MarkV, how many times do we need to tell you Calvin is not in the Kingdom of God, therefore cannot teach or preach on who does or doesn't enter. The SAME Bible we have today he had....he is without excuse! John 3:5 you must be born Again First TO ENTER...not just see it!

Galatians 5:21
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
---kathr4453 on 2/8/11


Kathr, you are oppose to the Sovereign right of God to choose whom He wills into His Kingdom. You demand your own rights at the expense of God's. You oppose passages given to you just like those in the passage Craig gave, who limited the power of God in their own minds to their own condemnation. But God said,
"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth, it shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" I don't oppose you to change your minds, only to defend the real Truth. God is never limited by anyone. He accomplishes His purposes. For He is God and there is no other. All your talk is worthless for it has no Truth only venom.

\\mima,

i find cluny to be one of the most provocative bloggers on here. and it is not because he agrees with me, it is that he shows conviction. \\

Thank you, aka.

One thing I try to do is to get people to really think.

However, too many people indulge in what Orwell in 1984 called "duckspeak."

And Christian duckspeak is still duckspeak.
---Cluny on 2/7/11


Mima, I gladly share Christ with every opportunity I am given. For there is nothing so precious as the salvation of a soul. Would to God that everyone would actively increase the kingdom of God.
---Eloy on 2/7/11


I dont think its Kats intention nor mine to paint Calvin as any worse than any other heretic, Alan.

The point is that if a man murders in the name of Jesus Christ, why would you follow any of his beliefs? Why read his OPINION of what scripture means? This doesnt JUST go for Calvin, but for ANY man or woman who claims to be a child of God and murders those who oppose their teachings. That person is a deceiver. If they were of the faith that saves then their heart wouldnt drive them to murder. The Holy Spirit would lead us to "shake the dust off our feet" not MURDER!

Its just like the Pharisees. They proclaim the name of God and honor him, but their heart is FAR from him. They worship him in vain.
---CraigA on 2/8/11




Kathr ... look at the history books ... Calvin was no worse then any others
---alan8566_of_uk on 2/7/11

I looked a the history of the NEW TESTAMENT and can find NO CHRISTIAN no matter what Year or what was going on murdering anyone.

Alan Christ IN US is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Jesus doesn't care what everyone else is doing now or then.

That NO excuse.

Do you attempt to manipulate everyone as you attempt to manipulate me, mima? (And this is NOT the first time.)

Do you really care for my soul? Or just want me as a notch on your Bible so you can rejoice in my flesh?

Sorry that I refuse to walk in your paths and be taught in your ways. I'd rather follow Jesus, myself.

Calvin forced the citizens of Geneva to attend church services under a heavy threat of punishment. Calvinism falsely teaches that God forces the elect to believe, it is no wonder that Calvin thought he could also force the citizens of Geneva to all become the elect. Not becoming one of the elect was punishable by death or expulsion from Geneva. Calvin exercised forced regeneration on the citizens of Geneva, because that is what his theology teaches.Calvin also had thirty-four (34) women burned at the stake after accusing them of being witches who caused a plague that had swept through Geneva in 1545.

John Calvin's actions were very paganistic. Jesus and all of the Apostles would have abhorred and condemned these blatant mass murders.
---kathr4453 on 2/7/11


John Calvin's murder of people who held different doctrinal views, his failure to acknowledge or repent from his sins, his incomplete gospel, his placing of his own writings above the Bible, his distortion of God and the Scriptures, and his dependence upon infant baptism places into question his salvation. In all of his writings is not found a clear declaration of his salvation by faith in the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Calvin was a cruel, murderous tyrant who considered himself to be the pope of Geneva.
---kathr4453 on 2/7/11


You're right Cluny, He does reply.

Eloy, 7 is a holy number. I feel like we're part of somethng special.

In Geneva, a secret police was forged under the name of The Consistory. Every home was compulsorily examined and searched. The City was divided into districts and committees of the Consistory were empowered to search and interrogate all residents without previous notice. Attendance at public worship was commanded and watchmen were directed to see that people went to church. The one thing that Calvin did not endorse was religious liberty.

From 1541 to 1546, John Calvin caused 58 people to be executed and seventy six were exiled. His victims ranged in age from 16 to 80. The most common capital offense was the opposition to infant baptism.
---kathr4453 on 2/7/11


Nothing but Words...Calvin not in scripture?? He sure is....and no one is to LORD IT OVER anyone, IS IN SCRIPTURE, but be an example.

