Calvinism & Arminianism Philosophy Answered in Light of the Gospel of Freedom From Sin

The Human Condition

Calvinism: Total Depravity

Arminianism: Deprivation

Answer: When Adam chose of his own Free Will to eat of the fruit of the Knowledge of Good and Evil He forever affected his seed (Humanity) to a state of being Flesh driven rather than Spirit driven. When a member of Humanity does make the choice to Sin they cause their heart to become hardened. They thus come out of the realm of Innocence and enter into the realm of Death (separation from God) which is the jurisdiction of the Devil. In this state Humanity is a slave/debtor to commit Sin and though he does have the ability to choose not to Sin in individual situations and will be judged based on every Sin that he commits, he is inevitably going to choose Sin because he is by nature a Flesh driven being with a hardened heart who can be manipulated by the Devil.


Calvinism: Unconditional Election

Arminianism: Conditional Election

Answer: Apart from Divine Revelation, Election is known only to God, therefore it is best not to concern oneself with it.


Calvinism: Limited Atonement

Arminianism: Unlimited Atonement

Answer: Atonement is Restoration of Relationship with God. We understand that Pardon has been Purchased for all Sinners by the blood of Jesus, making way for the Grace of God to be extended.


Calvinism: Irresistible Grace

Arminianism: Prevenient Grace

Answer: The Grace of God is not a Pardon for Sin rather it is the Person of Jesus and His impartation of the Holy Spirit, therefore He must be Resistible(Free Will) by the Sinner. Yet because of the goodness of Jesus and the necessity of the Sinner, the Sinner must Surrender this Resistance(Free Will) in order to be Saved from Sin and restored back into Relationship with God, which is Life. The best way to understand this is a marriage. When the woman says, “I Do” she is giving up her Will, she is submitting once, of her own Free Will under her spiritual head. Even so Jesus as our example submitted to the Will of the Father when He was Baptized and received the Holy Spirit.


Calvinism: Perseverance of the saints

Arminianism: Conditional preservation of the saints

Answer: Once the Sinner has Repented of/Turned away from his Sin and Surrendered his Free Will to Jesus Christ, having his Old Sin Nature of Adam and the corrupted heart crucified and buried in Baptism = being Born Again of water and the Holy Spirit by God becoming a New Creature that CANNOT Sin by virtue of the New Nature of Jesus and the pure heart and the Indwelling power of the Holy Spirit who lives in, for and through and causes him to observe, keep and do all the Will of God, he is thus Saved from Sin and Eternally Secure and therefore CANNOT Sin.

  1. Wicked FALSE TEACHING. OSAS rubbish, and DANGEROUSLY false. If it is not possible to fall from a state of grace, these verses have no meaning: Rom 14:13, 21; 1 Cor 9:27, 10:12; Gal 5:4, 7; Col 2:16-23; 1 Tim 4:1-3, 5:15, 6:21; Heb 3:12, 6:4-8; 10:26-39, 11:15-16, 12:15-17; Js 5:19-20; 2 Pet 3:17-18. Additionally, the NT books of Hebrews and Revelation were without purpose.

    Stop teaching falsely, you unregenerate and God-damned pious fraud (Js 3:1; 2 Pet 2:1; Rev 21:8) . ?

      I do not teach OSAS, which is based on the Sinner being saved regardless of sins committed. I teach Eternal Security only by the power of the Holy Spirit living in, for and through and causing the Saint to be made and kept perfect from all unrighteousness.
      “…God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” -Acts 3:26

      The link you posted does teach that dangerously false doctrine. Falsely claiming that the HS effectively eliminates someone’s ability to choose evil and fall from grace is OSAS by the side door, and is in no HONEST way necessarily exegeted from Acts 3:26. ?
      May God deliver us from the Social Media False Teacher!?

      I encourage everyone to read my article on my website and ask the Holy Spirit for the truth with no biases. If you hold on to your Free Will you will be stuck with your Human/Sin Nature but if you believe in Jesus and get Baptized/Born Again(John 3:3&5) calling on His name(Acts 22:16) and ask the Father in Heaven to save you FROM your Sins He will give you the Holy Spirit(Luke 11:13). And you will know the LORD (Hosea 2:20) and you will be joined into one spirit with Him(1 Corinthians 6:17), and He will remain in you and you will not be able to Sin(1 John 3:7-10). This was what was promised in the the New Covenant(Ezekiel 36:25-27, Hebrews 10:16-18).
      “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” -1 Thessalonians 5:24
      “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” -Jude 24-25

      “So that everyone reading will know you to be the God-damned False teacher (literally; Gal 1:9; 2 Pet 2:1) that I know you to be, describe for us your baptism by the Holy Spirit. Tell us what you saw/felt/heard/, and what others around you saw/heard when that happened.”

      This is My Testimony
      “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” -John 3:19-21

      I read it. Sounds like the Spirit was trying to baptize you, but you resisted, and decided to let your FLESH stay in charge. And now some obnoxious, Kingdom-vandalizing, sinless perfection cult has its hooks in you, and is busy making you twice the child of Hell they are. Lots of luck with those neo-Pharisees. ?

      SC Watchman
      So God fills someone with the Holy Spirit who is a slave to sin (in my case a porn addict) but the Devil saves people from sin.
      You don’t realize it but what you are believing is rooted in Gnosticism.

      Charles Michaels
      Your exegesis of the scriptures assures me you wouldn’t know the Holy Spirit from a distilled spirit. It appears all you’ve done is substitute one sin for an even more obnoxious sin: misplaced spiritual PRIDE. May God have mercy. ?
