Does God Lead Into Temptation - Interpret Bible with Bible


R. A. Torrey said, "Wherever you find a difficult passage in the Bible, there is always some passage elsewhere that explains its meaning." (How to Succeed in the Christian Life, p. 56).

When we find passages in Scripture that seem to denigrate God's character, the key is NOT to build a theology of God from them (as Calvinists have done for example) but to read all of Scripture and interpret its meaning.

Bible passages that appear to implicate God in some questionable act are usually PERMISSIVE in understanding and this is proven by interpreting it with other Scripture. Remember, THERE ARE NO CONTRADICTIONS IN SCRIPTURE - ONLY EXPLANATIONS.

Adjusting John 3:16 for Calvinists


Calvinists misrepresent God by teaching the false unbiblical idea that He preselected some to be saved and others to be lost before man was ever created.. Calvin wrote, "..we say that God once established by his eternal and unchangeable plan those whom he long before determined once for all to receive into salvation, and those whom, on the other hand, he would devote to destruction. ...he has barred the door of life to those whom he has given over to damnation." Institutes, Bk 3, Ch 21, s. 7

Furthermore, Calvinists teach that one is automatically regenerated (irresistible grace) and then they believe. Again, this is in contrast to Scripture. So, in order to help the Calvinist, we will adjust the Scripture for them to make their square peg fit in the round hole.

Celebrate - The Seventh "C" for Claiming God's Promises


In our seventh and final "C" to claiming God's promises we learn that we must CELEBRATE or give praise to God even before we see the manifestation of what He has promised. Romans 4:20 in The Living Bible is paraphrased well in regards to this: "But Abraham never doubted. He believed God, for his faith and trust grew ever stronger, and he praised God for this blessing even before it happened."

In Isaiah 38:18 we read, "For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not CELEBRATE thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth." The Hebrew word for "truth" here is "emeth" which is in reference to God's faithfulness to His promises. Another translation says, "For Sheol (the place of the dead) cannot confess and reach out the hand to You, death cannot praise and rejoice in You; they who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your faithfulness [to Your promises; their probation is at an end, their destiny is sealed]."

Hence, while we are alive and have breath we are to CELEBRATE (praise and rejoice) over God's faithfulness to fulfill His promises to us long before we see the visible tangible results of our faith. When we do, God will ensure that all that He has promised will come to pass.

Adjusting Scripture for Calvinists on Sin


Calvinists have consistently taught that nothing happens in this world apart from God decreeing and ordaining it. Every murder, rape (including those of children), accident, tragedy, sickness, and perversion is somehow a part of some "secret" will of God. This twisted ideology presents a deity worse than Satan. While it claims to get its support from the Bible, Calvinism TWISTS the Scriptures that it misquotes for its support and complete ignores or reinterprets others to fit their presentation of their monstrous deity whom they claim is the God of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, we thought that we would help them out by reinterpreting those uncomfortable passages of Scripture that refute their false teachings so that they can feel they have some Biblical support for the lies they spread that destroys the faith of some Christians, makes others fatalistic, and turns men into atheists.

Does God Make People Err? (Meme)


O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. (Isa. 63:17)

Commentary:
“So again, Isaiah lxiii. 17. “O Lord, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear?” should be, “Why hast thou suffered us to err from thy ways, to harden our hearts against the fear of thee ?” Many erroneous translations akin to these, have led some crude speculatists to circulate highly dangerous opinions as to the Divine conduct.”
Gregory, Olinthus Memoirs Of The Life, Writings, And Character, Literary, Professional, And Religious of the Late John Mason Good (London: Henry Fisher, 1828), p. 145
