Calvinism Is Heretical

Friends,
I am finding that within Christianity there is an evil doctrine that is being not only tolerated, but now glorified above the Scriptures. It is called Calvinism. Many men in the pulpit have been schooled in this doctrine and they are quickly seeping into all mainline churches. It is time for us all to examine this, expose its errors and blasphemies, and root it out, for it is not true Christianity.

Calvinists are dangerous to the body of Christ because differently than those such as Mormons, Muslims, or atheists, they use the very Scriptures we use –those beautiful inspired words of the Most High God– and then twist them, defaming God and confusing those who are trying to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Calvinists teach a different god. They teach that God randomly picks some humans to be saved and others to be tortured in Hell forever. They teach that God has all power to save these condemned souls, but does not do so merely because their damnation brings Him the most glory. They deny that the salvation extended through Jesus’ death and resurrection covers ALL who, by their own free will, repent and believe. Instead, they teach that salvation is brought to the few only because God randomly picks those few. In this, they teach a different way of salvation.

Friends, when a group teaches a doctrine that is not in Scripture, especially that which concerns God’s attributes and way of salvation, they are deemed heretical. Why is Calvinism not being exposed for what it is –heretical?

God is good. He is compassionate, merciful, and loving. He is not willing that any perish. (2 Peter 3:9) He has provided a way of escape to ALL (1 John 2:2 & 1 Tim. 2:3-6), and that way is not by random selection, but through repentance and belief for “whosoever will.” Therefore, ALL, even those without the Gospel in their native language, are given the ability to look about them, see God’s “divine nature” (Rom. 1:19,20) revealed in creation (Ps. 19:1-4), and attempt to seek Him. (Acts 17:27) And God says that all who seek Him with their whole heart will find Him. (Jer. 29:13,14) This, to the Calvinist, is a useless endeavor because they say that those selected for damnation never will seek Him anyway, and those selected for salvation needn’t do so either –since their salvation is already a guaranteed election. Thus, the Calvinist makes nonsense out of so many Scriptures as they hold fast to their wrong interpretations of their few pet verses they take out of context.

Besides the gift of free choice, God has also graciously given to everyone a conscience by which to make right choices –to do good and seek truth– though yes, many suppress this because of their love for sin. God has given us the ability to be convicted by His wooing Holy Spirit, but He will not force His will onto anyone. God can do anything, but He will never violate His nature. Because of this, when the Calvinist says that God foreordains all actions, words, events –everything– he displays his inability to reason logically if he does not also admit that he is saying that God then DOES evil acts. Because if none of us can make choices, then it is God who holds us all by puppet strings, we are the puppets, and He is the one who moves the strings that cause the evil. No, this is defaming God, calling God a violator of His own attributes of holiness, mercy, and love; for one who DOES evil, IS evil. Thus the Calvinist blasphemes God!

Friends, be assured that Scripture does inform us of a God –the God– who is more merciful, loving, and kind than any of us can fathom. And that He is holy, which means He can never do one thing evil or wrong, He does not take pleasure in evil (Ps. 5:4), nor does He create that He may torture in order to bring Himself glory. This god that the Calvinists have made up, is just that –at best– a god of their wicked imaginations. At worst, they are actually worshipping a demon-god, who “masquerades as an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11:14)

Please read the Scriptures carefully. And start exposing this heretical doctrine of Calvinism in your church.

Sincerely,
Rachel
