Free Will Cannot Save Us

Free will is like the law of Moses. It has no power to save us. It is weak, because it is of man. The law was external to man. Free will is of man. Only the power of God, the gospel coupled with the working of the Spirit of God, can bring the unbeliever to Christ. We have lost souls, like Billy Graham and the so called early church father, Origin, believing in the power of free will. That of course, is an absurd teaching. We have Augustine and the Protestants rejecting free will, but believing in the power of the Law of Moses. There was a falling away, after the Apostles, and Paul said there would be. (2 Thess 2:3)  Both those who taught free will and most who taught predestination but with perversions to it, were lost. A few people were saved during the time between the falling away and the end of the times of the Gentiles. Of course, the First London Baptist Confession of Faith and the appendix were biblical in their interpretations. It rejected the Law of Moses and the free w

How Old Is the World?

I have no idea exactly how old the world is. There are a few rules we can apply. It is likely that it is both young and old. Did God wait millions of years for the stars to all be seen? Did he wait all that time for their light to reach everywhere? That is not likely. Or did God create the world with age? Is it somehow aged? That is likely. But I think it makes sense that God created the universe with age. I am not even going to comment on the Genesis account except to say that the world was created in the beginning. Gen 1.  I believe it could be a little older than 6 thousand years. But really, that is just a guess. It could be much older. What time span does "in the beginning" cover?  1.In the beginning ( A )  God created ( B )  the heavens ( C )  and the earth. ( D )   2.  Now the earth was formless ( E )  and empty, ( F )  darkness was over the surface of the deep, ( G )  and the Spirit of God ( H )  was hovering ( I )  over the waters. How long did "in the be

J. Rodman Williams Was a Fraud

J. Rodman Williams was a fraud. He and all the Presbyterian "renewal movement" charismatic liars that congregated at the Melodyland School of Theology were lost. No, they did not go home to be with the Lord. Most Charismatics taught free will. William's taught Predestination but objected to double predestination. This doctrine opposing double predestination is silly, because, clearly, Romans 9 speaks to double predestination. Fancy vessels are created to be kept, and vessels created for menial use are not saved. Creation for menial use is a predetermined act by God. But God actively regenerates the elect. He does not do anything to those who are lost. They are born and stay separated from God from first breath to last. But really, all things are predetermined by God but he does not create sin in man. And certainly, Christian's can have heavy hearts over predestination and family and friends not being included. But I digress. As far as speaking to just one o

The End of the World

The end of the world is upon us. No one knows that time or date. Matthew 24: 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.  36 No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.    37 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man.  38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark  39 And they were oblivious, until the flood came and swept them all away. So will it be at the coming of the Son of Man... God has shown me that I will be on the earth, living, when Christ returns. Again, not knowing when that Day of Christ's return is. But we do know this, a day is to God like a 1000 years according to 2 Peter chapter 3: 3  Above all, you must understand that in the last days  scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.   4  They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ h
