Hier folgt eine Abhandlung darüber, weshalb der Calvinismus eine Irrlehre ist.
T.U.L.I.P. ist ein Akronym für den Calvinismus und steht für:
Total Depravity = Völlige/Totale Verderbtheit [mit andern Worten die Lehre der Erbsünde] Unconditional Election = bedingungslose Erwählung (unfähig, für Gott empfänglich zu sein, bekannt als radikale Verderbtheit) [Gott verfügt souverän über die Erlösung, die nur für die Auserwählten gilt] Limited Atonement = beschränktes/limitiertes Sühneopfer (von Jesus) [Christus starb nur für die Auserwählten; alle anderen sind auf ewig verdammt, selbst die nicht auserwählten Säuglinge] Irresistible Grace = unwiderstehliche Gnade [nur die Auserwählten, für die Christus starb, können der Gnade nicht widerstehen] Perseverance of the Saints = Beharrlichkeit der Gläubigen [auf ewig sicher, ungeachtet der Verantwortung oder Notwendigkeit für Gerechtigkeit]
Der Calvinismus ist nichts Neues
Prediger 1,9: "Was ist gewesen? Das, was sein wird! Und was hat man gemacht? Das, was man machen wird! Und es gibt nichts Neues unter der Sonne." (Schlachterbibel 1951) Die Lehre des Calvinismus bzw. die Lehre der totalen Verderbtheit kam schon früher in die christliche Kirche hinein. Augustinus (von Hippo) trug wesentlich dazu bei, indem er manichäistisches Gedankengut in die Kirche hineinbrachte. Später in der Reformation (mit Martin Luther, Johannes Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli) lebte dieses Gedankengut dann in der reformierten/protestantischen Theologie wieder auf.
Die Westminster-Confession ist DAS Calvinisten-Bekenntnis.
Die einzelnen Punkte der Reihe nach widerlegt
Total Depravity / völlige Verderbtheit
Unconditional Election / bedingungslose Erwählung
Limited Atonement / beschränkte Sühnung
Irresistible Grace / unwiderstehliche Gnade
Perseverance of the Saints / Beharrlichkeit der Heiligen/Gläubigen

Charles Spurgeons Verteidigung von Calvinismus Widerlegt
Was Ist Calvinismus In Einfachen Worten Erklärt
Calvinismus ist eine beliebte heutige gefälschte Theologie, welche mit Johannes Calvin (1509-1564) begann. Johannes Calvin hatte seine Lehren von Augustinus von Hippo (354-430), demselben Mann, welcher vom Römischen Katholizismus verherrlicht wird und behauptet er sei einer von ihren Leuten.
Die 5 Hauptpunkte des Calvinismus, which sets Calvinismus apart, are: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace and Perseverance of the Saints. Those points are also referred to as TULIP - Calvinism's definition. If one point of Calvinismus is wrong, all five points are wrong, according to one of Calvinism's own theologians! That is how closely they are all interlinked.
Reformierte Theologie_ (Calvinismus) basiert on man having KEINEN freien Willen and choice in his salvation. Salvation, laut einem Calvinist ist, is given only to the ones God sovereignly elects to salvation. Solche Leute (die Auserwählten) können die Errettung NICHT ausschlagen/ablehnen. Sie allein sind die alleinigen, für welche Jesus starb. (Laut ihnen starb Jesus nicht für alle Menschen.)
Die Erwählten können ihre Errettung NICHT verlieren, ungeachtet dessen, wie widerlich sie sich anschliessend verhalten. KEINE Sünde der Auslassung oder commission könnte diese Errettung möglicherweise gefährden. Die Beispiele die sie hierfür anführen sind König David, Salomo und Peter, was bedeutet (laut Calvinismus), dass eine Person mit Errettung (ein Christ) Ehebruch und Mord begehen kann gleichwie David, sein Herz sich Götzendienst zuwenden kann wie Salomo und dass er Jesus drei Mal verleugnen kann wie Petrus und trotzdem gerettet bleibt.
We can also add to that list with Johannes Calvin himself, who burned Michael Servetus at the stake with green wood and never repented of his murderous, cruel and non-Christian behavior! Calvinisten denken, dass Johannes Calvin nun im Himmel ist.
