Calvinism or Calvinist
Calvinism is named after John Calvin. It was first used by a Lutheran theologian in 1552 and followers tody are called Calvinist. Calvinism have five doctrinal points in their beliefs represented by TULIP. This acronym summarizes the Calvinist beliefs, particularly around their five points: "Total depravity", which means all people by their own faculties are morally unable to choose to follow God. "Unconditional election" asserts that God has chosen from eternity those whom he will bring to himself not based on their free choice. "Limited atonement", this implies that only the sins of the elect were atoned for by Jesus's death. "Irresistible grace", asserts that the saving grace of God is effectually applied to those whom he has determined to save (that is, the elect). "Perseverance of the saints" asserts that since God is sovereign and his will cannot be frustrated by humans or anything else, those whom God has called into communion with himself will continue in faith until the end. Right Divison is the answer to all of these points and rejects everyone of them. Wayne takes us through key scriptures that refute what these points are claiming. Right Division of scripture from an Acts 28 perspective refutes everyone of these five points.
