Over the past few days, I've found a few things that have really been a bit of a challenge to what I traditionally held to as Calvinism. I'm going to take a few days/weeks maybe off from the board to do some more study. Keep me in prayer.

Take care.

The important thing is that you are a Christian - a believer in Christ and one of His sons.

I'm praying that God reveal the Truth of His Word to you and that you walk out your purpose to the glory of Christ Jesus.

No, it's not....seriously. But I'm working on a paper now, so I can't get all the way into it.

Thanks to all the people who've already hit me on IM about it. Thanks for your prayers - they're greatly appreciated.

Wow. Dad, I'm in shock. I've been staring at this thread and wondering why you decided to change. I mean, you've been in it longer than I have...shoo, you were one of the few that influenced me!

I'll be praying for you, and I hope I can catch you on YIM soon so we can talk. :frown:

Since this is serious, I think it would be helpful to take out the Sproul avatar. Not that you have to be a Calvinist to follow Sproul but still. That's like saying I'm not a "basketball fan anymore" thread but have Kobe in the avatar. Or some Arm. dude. Just a suggestion. But either way may God lead you into the truth

Well, Sproul's hermeneutics are pretty sound. It's some stuff in his book that actually nudged me this way....that, and some talks I've been having with a fellow 'armchair' theologian. She goes to a Calvary Chapel church. She pointed out a few things to me.....

yep....Me and kerry had a few talks about it.

It's not a joke...he actually been one this thing for a minute.

Well, I might as well get into it a bit. It's a multi-faceted issue, as I mentioned. I met up with this chick from one of the local CC churches named April (we met on another theology board).... nice girl, big family, intelligent, loves theology. We got to talking online and realized we had a lot in common, so then we got to talking a bit more about theology.


Our convo started off much like some of the ones on here, but took a shift when she didn't give the usual answers to Romans 9. Instead of trying to make it look like it was only talking about nations, she changed the topic completely.

"My last name is Fueles."

I was like "what ?". She said it again. "My last name is Fueles."

I was like...okay, what does that have to do with anything ?

She was like "April Fueles."

:D

(and for the record, I wouldn't have believed this if he said it on June 11th either)-- I know there have been cases of Calvinists going back to thinking how they used to, but it's very very rare and if he would have tried Mike (expo), Redeemed, Jason and QS would have kidnapped him, put a sack over his head and beat him until he came back to his senses...

Uhhh...so ya... next time come with something believable BC. Like... "I saw a UFO yesterday" ORRR "I just found out today that Oprah is my real mother" or "Me and Joel Osteen will be sharing a stage this weekend as we teach from the scripts" something like that... but BC not being a calvinist? :no:
