Two Acronyms TULIP vs. CURED The acrostic TULIP has been around for some time. I am sure there are scores of counter acrostics out there but no one has coined one that has stuck as well as the TULIP has for the Calvinist. Well I have one that will stick. I want everyone that is non-Calvinist to take it and freely used it. It time for non-Calvinist to step up to the plate and dominate in all areas of literature, public media, others and make sure the everyday believer is informed about this religious philosophy know as Philosophical Calvinism. As I write this post, my heart is over whelmed with a theme many of us know. Calvinism scoffs at the old fashion invitation in churches. If you are a like believer who believes that old fashion invitation are effective in ministry is seeing the lost come to Christ then take time to visit First Baptist Church Woodstock web site and listen to the AM service by Dr. Bill Stafford. I say this form my heart and I know that the others don’t like it but many of you know as I do that countless thousands are saved each week because Soul winning Evangelical Churches are out telling lost people about Jesus. While this is going on and souls are being saved the leaches of philosophical Calvinism are licking their chops to run to their side and confuse them, steal their joy, and purpose from their hearts. Philosophical Calvinism is a killer of churches, their growth is from proselytes. This humanistic prideful misguided pseudo called Christians belief is wrong. Join me in speaking out. The field is still white unto harvest. Just as I am, with-out one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me, And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Just as I am, and waiting not To rid my soul of one dark blot, To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Just as I am, though tossed about With many a conflict, many a doubt, Fightings and fears within, without, O Lamb of God, I come!, I come! Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind: Sight, riches, healing, of the mind, Yea, all I need, in Thee I find, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God I come! I come! Remember when you came to Christ. Remember when you heart was tender and in love with Jesus. Here you are now caught up is struggles and striving that has robbed you heart and souls of its peace. You are caught up in doctrines that rob you soul and mind of the sweet fellowship and passion to see the lost come to Christ. Is it now your goal to convince, not the lost, but Christians they are not what they are with a false Christians philosophy. You know you are without joy and fighting against God. You can stop. You can surrender. You can return to Love and kindness, and passion for the lost. Why not today. How many Calvinist are on their knees in tears and brokenness for the lost. Jesus is the lover of all souls and you having left your first love now seek to damn people to hell with this philosophy. As the spirit of God is convicting the lost he is also talking to you. You know it. You can stop letting pride steal your joy. You can scoff, reason, run, but you know your joy is robbed with this errant view of Christianity. Those of you that are believers in this philosophy of the Tulip there is always hope for you to forsake it and return to Biblical Truth. Leave that soul hating religion today. Jesus is the lover of souls. All Calvinism is - is man's pride and arrogance. Don't let your heart be poisoned by this venom. If you are in a Church like this leave. Starting today settle it once for all and leave. There is a Church somewhere that honors God and seeks the salvation of the Lost. Just do it. For all who are following the sound Biblical Teaching, which is not Calvinism, I have offered the acrostic CURED for you to use and copy and preach on, and teach on. I urge you to listen to sermons similar to Dr. Vines that you have access to from the pod cast at the First Baptist Church Woodstock. Here is a series he as taught at FBCW Dr. Vines Oct. 1 PM service Sermon on Liberalism Dr. Vines Oct 8 PM service Sermon dealing with Calvinism Dr. Vines Oct 22 PM service Sermon dealing with Tongues Come back to :jesus: :godisgood: He is waiting on you to return to compassion, joy, love, kindness, passion for the lost. :jesus: is the answer - are you filled to the top with His love? It is never to late.
