(How To Smoke A Calvinist - Robert Morey)
Just for Robert Morey to make such an extreme statement about an unscriptural teaching, that is in reality a license for immorality, makes him worthy of the infamous Skull and Crossbones Award. It should also be pointed out that on the very next page in his book (p. 236), Robert Morey stated there is a "difference" between the perseverance of the saints and eternal security, but then cites the Westminster Confession of Faith, which teaches the "perseverance of the faith"! One must wonder how Robert Morey could state that "eternal security" arises out of the necessity and nature of the atonement (p. 235), is different from the perseverance of the saints (p. 236), then afterwards cite the Calvinist confession as truth which teaches the perseverance of the saints (p. 237)? Robert Morey refutes himself!
Robert Morey gets the Skull and Crossbones Award for changing the grace of God into a "license for immorality" (Jude 4) with the following statement:
Robert Morey Links A Heresy To The Atonement!
The eternal security of the believerarises out of the necessity and nature of the atonement (Robert Morey, The Saving Work of Christ, Grace Abounding Ministries, Inc., 1980, p. 235).
Below is what ALL Calvinists believe about the believerís security. It comes from the Calvinistic Westminsterís Confession, chapter 17, section 3:
Robert Morey's Double TalkNevertheless they may, through the temptations of Satan and of the world, the prevalence of corruption remaining in them, and the neglect of the means of their perseverance, fall into grievous sins; and for a time continue therein: whereby they incur God's displeasure, and grieve his Holy Spirit; come to be deprived of some measure of their graces and comforts; have their hearts hardened, and their consciences wounded; hurt and scandalize others, and bring temporal judgments upon themselves.That is proof that Reformed theology beliefs include the elect can and do backslide into grievous sins; and can for a time continue therein, have hardened hearts and scandalize others. Again, that is their version of a real Christian.
A Calvinist gets smoked when a Christian analyses his double talk and false teachings. They are not and cannot teach holy living and itís easy to smoke a Calvinist. It makes no difference if it is Robert Morey, Matt Slick, John Piper, Paul Washer or Mr. James White. All it takes is the truth.
Calvinists like to present the only two issues as being either eternal security or never saved to begin with, thereby ruling out the possibility of spiritual death for the righteous if they turn to evil, as the Bible teaches! By ruling out the possibility of a saved person losing his salvation, they will not have to deal with scores of irreconcilable Scriptural problems created by their doctrinal fable.
The fact is: eternal security, the perseverance of the saints, once saved always saved and the preservation of the saints might have different names but all teach King David remained saved when he was in adultery and murder! They are all, therefore, dripping with a license for immorality and must be fought against by Christians! Calvinists also all teach:
the prodigal remained saved when with the prostitutes and in wild living,
Solomon remained saved when his heart turned to idolatry and he tried to murder Jeroboam,
Peter remained saved after he disowned Jesus three times!
So what does the teaching of eternal security mean for the saved today? It broadcasts, through Robert Morey and others, a loud and clear message that they too can remain saved if they:
visit prostitutes like the Prodigal
commit adultery and murder like David
disown Christ like Peter and
become idolatrous like Solomon!
That my friends is not holiness, but it is Calvinism. It is also what the father of lies, the devil, who wants us to sin, would like the Christian to believe and that is also what Robert Morey must teach as a Calvinist!
