Calvinism - A Critique by Dr. B. Myron Cedarholm

"My dear young people, the bell has rung and it's time to quit, but I trust there will not be a one of you that will ever be a Calvinist and hold to the five points of John Calvin. I can stand here I suppose for many hours and tell you why it is so dangerous, but I do believe it denies the Bible, it denies your zeal for winning souls, and destroys your desire to pray for souls, and destroys missions...and we do believe that Calvinism destroys new churches...Calvinism ruins the desire to see people saved, start new churches...it destroys sacrificial giving, it destroys the challenge of young people to go into the Lord's work...and so as a result we find it destroys preachers, it destroys evangelism, it destroys churches, it destroys missions, it helps to destroy everything that is in God's precious Word. So I trust by the grace of God that you'll stay away from Calvinism, and you'll be one who believes that every man can be saved when they hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and you'll persevere by prayer, and work, and witnessing until they come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ." - Dr. B. Myron Cedarholm 1
