The False Doctrine of Calvin

The False Doctrine of Calvin

I am saddened and frustrated at the resurgence of Calvinism among Fundamental Baptists.  Simply put, Calvinism is Christianity without Jesus.  All those who believe in it are in error, and all those teach it are even worse.  It is a false doctrine, it should be fought, and it should be kept out of our local churches.

Calvinism is a man made philosophy depending on fallible human logic which totally ignores many clear Scriptures, perverts many, and misuses others.  The Roman Catholic heretic Augustine presented this false doctrine long before John Calvin’s time.

Here are some Scriptures that soundly refute the errors of the Calvinist TULIP as compiled by a man named John Henry:

T = TOTAL INABILITY (Called in Calvinism, Total Depravity, but actually taught as the Total Inability of man to choose Truth. The Calvinist plays many such word games. The Word of God teaches that God created man with the ability to reason, choose, and receive Truth.):

Ephesians 2:8:  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”

Romans 10:17:  “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”

James 1:21:  “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and RECEIVE with meekness the engrafted Word, which is able to save your souls.”

Isaiah1:18:  “Come now, and let us REASON together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

Deuteronomy 30:19:  “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

Joshua 24:15:  “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, CHOOSE you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

Psalm 119:30, 111, 173:  “I have CHOSEN The Way of Truth: Thy Judgments have I laid before me….Thy Testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for They are the rejoicing of my heart….Let Thine hand help me; for I have chosen Thy Precepts.”

John 1:12:  “But as many as RECEIVED him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

2 Timothy 1:12:  “…I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have COMMITTED unto him against that day.”

U = UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION (Calvinism teaches that God selects those who are to be saved without any condition, but the Bible teaches that there is one condition to salvation:  faith.):

1 Peter 1:2:  “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ…”

2 Thessalonians 2:13:  “…God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the Truth.”

Luke 7:50: “… Thy faith hath saved thee …”

Ephesians 2:8:  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”

L = LIMITED ATONEMENT (Calvinism teaches that Christ died only for the elect, but the Bible teaches that He died for all mankind. The reason not all are saved is because they failed to repent and receive the Saviour, not because He didn’t provide for their salvation.):

Isaiah 53:6:  “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us ALL.”

1 Timothy 4:10:  “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of ALL MEN, specially of those that believe.”

1 John 2:2:  “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of THE WHOLE WORLD.”

Hebrews 2:9:  “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that He by the grace of God should taste death for EVERY MAN.”

1 Timothy 2:4:  “Who will have ALL MEN to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the Truth.”

I = IRRESTABLE GRACE (Calvinism teaches that God’s grace for salvation cannot be resisted, but the Word of God says it can be resisted):

Lamentations 3:35-36: “To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High, To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.”

Matthew 23:37:  “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and YE WOULD NOT!”

John 5:39-40:  “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And YE WILL NOT come to me, that ye might have life.”

Acts 7:51: “Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always RESIST the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.”

Proverbs 1:24-26: “Because I have called, and YE REFUSED; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh.”

Proverbs 29:1: “He, that being often reproved HARDENETH HIS NECK, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

P = PERSEVERANCE (The Bible teaches preservation of the saints; not perseverance of the saints):

Jude 1:  “… to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and PRESERVED in Jesus Christ…”

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24:  “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly: and I pray God your whole spirit and soul, and body be PRESERVED blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. ”

John 10:27-29: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all, and no man is able to pluck them out of my Fathers hand.”

Colossians 3:3-4:  “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”

Hebrews 7:25:  “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”


Calvinism clearly errs from the teaching of the Word of God on all 5 points of it’s TULIP.  The logical conclusion of Calvinism is that God is an unfair respecter of persons who chooses people to salvation, not according to any standard that He established, but arbitrarily.  This strikes at the love and justice of God, contradicts the fact that Christ gave his life for ALL, and rejects man’s responsibility to choose and love his Creator.

Proverbs 24:23:  “… It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.”

Acts 10:34-35:  “… Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him.”

John 6:28-29:  “… What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? … This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent.

Ephesians 2:8:  “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”

    Thank you Pastor Reno for the most concise refutation of Calvanism I have every seen. What the Scriptures clearly teach is in direct opposition to Calvanism. Our pastors need to stad up, stand fast and speak out against this heresy. Instead more and more are compromising. Just because a belief may be held by a majority; it does not make it right!

    “The logical conclusion of Calvinism is that God is an unfair respecter of persons who chooses people to salvation, not according to any standard that He established, but arbitrarily.”

    No one who understands anything about Calvinism would say such a thing. Romans 9:15 says, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” Just because we don’t fully understand God’s purpose in election doesn’t mean His choices are arbitrary.

