I haven't read the book, but I want to thank you for endorsing it, because through that and the discussions that ensued here on LT I began to question my own beliefs and seriously search the Scriptures. I have since seen areas where I was flat out deceived and am so thankful for the encouragement I received here in regards to studying the Word of God. Thank you for contending for the truth.

P.S. As Peter said in one of his letters, "God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." How plain can His Word be?!?

I realize this discussion may be considered "old news" now, but I just remembered something that happened about a year ago. I attended a special service at a local church of which I had a generally positive view, and everything seemed great until the pastor made a statement in his sermon wondering "why Jesus was sad when the rich young ruler walked away". Really??? I thought the answer was quite obvious! Later that day I read some free material I had picked up at the church, saw that they have a "sister church" out West, and that church's very detailed doctrines made it ultra-clear that they are strict Calvinist. I was shocked and saddened to realize this was the basis for the pastor's uncomprehending comment. Sad to say, that local church used to be a HUGE force for good, particularly among local teens, but now that it has gone Calvinist, it's just too sad to think about what the results in people's lives will be. It is unbelievable how much outright error is being taught from church pulpits -- of every kind, not just Calvinism. :-(