Calvin believed in infant baptism and the sacraments..just like the RCC.

He was a dictator.

Praise God Craig you and I and everyone on here can and does have LIBERTY In Christ. Christ is our Head...not man...not Calvin, who played GOD and not only judged but carried out their sentence...

Much like the anti-christ will be, who refuse to obey him as well.

I want NOTHING to do with any religion that is ABUSIVE and robs my conscience from worshiping as I chose.

Just who in the heck did he think he was...the Protestant Vicar of Christ???

Mark_V, that scripture ("And they limited the Holy One of Israel"
) is not saying Gods POWER is limited by man, it saying that Gods work is limited in the lives of those who resist Him! I love how you twisted that to take a poke at me once again.

The fruit of the Spirit... love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.. These things comes FROM God. They are WHO HE IS!

Craig, you refuse to do research to proof what you said is truth, is really another excuse. You talk and present nothing but opinions and how you feel. If you are going to speak against something or someone or a doctrine, how can you say it is wrong when you cannot show proof? No Scripture, no evidence to show that Calvin was hanging people at the altar. Not a one, just more accusations. I have said it all along that most of your comments and Kathr's are nothing but words. While it is ok if you do not believe in the election of God, many don't, but please stop sinning by making up things to bring shame on someone.

First we have to listen to what Jesus told us about the Kingdom. John 3:3 tells us that we cannot see the Kingdom of God unless we are born again. In John 3:5 Jesus tells us how to be born again. We must be baptized and born of the Spirit to enter into the Kingdom.

Then we are told that He will return when this Gospel of the Kingdom is preached to all the world. Matt. 24:14. The gospel of the kingdom is the gospel of Jesus Christ, as recorded by His eyewitnesses (his disciples). Therefore, we must learn what Jesus taught his disciples and teach it to others.

Craig ... I've said this to Kathr before.

As you know, and as MarkV undoubtedly knows, I am no Calvinist and do not agree with the way Calvin teaches Predestination.

But, you undermine your argument by continuing to push Calvin's alleged complicity in murder of other Christians.

There were many Christians, of many opposing groups, who murdered their "opponents" in many cases thinking that they were saving those opponents' souls by killing them.

Calvin was no different, and no worse than any of them.
---alan8566_of_uk on 2/5/11


Calvin seems important to only a few people on these blogs. Yet, he gets far more coverage here than he deserves. He lived in the 1500's. (it's now 2011...you do the math).

I've not heard anyone holding him up as a fine example of Christian living.

But this I know. He is not the first nor the last Christian to sin, even sin grievously. Do you say "My grandma, forty years ago, taught me the Bible. She spanked children, which is child abuse. She never spanked me, but because she was so mean... nothing that she taught me could be true."

Some people do think this way, and usually it's to their own detriment.
---Donna66 on 2/5/11


eloy, my witness is of the things that you claim and mima says in many past blogs.

i know...i am not in the light that you are in. remember, artificial light can be generated by man. by the things that you consistently say and the 'logic' that you use. when you say that spreading the gospel is up to man and not God, that is anti-scriptural and you are in the light...man-made artificial light.

the Lord cannot show you through me what you cannot discern.
---aka on 2/5/11


Mark, I was simply asking you to apply your statement to the life of John Calvin. Sometimes I think you have trouble understanding the english language. A regenerate man is not a murderer, nor is he a true believer in Christ if he murders those who oppose the doctrines he teaches. Those people bruised his ego and he killed them for it. The Pharisees had the same rage in them when Christ bruised their egos.

And I refuse to do your research FOR you. Youre a grown man. Go read it for yourself. Hit the books just as we did in highschool and college. If you dont then you have noone to blame but yourself. You can never say you werent warned about following a false prophet.

What is this obsession with CALVIN? He did not invent the idea of predestination (it is in scripture, quoted many times on these blogs).
And many people today who believe in predestination have no idea who Calvin was, let alone anything he said or did. What's more they probably don't care.

