The Scripture passage to which you are referring is speaking about God's thoughts in relation to the thoughts of natural, unregenerate man. Now I would agree that God's thoughts are not your thoughts. But if God chooses to regenerate you, then God's thoughts will be your thoughts in the area of the gospel.

The Bible is the epitome of pure logical reasoning. There is nothing more logical than the Bible. There are no contradictions. Lost people cannot understand the logic of the Bible; when God regenerates someone, He shows them the logic of the Word through the work of Jesus Christ, the Supreme Logos (LOGIC).

The ONLY way to understand the Bible is through God-given logical reasoning.

<<Could I suggest you don't call yourself Calvinists?>>

I challenge you to show me one place where I have called myself a Calvinist.

<<Belonging to a cult does not neccesarily mean that you are lost. I know of a lady in the Jehowa Witness group that through God's amazing grace still held to the beliefs that she learned as a child. Now I am not at all tolerant towards the JW but even they could not take that lady out of Jesus's hand. The trouble with cults are that they are detrimental to the kingdom of God.>>

Wow. Now I'm beginning to know where you guys are coming from. You believe that a woman sitting under the preaching of the false gospel of the JWs was regenerate. That tells me a lot. It's very easy now for me to see why you would say that Arminians are regenerate. Wow.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Guess you could say the same thing re: a Muslim:

"This lady's sin, ie to join Islam - probably the worst she could do - did not cancel God's eternal election. God protected
her from Muslim preaching and teaching. Maybe she is the only saved Muslim."

Absolutely ridiculous and wicked.
