YOU SAID:<br><br><blockquote>You quote Romans 11:6-7, but make no statement as to how it connects to what I said. I don't see your point</blockquote><br><br>Sorry you do not understand the Scripture: You had said that [color:red] God has purposefully limited Himself and has delegated to each man some degree of control over his own destiny</font color=red> and my point is the ONLY limit God placed upon Himself was His elective grace and not being submissive to “our works” for [color:blue] if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (Rom 11:6-7)</font color=blue><br><br>YOU SAID: <br><br><blockquote>[color:red]I believe that God gives men space to repent of their wickedness (Revelation 2:21). He doesn't just re-save and damn a person every time they repent or sin.</blockquote></font color=red><br><br>Josh, stop taking verses OUT OF CONTEXT : Revelation 2:21 was written to the CHURCH which is, was, and is to come. The space He gives is only to the elect, no others, for their space was already prepared for them before the creation of the world (Rev 13:9, 17:8)<br><br>YOU SAID:<br><br><blockquote>[color:red]Besides Personally, I believe that God is very gracious and will give men the opportunity to repent of their sin, but will damn those that despise His goodness. </blockquote></font color=red><br><br>Opportunity, yes, God does give each the opportunity. To the blind, He says see, but they don’t see. To the cripple He says walk, but they don’t walk, to the ….I hope you get the point…..only if Christ ‘heals’ them and raises them from the deadness of their sins will their opportunity ever come to salvation. Plus, your personal opinion means nothing as weighed by Scripture<br><br>YOU SAID”<br><br><blockquote>[color:red]Someone would have had to shatter my theology for me to be upset. I am not ashamed of anything you have quoted from my posts. To contradict them you would have had to say something to disprove them, not just type the phrase, "Works righteousness!" a few times. </blockquote></font color=red><br><br>Of course you are right here [Linked Image]. I should have known that saying you believed in “works righteousness” and supporting it with all your quotes would not have offended you, for you believe it to be so. May God give you grace!<br><br>
