    So the "Gospel" was never preached prior to this doctrine being invented by the Reformers? Too bad Jesus didn't know about this.
    Atheism is a advertising nightmare as in what you see is what you get and when you die that's it. - DaveDodo007

    Totally depraved doctrine.
    Uncertain salvation.
    Luck of the draw.
    Irresistible damnation.
    Persecution of the saints.

    Jude 1 does not fit with this plan of salvation:
    "To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ"
    It is those who are called, not those who accept!

    God's free gift of salvation is the gift of life
    started in the garden of Eden.

    The Lord God gave to Adam and Eve
    the gift of life to which
    if he had received it
    would have saved him
    from sin and death.

    Genesis 2:17
    But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
    thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest
    thereof thou shalt surely die.

    Adam and Eve did not believe God therefore they did not receive
    His free gift of salvation and lost their gift of life.

    Then God sent Jesus to give mankind again
    His commandments of life to which is the free gift
    of salvation. If you receive them and believe them
    you will obey them.

    God has left it all up to you
    just as he did to Adam and Eve.

    Your destiny is in your own hands.

    That is why God gave Jesus this commandment to give to you.

    Mark 12:30
    And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
    and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,
    and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    Because that is what it will require of you
    to overcome sin and death.

    To love God
    with all your heart
    your mind
    your soul
    and strength.

    This is why Adam and Eve
    did not receive the free gift of salvation.

    They did not love God enough to believe and obey Him.

    Salvation, in Jesus’ day, had nothing to do with getting to heaven.
    It was all about personal transformation in THIS life.

    The word “salvation” comes from the same root as “salve,” a healing ointment.

    So salvation has to do with healing the wounds of existence.
    And our wounds of existence are many and deep.
    Some of these wounds are inflicted on us, some are the result of our own doing, and some we inflict on others.

    My view is that salvation in the Bible has both a divine and a human aspect: Salvation comes from God, and salvation is something that we experience.

    I think you are trying to talk about God’s grace.

    But if you believe in some set of requirements in order to receive grace, then you are clearly no longer talking about grace.

    “The Father makes his sun to shine on the evil and the good and sends his rain to fall on the righteous and the unrighteous alike.”
    --Matthew 5:45

    My opinion of the Plan of Salvation in a nutshell: For us to become like God/him.
