It only sounds good IF right doctrine means nothing to you. We are not called to hold hands with and sing kumbaya with those who hold to and promote heresy. This is exactly what brings about lukewarmness, compromise, and ecumenism.
The remnant will stand firm on His truth, we will speak out against error and heresy.

Enjoying your posts Need Him.

Darren, this is relevant, again, from Spurgeon..
Others are shifty because they are so desperately fond of "good fellowship." "Hail fellow, well met," is their cry, be it traveller or highwayman. They are so good-natured that they must needs agree with everybody. They are cousins of Mr Anything. Their brains are in other people's heads. If they were at Rome they would kiss the pope's toe, but when they are at home they make themselves hoarse with shouting "No Popery."
Beware of those who come from the town of Deceit – Mr. Facing-both-ways, Mr. Fair-speech and Mr. Two-tongues are neighbours who are best at a distance. Though they look one way, as boatmen do, they are pulling the other. They are false as the devil's promises, and as cruel as death and the grave.

Hypocrites of all sorts are abominable, and he who deals with them will rue it. He who tries to cheat the Lord will be quite ready to cheat his fellow men. Great cry generally means little wool.

Surely when the devil sees hypocrites at their little game, it must be as good as a play to him. He tempts genuine Christians, but he lets hypocrites alone, because he is sure of them. He need not shoot at lame ducks; his dog can pick them up any day."-w.wicketgate.co.uk/issue67/e67_4.html

Darren.....

John UK says:
The other thing Dolores, is to keep scriptural balance. So we see that:
1 Timothy 2:3-6 KJV
(3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
(4) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
If we accept all of scripture, we will never get into an extreme, cultish position."
"God's general love for all does not guarantee salvation for all; but one thing is for sure, all are invited to the feast, and if some refuse, they perish."
"John 3:17 KJV
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
There are three worlds in this text, and I do not believe anyone can stick "all kinds of men" instead of "world" or "Gentiles as well as Jews" instead of "world". So it is perfectly okay to say that world means the world, that is, all men."
John UK wrote:
....for whom Christ died particularly...
the very words of John UK

To say one holds to the d.o.g. yet spew out all the above proves one thing - double mindedness, a fence straddler, a hypocrite. Such should be avoided by God's elect.

The doctrines of grace do NOT include universal love and salvation for all, to claim to hold to these doctrines yet uphold universalism is the height of hypocrisy. It's also an indication of a 'double minded' man.
If you don't even have the foundations right, you would be better off staying home rather than proclaim an accursed gospel or half truths, which is no truth and saves no one.

" None of God’s sheep will continue to believe the lie of universal love and redemption, they will rejoice that Christ “love US and gave Himself for US.” If God loved all men without exception, and Christ died for all of them and the Holy Spirit was trying to save them..they would ALL be saved or He would be an unloving, unjust and weak being!

Do you worship the god of universal love? If so, you do not worship the God of the Bible and you will die in your sins! Don’t believe me? Open the Bible and read for yourself!! I pray that you will! The love of God is in the TRUE Christ, not these many antichrists!" - Gary Shepard-https://www.pristinegrace.org/media.php?id=1304

Thank you for the answers US.
The latter half of my set of questions were directed at those who insist God loves everyone via John 3:16, and that Christ's atoning work was 'sufficient for 'all'. If atonement means payment, and propitiation means 'appeasement', then it stands to reason that the debt for sin has been paid, the wrath of God appeased - but for who? All? Then all would be saved.
Again, the latter set of questions I presented go unaddressed by those who started this debate by stating God loves everyone, Christ's finished work is 'sufficient' for all - a phrase we find nowhere in scripture.2 Cor. 5:19 is ignored.
This is why threads go on and on and on. Diversion tactics are used, stories are told, when all else fails, then start accusing falsely by calling others white washed sepulchres and claim they don't speak of Christ's pristine Gospel, or deem them 'unsaved'!
God's elect are to be ever learning, growing in the grace and knowledge of Him. We are to be of one mind, but NOT at the expense of truth.
Scripture has been given against universal love and salvation- it is called 'Reformed'or 'Calvinism' by some. Yet, these truths given to me came from studying HIS WORD, going into Greek and Heb. definitions,etc. In the end,only God can open the mind.

Again, direct answers please..

US - do you deny the bible teaches men are dead in trespasses and sin? Do you deny God must quicken? Do you deny salvation is by God's grace and not man's work? Do you deny that Christ laid down His life for His sheep? Do you deny that no one can come unless the Father draws? That God elects?

Does God love all? Anybody?
Does God save all? Anybody?
I lay down my life for my 'sheep'- is that 'all'?
Jacob I loved, Esau I hated - what does that verse mean?
2 Cor. 5:19, 'To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not counting their trespasses against them'Does this verse mean the entire world will be reconciled to God, Him not counting their trespasses against them?
Does 'world' mean 'all' here? Anyone?