    As for total depravity/inability, what about Romans 3:10-11? It says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.” Seems pretty clear to me. It isn’t that man wants to choose God but can’t, it’s that man doesn’t even want to choose God.

    Unconditional election is a mystery, to be sure. What we do know about it is that God’s choices are not based on our works (Romans 9:11), so He clearly is not a “respecter of persons.”

    Limited atonement means that Christ’s atoning sacrifice effectively satisfied God’s wrath against the elect. It makes salvation a certainty for those “chosen us in him before the foundation of the world” (Ephesians 1:4). In your view of the atonement, Christ’s sacrifice only made salvation a possibility.

    Irresistible grace refers to the grace that draws men unto Christ. Sinful, fallen man is, by definition, born into rebellion against God, so we all resist his grace. However, when God effectively calls us, we respond. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).

    Perseverance of the saints teaches, as does scripture, that our faith must persevere to the end if we are to be saved. “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-2). The promise is that believers WILL persevere because the work of sanctification is of the Holy Spirit. As Jude writes in verses 24 and 25, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” God preserves us, and that is why we persevere.

    Pator Reno, in general I agree with your comments, although there are more moderate Calvinists who undertstand the TULIP points quite differntly than version you have presented. Norman Geisler comest to mind. Also, I don’t quite understand your comment that Calvinisn is Christianity without Christ. Can you explaint this more fully? Two of the elements of what I would call “strong Calvinsim” that I find most disturbing are its understanding of limited atonement and the claim that the term “world” refers in some scriptures to the elect rather than the totality of unsaved humanity. I find this to be a disturbing example of eisegesis rather than exegesis. There is no warrant anywhare in scripture for sucn an interpretation. The statemnts in TULIP, in some cases may be correct depending upon how they are understood, but the two elements I listed above seem to me to be irreconcilable with scripture.

  • Lee Shelton

    Michael, Norman Geisler may claim to be a moderate Calvinist, but he’s more of an inconsistent Arminian.

    When it comes to limited atonement, some argue that verses like 1 John 2:2 prove Calvinism wrong: “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” But what does that mean? John cannot possibly be referring to every person in the entire world who has ever lived because if every person’s sins had been atoned for, God wouldn’t send anyone to Hell.

    We have to understand what Jesus actually accomplished on the cross. Either he successfully atoned for all the sins of some (i.e. the elect), or he simply made salvation a possibility. The only context in which “world” fits is one that refers to an elect from every tribe and tongue. Christ is indeed the savior of all men (John 3:16) in that not all men are condemned. By saving some, God saved mankind from complete destruction.

    Another way to look at it: Christ’s atonement was sufficient for all, but efficient for some.

    I have to agree with Lee 100% on this. I grew up a premill, pre-trib, fundamentalist So. Baptist Arminian! Over the course of about 8 years, the Lord has brought me to a much, much deeper understanding of the Doctrines of Grace.

    I can’t add much to what Lee has so eloquently laid out here, but I can spin it another way:

    Both the Calvinist and the Arminian limit the Atonement; whereas the Calvinist limits its scope, the Arminian limits its power. An atonement that merely provides a path to salvation is, by its very definition, not an atonement at all.

    I’ll agree with Tyler as well… God is Sovereign.. even over my salvation. Amen!

    Matthew 23:37: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and YE WOULD NOT!”

    This misuse of scripture drives me crazy…Here’s a parallel, if the youth pastor wanted to take your kids on a mission trip but you didn’t feel the area was safe enough, then the youth pastor might want to talk with you and say something like this:

    You seem to have a problem with the mission trip plan…I would like to add your kids to the trip roster but you won’t allow it.”

    In the above quote, the youth pastor is not all that concerned with whether you want to go on the trip at all. In the same way, Jesus was not telling “Jerusalem” (i.e. the pharisees) that He wants to gather them at all – rather that they were trying to interfere with those whom Jesus did intend to gather:

    Matt23:13But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

    But for someone to quote Ephesians 2:8 which clearly states that saving faith is NOT of ourselves and turns it around so that they can boast in their wisdom in choosing Christ needs to take another look at the scriptures.

    It is a tad ironic that in your blog post on the left I read that Calvinists are false teachers of a serious sort and then in your twitter feed on the right I read you quoting from the Calvinist Jonathan Edwards!

    Will you rid your hymnal of Isaac Watts and Augustus Toplady? Will you choose to discount the godly pastoral heritage from men like Robert Murray M’Cheyne, John Bunyan and others? Will you purge your biographical bookshelf of the likes of George Whitefield, Martin Luther, William Carey, Charles Spurgeon, David Brainerd, John Owen, William Tyndale, John Newton, all of whom believed in the same doctrines of sovereign grace? If teaching the doctrines of sovereign grace (such as the doctrine of unconditional election) makes one a false teacher, then all these men are false teachers and they should no longer be held in esteem by the church.

