Calvinism and the Gospel of Christ

Calvinism and the BibleThe free articles below compare the five major points of Calvinism to the teaching of the Bible.

Various teachings of John Calvin are taught by many modern denominations. How does Calvinist doctrine compare to the Bible? Do we inherit total depravity from Adam (original sin)? Are election and predestination unconditional, or are we free moral agents? Was the atonement of Jesus' death limited only to those who are unconditionally predestined, or is salvation freely offered to all? 

Is God's grace irresistible for the elect? Can a child of God so sin as to be lost, or are we once saved, always saved (eternal security of the believer and perseverance of the saints)? Are we saved just by believing (faith only), or must be meet conditions including obedience and baptism? 

Much of this material is also available for sale as part of our professionally printed book entitled Grace, Faith, and Obedience. For more information go to