Calvinismus verleugnet, dass eine gerechte Person geistlich sterben (Errettung verlieren) wird, indem sie sich dem Bösen zuwendet. The last point of Calvinismus commonly called eternal security or once saved always saved by many (or the Perseverance of the Saints by strict Calvinisten) is the most DEADLY and the most tightly embraced point of Calvinism. Some who embrace eternal security deny being even a one point Calvinist, like Dave Hunt, thereby causing unneeded confusion.
The teaching of once saved always saved (or Eternal Security) has people thinking they are irrevocably bound for heaven because of a past point of regeneration in spite of the present sins they are currently committing, even if those sins are adultery, drunkenness, theft, lying, murder, slander, idolatry, etc. Their Reformed Tradition has sadly nullified the word of God (1 Cor. 6:9,10; Eph. 5:5-7; Gal. 5:19-21; Rev. 21:8; etc.)!
Lehren Der Gnade / Gnadenlehren (Doctrines Of Grace)
The doctrines of Calvinism are sometimes referred to as the _doctrines of grace _and have made powerful inroads into the apostate church. Though popular, all points of Calvinismus are unscriptural, even if the popular cigar smoking Charles Spurgeon was a Calvinist, who is called the Prince of Preachers by the uninformed and because of publisher's propaganda. Various other exalted Calvinisten, past and present (like Theodore Beza, George Whitefield, John Knox, John Bunyan, William Carey, John Piper and John MacArthur) are also responsible for the spread of Calvinism, which has smeared the holy image of a Christian -- but camouflaged under their never really saved argument, but lucidly revealed under their version of the sin unto death.
Die Wahrheit ist: Der Mensch hat einen freien Willen beides vor und nach der anfänglichen Errettung. Eine gerettete Person kann irregeführt werden, sich dem Bösen zuwenden und geistlich sterben. Daher ist es des Menschen Verantwortung (NICHT Gottes) unter Gnade to hold on (Rev. 3:11; 2:25; Heb. 3:6; etc.), unsere Lampen brennend zu halten (Lk. 12:35), continue im Glauben (Col. 1:23) and endure hatred bis zum Ende um gerettet zu werden (Mt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11). Jesu Schafe folgen ihm (John 10:27). Many have failed in that regard over the centuries (besides König Salomo und der Apostel Judas Ischariot) und konsequenterweise got back on the road zur Hölle again. Ein grosser Vorteil, um von der Strasse zur Hölle abzukommen ist es für den Rückfälligen, wenn er weiss, dass er wieder auf der Strasse zur Hölle ist, und da dies rundweg von den Calvinisten verleugnet/verneint wird, werden weiterhin massenhaft Leute aufgrund dieser Lehre verderben!

Though it is basic and fundamental to the Scriptures regarding the Christian life, very few in our day seem to be aware of the fight-to-death conflict Christians are in with the sinful nature.
One of the most disheartening aspects about Calvinismus is how the proponents sometimes try to conceal what they actually believe, but readily teach the same at other times, under different circumstances. I have seen this over and over throughout the years regarding their fifth point: the perseverance of the saints.
Dozens of DANGEROUS false teachers are listed here. Some are Reformed, others are not.
What does it take to disprove eternal security? Is it hard or impossible to disprove this teaching? Is one forced to logically consider the Calvinistic understanding of election to properly know about eternal security or not?
Ein guter Cartoon der Calvinismus widerlegt (pdf).
Die Calvinistischen Konzepte von Total Depravity (und Erbsünde) sind nicht biblisch. Babies und kleine Kinder sind geistlich lebendig. Alle Babies die sterben, go into the presence of God and not hell, unlike what Calvinismus lehrt. Es gibt ein Alter of accountability, which is implied in der Bibel.
If there has ever been a chapter describing the Christian that has been hated and avoided by the popular religious leaders of our day it has to be Romans 6. This is especially true among the eternal security proponents who: (1) want us to think we must sin all the time and (2) distort grace into something it isn't.
For a person to say that a professing Christian was never saved, if he turns away from God to sin, is fallacious in at least 7 different areas. If you are a Christian, carefully ponder the following so you can help others see the dangerous folly of such a declaration.
It is very common to run into religious people who would identify themselves as four point Calvinisten, three point Calvinisten on down to one point Calvinisten. Such people reject one or more of the five points of Calvinism's TULIP, but always seem to embrace the most deadly of the five - the perseverance of the saints (or eternal security). How logical is it for such a person who calls himself a Calvinist to be less than a five point Calvinist in light of the theology of Calvinism?