    I realize your conscience is bound to the authority of Scripture as you understand it and i am not asking you to deviate from that. All I am suggesting here is that you be consistent when you toss around the label false teacher. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    Calvinism erred when it took the scripture teaching about how God choose the NATION of Israel, how He continues to deal with them, and will someday save them as a NATION, and applied these teachings to the salvation of all men. A careful study of Romans 9 (which our friend referred to earlier) and the surrounding chapters, in the light of the rest of the Bible, can only lead to this conclusion.

    Romans 9:15 and 18 are not referring to salvation, but rather who God chose to work through to bring about His chosen people, the nation of Israel. It shouldn’t be applied to salvation in anyway, but rather a more accurate application can be made to God working His will in and trough our lives, and our response to His working. In these passages of scripture, God does speak of salvation for individual man, but the over all, the context is addressing the Nation of Israel.

    There are so many more great depths of truth in these chapters of scripture.

    Pastor Reno thanks for teaching truth, we need more men to stand for the whole counsel of God.

    Sheesh. I like it how people who probably have never read Calvin love to rebuke him. Of course, as in the case of this post, if you haven’t ever read Calvin, then it’s simply easier to misconstrue TULIP.

    More to the point, this blog post is a bit too topical for me. Gather five or so Bible verses under one heading (not even taking into account the overall redemptive context), ignore those passages that actually use the words “election, predestination, etc.,” and there you have it! You have “proven” Calvinism wrong.

    Please, Pastor Reno, I encourage you to look at the text, teach the text, and preach the text expositionally. And I would also encourage you to actually read something of Calvin before making such hasty eisegetical mistakes.

    And yep, Lee Shelton is right: We are dead in sins and trespasses, God’s love is stronger than our deadness, and it’s His mercy to do as He pleases. He owes man nothing.

    It’s a wonder He should save but one.

    Thanks Pastor Reno for presenting your views on a very controversial topic. Too often the partisan name calling and charges of ignorance or disingenuity inhibit straightforward discussion of the doctrines that divide.

    I agree with you that we were “made” sinners, that we were conceived in iniquity, and therefore we are all under sin as it is written. But is it correct to conclude that because we are all sinners and thus unable to save ourselves by “acts of righteousness” this precludes the ability to seek God and trust in His Christ? I think not. Calvinists add their man-made doctrine to scripture. They take the verse, “there are none who seeks for God” and add “at anytime.” But in context, as demonstrating we are all under sin, the verse can be understood to say there is none who seeks for God at all times, because we have all turned aside and sinned. The straightforward reading of scripture indicates that the natural, unregenerate man can understand and appropriately respond to plain spoken scripture, that is why Jesus taught at times in parables, and God needed to “harden” the hearts of some Jews to facilitate spreading the gospel to the Gentiles, Romans 11.

    Unconditional Election, I agree, if false doctrine. First some say God cannot base His election of conditions, such as trust in Christ, because that would make Him a “respecter of persons.” But is that sound? I think not. God is not a respecter of persons according to the value system of man, He did not choose very many of the wise, the wealthy or the well-born, did He? No. But He opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble, so that makes God a respecter of persons according to God’s value system, not man’s.

    Next, we does God choose individuals for salvation? Again Calvinists claim Ephesians 1:4 teaches that He did, but again this conclusion is unsound. Were we chosen as foreseen individuals before creation or were we chosen out of this world, John 15:19? Did we live without mercy before we received mercy, 1 Peter 2:9-10? Were we chosen through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 2 Thessalonians 2:13? The bulk of scripture teaches we were chosen during our lifetime, after we have believed. Since this is so, how do we understand Ephesians 1:4 (and 2 Timothy 1:9)? When God chose the Word to be His Lamb (1 Peter 1:17-21). Before creation. Everyone therefore who is in Christ receives a blessing from before the foundation of the world, for when Christ was chosen to be the Lamb, the Redeemer, God chose us in Him, not individually but corporately as those the Redeemer would redeem, whoever believes in Him.

    Atonement (at one ment) only occurs when God chooses individuals, through belief in the truth, and places them spiritually in Christ, the sanctification through the Spirit.
    But Christ died for all men, not only for us, but also for the whole world. Therefore whoever believes, and it is God who credits our faith as righteousness or not, shall not perish but have eternal life, and God has not chosen beforehand who has the ability to believe, the gospel is for everyone.

    Irresistible grace is false doctrine, clearly demonstrated by Matthew 23:13. Here we have Jesus saying certain folks were entering heaven, they were on their way to believing such that God would credit their faith as righteousness, but false teachers fill their beliefs with Calvinism (just kidding) such that the folks are turned aside and do not enter heaven. According to Calvinism they could not have been entering heaven except that they had been altered, their total inability changed, but then they are turned aside, so the grace given them was not irresistible.

