Total Depravity vs Free Will: Questions For Calvinists – Part 2

Many of you may be wondering why I am touching such a controversial and painful issue within Christianity.

I do not deny the fact that this topic has been debated for hundreds of years, by learned scholars who devoted their entire lives to either defending Calvinism or arguing against it.

So, is my intent to stir up more debate and create more division?

Questions for Calvinists – Part 1

Disclaimer: this post is not meant to put any believer down for his/her interpretation of the Bible.

Above all, may God’s name be glorified!

“United We Stand, Divided We Fall”

I look at the divided America and it makes me sad.

Ironically, many Christian believers today are more concerned with defending their political beliefs and belittling those who disagree with them than with being the light in the darkness.

“We won!” they scream. “Get over it!” they add, addressing their social media posts to those “libtards.”

All the while, pushing, no, kicking, those who need Jesus even further away…

2017 – A Year Of Renewed Purpose

I must have written at least 10 different starting paragraphs for this blog post.

Each sentence was carefully thought out.

Each sentence lost its importance as soon as it made its way onto the screen.

There is some significance to me disclosing to you the painstaking process of writing this particular post, so, please, bear with me…
