    I like your website and old fashioned style, but I disagree with your premise about sovereignty which is against the human will. Free will is a basic human quality and there are few social or bible conditions which interfere with it. Conditions are a means of works, not grace. In the new testament, we are not under law or conditions, we are under grace. Grace means no conditions. Free will is part of the human nature which God has allowed us.
Thanks for listening to my feedback.

    Bob,
You say sovereignty is against human will and I agree! Which means that if we believe in a sovereign God, we cannot also believe in man's sovereign will, else God's will is not sovereign. God can't be supreme ruler and also be "subject" to man's own rule or will. It's a contradiction of terms. We cannot be born of God by our own free will, and also by any sovereign will of God. It's one or the other, even as God's word itself attests:

John1:11-12
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God
."

Free will has "not" been a basic human quality since the fall, and the Christian doctrine is that humans are either in bondage to the spirit of evil (Hebrews 2:14-15) or are a bondservant [doulos] or slave to the Spirit of Christ (1 Corinthians 7:22; Ephesians 6:6). The doctrine of Christians being set free from bondage of sin by grace does not mean that they came to Christ by their own free will, but that the Lord by His sovereign will, came to them. It is indeed true that "we are not under law or conditions, we are under grace" in terms of our salvation, however there is no such law of "man's free will to come to Christ (John 6:44), there is but the God ordained privilege to ask. And when we ask in true and earnest desire, you can be sure that it is God who was drawing us to do so. God is not sitting in the heavens, wringing his hands, hoping that some might per chance come to Him. For He knows that none will (Romans 3:11-12), and so by His own arm, His own sovereign good will and pleasure, He chooses to draw some unto salvation. To be sure, Sovereignty of God [b]is[/b] against Free Will, because free will takes away God's sovereign choice and leaves it up to the will of man. This is a direct contradiction to John1:11-12 which says salvation is decidedly "not" by the will of man, but God.

Sincerely,
Tony Warren

    I enjoy this website tremendously, but I do have one thing that I do not agree with. In your statement of faith as well as your article entitled "what must I do to become saved," I have not found water baptism there as a requirement. The bible says that baptism is required and so I believe that should be included.

    Same sex marriage is clearly found to be a sin in the Bible. Does God tell us to change with the times - or stay steadfast? Many sins - for example - sins of the mind - do not 'hurt' another, but that does not mean that they are not sins. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God - but when we try to logically explain our sin - we are only fooling ourself - and that is not of God.

What did Christ say about the end times and the signs of his coming? Jesus asked, "when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8." These are very troubling times. It's good to know that there are still a few beacons of light among the forces of degeneration. We live in very difficult times, God bless those who hold up the banner of truth.

Thanks Soooooo much

    The articles here are outstanding. Homosexuality, free will, roman catholicism, abortion and divorce are not non-essential issues. I don't know what some people call non essential, but our definitions are obviously different. I am glad that there are "a few" that take the narrow road and stay away from the much traveled wide road. It's not divisive because you cannot divide what has never been joined.

Matthew 7:21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

We can't condone homosexuality and call ourselves Christian. I don't care what anyone says.

    I am saddened by your conservative positions. Our Church was founded by believers who sought to make the world a better place, and we have to deal with fundamentalists like yourself who want to drag it back to the middle ages. There is to much division within the church and Christianity as a whole over non-essential issues. When we turn on ourselves over things like free will and divorce, a lost world drifts further from our influence and the enemy rejoices. I pray we may put aside our differences and work together to bring the GOOD News to a dying world.

 
Reply:
    We have differing opinions of exactly what is non-essential. Actually, the enemy rejoices when we turn on ourselves in capitulation and compromise of things like orthodoxy, homosexuality, divorce, immorality and free will. Indeed it is the church itself that drifts further from the influence of Christ, not a lost world. Compromise is the adversary, not orthodoxy and faithfulness to scripture.

Sincerely,
Tony Warren

    Listen guys, here's my feedback. The doctrines you teach, like the Trinity, Predestination and Once saved always saved, is not in the Bible. Yes, it is in your Westminister Confession but that is not the Bible and carries no divine weight. And if these doctrines were true, then why are they not explicitly stated in the Bible? The Westminister Confession is merely a document that reformed Christians choose to embrace, but other parts of "Christianity" surely reject. If any of those doctrines you preach were explicitly stated in the Bible, they'd be canon. Perhaps that's why they're not in the Bible.

    The Supreme court made another attack on Christians with its ruling. First off, homosexual relationships and deals are not marriages. Marriage has been defined since the world began as a union between a man and a woman. Homosexual marriage simply does not fit the minimum conditions necessary for a marriage to exist. It's not the definition of the union between a man and a woman that has existed from the beginning, so it cannot be a natural marriage. As God said in His word, it is unnatural. Doesn't even nature tell us this as the so called gay marriage cannot produce children. Beside all this, we know that these homosexual relationships are harmful to society, go against religious beliefs and do not provide the same benefits to the family as heterosexual marriages. No matter what the liberals claim, gay marriage cannot be a good thing, and it is just the beginning of taking away religious freedoms in this country.

Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

God Bless this site for continuing to tell the truth of what scripture says.

I wish to express a dissenting opinion to the opinions expressed here about same sex marriage. The sensible reply to these accusations is to ask you to show us how same-sex marriage is wrong. While you oppose it on religious grounds, it is clear many other Christians do not, and believe your stance is in error. Let's sort out the morality of same-sex marriage logically, because it cannot be immoral since it hurts no one. The obvious truth is that legalizing same-sex marriage does not inflict any meaningful involuntary harm. Therefore, it cannot be harmful, immoral or unlawful. People have to change with the times, and that includes backward Christians.
