 Re:

paul labeled him self a pharisee after he was a christan ,,and we complain when some calles them self an arminian or calvinists ,,,how is this strange to me

i concidered a pharisse as a sect that was corupt hipacreats ,but paul was pleased to call him self one ,in the book of the acts ,,,,was he sinnng when he used the lable ,,,,,i wouldent go that far

it is the motavation behind the one who lables him self wich is sinfull

now unless we are allways 100 correct in prophect desernment ,, we should not judge people as sinning with out realy knowing the fruit in there life and what is motavating them to call them self a whatever

Who said anything about sinning?

I agree

Quote:

Again, who said anything about sinning?

Really guys... Maybe I am missing something here, but implications are being made without any merit.

If you feel more comfortable calling yourself something to distinguish yourself, then call yourself what ever you wish. I'll stick with the Bible and the inspired Word over what a mere human says. Bible wins out each time guys.

Blessings from your brother in Christ, who is a Christian...

 Re:

your welcome krispy,,,,i was just sharing part of my conversion experance as i see it ,,it just so happens to be of a reformed theolalogical experance


all im saying mica brother ,,is if it is not sinning to call ones self a calvinist or arimian ,,,then why be concerned with people that have that lable

the bible does win out brother true ,,that wyes i mentioned IN the bible paull called him self a pharisse

the reason why i mentioned sin was because an impure motavation to call ones self even a chrisian is sin full

what is not of faoith is sin ,,the bible says

so when someone bluts out the i am a calvinist,or a christan from a proud heart or proud effection it is sinfull ,because it was not said in faith

i wasnt caling any one here sinfull

 Re:

I am of Calvin. I am of Arminius. I an reformed. Makes one wonders what happen to being of Jesus. For it does seem we do love our labels. Perhaps far more than Jesus himself.

Paul labeled himself a pharisee because of this (" Paul realized that some members of the high council were Sadducees and some were Pharisees, so he shouted, “Brothers, I am a Pharisee, as were my ancestors! And I am on trial because my hope is in the resurrection of the dead!”" Acts23:6). Paul pretty much knew that the Pharisees would agree with him because of what the pharisees believe and what the Sadducees didnt believe (" for the Sadducees say there is no resurrection or angels or spirits, but the Pharisees believe in all of these." Acts23:8). Which caused them to divide. So Paul called himself a Pharisee because they believe of what is written in THE LAW.

In these days they are so many different believes, theologies, and doctrines. But there's one Truth, one true doctrine, and one true theology,. The Bible, Jesus Christ, Word of God, anyone whos against His theaching is against him and many of these other doctrines says something different, thats why its so strange to be labeled by some mens name like saying "im a follower of calvin or armenian, ect."

I call my self a Christian not because im better than any other men, but because I believe in Jesus Christ's Doctrines

Definition of CHRISTIAN

1
a : one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ

Thats all i got to say brothers and sisters,

God Bless

 Re:

I dont know anyone who says "I'm a follower of Calvin"... or "I'm a follower of Arminius."

John Calvin helped to define a particular view of the Bible, and thats it. I agree with most of what he taught, but I dont follow John Calvin. Besides, he was not the first person to teach what he taught. He didnt invent it, he clarified it.

Same thing for Arminius.

We really need to avoid blanket statements that generalize what we think others believe. We are usually found to be wrong. It's not helpful.

Amen! And I happen to be of the opinion that Reformed doctrines ARE Jesus Christ's doctrines. If I didnt think that then I would not be Reformed.

 Re:

Theology is a head trip. Puffs up one's intellect. Does nothing for the heart. Very few theologians live out that simple and pure devotion to Jesus.

Time spent in the presence of Christ in prayer and his word does more good to ones soul than theological abstracts.
