AN EARTHQUAKE REDEMPTION – Part 2

AN EARTHQUAKE REDEMPTION – Part 2

Listen:

A REAL DEATH FOR SIN, FOR EVERYONE, OR JUST A FEW ELECT? 

If ALL have sinned and ALL come short of the glory of God, then Jesus Christ must have died for ALL mankind, and not just for a select few, unless of course, the elect are the only ones who sin and have sinned, which is preposterous, to say the least. MacArthur continued in this dastardly vain tone of erroneous statements when he tried to explain why there is a heaven and a hell.

AN EARTHQUAKE REDEMPTION – Part 1

AN EARTHQUAKE REDEMPTION – Part 1

Listen:

One of the most poignant and beautiful passages in Scripture, despite the devastating earthquake that shook the prison where Paul and Silas had been incarcerated for their witness of the Gospel of redemption through Jesus Christ, is in Acts 16.

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? (Acts 16:30).

It was no ordinary earthquake. It shook the foundations of the prison so that not only the prison doors were slammed open, but even the chains that shackled the prisoners to their cells were miraculously loosened.

John Piper Debates A.W. Tozer

John Piper debates A.W. Tozer in defence of TULIP

John Piper made nine videos in defense of TULIP and Calvinism which can be viewed on his site “Desiring God.” In response to the Calvinists’ unbiblical view of God’s sovereignty an ex-Calvinist, Leighton Flowers, Professor of Theology at Dallas Baptist University, Director of Youth Evangelism for Texas Baptists and a local teaching pastor, made this excellent audio. The music itself is not my cup of tea. However, it does not diminish the value of his message in anyway.  Leighton Flowers succeeds in his exposure of the hypocrisy of the Calvinistic view of God’s sovereignty.

Soul Winning is Foolishness

crownSoul Winning is Foolishness

This will probably be the shortest post I have ever written and many of you may sigh a sigh of relief because you are not particularly fond of long and drawn-out posts.

During my habitual surfing of certain Christian blogs (some of them claim to be Christian but are not), I read of a certain pastor who wrote to another certain pastor that “soul winning” is foolishness. Yes, you heard me correctly. SOUL WINNING IS FOOLISHNESS, he said with unashamed boldness. The person who said this either hates the Gospel of God or is completely ignorant of what the Gospel (Good News) entails.

Free Will

Free WillWHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAINT’S GROWTH IN HOLINESS AND SANCTIFICATION – GOD ONLY OR GOD AND MAN?

I have heard it said on numerous occasions on the internet that those who adhere to the doctrine of free will (also known as Arminians by Calvinists) are the worst kind of idolaters imaginable and – wait for it – inescapably on their way to hell. But wait a sec.

How can Calvinists say that sin, of which idolatry is the worst kind, is the determinative factor in sending people to hell when they actually believe that reprobation (non-election) is the sole determinative factor? Sin is something anyone can and may repent of AND receive forgiveness AND ultimately go to heaven.

Predestination and election unto damnation, on the other hand, is something no one can repent of. The reprobate’s fate is sealed. They will go to hell whether they like it or not OR whether they believe in free will or not OR whether they have sinned or not because God has ordained and assigned them to hell on the basis of his sovereign choice and because it pleases Him. So, for Calvinists to say that free willy idolaters (including Arminians) are going to hell because they are committing the worst kind of sin imaginable (idolatry), is not only a gross misnomer but hypocrisy that woefully stretches to the ends of the abyss. You may already have seen this on the INTERNET:-

The Modern-Day Pharisees: Calvinists

Calvinists Modern Day PhariseesTHE MODERN-DAY PHARISEES: CALVINISTS

Pharisees – “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Matthew 15:8-9)

An article (sermon), worthy to be read with keen interest and no less acute attention, recently appeared on the Internet. It deals with the classic parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Jesus told in Luke 18 to illustrate the dreadfulness of self-righteousness.

As I was reading the article I noticed how the author, who is a staunch Calvinist, unwittingly impeached Calvinism with Pharisee-ism. Lo and behold, he even admitted that the Pharisees believed in election, predestination and limited atonement. That alone, by his own admission, proves that Calvinism and Pharisee-ism hinge on three of the most important elements in Reformed Theology.

To kick off my article I would like to begin with this particular camaraderie between Pharisee-ism and Calvinism.

Does God Hate Sinners?

Does God HATE Sinners?

NEW: PLEASE READ THE ADDENDUM AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE

In their zeal to defend God’s sovereignty many blogists have joined renowned Calvinists in their campaign against the so-called non-elect by emphatically declaring that Christians should hate non-believers (non-elect sinners). Before you read this article I suggest that you first read an open letter John Pedersen wrote to one of these more renowned Calvinists questioning his view on 2 Corinthians 5:21. Christ was not made sin in the sense of becoming a sinner or taking on Himself the character of a sinner. It simply means  that He, being without sin and perfectly spotless, was treated like a sinner by his Father. Their explanation of this passage reminds one of the Word of Faith preachers’ blasphemous remark that Jesus took on Himself the character of Satan. Mr Pedersen eventually received an answer from the Calvinist who teaches that Christians (Calvinists) should hate the non-elect.

