A Five Point JESUS-ist!

I am a five point JESUS-ist, and I firmly believe in each of the five points of JESUS-ism:

1. TOTAL DEPRAVITY: Matthew 7:11: If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children . . . .

Mark 7:21-23: For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.

John 6:44: No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.

2. UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION: John 15:16: You did not choose me, but I chose you . . . .

Luke 10:21: In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.”

John 17:9: I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.

3. LIMITED ATONEMENT: John 10:11, 26: I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep . . . but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.

Mark 10:45: For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

4. IRRESISTIBLE GRACE: John 6:37: All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.

Luke 14:23: And the master said to the servant, “Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled.”

5. PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS: John 10:28-29: I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

John 5:24: Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

John 6:39-40: And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
