#237 Anti-Calvinist Straw Man Arguments Exposed and Debunked

On today’s show we will be reviewing a very anti-Reformed sermon by Ralph ‘Yankee’ Arnold, who is the pastor of Calvary Community Church of Tampa, Florida. Does Calvinism teach that the elect are forced against their will to believe? Does Calvinism teach that we can neglect to preach the gospel to every creature? Does Calvinism teach that our perseverance in the faith depends on us? Does Calvinism teach that those who are non-elect, but want to go to heaven, cannot believe on Christ? What does Calvinism really teach about human inability? How is it often misrepresented and distorted by its critics?
