    Re: Description of Supralapsarianism

    Thanks for that explanation, Bro. Bob. And I don't think that is what the sermon I listened to was referring to (a second ransom). I know it wasnt what I was referring to.

    Re: Description of Supralapsarianism

    Bob, again, sorry for being so unclear. TO ME, my above statement is just saying that the reprobate are here on earth to be used of God as a means to bringing in his sheep. (And I feel sure that's...

    Nicholas, I think you completely misunderstood everything that I said. I know nothing of a 'second ransom theory,' and I certainly didn't mean anybody was a second ransom for the elect. I will try to...

    Description of Supralapsarianism

    Re: Pure Religion

    I think the verse means just what it says. If any man claims to be religious and doesnt bridle his tongue, he is deceived. (We all are, apart from Christ). If we were truly religious and undefiled...

    Re: "faith in Christ" vs "faith of Christ"

    So my question is, "What is 'the faith of Jesus Christ'? What does this mean?"
