I saw another puritan board member who would be considered a hyper-Calvinist because he believes we are saved by Christ alone. He does not believe our faith saves us but that we simply experience salvation in time upon faith. It's simply experimental. He posted this... "1. Salvation is by grace alone. 2. Salvation is through faith alone. 3. Salvation is in Christ alone. 4. Salvation, in its entirety, (even the faith by which it is experienced) is the gift of God. 5. This salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone is accomplished entirely without works of any kind on the part of the one who is saved." Don Fortner wrote that in regards to Ephesians 2:8 My question is... how can a hyper-Calvinist understand Ephesians 2:8 in a way that doesn't make it seem like faith is a condition for being eternally saved?
