  • SOURCE OF DIVISION
  • Analyses like SOURCE OF DIVISION these gives rise to factions in the Body!Some claim salvation mustbe “universal” (after all,God IS love, you know!Who can resist His love inthe end?)Some say it’s up to US tochoose JESUS: we use ourFREE WILL to decide foror against salvation! GodOK’s our choice.
  • NOT EVERYBODY GETS SAVED
  • “Universalism” just NOT EVERYBODY GETS doesn’t make SAVED Biblical sense!“Universalism” can’t beright-the Bible teaches usabout sinners spendingeternity in hell .Those God sends to hellhave refused His love,refused His Lordship.
  • SALVATION NEEDS MORE THAN OUR ‘FREE WILL’
  • SALVATION NEEDS MORE God chooses us! Salvation is a THAN OUR ‘FREE WILL’ process of election–God’s election of us!“But a natural man does notaccept the things of the Spirit ofGod, for they are foolishness tohim; and he cannot understandthem, because they are spirituallyappraised.” (I Cor 2:14)You did not choose Me but I choseyou, and appointed you that youwould go and bear fruit . . . (Jesusto disciples in John 15:16). . . and the Lord was adding totheir number day by day those whowere being saved (Acts 2:46
  • SOME KEY REFERENCES
  • SOMEyou’re curious, If KEY REFERENCES here are some places to begin your study!Parable of Sower and Seedin Matthew 13: Lays outhow differently people canrespond to the gospel.ALL of I John: Look at thewords “if” and “know”-Johnuses them to teach howreal believers act and whatthey can and should know.

  • PREDESTINATION the seemingly Jesus covers VS FREE WILL varied experiences of these disciples IN A NUTSHELL! with the claim that HE CHOSE THEM ALL! Go figure!PREDESTINATION?

  • FREE WILL VS PREDESTINATION: CONTRASTING VIEWPOINTS FREE WILL PREDESTINATION1. Salvation by grace a 1. Salvation by grace a free will decision by choice God makes of some sinners. (John 3:16) some sinners. (Eph 1:5)2. Believers can also lose 2. God grants believers their salvation with eternal security (John 6:39) disobedience (Heb 5:5)3. One must always 3. Believers can know they question (doubt?) are saved (I John 5:13) one’s salvation. (Heb 10:26)

  • YOU COULD END UPQUESTIONING YOUR SALVATION! Maybe that’s a healthy sign: only real believers would care! Maybe that’s a challenge to deal with sin in your life Maybe that means you’re not saved!!! Sit with a counsellor and review your confession of faith!
  • And just maybe God will useyour interest in your own salvation . . . . . . to prepare you to play your part in someone else’s salvation!
  • h Suggestio ns for praying wit : n someon e seeking salvatio u, “I do now receive yo 1. Nail it down: Lord.” Jesus, as my Savior and ’s ent in the new Christian 2. Record the ev Bible. ut m to tell others abo 3. Encourage the their decision.And look at these great supports! Use them!
