True Hope for Reform Church
Members and All Calvin Doctrine Victims
“Concerning the works of men, by the Words of Your lips, I am
kept from the paths of the destroyer. My steps have been held in Your
paths, so that my footsteps have not slipped” (Psalms 17:4-5
Kaat of Michigan paid us a visit on the Sabbath, September
26/27, 2008. We talked the whole day, and there was one thing he
told me that
pulled at my heart and prompted this paper. He said, “Victor,
there are many Dutch Reform people [or Calvinist people] who are very
frustrated and angry with God. Many suffer depression; some have had
and have even been driven to suicide. Because they don’t have
the peace of salvation, they assume or suspect they are damned and
ask why God would predetermine them to eternal damnation while predetermining
others for Heaven. They wonder about the justice of it all. This is
the torment in which they live, and they have no answer for it.”
All men are predestinated
I felt badly for those people. I thought that the
Catholic doctrine of never-ending torment in hell was bad enough, and
it is, but this
is worse. At least with the former, there is presumably hope of a change,
but with Calvin’s doctrine of predestination to eternal damnation,
there is absolutely no hope, ever. God has made up His mind and that’s
it. He made many to burn, no matter what they do, and what’s
more, He keeps them guessing much of their earthly lives. Talk about
being damned to Hell!
But I have an answer for any that would hear the truth, which will
deliver them of their torment. As Jesus said:
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
free” (John 8:32 MKJV).
And: “Therefore if the Son shall make you free, you shall be
free indeed” (John 8:36 MKJV).
“Whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting
life” (John 3:15 MKJV).
The apostle Paul, sent by God to preach the gospel to the
made this promise by the Spirit of Him Who does not lie: “For
whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall
be saved” (Romans
It is also written: “The Lord is not slow concerning His promise,
as some count slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, not purposing
that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2
Peter 3:9 MKJV).
That is God’s will. Do not allow any self-righteous
and ignorant man, with however many credentials of men, to tell you
that the words “all” and “whosoever” refer
only to those predestined. Know this: All men are predestined to salvation.
it is true that God never intended to save all men in this period
of history in this world. His purpose for now was to take out the
firstfruits and only those:
“Of His own will He brought us forth with the Word of truth,
for us to be a certain firstfruit of His creatures” (James 1:18
“These are those who were not defiled with women; for they are
virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These
were redeemed from among men, as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb” (Revelation
Now not all can be the firstfruits, but don’t you suppose that
if those saved are known as but the firstfruits only, there is the
suggestion, indeed the promise, that the remainder of the harvest will
be brought in at the appointed time?
I agree with the interpretation that “whosoever will” refers
to only those given of God the grace and will to believe. As Paul says: “For
it is God Who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure
(Philippians 2:13 MKJV). However, there is nothing in Scripture that
says only certain ones will ever believe (be sure to read our links
below, which will explain everything clearly and Scripturally).
problem is that the tormented people in the NRC believe men and
their lies rather than God and His Truth. They believe what men say
the Bible says rather than what the Bible says. They give the glory
due to God to a man, John Calvin, contrary to the admonition of God’s
“But I say this, that every one of you says, I am of Paul, and
I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. Is Christ divided?
Was Paul crucified for you, or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” (1
Corinthians 1:12-13 MKJV)
Even such a man of God as Paul, to whom God gave so much revelation
and honor as to write a goodly portion of the Bible, was not to be
the focus of a believer in Christ. How much less a man like Calvin,
who was not a man of God?
Calvin had no revelation
Yes, he was an intelligent and educated man, a leader of men, speaking
in terms of the world. But does this make one a man of God? No. Did
Calvin have the Spirit of Christ? No. Was he a true believer? No; John
Calvin was not a Biblically-defined Christian. He was a man-made Christian,
unregenerate and fully dependent upon his own faculties of understanding.
His understanding was founded in carnal reasoning. The Bible teaches,
however, that the carnal mind is at enmity with God:
“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for
it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be. So then
they who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:6-8 MKJV).
had no revelation from God. Does that shock you? Read on for
your sake, or remain in Hell for believing lies; it is your choice.
I am thankful to announce good news to those who can receive it, because
I have the truth and the answer for all NRC victims and Calvinists
who believe his diabolical doctrine.
