A comprehensive response to Calvinism.
Predestination or fate as expressed in reformed theology
- unconditional election or Calvinism - has been a source
of controversy for centuries. Not surprisingly this set of
determinist beliefs has been the cause of division in the
Christian church and in society. It became the foundation
for the belief in apartheid. In this book Jacques More addresses the bible passages
involved to enable the removal of this red herring and
divisive dogma from the midst of Christians:
For 4 centuries conditional predestination was the view
of the early church. Paulís teaching on conditional predestination in Romans
8 is explained. Answers to the passages used by Calvinists: Romans 9,
Acts 13:48, Ephesians 1, John 6:44, et al. A challenge to bible societies in regards to biased
translations. A discussion of the limits of Godís Knowledge.
