Comments Off on Sinners’ Gain from Christ’s Reward

Christ’s reward is not dependent upon man or any supposed freewill decision of man. What do I mean by that?

You do not believe because you are not part of my flock. – John 10:26 Last Friday’s post Atheists Hate Jesus, but Some Don’t Realize It has created quite the stir in the comment section.  Many Atheists have commented asking many questions about “the Christian God” (as they say), but the answers given have not […]
