II: Man Cannot Choose God
#11 of 28)
According to scripture, it is clear that Jesus chooses man. Man cannot “freely” choose Jesus.
John 15: 16
16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.

The Lord CAUSED the Anakites to wage war against Israel by hardening the Anakites’ hearts (spirits) so that He could totally destroy the Anakites. The Anakites did not “freely” choose to wage war against Israel, as the Lord hardened their hearts (spirits) so that the Anakites would wage war against Israel.
Joshua 11: 20-21
20For it was the Lord himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminatingthem without mercy, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 21At that time Joshua went and destroyed the Anakites from the hill country: from Hebron, Debir and Anab, from all the hill country of Judah,and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua totally destroyed themand their towns.
III. Homosexuality: Not a “Free” Choice
#1 of 7)
The scripture states that being homosexual is only “unclean” to a person that feels in their spirit that being homosexual is “unclean.” So if a person does not feel homosexuality is “unclean,” then homosexuality is not “unclean” to that person. This is true for all so-called “unclean” acts.
Romans 14: 14
14I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
IV. God Uses Evil
#5 of 11)
The Lord brings calamity (disaster) in this scripture. The Lord takes a husband’s wives and makes them sleep with another man (adultery). Satan doesn’t bring calamity. Nor does man bring calamity upon himself. The Lord brings calamity.
II Samuel 12: 11
11This is what the Lord says: “Out of your own household I am going to bring calamity upon you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will lie with your wives in broad daylight.
#2 of 23)
The Lord says to bash the babies into the rocks, and kill the fetus in pregnant women (abortion) by ripping the pregnant women open.
Hosea 13: 16
16The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed into the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.
VIII. Problems with Christianity’s Eternal Punishment
#4 of 14)
The scripture states that the Son of man shall reward EVERY MAN according to his works. Once again, the scripture does not state the Lord will reward every believer, but EVERY MAN. If EVERY MAN is rewarded, then how can some men be rewarded and be in eternal punishment?
Matthew 16: 27
27For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.
IX. Judgment Day & The Lake of Fire
#3 of 8)
The scripture states that EVERY MAN’S work shall be tried by fire in the Day of Judgment. Hence, EVERY PERSON will be judged. Scripture states that a man’s work will either bring him a reward, or a man’s work will make him suffer loss. However, the scripture goes on to state that even the man that suffers loss and does not receive a reward will still be saved. Clearly, ALL MEN will be judged, and ALL MEN will be SAVED.
I Corinthians 3: 13-15
13Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
X. God Saves All
#2 of 17)
The scripture states that no man can say that Jesus is Lord without having the Holy Ghost. Scripture states that whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. The scripture states that EVERYTHING in heaven, on earth, and even under the earth will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. By using scripture to interpret scripture, EVERYONE will call on the name of the Lord and EVERYONE will be saved, as anyone who calls upon the Lord shall be saved!
I Corinthians 12: 3
3That no man can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
Acts 2: 21
21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10: 13
13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
I John 4: 14-15
14the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
.Philippians 2: 10-11
10That at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11And that EVERY tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, that glory of God the Father.
Romans 14: 11
11says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will confess to God.
I Corinthians 4: 5
5And then shall EVERY MAN have praise of God
