Election and Predestination: Calvinism Exploded

Lazy, self-serving calvinists want nothing to do with conditions, personal responsibility. This 3rd column they run from.

Calvinism’s Terrible TULIP:

  • Total Depravity
  • Unconditional Election
  • Limited Atonement
  • Irresistible Grace
  • Perseverance of the Saints

“…they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 17:14 

Those who will be eternally with Christ are “faithful” to Him who called and chose them. God clearly requires that like the 5 wise virgins, those He initially saves remain engaged in an abiding relationship with Him, the Great Bridegroom, which is a choice (Matthew 24:13; 25:1-13; Hebrews 3:6, 12-14; 10:26-39; Revelation 2-3, etc.).

Man’s part and the divine requirement, is to be “faithful.” It’s an essential. God calls, chooses, and man must have faith and be faithful to the LORD. Jesus says:

be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” Revelation 2:10

God’s elect are simply those who elect to serve Him on HIS stated terms. Calvinism is demonic.

Calvinists falsely seek to remove man and his participation from salvation, claiming that if man has any involved men in salvation, then that’s a denial of the efficacy of Christ’s sacrifice. Nonsense. They teach that “the elect” are those whom God chose from the foundation of the world, with no involvement required of the recipient of His salvation. They teach the the “elect” person participates by obeying or even believing he has to obey Jesus, that such a person is denying the efficacy of Christ. In fact, they teach that even against the person’s will, God chose them as His elect and so they are forced to be His and go to Heaven. Total heresy.

Is YOUR Work Finished just Because Jesus’ Work is Finished? 


“Do you guys ever wonder about the judgment reserved for those who could be judging God’s chosen?”


Who are “the chosen”? In the mind of delusional calvinists, THEY alone are the chosen, the elect but the Bible tells us that Jesus died for “the sins of THE WHOLE WORLD” and is not willing that ANY should perish, not one (2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 2:2). But Jesus says individual men, ALL of whom HE calls to Himself, have to choose, to elect Him on His terms to be with Him eternally (Josh 24:15; Rev 17:14, etc.).

The bigger question is: Do you ever if God really meant it when He told us He’s going to judge the defenders of His enemies with His enemies? Those who bid Godspeed to the wolves the LORD so often warned us about, will be judged with them, in hell (2 Peter 2:1-3; 2 John 10-11).

One believer writes: “God’s elect are the ones who choose His ways and follow His Son Jesus who came to save those who would give up the world for the Kingdom He came from.”

That is the exact truth about “the elect” – those who elect to love, worship, and obey Jesus.

To remain in the protection of our great God, we must remain soundly rooted and grounded in His Word, pure doctrine – which would necessitate the rejection of false, poisonous systems of theology such as calvinism (Ps 119; Prov 30:5-6; Acts 20:20-32; 2 Tim 2:15; 3:16-17, etc.).

(This is good. This is a good, brief read that is very balanced and establishes God’s initiating, merciful position and what He requires of man. This clears out the demonic, poisonous twists perpetrated by calvinists).

Eph. 1:4-5 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love; Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.”

ELECTION, God’s choice of those who believe in Christ is an important doctrine to the apostle Paul (see Rom. 8:29-33; 9:6-26; 11:5,7,28; Col. 3:12; 1 Thes. 1:4; 2 Thes. 2:11; Tit. 1:1). Election (Gk. eklego) refers to God’s choice in Christ of a people for Himself in order that they should be holy and blameless before Him (cf. 2 Thes. 2:13). Paul sees this election as expressing the love of God as He receives as His own all who receive His Son, Jesus (John 1:12). The doctrine of election involves the following truths:

