    Coffeehouse: How should the asssurance of a Christian's future affect the way we behave now?

    I've been slacking on doing the coffehouse questions here on the forum and it's been for a couple reasons. Sometimes I don't have time to respond and I kinda feel dumb starting the thread without adding my two cents. Plus, TBH, I was hoping others would start the threads. Smile

    Anyway, I think this one is a good one. I was looking forward to Paeter talking about this. Yes, Paeter, count me as one of the ones who was disappointed you didn't dig deeper into election and free will. This is one of the most exciting doctrines to me and was looking forward to hearing what you think about it.

    In answer to the coffeehouse question, I will simply say that we behave according to way Christ would want us to as a result of our salvation, not in order to gain salvation. It is a result of our new nature that we are given at the point of salvation. This is quite different than other religions as you pointed out in your podcast.

    As always, more to be said, but low on time. I'm eager to hear others' contributions. Smile
