Why Should I Believe In Predestination?
Written by Ben Winslett   
Friday, 07 February 2014 11:22

Have you ever heard of predestination? Unless you're a part of a denomination that teaches it, you probably have 1) never heard of it or, 2) heard very negative and scary things about it.

 

As Primitive Baptists, we believe in predestination. But what is predestination? Combined with the concept of election (God's choosing), predestination is a doctrine found in the Bible that explains to us that before He created the world, God chose a large number of people based upon His love for them and set their destiny to be carried home with Him for eternity after the destruction of the Universe. The word itself is very appropriate to convey this thought: Pre (before time) destinate (set the destiny).

In reference to the debate last night between Evolutionist Bill Nye and Creationist Ken Ham, let me say I am thankful for Mr Ham's defense of the Biblical record of creation. Our Universe is the product of a Divine act of creation. I applaud Mr Ham for arranging this debate and I thank Mr Nye for accepting the invitation rather than brushing Ham and his challenge off.

Editor’s note: Elder Joe Holder publishes a weekly email devotional called “Gospel Gleanings.” From August 15 through September 5 he directed his attention to 1 Timothy 3:1. 1 Timothy 3:1 reads, “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.” The series name is “Ministerial Qualifications.” When I first read these articles in 2010 I felt refreshed and convicted.

Back to the Basics

I greatly enjoy college football. In general, the fall is my favorite season; family, football, great weather, holidays, lots of extra church meetings, etc. At the end of every football season I look back and assess the highs and lows. The wins and losses. There are teams with high velocity offenses. There are teams with hard physical defenses. I am amazed every year at each teams strategy and how the drama unfolds. I have often asked myself, "what makes a winning team?" There are teams that win through trick plays and flashy performances. But the most consistently winning programs have not been flashy. Most of the winnginest programs have just focused on the basics.

Sufficient for all but efficient for the elect only?
Written by Josh Winslett

The phrase "sufficient for all but efficient for the elect only" is passed around in many christian circles as a bridge between those who believe in a universal atonement and those who believe in a particular atonement. Usually this phrase is meant to qualify Christ's sacrifice as being, in quality, of such a great infinite value and worth, that it is sufficient to potentially atone for all of humanity, but it is only actually and efficiently applied to the elect. Is this statement correct? Is Christ's sacrifice potential AND actual, or is it only potential OR only actual? I contend that the atonement was only actual, and, that it was sufficient and efficient for only those to whom it was intended, God's chosen people. In this brief article, we will discuss the problems with this contradictory statement and the real meaning of the atonement.
