I gave this four stars, because I agree with 4/5 of it.

After reading more about this, the only thing I don't agree with Calvinism (at least, majorly) is: they believe Christ did not die for all. Only the elect. The elect being the 'Chosen'.

"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

But there are also these:
"For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." (Matt. 26:28)

"I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine." (John 17:9)

Robbie Just wait until you finish Veritas. You'll agree with 6/5's of it then


Rachel yeah.... probably.


Hilda Weren't we given a pretty good clue on the very night of Christ's birth that He came for a specific purpose?

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
NIV
(The dear KJV is almost alone in omitting the limiting last words.)
