    Is Calvinism biblical?

    Do you think that the 5 points of Calvinism can be systematically and flawlessly interpreted by scripture?

    My opinion (as a former Bible teacher and researcher) is that *some* parts of Reformed Theology (Calvinism) are Biblical. You see, the Bible is an extremely diverse book with regards to it's teachings. Many believers vehemently affirm it's homogeneity, but deeper analysis along with a healthy dose of historical criticism proves that the New Testament in particular teaches different shades of some doctrines, and some contradicting ones.

    Some passages seem to support Calvinism, while others follow a more Arminian strain. This is a centuries-long debate that probably will never be resolved because the Bible supports so many different teachings, resulting from having different authors and having been compiled over hundreds of years.

    The bottom line is that a believer will see what they want to see in the Bible. The staunch Calvinist will give you verse after verse that he thinks supports his beliefs, as will the Arminian, Catholic, Baptist, etc...

      and they will all be false doctrines  of men,  ONLY the Holy Spirit will show you the truth.   All denominations are an abomination, because they are all founded on the false doctrines of men and not the  being of one spirit as scripture requires.

      Nice! I like your answer. It's something I've been researching and trying to figure out. I used to lean Calvinist, but now I think both ways have flaws. I like my Pastor's term of being a biblicist.
