Calvinism Is Not Salvation, Not The Gospel
By David J. Stewart | July 2015
Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.”
John Calvin (1509-1564) was a religious heretic who lived 500 years ago. Calvin taught the heresy of infant baptism. He also taught the deception that religious sacraments are equal with the Word of God. Martin Luther (1483-1546) was another religious reprobate, who lived during the same time as John Calvin. Both of these reprobate men taught sacramental salvation, which includes both water baptism and communion. Of course, the word “sacrament” is not found in the Holy Bible. Thus, Christians ought not observe sacraments at all.
In the New Testament Church, we only observe two ordinances: water baptism and the Lord's supper. These are not sacraments and do not bestow any special grace upon the participant. They are simply symbols. Water baptism symbolizes the Gospel, showing outwardly what has happened inwardly, that is, our faith in the death, burial and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Likewise, the Lord's supper symbolizes Christ's broken body and shed blood for our sins on the cross. We do this in remembrance of the Lamb of God Who gave Himself for us.
John Calvin's heretical teachings on salvation are commonly expressed and simplified with the acronym, T-U-L-I-P:
TOTAL DEPRAVITY (man is too wicked and has no freewill to come to God, he must be enabled)
UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION (God chooses who will be saved)
LIMITED ATONEMENT (Christ only died for those whom God chose to be saved)
IRRESISTIBLE GRACE (God forces salvation upon those whom He has chosen)
PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS (those who are saved will persevere in holy living, otherwise they are not saved)
There you have it, Calvinism in a nutshell. All five of these teachings are Satanic!!!
The Satanic Lie Of Lordship Salvation Is Rooted In Calvinism
It is Calvin's fifth principle of the Perseverance Of The Saints that is the basis for the Lordship Salvation heresy, which has infected at least 50% of our Baptist churches in America. Lordship Salvation is the false plan of salvation which says it is not enough to acknowledge one's sinnership in God's holy eyes (repentance) and believe the Gospel to be saved. According to the fraud of Lordship Salvation (and there are many variations) a person MUST also receive Jesus as their Lord, fully surrendering their will to follow Christ, forsaking sinful bad habits and the world, purposing in one's heart not to live in willful sin anymore, and to confess Jesus Christ publicly before men.
This popular heresy is being propagated by false teachers; such as, John Piper, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, John MacArthur, Chip Ingram, Billy Graham, Rick Warren and countless more. It is a matter of Heaven and Hell, of salvation or damnation. There are not two plans of salvation. The Bible teaches something very different than what today's greats are teaching. In sharp contrast, the Word of God teaches that human effort has no place in God's simple plan of salvation. Anyone (like Pastor Rick Warren - see his website) who uses doublespeak if an imposter, saying in one statement that eternal life is without works, while in another statement saying that a person must change their own life (which they falsely understand to be repentance) to be saved!!! Repentance does not mean “a change of life,” which is exactly what Paul Washer errantly teaches. Biblical repentance is simply “a change of mind.”
Also, you should know that apostate evangelist, Paul Washer, is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, which is a hotbed of Calvinism.
Pastor Bob Gray Sr. at the Longview Baptist Temple church in Texas correctly preaches concerning repentance . . .
“Repentance means to change your mind—change your mind—change your mind about how you want to get to Heaven to what God says you've got to do to get to Heaven. If you've got to repent of all your sins, you're still headed for Hell tonight.” —Pastor Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the awesome MP3 sermon, Why You Should Be A Part Of A Growing Church

Refuting Calvinism And Predestination
One heresy always begets another. Since Calvinists don't believe that man can come to God by his own freewill, they must beget another heresy which says God forces people to be saved. And thus, then they must also beget another heresy that Jesus only died on the cross for those whom God chose. It wouldn't make sense for Christ to die for men whom God knowingly chose not to be saved. My friend, it should be very obvious to you by now just how messed-up John Calvin was in his theology.
The Bible teaches in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” May I say, “WHOSOEVER” means anybody!!! The Bible doesn't say that God only loves Christians; but rather, it says God loves (agapes) THE WORLD (and this includes everybody). It is ridiculous to say that Christ only died on the cross for certain people, when we plainly read in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Calvinism is synonymous with works salvation, because it is based upon human performance. Paul Washer plainly teaches that without works no man will ever go to Heaven. In sharp contrast the Holy Bible teaches in Romans 4:5-6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.” What beautiful Scriptures!!! Please learn about the important Biblical doctrine of IMPUTATION concerning salvation. Also, please read, IMPUTATION AT SALVATION, by Pastor Jack Hyles.
Tragically, the new Satanic Bible versions are promoting Calvinism, by changing the meaning of what it means to repent. Most of the modern counterfeit Bible versions completely remove the world “impute,” and in so doing the meaning and concept of this important theological word is lost. Please use only the trustworthy King James Bible!!!!!!!
So beware my friend, because Calvinism is not the Gospel. Calvinism is manmade religion, not salvation. Any plan of salvation which places the burden of sin upon the sinner is of the Devil. Jesus bore the full weight of our sins upon the cross, so that we wouldn't have to pay for them in the eternal Lake of Fire. The Bible teaches that we are saved by completely RESTING in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 4:10-11, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”
Adding even the tiniest amount of human effort to the simplicity that is in Christ corrupts salvation into dead works which cannot save. Religion cannot produce the new birth by the Holy Spirit of God. Our churches are filled with religious people, going through the motions, who have never submitted themselves unto God's righteousness. Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” This my friend speaks of the imputed righteousness of God through faith in Christ.
Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” I have HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS by faith, do you? Calvinism is self-righteousness by the law. The only way to be saved is to get out of the way, and to let God do the saving through faith in His only begotten Son. Either God does all of the saving or else you are not saved. God does not save those who are trying to be saved, He saves those who are trusting to be saved. END
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
