All of which refer to the same thing basically: the distinction between God and His moral sovereignty over man on the one hand, and man and his unregenerate rebellious moral "autonomy" on the other hand.

If I read my Bible correctly, God's goal is to establish His dominion throughout all the earth, and we His people are a part of that mission. That is after all the Great Commission: to disciple the nations, teaching them to obey Christ. Unfortunately we've been too busy trying to get people into the pew and their pocketbook into the collection plate that we have for the most part forgotten our purpose.

Since selling salvation became a real business, the model just won’t work. After all preaching to the lost doesn’t pay very well.

So the thing that makes profits in our churches (which are supposedly non-profits aka 501c3) is to re-save the lost. Wash, rinse, repeat. It is not what the Apostle Paul did. But it builds buildings, and wealth.

But they aren’t peddling the gospel. They would NEVER do that. Sarcasm alert.
