Mis reference

In the Luther/Erasmus debate there is a reference to Eccl 15:14-17, which is not existent. Unfortunately the text is not quoted so it's difficult to locate it.

Please supply the correct reference.

Regards


Dear friend

Terribly sorry about that, I did not write the article but noted that mis-reference, spending some time to try to work it out, but to no avail. I guess that it would be best to remove it, still I was hoping  someone may be able to find the right one, well, that is the story.

Grace and Peace to you

Further to this matter, a friend just sent me this:

"Erasmus quoted from the apocrypha book Ecclesiasticus 15:14-17:

http://www.hope.edu/academic/religion/bandstra/BIBLE/SIR/SIR15.HTM

Hence the invalid verses are because they are quotes from apocrypha books."

The notion of Erasmus on free will comes mostly from the Apocrypha’s books, especially these verses in Ecclesiasticus 15:14-17:

"14 It was he who created humankind in the beginning, and he left them in the power of their own free choice.

 15  If you choose, you can keep the commandments, and to act faithfully is a matter of your own choice.

 16  He has placed before you fire and water; stretch out your hand for whichever you choose.

 17  Before each person are life and death, and whichever one chooses will be given"

Grace and Peace to you

Thanks for your response. By the way, I'm also a non-cessationist TULIPer, introduced to Calvinism by Matt Slick articles on Rom 9.
