CALVINIST OR BAPTIST?  by steve finnell

Is it possible to be a Baptist and reject all five points of John Calvin's T.U.L.I.P? Of course not.

Total Depravity: All men are born totally depraved because the the original sin of Adam and not capable of responding to the gospel.

Unconditional Election: God predestined all who will be be saved and all who will be lost and nothing can change that fact.

Limited Atonement: Christ only died for those on God's predestined list of the saved.

Irresistible Grace: God sends the Holy Spirit to those He wants to save so they will believe and be saved. All the saved have been forced to believe. 

Perseverance of the Saints: Once saved you can never be lost.

To reject one of John Calvin's five points of salvation is to reject them all.

I know of not one Baptists who rejects all of the T.U.L.I.P points. To believe in perseverance of the saints you must embrace all five points of Calvinism.

NOTE: All five points are contrary to Scripture.
