Calvinism Refuted by the Bible

Just to first give some background on Calvinism for those who may not be aware of it, one of its key beliefs is that God unconditionally elects some people for Heaven and the rest of the people God either actively predestines for Hell (as the Calvinistic doctrine of "double predestination" teaches), or some Calvinists believe that God simply passes over the non-elect and thus they still end up in Hell, either actively or passively on God's part. So basically, Calvinists believe that God unconditionally elects some people to salvation while all the non-elect go to Hell. But is this what the Bible teaches?

Earlier this year I jotted down a short three-point sermon which I titled "Calvinism Refuted by the Bible". Look up these verses in your Bible; Calvinists may be surprised to find these verses in their Bibles too! 

So here it is, my short three point sermon titled "Calvinism Refuted by the Bible":
  1. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked but wants all to be saved. (Ezekiel 18:23, 33:11; 2 Peter 3:9)  
  2. God does not show personal favoritism or partiality. (Acts 10:34; James 2:9) 
  3. God prepared Hell for the devil and his angels, not for unsaved people. (Matthew 25:41; Romans 2:4-5)

Good article! i have a request(this is the same person as the "annonymous" that commented on your I Never Knew You post)
can you do a post on Moral Government Theology? it's basicly a system of teaching that stems from the writings of Charles G. Finney, and i know it's unbiblical. can you do a post explaining why it's wrong? i agree with their rejection of Calvinism, but they deny God is omnipotent or even onnicient, claiming He "just makes really good guesses". worst of all, they completely alter the Gospel! they say Christ's death was a "moral influence" for us to "repent"(as in turn from sin) rather than a substitutionary sacrifice! please, for the Grace of God, expose this error so those who come to this site may see how terrible this error is. God bless!