The Calvinisten exalt Augustine of Hippo as a great theologian. In fact, Johannes Calvin systemized Augustine's doctrines and this is, to a large degree, the Calvinismus presented today. What a surprise it will be for many to read the following prayer from him, their real founder, to Mary for salvation.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a famous Baptist minister who, among other things, pastored the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, smoked cigars and wrote a Defense Of Calvinism. That so-called "defense" has been examined and refuted!
Spurgeons Verteidigung des Calvinismus Widerlegt [mp3](http://media10.cqservers.com/evangelicaloutreach.org/Supplemental Appendix L_32.mp3) (From the audio book of The Believer’s Conditional Security)
You are about to read an important part of church history from the Reformation period that has been so concealed in our day that very few people know the facts. Brace yourself for a shock. On October 27, 1553 Johannes Calvin, the founder of Calvinism, had Michael Servetus, the Spanish physician, burned at the stake just outside of Geneva for his doctrinal heresies!
We live in such a dark spiritual hour that people who have behaved in a most reprehensible way and taught in clear bold contradistinction to the Scriptures are held up as great spiritual lights and theologians. Johannes Calvin is such a man!
Since our book, "The Believer's Conditional Security" has exposed the Johannes Calvin - Michael Servetus scandal, some dye-in-the-wool Calvinisten have futilely tried to protect their leader from the obvious by endeavoring to shift the blame away from Calvin and confusing the issue. They continue to maintain it was not Johannes Calvin who was responsible for his inhumane unscriptural death!
If one is acquainted with the various ways eternal security is presented, he will notice there are two versions of this false doctrine. The Reformed version that the Calvinisten embrace is called the Perseverance of the Saints.
What is Calvinism? Is It different today than it was? No. Calvinismus has always allowed for a Christian to be immoral under their warped concepts of grace and salvation.
The real issue isn't if one was truly saved or not (even though that is important), but instead is he saved now. There are over a dozen examples of people in the Bible who once had salvation and afterwards died spiritually and became lost again.
The following are misconceptions and strawman arguments that eternal security people use to falsely accuse and discredit Christians like us who teach a conditional security for the believer.
Short audio message on how one should understand John 10:28.
Can the Christian now relax and do nothing as far as his salvation is concerned? Does salvation security exist to that degree? If not, then what should he do? Is there salvation maintenance under grace? Is doing anything a violation of Biblical grace? Eternal Security's Imputed Righteousness In a nutshell, the teaching of imputed righteousness from the Reformed view point is: a person once saved is holy and righteous without living holy and righteously (eternal security). In other words, a Christian takes on Jesus' righteousness at the point of salvation and this righteous and holy standing before God can never be changed even by the most vile and heinous evils that could afterwards be committed. Salvation Observations From James 5:19,20 Certainly one of the powerfully devastating passages to eternal security is the last two verses in the book of James. Sadly, too few people are aware of these verses and those who are probably first noticed them in their own personal Bible reading time and never heard them taught.

Emails Bezüglich Calvinismus
(EMAIL #1) As a family, we have been attending a '_____Baptist' church in _________, Germany for the past 2+ years. My husband's parents are non-believers, but I grew up in a Penticostal church and my husband started attending church with me and gave his heart to the Lord in 2007. Then we moved to Germany in 2008 and started looking for a suitable church. We came upon this Baptist church with an Afrikaans pastor (I am also Afrikaans, from South Africa. My husband is German) and loved them straight away. We had no idea what doctorine they followed as I had no idea such doctorines existed and was furthest from my mind - I was a little naive. They believed in baptising grown-ups and therefore I assumed that we believed the same thing (gospel). I had several questions and got answers regarding salvation etc., but always told my husband that the Holy Spirit warns me and that I somehow cannot fully except this teaching. I didn't really want to attend at this church, but for my husbands (penticost praise and worship and sermons were too loud in his opinion) sake went there, but never felt 'at home'. I always maintained that i will never be a Baptist and that it was too dead as they did not practice the spiritual gifts, etc. Later on it came to light that they are Calvinisten. Then it started getting serious. The situation escalated to such a degree that I refused to attend church anymore (about 4 weeks now) as it feels to me like I am getting forced to decide what doctorine I will accept and that I am caught up in something I don't want to be in. I am now in such a debate that I don't know how to get out of it. I get accused of not wanting to know the truth, not knowing scripture, that my family (mom) doesn't know scripture well enough to help me (my mom is 71 and grew up in a God-fearing home where both parents evangelised among people of colour in SA for many years and mom worked for the Lord until this very day, playing