I came to Christ ironically through who I believe now to be a false teacher. I was wrapped up in ultra-dispensationalism, the end of the world, the pre-trib rapture.... you name it. After some crucial sanctifying works of God, I came to study the Reformation, by which many truths came to light for me. I have had some very good times with God and some very bad times as well, by this I mean loss of faith or simply sin. He has never let me go however. The TULIP theory of reformed theology rang true for me and my understanding of God's truth. I am one person though that believes strongly in the "P" standing for PRESERVATION not PREDESTINATION. I am living proof of this doctrine. The 2 words can actually co-exist in their intent, as I know under the mystery of God that somehow we ARE predestined, but are also sustained. In short, God has used your website to bring me back to Him. He has preserved me through your obedience to the One who TRULY was obedient. God's grace

I was on the internet looking for a biblical definition of Covenant, I stumble upon your website, so it would seem. Your definition was scriptual,and very understandable. I continued to view your website and became intrigued with your adherence and revelation of God's word. I read your statement of faith and had a question about The Church, "We believe in the external, corporate or local Church, wherein the elect may be found among those who may profess Christ, but may not truly be elect. God only knows. It is this external, local or corporate body that Christ warned of the consequences of unfaithfulness and apostasy (Revelations chapters 2-3). Christ has given spiritual gifts to those in the local Churches, some blessed to be prophets, some evangelists, some teachers, and some deacons and ministers. Each in his own right is equipped of God to edify the Church that it might grow in grace".
Does this mean you believe Eph. 4:11-16 as listed? i.e apostles and pastors.

I learned a lot from the points you made, but it was very hard to get through such an acrid, abrasive introductory paragraph. Maybe a study on "pharasee-ism" next?

Just a thank you for the article on eunuchs. Our house church is currently studying Matthew and it seems that every commentary I have found jumps over the eunuch statement straight to let the kids come unto me.
I was greatly relieved to read your article and have printed it off for anyone else who would like to read it.
I don't know if you are aware of the split that happened in the Uniting church in Australia four years ago, (and still going now), but there are a few wounded Christians in our church who love Jesus and found themselves at odds with modern sloppy theology and greasy grace. Your input will help their Christian walk.
I have bookmarked your homepage for I am sure to be back.
God bless you for your service to us all...

Tony Warren, I just wanted you to know I was greatly edified by your article concerning Paul's thorn in the flesh. I shared the information with my church. I don't know how many in my congregation agree with your article.

Name: Micheal Lawrence
I do agree with your assessment of the carnal Christian. Form what I have experienced, Christians are Christians, born of the spirit, dead to the world and alive to God in Christ, at the same time I see 1. the world. 2 the called, the fruit of the vine not yet grafted into the true vine, raised up to testify of the risen Christ and 3. the elect, Christians, harvested out of the vine, which is humanity, and grafted into the living vine, the Kingdom of Heaven,Jesus Christ, by the will and grace of God alone. would appreciate your feedback if possible Blessings M

Subject: Free will
Name: J. Shramek
Do humans have any free will? Does a parent punish a child when the child does what you tell them to? Only a sick, deranged parent. If God "makes" someone unrepentant, He cannot hold the person accountable for the decision He made for them. Our God is a just God and he cannot step outside of who He is.
I do believe in God's sovereignty. The Bible is clear that God sees all things at once and He knows how each person is going to respond to his calls. (Thing Pharaoh) He will therefore use their life accordingly. But punishing us for what we have no control over is ridiculous.

Subject: Free Will
To understand "free will" you have to define it with the Word of God. The scriptures are profitable for correction and instruction in righteousness and truth. Scriptures say that man was born in iniquity, that his heart is continually evil and that he is in bondage and a slave to sin. To understand these scriptures and their discriptive totality of mans spiritual and physical state in the world, then you can define "free will" Men have anything but a free will, because scriptures speak of a will tainted by one's own heart, by one's blindness and servitude to sin and the flesh. How can we attribute free will to men when his every thought is tainted by his evil condition. Man is better understood to have a "Slave will". May the Lord give his saints understanding

While I believe in divine predestination, it is important to understand that humans have a free will. A free will can not save a person, but for a person to be saved they must willingly recieve CHRIST. For a person to remain lost, they must willingly refuse CHRIST. GOD did not create humans incapable of choosing. We do well to realize the Sovernty of GOD. We would also do well to understand how he rules. He freely offers all humans Life in JESUS. But those who refuse JESUS are lost by their choice. GOD gives them what they chose.
