There is no predestination unto salvation in the Bible

    Predestination is never, ever, ever, that of lost man unto salvation.
    Predestination is always that of a saved man unto a glorified Christ's-image-bearing resurrection body.
    That's what you get if you let the scriptures speak for themselves, in context, and with defining cross-references, without looking at them through any theologically-coloured glasses.

    This study proves, diligently, and scripturally, the following:
    1. No verse ever clearly specifies when predestination (not election) occurs
    2. There is no predestination unto salvation in the Bible
    3. Predestination is always unto adoption (not salvation)
    4. Adoption is the redemption of the body (not the soul)
    5. Adoption occurs at the resurrection
    6. Adoption is a blessing accompanying salvation but not salvation itself
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It's wonderfully refreshing to encounter intelligence around salvation, Kingdom, adoption.

    You are bringing out qualities in God's work in us. Our adoption begins now, but will be clinched if we haven't thrown it away by preventing others acceding.

    Proverbs 21: 10-31, Is. 55, 58, 61, feeding of the thousands, James, Paul re. crowns, talents. God's pyramid scheme is the only one worth trusting and the only one Christians don't trust!

    Does an infant who is adopted choose his parents?

    The analogy doesn't stand because, in the Bible, it's the body that is adopted, after salvation. It's not the spirit upon salvation.

    Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
