How much choice does any individual human actually have? We speak of "free will"—but how much of a choice to accept God's grace does anyone have, given the brainwashing and propaganda to which they are subjected? How much of a choice to accept God's grace does a young boy in a radicalized Muslim school have? How much of a choice to accept God's grace does someone have who is ensnared by some ultra fundamentalist church, where performance-based religion rules? Being in Christ is a divine invitation to an eternal relationship, open to everyone. But how much of a choice do we really have?
1) I believe God provides an open invitation to all mankind—and that in some way, somehow, God will, in his perfect wisdom and love, eventually draw people to himself. 2) God's grace draws us to Christ (see John 6:44 and 6:65). When God "draws" us he graciously overcomes the spiritual inertia that holds us captive. Talking about Anabaptism. The Radical Reformation: Resources. GAMEO. House Church Theology: Doctrine of Election. The New Testament has fourteen references to "election" or "God's elect.
" Obviously, those passages refer to those who have found salvation in Christ. But thinkers like John Calvin were not at all content with such a simple explanation. Committed to the strong church-state system that had been in place for over 1000 years, and knowing that some (if not most) of their fellow countrymen were unregenerate, they faced a theological dilemma: The entire Constantinian concept of church-state identity would have to be discarded, or They would have to invent a new doctrine to patch over the problem. Not surprisingly, they chose the second. Calvinism. Preface to 'Jesus' - a Blending of the Gospels. Jesus Christ is undoubtedly the single most influential figure in the history of Western civilization.
His influence touches the daily life of every individual. Yet, most know little about him. More often than not, what they do know has been altered by myth and colored by misconception. The story of his birth is familiar through numberless recounting at Christmas time, as are the details of his death through annual Easter celebrations, but his life and his teachings are little known and less understood. Christ "emptied Himself" (Philippians 2:7) Welcome to the Book of Concord. Christian History for Everyman. Christian history is, by definition, the most exciting stories and interesting facts of all time.
Everyman … is you! Have you heard of the days when the storyteller was the most beloved man in the village.

[Gr. ἀνάμνησις remembering < ἀνά up, again + μιμνήσκειν to call to mind, attend] a recollective ascent or ascensional recollection Welcome to Anamnēsis, the weblog of Dr James S. Cutsinger, a professor of theology and religious thought at the University of South Carolina. Further information concerning him and his work can be found on his website, www.cutsinger.net. As a teacher and author, Professor Cutsinger regularly finds himself on the receiving end of questions and challenges—outwardly diverse, to be sure, but inwardly connected in one way or another to God and the spiritual life. The issues he is called upon to address are sometimes theoretical and sometimes practical. It has seemed to Professor Cutsinger for some time that his responses to a select few of these queries, those having a more general import and thus of potential interest to a wider audience, might be usefully shared in a public forum.
Why Anamnēsis? Gieraths: Life in Abundance - 1. Commandments of Christ. The Commandments of Christ The following is a list of commands which form the basis of our life in Christ.

Avenge not yourselves: rather give place unto wrath: and suffer yourselves to be defrauded (Rom. 12:18, 19).
