She is sinning, all the while claiming God placed her there. What is wrong with people's discernment? Even CT doesn't say anything is wrong with a female pastor. It's basically an article about a pastoral change with no mention of sin.

1.) The natural man cannot do that which is pleasing to God (Romans 8:8) faith is pleasing to God, therefore man cannot have faith in God

2.) I already showed you... Hebrews you tried to use the word "all" to say that Jesus atoned for everyone,

3.) Read my answer in its context, I know everyone throughout all time and space has sinned, don't twist my words.

4.) #4, as far as I know, the "Book it" Pizza Hut club is no longer around, so I don't care if you've read more books than me.
J4J, I'm done talking to you for thus:
1.) You're mocking me and others.

1) The natural man is without the gospel, so how can he believe? You are assuming that faith is pleasing to God. If a person doesn't have Jesus in them, nothing they do pleases God. Even their good works are as filthy rags.

2) That's what the verse says. Don't proclaim me wrong, show me. Show me where Jesus didn't die for everyone. It's not universalism because Jesus didn't pay the price for individual sins. He just died and was worthy to be raised again because of His sinlessness.

3) You said the Pharisees and probably others perfectly obeyed the law.

4) You're the one that brought up investing in books. You assumed I hadn't read any before.

1.) But J4J, faith is pleasing to God, therefore the natural man cannot have faith.
2.) I guess we're just going to have to disagree on that point, because you've twisted a bunch of verses.
3.) I beg to differ, the Pharisees did it pretty well, and various people have probably done it.
4.) Okay, that's arrogant, you don't even know me, yet you're willing to make that claim?
1) The natural man won't believe if they haven't heard, but God in His mercy, has given us the Gospels so that hearing, they may believe. Scripture only teaches that without faith, it is impossible to please God. It doesn't mean God is pleased by faith.

2) How?

3) Probably? You don't even know? All have sinned.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 3:23

4) I said probably, so that means more than likely, not definitely. Is it arrogant of you to think I haven't read more than you?

1.) Your theology has a problem with Hebrews 11:6, the natural man cannot do that which is pleasing to God, faith is pleasing to God therefore man cannot, by himself, have faith in God.

2.) I showed you how you were taking scripture out of context to fit your theology.

3.) What does it say in Hebrews 11? All these died in faith. Faith has always been a necessity for salvation. And I understand the difference between faith and the works of the law

4.) Have you ever thought to invest in reading books?

1) Scripture doesn't teach any contradictions between Hebrews 11:6 and being saved by faith. Nobody can do anything pleasing to God, even Christians, if it weren't for Jesus indwelling them through the Holy Spirit. We are saved by faith. Meaning, you will be saved because of your faith. Faith proceeds salvation! People believe through preaching.

2) No, you accused me of twisting scripture instead of facing the fact that you were wrong.

3) I never once said faith wasn't necessary for salvation. It is different than obeying the mosaic law. Sinful people won't obey the law, but they can be saved by faith in Jesus Christ.

4) I've probably read more books than you. The most important being the Bible.

1) The Old Testament saints were saved by faith, Romans 4:2-3
"For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. [3] For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness."
No one has ever gotten to Heaven by works, read Hebrews 11, "But without faith it is impossible to please God"

2) and J4J, you seem to be taking scripture out of context once again, Galatians has to do with the Galatians who had distorted the gospel.

3) J4J, I don't see the contrast, I see you twisting scripture, misinterpreting scriptures, not taking the whole verse in context, etc.

4) And I have to ask, where do you learn theology from?

1) Okay, no problem with that.

2) Connor7 seems to equate Calvinism with scripture and where scripture doesn't line up with it, Connor7 says the verbatim quotes from the Bible are taken out of context because he can't grasp the fact that Calvinism is wrong.

3) Connor7 then can't tell a difference between faith and works of the law.

4) Then he questions where I learned theology from. The Holy Bible, duh.

Okay John UK, I'll let that soak in!

Herein is a big error with Calvinism. Equating faith as some sort of work. The idea that if people could just believe they would somehow earn their salvation by works and God would owe them. So to get around that misunderstanding of scripture, they invent this idea that God must subconsciously make them believe against their will by overwhelming force. However, salvation is by faith, which is separate from the works of the law. Therefore, people may believe and God will show them mercy.

knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Galatians 2:16

We are not justified by the works of the law, but by faith. Pretty simple. Faith and the law are two different things. The law doesn't require faith in Jesus Christ.

The contrast in Gal. 2:16 is not being justified by the works of the law, but being justified by faith instead. Which is different than the law or Scripture wouldn't differentiate between the two. So you could believe and it not do you any good as far as being saved, if it were not for God then having mercy on you and placing you in Christ. It is not deserving of salvation, as if God had to repay you. God doesn't repay a new believer in Christ, He then shows them mercy out of love for the sinner.

