I do not know whether most Calvinists are amillennial or not. I have never heard that, and I do know know why that would be true. As I said early on in this discussion, I do not prefer the term Calvinism, because that label is a bit of a nebulous envelope and sort of implies one believes what Calvin believed, and what Calvin believed is a huge topic. If one wants to know more of that, one can read the Institutes of the Christian Religion, which he authored. It is a quick read, being only about 100 pages (sarcasm).
As for myself, I an not amillennial, I am pre-millenial. Views of the millenium, and other eschatological events, are properly another topic I imagine.
There is no "positivity" in a headline titled: "Election 2016 a contest of negatives," i.e., the negative polling of both The Donald and Hillary.
"Never in the history of the Post-ABC poll have the two major party nominees been viewed as harshly as Clinton and Trump...." with the exception of one of them here on Worthy.
Sure, I'll point out sin in someone close to me or in special circumstances but
I'd rather that my brother's and sister's came to me and asked for my prayers and advice.
For me to thrust myself into their lives without express permission would seem too much
like the guy with a plank in his eye trying to remove a speck out of their eye. Condemnation.
I don't condemn people with sin because I've been too caught-up in it myself. Furthermore
Jesus didn't/doesn't condemn me when I'd sin... He walk me through it and out of it
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
Let us remember on this 3-day weekend those of us whose family members and friends have made the ultimate sacrifice for our safety. To all the men and women in service to this country, both on the battlefield and serving in some support capacity, I solute you, and respectfully ask God to bless you and your families for your service, in Jesus name I pray.
