He can do with us and to us as He pleases and we have no right to question Him.

Granted some Calvinists make more of predestination than Christ, but bottom line: we are only saved by the blood of Christ on the cross, not by works. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I am active in a church, doing good works not to be saved but to glorify God and because the Bible commands them. I still make mistakes; I am not completely sinless, but that's why we have repentance.

And I don't consider Arminians unsaved. I don't believe that all of the truly elect become Calvinists. Charles Spurgeon in his "Defense of Calvinism" had no doubt that John and Charles Wesley were in heaven. Reformed churches use lots of Charles,Wesley's hymns. Not all Calvinists love Arminians and I know most Arminians think all Calvinists are going to Hell.

If it wasn't for Calvinism, I'd probably still feel all warm and fuzzy with my "God loves me for being me" mentality while I surfed the web for porn. Instead, I am answering your letter and working on another youtube video to be followed by dinner and scripture reading. I have no time for TV, after all, thst's just a large noisy idol.
You don't deserve to go to Hell for being born into sin for that was not your fault. That's like Hitler saying to the Jews they must go to the gas chambers because they were born Jews.

But you do deserve to go to Hell for rejecting the God of sufficient grace who died on the cross for the sins of the whole world.

God is not the god of robots. He doesn't pick some people to irresistibly regenerate, but rather, He predestinates by foreknowing our free choice since He has give us all sufficient grace to have to have the choice. That's why we are "without excuse" (Rom. 1.20). This is something your god is unable to do so God of the Bible trumps your god every time. I love that.

God can't be evil when He saves people as your god is. Why does He not save everyone? Because not everyone freely receives the offer of salvation.

Your god commits negligent homicide. You would go to jail if you behaved the way your god does if two people were drowning and you did nothing to help them or only tried to help one. So how can God's standards be less than our own? Ergo, you worship a false Christ made in your own selfish image.

In Calvinism whether you realize it or not you try to save yourself by works because you don't know if you are saved or not, since it was never your choice. Admittedly, you assumed you were irresistibly selected, but that's just an assumption. You did not genuinely come to the cross as a helpless sinner to receive the Lord Jesus as Savior to be regenerated.

You do worship a false Christ.

I don't consider all Calvinists unsaved, just the vast majority. Those Calvinists who are sorta on the fence about it but truly gave their lives to Christ will be corrected in their mistaken assumptions. Christians can be demonically possessed so this would fall into that category. Most OSAS Arminians would agree that not all but certainly most Calvinists are going to Hell. There is always an exception to the rule.

I have no doubt, Wesley (non-OSASer) and Spurgeon (Calvinist) will be resurrected for Hell after Jesus reigns on earth for 1000 years. Nobody is in heaven yet, not even David a man after God's own heart (Acts 2.34). Lots of cults think Christians are in heaven right now and inadvertently engage in necromancy in supposed communication with them, but in reality, they are communicating with demonic spirits posing as loved ones.

You probably watch tv more than you should. Now when you surf for porn you don't feel all fuzzy inside you said, but your god made you do it just as you assumed you were irresistibly regenerated according to your faith so you are ok with it. There is the Assumption of Mary being sinless and the Assumption of Calvinist called Total depravity. The truth of your mistaken assumption is that since Christ provided sufficient grace to all, nobody could be Totally depraved. You are not a robot. You do have a choice. You would be robotic you if you were irresistibly selected. Certainly God can do better than that. Actually it's evil to force someone into salvation. Praise the Lord God affords us the choice. A person forced into something is of the same opinion still.

Whereas Christians if we were to sin that sin, we would not only feel guilty, but realize we would lose the reward of returning with Christ to reign on earth for 1000 years. These are consequences for Christians who are tied down the world like balloon unwilling to be released.

Realize the word "Reformed" was highjacked from "justification by faith." Calvinist have changed the meaning to mean pridefully and self-exactingly they were irresistibly selected.

Since you have given your life to a false Christ that very much resembles Hitler, you are not born-again. This is your choice, and you admit you don't have a conscience to realize this is wrong, showing you are demonically possessed. You simply don't have a conscience in Christ because your spirit is dead to God and wish to remain an unregenerate.

Sad really.
