Famous Calvinists

Of The Past & Present

 

Introduction

 
In this article we have catalogued the names of many famous Calvinists – Christians who believed and taught the five points of Calvinism, abbreviated as T.U.L.I.P. and also known as “The Doctrines Of Grace”. One important point we wish to make in this article is that all these godly and scholarly Bible teachers believed that what is known today as Calvinism, was and is in fact the true Gospel, the true teachings of the Bible regarding election, predestination and the sovereignty of God in salvation. And their views on these doctrines were the accepted views of what was considered “orthodox” – as compared to “unorthodox” or heretical – teaching regarding salvation. It is only in the past 150 years or so, and most predominently in the past 50 to 100 years, that the opposing view (Arminianism, also known as the “Free-Will” gospel) has spread like wildfire in the churches to the point where Calvinism is now considered heresy by many professing Christian teachers and preachers. It was Arminianism and the free-will gospel that was once called heresy and labeled such at the Synod of Dort back in 1618. Things have greatly changed in the Church in 400 years.

Is True Biblical Salvation Synergistic Or Monergistic?

The true Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ is monergistic. As scripture says in Jonah 2:9 “Salvation is of the Lord”. True salvation does not require the spiritually dead sinner to do anything. God regenerates without the sinner’s cooperation or acceptance or participation of any kind whatsoever. This type of salvation is “one-way” (where only one party – God – is at work) therefore it is referred to as monergistic, with God being the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our faith. This view is in stark contrast to a two-way salvation (God doing His part and man supposedly doing his part), which is a synergistic – and unbiblical though very popular – view. If a person ever truly comes to God, the God of the bible, it is because GOD has already taken out their heart of stone and given them a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26-27).

Featured Gospel Message

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