  • Election is Christocentric, i.e., election of humans occurs only in union with Jesus Christ. “He hath chosen us in him” (Eph. 1:4; see v. 1, note), Jesus Himself is first of all the elect of God. Concerning Jesus, God states, “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen” (Mat. 12:18; cf. Is. 42:1,6; 1 Pet. 2:4). Christ, as the elect, is the foundation of our election. Only in union with Christ do we become members of the elect (Eph. 1:4,6-7, 9-10,12-13). No one is elect apart from union with Christ through faith.
  • Election is “in (him) . . . through his blood” (Eph.1:7). God purposed before creation (Eph. 1:4) to have a people through Christ’s redemptive death on the cross. Thus election is grounded on Christ’s sacrificial death on Calvary to save us from our sins (Acts 20:28; Rom. 3:24-26).
  • Election in Christ is primarily corporate, i.e., an election of a people (Eph. 1:4-5,7,9). The elected are called “the body of Christ” (4:12), “my church” (Mat. 16:15). God’s special people (1Pet. 2:9), and the “bride” of Christ (Rev. 21:9). Hence, election is corporate and embraces individual persons only as they identify and associate themselves with the body of Christ, the true church (Eph. 1:22-23; see Robert Shank, Elect in the Son [Minneapolis: Bethany House Publishers], pp. 45-55). This was true already of Israel in the O.T. (see Deut. 29:18-21, note; 2 Ki. 21:14, note; see article on GOD’S COVENANT WITH THE ISRAELITES, p. 314).
  • The election to salvation and holiness of the body of Christ is always certain. But the certainty of election for individuals in the body remains conditional on their personal living faith in Jesus Christ and perseverance in union with Him. The apostle Paul demonstrates this as follows. (a) God’s eternal purpose for the church is that we should be holy and without blame before him” (Eph. 1:4). This refers both to forgiveness of sin (1:7) and to the church’s sanctification and holiness. God’s elect people are being led by the Holy Spirit toward sanctification and holiness (see Rom 8:14; Gal. 5:16-25). The apostle repeatedly emphasizes this paramount purpose of God (see Eph. 2:10; 3:14-19; 4:1-3,13-24; 5:1-18). (b) Fulfillment of this purpose for the corporate church is certain Christ will “present it to himself a glorious church . . . holy and without blemish” (5:27). (c) Fulfillment of this purpose for individuals in the church is conditional. Christ will present us “holy and without blame before him” (1:4) only if we continue in the faith. Paul states this clearly: Christ will “present you holy and unblameable . . . in his sight: if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel” (Col. 1:22-23).
  • Election to salvation in Christ is offered to all (John 3:16-17; 1 Tim. 2:4-6; Tit. 2:11; Heb 2:9) and becomes actual for particular persons contingent on their repentance and faith as they accept God’s gift of salvation in Christ (Eph. 2:8; 3:17; cf. Acts 2:21 ??; Rom 1:16; 4:16). At the point of faith, the believer is incorporated into the elect body of Christ (the church) by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12:13), thereby becoming one of the elect. Thus, both God and humans have a decision in election (see Rom 8:29 and 2 Pet. 1:1-11).

PREDESTINATION. Predestination (Gk. pro-or-id’-zo) means “to decide beforehand” and applies to God’s purposes and objectives comprehended in election. Election is God’s choice “in Christ” of a people (the true church) for Himself. Predestination comprehends what will happen to God’s people (all genuine believers in Christ).

  • God predestinates His elect to be: (a) called (Rom. 8:30); (b) justified (Rom. 1:24; 8:30); (c) glorified (Rom. 8:30); (d) conformed to the image of His Son (Rom. 8:29); (e) holy and without blame (Eph. 1:4); (f) adopted as children (1:5); (g) redeemed (1:7; (h) recipients of an inheritance (1:14); (i) for the praise of His glory (Eph. 1:12; 1 Pet. 2:9); (j) recipients of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13; Gal. 3:14); and (k) created for good works (Eph. 2:10).
  • Predestination, like election, refers to the corporate body of Christ (i.e., the true spiritual church), and comprehends individuals only in association with that body through a present living faith In Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:5,7,13; cf. Acts 2:38-41; 16:31).

