The question, "Who did Christ die for" is best answered by asking first, "What did His death accomplish." If you answer that question first, the other question is so clear. What did the death of Christ accomplish? -- Paul Thomas (FB aquaintance)

(My Addition:  Did the death of Jesus accomplish two degrees, one degree for all, and a separate degree for another;  one degree for availability, a second degree, for efficacy?  What did it accomplish for Peter that it did not accomplish for Goliath?  If it accomplished the same for Goliath as it did for Peter and Goliath is in Hell, the what more did Goliath need to accomplish that the death of Christ did not?)

“If there is one maverick molecule in all the universe, then God is not sovereign. And if God is not sovereign, He is not God.... I think Arminianism is death to Christianity!” -R.C. Sproul


When Christ was on the Cross, the Father's Glory was on His mind.

In short, natural reason never will direct men to Christ; and as to their being endued with prudence for regulating their lives, or born to cultivate the liberal arts and sciences, all this passes away without yielding any advantage. - John Calvin

If I were driving 95 in a 65, and I had three cop cars behind me on my bumper, blaring their lights and sirens; they would be upset that I was ignoring their will; and yet mankind attempts to paint most of society as "nice folks" despite how glaringly they leave God out of everything. Nevermind the blatant attacks upon God as "indicative" of man's rebellion, merely observe the "gall to ignore" God as a guide to their hatred of Him.

A 37 year-old Swede may pay the world's heaviest speeding fine for driving such a sports Mercedes at a speed of 186 mph. (Philippe Desmazes/AFP/Getty Images) A 37 year-old Swedish man who was caught driving his Mercedes SLS at a speed of 186 mph along the A12 highway stretching between Swiss Bern and Lausanne last Friday, may be fined the world’s biggest recorded speeding fine of over $1 million.

According to Swiss police, this is the fastest vehicle ever caught on the highway in Switzerland. Several cameras could not detect the speed of the luxurious limousine because their radar guns stop working at 125 mph.

Motorway fines in Switzerland are calculated based on the driver’s income and by how many miles he or she exceeded the maximum speed limit.

The previous biggest speeding offender was 44-year-old Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president of mobile giant Nokia. In 2001 he was made to pay almost $150,000 after driving his motorbike 47 mph in a 30 mph zone in Helsinki.

"I don't think we want to believe in a God who is a spectator in the
drama of redemption. Who sends a Christ to die on a cross and stands
there crossing his fingers hoping that someone will take advantage of it."~RC Sproul

I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him. - C.H. Spurgeon


Without the Holy Spirit teaching, the original languages are burdensome and boring, but don't blame that on the Holy Spirit nor the original languages; pray for grace to change your mind, heart, and appetite.

Some people do not like the original languages, but they like their own mind which supposes skill over them.

These things, therefore, are openly proclaimed for the sake of the Elect: that,
being by these means humbled and brought down to nothing, they might be
saved. The rest resist this humiliation; nay, they condemn the teaching of self
desperation; they wish to have left a little something that they may do
themselves. These secretly remain proud, and adversaries to the grace of God.
