On tonight’s programme we look at accusations made that Calvinism is a false gospel. Such claims come from Lighthouse Trails, Bob Kirkland, Adam Fannin of Stedfast Jacksonville Florida (a church affiliated with Steven Anderson) and other similar groups. We respond to Adam Fannin’s claims that Calvinists are lost.
In a recent sermon called ‘AIDS: the Judgement of God’ Steven L. Anderson made the headlines once again claiming that Homosexuals should be killed and that AIDS was a Judgement of God. However something that has been missed by the media was that Anderson believes that Homosexuals cannot ever come to Christ. He sees them as being beyond the possibility of salvation and therefore he will not allow a homosexual into his church to hear the gospel. What does the Bible teach on these things?
Paul looks at the Calvinistic doctrines irresistible grace (effectual calling) and the perseverance of the saints while finishing the critique of Steven Anderson. Does the Bible teach ‘Once Saved, Always Saved’? What does the Bible teach about a true believer in Christ Jesus?
Paul discusses the Reformed view of the atonement verses the Arminian view of the atonement. How does Arminianism limit the atonement and how does Calvinism limit the atonement? Also in this show Paul will continue his critique of the views of Steven L. Anderson.
Paul will continue his refutation of Steven Anderson’s sermon on Calvinism while discussing one of the most hated doctrines in the Bible, God’s Sovereign Election.
