V. SERMONIC THEME: “BEFORE”

INTRODUCTION:

I submit to you this afternoon that the word “Predestination” as seen in Romans 8:29 has been the source of Christian debate for hundreds of years. In fact, the subject of “Predestination” has been the reason for major divisions in Protestantism. Generally speaking, most Protestants are theologically classified as either Calvinist from John Calvin – the founder of the Presbyterian Church or Arminians – from a Dutch Theologian who lived in the 17th Century. The Arminian theology is espoused particularly by most Baptist Churches, the Church of God in Christ, the Assembly of God, and other Pentecostal Churches in America.
