I really appreciate this! And I would be pleased (time permitting) to give my critic of JMAC “strange fire” conference.

So how is this theologically possible: if a person is predestined to be saved, how does he/she stop being a cessationist on his/her own? Charles Page Barry G. Carpenter

God has sovereignly decreed massive theological diversity, confusion and division….. How else can it be explained??? 🙂

I. God from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass; WCF. III.1.

Jon Sellers [07/11/2015 4:13 PM]
On the other hand if we ignore theological dogma and instead look at the realist perspective offered by scripture and simple observation, we see that theological diversity and all human behavior is the result of the free choices allowed to all humans. Not without influences such as God, sin, tradition, the devil and pizza 😉 . Or for Luther and Knox – beer.
So the choice to adopt a cessationist or non-cessationist view is the result of one’s study, exposure and experience.

I have to agree with Ed Brewer previous comment that in the “attempt to merge Calvinist soteriology with classical Pentecostal pneumatology- there are elements that are fundamentally incompatible” Steve Wright Steve Webb

also Steve Wright paper and Steve Webb video on the subject
