â€œBut,â€ say others, â€œGod elected them on the foresight of their faith.â€ Now, God gives faith, therefore he could not have elected them on account of faith, which he foresaw. There shall be twenty beggars in the street, and I determine to give one of them a shilling but will any one say that I determined to give that one a shilling, that I elected him to have the shilling, because I foresaw that he would have it? That would be talking nonsense. In like manner to say that God elected men because he foresaw they would have faith, which is salvation in the germ, would be too absurd for us to listen to for a moment. 96,
Yes, those are true conclusions, obtained by valid arguments with true premises. (Your third example is not a proper syllogism.)
Throughout the centuries the ascended Christ has given gifts to His Church. These gifts are men - living, walking, breathing, imperfect men - great preachers and teachers of the Church (Eph 9:7-67). Not one of them individually nor even all of them collectively are infallible, but I am a fool if I do not stop to at least consider what insight they have to teach me.
Always keep in mind when trying new hair treatments that what

When men are fallen, and become sinful, God by His sovereignty has a right to determine about their redemption as He pleases. He has a right to determine whether He will redeem any or not. He might, if he had pleased, have left all to perish, or might have redeemed all. Or, he may redeem some, and leave others and if He doth so, He may take whom He pleases, and leave whom He pleases. To suppose that all have forfeited his favor, and deserved to perish, and to suppose that he may not leave any one individual of them to perish, implies a contradiction because it supposes that such a one has a claim to God''s favor, and is not justly liable to perish which is contrary to the supposition.
66. "Since it is no longer permissible to disparage any single faith or creed, let us start disparaging all of them. A religion is a belief system with no basis in reality whatever. Religious belief is without reason and without dignity, and its record is near-universally dreadful."
But in addition, most monotheists may reject other gods because their religion states that there’s only one God. That’s clearly not the reason atheists reject all gods.