How John Calvin Came to His Doctrine
God has revealed to me how John Calvin formulated in his mind the
doctrine that God has predestinated certain few to eternal bliss with
Him, while He has predestinated the vast majority to eternity in horrible
torment, which doctrine is a concoction of devils. The devil’s
purpose is to keep people in their darkness and bondage (hell) and
to torment them. They do not have to wait for a hell beyond this life – they
live it here and now. Who can deny it? Hell is the spiritual fire of
those who do not know God, but must they remain there forever? Not
at all – guaranteed by God and the Scriptures! Believe the Truth!
He judged after
the outward appearance.
Here is how John Calvin came to embrace and teach the doctrine of
predestination, some for Heaven but many more for eternal damnation:
In studying the Scriptures, Calvin saw the truth of the reconciliation
of all things, for that truth runs throughout the Bible; it is everywhere
from Genesis to Revelation (see The
Restitution of All Things section
at our site). Nevertheless, John had a problem. He could not reconcile
the Scriptures with experience. Not having the Spirit of God to reveal
the whole truth to him (I John 2:20,27), he chose to trust his experience
instead of the Word of God. He judged after the outward appearance,
and could not believe the truth that God would eventually save every
After all, he saw wicked men of every sort, men who did not profess
faith in Jesus Christ, men who were atheists and reprobate in every
way, dying. “How,” he asked himself, “could it be
that God is saving all men? I see them dying in sin; therefore it cannot
be that the Bible teaches that all men will be saved.”
was another faulty doctrine that formed a tangled web from which
John could not extricate himself: He believed that men can
only be saved in the one life they live on earth. The following verse is the
most quoted to defend the doctrine that all men must be saved in this
life, or be forever doomed:
“And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the
judgment…” (Hebrews 9:27 MKJV).
It says nothing of men having
only this life to have saving faith in Christ.
But this verse does not say what people think or are taught it says.
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many. And to
those who look for Him He shall appear the second time without sin
to salvation” (Hebrews 9:28 MKJV).
You see, it speaks of Jesus Christ and of His dying once, as it is
appointed for all men. It says nothing of men having only this life
to have saving faith in Christ, nothing at all.
Yes, it mentions judgment, but here is a Biblical definition of the
“Didn't You exist before time began, O LORD, my God, my Holy
One? We will not die! O LORD, You have appointed the Babylonians to
bring judgment. O Rock, You have destined them to
correct us” (Habakkuk
judgment is not of condemnation, but of correction. That
is why Christ came and laid down His life. He did not come as did Muhammad,
killing. He rebuked His disciples, James and John, the “sons
of thunder,” for thinking destruction:
“And He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered
into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. And they did
not receive Him, because His face was going toward Jerusalem. And seeing,
His disciples James and John said, Lord, do You desire that we command
fire to come down from Heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did?
But He turned and rebuked them and said, You do not know of what spirit
you are. For the Son of Man has not come to destroy men's lives, but
to save. And they went to another village” (Luke 9:52-56 MKJV).
The reason for Christ's coming
is to restore all things to wholeness.
And these were Samaritans, a people despised and rejected by the Jews.
If the Lord was showing mercy to them, as He did the Samaritan woman
at the well, why would He reject anyone forever and earmark one for
eternal torment? Did He not send His apostles to preach forgiveness
to those who were not His people, the Gentiles? Have not all sinned
and come short of the glory of God? But there is a timing for everything:
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died
for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6 KJV).
“For God has shut up all in unbelief, so that He might show
mercy to all” (Romans 11:32 MKJV).
