In Topic: John Calvin Had It All Wrong

20 July 2014 - 04:23 PM

ALL the reformation churches came from the RC background.  All of them fly the supposed Christian Flag flown in some Baptist churches.  But that flag was the reformation banner not a baptist banner.  Baptist did not come from the reformation they came from around it.  And If I am not mistaken Baptist are not from the direct line of Anabaptist, many associate it because of the word baptist in the name.  American Baptist are a unique fellowship of believers.  See Elmer Towns "Theology Today" he gives a little insight on it.

 

John Calvin didn't just persecute the Anabaptist he persecuted Wesleyans, the Lutherans, the Presbytery church, the Episcopals, RC and any groups that he could not influence toward his ideas for the church.  Later some of these groups created opposition to him while others conformed to him but not to the Bible.

 

 

Weslyans?

Correct, Calvinism teaches another gospel;

 

1 Cor 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

Paul taught that Jesus died for "our" sins. No Calvinist who believes in Limited Atonement can honestly tell another person Jesus died for "our" sins as they do not believe Jesus died for all men. Calvinists all admit they do not know who the elect are. In fact, Calvinists do not know for certain they are elect, they just presume to be so. They do not know if Jesus died for them personally. Just because you believe something does not make it so. You could believe a gun was unloaded and put it to your head and pull the trigger, if it is loaded you will blow your head off. So, convincing yourself you are elect does not necessarily make it so, if Jesus did not die for all men, then no man can know for a certainty if Jesus died for him. 

 

 

 

 

 

I have seen another gospel mentioned on here, that we become Christians because we don't want to go the Hell,  I have heard a similar other gospel from a Baptist preacher. " We become Christians because we want to go to heaven."

 Calvin was Catholic before he bacome supposedly a Protestant- but with research from David Cloud, it appears he was still pretty Catholic. 

 

Calvin a Catholic?

 

Before we were saved some were Catholics, some of other false religions some none. 

 

OK I looked up some of what Calvin actually wrote and I came across this.  

 

Now,every one that has learned from Scripture what are the things that more especially belong to God, and will, on who is able to save and to destroy; the alone King, whose office it is to govern souls by his word. It represents him as the author of all sacred rites;the other hand, observe what the Pope claims for himself -- though he were but a boy of ten years of age -- will have no great difficulty in recognizing Antichrist. Scripture declares that God is the alone Lawgiver (James 4:12)  it teaches that righteousness and salvation are to be sought from Christ alone; and it assigns, at the same time, the manner and means.

 

There is not one of these things that the Pope does not affirm to be under his authority. He boasts that it is his to bind consciences with such laws as seem good to him, and subject them to everlasting punishment.   

 

Teaching that  righteousness and salvation are to be sought from Christ alone;  does not sound Catholic to me.                                                                                                                                                                        

Sorry I should have said it was from his commentary on 2 Thess. 2:4

There was a report on the late news last night that credit cards belonging to some of the Britons killed had been used since the downing.  I did not hear that repeated today.

Don't forget to put a young man who lacks experience in ministry is also an area that leads many down the wrong path as well.  It is like letting the child rule the family instead of the Dad.

 

Like Spurgeon?
