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.