yourself this: Why would the Lord, with the knowledge of God,
forgive His killers from the cross? If they, proving themselves to
be the sons of Satan that He called them, were predestined by God to
never know Him or be delivered from hell, what is the point? Why would
Jesus bother? What kind of forgiveness would that be, if not entirely
empty and hypocritical? But being God and Love incarnate, Who never
fails or faints, He did not write them off, as the doctrine of predestination
to eternal hell claims. Listen to what He said:
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning
those who are sent to her, how often would I have gathered your children
together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you
would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I say to
you, You shall not see Me from now on until you say, ‘Blessed
is he who comes in the Name of the Lord’” (Matthew 23:37-39
Men blaspheme His Name, Who
The time comes when those who have persecuted and rejected Christ
will be turned back to Him. The apostle Paul confirms this:
“For I do not desire you to be ignorant, brothers, of this mystery,
lest you be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened
to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And
so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer shall
come out of Zion, and He shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob’” (Romans
It is simply not true that all men are called to repentance in this
life only. Men have formulated a most unjust, defamatory character
sketch of the Just and Merciful One. They blaspheme His Name, Who is
of you would choose to have children and predetermine the
majority of them to horrible, eternal torment? Or would you condemn
to eternal torment after seeing their lives, though they were not particularly
lawless or disobedient? Do you call that “love” or “justice”?
Even a wicked and unregenerate world does not do that unless mad. You,
being evil, would not do such a thing! I know you would not do so,
unless you were perfectly insane - or perhaps the brainsoiled victim
of a tyrant like Calvin, who repeatedly proved his vindictive, murderous
spirit, on record.
How can God care less for
men than men do for a cat or dog?
Is not mercy for the sinner, who needs it, and not for the righteous,
who does not?
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your
children, how much more shall your Father in Heaven give good things
to those who ask Him?” (Matthew 7:11 MKJV)
If nature is qualified and appointed by God to teach you that it is
wrong for a man to have long hair (1 Corinthians 11:14), then permit
nature to teach you that your Creator would not do as you have been
taught. Observe how fallen man cares for his own. Consider how animals
nurture and protect their young. Look at how men will gather to rescue
a dog from drowning or a cat from a tree. How can you conclude that
God, Who is merciful and full of compassion, cares less for men, whom
He created in His own image and for whom He laid down his life, than
men do for a cat or dog? If He condemned the heathen, who are without
the Law, for passing their sons through the fire, why would He, the
Author and Essence of the Law, do it Himself to those He created in
No, Calvin has taught you lies, and you have been subject to his evil
doctrine, so you have not been free by believing the truth instead.
I tell you the truth.
Plainly seeing that not all are saved in this life, and erroneously
thinking that they must be if they are to be saved at all, Calvin settled
on a solution to his quandary. He decided that the Scriptures that
teach the reconciliation of all things must pertain only to those certain
few chosen for salvation, that all of them, the
few chosen, will be
God has predestinated nobody
for eternal torment.
But what of the remainder of mankind? Logic would demand that if certain
were predestined for salvation, the rest must be predestined to hell.
What other rationally consistent conclusion could there be? Well, logic
is fine and good, but if the components making the equation are not
legitimate, then the logic will only serve to deceive, steal, kill,
is not like that at all, and it can be proven by God’s
Word. The Bible, in Its original tongues, does not even suggest such
a thing, as Calvin has blasphemously dictated It does, and as faulty
Biblical translation by indoctrinated translators may indicate. The
efficacy of Christ’s shed blood is infinitely greater than the
wicked and unregenerate teacher allows. God has predestined nobody
for eternal torment. Here is His purpose, even as He declared it:
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill and to
destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly. I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd
lays down His life for the sheep” (John 10:10-11 MKJV).
Calvin had more than a small
fraction of error. He is a destroyer to this day.
you have many questions and objections. I know you believe,
as you have been taught, that Calvin was a great man of God. You may
be thinking, “Who in his right mind can question him, a father
of the reformation and a great theologian?” As I said, John was
quite intelligent in the world’s terms. He studied much, and
he could understand and formulate doctrine from the Scriptures, as
few others. But he did so by leaning on his own understanding. Unless
a man has faith from God and receives revelation from Him, he ends
up with foolish and destructive conclusions. That perfectly describes
Calvin, who ended up a destroyer, scattering rather than gathering.
We all know that a good meal can only be a good meal if all the food
is good. If only a small fraction of it is poison, one who eats that
meal may die. Calvin had more than a small fraction of error. He is
a destroyer to this day. He has slain many with his doctrines. As he
slew Servetus and Castellion in his day, so he has continued to destroy
lives today, keeping all those who are taught to revere him and his
theology in a terrible, tormenting darkness - all but the self-righteous
that is, who trust in their virtue to trust in grace, a subtle and
deceptive form of self-righteousness:
“They are enclosed in their own fat; with their mouth they speak
proudly” (Psalms 17:10 MKJV).
