    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Wanting to be a Christian

The Five Dilemmas of CalvinismCraig R. Brown:

There has never been a person who wanted to be a Christian to whom God said no. The Reformed faith holds that when a person wants to be a Christian, God already has worked in his heart, and Scripture assures us that “he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion” (Phil 1:6).

  1. I just found that you responded to my comment about prayers not being answered. When I say praying for an arm to grow back, that is not off-topic. In fact that is a very important point. You can pray for something you want very much, but the physically impossible will not happen. The possible can happen by random chance, not prayer. Prayer has never held up to actual scientific scrutiny. Never. So unless proven otherwise, in a true experiment with all the controls, I can say prayers are never answered.
