Larry Wessels, director of Christian Answers/Christian Debater (BibleQuery org, HistoryCart com & MuslimHope com) debates Steve McCalip, author & webmaster of "KingJamesMan.com," on the subject of WHO did Jesus die for. Bob L. Ross, a leading publisher of C.H. Spurgeon, is the moderator (e-mail: pilgrimpub com). A popular book out is entitled "History's Greatest Lies;" although this book doesn't mention the following it should have: Darwin's Evolution Theory, Global Warming, Muhammad was a prophet of God, the only true "church" is headed by a Roman Pope, etc. Another "greatest lie" would be to say Jesus died for people He did not indeed die for. There are only 3 possibilities: 1. Christ died to save all men therefore all are saved 2. Christ died to save no one in particular (men then must save themselves) or 3. Christ died to save a certain number (who God then actively saves). This debate goes into Biblical detail to answer the question, "Did Jesus Die For Everybody Who Ever Lived?" This is a classic conflict between 2 systems of soteriology, namely, Reformed Theology (Calvinism) which states that men are saved by God's choice, election & grace alone (Romans 9:11 ff, Ephesians 2:8-10, etc.) versus Arminianism (a system formulated by James Arminius) which says men must save themselves by using their "free will" to "elect" God to help them escape the wrath to come. The vast majority of religious organizations today, whether it be Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Roman Catholicism, the Southern Baptist Convention, Methodism, or whatever, claiming some attachment to the Bible, take the Arminian soteriological position. The question remains despite this, what does the scripture teach? This is part 1 of a 4 part series.
