It Pleases God to Damn Most People to Eternal Torment

(Before It's News)

I must admit that I do weary of Calvinist forays into proffering supposedly palliative notions for such beliefs that creatively seek to portray God as salvifically loving the very ones whom it pleased him to damn (two wills, different kinds of love, inscrutable mystery, etc.,). The truth is that the Calvinist belief in reprobation serves to effectively disembowel all Calvinist endeavors to demonstrate that God salvifically loves anyone other than the unconditionally elected.

    The title it pleases GOD to damn most people to eternal torment is hard to swallow . But in light of GODs all knowing mind HE does know those that will become HIS . Those HE fore knew He also chose and called to become conformed to the image of HIS son . And those HE predestin . For our minds this is hard to understand . But the Bible says HE is not willing that any should perish , but that all should come to repentance . A termite is a bug among bugs . If left untreated this bug will multiply and eat you out of house and home . A sinner is like this bug . It’s nature is to destroy and deviour . John 3:16 says For GOD so loved the world , not the land and sea , but the people . This is why the verse goes on to say that HE gave HIS only begotten son , that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life . John 3:17 says For GOD sent not HIS son into the world to condem the world , but that the world ( people ) through HIM might be saved . So this termite has a choice , except HIM and HIS sacrifice for your sins or reject HIM and be separated from HIM . The choice is yours . Except HIM and HE gives you a new nature . You no longer want to destroy and deviour . So question asked , are you willing to let the termites have at your home as they see fit ? Or will you do something to stop them from destroying your home ? Why should GOD respond any differently ? One sinner would end up like Lucifer who got kicked out of Heaven because he wanted to take over Heaven and kick GOD out . GOD wants no one to be separated from HIM . But HE also doesn’t want to be stabbed in the back when not looking . What choice we make actually divides us between GOD and Lucifer ( devil ) . Those not wanting GOD , Lucifer gets to claim . Now the Bible says he is here to kill , steal and destroy . So the choice determines which gets to claim you . There is no middle ground . GOD or Satan ? Good or Bad ? Life or Death ? Love or Hate ?

    Ez. 18:23: “”Do you think that I like to see wicked people die? says the Sovereign LORD. Of course not! I want them to turn from their wicked ways and live.” NLT

    The 5-point calvinism the hard shell reformers teach is heresy and blasphemy. It teaches that God is the ultimate author of evil, even the sin of rejecting Christ…

    Hyper-Calvinism, 5-Point Calvinism, Reform Theology, summed up as “TULIP”
    ____T Total Depravity
    ____U Unconditional Election
    ____L Limited Atonement
    ____I Irresistible Grace
    ____P Perseverance
    This error says that God planned from before eternity began to purposely set up individuals so that they have to reject Christ and have to go to hell. The corollary of Unconditional Election is Unconditional Reprobacy, which a form of blasphemy. Who would want to worship a god that planned from eternity past to burn their sweet old unsaved grandmother in a grease fire in hell, and then used his sovereignty powers to make it so? This error also says that human will is reduced to that of a robot doing its programmed functions since grace is irresistible. This error says that people who meet the minimum standards for a salvation experience and then turn traitor on God like Judas Iscariot (and basically live for the devil the rest or their lives) are nevertheless saved. This is the “once saved always saved” error. See Hebrews 6: 4-7 and many others that refute this belief.

      …jkbtb…Here’s the thing…We have a thousand years of “assistance” from YHVH’s very elect, to understand the WORD…or at least, ‘conscious’, beings do. There is a class of individuals that the LORD tells us, are spiritually ‘dead’. They go through the millennium, in an unconscious state…and are introduced to the devil, once again, at the end of the millennium. They follow Satan into perdition, and are gone…even from “memory”.
