Again, this is completely fictionalized. I didn't copy this from anywhere. I certainly do not at all agree with what is below. But I'd like some feedback on it. All non-Calvinists many not agree with the points that the Arminian preacher is advancing but here goes: Today, I want to tell all of you that Christ died for you. Now those intellectual Calvinists would object to this. They'd say:"Christ died for His Church, the elect only." Yeah, yeah, yeah. And on it goes. But I'm here today to tell ya' that Christ died for each and every one of you. He didn't miss nary a-one. He died for Judas, Hitler, Mao, all the folks that died in the Great Flood, all the people who never heard of Christ, never heard the Gospel. He died for everyone in Hell before Christ came. You ask me how all of this can be. Well, I'll tell you. I believe my Bible. I believe John 3:16. "For God so loved the WORLD." Did ya' catch that? I said the world. Does that leave anyone out? Of course not. Amen? Christ died a substitutionary death for you and me. You say, "Preacher, what does substitionary death mean?" It means He took everyone's death upon Himself on the cross of Calvary. Haven't you read 1 John 2:2? He is the propitiation for the sins of the world. Don't let them Calvinists take that verse out of context neither. Now I know it may not make sense to you, but it's true. There are some of you listening to me who might not go to Heaven. I wish that weren't the case, but it is an unfortunate fact. Did Christ die for you? Yes, He certainly did. Then you might say in reply to me:"Preacher, if He took my sins on Himself, if He died in my place, then why might I die and go to Hell?" That's the kind of objection that a Calvinist would make. I'm tellin' all of you this. Christ died for each and every one of ya'll. He took your sins and mine on that blessed tree. But just because He did that doesn't mean that you won't go to Hell. Okay, I can hear what some of you are thinking:"How can He pay for some's sins and then that person goes to Hell and has to pay for those very same sins himself in Hell forever and ever?" And I will tell you --I honestly don't know. I don't have everything figured out like those la-de-dah Calvinists do. They use legal terms and call it Double Jeopardy. How can it be fair, they say, for Christ to pay for someone's sins --but then some people have to pay for those same sins all over again in the fires of Hell for eternity? I told you I don't know how. I don't have all the answers unlike some who think they have God all figured out. I just take it by faith. Christ died for every single person in the past, present and future. And He took their sins on Himself. But it's up to every person to make a decision for Him. If they don't there's no deal. Christ's death is like an unendorsed check. Now that check could be for an incredible sum of money. But if a person doesn't sign it --it's no good. You have got to sign on the dotted line for Christ here this morning. He did everything He could for you. Now it's your turn to live up to your end of the bargain.
