Study Questions
  1. What is the traditional Church teaching on Predestination?

  2. According to Paulís teachings in 1 Timothy 2:1-6, does God support the traditional Church teaching on Predestination? What Does God teach and support according to Paul in this passage and Ezekiel 33:11, 2 Peter 3:9 and Romans 5:18?

  3. According to Dale Moody, whenever the teachers of predestination have prevailed in the historical Church, what has always then been the leading result?

  4. Being that this is true, what was the real reason why the teaching on Predestination was so popular and emphasized in the history of the Church?

  5. One of the carry-overs of the teaching of Predestination was infant baptism. Why did they teach and practice this?

  6. Does the Bible support this teaching according to Acts 8:35-37? Under what conditions does it support a person being baptized in water?

  7. When attempting to interpret a passage of Scripture, what principle of interpretation first needs to be applied?

  8. When one reads John 6:44 by itself, a main passage Predestinationists use for their argument, it sounds like Jesus is telling us that only those the Father chooses to bring to Jesus can be saved. However, when one takes this passage in the context of John 6:45 as well, what was Jesus really saying to his target audience, the Jews, and why?

  9. Whether a person knows the Father or not, what did Jesus promise man in John 6:37?

  10. Romans Chapters 9-11 is another section of Scripture that Predestinationists use to support their argument. They cite passages like Romans 9:15-16 where Paul records God saying to Moses that He will have mercy on whom He chooses. In context of Romans 9:6-8, 31-32; and 10:1-4, were the Jews rejected because God chose those who will be saved and those who will be dammed? Why were they rejected and how does this relate to Godís statement that He will have mercy on whom He chooses?

  11. The meaning of the word Predestination in the Greek means literally to set restrictions beforehand. God wants to adopt us as His sons and daughters. According to Ephesians 1:5, however, what are the restrictions that He set up beforehand as to how we could be adopted as His sons and daughters?

  12. How do we come to God through Jesus Christ according to Ephesians 1:13-14?

  13. What is true about our coming to Jesus?

  14. How do we cooperate with the Holy Spirit in bringing this work about in men?