the Organ in church, etc.), that I must make very sure that I follow the right doctorine and be careful in deciding for the Armenian doctorin and not lending my ears out to the enemy proclaiming this doctorin, that i blaspheme against Godly men like John Calvyn by saying that he was a murderer (as history states - having had people killed if they didn't accept his teaching), etc. It is like psychology being excersized on me and it makes me more and more uncomfortable. I have now written a letter to our pastor stating that I withdraw from church on severel grounds stated and that I want nothing to do with any doctorine, regardless Armenian or Calvanist, but only the Gospel. I am so afraid and don't know where to go and what church to attend anymore. I feel alone and utterly hurt and disappointed. It is terrible and now I understand why so many people do not want to attend a church anymore. Please help me in my decision. What is right and what is wrong? Are all believes based on either Armeniasm or Calvinismus as they claim and if so, which one is right? Aren't these philosophies exactly what the bible warns us about? I hope you can help me and look forward to a positive answer in Christ Jesus. Kind regards
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Sorry for the distress and problems, but you are not alone! Many Christians get attacked by various dangerous false doctrines. Calvinismus is only one, but it is certainly a raging issue, with the last point once saved always saved being the biggest issue. Everything I have observed, even in the secular world, has opposite views on almost each issue (or doctrine). Hence, until you go to the Bible directly and let that message control your life and doctrinal beliefs you will be tossed back and forth. To get established you must learn the Biblical message by quality time directly in the Scriptures.
If One Is a Five Point Calvinist
If one is a 5 point Calvinist, his (false) god has predestined some to heaven and most to hell with NO CHOICE on man's part! The savior in Calvinismus did NOT die for all people, but only for those who will go to heaven. The Christian in Calvinismus can commit adultery and murder (like David), idolatry (like Solomon) and disown Jesus (like Peter) and not die spiritually! Hence, since these are all major serious errors, NO PERSON SHOULD BE A CALVINIST! ALL 5 points are demonic with the fifth point being the most deadly.
Johannes Calvin got his teachings from the Catholic theologian Augustine of Hippo, who wanted salvation but not without Mary. Calvin mercilessly burned Michael Servetus at the stake with green wood because of doctrinal differences (much like the Catholic church murdered non Catholics)! Calvin was a IRRLEHRER, but because we are suffering under the influence of Calvinismus he is exalted and described as a brilliant theologian and link from the apostle Paul to the present! Few seem to be aware of the damage he has done to multitudes and the theology he has left behind.
We believe that we are saved by grace (Eph. 2:8,9) but we can fall from grace (Gal. 5:2-4). We are justified by faith (Rom. 5:1) but our faith can become shipwrecked (1 Tim. 1:19,20) and cease to exist (Lk. 8:13; Rom. 11:19-23). We are not under the law (Rom. 6:14,15) but if you live according to the sinful nature you will die (Rom. 8:13). Paul taught against legalism (Gal. 5:3,4) but he also taught that no immoral, impure or greedy person has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God (Eph. 5:5-7). We are not saved by works (Eph. 2:8,9) but to reap eternal life and not destruction you must sow to please the Spirit and not the sinful nature (Gal. 6:8,9). God is faithful to us (1 Jn. 1:9; 1 Cor. 10:13) but we must be faithful to him to the very end of our lives to escape the lake of fire or second death (Rev. 2:10,11). God surely loves us (Jn. 3:16; Mk. 10:21; Rom. 8:35-39) but those who inherit the kingdom of God love God (Jam 2:5; 1 Cor. 2:9) and to love God means to obey his commands (Jn. 14:15; 1 Jn. 5:3). We have freedom in Christ (Gal. 5:1) but this freedom is not to indulge the sinful nature (Gal. 5:13; 1 Pet 2:16).

...Gott segne dich.
(EMAIL #2) How I love your subject! Thank you very much for this insight. It just confirmed what I already believe. I have hope now and thank the Lord for people standing up for the truth like yourselves. Continue this good work in the Lord as there are many people like myself being under the attack. I believe that the message of the gospel has been made simple for all (even little children like Jesus said) to understand. God is holy and therefore we have to live holy lives and do His will. I am not a major intellectual and certainly do not want to study any man-made doctorine. I just want to read the Word and let Jesus be in control of my life and no man. Thank your for your invitation. We will certainly visit your on-line church. God bless,
(Bible Answer) Thanks for the encouraging words and may God help you help people in your part of the world. SOULS continue to perish. There are many enemies of grace, even some who reject once saved always saved. Hence, even though one may claim to teach holiness and flatly reject once saved always saved, he still may be teaching a license for immorality! Ask about David when in adultery and murder. If ANY person says he was still saved after his adultery and murder, that person is spreading the DEVIL'S POISON and will hurt SOULS, and maybe even in a greater way than if he taught David remained saved and also openly embraced once saved always saved. Check this out Acid Test to spot a license for immorality God bless you. Heb. 3:14.

