Kathr4453 - did Calvin teach we do not have free will?

I read the following:

From Calvin's Institutes he is explaining how it can be that we humans can have free will yet can at the same time inevitably sin. ... though we as humans necessarily fall into sinning, are still responsible for their deeds, since those deeds are still done voluntarily. In another passage Calvin states his doctrine of predestination: God has foreknowledge of all that will happen, all humans sin and deserve only condemnation, but God has pre-ordained, at the beginning of time, who it is that He will graciously save--in Calvin's words, "favored with the government of His Spirit." We, of course, cannot understand why some are saved and others not.

Nana, if there's anything "cuckoo", it's your sad doctrine that "dead" man is able to communicate with God. "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:24

According to you, since the man has the ability to communicate with God by their own "free-will", why then would Christ teach us that one must be born of the Spirit to see and enter His Kingdom? Why did Jesus even bother to die since you can "save" yourself from the wrath of God?

Using the cries of the Jews in Egypt to justify your "free-will" is ridiculous. For we now know that "without faith, no one can please the Lord".
---christan on 10/20/11


"Nana, the way the Lord explaind it to me is this. God clearly said WHOSOEVER WILL.

Also too, Israel was in BONDAGE to Egypt for nearly 400 years. Yet they Cried out to God. SO the human will, even in bondage is capable of crying out to God to set him free. "
kathr4453 on 10/20/11

Yes kathr4453, that is how I understand it also.

In times past...And the Word was God.
God is fair-true and just.
He [created] all souls for His pleasure. All belong to Him--regardless.
Ez18:4 Behold, all souls are mine, as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

However-He [formed] mankind for the options of choice. He did not make them eat from the tree of knowlege of good an devil, he [commanded] them not to.(choice) If there was not will from mankind This command would have not be able defiled by the will of man.

However-the Elect were [set aside] for a purpose
This is just the beginning of this cycle of choice.

kathr4453 //Neither by creation nor by subsequent acts of GOD are man's decisions made for him, he is free to choose for himself. leej//


So Calvin really did not preach NO FREE WILL.

So what is it lee, free will or no free will?
---kathr4453 on 10/20/11




kathr4453 //Neither by creation nor by subsequent acts of GOD are man's decisions made for him, he is free to choose for himself.
---

Glad to see you finally got into reading the Westminister Confessions.

What you concluded is true but with the qualification that God can overrule the decisions of man if it is His will to do so.

While He raised up Pharoah to display His will, and selected Esau over Jacob, Isaac over Ishmael, these people are still held responsible for their actions.
---lee1538 on 10/20/11


Nana, the way the Lord explaind it to me is this. God clearly said WHOSOEVER WILL.

Also too, Israel was in BONDAGE to Egypt for nearly 400 years. Yet they Cried out to God. SO the human will, even in bondage is capable of crying out to God to set him free.

23And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

24And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

25And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

"As the bird with a broken wing is "free' to fly but not able, so the natural man is free to come to God but not able."
Loraine Boettner

Talk about 'bird', Loraine Boettner was a Cuckoo Bird. To the Man He made God said:
Deteronimy 30:19_20 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
---Nana on 10/20/11


The Westminster Confession ( Calvinism) is very careful to assert the liberty of the human will. When it speaks of GOD's eternal decrees, we are told, 'GOD from all eternity did freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass: yet so, as thereby neither is GOD the author of sin, nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.' When discussing Free Will, the Confession begins, 'GOD hath endued the will of man with that natural liberty, that it is neither forced, nor by any absolute necessity of nature determined, to good or evil.' Neither by creation nor by subsequent acts of GOD are man's decisions made for him, he is free to choose for himself.
---kathr4453 on 10/20/11


Gordon, everyone has a choice, they are free to choose, but their will is in bondage to sin. The choices they make is how God finds them guilty or not.
If they could change their own hearts, give themselve spiritual life, create in themselves saving faith, convict their own hearts, God would welcome them into His Kingdom. But they cannot. Only God can do that work. If God does not do that work in them, they remain the same, heading to hell. Man is free agent but he cannot originate the love of Christ in his heart. His will is free in the sense that it is not controlled by any force outside of himself. As the bird with a broken wing is "free' to fly but not able, so the natural man is free to come to God but not able.
---Mark_V. on 10/20/11




Gordon, when God commanded "Therefore choose life..." is your definition of God having endowed you with "free-will"? Fantastic!

