Discussion for Ephesians 3:11

  • Anthony for verse 11
    As a Gentile believer who had no hope in this world it is heartening to know that God had before teh foundation of the world made a provision for us. Verse 10 brings a smile when one sees that God wanted to show the Angelic beings His Manifold Wisdom as revealed in His Eternal Purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord. God would have ALL man to be saved through the Grace that is in our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen to that
  • G Holliday for verse 11
    Mankind is inherently an immoral entity guided by the lust of power and control over others. God kicked the devil out of his Kingdom because of such lust. God never meant for mankind to stay on the earth forever. His eternal purpose to have mankind voluntarily worship him and love him as the living God will be fulfilled. However, most of mankind will be banished along with Satin according to the Bible. Amen
