Errors of Calvinism
#1
ERRORS OF CALVINISM
"O horrible decree; worthy of the place from whence it came! Forgive them of their blasphemy who charge it to the Lamb!" From a hymn by Charles Wesley on Calvinism.

Christ enlightens all men: John 1:4,9; 8:12; 9:5
God's grace appears to all men: John 12:32; 16:8; Acts 26:22-23; Titus 2:11
Men can resist God:  Jer 13:11; Acts 7:51
Our actions may win souls: 1 Peter 3:1; James 5:19-20
God wants everyone to be saved:  Luke 19:10; John 17:21; 1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet 3:9; 1 John 4:14; John 12:47; Acts 3:26
Christ died for all: John 1:29; 4:42; 6:33; Rom 5:18; 1 Cor 15:22; 2 Cor 5:14-15; 1 Tim 2:6; 4:10; Heb 2:9; 10:29; 2 Pet 2:1-3; 1 John 2:2; Col 1:20
Why God hardens some: Is 54:15 Rom 1:21 Rom 11:32 Is 6:9-10 AND Acts 28:25-27  Is 48:8  God still desires their salvation Ps 90:3
How God elects people: 1 Pet 1:2  Election does not usually refer to salvation: Rom 9:11-13
People are saved while still blind: 2 Cor 3:13-16
Predestination is not to salvation: Rom 8:29; Eph 1:5
God the Father draws all people to Christ: John 6:44-45
The same works of God can be accepted or rejected by the lost: Luke 10:13

I agree whole heartedly with your beliefs on Calvinism.  Those are excellent Scripture references.

But, as you know, the Calvinist sees what he wants to see with regards to Scripture.  And that includes whatever doctrines he believes may or may or not be supported by those Scriptures.

In short, I have yet to see any Scripture that a Calvinist would not claim he could twist and turn to his advantage.  Even if the only people seeing the advantage of such twisting was himself and other Calvinists.

Calvinists claim that is because they are intellectuals.

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” - - Romans 1: 22
