    Almost everything in Scripture refutes Calvinism, but Calvinists read Scripture through the light of determinism while refusing to examine their deterministic theology in the light of Scripture.

    There is no point in debating them because they prefer to blame everything on God. This has a deep hold on them because they suppose it releases them from any and all responsibility.

    God appears to have hardened most of their hearts so they can no longer turn and repent.

      Mike Jones perhaps a bit of rhetorical exaggeration to make clear the problem. I am not necessary referring to Calvin himself but especially the new 5-point Movement pioneered by RC Sproul. To quote a long-time observer, it’s the last stage of dying faith.

      It’s very understandable why the early Pentecostals to the man rejected Calvinism and why the movement developed from the Holiness revivalists.

      But if you think differently, let’s hear.

      Thomas Henry Jr. First, I’m not Arminian, who are moderate Calvinists.

      Secondly, this has nothing to do with salvation by works of the Law of Moses as Paul addresses and is even a separate issue than works of faith.

      No links you post can convince me to turn away from so great a salvation that I found in Jesus Christ. I told you when we spared before you cannot change me. Please do try now with insults because that proves you have no argument to begin with.

      Philip Williams i have demonstrated anything but my assurance of my salvation. One thing I know— those early disciples had an assurance of their salvation that Arminianism does not give. They died in faith. Went see lions and etc in full assurance of a salvation they were call and elected too.

      Apparently, Paul didn’t assume that he had already obtained it:

      “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

      Thomas Henry Jr. technically if you are a determinist, you did not find this salvation you speak of. You were drawn by God and regenerated so you could believe. Therefore, if you were to be convinced that another way is more accurate, then it would thus be God’s will for you to turn from the faith you now hold to!! So don’t worry so much, if God predestines all the beginnings to the all the ends, you have no control whatsoever.

    What “T.U.L.I.P.” Does to Assurance of Salvation
    Few long-cherished doctrines of believers are more under attack today
    than the belief in the possibility of assurance of salvation.
    Can you know that you are saved?
    Most believers would probably answer that question in the affirmative—
    even if their lives might not be shining examples of Christian growth.
    But the teaching of T.U.L.I.P. would allow them no such assurance.

    Absolute assurance of salvation is impossible in Classical Five-Point Calvinism
    and Lordship Theology.
    Hard to believe…but demonstrably true.

    Understand why: Since works are an inevitable outcome of “true” salvation,
    one can only know he or she is saved by the presence of good works.
    But since no one is perfect (although some five-point Calvinists believe in “sinless perfection”), any assurance is at best imperfect as well.
    Therefore, you may think you believed in Jesus Christ, may think you had saving faith,
    but be sadly mistaken.

    To explain this, Calvinist theologians must create two kinds of faith,
    “spurious” faith (faith that does not save) and
    “genuine” faith (faith that results in works, and thus saves).

      Philip Williams I have never interacted with or met a Calvinist who “boasts” of their sin. Matter of fact the Calvinist is very sensitive to their sinful nature and lives a life of perpetual repentance. Let’s face it, we sin daily so we must repent daily. The Calvinist is very sensitive to their sinful nature that they are humble enough to repent.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

      In a very broad sense, all English-speaking Protestants, especially Americans, are Calvinist or Reformed.

      What I mean is that the Puritans from which we obtain our spiritual inheritance were Calvinists, though few were 5-Point. The leaders fled to Geneva during the persecution by the Catholic Queen Bloody Mary.
