The supremacy of man and subserviency of God is the foundation upon which the evangelical religion is built. Their whole doctrine is NOT Biblical even though they carry it, quote from a few pages, and wave it all around, but twist and pervert its teaching. Nowhere in the scriptures does it say “to go save souls”, “to get people to accept Jesus”, and “to get them to believe on Him so they can go to heaven and escape a fiery eternal hell.” These perverters of God’s truth are always injecting their followers with the poison that “man’s choice” forever fixes his eternal destination of “going to heaven or going to hell.” In all their preaching nothing is ever mentioned about God’s plan except that He has given MAN “free choice” and will never violate it. Poor old God cannot do anything but let “man’s free choice” reign supreme. All scriptures that contradict such jibberish are completely avoided. Just mention the story of Jonah, and you are the recipient of their vehement vicious vilifications. God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and Jonah CHOSE to go in the opposite direction, but Jonah still wound up in Nineveh. No he did not repent and go, but God had a great fish deliver him.
These evangelical “soul savers” talk about the Roman Road, but they stay out of Romans except for a few passages ripped out of context. Most of them quote a piece of Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,” and their implied meaning is completely different than what Romans chapter 8 is saying. They leave out the crucial part of the verse which says, “to them who are the called according to His purpose.” It is those “who are the called according to His purpose” “that love God”, and it this same group, “the called”, to whom “all things work together for good”. Turn the light of truth on with the next verse and watch the cockroaches run for cover. “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Now, who will be “conformed to the image of his Son”? As shocking as it may sound, it will only be those “whom He did foreknow”, those “He also did predestinate”. Dare to read the next verse? “Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.” None of this has anything to do with “man’s free choice”, but everything to do with God’s “foreknowledge”, “predestinated” WILL.
Continuing on into Romans 9:11-13 where it speaks about Esau and Jacob, “For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but
of Him that calleth; It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” There is still more, “For He saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.” (9:15-17) The apostle Paul is not finished yet. “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had AFORE PREPARED unto glory.” (9:20-23)
None of this has anything to do with “man’s free choice”, but these Roman Roaders want to jerk another verse out of chapter 10 with total disregard of everything that comes before it. In desperation they cry out, “Look at verse 13”. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Who do you think “shall call upon the name of the Lord”? They are the ones “AFORE PREPARED unto glory”, “the vessels of mercy”, “the called”, those “whom He did foreknow”, “whom He did predestinate”, “them He also called”, “them He also justified”, and “them He also glorified”. These are only those according to His ELECTION, and man has NO FREEDOM OF CHOICE in this matter. Pay attention to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:2. “As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given him.” Wake up and realize that “eternal life” is not going to heaven or hell, and it will only be given to those whom God chooses and elects according to His predestinated plan. Man’s free will is only a sinister ideology in the minds of blinded ditch dwellers. God’s plan is not subservient to anyone’s choice, and “eternal life” is not the heaven hell hoax. Jesus says what it is in John 17:3. “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” What do you know? Do you even know the name of the one true God, or the name of Jesus His son? Maybe it is not given to you to know, or maybe you need a stronger diet so you that can grow up.
