OF GRACE (D.O.G.S
WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S”
I fell off my chair when I first watched the two idiots, Larry and Richard, in a boat, with a dead Bernie propped up between them, motoring by some onlookers on the shore, pretending that Bernie was not dead, by attaching one end of a rope to the dead Bernie’s wrist, and manipulating it into up and down waving movements, by means of a pulley.
this apply to Calvinism?
Simple … theological numbskulls are now waving the dead arms of Calvinism’s twin sister by pretending she’s not dead … she’s now called The Doctrines of Grace (D.O.G.S) … “Look …she must be alive … she’s waving her arms!”
It also reminds you of that Monty Python sketch of the customer trying to convince the pet shop owner, that the parrot was not dead … just asleep!
Having been discovered for the Satanic blasphemy that Calvinism is, its proponents have substituted the term ‘Doctrines of Grace’ for the dead T.U.L.I.P. … you know Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, Perseverance of the saints … terms which can be found nowhere in the Bible.
Without going into detail, we pity the Calvinists, indeed the D.O.G.S, who have not realised that Total Depravity does not mean total inability when it comes to free will.
So scurrying like cockroaches surprised by torchlight, the Calvinist has sought shelter under the most respectable rock called grace … yes ... we will no longer call ourselves Calvinists but the Doctrine of Grace-ists (D.O.G.S) … which all sounds very good … until you realise their definition of grace is not the imputed grace of Sola Fide, Sola Christo, Sola Gratia, but the infused grace of Roman Catholicism … never imputed … but imparted.
While professing to be Christians D.O.G.S do not realize they are feeding on Rome’s rotting carcase.
Looking to ingratiate themselves with Christians of sound doctrine (1 Corinthians 11:1: 2 Timothy 4:3), these subtil sophists (Genesis 3:1) say “we are all children of grace” … all the while knowing their definition of grace is totally opposite to the meaning of Pauline grace.
Q: How can a man be born again before he becomes born again?
A: Impossible … but not to the D.O.G.S.
They believe … and cop this Dear Reader … a man must be born again before he gets to be born again.
They must be Irish … you know … to be sure to be sure? But, of course, Roman Catholics are … aren’t they?
They have taken the term “born again” and placed it outside of Christ … before salvation … whereas the Bible puts being “born again” after death in Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13).
They say you must be born again outside of Christ so that you can be born again inside of Christ! What? This doesn’t pass The Pub Test! It looks like this:
Are we to be surprised? No … D.O.G.S believe that election and being chosen and called also happen outside of Christ, but that is entirely contrary to the Bible … they see “into” instead of “in” (Ephesians 1:4).
Yes Dear Reader, in studying the Ephesians 1:4 verse, you will realize the great gulf that is fixed (Luke 16:26) between the meanings of these two different words of “into” and “in”.
Paul’s doctrine says when we are in Christ, when we are saved, we are then elected, chosen and called to be something. Our journey in Christ then starts. We are then pre-destinated to a destination of being conformed to the image of God’s Son (Romans 8:29).
Yes Dear Reader, these two teeny weeny little words of “in” and “into” separate the sheep from the goats (Matthew 25:32-33)
ordo salutis, order of
salvation, goes like this:
The totally depraved man is elected before the foundation of the world … then regenerated and born again 2,000 years later, by the infused grace of the Holy spirit … and then is able to believe of his own free will and become born again.
They wrongly believe God ‘justifies the regenerated godly’ but never ‘justifieth the ungodly’ (Romans 4:5).
Not even having the studying ability of a squashed wombat (2 Timothy 4:3), these intellectual Pied Piping luminaries unfortunately play their pipe to the destruction of the average Christian church-goer.
The end result being, that the scriptures are wrest (a word that gives rise to ‘wrestling’ … yes Dear Reader, like a wrestler you see on TV) … they wrestle the scriptures into the ground, twisting and contorting the limbs to submit the true scriptures to their tradition (Mark 7:13; Colossians 2:8).
We really pity these D.O.G.S … but then again … maybe God hasn’t chosen them to believe … or elected … to believe the truth! Wow! What irony for them!
But of course the end will still be the same … can’t or won’t … they remain double minded in God’s sight and will receive nothing (James 1:8; James 4:8).
Dear Reader, as the Lord leads, a series of articles will further expose the D.O.G.
dreadful thing to be a DOG … you know … GOD
