THE WESTMINSTER CONFESSION OF FAITH (1646), which is the "Standard Creed" for the majority of Calvinists, has this on the "fall of man" " Our first parents, begin seduced by the subtilty and temptations of Satan, sinned in eating the forbidden fruit. This their sin God was pleased, according to his wise and holy counsel, to permit, having purposed to order it to his own gloryW (http://www.reformed.org/documents/index.html?mainframe=westminster_conf_of_faith.html) Can anyone show me from Scripture, where it says that God was in any way "pleased" with the sin of Adam and Eve? I have before me the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (1969 ed.), where I have looked up the meanings of "pleased" "Affected by feelings of satisfaction or pleasure; contended, gratified" (Vol. II, p.1522) This meaning is from the Middle Ages, which would be the time of the writing of this confession. Clearly the language shows that the this Confession does not represent what the Bible has to say on this very important doctrine, - the fall of man. We read in Genesis 6:6 that sin (including the fall", "grieved Him at His heart". Completely the opposite to what we read in this "Confession", which is suposed to be based on the Bible. Yet another distortion of the Truth as taught in Scripture. I am bound to be accused by Calvinists of not really understanding Calvinism. This is their usual line now, espacially when they don't have an answer to something.