    I could not follow your position of Perseverance of the Saints, because if a person is preserved, they will preserve. In any even, my view is once actually saved, and only God knows for sure who these are, a person is saved forever. But a person can profess to be saved, and even become part of the leadership, and then fall away. That is why the church must strengthen the body of professing believers, such that (and many times this is viewed as rededication) we can turn some back to trusting fully in Christ.

    May God Bless

    Our Sovereign God, doing whatever He wants, whenever He wants to do it, purposely decided to rescue certain elect people before the foundation of the world, write their names down in the Lambs Book of Life, sent His Son to die for those born of God, redeems them, and has guaranteed their eternal glory in Heaven, so that there is now no condemnation for all who believe, but only everlasting joy.

    Christ, who rescued me from darkness and took away my sin, is the author and finisher of my faith, and I am kept by the power of God through Christ by faith to the praise of His glorious grace.
    Mercy, repentance, and the faith to believe are precious gifts.
    Justification and the imputed righteousness of Christ are gifts.
    Eternal life is a gift.
    The whole of salvation is a gift, freely and lovingly given to a man who spent a lifetime hating God and dead in my sins.
    God forbid I should boast about anything that is clearly all of God.

    Posted at 14:07h, 22 January

    If God elected foreseen individuals to salvation before the foundation of the world, then it would logically follow that God would write their names in the Lamb’s Book of Life before the foundation of the world. However, it appears our names are entered “from the foundation of the world” rather than “before the foundation of the world.” Now the word “from” suggests after or since the foundation of the world rather than before creation. While translations vary, the Greek word “apo” means from, whereas the Greek word “pro” means before. So the correct versions would render Rev. 13:8 as “whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world, and the correct versions of Rev. 17:8 would render it “whose name has been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world. While not a logical necessity, it is reasonable to assume if some names are not written, then other names, those chosen, would also be written from (of after) the foundation of the world. This then would support that individual election to salvation occurs “from the foundation of the world” and not before.

    Our Sovereign God, doing as He pleases, at the time and place of His choosing, purposely decided to redeem believers before the foundation of the world. When God chose Christ to be His Lamb, He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, not individually but corporately. When God chooses an individual based on crediting their faith in Christ as righteousness, He spiritually places the individual “in Christ.” At this time He writes our name in the Lamb’s book of Lift.

    Christ’s death provided reconciliation for the whole world, but only when God puts us spiritually in Christ do we receive that reconciliation. That is what as Ambassadors, we beg the lost to be reconciled to God through belief in Christ Jesus.

    Once God spiritually places a believer in Christ and seals Him with the Holy Spirit, the person is then predestined to eternal life, plus his or her faith in protected such that the individual is kept for his or her inheritance.

    Posted at 18:34h, 24 February

    A silly statement is one that does not comport with reality.

    And therefore a winner of the “silliest comment” must not mesh well with a straightforward view of scripture.

    When Jesus says He is praying for “them” (John 17:9)He is referring to those that received His words and believe God sent Him. He was not praying for the “world” (fallen mankind) but for those who would carry His gospel to that “world.”

    The Calvinist false assertion is that because Jesus was not praying for the world in this passage, it somehow supports the idea that Jesus never prayed for the world. That Jesus only prayed for the elect. However, if we look down to verse 18 we see Jesus praying for protection of those He is sending into the world. And then Jesus prays for those who will believe through their words. Then we reach verse 21 where Jesus prays that the “world” may believe. Sure sounds like Jesus is praying for the world, all of fallen mankind.

    So what are we to make of a comment that completely disregards the very words of Jesus but to conclude they are silly, fruit from a poisoned tree. Folks, the gospel is for everybody, and Jesus prayed for those who would carry that message to everybody.

    “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” – Romans 1:16

    “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”) – 2 Corinthians 6:2

    “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.” – Ephesians 1:13

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” – John 3:16-17

    “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, though shalt be saved.” – Romans 10:9

    “This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name given among men, whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:11-12

    “But if from thence though shalt seek the Lord thy God, though shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” – Deuteronomy 4:29

    “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” – Ephesians 1:7

    “For the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45

    “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” – John 6:40

    Perhaps rather than spouting man’s philosophy dear sirs, we should instead let the Living Word of God speak for Itself as God intended. To say that Jesus Christ died for some and not all, has chosen to save the “elect” but not all of mankind is to blaspheme the very nature, the very holiness of God and to make the precious blood of Jesus Christ to be as if it were a polluted sacrifice.

    “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish but that that all should come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9

    “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10: 11-17.

    Thank you Pastor Reno for standing on the Truths of God’s Word and for being a Preacher that brings glad tidings of good things. I am thankful that the Salvation of Jesus Christ is offered “for whosoever” and not some.
