What a merciful God and full of compassion. He chooses his small group and allows the rest to be damned. How could anyone say he is not just?
You need to understand what the "firstfruits" are.
You can sugar-coat the teaching if you like. I've had formal training in Christian doctrine and I'm no stranger to Calvinism. Predestination to salvation/damnation is offensive to the conscience (unless you have rationalized it away).
Formal training in Christian doctrine from who? Traditional Christianity? That's why you are confused.
What you said is true, but God calls everyone.
flpalmero, do you have special knowledge that is hidden from everyone else? I remember a group like that mentioned in Revelation...the Nicolatians I believe?
Robert the Bruce - were you offended? Why is it so hard to believe the Bible?
Because I believe things that have evidence. Objective evidence. An experience that someone has in their heart doesn't constitute evidence.
that is not what scripture says, it says God desires that all men come to a saving relationship with Him
flpalermo, I have researched the origins of the Bible and Christianity because I care deeply about the truth. If you were honest in research, you would find the same things as I did.
And it will become better.
No matter what happens to you in your life, smile & be positive with everyone you see..Have a chat with everyone you can, & always stay positive..That alone will change a persons life for the better, & it can happen over a matter of weeks