NO rabbit trails, no diversion tactics,no vagueness, no double speak. Just straightforward answers to the above questions please.

It would seem when the Arminian has trotted out all their proof texts and those texts have been proven to not mean what the Arminian claims, they resort to name calling and falsely accusing. The hypocrisy of that is they then scold others for doing the very thing they do.

The Arminian will not address the questions presented that prove their theology to be erroneous. Thus, the rabbit trails, stories and distractions keep on going like the energizer bunny.

Does God love all Tim? Anybody?
Does God save all Tim? Anybody?
I lay down my life for my 'sheep'- is that 'all'?
Jacob I loved, Esau I hated - what does that verse mean?

US - do you deny the bible teaches men are dead in trespasses and sin? Do you deny God must quicken? Do you deny salvation is by God's grace and not man's work? Do you deny that Christ laid down His life for His sheep? Do you deny that no one can come unless the Father draws? That God elects? Your denial of the 'so called doctrines of grace' must mean you place yourself in the Arminian camp right?
Just because the words behind TULIP aren't found in the bible doesn't mean the teachings they represent aren't. Just because the phrase 'doctrines of grace' cannot be found verbatim in the bible doesn't mean the teachings behind it are made up. The questions I gave at the top of this post prove that.

So it upsets you that an acronym or a phrase is used by sovereign grace believers? BTW, I don't recall anyone here using any of the words from that acronym, there has been quite a bit of scriptural support given, albeit ignored, to support the arguments against free will/arminianism/universalism.

'For by GRACE are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works, lest any man boast' Eph. 2:8,9
Why kick against the goads US?

Tim
Who here makes excuses concerning proclaiming the pristine gospel of grace? You make the accusation, can you be more specific in who you are accusing? Also, who are the white washed sepulchre you referenced to earlier? You haven't been paying attention Tim, this debate started over those who say God loves all and died for all - that is 'universalism'.

You haven't addressed my prior questions so I will ask again,
Does God love all Tim? Anybody?
Does God save all Tim? Anybody?
I lay down my life for my 'sheep'- is that 'all'?
Jacob I loved, Esau I hated - what does that verse mean?
2 Cor. 5:19, 'To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not counting their trespasses against them'Does this verse mean the entire world will be reconciled to God, Him not counting their trespasses against them?
Does 'world' mean 'all' Tim? If you do not hold to universalism, these questions should be easy to answer.

"Many today will seek to worship God at the altar of universalism. They will sit under a preacher who lulls them into the sleep of eternal death with the message of “God loves you, He loves everybody, Christ died for all men so He died for you.” They will perish under this deception while clutching one verse, John 3:16, without knowing what the Bible really says about the love of God and without knowing who Christ died for. Without knowing that God hates some men with a holy and just hatred! We know this by the whole of God’s word. Here are just a couple of many verse that show that the god of universal love is not Jehovah God:
Rom 9:13 & Psa 5:5, 'The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.'
And who are these workers of iniquity? I’ll let Christ Himself answer:
Mat 7:21 -23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity"-G.Shepard-https://www.pristinegrace.org/media.php?id=1304

'To "win" them is to teach them, for the word has the signification of teaching or doctrine; see Proverbs 4:2' - J.Gill
Win means 'catch', it is similar to Luke 5:10, 'fear not, henceforth that shalt 'catch'men.' Does that mean we have the power to save? Of course not. Right teaching, right doctrine, which is what teaching means, is what 'catches' men. A faulty accursed gospel catches no one and only makes false converts.
Dan 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
It's like guiding the lost in the right direction, pointing them to the right way to go. It never implies anyone has power to save a sinner. Too many have taken credit for 'winning' sinners to Christ, it is God who saves and not men.
BTW, I use the KJV as well, but, I understand it is a translation.

No mortal sinner has the ability to 'win souls'. Paul tells us he wasn't ashamed of the Gospel for IT is the power of salvation. It's pointless to explain the 'go to' verses the Arminians trot out, they close off their minds to it all. To state the 'doctrines of grace' aren't biblical because the exact phrases aren't in the bible is also ridiculous, the teaching behind those phrases is presented throughout scripture.
Who is a white sepulchre Tim? You just scolded others for this same behavior you now display. This is the height of hypocrisy. NO ONE here stated the Gospel should not go forth to ALL, so your point is moot. Also, to state using the Greek and Hebrew to 'fit' preconceived notions shows utter ignorance. BTW, the KJV IS an English translation Tim. What you fail to realize is this, there are multiple meanings for 'world' and 'all'. Context determines meaning.
The original argument was concerning universal love and salvation - the Arminians here refuse to answer the arguments against this heresy. Instead, a ton of rabbit trails and diversions have been used.
Why can't Arminians address the words of Christ such as I lay down my life for my sheep or I give my life as a ransom for many, which simply means 'many'? Because of 'pre-conceived ideas' held to by them.

