"...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)

    Contagious Joy!

    In the first Church of the Frozen Chosen, one penguin has just learnt that he was predestined to be a 5 point Calvinist from before the foundation of the world, much to the annoyance of the others. - JS

    Either that, or he's a charismatic penguin who happened upon this gathering.

    That's one hyper-Calvinist.

    Hyper? hmmm, not sure about that - the hypers are normally grumpy penguins who never share any good news with others in case they might be non-elect.. with joy like that, I think this penguin would have a hard time keeping the good news to himself. :-)

    Ha! What can one do but stand around and enjoy the first time experience of snow when one comes along late in life?
