After digging deeper into some of the links on ther webiste I have discovered something that has been told to me by a few people, but never could get any proof/confirmation...... until now. They are Calvinists. How do I know, well, on their youtube channel they have a playlist titled "good biblical doctrine" and it has one video. The video is titled "A defense of Calvinism". I had been told by a few people on the VFD with me that they were indeed Calvinists, I just didnt know for sure.
If you dont know what the Calvinist doctrine is then it can be summarized by the acronym TULIPT
erseverance of the Saints
Total Depravity - As a result of Adam’s fall, the entire human race is affected; all humanity is dead in trespasses and sins. Man is unable to save himself
Unconditional Election - Because man is dead in sin, he is unable to initiate response to God; therefore, in eternity past God elected certain people to salvation. Election and predestination are unconditional; they are not based on man’s response because man is unable to respond, nor does he want to.
Limited Atonement - Because God determined that certain ones should be saved as a result of God’s unconditional election, He determined that Christ should die for the elect alone
. All whom God has elected and Christ died for will be saved
Irresistible Grace - Those whom God elected and Christ died for, God draws to Himself through irresistible grace. God makes man willing to come to Him. When God calls, man responds
Perseverance of the Saints - The precise ones God has elected and drawn to Himself through the Holy Spirit will persevere in faith. None whom God has elected will be lost; they are eternally secure
It makes sense now, I have heard that they have been very hostile to certain people, and very nice to others. Maybe they view some as being the elect and others the doomed?
Im no ideal vision of a Christian, but I do remember John 3:16.
If you guys didnt know this, maybe you should check some of it out. I Listen to Son Life Radio (Jimmy Swaggert Ministries) on the way home from work every night to a show titled "Frances and Friends". They have been doing some shows about false doctrines latley, but nothing about Calvinism. It has been mentioned, but not to much. here is a link to one show where they talk about it:
You may or may not agree with JSM, but I believe they have some good information, at least about cults/false doctrines
I hope this helps with any of your research you may be conducting on these people.
P.S. Im 99.9999% sure they are calvinists, but this conclusion is based soley upon the discovery of the youtube video and what I have heard.
