“ If you do well, ( Cain )
Won’t you be accepted ?? “
— Genesis 4:7
A Discussion and Presentation
of the Glorious Eternal Plan of God
to ETERNALLY SAVE the SOULS
of CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS,
THROUGHOUT RECORDED HISTORY
as GOD HAS RECORDED FOR US
IN HIS BIBLE:
I. Inquiring minds want to know;
Can a Wicked, and Un-REGENERATED
Naturally Born and therefore SINFUL man,
as Cain was,
“Perform Good Works”,
that are ‘ACCEPTABLE’ To GOD.
Remember, these “Good Works” of Cain’s
are “Works” FROM a MAN,
TO THE WORK of ETERNAL SALVATION
being FROM GOD !!
1. Adam was CREATED as a man in Innocence
and had a Sinless Spiritual Condition of his Soul
and when Adam was CREATED Adam had power
to do every good work the law required;
which ALL men, ALL ADAM’S ‘CHILDREN’,
since ADAM’S fall
into a Natural State of SINFULNESS,
“WE” ARE WITHOUT STRENGTH.
“For when we were still
in Due Time Christ Died
for the ungodly.”
ALL Men BORN SINCE ADAM are
in an Un-RE-Generated State of their Sinful Soul,
in Perspective WITH GOD.
IN PERSPECTIVE TO OTHER “MEN”
WE: “Could” and “might” even “do” many things
that are seen to men as “Good”,
which WE AS FALLEN SINNERS WILL Not Do;
such as reading the Scriptures, attending on public worship,
giving to The Cause of Christ, etc.
No doubt, the persons in the parable,
who were invited to the dinner,
“could” have gone to it,
IF they had a will to DO SO,
as well as,
the “FALLEN SIN CURSED MAN”
that did Have A WILL to Go to his farm,
and the other “FALLEN SIN CURSED MAN”
that had A WILL to Go to his merchandise.
Men have an Equal Power, PHYSICALLY = agreed:
IF they had an inclination of their Heart, or a Will,
to go to a place of Divine Worship,
as they do to go to a tavern,
club, race, concert, strip joint, etc.
but it is easy to observe,
that persons often have it in the power of their hands,
when they DO NOT
have it in the power of their hearts,
to do “a good work”;
as a rich man DID NOT give to the poor.
Un-SPIRITUALLY-RE-GENERATED Naturally SINFUL men
are capable of performing “Good Works”,
which are in a Natural and Civil Sense,
( The “Way” their Fellow Sin Cursed “MAN” View them )
though not in an ETERNALLY SINLESS
and HOLY Spiritual Sense, “Good”.
