A Radical Transformation
""But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:4-7 Not only did we need grace for forgiveness but we need grace for life. It's simply grace from start to finish. * Why do people fear God? * You said that Adam and Eve freely ate of all the trees, including the tree of life. This is not so according to Genesis 3:23, 24. * How are we to understand predestination?
