There's that term again..."hyper-Calvinist." topcat54 in particlar is most assuredly NOT a hyper-Calvinist...unless there are espresso shots involved ;)
Really, if you're gonna insult us, at least try to be accurate :D
How do I know who fits and doesn’t fit in the Calvinist ball park???
That’s a mysterious, nebulous, mystical, convoluted rabbit hole I don’t claim much understanding of! LOL.
insult you? Not really. That was a mild tweak.
I suppose I could get into heavy duty insulting but I love too many of you too much to be able to put much heart into that.
Now insulting your perspectives . . . that’s a different matter! LOL.
Thanks for your kind reply. I’ll take it under advisement.
BTW, as far as I can tell, double shots of expresso are routine in some such quarters . . . judging by the fierce instant responses, knee-jerk slap downs of standard plain Biblical truths.
even if I do make inferences about folks hereon . . .
they are inferences about
THEIR PRESENTATION OF THEIR NEW PERSONA’S HEREON!
Who knows what that has to do with reality! LOL.
And in terms of insults . . . some folks in the Calvinist camp are way ahead of where I’d ever be able to catch up if I lived to be 500 years old! LOL.
You can't expect someone with a theology that has the spiritual nutritional value of a Pixy Stix to understand the difference.
First off..Jesus coming like a *Thief in the Night* is not the second coming, if that were the case...Most of the world would be destroyed..How many people still deny Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the World?
Most of the Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, even many so called christians..
According to you Jesus Christ is only going to be concerned with his true flock and to hell with the rest.
The Purpose of Jesus Christ removing his church is to give people another chance to be reconciled to GOD, even if you deny the rapture from scripture a Loving GOD would never ever just destroy people because, they have not had the opportunity to hear the Gospel, been denied the opportunity to accept the Gospel or destroy almost all of the Jews who are his Chosen People, because they still do not understand the Gospel.
