Calvinism — None Dare Call It Heresy
Today, a growing number of churches, ministries and Christian colleges are promoting Calvinism. Although Calvinist scholars claim that Calvinism is complex (and they have indeed created a complex system), the rudiments of it are very basic, and can be readily understood. Nothing can be more serious than a deviation from the Gospel itself. Calvinism does present another gospel. John Calvin taught that God will be glorified by bringing billions of people into this world for no other purpose than having them burn in hell for eternity. Furthermore, the Calvinist can never actually know if he or she is one of the elect, thereby placing the Calvinist Gospel on a foundation of doubt rather than true biblical belief in the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ at Calvary. If that is not heresy, then what is? Lighthouse Trails, 123 pp.