Christ declared: "It is the Spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."

Every word in the Scripture is spiritual and Christ declared, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Amazingly without grace, you claim you are not spiritually dead toward God. Within your "sinful flesh" you can hear God even when Paul declared we are "dead in sins and trespasses". Contradiction after contradiction.

GOD says in DEUT 30:19 "I call Heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you Life and Death, Blessing and Cursing: Therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live!"

That was (and IS) GOD HIMSELF offering a CHOICE. ---Gordon on 10/19/11

Some scriptures cover much acreage.

Good one Gordon.
---Trav on 10/19/11


MarkV, I explained to you what it means in the Scriptures as pertaining to the word "Will" as it applies to GOD. If you do not want to receive the Truth, that is your choice. Someday you will find out this Truth as I shared it with you. GOD is Perfect and is the Source of all Truth. But, He does not do everything for us. He forces no one to make a Choice. He offers the opportunity to us to make our own choice between Life and Death, Good and Evil. Once-Saved, Always-Saved is a false doctrine that twists the thinking and understanding of the person who adheres to it. It's unfortunate, too.
---Gordon on 10/19/11


Christan, GOD says in DEUTERONOMY 30:19 "I call Heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you Life and Death, Blessing and Cursing: Therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live!" That was (and IS) GOD HIMSELF offering a CHOICE. This is how HE relates with us all, Christan. We are free-will beings. GOD gives us the choice to choose between Good or Evil. HE forces no one to make the Choice one way or the other. Rather, HE encourages people to choose the Good. But, for those who HE knows have hardened their hearts to HIM, without a desire to repent at all, HE will use their hardened-hearts for HIS Purposes, as HE did with the Pharaoh.

---Cluny on 10/18/11


Gordon, you are so confused that you have no idea what you are really talking about. It's you who said, "HIS perfect Will came to pass."

If God's will is perfect, which means absolute/100%,
- how is it that man can thwart "His perfect will" if He wants to save everyone?
- that those who perish must also be "His perfect will", right?

And please do find me where in the Holy Scripture that comes close to what you claim, "man's free-will which GOD endowed him". I know of no such Scripture. But I do know Scripture says, "If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book."

Gordon, I'm not going to split your hairs, if you want to give the glory to man over God go for it. If you want to strip God of His Omnipotence then you do it at your own will, but you can never say when you stand before God that no one told you, I told you, and you won't be along on the line, it will be full of those who turned the Truth into a lie. Peace I leave you. Good luck, Oh wait a minute, believers do not believe in luck, chance, or fate.
---Mark_V. on 10/18/11


MarkV, You're splitting the wrong hairs! The word "Will" can be both a noun and a verb. And the verb "to will" has two different meanings. To will something in a way that it WILL come to pass. And, to will something in a sense of DESIRING it to come to pass. GOD does both. GOD is willing that none perish. But, have people perished since HE wills that no one perish?? YES. Many have perished. Therefore, we know, by the context, that the word "will" here, means "DESIRE". On the other hand, GOD willed to create the Universe, and HE did so. HIS perfect Will came to pass. To point out man's free-will which GOD endowed him with does NOT, Mark, make man "equal to GOD". Man is made in HIS Image!
---Gordon on 10/17/11


Gordon, don't you stop to consider what you say has a lot of consequences concerning God. Here is why,
1. God is God because His Ruler of all things. "It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers, that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: that bringeth the princes to nothing, He maketh the judges of the earth as vanity" (Isa. 40:22,23).
You suggest this grassphoppers control the actions of God because of their free will. That God is hoping you will be kind enough to choose His Son, because He cannot impose His will on you. That's not the God of Scripture. You make man omnipotent and God impotant.
---Mark_V. on 10/18/11


Gordon, you've come to believe the chargin words that you speak, of which I talked about. First, we were made in His image, but we are not equal to Him. He is holy and we are sinful. Second, if He made us equal as Him, then He is not the Omnipotent God and Ruler of all things. We would be as much rulers as Him. Sorry but that is completely not biblical. Then you spoke about His desires and His will. They are two different things. He desires no one sins, but they do and He knows they will and permits it. His will should never be compared with His desire. Because God is soverign and His will can never be frustrated, we can be sure that nothing happens over which He is not in control. He at least permits whatever happens to happen.

