What I believe about Predestination

calvinist arminian predestination

Predestination is a controversial topic, but it need not be. The Bible teaches that predestination is about our glorification and sanctification; not about justification. Therefore, if we fight about predestination, we are not living according to what we were predestined for, namely, to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

Jesus as the Divine Scapegoat

scapegoat

Jesus was a divine scapegoat. He not only revealed to us what God had been doing all along, but also unmasked the scapegoat mechanism for all to see. Through Jesus, we see the truth of violence, that it comes from us, and not from God.

God as the Divine Scapegoat

God Scapegoat

God is a divine scapegoat, allowing us to blame Him for our violence, so that He can carry our violence away and rescue us from violence. Without the scapegoat mechanism, human culture would collapse upon itself in a never-ending cycle of progressive violence.

Why God Appears Violent in Scripture

violent God

God appears violent in the Bible because humans would rather blame God for our violence than admit that we ourselves are violent. And God gladly accepts responsibility for our violence to help rescue and redeem us from violence.

Can a Christian lose salvation?

lose salvation

Do you wonder if you can lose salvation? It depends on what you mean by “salvation.” If you mean “eternal life” then no, you cannot lose your eternal life. Even still, there is great incentive to remain faithful to Jesus and obedient to His Word, for although we cannot lose eternal life, there is still much we can lose.