SUMMARY. Concerning election and predestination, we might use the analogy of a great ship on its way to heaven. The ship (the church) is chosen by God to be His very own vessel. Christ is the Captain and Pilot of this ship. All who desire to be a part of this elect ship and its Captain can do so through a living faith in Christ. By which they come on board the ship. As long as one is on the ship, in company with its Captain, he is among the elect. If he chooses to abandon the ship and Captain, he ceases to be one of the elect. Election is always only in union with the Captain and His ship. Predestination tells us about the ship’s destination and what God has prepared for those remaining on it. God invites everyone to come aboard the elect ship through faith in Jesus Christ.” Donald Stamps Life in the Spirit Study Bible pgs 1846-47

Sealed? What Does that Really Mean?

Eternal Security Busted and Exposed

Calvinism Debunked

Calvinism is an extra-biblical system of theology which blatantly contradicts clear, known Scripture. 1 John 2:2 alone exposes calvinism as a doctrinal system of devils.

Calvinism Exposed

Calvinists are snakes. They hide this evil, demonic system of beliefs just like Satan attempted to hide his identity when he entered the pristine, sinless Garden, infiltrating, to deceive the man and woman. His first lie was the OSAS/ES/perseverance of the saints lie which led to the fall of mankind and is still leading to the damnation of millions (Gen 2:17; 3:4).

WHEN you hear someone use the terminology “sovereign grace” you know you are dealing with a deceived calvinist who has bought into a false gospel that intentionally over-emphasizes grace while ignoring divine holiness and justice and the God-given conditions for abiding in Christ. Cross-less. Rebuke and run if they don’t repent – which they most likely won’t because they are intoxicated with this delusion. Calvinism is a system, a set of doctrines of devils that grossly misrepresents Christ and His original Gospel! Calvinism and the Devils who Peddle it Busted!

If Free Will is True (and it is), Calvinism is Patently False (and it is)

As we read further, as we read and equally consider all of Scripture and continue to have the Holy Spirit mesh or properly set the tapestry of the divine will…. The more fuller picture emerges. One thing we begin to realize is that what the calvinist does is refuse to consider the biblical term “foreknowledge” …. God foreknew yet never did nor ever will tamper with the free will He sovereignly gave each man to choose ye this day whom ye will serve (Josh 24:15)…. Calvinism grossly perverts the character of God and the original Gospel by it’s intentional overemphasizing of certain things and purposeful ignoring other things.

Calvinism is demonic as well as those who espouse this evil system of hatred and futility (1 Timothy 4:1). None of those Romans verses they misuse mean or say that God tampered with the free will HE gave men… as if He foreordained that some go to hell as well as forcing His “elect” into His kingdom against their own free will. Calvinists read into the text. They are indoctrinated from small children with this diabolical system.

“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” James 1:13-15

“But if the word of God foretells that some angels and men shall be certainly punished, it did so because it foreknew that they would be unchangeably [wicked], but not because God had created them so.” Justin Martyr- c. 100/114AD – c. 162/168 AD.

The LORD makes a crystal clear distinction between Himself, the one true God, and the idolatrous worship of all false gods, which are of Satan (1 Corinthians 10:19-21).

“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.” Joshua 24:15

Calvinists for example, insist upon blaming the LORD in their false theology instead of simply realizing that God gave man a choice – “CHOOSE you this day whom ye will serve” – He sets before His people “life and death, blessing and cursing” and desires that we “choose life, (so) that both thou and thy seed may live:” (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:” Deuteronomy 30:19

Can’t blame God for the wrong choice man made in the Garden that caused the fall of mankind, nor for the bad choices that mere men have made since then. Here’s how the LORD says things go down:

“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 BUT every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” James 1:13-15

Here the LORD blames men for their sin, not Himself. Any person who is espousing a theology that blames God instead of sinful men, is under the power of “the spirit of antichrist.” (1 John 4:1-3)

Calvinism is a doctrine of devils, “another gospel” and those who peddle it are “accursed” and it doesn’t matter how Christian are sincere or well meaning they may appear (Galatians 1:6-9).

Satan will give people a million pounds of truth to kill them with that one ounce of poison. But calvinism has ample amounts of poison and no one who holds Scripture as final authority could possibly buy into it. “A little leaven leaveneth (ruins) the whole lump.” (Galatians 5:9) Here is a library of posts exposing the roots and false doctrines of calvinism. Calvinism
