It is time for people to make some hard choices. What do we want the church to be in the future?
"By the decree of God, for the manifestations of his glory, some men and angels are predestinated unto everlasting life, and others foreordained to everlasting death. These angels and men thus predestinated and foreordained are particularly and unchangeably designed, and their number is so certain and definite that it can not be either increased or diminished..."        Most influential in spreading this view has been John Calvin (1509-1564). His theology, known as Calvinism, which still wields a strong influence in the religious world, holds that God, from eternity has predetermined every individual who will ever be saved or lost, and absolutely denies the free will of man, that is, if you are among the "non-elect" you cannot be saved, and if you are among the "elect" you cannot be lost.

"I want you to know that I appreciate your efforts and work in Seek The Old Paths. In a day and time when there is such a great apostasy in the brotherhood, and yet the world must be reached with the Gospel, I believe it is important to have as many good and reliable resources as possible to both refute error and reach the lost. I consider your paper such a resource. May the Lord bless your work in as much as you proclaim and defend his Truth" ...James Nash, Rising Star, TX. "Just a note to say how much I appreciate Seek The Old Paths. I'm writing to see if it would be possible to get a copy of #1 Editorial on Kingism. I have the ones 2-6.

Many churches in this area are becoming very liberal. How sad" ...Jack Carter, Farmington, AR. "We have been receiving Seek The Old Paths since Sep/96.
