Looks like I misposted a reblog again to my travel site..
Here is the link.
Reblogged this on Just Walking Together and commented:
Timing is everything. I read that Scientology had a commercial in the Super Bowl. Luckily I missed it. Of course what is from within the visible church is even more concerning. And unfortunately your message here will not be read or understood as true by many. About 375 years ago, the old Westminster Large Catechism described it like this:
Q. 13. What hath God especially decreed concerning angels and men?
A. God, by an eternal and immutable decree, out of his mere love, for the praise of his glorious grace, to be manifested in due time, hath elected some angels to glory; and in Christ hath chosen some men to eternal life, and the means thereof: and also, according to his sovereign power, and the unsearchable counsel of his own will (whereby he extendeth or withholdeth favor as he pleaseth), hath passed by and foreordained the rest to dishonor and wrath, to be for their sin inflicted, to the praise of the glory of his justice.
Btw, Mike’s last point about our assurance was confirmed a few verses earlier in John 6.
Joh 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