Are you a Job? He knew where evil came from, do you?
****

Christ said MANY would come in HIS name to DECEIVE and WARNED to NOT follow them Luke 21:8

Christ did not say "a few"

Do you understand Satan is the author of evil or do you subscribe to the "evil from nowhere theory" and you believe vampires and boogey-men exist ...hard to determine from your quizzical post

Truth is Satan IS the god of this world and has DECEIVED the WHOLE world 2Corin 4:4 Rev 12:9

sadly majority believe their lying false ministers RATHER than Gods Word

vampires and the like are fictional creatures much like mickey mouse
---Rhonda on 10/17/11


I didn't say that Joseph did wicked, but i am saying that neither he or anyone in his age knew about LAW
example
Abraham married his halfsister, Isaac married his direct niece, Jacob married his two nieces and sisters, Ruben defiled his father's bed, Judah sold his brother, and the list goes on. to make the fathers holier then they where is violating God's word, Because God gave us revelation, not to praise men but to show the way out of our sure condemnation (the law was added so that sin would increase)
---andy3996 on 10/17/11


Rhonda and Gordon,

Many "professed Christians" struggle, thinking that evil popped out of nowhere and caught God by surprise. Is this true? Far be from it! God declared, "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." Proverbs 16:4

Job was a true Christian justified by God through faith - lost his family, wealth and was inflicted by Satan in the flesh but his life was not taken by Satan. Yet, he rebuked his wife when she told him to curse God, saying "Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?" Job 2:10

Are you a Job? He knew where evil came from, do you?
---christan on 10/17/11


Andy, I don't know what you are trying to say about the law. But let me say that Joseph was not doing evil by what he did, the fact is he wanted to bring conviction to his brothers for what they had done. He was also doing the will of God. For He tells them,
"And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So now it was not you who sent me here, but God, and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throught all the land of Egypt" (Gen. 44:7,8).
Here is a good passage that speaks about the sinful acts of man (his brothers selling him as a slave) and the ordain will of God concerning their sin.

MarkV, My comment about "OSAS" does tie in with GOD "hopes" OR rather, "GOD desires". I was not trying to veer off onto another subject. The false doctrine of OSAS ties in with "GOD desires" in that GOD desires that none perish. And GOD desires that no followers of HIS turn their backs on HIM permanently unto Perdition. GOD forces salvation on no one. At one point in time or another, each and every individual human being has to make a FREE-WILL choice to accept GOD or reject HIM. To choose to repent and turn from their sin to be saved and walk in Holiness thereafter, OR to tell GOD "NO WAY, I'm goin' MY WAY!". GOD desires that none perish, but, each man must decide, first, what they want.
---Gordon on 10/17/11


AMEN, Rhonda. The Evil is so very underestimated. I cannot stress that enough!
---Gordon on 10/17/11


MarkV, What I meant by "GOD HOPES" is that "GOD DESIRES" that many turn to Salvation. GOD is willing that none perish. GOD desires that none perish. Btw, GOD "willing" and GOD "desiring" that none perish does not mean that the people cannot perish, just because wants, or desires that they do not. GOD has man with "free-will" Man is made in GOD's Image. GOD is the Ultimate Free-Will Being, and HE made us that way, too. Therefore, man must make the choice to be redeemed. GOD forces it on no one. GOD is the perfect "Gentleman" and HE respects man's wishes.
---Gordon on 10/17/11


Gordon, I respect your views even if I disagree on some things, but the point I made is so very important. I know when Christians talk to others they use religious chargin. Words not biblical in order to make a point when they speak. But when that chargin, or words are use, those words stay in the mind of others, then later people begin to believe what they heard from others, while it might not be bad concerning man, it is bad when it concerns the nature, character and attributes of God. The words you used were that God was hoping. Man can hope all they want, but God never hopes for anything. He never changes. His actions towards man can and do change, but it is not because He learned something new He didn't know before. He is all knowing.

