In order to highlight the difference of literal and interpretation with spiritual discernment let me give you a comparison. Remember this quote: “corporations are people(Romney)” and the Bible states “man is created in the image of God”. In both man is crucial.
Against the above let me explain the gospel according to God the Father and the Son. By comparing Jesus Christ as the key to explain Time of his Father with the earth time of his ministry and the world shall we say Gospel of the Father is Will and disposition while that of the Son is fulfillment of his Will? Predestination holds a different significance since we are comparing God as Thought and God as its fulfillment. Predestination consequently is made gospel of God and of Christ as one and the same. One is Good News in terms of Power and Wisdom the other Good News unto salvation.
When Mitt said, ‘Corporations are people he meant profit. While people think of work what they are doled out is not what 1 percenters are collecting. Inequality is the result of Corporate Czar thinking different from what the people expect for their labor. Thus two gospels have no comparison. Does such a gospel of Capitalism make man as the image of God a reality? Of course not.
Spiritual discernment is the work of the indwelling Holy Spirit in a believer. With which we need see the Bible as God Document. Being inspired of God is while reading the word of God. God is Will and his Gospel is of Power and Wisdom. It is Good News since He sent his only begotten Son to save the world. So whosoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. It is same as the Gospel of the Son since a believer is adopted in the Family of Special Relationship as though foreordained. Predestination works through faith since Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega. We have passed from condemnation and are deemed blessed. This is the gospel of Good News. whereas the Gospel of Power and Wisdom of Good is same as Gospel of the Son unto salvation. Faith means according to the principle of Association we are hearing the voice of the Lord.
It is obvious that time of the believer through Jesus Christ is reconciled with God’s Time.
Calvin proposed Limited Atonement. That is Jesus shedding of blood on the cross works for some and for some it doesn’t. He explained God’s ways and His Will with worldly wisdom. He limited Power and Wisdom of God with his scale. Why did he apply his power and wisdom drawn from his times and not that of the Son? His doctrine of limited Atonement underscores the problem.
Making a doctrinal statement ‘atonement of Jesus works for some and for some it doesn’t’ is not a simple error. Doesn’t it make salvation of God a mockery? Calvinism brought into mainstream of God’s people the present day golden calf. Prosperity Theology is another name. You tell me what Promised Land are they looking for?