Will your teachers tell you to avoid me as a false teacher and heretic,
saying I lead souls astray because I condemn Calvin’s doctrine
and theirs? Will your teachers tell you not to listen to me lest I
should cause you to perish? Isn’t that ironic? How can those
whom God has ordained for eternal perishment be led astray? What, then,
do you stand to lose by hearing me out and considering all that I say?
All those with the mind of
Christ will denounce Calvin's words and ways.
If you believe or even suspect you are damned already, and are even
now condemned to living with such a terrible uncertainty (or surety),
why not gain peace of mind by knowing the Truth? Will you believe me,
or will you believe Calvin? Which of us speaks the truth? Will you
allow your spiritual leaders to continue supporting Calvin’s
lies, or will you believe God Who sends me to speak the truth for your
sakes? God will give grace to hear and believe, as He wills.
Yes, Calvin was an unrepentant murderer, and it is on record; this
is not mere opinion. We will prove it to you. I solemnly tell you that
all those in their right minds, with the mind of Christ that is, will
denounce Calvin’s words and ways, and flee his murderous influence.
I know you believe the Bible says few will be saved, many are doomed
to the lake of fire forever and ever, and all men who will be saved
must come to repentance in Christ in this life. These are lies mixed
in with the truth, as a meal with both good food and poison, more than
enough to destroy.
need not despair for those loved ones you have lost who did not
live righteously according to the NRC or Calvin’s definitions
and interpretations of Scripture. There is an explanation from God:
“For as in Adam all die, even so in
Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own
order: Christ the first-fruit, and afterward
they who are Christ's at His coming; then is the end, when He delivers
the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when He makes to cease all rule
and all authority and power. For it is right for Him to reign until
He has put all the enemies under His feet. The last enemy made to cease
is death” (1 Corinthians 15:22-26 MKJV).
“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes,
Who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and will
make manifest the counsels of the hearts. And then shall each
one have praise of God” (1 Corinthians 4:5 MKJV).
If you recognize your sinfulness,
do not blame God, but seek His mercy.
Perhaps the greatest of Calvin’s lies is that of the predestination
of men to eternal hellfire. How wicked a charge against Jesus Christ!
How vile is this character assassination of the One Who died for us,
Who perfectly exhibited the very opposite of what this man and his
lackeys teach! This is nothing but the fruit of an evil, self-righteous,
vindictive, diabolical monster, and his fruits have abundantly proven
my description of him, well beyond the shadow of doubt for those who
have any understanding at all.
Calvin is a perfect representation of the self-righteous Pharisee
the Lord described:
“And He spoke this parable to certain ones who trusted in themselves,
that they were righteous, and despised others” (Luke 18:9 MKJV).
Do not continue on the path of those who trust in themselves, and
if, as the publican, you recognize your sinfulness, do not blame God
for it, but seek His mercy as did the publican, whom Jesus said was
counted innocent with God. Shall God slay or torment those whom He
declares innocent? Know the truth of His Word:
“The one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” (John
“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will make
all men come to Me” (John 12:32 BBE).
Again, I say to you, do not allow any self-righteous and ignorant
man with however many credentials of men to tell you that the “all” or “whosoever
only to those select few predestined - or that only those predestined
come to Him. For a time it appears that way, for only those He has
called and chosen can come, but know this: If your time does not come
in this life, it will come in the next, however many lives or dimensions
you must inhabit or navigate.
Whether included in the elect for now or not, you must know that
each of you will receive in the next life what you have sown here,
so whoever you are and whatever you do, be certain that you will reap
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows,
that he also will reap” (Galatians 6:7 MKJV).
This is not a threat, except to those who set their hearts on doing
evil. Otherwise, the Scripture says:
“Who will harm you if you are devoted to doing what is good?” (1
Peter 3:13 GW)
When your change comes, as with Job, you will know
it. You will see and know God. There will be no guessing. God will
not hold you in suspense as His child. One definitely knows when he
or she is saved. See 1 John 5:13, 1 Thessalonians 1:4-6, and 1 Corinthians
