1 hour ago Question about a Boettner Quote [by Tom]
In Loraine Boettner's book 'The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination' page 101, he says the following: "A man is not saved because he believes in Christ; he believes in Christ because he is saved."
I and quite a few other Calvinists are trying to understand what Boettner meant by this.
It seems like he is saying that regeneration equals salvation.
I have read the context around the sentence and it does not seem to help understand what he means.
Any thoughts?

Tom

"Patrick was born in the year 373 in a town on the River Clyde in Roman Britain, now a part of Scotland. When he was sixteen years old, Patrick was captured by a band of pirates who sold him to a chieftain in what is now county Antrim in Northern Ireland. For six years he tended flocks. In his testimony he tells us, “I was taken captive before I knew what I should desire and what I should shun.”3 It was during the time of his captivity that he turned from his careless ways and came to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus. He was convicted that he was a sinner. In his own words,"
by Richard Bennett

A refreshing reminder that he was one of us. Read the rest of the Article here:

Fri Mar 08, 2019 2:45 AM Concerning a Spurgeon Quote [by Tom]
Hi
An Arminian quoted Spurgeon recently to show that Spurgeon is not a consistent Calvinist. I am trying to find the whole context of this quote, because it is fairly easy to take anything out of context to supposedly prove your point. My guess is at some point, ‘The-Highway’ has dealt with this before.

Quote
If I am to preach the faith in Christ to a man who is regenerated, then the man, being regenerated, is saved already, and it is an unnecessary and ridiculous thing for me to preach Christ to him, and bid him to believe in order to be saved when he is saved already, being regenerate." CH Spurgeon


Unfortunately, the responses that are coming back from Calvinists are basically that Spurgeon was wrong on this issue. They don’t seem to want to find out the context of this.

Mon Mar 04, 2019 1:34 PM Moses at the Transfiguration [by John_C]
Since we believe that the OT saints were saved the same as NT saints with their souls going to heaven upon death and retrieving their new bodies at the Second Coming.How did Moses have his glorified body at the Transfiguration?
