“While Calvinism/Arminianism is not a gospel issue…” (A Pilgrim’s Progress: Exceedingly Bored With the Whole Calvinism and Arminianism Debate)

No, it really is when you get right down to it.  Calvinism is outright Satanism because aside from the position on predestination (which is a sort of sideshow), Calvinism amounts to the Gnostic heresy that Jesus condemns in Revelation 2:24, that of contemplating “the depths of Satan” or in other words claiming that salvation is dependant on sitting around contemplating your “total depravity.”  That ultimately is what Calvinism is, and all it is.  It is a denial of what Paul says in Romans 6:18,  “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”   The gospel is about how Christ’s atoning death has enabled us to MOVE ON from sin and become the servants of righteousness, but what Calvinists want to do is brainwash the whole church that the gospel is nothing more than wallowing in sin and contemplating your sinfulness.  Calvinism is Satan’s counterfeit “gospel.”