Ask around for a "Calvinistic" church (or even one that teaches "Calvinism"), Unless you are at a seminary, all you get will be a puzzled stare.
---Donna66 on 2/5/11


aka, I defend all of my Christian brothers and sisters as my own body, and I foretell that all whom choose to bash my Christians will lose. I rightly answered, YES, it is right for one hand to ask the other, What are you actively doing to increase the kingdom of God? He did not ask, as you wrongly dissed, Who is greater in the kingdom? Mima The questioner is not boasting, nor needs to humble himself in any way to ask the question. However You need to humble yourself and acknowledge the fact that you are wrongly dissing the questioner, rather than honsestly answering. Then you try to reproach me also with your dissings, because I have exposed your Christian-bashing. Let us see some Christian fruit from you, says the Lord.
---Eloy on 2/5/11


Craig, you do not get it again. You said,
"EXACTLY!!! So then how do you explain John Calvin?"
when was I explaining John Calvin? When have I quoted one thing from him? What I have quoted is Scripture. Wrote Scripture down for you, interpreted for you, and explained the Sovereignty of God to you. It is you who is looking for excuses to not believe the Truth that is presented to you so you come out with Calvin hanging others at the altar. Such nonsense since it has nothing whatsoever to do with the Word of God.
But now that you wrote what you did, why do you not present some proof of what you say. Show where he was hanging people at the altar. It's easy to talk, and another to proof what you say.
---Mark_V. on 2/5/11


---What born of the Spirit preacher would be hanging anyone? If he was hanging people for what you say, he himself would not be a believer of the elect---Mark_V

EXACTLY!!! So then how do you explain John Calvin? Did you ever research the man before you read his doctrines and adapted them? Ignorance is not an excuse.

\\What would you'd rather do have a wonderful friendship with someone and them go to hell, or have someone become very mad at you because you witnessed to them.\\

There's a third scenario, mima.

You "witness" to your friend (especially at an inopportune time), and he gets mad, cuts off the friendship, and goes to hell anyway.
---Cluny on 2/4/11


Years ago this question was brought to my mind. What would you'd rather do have a wonderful friendship with someone and them go to hell, or have someone become very mad at you because you witnessed to them. And because of your witness they received the Lord Jesus Christ. If you can state unequivocally that you prefer to make someone mad and them gets saved from your witness. You will see your witness have wonderful results. Life is not a popularity contest. Rather live is to prepare us for life eternal with the Lord Jesus Christ. And the deciding decision is yours to make.
---mima on 2/4/11


aka, It is right for one hand to ask the other hand, What are you doing for Jesus? Why, because the question itself should cause the audience to search themself and evaluate, "What am I actually doing for the Kingdom?" And there is nothing ill at all in posing this question, however all is wrong for the carnal flesh to be offended by the question because the carnal one is not humble at all but disses the Christian whom asked the question, What are you doing? by giving an antiChrist reply, Shouldn't you be humble and not ask my sinful flesh, which is doing nothing for God but bashing his Christians, to stay that way?

Craig, That's the most ridiculous statement I've read so far,

" If you walked into a church across the street and the pastor was hanging people at the altar because they werent believers of "the election" would you seriously listen to anything that man has to say about God? Have you lost your mind?"

It's "you" who have lost your mind. What born of the Spirit preacher would be hanging anyone? If he was hanging people for what you say, he himself would not be a believer of the elect. For he would not be saved. I give you a hint, search Scripture for answers as to who are the
elect. Ask the Spirit to help you, if He is in you. He helped me, He can help you, if you walk in the Spirit.

---aka on 2/3/11


Mark, why do we need modern day prophets when God himself has already come in the flesh and told us all we need to know? Look at all the division and hatred caused by 'modern day prophets'!

Jesus Christ gave us numerous warnings about people coming in his name and deceiving many.

LOOK at Calvin's life!!! If you walked into a church across the street and the pastor was hanging people at the altar because they werent believers of "the election" would you seriously listen to anything that man has to say about God? Have you lost your mind?
---CraigA on 2/3/11


Craig, it's you who does not know that man is but an instrument in the hands of God. the giving of cars, having parties to save souls, is all of man. While it is wonderful that people spread the Gospel as commanded by God, He is the One moving people to do what He wants done and it will be done. "And if the prophet is induced to speak anything, I the Lord have induced that prophet, and I will stretch out My hand against him, and destroy him from among My people Israel"
God will deceive (entice) a false prophet only in a qualified sense. When one willfully rejects His Word, He places a resulting cloud of darkness, are permits it to continue, hiding the Truth so that the person is deceived by his own obstinate self-will.

Spreading the word is up to man, who requires everything from man.
---Eloy on 2/3/11


Spreading the Word is up to God, who doesn't require anything of us. He chose to work through us. The fruit of the Spirit working through man is His will.

Jesus plants the seed and God gives us living water to feed it. God causes it to grow. The Bible makes it perfectly clear that Jesus scatters the seed and works through some who are willing. How can God make it grow? He has chosen those who give up their will to produce Fruit for others. We have a job to do! (John 14:10).

