God’s Free Love and Free Grace, Not Free Will

For many years I was curious as to why a person reared as a conservative Calvinist, would become a theological Arminian. For those who are not familiar with those terms, a Calvinist is a Christian influenced by the teaching of the French religious theologian, John Calvin (July 10, 1509 – May 27, 1564), one of… Continue reading God’s Free Love and Free Grace, Not Free Will

Sin causes… Continue reading Believe in the Love of God
