There are various teachings on predestination and election zombie. Calvinism and Wesley-Arminianism are the two prevelant ones.Originally Posted by zombie-a-go-go
I am a follower of the latter. Other then this particular area (election and predestination), I'd say that traderumor and I agree on 99% of everything else.
I believe the plan of redemption and was predetermined by God. The people were also predetermined, meaning those who accept Christ.
But the invitation is open to all, and there are too many scriptures IMO, that would back that up. But the most prevalent one is....
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16,17)
Even though I've been to Redszone gatherings with you - you are STILL a "whosoever".
