  • Re: OT: The Reformed View of the Ordo Salutis

    [quote user="Blair Laird"] [quote user="Bryan Brodess"]As far as the calvan issue. I can only think that since calvins version of total depravity deems the only way we can come to God is for god to chose us, thus allow us to have faith in his son.. you could interpret regeneration preceding faith.. for unles christ regenerated you, you would never believe

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] [quote user="Mark"]This is no small difference. To elevate the Magisterium to the level of the Bible, will produce doctrines that contradict or add to the Bible[/quote] I agree it is a significant difference - see the second post. However, the Church preceded the Bible, determined its canon, preserved it ... As a matter of dogma

Baptismo and its derivitives coould also be taken.. as many interpretations to do and fall with even classical greek interpretations.. it is just water..so every time many see the word baptise, they automatically assume water.. why? because many interpret

I am talking about passages like 1 cor 12 ( baptised into the body) or romans 6 (baptised into death and burial) were I do not believe any water in in reference. I believe it tells us exactly what we are immersed into.. the bodym

  • Re: OT: The Reformed View of the Ordo Salutis

    [quote user="Ted Hans"] [quote user="Bryan Brodess"] Anyway with this perspective I do agree.. one must have their mind opened by God in order to have faith.. However, I believe this can only happen when we are opened to listen to truth and seek out truth.. which still takes a willingness on our part.. Do I make sense? I do not want to confuse anyone

    [quote user="JimVanSchoonhoven"] MJ Smith, I believe if you start reading in Romans 3 and read to the end of Romans 4, you will see that Paul is demonstrating to the Jews that the salvation of the Gentiles without the law, was not something new, and he is pointing out to them that salvation was never dependant on the law, but rather the law was only
