The importance of understanding the unlimited atonement in the angelic conflict.

Sunday, December 1, 2002

The importance of understanding the existence of free will in the human race.

One of the false teachings that have been perpetuated by the kingdom of darkness in the angelic conflict is that man does not have a free will or a choice.

Calvinists - hyper-Calvinists. They teach that man cannot choose God or the plan of God and therefore God must choose Him.

Many Calvinists hold to the doctrine of double predestination which is heresy and an attack upon the justice of God.

1CO 2:7 but we speak Gods wisdom in a mystery, the hidden {wisdom,} which God predestined before the ages to our glory;

EPH 1:5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,

EPH 1:11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will,

PSA 51:5 “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.”

PSA 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth.

ROM 5:12 “Through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned when Adam sinned”

1CO 15:22 in Adam all die

EPH 2:3 - we were by nature children of wrath,

Every member of the human race since then has been born into sin without their consent, so if God sent them to hell because they were born sinners, He would be unjust in doing so.

Everyone has the opportunity to make a decision to be saved, and if they do not have the opportunity then they are safe.

All children who die before the age of accountability, mentally speaking, go to heaven and are given eternal life,2SA 12:23.

All retarded people who have been mentally incapable of making a decision to believe on TLJC as their Lord and Savior will go to heaven, JON 4:11.

ROM 5:6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

ROM 11:15 - God reconciled the world unto Himself.

2CO 5:19 God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them

1JO 4:14 And we have beheld and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

1TI 2:4 He desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

1TI 2:6 He gave Himself as a ransom for all,

1TI 4:10 - He is called the Savior of all men, especially of believers.

HEB 2:9 - TLJC tasted death for everyone.

1JO 2:2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

“He who believes in Him” - to believe - pres-act-part - pisteuon = in the active voice it means that mankind makes his own willful decision to believe in TLJC.

“Has not believed” - perf-act-ind - pepisteuken = in the active voice it means that he has refused to believe in Jesus Christ!

2PE 3:9 “The Lord is not willing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”

Chosen - aor-mid-ind - exelexasthe = the middle voice tells us that God did not choose us based upon His volition only but also based upon our response to His initiation.