Gordon, my question was about God not man. I said God never hopes for anything for He is all knowing. You did not answer why you said God was hoping. That was the topic.
OSAS was never mentioned. Free will was never mentioned. If you want a blog so that you can speak about those subjects put one down. I will be glad to answer those questions.
Again, you did,
"MarkV, Fret thee not, Brother. I'm very careful about what I say regarding GOD Almighty"
Brother, if you very careful what you say about God, why did you say what you did? That is the only reason I answered you.
---Mark_V. on 10/14/11


Gordon, your knowledge of who God really is smells of complete hypocrisy and ignorance. Even after God Almighty declared who He is in the Holy Bible. You may think you are "defending" His honor (like God actually needs someone He made out of dust to defend Him) but rather you're denying His glory.

After He declares, "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass, I have purposed it, I will also do it." Isaiah 26:10,11

This includes Satan and company.

Bruce, It's what the Nazis stood for, knowing what the S & C symbol stood for under that context. Is it a mostly current fad for Marines to sport the S & C? Skull and Crossbones is mostly a symbol of Death, Bruce. My point is that the S & C symbol has curiously become more and more popular just as our (esp. American) culture has gotten more and more degraded with a greater and darker fascination with Occultic subjects and the likes of Vampires, Werewolves and space aliens, etc. There is a co-relation between the two.

Andy, Joseph in Gen. 44:5 was not practicing divination, a pagan riligious rite. The whole story was fabricated by the servant. He was following the instructions of Joseph. The cup was Joseph's own special cup but was describe as one connected to divination in (v.5, 15) by the servant. The cup was a vassel symbolizing the authority of Joseph's office of Egyptian Vizier. Joseph made the whole thing up to get Benjamin and brothers to humble themselves for what they had done to him. And the plan worked. Joseph later told them "But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselvess because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life"

Gordon, you have to careful how you speak concerning Almighty God. you said,

" But, at the same time, in HOPES that some, if not all, will REPENT!"

That is not the God of Scripture seating and hoping. He is Omniscient, for He is all knowing. How could He be hoping for something? He never learns anything. Those kind of commets only deminish the nature of God. He already knows who will and will not confess Christ as his Savior. I'm answering this way because you said, we should stop downplaying the intensify of evil, but you downplay the very natue of God. Something wrong there don't you think?

GOD does not create nor do Evil in and of Himself! Satan is the one who started Evil! Mankind followed suit in the Garden of Eden! But, GOD uses this Evil to give all men a chance to prove which side they will stand on. On GOD's Side or Satan's. GOD will use Satan's craftiness as Judgment on the evil and the wicked and rebellious ones of mankind. But, at the same time, in HOPES that some, if not all, will REPENT!

"have we lost this generation to darkness?"
All human beings who are descendants of Adam are in darkness. We didn't lose them, they are already in darkness and heading to hell. They need faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. That's why no one now leads anyone to hell, Adam did that all by himself. Watching moves is bad for believers because they put idea's in their mind. Idea's like what Gordon suggested, that satan created this movies, and that satan will not stop at nothing, when in reality He can only do what God permits or allows him to do. He does not defeat the purposes of Almighty God, no one can do that. Especially sinful men. That is not the God of Scripture who is Omnipotent.

Gordon, Satan himself is a created spiritual being of God. He's not God and he cannot make or create any form of beings, like God does. However, it's God who has a purpose for Satan when He created him and declared, "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." Proverbs 16:4

With 2 teenage girls at home, I know first hand how popular Twilight alone has become. The books, the movies, all the paraphenalia on the market. I can thank God that they are not currently caught up in it, but many of their peers are. Also wizardry, paranormal, the list goes on and on. It's a spiritual battle we ought to be concerned with.

The real problem is that there so many people in the world who are following the supernatural world of evil and darkness getting into things which should be left alone and they don't realize the things they are dabbling in are of the Devil. The older generation had sense enough to know evil isn't a fairy tale to play with,many of the younger ones don't. Our world has been bombarded occult things until they seem harmless. I don't belive in Vampires or Werewolves. New Age teachings are parly to blame. I have never heard of attacks on people by those who think they are those creatures.

I find it strange that there haven't been any news stores like this. Where do you get this information? We have not lost this generation to darkness. There is a revival going on within our youth at church.
---KarenD on 10/13/11


horray to hollywood!

darkness of ones imagination ...sadly young adults today were the generation of children who grew up with mindless entertainment and babysat by the "tv-god"

these now-adults were given very little discipline encouragement or ideals characters values and goals to strive for so they act out their EMPTY lives with the tv and movies they were brought up on

however I would love to know where these supposed killings happened and those mentally impaired who are claiming they are something that does not exist

unless hollywood becomes extinct there is nothing anyone can do
---Rhonda on 10/13/11


christian, the moderator isn't allowing a blog concerning vampires and werewolves. It was to be a warning to all about how this stuff really exist. It is all a part of hollywood and the paranormal trash that comes out of the movies. I have never seen an onslaught of devils and demons than now. Evidently the church isn't doing its job.

