Tonight at our Canons of Dort class, we will continue our studies on the “Third and Fourth Heads of Doctrine: The Corruption of Man, his Conversion to God and the Manner in Which it Occurs.” We will focus on:
Article 8: The Ernest Call of the Gospel
Article 9: Why Some of the Called Do Not Come
Once more, we will examine and compare the views/positions of the Arminians, Hyper-Calvinists and Reformed-Calvinists. As always, by God’s grace alone, our goal is Biblical faithfulness which leads to fruitful ministry and mission.
“Scripture… clearly teaches that the call of the gospel is serious and that God seriously wants men to heed the call and repent. At the same time, Scripture teaches that God reprobates some people.” – Arthur van Delden
“The problem lies with man, with us. Our own-self-inflicted deadness-in-sin is the cause for some not responding to the gospel…” – Clarence Bouwman
