Bold, Evangelistic, Spirit Filled, High Calvinist

Luke 4:18-19 (KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
I am filled with the Holy Spirit and I speak as the Spirit gives me utterance. Acts 2:4
John 15:26-27 (KJV)But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

I am a 'narcissistic* Bapticostal'! I have the best of both worlds; true historical Baptist beliefs (that which the SBC seems to officially despise) and the utterance the Charismatics desire!

The Charismatics and Pentecostals need what the Baptist used to have, 200 years ago, and the Baptist need what they had 200 years ago and what the Charismatics and Pentecostals have now! Don't we all need the Spirit and the Word?

Amen. It has been said an ideal Christian should have;
The Mind of Ahistorical Baptist;
The heart of a Pentecostal;
The feet of a Russellite.

by the way, enabling grace is implanted in Regeneration [Psalm 110;3] it is not, nor is it preparation for Regeneration [See my blog]. Dr. Paul W. Foltz

Thanks Paul well said

Did you read my conclusion to the SBC poll? Enabling grace is regeneration, quickening. Ephesians 2:1-10

There is no possibility for any work of cooperation with the Spirit of Grace. He regenerates by the free unhindered will of the Father' good pleasure.

At one moment we were dead in sin and the very next moment we were alive with Christ. v.5 There is no sequence of events between those moments. The last undividable moment of a dead state and the next undividable moment of the live state.

There is no possiblity of wedging human choice between the two. We are truly the Father's workmanship!

I stand with Gill and reject Fuller's compromises. Ryland's father said it best. Sit down young man, God will...

Excerpts from "Cognitive Therapy of Personality Disorders," pp. 243-246:

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

The overinflated self image generates rage when disappointment occurs (check), and intermittent reinforcement maintains the self-image distortions (see "Straight Path" and "Folks Folly").


The narcissistic theme of self-involvement has evolved from an explanation for masturbation (while doing research) to a disorder of arrested personality development (check) to a personality impaired by maladaptive beliefs or an inflated self-image (check and check).


According to self-verification theory, self-esteem is the motivating force behind feedback seeking (Swann, 1990). Across a broad range of contexts, individuals with an inflated self-image tend to create and maintain a positive illusory bias where they solicit confirming positive feedback ("many are reading but few are commenting. Why?"), avoid self concept change (check), place uncomfortable demands on others (like dead men and their widows), and deal with dissonance via hostility and aggression (check).

Gee, sounds a lot like you, Chuck!

You better be happy aboutcashing the checks I have sent you for your amateur counseling, cause I have stopped payment on all them because they are not helping.

I have relied on the Holy Spirit for my counseling and I have been foolishly thinking you would be some help. How foolish of me!!!

So tear up the checks, they are worthless.
