Message Subject Metanoia: What does the word "repentance" really mean in the Bible?
Poster Handle TidesofTruth

What on earth are you talking about? God hardened Pharaoh's heart because he hardened his heart first. The same thing happens now.

Romans 1

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

John 12

37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

2 Thess. 2
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But anyone who wants to be saved can be saved. The choice is up to man, the free gift is offered to all freely.

Rev 22:17
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Calvinism teaches God pre-chooses who is saved and who is damned without any choice on man's part - That is a wicked false doctrine.

From your writings your doctrine seems to be informed by God's word at present held by Fundamental Baptists. Am I right?
