - from J. McClarty, read the whole study at http://salvationbygrace.org/current-qa/1-timothy-410/

This doctrine[particular redemption] necessarily follows election, for since God has elected a people from the foundation of the world, it follows they were the ones Christ went to the cross to die for. It does not make sense that Jesus would die for those God predetermined not to save. "If we say Christ's death was for everyone, then we cannot at the same time say it was only for those people whom God had chosen. If Christ died for everyone, God had no need to choose a special people. On the other hand, if we say that God did choose a special people as the Bible teaches - then it would have been pointless for Christ to die for everyone" (John Owen)

Benjamin - God blesses His elect with true truth, and we praise Him for it.

propitiation means 'satisfaction', 'atoning sacrifice', 'appeasing God's wrath'. Now, if Christ's sacrifice was for all, then God's wrath on all would be appeased, satisfied due to His sacrifice. In other words, there would be no more wrath remaining because it was spent on Christ. With that said, you have to go to other verses to see that 'world' doesn't mean everyone, and all doesn't mean all- like the verse I gave earlier from 2 Cor. 5:19. We already know multitudes have perished in their sins and await final judgment, so obviously 'world' didn't include them. Pulling verses out and making them stand alone to justify Arminianism and universalism just doesn't work. Misunderstanding the powerful atoning work of Christ has led many astray and continues to do so.

May God free you from your Arminian stronghold Tim, if you belong to Him . . . He will.

Most cannot accept that God elects some to life, and leaves others to perish in their sins. It is His choice, not the sinners. He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy, who can say He is unfair? Who is worthy of salvation? None, that's who

2 Cor. 5:19, 'To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not counting their trespasses against them...'
Now, IF 'world' means all, then this verse must mean that every single sinner's sins are not counted against them. We know this is false because we have other verses to cross reference and gain insight... there are already multitudes in outer darkness.
The Arminian rips out 'I lay down my life for my sheep' from their bibles and spews out the nonsense that Jesus only made salvation 'possible' for all,
the bible says no such thing.
The Arminian claims Christ loves 'all', so Esau got robbed didn't he? Psalm 5:5 is ripped out of the Arminian bible as well.

IF God loves 'all', and IF Christ died for 'all', then why aren't 'all' saved? What prevents them from eternal life?
This is very informative -http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/other_studies/particular_redemption.shtml
From that article,The universal redemptionists infer that Jesus did not accomplish salvation for anyone, just made it possible for all. As Spurgeon put it, "He died for everyone in general, and no one in particular", and universalists are the ones who actually limit the atonement"..shows you how Spurgeon used doublespeak, as my previous link pointed out.

This article exposes Spurgeon's confusing ways - https://www.mountzionpbc.org/Old%20School%20Baptist/HYPER-CALVINISM%20(FULLER)%20(SPURGEONISM)%20BY%20STANLEY%20PHILLIPS.pdf

Christ is the Savior of His sheep, for whom He laid down His life. IF He died for all, then why are not all saved? The Arminian says because of unbelief. John Owen says...
"The Father imposed His wrath due unto, and the Son underwent punishement for, either:
(1) All the sins of all men.
(2) All the sins of some men, or
(3) Some of the sins of all men.
In which case it may be said:
(a) That if the last be true, all men have some sins to answer for, and so none are saved.
(b) That if the second be true, then Christ, in their stead suffered for all the sins of all the elect in the whole world, and this is the truth.
(c) But if the first be the case, why are not all men free from the punishement due unto their sins? You answer, Because of unbelief. I ask, Is this unbelief a sin, or is it not? If it be, then Christ suffered the punishment due unto it, or He did not. If He did, why must that hinder them more than their other sins for which He died? If He did not, He did not die for all their sins.”- John Owen

What joy this dear brother is now basking
in! The sermons and articles from this dear
brother have been a blessing - to God be
the glory. It is far better to be with
Christ than to be here, may our Lord be
with those left here, for now, that both
grieve the loss of a loved one and rejoice
that he is with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise God Henry Mahan was a faithful man
of God til the end. He has heard from his
Master, "Well done, thou good and faithful
servant: thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over many
things: enter thou into the joy of thy
lord."

From Trump's twitter feed...

As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals....

....on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!

Just another unregenerate politician pandering to the masses.

Sister,

Thank you for your kind response, I pray your husband will allow it, just for this instance. I would be so blessed to have private exchange with you from time to time, you have edified me greatly and I do NOT want to lose that!
This forum is no place for me, it's time to shake off the dust.
Please ask your husband to reconsider, just this once.

I will make it a matter of prayer.

much love and blessings to you and your husband.

Sister MS,

Is there any way to have contact with you outside this forum? I have included my email if you like to contact me that way. I desire to keep in touch with you, but not on this forum. You have been a blessing to me and I want to continue having contact with you if at all possible.

BTW, the suggested site from you is truly a great blessing. I was able to contact the owner of that site and received a most gracious reply from him. I am still reading his book on John 3:16- there is great blessing in what he wrote. Again, thank you and God bless

Sister MS,

Most excellent advice. An hour from now he will be arguing with somebody else.
Yes, sinners will flee to Christ...all by His marvelous grace.

The Lord bless you sister, and your husband.

This is an excellent article by William Huntington,'the Arminian Skeleton', which touches on the heresy of universal salvation, among other heresies held to by Arminians - https://againstdutyfaith.blogspot.com/2010/01/arminian-skeleton-by-william-huntington.html
"I fear that some have been so strenuous for universal, that they have neglected particular redemption. Every man that is saved must experience redemption for himself; it must be known by every particular sheep of the Saviours fold. Universal redemption will afford but little comfort to one in rebellion against God, condemned by his own conscience, and who never was purged from his guilt, nor redeemed from his vain conversation. Thus redemption becomes particular to every chosen vessel: nor can it ever be proved to be universal, until we have gotten the universal testimony of every man in the world having received it; which I see no likelihood of at present." Wm Huntington

Last time for this - Christ was addressing Nicodemus, a religious JEW, who thought God was a God of the JEWS only. When Christ said God loved 'the world' in this way, He gave His only Son, He was stating God loved the Gentiles as well, but even that doesn't mean 'all'. The end of the verse gives the true meaning, "He gave His only begotten Son". For whom did Christ die? "I lay down my life for MY SHEEP". Thus, God loving the 'world' would mean loving both Jew AND Gentiles He would elect unto life - something Nicodemus would not have understood apart from Christ stating so. God wasn't just a God of the Jews.

The universalist view is where the confusion arises from.
Christ's finished work on the cross didn't just 'make possible' salvation for sinners, He sealed the deal and stated 'It is finished', thus, securing salvation completely without a doubt for those God would draw and elect unto life.
There is so much error held to on this forum, and others joining forces together to uphold these errors, taking 'sides', with a 'fan club' mentality. What a sad state of affairs it is to see such behavior, then to justify that behavior. Some attempt to 'teach' here, when they don't even have the foundations right! They hold to error, defend ecumenism, promote demonic mysticism,sad indee
