Happy Birthday Jon

Jon, my first born has turned 39.  That means next year he will be 40!  Why is it that when I think about him, I see him as a 16 year old?  Now he is a husband and a dad of 2 darling girls........a family man. Proud of him always,  a good kid, a supportive brother, a loving husband, an involved father.....besides his "day job" as an analytical Chemist/Software Engineer, etc.  Love you first son....even if you do pick out Ethiopian Restaurants for your birthday dinner.

HAS GOD'S GRACE BEEN OFFERED TO ALL MEN?

According to Calvinists, God has only offered grace to a select few who were individually predetermined for salvation before man was created. Is this what the Scriptures proclaim? No, they do not.

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God..(NKJV)
The words of John Calvin are not Scripture.
The words of the apostle Paul are Scripture.(SEE: 2 Peter 3:15-16)

The apostle Paul wrote the letter to Titus. Titus is Scripture. John Calvin did not pen one single verse of Scripture. Calvin's words were not Scripture. If John Calvin's writings were inspired by God, then they should be included in the Bible.

THE BIBLE PROCLAIMS THAT GRACE IS OFFERED TO ALL MANKIND UNDER THE NEW COVENANT TERMS FOR PARDON.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. (NKJV)

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. (New International Version)

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people. (English Standard Version)

Titus 2:11 For the all saving grace of God has been revealed to all men; (Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation hath appeared to all men, (King James Bible)

The free gift of salvation has been offered to all men who will accept God's terms for pardon.

THE TERMS FOR PARDON.
1. Faith: John 3:16
2. Confession: Romans 10:9
3. Repentance: Acts 3:19
4. Water Baptism: Acts 2:38
