The Bible has been interpreted in different ways on this issue. A Calvinist perspective may be particularly inclined to take passages such as 2 Samuel 7:11-16: ...“‘The Lord declares to you that the Lord himself will establish a house for you: 12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your ...

In God's promise to David, Solomon's father, He says, The Lord declares to you that the Lord himself will establish a house for you: 12When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and ...

Read Hebrews 11. It describes in detail the faith of many of the prophets of old. We are all saved by faith. 13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them 16 Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them. God saves men accord to the light ...

We are saved by grace through faith. Judgment is used to determine or show that we have or have not saving faith. James says in James 2:18 that I will show you my faith by my works. There is no contradiction between Paul and James. In Romans 2:6 Paul says who (God) will render to each one according to his deeds. Judgment will determine if you have a living ...

Your words: "Its like he tells us it's impossible to obey the law because we are sinners through and through. Therefore put faith in Christ who died for those sins and love one another. But then, he says don't sin, or you won't inherit the kingdom of God. I'm confused." Your implied either/or, above, needs to become a both/and, since both statements ...

Galatians is an interesting letter. Jesus warned his disciples about the "leaven" of the Pharisees. This letter is written to Christians who are just starting to go down this road. Christians who work hard to not sin are in danger of the same sort of spiritual blindness that the Pharisees had due to self-righteousness. The question should not be "do we do ...

Yes she can You're probably getting tripped up by this passage: 1 Timothy 2:13-15 ESV For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. Which, by itself and read without any ...

From "http://www.theopedia.com/Predestination" and from what I have read elsewhere, the person's eternal destination is not based on what he does or knows, but on how God has predestined him. The same is true for babies that die. It is "not such anyone would boast." That's my understanding of what Reformed would think. PS Change "innocent" to "those who ...

This answer will of necessity be quite long since much explanation and a lot of Scripture is necessary to show how many have come to their conclusion that Jesus' life on earth, and his death, burial, and resurrection involve God in a conspiracy to plan to give salvation to as many as would accept God's great grace. My answer assumes that God is a trinity. ...

God chose Abraham and made him blameless. Gen 17-1 . Before Jesus came the People of the old testament were more intimate with God , Jesus was sacrificed as an atonement for the world's sins, not just for God's chosen people. Sins in the old testament were covered by the blood of bulls and goats. Jesus's blood covers today's sin. God saved Abraham by making ...

No. If you die before the rapture and are in hell, you don't get a second chance. Like once your in heaven you don't get a second chance (like anybody would want a second chance in heaven). After the rapture, all the non-believers will be left on earth. Some will confert, others will still turn from him. They He will come a second time, and cast all the ...