Christan ... Have you actually read the question?
---alan8566_of_uk on 10/13/11


"There has been a huge increase of attacks and killings by young people claiming to be vampires and werewolves"

Really? Could you cite even one or two examples?
---Bruce5656 on 10/13/11


I think this is a good question to answer because it shows how demons are on the loose.

satan is the prince of the power of the air and he roams about seeking whom he may devour.

There are 2 forces on this earth. The Holy Spirit and evil spirits called demons.

Demons enter a person when they open a door and let satan in. When kids are brought up with no beliefs or no scripture in their lives, satan finds an open door and drives and torments them and gets them to steal, kill and destroy their own life.

Remember, the devil is trying to take as many people to hell with him as possible. Young people are very vulnerable these days. Let's pray for them.

I didn't know there were any such killings at all.

Where did you hear there were? National Enquirer?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Moderator, you've got to be kidding me that you even approve of such a blog about vampires and werewolfs?
---christan on 10/12/11

You have a habit of seeing the title and not reading the content. Going for the throat. Hmmm.
Been guilty myself....of course. Once. ha.

The question is a concern of our times and perhaps someone's child,grandchild or relative.
Eating blood is an abomination. Killing or modeling after blood eaters is out there on the fringe.
Giving someone a prayer,scripture, support or advice is not in hollywoods interest anymore.

Let them come on. Take a bite out of me. I hope that holy spirit will get all down in their innermost being and save them. I will begin to preach to them and speak in holy tongues. I guarantee you that will flee, seven ways, in the name of Jesus. I shall not be moved. Like a tree planted by the rivers of water.Psalm 1

Christan. Grow up and stop being such a
whiner. CN is a great site. Whose afraid of vampires and werewolves? I'm not. I am filled with the spirit of God. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. According to the Word of God. You need to be saved if you are afraid of this hollywood crap. Leave the mods along and get yourself saved.

---christan on 10/12/11

I praise the Moderators for allowing the blog. It is a current event in our society these days which should be addressed. Your off-base commentary on the other hand is right in character as you are getting to be known in these blogs. You are the kidder,not the Mod.
---Nana on 10/13/11


Christan, The Evil that is to come upon the Earth during the Great Tribulation, is so underestimated. Satan is ANGRY now, knowing that his time is short, and he is going all out to lure in the souls of men and lead them down to Hell. If Satan can make Vampires, Werewolves and the Skull-and-Crossbones appealing FOR HIS EVIL PURPOSES, then he will stop at nothing to do so. GOD is not going to prevent Satan from doing some of this destruction because GOD is allowing it for Judgment and HE's drawing the Line of Distinction between Good and Evil and is offering the Choice between the two to each and every human being. HE is willing that none perish. So, it's IMPORTANT for Christians to know these things!

Arrest them, throw them into prison, and make them pay according to their criminal misbehavior of violence and foolishness. And if they have no remorse and cannot learn to be civilized in society, then let them rot.

The interest and fascination with Vampires among the younger generation (and some of the older) is a preparation to receive the Anti-Christ. The AC's "communion" will consist of the flesh and the blood of the martyred Saints of GOD. Vampirism is now being made "acceptable" to the current generation to make it an "appealing" thing, rather than something to shun and avoid. The same with the ever-growing attraction of the "skull-and-crossbones". Hitler's Nazis wore them as lapel pins on their uniforms! Here, the markets are making them to be fashionable and glamorous! HELLO??

StevenG, There's nothing to do about it. Just live your own life well. We all have enough personal shortcomings to keep us busy correcting for the rest of our lives. That should be our priority.
---God.is.everywhere on 10/12/11


"There has been a huge increase of attacks and killings by young people claiming to be vampires and werewolves. Have we lost this generation to darkness?" Some, yes, especially with the popularity of Twilight and and a variety of other dark influences, on the other hand, there also seems to be a rise in young people being used mightily of the Lord.
