Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not… « God's Hammer

 The so-called "well meant offer" is an irrational doctrine put forward by neo-Kuyperians and neo-Calvinists.  Basically, the doctrine says that God's revealed will is that all men without exception be saved but God's secret will is that only the elect will be saved.  Unfortunately that has never been the position of the Protestant Reformers in the Calvinist tradition nor is it part of any of the Reformed confessional standards.  In fact, it is what might be called "semi-Arminianism."  The general call of the Gospel is not the same thing as saying that God "desires" to save those whom He has reprobated from before creation.  (Romans 9:11-13; 1 Peter 2:8).
