Lighthouse Trails Announces New Release: Calvinism—None Dare Call It Heresy

Lighthouse Trails Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Calvinism: None Dare Call It Heresy written by Canadian pastor Bob Kirkland.

Description: Today, a growing number of churches, ministries, and Christian colleges are promoting Calvinism. While Calvinist scholars claim that Calvinism is complex (and they have indeed created a complex system), the rudiments of it are very basic, and it can be readily understood.

To call something heresy is clearly a strong accusation and should never be done flippantly. For something to be heresy, it must deviate from the fundamental teachings of the Bible. And nothing can be more serious than a deviation from the Gospel itself. Calvinism does present “another gospel.”

John Calvin taught that God will be glorified by bringing billions of people into this world for no other purpose than having them burn in Hell for eternity. This alone depicts a view of God found nowhere in Scripture; in essence, this misrepresents God but also creates a platform upon which “another gospel” has been built that is both fatalistic and makes the sacrifice of Christ no longer freely available to “whosoever may come.” Salvation is no longer a matter of choice. Furthermore, the Calvinist can never actually know if he or she is one of “the elect” thereby placing the Calvinist “Gospel” on a foundation of doubt rather than true biblical belief in the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ at Calvary. If that is not heresy, then what is?

Bob Kirkland, D.D.Author: Bob Kirkland, D.D. is a Baptist pastor from Ontario, Canada. In 1955, at the age of twelve, he received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Bob explains, “The Bible says, ‘If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’ (2 Corinthians 5:17). For me, everything became new, especially a new burning desire to study the Word of God. At the writing of this book, I am seventy-five years old and still have that burning desire to study His Word.”
