Is that ALL There is ?!

"Meaningless, meaningless!" says the Teacher."Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless!" Ecclesiastes 1:2 These words were written 3,000 years ago.

Doctrines of Grace - Particular Redemption

This third distinctive of Calvinism teaches that Christ offered Himself on the cross not for every person without exception, but specifically for the elect given to Him by the Father. It might be put this way: did Christ die to make the salvation of all merely possible, or did He die to render the salvation of His elect certain? It clarifies the issue to put the focus not ...

Doctrines of Grace - Effectual Calling

This doctrine has to do with the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation. While the salvation of God's elect had been secured and purchased by the blood of Christ it was necessary for this salvation to be applied to them, so that they might come into personal possession of that salvation.
