We are to be as sojourners, not like a mustard seed that grows into a large tree not of its kind. The unsaved tares (Matt. 13.30,39-42) operate in the kingdom of heaven and try to look like the saved wheat but are outside the church-body of Christ.
54 Different Types of Views in Christendom
3 Categories to Compare (2x3x9=54 types)
tripartite = women and men are spirit, soul and body.
bipartite = men and women are spirit (soul) and body.
osas arminian = Man is fallen and can't choose by the flesh, but still has the gift of being made in God's image to choose to activate the gift of faith and be drawn by God. God predestinates by foreknowing our free-choice made in His image: a conditional election, unlimited atonement, resistible grace, for the preservation of the saints.
non-osas arminian = same as osas arminian with one change: a person can lose salvation after being saved.
calvinism = man is totally deprave and can't choose at all. God predestinates by foreknowing who to save without first regard for their choice when he gives the gift of faith causing them to believe and does not save others, thus causing them not to believe: an unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, for perseverance of the saints.
separate rapture (partrib) = before the Tribulation there is a rapture of living overcomer believers who were ready to be received to the throne, and there is a rapture at the start of the last trumpet of the Tribulation.*
pretrib = all believers at the start of the Tribulation are raptured.*
midtrib = all believers at the start of the middle of the Tribulation are raptured.*
prewrath = all believers at the start of the last trumpet of the Tribulation are raptured.*
posttrib = all believers at the end of the last trumpet of the Tribulation are raptured.*
amill = we are in the 1000 years now, but there will be a Tribulation at the end.
postmill = we are in the 1000 years now, but there will be no Tribulation at the end.
preterism = the second coming of Christ occurred at 70 A.D.
partial preterism = the second coming of Christ occurred at 70 A.D., and there will be more second comings of Christ.
* Premillennial = separate rapture, pretrib, midtrib, prewrath and posttrib all teach that Jesus will return in Person to reign on earth from Jerusalem in the Temple for either 1000 literal years or a great amount of time before the earth passes away and the new city and new earth commence.
There is no option for other types such as open theism, claiming God does not have infinite foreknowledge (omniscience) or does not use it, because they are so far askew and not worth considering.
For the three ways of being saved (osas arminian, non-osas arminian, calvinism), only one is right and each is consistent within itself. Of the 5 points being compared (free-choice or total depravity; unlimited atonement or limited atonement; conditional election or unconditional election; resistible grace or irresistible grace; OSAS preserveration of saints or non-OSAS or perseverance of the calvinists), you cannot have two items of one view and three of another view since they would contradict each other. You can't even have one item of one view, and four items of the other view unless it meets the criteria of the 3 different ways of salvation. But even so, only one of those 3 ways of salvation is correct!
Also, there are two kinds of OSAS. OSAS Arminian says you can't lose salvation because the choice you made was forever to fulfill the condition to receive God's gift of eternal life at new birth. Calvinism OSAS says the reason you can never lose salvation is because God made you that way to save you first which causes you to believe and be that way forever.
A fourth category could be added pertaining to ecclesiology with these 4 choices: 1) denom "I of Cephas" or "I of Apollos" corporation; 2) non-denom "I of Christ" congregationalism, exalting the meeting place above the locality; 3) multi-denom "I of Cephas and Apollos" ecumenicalism; and 4) biblocality, "I of Apostles appointing Elders for church cities, towns or remote areas to take care of the church unit." Also, the creation view (gap restoration) may be considered with at least 5 competing views, which brings us to a total of 1080 different types of forums (54x4x5).
