Calvin himself: “To sum up, since God’s will is said to be the cause of all things, I have made his providence the determinative principle for all human plans and works… Reason cannot comprehend God’s ways and so humility is central. But his approach was not so much through power but through holiness and God’s relationship with humans, a relationship noted by love.And that shaped his view of sovereignty so that human will is not excluded. (Thorsen discusses semi-Pelagianism and semi-Augustinianism, found in Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican thinking.) That is, God’s sovereignty is not diminished by empowering humans with freedom.As soon as we have reached any certainty I will let you know. This match does not please Perrin, because he wishes to force upon you the daughter of Rameau.That makes me the more solicitous about pre-occupying the ground in good time, lest we be obstructed by having to make excuses.
Wesleyanism is ACURA: all are sinful, conditional election, unlimited atonement, resistible grace, and assurance of salvation.
Denominations can be a great thing and they can be a bad thing when they begin to disassociate with the rest of the world and withdraw - unlike Jesus himself who never spoke of denominations and who's main ambition was to enage and accept others.
Like people, churches are all different and individual and have different ways of showing their appreciation and love for God, for what he has done:) 101Christian Networks is a non-denominational site and service for Christian singles.
When anyone considers their denomination to be the 'only true way' consider for a moment that most people on the planet won't even get a chance to hear your particular doctrine or creed.
Many die before they have the chance - others are led in wrong dirrections.
