1. Implication One: Death Before the Fall
To be honest I don't know what they are talking about.
2. Implication Two: Man’s Will Is Non-Existent
No, Calvinism never teaches man's will is Non-Existent but that it is enslaved to his passions, flesh, the Devil and the world. In other words, man has a self will by nature.
3. Implication Three: Jesus Did Not Die for the Whole World
Actually Calvinism does teach that Jesus died for the Whole World BUT it does not teach that Christ died for every individual.
4. Implication Four: God’s Judgment Is Distorted
Not even worthy enpugh to even respond too.
It is good to have healthy debates but this site cuts, pastes comments and then builds a straw man argument. He quotes Calvin but I wonder how much of Calvin he has actually read? In other words I think this site only distorts Calvinist views and builds straw mans.
Well without going through the entire article - I find this.
Of course this also begs the question - how many Calvinists here believe that "God CREATED the World a few billion years ago then used death, extinction, disease, extermination and predation" as His "means of creating" life in the Garden of Eden?
Because if Calvinists believe in Evolution - then they would have no problem with the argument above - about death-before-the-fall of Adam.
