"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Responding to Common Objections to Calvinism

    2 Timothy 2:24-26 says, "And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will."

    Traditions - everyone has them and those most enslaved by them are those who don't think they have any. On this 20 minute video, Dr. James White responds to a number of questions from a gentleman who goes as far as to say that Calvinists are not even Christians. The false assumptions contained in the questions are abundantly clear to anyone who is in any way familiar with the issues. Some would say that the rhetoric in the questions would not be worthy of a response, but showing patience when seeking to provide answers may help a number of people who watch the video.

    Good, I really enjoyed this, I have this similar response by people who do not understand the reformed faith although clearly I am not as educated as Dr. White in the scriptures, but the truth of the matter is that the scriptures stands against armianism and stands by itself and proves itself God is holy and sovereign and freely chooses whom He will save not by our doing or any merit He foreseen but by His perfect will, he saves the elect

    You can't defeat Calvinism because you can't defeat the Bible.

    Great post. Very breath-catching. I am going to post this video on my blog and refer your website to those who watch. God bless.

    Why does God Choose? In effect God does not choose on the same meaning as we know it as choosing. My understanding is; God knows every one before the beginning of time, He chooses on that basis, he knows who will accept Him and who will not, to my mind it's not a lottery.

    Thank you for this message.
