John Calvin himself taught that God refused to extend saving grace to the majority of mankind, even while He condemns them for the unbelief that invariably results from His decision! An illustration may help here... Imagine yourself in the room of a bed-bound quadraplegic, the paralyzed victim of a severed spinal cord. You hold in your hand an amazing medicine that quickly heals even the worst nerve damage. You tell the patient what the medicine is and what it can do for them. Then you add: "Now keep in mind that this is yours to have absolutely free. I won't charge you one cent for it. All you need to do is reach out your hand and take it. That's all I ask. But if you don't, you can't have it." Can the medicine do what you say it can do? YES! Can the cripple meet your one condition? NO! Do you know he cannot possibly do what you ask? YES! But that's not all. When the patient doesn't do what you ask, you condemn him for not doing it. You tell him he won't be healed...not because you didn't offer the medicine to him, but because he refused to accept it. You then turn on your heel and walk out of the room, never to return. He will NEVER see your medicine again. Admittedly the analogy is perverse, disgusting and monstrous. But is it not a fairly accurate picture of the behavior Calvinism attributes to almighty God? ONLY THE CRUELEST, MOST DESPICABLE HYPOCRITE - OR THE INSANE - COULD DO WHAT CALVINISM SAYS GOD DOES AND SERIOUSLY EXPECT OTHERS TO CALL HIM "FAIR," "JUST" AND "RIGHTEOUS."
