Calvinist: Arminianism is a Damnable Heresy

“Since the teachings of Arminianism are contrary to Scripture, they are manifestly false. They are serious perversions of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is only one gospel, not two. Anyone who preaches any other gospel is preaching a false gospel and is accursed. “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed” (Gal. 1:8-9)… 

Is Arminianism a damnable heresy? Yes. The false doctrines of conditional election, universal atonement, partial depravity, resistible grace, and the possibility of a lapse from grace originate in the pit of hell with the father of lies (John 8:44). They are contrary to Scripture and worthy of condemnation. This is a serious matter. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction” (2 Pet. 2:1)… Those who hold to these false doctrines consistently must believe that their salvation depends, in part, on their own merit, and persons who are depending on their own merit instead of the merit of Christ are on their way to perdition.”

    I completely agree with the OPC. However, and fortunately most Arminians are not consistent in their soteriology.

    BBG – a genuine question; what are unfortunate implications of a consistent Arminian soteriology?

    Thus saith the Lord to the murderer Cain, “If you do well, you can hold your head up, but if not, sin is a demon lurking; his urge is toward you, but you can be his master.” Total depravity and unconditional election are damnable heresies and stand refuted in Genesis 4. The whole of Calvinism cannot even get to the Great Flood before it brazenly contradicts Scripture.