Galatians 2:16

See the contrast? If faith were of the law, you could never be saved because "by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified." Believers are justified by faith in Christ, which isn't in the law.

Not everyone is saved because not everyone is in Christ.

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
Romans 8:9 NKJV

Jesus died and was raised again because He never sinned. It's not like Jesus died and paid off your individual sins and another "elect's" sins, etc on the cross. When a sinner believes, they are placed in Christ through the Holy Spirit and that is what saves them. It's all about being in Christ. In Christ a believer becomes justified, righteous, born again, sanctified, adopted, etc.

If it is applied at a later date, for instance 2000 years later, it isn't finished or once for all! What I am saying is Jesus really died once for all sinners and the work is finished. As opposed to your unfinished idea. Jesus didn't receive the wrath of God, as some kind of sinner, because He never was a sinner.
If He had sinned, Jesus would have stayed dead in the grave and nobody would be saved.

Jesus secured salvation for the world through His death and Resurrection. How that is applied to believers is through baptism of the Holy Spirit. At faith, one is clothed with Christ and is made righteous, even as He is Righteous. The work of salvation was already completed by Him, but we must be in Christ to receive it. If on the other hand Jesus paid for our sins individually at the cross, through suffering God's wrath for us somehow, then completion of that would mean people were saved at that time. Before birth in most cases and prior to faith, which is unbiblical. We are not faithful by salvation. One is saved by faith or through faith. Faith was not a requirement of the law for salvation. It is outside of salvation.

The atonement is for sinners in need of forgiveness.

Why would Jesus bare the wrath of God? Jesus is the Righteous One! He didn't sin!

If Jesus really bore the wrath of God for the frozen chosen... I mean elect, then they would have all been saved at that moment. That means most of the elect would have been saved prior to even being born. That's what once for all means. It's done all at once. So people would be saved prior to believing, which isn't biblical!

Not meaning to accuse you falsely. However, when you said:

"You need to think these things through (if you haven't already) if you're saying, " it was a one time sacrifice for all people." The logical conclusion is universalism."

It seems like you have a problem with a one time sacrifice for all sin because it would be Universalism. Maybe I misunderstood and you don't really object to a Jesus's death being a one time sacrifice for all people. Sorry.

What do you think Jesus meant by saying, "It is finished!"? I'm not trying to twist any scripture there. Maybe, I don't understand it correctly and you can help me.

If God put in a warning for novices, I think it is important to take heed of.

If your beliefs don't line up with God's Word, the problem isn't me. Whether I quote 2 verses or more. Kev:

not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
I Timothy 3:6‭-‬7

Try not to become that guy, as you are still a novice in the faith.

Our faith is of no meritorious value unto salvation. It does not please God, as far as a work of salvation. God rejoices when people believe and are saved, but that is after or at faith.

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Romans 8:9‭-‬10

If one does not have the Spirit they are still in the flesh, unpleasing to God. Yet, He loves sinners and sent His Son to die for our sins.

I said maybe you didn't think that, but I don't understand what else you could believe. If everyone's sins are there not atoned for at the same time, it seems like there would have to be separate atonements each time someone new is saved, according to Calvinism. Whereas, Scripture teaches Jesus died one time for all people.

God does not change. However, we are now under grace, as opposed to the Mosaic Law. Gentiles used to be shut out and now have been grafted in. Jesus was still in O. T. times and in addition to that, some Pharisees later became followers of Christ. Same with James the brother of Jesus. So say Jesus hated them because He still loved them enough to die on the cross for their sins!

Jesus absolutely died for the Anti-Christ, but he won't believe. The natural person can do nothing to add to salvation or please God.

I guess the simple answer to a lot of the objections to God's love is to point out that the few verses on God hating the wicked were in the Old Testament. Since then, repentance has been granted to Gentiles. Also, hate compared to what? Compared to the love He showed for the descendants of Isaac according to the flesh, God hated everyone else. Even then, it was so that through Israel, the whole world could be saved if they believe.

I said it "seems" like it. Maybe you don't. Yet, you protest because I have said that Jesus' death was a one time sacrifice for all people. As if, when someone believes, they have to have their sins paid for again. When the sins have been atoned for already in Christ. Whoever has the Son is saved.

Where I get that the work of salvation is finished and we can't add to it?

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
John 19:30

The work is finished.

For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
Hebrews 7:26‭-‬27

Jesus offered up Himself once for all people.

Adriel...

God still loves the world enough to send His Son to die on the cross for their sins and it was a one time sacrifice for all people.

Just wanted to point out my typo.

God's love is not limited to who we say He can love. He loves all people and wants them all to believe.