Tim,

How is giving scriptural support, definitions from the Greek and Hebrew, and cross referencing a 'monopoly'? Your back door innuendos don't go unnoticed Tim.
There simply aren't two sides to God's truth concerning how and who He saves, one of free will/universalism and one of complete sovereign grace.
There was a time I held to the 'free will' heresy. BUT, the more I studied His word, the more He has shown me the error of that heresy. Most arguments against the doctrines of grace are based on translated words in English.
Until God opens your understanding to the doctrines of grace you will continue to make innuendos, etc. and gnash your teeth against them. Sovereign grace is repulsive to the pride of man. That's exactly how I used to react when others spoke of them.

Tim

It's true, there have been times when grace was not exhibited. We are ALL guilty of this to some extent and degree. Many of your own comments are rude and malicious at times, so as you scold others, may you also remember yourself in that scolding.
Discussing God's truth should never lead to hateful maligning speech, it does at times due to our pride.

Yes, I did read it, here's what you said, "If a man has free will and trusts Jesus Christ to save him, Jesus saves him. If he does not have free will, but trusts Christ anyway, Christ saves him" that's double speak Tim.
That's a safe way of straddling the fence isn't it?
Doctrines of grace - the words represented by the acronym TULIP aren't found in God's word verbatim, but, the truth behind them is...

Tim,
The will of man is not free when it comes to spiritual truth and the ability to discern - '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
'The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?' Jeremiah 17:9
Heart references to 'inner man, mind, will, heart'- ALL of the 'inner man' including the will, is 'deceitful' which means 'full of trickery', 'insidious'. The inner man's will is desperately wicked, meaning 'sick, incurable, woeful'. Tell me this Tim, how can a sinner in their natural state exercise their 'free will' to 'accept Jesus'? They can't, God's word proves you to be in great error. Natural men are like brute beasts. Natural men love darkness, they will not come to the light ever. You believe a heresy, may God show you truth. That requires diligent study, much prayer, and the Spirit of God to open your mind to His truth.

Again, 'all' isn't a reference to every person ever born is it? For if it were, hell would be empty. How do they call? You ignore the verses presented that state God must draw, quicken {Eph. 2:1,5} etc. in favor of a 'face value' type of religion. You take an English translation at its word and form theology from that.

'All THEM that call' - it is only those that cry out 'all' refers to. Every one of those, 'all' who do cry out God will be gracious to. All points to who? "THEM THAT CALL" and not a 'random' group.

Rev. 3:20 isn't a reference to the 'door of a sinner's heart', rather, it is the Laodicean church who has closed the door to Christ, read the whole chapter and study the context of it. It is the door of this church the knocking references to.
They already claim to be 'religious'.
The reason that Jesus is at the door knocking is because the church has effectively removed Jesus. He is no longer present at the church and they are only keeping up appearances. Jesus is highlighting the irony that a church with a reputation of spirituality is a church where he needs to knock on the door and wait for it to be answered. Therefore, today we must recognize that outward growth and spiritual reputation can be present when Jesus is not.
False gospel=false converts

Who will come Tim? How do they come? Re read my comment. I never referenced to Isaiah, or Paul and Barnarbas did I? None of them told sinners to make a decision, etc. None of them told sinners 'God loves you". You have added to my comment something I never said or implied.
Your reference to the open door doesn't mean man has the ability. Who was being addressed in that text? The 'lukewarm' church, who have cast Christ out of its midst. They profess to believe already, but He rebukes them. How does a sinner 'hear' Tim? Who opens the understanding? Luke 24 will provide you with the answer.
No one can come to me unless the Father draws - John 6:44. Draw means 'drag'. It is the supernatural mighty power of God that drags the sinner from the bondage of darkness and sin to Himself. No one comes apart from that, for 'all love darkness'.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim. 2:15

If the gospel some preach includes phrases like 'God loves you' or 'make your decision' 'invite Jesus into your heart', or any 'work' or method of man, it is powerless to save and is accursed.

God commands sinners, not giving them a choice, but commands them to repent and believe. Repent is in the present imperative active mood.
The present tense usually denotes continuous kind of action. It shows 'action in progress' or 'a state of persistence.' The imperative mood is a command or instruction given to the hearer, charging the hearer to carry out or perform a certain action. Same thing with 'believe' - http://www.ntgreek.org/learn_nt_greek/verbs1.htm

1 Timothy 2:3-6 has been addressed. Paul is addressing Timothy, a believer, he says 'God our Savior' - so who is referenced here? Believers or unbelievers?
'All' has 3 meanings, 'all, the whole, every kind of'. How do you determine the right meaning?
Did Christ give himself as a ransom for many or all - all kinds of?
Did Christ lay down his life for all, or for His sheep?

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." Matt. 1:21
He saves his people, not 'all'.
When you don't cross reference, you end up with Arminianism

Claiming one holds to the doctrines of grace, yet comes here and pushes Arminianism, is proof not all are what they claim.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8
