But if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked man does, will he live? None of the righteous things he has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness he is guilty of and because of the sins he has committed, he will DIE (Ezek. 18:24).
But what is far worse, the saints sometimes rush headlong, as though utterly desperate.
Hence, any other statement by John Calvin or anything his followers today might say, which would imply the truly saved live holy lives or they were not truly converted, is nothing but empty talk and a smokescreen designed to hide the license for immorality that Calvinism truly is. (Such people try to avoid backslidden King David like the proverbial plague.) We know this because John Calvin dangerously taught, in contrast to the clarity of Ezek. 18:24 (and other Scriptures), that a righteous man would not extinguish God's grace by sinning like David. Please note he used the word grace. John Calvin, just like Charles Stanley and others, have changed grace into a license for immorality by teaching eternal security . That doctrine must be opposed by all Christians in obedience to Jude 3,4.
QUESTION: Did you know Calvinism declares an elect person remains saved even if he plunges into the very lowest abyss of sin before you read it here?
■ John Calvin also believed and tried to defend infant baptism, without any Scriptural backing, yet Calvinists think they are sola scriptura [Scripture alone] people!
■ Even more repulsive is John Calvin's belief in infant damnation for some babies! If you are a true Calvinist, you too believe that some babies are now in hell's fire! John Calvin certainly was not a great theologian as some want us to believe. John Calvin was a heretic, though it is not readily known. That is the real John Calvin of Reformed theology!
