  • ECT: The Calvinist 5 Solas

    Calvinists, holding to the historical Reformed Faith of the Protestant churches, witness to the following Gospel doctrines:

    Sinners are saved by the grace of God only (SOLA GRATIA), through God’s gift of faith alone (SOLA FIDE), in the righteousness of Jesus Christ alone (SOLUS CHRISTUS), as revealed to mankind from God via the Holy Scriptures alone (SOLA SCRIPTURA), to the glory of God alone (SOLA DEO GLORIA)!

    Anyone who declares these Calvinist beliefs & teachings to be delusional, deny the very Gospel message that alone will save souls.

    May God show mercy to those who falsely bring dark accusations against those who walk in the light of Godly TRUTH.
    "The immutable God never learned anything and never changed his mind. He knew everything from eternity."

    " The difference between faith and saving faith are the propositions believed."
    Gordon H. Clark

    "If a man be lost, God must not have the blame for it; but if a man be saved, God must have the glory of it."

      So the Lord gives a so-called "gift of faith" to only some people and therefore only some people can believe and be saved?

      I just cannot believe that the LORD's will is that some people are doomed to hell as soon as they emerge from the womb and there is absolutely nothing that they can do to avoid hell!

      That is not the God of mercy and grace revealed in the Bible!

        The only escape from death and hell, is faith and trust in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. "The just shall LIVE by FAITH." Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17, 3:22

        There is nothing a sinful creature can do to remedy their unbelief and thereby conjure up faith. Nothing.

        Faith comes only by the grace of God. Ephesians 2:8-10

            The "mystery hidden in God" is not dispensationalism.

            Paul was saved by the grace of God alone, through the gift of faith alone, which gave him belief in the righteousness of Jesus Christ alone, as revealed in Holy Scripture alone, to the glory of God alone.

              Calvinism teaches that faith is a gift given by God and only some people have the ability to believe the gospel. And according to Calvinism all those who have the ability to believe will believe and be saved.

              Is that what Calvinism teaches?

                Calvinism teaches that no man can or will believe God due to the inherited corruption of their natures and hearts. All men are corrupt in their unbelief.

                God alone, through His Holy Spirit, power, and grace, regenerates and gifts many with faith to believe in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

                It is solely the call of Sovereign God whether one is saved from death and hell, or not.

                Those who are given new spiritual ears to hear, respond to this Gospel TRUTH and believe unto salvation, without fail. They are resurrected by God to new life, as new creatures in the Lord.

                Praise be to God!

                  That is obviously not right, since SOLA SCRIPTURA cannot be proved using the Holy Scriptures alone and each of the others are misrepresented by Calvinists to the point of not being Biblical.

                    You didn't answer my question. Calvinism teaches that faith is a gift given by God and only some people have the ability to believe the gospel. And according to Calvinism all those who have the ability to believe will believe and be saved.

                    Is that what Calvinism teaches?

                      So what other source besides the Holy Scriptures do you turn to?

                        You always say that when you are answered plainly and clearly, and you lack a legitimate rebuttal to the TRUTH given to you.

                          If you believe in SOLA SCRIPTURA, please provide the verses that list the books that make up the Holy Scriptures.

                              Calvinism teaches that faith is a gift given by God and only some people have the ability to believe the gospel. And according to Calvinism all those who have the ability to believe will believe (the so-called "effectual calling" made up by the Calvinists).

                              However, the Scriptures tell a different story:

                              "And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God" (2 Cor.4:3-4).

                              The gospel is hidden to those who are perishing and the god of this age, Satan, is responsible for the gospel being hidden from them. Satan blinded their minds to the gospel for one purpose, "so that they cannot see the light of the gospel."

                              The fact that the minds of those who are perishing can be "blinded" to the gospel proves that they have the ability to see it if their minds were not blinded to it. After all, one must be able to see before being blinded can happen.

                              This demonstrates that even those who are perishing have the ability to believe the gospel and as a result receive salvation. Therefore, it cannot be denied that the Lord's death and the blessings which flow from that death have the potential to be applied to even those who are perishing.
