Jesus had to go through Samaria (Jn 4-4)

Sean Stewart View Post

Did Jesus foreknow what He would find there?

He decided to save her. Her so-called husbands weren’t husbands at all (Rom. 7:2, 3) [John the Baptist got his head chopped off for pointing out illegal marriages (Mark 6:17, 18, Matt. 14:3–12)]. She had looked for love in all the wrong places and needed a savior.

...Could the woman have gone away and refused to believe Him? Others did.

Of course she could have. She believed; however, and was saved. God gives everyone a choice to live or die (Jn 3:16). He won't demand love. John MacArthur says that that leaves the choice up to each individual. Well, of course it does. We know his will--it's for each person to be saved (2 Pe 3:9).

John 3:16 doesn't say God gives everyone a chance.

Your love is conditional. God's love is unconditional. Were you anywhere on this list?:

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Co 6:9-10).

[He won't demand love.] I can't find a verse in the Bible that says that.

Are you a robot? You had no choice but to love God? Sure that love is real :Shimei: or do you just assume you've been chosen because you're so lovely? :o

[John MacArthur says that that leaves the choice up to each individual.] You know MacArthur is a Calvinist, right?

His view originated in Greek paganism not the bible. :dizzy:

Do you have a quote that shows he allegedly "says that"?

In his latest podcast (

2 Pet. 3:9 isn't about "every single individual".

Just you--because you're so lovely :o and your heart was not wicked like those other folks (Jer 17:9).

Unconditional does not mean universal.

Then you'll need Jn 3:16 to go away. Paul was chief among sinners. He and I can argue about that when I get to heaven. He got saved.

Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered and ate little boys. He got saved.
:idunno:Do you think you're better than Jeffrey Dahmer? :Shimei:

God is allowed to choose to love some…...

He loves everyone he created (Gen. 9:6).

"You can't stop him from loving you." ~ J. Vernon McGee

…[Were you anywhere on this list? 1 Co 6:9-10] [Y]our dodging is somewhat annoying.

It's a yes or not question. :chz4brnz:Were you on that list?

"A man can believe in total depravity and never have any sense of it for himself at all." ~ A.W. Tozer

Asking me worthless rhetorical questions…...

2 Co 13:5

… I had no choice but to love God.

You're not saved. I can tell because his word has no place in you (Jn 8:37). I'm sorry you believed a Greek pagan church.

[MacArthur] Can you quote what he exactly said…...

No. There's no more time. Besides, if I had to listen to it again, I'd become ill (Mk 2:17). He's not hard to find--might want to start in a cemetery.

Do you really think that's a good teaching style?

God will let me know. :juggle: I'll be home soon (Ro 14:4, Ps 105:15). :rapture:

I love John 3:16.

If you love it for yourself, then you’ll love it for others. Get to know God. He loves all people not just darling elites like yourself.

[Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered and ate little boys. He got saved. Do you think you’re better than Jeffrey Dahmer?] You seem to be one of the few who accepts Dahmer's salvation.

I’m not a homosexual, serial killing cannibal. Still, I know that I’m no better than Jeffrey Dahmer. I’m a sinner saved by grace.

I never claimed that I was better than Jeffrey Dahmer.

Are you? :chz4brnz:

[Were you on that list? 1 Co 6:9-10] Your question was irrelevant….Your mission was not to waste my time asking me twenty questions.

When you become as humble as Jeffrey Dahmer, you can become a Christian.

Theo1689 View Post

I have never claimed, and do not consider myself, to be an "elite". That's simply mockery on your part, and mockery is not an attribute of a true Christian.

Have you ever met a believer? :juggle: 1 Ki 18:27

Between the two of us, I'm not the one having a problem being humble.

You hope to be like my brother, Jeffrey Dahmer, one day. We’re all pulling for you. :thumb:

Christ will save me regardless of your opinion.

He has to. He saw the yellow streak up and down your back. :idunno:Not sure why you had to do that thing called life (Ge 22:12, Ps 11:4, Mal 1:3). :dizzy:
