Anti-Calvinism Memes and Links

This is the last half of the post "What's The Best Way To Make People Agree With Your Calvinist Views."  But I put it here in its own post so that it's easier to find.

These are some links to posts which are against Calvinism, the belief that the Bible teaches God has predetermined from the beginning of time who goes to heaven and who goes to hell.  It's no secret from my writing that I strongly disagree with this view.  I believe the Bible clearly teaches that God offers us all salvation, that Jesus's death paid for everyone's sins, and that we have to decide if we will accept Him or reject Him.  And here is some of what others have to say about Calvinism (I haven't read everything in all of these yet and I don't necessarily agree with every point they make, but I needed to link to them before I lost them online):  

"Reflections of a Calvinist 'Unelect'" 


"My Journey Into Calvinism" 

"Calvinism Critiqued by a Former Calvinist" 

"Why I Disagree With All 5 Points Of Calvinism" 

"Is Calvinism Biblical?"

What's Wrong With 5-Point Calvinism?

Errors of Calvinism  (This person doesn't hold back, says exactly what they're thinking.  Love it.  Cracks me up.)

And here's a PDF file of hundreds of pages against Calvinism, which includes "My Journey Into Calvinism."   



Here is my own research/opinions on this issue, the posts about it on this blog.  Or you can click on the "predestination" label to find them, or start with this post and follow the links at the bottom through the predestination series.  

[But before you read, I would challenge any strong Calvinists to do what I did when I was researching this issue: Ask yourself if you really want to know the truth, even if it means finding out you've been wrong all this time.  Take the time to really consider if you are willing to find out you might be wrong, or if there's any pride in you that would prevent you from letting God open your eyes to the truth.  

If you are not willing to find out you might be wrong - if you are bristling as this idea and already coming up with all sorts of arguments to "prove" you are right - then there's no point in reading anything I write because you are already set in your views and your pride.  But if you are willing to see the truth whatever the cost, then ask God in prayer to open your eyes to His truth, even if it means showing you that you are wrong.

It's amazing how much sense Scripture makes and how consistent the Bible is and how consistent God's character is when you get rid of Calvinism and predestination.]

Here are my posts on this issue, in order:































And these are the four really big posts that I got all of the above posts from:









And for Fun.  Here are some anti-Calvinism memes that made me giggle.  (I always provide links instead of embedding other people's things into my posts because embedding them is when you start running into copyright issues, from what I understand.  So linking is safer.):

(Ahh, I crack myself up!)




It's comforting to know I'm not the only one who sees things the way I do, who believes that when Jesus said He died for all, He means He died for all.  Calvinists can be so forceful and vocal and manipulative and condescending that you can begin to feel like there's something wrong with you - like you're a "bad Christian," a "stupid Christian" - for not agreeing with them.  But take heart!  You're not alone.  I'll be bad and stupid with you!  :) 

And keep digging for the Truth of what the Bible says.  When you finally do understand what it really says, it all makes sense.  Unlike predestination.
