I watched a pastor become a Calvinist, so he did not have to witness anymore.

Calvinism is gross heresy because it effectively NEGATES the Gospel, i.e., renders it a moot point.

It’s like those comical TV commercials run by credit-protecting agencies. One shows a man in a white smock looking into a seated patient’s mouth and saying, “That is the worst cavity I have ever seen!” Then the fellow removes his white smock and asks his assistant if she is ready to go to lunch.

“Hey,” moans the poor patient in the chair. “Aren’t you going to fix it?”

“Sorry,” the fellow replies on his way out the door. “I’m not a dentist, I’m a dental *monitor.* I only alert you when you have a cavity. And you have a NASTY cavity!”

Such is Calvinism. “Hey, you got a terrible SIN problem!” the Calvinist “evangelist” tells you.

“Oh, no,” you reply, “what should I *do* about it?”

And in a very pious tone the Calvinist replies, “I cannot help you. Only God can.”

This is how we know Calvinism is a demonically-inspired doctrine. It renders the Gospel paralyzed while filling Calvinists with the warm fuzzies assuring them they are doing God’s work. God help us—and them.

Charles Michelsen Scott Bushey, can a person CHOOSE to confess with his mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in his heart that God raised him from the dead WITHOUT having his “dead spirit” reanimated by God first? And what if God chooses not to reanimate him? What does he *do* then?

Hi Ms. A, Thank you for your inquiry and interest in biblical truth. I will attempt to extrapolate on the facts as God’s word lays them out. You mention that your friend is struggling with the idea that God forces men to believe in…

Scott Bushey ‘And what if God chooses not to reanimate him? What does he *do* then?’

If a person seeks God, he is most likely one of the elect:

Luke 18:
18 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’

4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”

6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

Charles Michelsen Bushey, if you wish to defend your heresy, do so with your own words. Posting scriptures whose meanings are the *subject* of the dispute is NOT arguing a position. I will ask my question again and if you cannot provide an answer from your own mind please do not bother replying, thanks. Once again, answer me directly: Can a person CHOOSE to confess with his mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in his heart that God raised him from the dead WITHOUT having his “dead spirit” reanimated by God first? And what if God chooses not to reanimate him? What does he *do* then?

Charles Michelsen As noted on my timeline recently, this is what I’m constantly dealing with on FB. Unlettered Bible “experts” and “theologians,” each one more ignorant and arrogant than the last. Small wonder the Christ-despising world runs for the hills when they hear one of these unlearned Bible-thumpers pontificating ad-nauseum, as well they should. 🙁

Scott Bushey Rom 6:
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

Wayne Bond A man asks a question that can be answered very simply, but you have to hide in Scripture, which we all know can often be stated out of context.

Scott Bushey You don’t because u can’t. In that, you are bearing false witness against the Calvinist-which is a break in the ninth commandment. Defend yourself or repent.
Charles Michelsen
Charles Michelsen Bushey, Wayne Bond nailed it. You hid behind disputed scriptures, because you knew answering my questions would have proved the point of my essay: the gross heresy we call Calvinism effectively NEGATES the Gospel. You fooled no one, Slick. Have a lovely day. 🙂

Scott Bushey Not one scripture used….LOL Because you can’t.
