Adam blamed Eve.

Eve blamed the snake.

The snake does not have a leg to stand on.

Happy Sunday folks.
Ooooooh, so you think I'm talking about an enlightenment which comes from a source other than the Holy Spirit. But in this you are in grievous error, which is not unusual for a Frenchie Flag Flying FlowerPotMan.

However! Good to see you back Faithlicist.

Now as to your reply to my post, I must say I'm very disappointed with you, as you ignored completely what I said.

It's enough to make a grown man cry.

However, with your spiritual wellbeing in mind, I will continue to inform you as to my opinion concerning enlightenment before justification, which I can easily prove from the scripture.

Have a happy Lord's Day, and may the Lord bless your brain (faculty) immensely.

How do you manage

Ha!! I thought that post would wake you lot up.

I've been away for a week and you go back to your old ways of trying to save yourselves.
What am I going to do with you?

Now remember when the sinner is in his natural estate before being called inwardly, he is about as much use to truth and salvation as a plastic duck can drive a double decker bus.
Because the Bible says so.

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;"

See - NO works required!!

8 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast."

See - Faith is the GIFT of God!!

13 "We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak"

Faith therefore is a gift and work wrought in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.

Aaahh it's good to be back. Time for some real TULIP Calvinism around here.

Happy Sunday folks.

John, Mike, Biblicist
How many times must we teach you that salvation by self does not work.
The Holy Spirit is the one who guides the sinner into all truth - NOT the sinner himself.
Your statement above denies the need of the Holy Spirit.
The sinner, when in his natural estate, cannot spiritually discern the Word of God as Scripture teaches.
This Arminian teaching of yours is based on the same premise as papistry. Again you underestimate the power of sin.
"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." 1Cor 2:14
How do you manage to get so confused, Faithlicist? You need reforming.

Keep an open mind, my friend. Open, that is, to the Bible's teaching, instead of allowing yourself to be browbeaten into submission to men.

I believe in 'every member ministry'. Don't you? No you don't!

I know what you are saying Mike, but can you see the problem that the calvinist has?

If the difference is down to how the individuals process the enlightenment that they receive, then one of them must have a better thinking capacity, or maybe developed a better receptivity or some such thing, and this qualitative difference achieved by them is their contribution to arriving at faith!! Any such contribution is then considered to be a work.

For them the bottom line is:

If God is not the one making the difference, then you are, and hence you are contributing to your own salvation.

Good post Mike
I guess a calvinist would not be happy with the answer you gave because it does not explain why some believe and others do not. To them if the difference cannot be tracked back to God, then salvation becomes works based.
How would you answer their concern?

When he rejects the light that is made manifest in him, it does not show that he is unable to do otherwise, but that he is unwilling, thus without excuse.
You are right in that enlightenment is before the new birth.

God does not lie, and therefore that they did die should not be doubted by any Bible believing Christian.
They started to die physically and there was also spiritual death. But the issue to my mind is really what is it to die spiritually?
Those who see man as tri-partite say that the spirit within man died. Although most reformed folk do not agree with the tri-partite view, they nevertheless come to the same conclusion. And so spiritual death to them means the same as physical death. What the body cannot do as a result of death must now by analogy be transferred to man in the spiritual realm. All spiritual activity therefore should cease.
When one points to men and women "dead" in sins and tresspasses who still seek the spiritual, they can produce no good answer, but will resort to all sorts of philosophical nonsense, with quotes from their favorite authors, but with no biblical support.
For my take on this, refer to Is. 59:2.
Oh I see.....I think.

Lurker my dear ol' thing

You've been reading too many novels.

You reckon only part of the world was cursed? Man if I believed that, I'd be searching for the safe spot and live there forever.

Oh and the first commandment was not a warning but a simple declaration of fact (a commandment). Sin is "trangression of the law" according to the New Testament, so you tell me what law Adam transgressed that brought in sin and death to the human race.

Say, Lurker, are you okay? Still Baptist? Still sane? Your posts of late have been most mystical and enigmatic - not like you at all.

The wages of sin is indeed death. That said, if death always comes immediately upon sin then Paul's discourse in Romans 7 cannot be reconciled with your following statement: "Adam died the moment he disobeyed God!" or with the prophets for the "chief of sinners" was alive without the law until the commandment (law) came. My post was mostly scripture which I find relevant to the subject matter. I don't find biblical phrases like "ministration of death" and "death reigned" and the day Paul's transgressions were repaid (Deut 32:35)cryptic.
The sentence of death by God is death. Just because the sentence is not carried out for a while does not make it any the less "death".

Also, the word "death" does not carry a single uniform meaning in the Scriptures, which is what I think you are trying to impose on those passages you quoted.

Of the references you gave Romans 5 refers to physical death, Romans 7 refers to a moral death in the consciousness of Paul, and the reference to the "ministration of death" points to the legal dispensation, declaring that the keeping of the Law could not produce life!

So what may appear plain to you is not to me. Merely quoting scripture does not make it any plainer!

The Lord bless you too, Lurker.

Now this text says:

For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Romans 5:13 KJV

But surely Adam had a law? "Thou shalt not eat...." Plus the basis for the later law was established at creation. So I really cannot see what you're saying. Did you agree with our conclusions? Or are you countering them?

If you missed the very first post, I was asking what 'die' meant in this very commandment:

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Genesis 2:16-17 KJV
