How Precious is the Blood

1Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

The question is, how precious? Is it only a little bit precious so it can only redeemed few chosen one?

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

The precious blood of Chris is so very precious it not only can redeem the elect, but have also bought even those false teachers that deny it.

1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

But, it specially effect only those that believe.

Calvinism: My way is God’s way

Slander!
No Calvinist ever said that! Never!

Yes, no Calvinist have directly said this exact wording.
This is just a summary of Calvinist’s doctrine of predestination.

God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass; yet so as thereby neither is God the author of sin; nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.
— The Westminster Confession of Faith (1643)

While the word “God the author of sin” is debatable by many within Calvinist themselves, most Calvinist will agree that all and everything is ordained by God’s will.

So, whatever i do and did, it’s already ordained by God.

So, according to Calvinism, Leon Trotsky, Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, all their murder on millions of men is God’s ordained.

All the mass shooting is God’s ordained. God’s most wise and holy counsel of his own will.

All suicide bombers is God’s ordained. God’s way.

These are the real slanders against God’s character. God do not sin and will never have anything to do with sin, especially God will never ordained anyone to sin.

What the bible tell us?

Isaiah 55
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Calvinism vs Bible

Bible: God could never ordained something against His sinless most holy nature.
God could never ordained something that He hate us to do.
Bible tell us that sin is actually against God’s will.
God could never ordained something against His own will.

God can only ordain, or act, accord to His most holy nature.

Calvinism: the house of the proud is already ordained by God.
Proverbs 15:25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.

Calvinism: the thoughts of the wicked are ordained by God. in fact, every thought is ordained by God.
Proverbs 15:26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
Isaiah 65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;

Calvinism: God ordained all idolatries.
Jeremiah 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.
19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind

Calvinism: God ordained whoso offend those which believe Him
Matthew 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Calvinism: God ordained all offences
Matthew 18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Calvinism: God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass
Isaiah 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

Jesus Lord has bought the false prophets and false teachers

John Calvin and his blind followers accused that God only loves and saves the elected elites and never bought the reprobates.

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Jesus has bought them, yet they still deny, reject, *resist* God’s grace and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