However, are we to spread the Gospel or talk of spreading the Gospel? Is it right for the left hand to ask what the right hand is doing? Who is greater in the Kingdom?

When men seek the wisdom of Calvin rather than Christ then Calvin very much becomes the issue.

Its obvious you are scared to question your doctrine even when pressed with scripture from dozens of other brothers and sisters. Somewhere along the line, someone has convinced you that if you dont believe in predestination to salvation, you cannot be saved. Faith in predestination has taken the place of faith in Christ and thats a dangerous place to be.

Noone wants you to deny faith in Jesus Christ. By preach to the lost that God hates some men you are causing men to stumble. Youre playing right into the enemies hand and you dont even see it!

If we dont plant the seed and water it, how can God make it grow? We are SONS now. We have a job to do!

Therefore faith from hearing, and the hearing through a word of God. Go you all therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you."

Aka, I believe as you do and here's why, I've mentioned this before to Mima. It is always what he is doing and how he has done this or that, winning souls to Christ, at parks, different cities, on the streets, and when someone disagrees with the blog, it's because there not doing anything, but he is. What he fails to understand is, that it is God who is doing the winning of souls. It's God who is working in the lives of believers to bring the gospel to those who will be saved. It is all about God, not about ourselves. God should be taking the glory. Without God we would be at home smoking a cigar and drinking a beer. God moves people to work for Him, in different ways, they don't advertise themselves, the advertise God.
---Mark_V. on 2/1/11


Mima, you are so right, it is very plain by the people's words, whom are those whom are not doing a any thing to increase God's kingdom, and it is because they themselves are unsaved, for they cannot give that what they themselves have not. For one of the clear marks of a real Christian is the desire for others whom are still unsaved to become saved. So the fruitless branch whom does nothing and disobeys the Command to go share the gospel is accursed, and will be gathered up and thrown into the everlasting fire to be burned.

your blogs are good, but your question seem a bit self indulgent to me.

if you take it as an insult, i am sorry. i am trying to be honest.

Mima, pay no mind to the antiChrists and antiScriptural dissers: "I plant, Apollos watered, and God gave the increase": This means without planting the gospel seed, and without watering it, then God cannot give any increase at all, therefore Paul and Apollos increased the Kingdom by first planting the Kingdom of Christ in the people's hearts, and then the soul went through the water of repentance, and then that soul was converted and added to the Lamb's Book Of Life in Heaven and became a disowner of the cursed world and a new citizenship translated to Christ's Kingdom.

Only Leslie and Candice have answered the question all others have tried to insult and/or push to question away in distain.
As a street preacher I have been criticized many many times. However when ever I ask the person criticizing me to tell me what are you doing to add increased the kingdom they are always silent. The reason for the silence is they'er doing nothing.

\\i would like to keep my crowns if any for now instead of spending them now on a question that seems a bit self-serving (see Cluny on 1/29/11)

Whether you actually have a crown has not yet been established, but why would posting a scriptural answer, as I did, mean you would lose it?

Understanding that the Kingdom of God is within, that kingdom increases as I decrease. When I consciously submit what I recognize as my will to the will of Father's Spirit within me & allow the errors within me to be revealed and dispelled by the truth that reveals them, the kingdom within increases and empowers me to embrace to an increasing greater extent the righteousness, peace and joy found there.Therefore I can honestly say that I am actively making a conscious effort to rest in His indwelling presence. Through that presence I may plant the seed of His word into the life of another, or I may water a seed that has already been planted, but only The Father's indwelling presence, in that life, can bring about an increase, in that life.

Matthew 7:21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

22 "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?"

23 "And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

-- Mima :

Brother, When it comes to the Kingdom of God, as God's Children, what we all are to actively be doing is to continue in the Gospel's endeavor to plant & water unto the Lord... God has given us this means to increase the Fruits of our Righteousness which has come to us through our Lord & Savior, but never allow yourself to be disillusioned as to where the increase of God's Kingdom comes form, b/c I say unto you that God is able of the very stones at your feet, to raise up Children and increase His Kingdom !!!

I hope you don't actually think you do anything to accomplish this, mima.

As it is written, "I plant, Apollos waters, but God gives the increase."

Studying his word daily, & then sharing the word with others.

Soul winning is the ONLY thing that will increase the Kingdom of God. Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18, Romans 10:14-15.
