NOTHING SO DIVISIVE AMONGST THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS AS THE DOCTRINE OF ELECTION!

NOTHING SO DIVISIVE AMONGST THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS AS THE DOCTRINE OF ELECTION!

This is a fact! And I have proved this by bitter experience for the last thirty two years! – Michael Jeshurun

“We know of nothing so divisive between the sheep and the goats as a faithful exposition of this doctrine of Election. If a servant of God accepts some new charge, and he wishes to ascertain which of his people desire the pure milk of the Word, and which prefer the Devil’s substitutes, let him deliver a series of sermons on this subject (of predestination), and it will quickly be the means of “taking forth the precious from the vile” (Jer. 15:19).

It was thus in the experience of the Divine Preacher: when Christ announced “no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father,” we are told, “from that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him” (John 6:65, 66)!

True it is that by no means all who intellectually receive “Calvinism” as a philosophy or theology, give evidence (in their daily lives) of regeneration; yet equally true is it that those who continue to cavil against and steadfastly refuse any part of the truth, are not entitled to be regarded as Christians.” – A.W. Pink

One thought on “NOTHING SO DIVISIVE AMONGST THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS AS THE DOCTRINE OF ELECTION!

  1. Election is indeed the doctrine that tells the world what is in one’s heart. Christ was the Elect of God; yet man has endowed himself with the ability to side-step God and His Word and to secure “salvation” on his own. I have yet to find one free willer who believes that God created heaven and earth as shown in Genesis and elsewhere. According to Romans 1 such unbelief is the precursor to being “given over” to one’s own beliefs and desire in three stages; the end result is a demented mind “given over” to this world’s evils with the ultimate idol being “self.” The same “self” that came up with the folly of man choosing God, usurping His Authority and placing one’s self as the ultimate sovereign. If a person does not get Election right, he won’t be right on anything else.
