One thought on “Jesus Didn’t Want to Die

  1. olivianus

    At 49:49 the typical aspects of Jesus’ choosing to lay down his life for us are reflected upon. He admits the parallell. At 53:10 ish he admits the choice of Christ to die for us as an exact parallell to the believer. This is synergism. I believe that in my regeneration I am passive but in my conversion I am active. There is a synergism after the work of monergism. How can a Reformed Baptist or Hoeksemite believe this? Remember, in Monothelitism, the Divine Will is the only will in Christ which is heresy! Our Salvation on the Monothelite view was UNCONDITIONAL whether the human will, willed to die for our sins or not he was compelled and forced by the Divine Will. On the Orthodox view the human will of Christ submitted itself freely to the Divine Will and it did so with great agony. In Gethsemane Christ sweats drops of blood and says, “Not my will, but thine be done”. TWO WILLS! Reformed Baptist and Hoeksemite Hypercalvinism makes salvation unconditional, the Covenant of Grace unconditional, allows no Permissive Decrees (directly contrary to WCF 6.1), and no Free Offer of the Gospel contingent on Man’s Agency. Monthelitism. Monothelitism means “One Will”, and this is the Divine Will. People leave so called “Reformed” Churches for Eastern Orthodoxy because of this issue quite frequently and I am about sick of having to re-eductate x-Hyper Calvinists in Eastern Orthodox Churches.

    I ask sir, where is your synergism in your covenant of grace?
