I have recently begun a study comparing the works of John Calvin to the Bible. As a result, I have come up against several questions which I would like ask the Calvinists on this board. These questions are not given in any specific order other than that of their occurance to me. Any help in answering these questions will be very much appreciated. 1. Could you please explain Matt 5:21-22 in light of election? 2. Could you please ecplain Matt 5:28-29 in light of election? 3. Are there any sins which an elect person cannot commit? 4. Can you explain Matt 7:17-21 in light of election? 5. Can those who are elected to damnation know who is elected to salvation (Matt 5:14-16)? 6. Can you explain the necessity of electing some to damnation? 7. If grace is irresistable, what need is there for Christ's death (Matt 9:12)? 8. Is faith irresistable? 9. What is the "measure of faith" mentioned in Romans 12:3? 10. Can the unelect perceive the declaration of the heavens (Psalm 19:1, Rom 1:18)? 11. Can you explain Romans 1:21-32? 12. Is Romans 2:4 referring to the unelect? 13. Have the unelect heard the gospel (Rom 10:16-18)? 14. Who were the "disobedient and gainsaying people" of Romans 10:21? 15. Is God capable of graffing unbelievers into the olive tree of Romans 11? 16. How can Israelites be both lost and elect (Rom 11:28)? 17. Does God give us commandments which He does not honor (Rom 17:17)? 18. Does God love those He did not elect to salvation (I John 4:7-8)? 19. Does Acts 17:30 refer to all men or just the elect? 20. Was John Calvin one of those elected to salvation?
