    Calvin on 2 Peter:

    Thanks Don.

    We will just have to disagree on this. I recognize the acceptance of the book named James by the 'church' (wow!), and only will say that if they are right, James 2 on justification...

    Notitia, Assensus, and Fiducia

    Hi again Don.

    "I, for one, do not accept this notion that a single act or word spoken in time puts one past forgiveness." I do not accept this either, I'm not sure if you are claiming that I did....
