Great post Bladerunner, and I too agree with much of the Calvinist doctrine except the free will part. I also find it hard to accept that some people were born to go straight to hell and God knows it ahead of time. Why bring them into the world? I have see some good Calvinist VS Open Theist debates. Maybe we could post a good one here and comment as we watch?

No-one is predestined to go to hell, sin was not predestined. God never created man a sinner.

But God foreknew and does know and foreknow.

So foreknowing that man would sin God predestined man's redemption.

You have to ask "if God foreknew that His beautiful creature would sin and utterly wreck His creation, should He therefore resign Himself to not creating at all?"

Where would you and I be?

People never really get to grips with predestination because they shun it out of hand, predestiny is grained into every aspect of life and nature. For example the prodigal son MUST return to his father or die a starving and ignominious death because man is created with the need to renew his strength by food, this characteristic is part of predestiny.


Yes, there is fact are people around the world that will never rise up out of their sin as God will not have called them thereby conditioning their heart to seek and accept Jesus Christ. These whom He calls will He justify, sanctify and glorify.   

Why God has done it this way, I do not know ? He created us from the dust of the earth, we are his and he has sovereignty over us at all times.

Why I'm not a Calvinist | Why I disagree with Reformed Theology

In this video I will discuss why I disagree with Reformed Theology (briefly) and why I'm not a Calvinist. Please do not comment or send me hate unless you watched the entire video ;) As I explain how I feel in detail near the ending.

The BIBLE balance is the judgement, we are predestined and elected to be the church, the people of God, sons, predestiny and election are not said to be unto salvation that is what people suppose, naturally we must be saved in order to be conformed to Christ.

But that says NOTHING about others who are not so chosen they will be judged and God has promised to judge with equity.

Oh, will Michael and Gabriel, the holy warriors of GOD, need to be saved to conform to Christ? When did they sin?

As for salvation, it is the worldly fulfillment of the promise of election to elect sinners  given pre-world...and I deny you can find one word of the constituents of predestiny and election that are not prerequisites for or fulfillments of salvation...not one.



But that says NOTHING about others who are not so chosen they will be judged and God has promised to judge with equity.
To say nothing is to say all that is needed! They were obviously not elected so they were passed over for election. If you can't figure out what this means then I will tell you.

 If there was no reason for electing some then there was no reason for not electing others. If there was no reason of sinfulness in them so that they were passed over for election then they were innocent and if there was sinfulness in them that caused them to be passed over then there was also a reason for the election of the others, that is, they did not sin the sin that caused people to be passed over for election which is what I declare.

I can't believe that some people have been accepting this foolishness for some 500 years! Yikes! Innocents going to hell! Elect for no reason!

Wheat are NOT reborn / regenerate tares !!!

Matt 13:36-43  ...Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

38 the field is the world
good seed are of the kingdom sown by the Son of man
tares are of the wicked one 39 sown by the devil


Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

In the parable of The Sower, Jesus taught us that salvation was like a seed cast into soil.  The seed reacted with all of the types of soil accept for the hardened path.  The ultimate results was dictated by the type of soil and not the seed.  The seed was faithful to do what it was meant to do and either the soil had what was necessary to carry resulting plant to fruition or it did not.

The good soil was predestined by the farmer to bear fruit but the other types of soil were not.  Do you believe that this sheds any light on predestination?
