Sandwich review: BBQ Pulled Pork by Ginsters



The official description for this sandwich is:
"British pulled pork with BBQ sauce, ranch dressing and fresh spinach leaves on white bread"
'Pulled pork' is the current culinary obsession, so it was only a matter of time before it turned up in sandwiches too.  I gave this limited edition offering from Ginsters a try, and found it to be overall quite pleasant.

The pork meat was tender and flavoursome (something which not all sandwich meat manages), and the BBQ sauce had a nice balance of sweet, yet tangy.  I also enjoyed the inclusion of the spinach leaves, which lived up to description of 'fresh' and added a crunchy salad texture to the sandwich (again, sandwich salad leaves have often reached a 'limp and wilted' state by the time they are consumed - not so, in this case).

The only element of this sandwich which disappointed was the ranch dressing - which I could barely taste at all.  I saw no sign of this as ate the sandwich - this may, however, have been something of a blessing in disguise, as it seemed a somewhat incongruous addition to an otherwise fairly cohesive sandwich recipe, and I am not sure what exactly it would have added, had it been present.

Overall, I enjoyed this sandwich, and I would buy it again.

PREDESTINED FOR WHAT? BY STEVE FINNELL

Are men predestined? Yes, but predestined for what?


Those who, believe that Jesus is the Christ, are predestined for salvation.


Men are not predestined by God "to believe" in order that they may be saved. All men have free-will to believe or to reject Jesus as the Christ.


Ephesians 1:11-14 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation---having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory.


The Ephesians were sealed with the Holy Spirit because they believed; not because they were preselected "to believe" in order to be saved.


DOES THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER TEACH PRESELECTION FOR SALVATION? No, it does not!


Luke 8:11 "Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.


Luke 8:12 Those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they will not believe and be saved.


Did God send the devil to take the word from their heart because He did not preselect them for salvation? Of course not. Neither did God send the devil to deceive Eve, so Adam and Eve would sin against Him.


Luke 8:13 Those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away.


Does God let some believe for a while; then cause them to fall away because He did not preselect them for salvation? No, He does not.


Luke 8:14 The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones have have heard , and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.


Is it logical that God would have the gospel preached to those He has already selected to burn in hell?


8:15 But the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, hold fast, and bear fruit with perseverance.


Salvation is achieved by an honest and good heart. God does preselect babies in the womb and transplant a good an honest heart in them, so they might be saved.


ALL MEN HAVE THE FREE-WILL TO JOIN "THE PREDESTINED CLUB."


ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE HAVE BEEN PREDESTINED FOR SALVATION.


GOD DOES NOT PRESELECT "THE PREDESTINED."


ALL MEN HAVE THE FREE-WILL TO JOIN "THE PREDESTINED CLUB FOR SALVATION!"
