"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Former Synergist Embraces Calvinism

    This weekend I received the following encouraging email from a visitor which he has graciously allowed me to share with you



    I have always thought Calvinism was wrong, I could not see how it could make sense!

    I have just read:
    What Do Arminianism and Hyper-Calvinism Share in Common?
    by John W. Hendryx

    Is it God's Desire for All Men to Be Saved? by John Hendryx

    I must repent in dust and ashes!!!

    This FINALLY makes sense to me.

    Thank You John.

    Now I might have to find a reformed church, do you know any in southern Connecticut.

    Great stuff! I don't know much about Connecticut, however I enjoy reading the weekly devotionals of Al Baker pastor of Christ Community PCA in West Hartford. There website is :


    Glory to God. Knowing ultimately it must be God's power and grace to reveal, instruct, and change our mind and heart, so as such professions are not merely mental philosophies, but truly born of the Spirit. May God use us both and all, to call all men to repent, and then glorify and credit God when He regenerates a soul, and even glorify God when He has been pleased not to regenerate a soul.

    It is exciting to hear testimony of who someone who has been brought to credit God for saving grace.