Hängen oder Fallen Alle Fünf Punkte Des Calvinismus Zusammen?
ALLE Fünf Punkte des Calvinismus FALLEN
What about the five points of Calvinism? It is very common to run into religious people who would identify themselves as four point Calvinisten, three point Calvinisten on down to one point Calvinisten. Such people reject one or more of the five points of Calvinism’s TULIP, but always seem to embrace the most deadly of the five—the perseverance of the saints (or eternal security). Wie logisch ist es für solche eine Person, die sich selbst einen Calvinisten nennt, im Lichte der Theologie des [Calvinismus](http://gesundelehre.bplaced.net/forwarder.php?url=http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/calvinismrefuted.html weniger als ein fünf Punkte Calvinist zu sein?
Certainly, to the surprise of many, such is an inconsistency, according to one of their chief spokesmen, the deceased Dr. Edwin H. Palmer. Edwin H. Palmer graduated from Harvard, served in the Marines, then received both a Th.B and a Th.D in different Reformed seminaries. He was also an instructor of Systematic Theology in a Reformed Seminary. Hence, Edwin H. Palmer is certainly qualified to comment on how the five points of Calvinismus are interrelated, since he understood his theology so well. Edwin H. Palmer, sagte das Folgende in Bezug auf den fünften Punkt des Calvinismus:
This is strictly a Reformed doctrine and hangs or falls together with the other four points that we have been discussing. There are, however, Christians today who hold to the perseverance of the saints while at the same time rejecting the other four points. We believe, however, and will try to show later on, that this is an inconsistency in their thinking. (The Five Points of Calvinism, Moelker Printing Co. [Grand Rapids, Michigan], 1954 ed, p. 59.)
In keeping with his expert opinion of this theology, Edwin H. Palmer went on to write about the perseverance of the saints:
This doctrine also naturally follows from the doctrine of the limited atonement ... (ibid., p. 61).
Mit anderen Worten, falls die Lehre of limited atonement wahr ist, so ist es auch the perseverance of the saints. Aber andererseits, falls limited atonement untrue ist, so ist es auch Ewige Sicherheit. The above two quotes from Edwin H. Palmer sind hilfreich für Christen, die wissen, dass alle fünf Punkte des Calvinismus nicht von Gott sind und especially desire to help free some Calvinisten from the theological snare they are trapped in.
Viele Calvinisten, who are less than five pointers, lehnen correctly limited atonement ab, aufgrund the Scriptural evidence which powerfully and clearly teaches that Jesus für alle Menschen starb, die jemals gelebt haben und nicht nur für jene, die am Ende will enter God's kingdom. It is, therefore, inconsistent for eternal security proponents to reject limited atonement and still believe in the favorite fifth point-eternal security! Again, this is not my conclusion, but the conclusion of one who knew Calvinismus when he was alive, viel besser denn die vast majority does heutzutage.
In 1980, the year of Edwin H. Palmer's death, an enlarged edition of this same book was released. In this more recent edition the words were slightly changed from the previous quote, while retaining its essence:
Alle fünf Punkte des Calvinismus hängen oder fallen zusammen (The Five Points of Calvinism, Baker Books [Grand Rapids, Michigan], 1980 enlarged edition, p. 69).
Dear reader, if you know that any of the five points of Calvinismus are unscriptural, then the rest are as well. All a Christian has to do, therefore, is to refute any of the five points of Calvinismus and by doing so he has destroyed all five points, according to Dr. Edwin H. Palmer himself. But dear Christian, please be assured that people who embrace Calvinism's beloved fifth point won't surrender it easily. They often feel just like Palmer did as reflected in his following statement:
The teaching of "once saved, always saved** is one of the grandest of Biblical teachings** (ibid., p. 79).
Es sollte offensichtlich sein, dass jeder Calvinist, einschliesslich Fünf-Punkte-Calvinist Edwin H. Palmer, theologisch falsch liegt, da sie alle an diese mythischen Dogmen glauben!