I received an answer from  . . . . . . . . .  :

Dear Mr Pedersen,

Enjoy yourself. I hope your delusions give you great satisfaction.

RC Sproul – Don’t meddle with the Westminster Confession of Faith

Westminster-Confession RC sproulDon’t meddle with the Westminster Confession of Faith,

Especially the very first section which deals with God’s eternal decrees.   Chapter 3 “Of God’s Eternal Decree” (the Westminster Confession of Faith) begins as follows:

 I. God from all eternity did by the most and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass…

III. By the decree of God, for the manifestation of his glory, some men and angels are predestinated unto everlasting life, and others foreordained to everlasting death.

http://www.creeds.net/Westminster/c03.htm

Please listen very carefully how Dr. RC Sproul, a very devout and staunch Calvinist, used the above confession to humiliate 50 Arminian students.  [DTW note:  We here at DTW are not Arminian (aka Methodist), we believe in Eternal Security.]

What it Really Means to be Elected, Chosen, and Predestinated – The Biblical Truth

Elected, Chosen, and Predestinated

By Steven M. McCalip

What It Means to Be “Elected”

You are “elected” “THROUGH sanctification of the Spirit” and the application of Jesus’ blood on your soul. That does not happen before you get saved. That does not happen eons ago when you supposedly were the elect. This scripture says you become elect through these things, and this contradicts the Calvinists’ main teaching who say you were elect before those things. You were not. Not one whit according to Peter:

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 1 Peter 1:2

John MacArthur’s Unanswerable Questions?

question-mark_thumb

John MacArthur’s Unanswerable Questions?

This is probably the most profound and “spiritual” (and most hilarious) thing one of the most distinguished and high-profile preachers of our day has said this century. (Read here.)

John MacArthur said the following when a little kid asked him one of the most important questions there is to be asked, and for that matter, ought to be asked by every sound thinking adult who knows how to use his brains effectively.

Question:
[A very young Child]: I listened to your sermon last Sunday, and I was wondering, why didn’t God choose everybody to be saved? [Tom’s comment: “Kids seem to listen more intently to sermons than adults.”)

Free Will Under Attack (Again?) – Part 1

Free Will-ismTo be (free will) or not to be (no free will), now that aint such a tough question after all, is it?

The question whether man has a free will to choose for or against God and decide for himself whether he wants to resist and reject or accept and receive the message of the cross of Christ as the only means for his salvation (1 Corinthians 1:18), has been a bone of contention for many centuries.

Calvinists in particular must of necessity and at all cost uphold their anti-free will doctrine because the slightest admission that God has endowed all men with the freedom of choice and the ability to choose between good and evil will immediately and permanently destroy Calvinism.

I had the pleasure of meeting a few eminent Calvinists at a debate between William Lane Craig and a so-called “Nuwe Hervormer” in Pretoria a few years ago, who are by far some of the most outspoken against free willism in South Africa today (They hate my guts for loving His Truth). Their extreme bludgeoning  ideas have incited them to associate free will with the beast in Revelation 13.

Calvinism a Heretical Doctrine – That’s What the Bible Says!

CalvinismNote:  Articles posted by DTW are not an endorsement of the author, their website, ministry or any links therein. Readers are cautioned to use discernment at all times and test everything by the Word of God. 

[DTW note: Please note that Prof Johan Malan makes distinction between Hyper Calvinism and Moderate Calvinism.  There is no such thing, you can’t be ‘hyper’ Elect and ‘moderately’ Elect.  Calvinists believe they are Elect, full stop.  Calvinism is Calvinism. You can’t pull apart the petals of TULIP and have a 1 point, 2 point or 3 point Calvinist;  all the petals are intertwined and based around Limited Atonement (Predestination).

A warning  as well that the Prof Malan believes that you can lose your salvation: Prof Johan Malan – A Gospel of Works – Losing your Salvation (Part 1)  and  Prof Johan Malan – A Gospel of Works – Losing your Salvation (Part 2)  and he also believes in the false teaching of Lordship salvation Prof Johan Malan – A Gospel of Works – The Error of Lordship Salvation (Part 3)  This forms part of the Holiness movement, where you work really hard at being really holy through your own strength, instead of relying on the Holy Spirit for your sanctification.   

Prof Malan believes in PERSEVERANCE of the Saints, where you have to persevere to be holy otherwise you will lose your salvation.  Prof Malan is an Arminian, the more modern name for this would be a Methodist.]

Calvinism Refuted from the Bible

by Prof. Johan Malan, University of Limpopo, South Africa (posted January 2006)    [Note: Permission received to publish this article in full]

Scripture references, unless stated otherwise, are from the New King James Version.

South Africa, since its beginning as the small Cape of Good Hope Dutch colony in 1652, has been strongly under the influence of Calvinistic (Reformed) churches planted here by colonists from the Netherlands. Calvinism became so firmly entrenched here that, for centuries, the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC), largest of the three Dutch-derived Reformed churches, functioned as a virtual state church. It was rare for candidates who did not belong to the DRC or one of its two sister churches to get senior positions in government. All churches outside these denominations were openly branded as sects.
