The age old question

Discuss either theological doctrines, ideas about God, or Biblical criticism. I don't want any debates about creation vs evolution.

One thing I think fits is also the fact some people fill like if I'm saying why do I feel like I should question my faith. I mean how do I know I have accepted Jesus and not just goin through the motivations
when you make a commitment you will be born again and your life will chnge, you have religious affections, you will have passion for the commitment to God.

The measure given in NT is always about bearing good fruit. see Galatians 5:22

How do you know if you bear fruits? Also what about the hard questions like predestination? Does God pick who will be saved from the moment they are born?

Fruit just means do you exhibit the qualities of virtue such as compassion love kidkness, if you don;t people will let you know, you have to take stock of yourself.

We can discuss those i questions, some are on going so have obvious answers,Ia not a Calvinist so I;m opposed to predestination,

can you bring some more atheists I want to get the board going again
