Welcome

The Bible is the Infinite Existence's self-disclosure about how Famous He is really is, as He shines this beauty through His Son Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:29-39

Romans 8:29-39

 

The Unstoppable Love of the God

 

Whom God fore-loved[1], He also predestined; and,[2] whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

 Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.

 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

 Who shall separate us from… the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

God was not forced to love His chosen ones.  He did not receive a highly reasoned argument from an angel as to why He ought to make them one with His Son, who is one with Him. There was not an outside standard of logic, love or justice that taught God[3] that He should not or should save some nasty creatures: with the fallen angels He in fact did not. God is the freest of all beings: actually, He is the only being whom intrinsically and solely process freedom. God does not get surprise by the future or by new information; but rather, He is immutable, for He knows the future because He made it decree by decree. God designs the future from scratch by and for His personal goals.   Therefore, when God makes a choice it is completely by His freedom, initiative, wisdom and love; without any outside force, power, knowledge, or argument influencing Him.  This is why God’s choices are final and irrevocable. That is, His choices/decrees are exactly what He wants, and so He will see it through to the end: because, they are exactly what He wants.   Since there is no internal conflict with the Divine Mind, since there is no standard above God, and since the possibility of new information appearing does not exist, then God’s choices are final, irrevocable and exactly what He wants: He will see them through to the very end.

          And so, created beings have their meaning in accordance to their relationship to these personal goals and desires of God.

          What this means is that there is only two types of people groups scattered across this blue sphere spinning in the cosmos. Non-Christians like to put their foot on the neck of God and bow Him to serve them. However, like the Philistines when they put their foot on the the Ark of the Covenant and shoved it into the temple of Dagon, it was Dagon who bowed not the Infinite Existence. Nonetheless, the inferior intellect and the gullibility of non-Christians keeps them re-attempting what Philistines did. Today, you hear that God loves everyone: that He works out all things for good for just about anyone. Even homosexuals say God works their unnatural sexual intercourse for their good. People will say God is for Americans, or that, today is the day of God being for the Asians (etc.)  But another non-Christian will say God is for the blacks, or for the whites or for poor, or for the rich: for men or for women.

          However, as we have seen the only group which God for-loved and works all things for their good are those chosen ones that He before time began predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son. These same people, God, decree by decree, and then in time, step by step, calls them to be sons and daughters by almighty power, and then He justifies them, and finally glorifies them to be with Him forever. The point of Paul using a logical sorites in this verse is precisely to show that the same group that was at the beginning is the exact same group (without any addition or subtraction) at the end.  This is the only group that God works all things for their good.  What we see is that in Jesus Christ God puts His foot on the neck of His chosen ones sin, and then pulls them out of their just condemnation and brings them up in glorious power into the very heavens of heavens.  On the reverse we see that God is the one with His boot on the neck of all non-Christians ensuring that even the temporary good they received on earth is used to fatten them up and weigh them down further into condemnation and flames.

Romans 8: 28-31

 

The Unstoppable Supremacy of the Christ

 

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

For whom He [fore-loved], He also predestined[1] to be conformed to the image of His Son, that Jesus might be the firstborn among many brethren. [Jesus became] “Firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”[2]

Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

 

Little Billy has always lived down the street from John and his family. John never gave Billy much attention or thought. However, after about a month ago John has gotten to both know and love Billy. Billy comes from a poor family a few blocks down, and about a month ago John’s 10 year old son, Jack, caught Billy trying to steal from his pocket at the playground. Jack did not call the authorities, but instead invited Billy over for dinner and befriended him. Billy apologized and was glad for a new friend. Over the next month Billy’s behavior changed for the good, due to Jack’s kind befriendment and encouragement.  From great love for his son’s sake John decided to love Billy, invite him in as a friend, even as an adopted son; He befriended him and encouraged Jack.[3]

(1) Why do all things work for the saints’ good?

 

Jonathan Edwards in his book, The End for which God Created the World, systematically compiled, for 10 years, all verses dealing with God’s glory and shows that God’s chief end in creating all things and love is for His glory. What we learn is that, love indeed, has something to do with God’s pursuit of His glory; namely that, God’s LOVE is for His Son to have public Supremacy. And so, this makes His glory the chief end. In Ezekiel 36 the Lord tells Israel more than once that regarding His salvation of them that “Not for your sake do I do this, says the Lord GOD, “Let it be known to you.  Be ashamed and confounded for your ways.” And again, “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name (i.e. Glory) sake.” That is, God does not save them because he loves them, or because they are valuable in and of themselves; rather, God’s Name is valuable and He loves His holy name (i.e. holiness gone public, which is what glory is); and therefore, His glory which He loves deserves to be saved from the dishonor sinful man has done to it, even if it means the way to glorify Himself is saving the sinners who dishonored His glory. This is why God tells us to be ashamed for thinking so highly of ourselves.

1. THE UNDEFEATABLE WORLDVIEW **BOOK **

This book is my goal to help people avoid wasted studies and instead give them a primer of Biblical apologetics and preaching.

The world is drowning in an abyss of skepticism. It is on an intellectually inferior and harmful path. It is in a constant horror story of always progressing, yet never finding knowledge, betterment or salvation. On the other hand, God has given us the good path, the right path in the Christ. We do not change, for God gives us the truth from the start. For us to better we stay on the right path, the good path set before us. What we find is that not only do all Ultimate Questions coverage only in the Biblical Philosophy, but all things necessary for thought and for any intelligence "only converge" in God's revelation. The world does not have an apologetic against such superiority and unstoppable Wisdom.

Sincerely: Oshea


The label for this apologetic form: Biblical Rationalism (i.e. rational standing for the formal logical system of deduction.)
