I can see why you chose the NIV! It contains two vital errors – that we may choose salvation (an offer) and ALL people literally have this offer. How different from the KJAV, which accurately says:

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,”

THIS says that salvation has appeared to all men. It does NOT say all men receive an offer to be saved!
The difference is that the KJAV is an actual translation, whereas the NIV is a paraphrase using different (corrupt) sources from those of the KJAV. A paraphrase consists of people mulling over what scripture says, and if those people do not have a true belief in God, their paraphrase will reflect this. Also note that in context the verse you chose goes on to speak of what believers should be like in their lives. Therefore, the verse is NOT about being saved but about the life we must lead AFTER salvation. Even the
corrupt NIV says the same thing. So maybe you need a different ‘proof text’!

Not quite.
What you describe IS works.
The necessary part of salvation is God’s election of souls in eternity.
What this means is we can do nothing to earn it, whether by repentance or ‘making Jesus Lord of our life”. Jesus is Lord of EVERY life, whether saved or unsaved. But He is not our Saviour until we are saved. We cannot ‘make’ Him our Lord. He already is our Lord.

Today I watched BBC news – the first topic was the murders.
But, Christians are murdered EVERY DAY, sometimes in greater numbers –
But the same BBC does not report on them. They are hypocrites.

In the Old Testament people were saved from earthly destruction.
That was the main meaning at that time.
A similar meaning can be applied to some New Testament texts, though most know of salvation of the person spiritually.
The examples you give have the first meaning – to be saved from an earthly enemy. But note that they were rescued thus because they obeyed God’s command. Their obedience was prompted by an intense personal burden from the Lord, which assured them. Other than that all in that era who were spiritually accepted by God were accepted on the strength of their righteousness “through faith” (see Hebrews 11 etc). Faith is a gift of God, given to those who are justified before the Lord, Who chooses or elects men to salvation.
You do not identify the exceptions you claim exist in the Greek, so I cannot comment on that. But, I can assert without doubt that God chooses people to salvation, and that their spirits are dead… as God says, no-one seeks after Him in such a dead state.

Thank you.
But I don’t know which part is ‘Calvinistic’.
I only accept from Calvin what agrees with scripture.

Hmmm. What do I say? After all, I am only a delusional little religious person.
(Please excuse my smile… but the remark is like that of a smug school teacher inexperienced in life who enters teaching straight from the sixth form and college!).
Yes, the issues raised in the programme are already well-known. But, NOT to ordinary viewers! Hence the need to speak against it. What the young lady said was capable of several alternative meanings… but these were not given.
That so many academics believe as she does is very sad. And that you appear to have deliberately looked at a Christian website just to argue is, well, a bit indicative of a bully’s agenda. It is also a sign that you feel threatened, and so you lash out… better than doing real research. Unfortunately you hit out at the wrong person…
I loathe bullies and I scorn the idea of consensus in ANY science. My theology is based NOT on this humanly contrived consensus based on biblically-invalid arguments, but on genuine research into what scripture says. If secular or non-biblical sources disagree, well,
that’s not my problem.
Nor do their views mean a jot. As for believing in fairies, don’t you know that each time you openly say they don’t exist, a poor fairy dies? (joke1)
Shame on you! And that you say you belong to the consensus-bearers is sad… I prefer truly academic minds that question and do not sit back
and say science is now closed… this is scientism, not true science!
Genuine textual analysis arises from scripture itself. Everything outside this is secondary and non-authoritative… like the meaningless drivel arising not from scripture but from the minds of the German schools such as Higher and Lower criticism, whose words belong in a book on fairies (sorry to invoke your friends) and are so obviously nuanced in a very amateurish way.

Amongst scholars the author of Acts is unknown or anonymous.
It is my view that Paul was the author but Luke was the scribe.
However, you or I may or may not be right!

The writer has not followed my intention – to oppose charismatic and other cultists who resort to Jewishness when Judaism is no longer valid. When David wrote his formal songs to be sung by the Temple choir and played by the Temple musicians they WERE his spontaneous responses to events and ideas. They then BECAME formal for use in the Temple. Also, Jews would sing and dance spontaneously when emotionally excited about, say, a victory.
I should add that my article was based on two sources – scripture and Jewish documents. Most of your reply in this instance are anecdotal. Singing and music are not the issue.

You have misread the article.
My reference to no hymns does not mean no music.
I KNOW David instigated singing and music in the temple.
And I KNOW we are a royal priesthood.
This wasn’t my point.

To take a critic seriously, the critic has to provide evidence.
Can you please identify specific examples of my ‘nasty attitude’, my being ‘prideful’ and my lack of care for lost souls?
Without these I must accept what you say as opinion.
If you provide these evidences and you are right I will indeed apologise and change what I say. The ball is in your court.
