Dear Prestor John,<br><br><br>I never said Simeon and Anna were not of the elect, I indicated that they were Christ's sheep even before they knew who He was, because they were hearers of God's voice.<br><br>I did not even understand the sentence: "For some reason you seem to think that election applies only to those who have been identified. When in reality it applies to all of God's chosen. Anna and Simeon being one of them." I don't think I know what you think that I'm thinking.<br><br>You wrote:<br>"As to your lack of sight, well that is the crux of the matter isn't it? You fail to see what is clearly taught in scripture. Pilgrim, Joe, Paul, all have pointed out why your statements are incorrect but you just can't see them. Ergo your spiritual astigmatism causes you to proclaim you see clearly when you have need of that eye salve that cures."<br><br>Rest assured if I did see what you are saying, I would be hallucinating-- for there has not yet been a reply to my challenge that holds any water. If you don't believe me, read my rebuttals. <br><br><br>In Christ, <br>Josh<br><br>P.S. I actually have tried to rent "The Day the Earth Stood Still" from my local Blockbuster, but they don't carry it. They must have needed the extra space for two more copies of "Road Trip." Sheesh.<br><br>
