WWUTT: God Doesn’t Make Anyone Believe?

In John 15:16, Jesus said, “You didn’t choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit…” Now, some have argued that this doesn’t apply to everyone, only the Disciples.

No. It is not okay for Christ-followers to use foul language.Now, some people may ask, “But, wait…what about that time when Paul used the Greek word for dung?” Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ (Philippians 3:8) Isn’t that the same thing as using a certain curse word for dung?Nice try… but no.Elsewhere, in Ephesi … [Read more...]
