We are suffering and declining today because of that theme expressed in the old Frank Sinatra song: “I Did It My Way.” But, with the church embracing the approach of the current trend and employing an approach which basically appeals to what people desire, there is little wonder that it is losing its influence and its ability to truly worship God.
Calvinists insist that man is born dead in sin and therefore “corpse-like” in his abilities to respond to God’s life giving truth. Therefore, according to their logic, God must bring the corpse back to life so that he will certainly believe God’s revealed truth.
We have witnessed a constant downward turn in our government, in our home life, our finances, our insatiable appetites for material goods and our respect for life and morality.
As we examine our investment, we have the right to expect a greater amount of information.
Calvinists are very clear at times that sin entered into the world and that people spend eternity in hell because God made a voluntary decision for them to be there, which means that He could have chosen, if it pleased Him, for it to have been otherwise.
