Chosen before the foundation of the world. There are those who teach and believe that God has chosen certain people to be saved and certain people to be lost. This teaching is sometimes called Calvinism, or Reformed Theology. In this live, two-hour KJV bible study program, we look at the bible doctrines of election, predestination and grace, rightly divided and in their proper context. Please join our interactive chat room where we take your questions and answer them live on-air!
With your radio host and bible teacher, Geoffrey Grider of Now The End Begins.
"Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?" Romans 9:21 (KJV)
Predestination and election You know, there are many many pastors and ministers today that think to do Christianity a great favor by speaking down the doctrine of free sovereign grace. They speak evil things both of Calvin and Calvinism,simply because they are ignorant of that God glorifying and flesh withering truth. Little do they know that the arminian system that they embrace is riddled with contradictions, absurdities and falsehoods.
How true "the carnal mind is enmity against God (and His law): for it is not subject to the law of God,neither indeed can be.
Great Sermon! I think you are misrepresenting the calvanist or reformed doctrine of election, it's easy to have a one sided debate because it's easy to misrepresent the other view, which you are doing.

Election Until someone can explain to me why some come to Christ and most reject, I will stand firm in sovereign grace. Because, we are all born of Adam, with a fallen nature. We are born in the flesh and while we are in the flesh the mind has a hate for God, Rom 8:7. So, the question is how do we come out of the flesh and into the spirit? This is what Chapter is all about being in the spirit, not in the flesh. It all comes down to this one simple question? If ALL are the same, what makes one differ to another? If some are different and able(power) to discern between the flesh and the spirit, then that person has something to boast about. Dont give me a bunch of verses taken of context, I've heard and read them all. I am sure you have too. Just give me a simple answer why some can chose and most cannot and will not. Because, I can give you a simple answer to my point, Sovereign Grace.
