This is a great site. I read it. Everything that Immel says is so true. This is a dangerous cult and like Immel I was steeped in it and God took Me out. I must say, I threw all of MacArthur's tapes and books out. If I am going to document him I can get it on the internet because his lies are all over the place and you can get so much info how he twists the scriptures to puff himself up and tear everybody else down.
We have to remember one thing. These people that promote Calvinsism and even the Armenianism which I don't go along with either have to face Christ when they die in this body. I believe they are all going to plead like the rich man in Luke 16. They will have to live in that doctrine in hell for the rest of their lives because it is not just the doctrine, it is blasphany of the Holy Spirit. Because I believe the Holy Spirit is in us to help us know Christ, not the doctrines of the devil such as Calvinism is.
I would have to differ with you on the difference between the reprehensible
USURPING of the Holy Spirits work in a persons life by these doctrines
verses - committing blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is the unforgivable sin.
Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit has been highly debated.
We must be careful to not to assign everyone to hell in our zeal, since
Calvinism and Arminianism make up
Pretty much 90% of Christendom.
John Macarthur Calvinism maintains that you must prove you are saved by your repentance & good works,
Arminianism says you must keep up good works and repentance to be saved.
Not much differnce there to me, but they need the freedom of simple faith in Christ, for sure.
