Calvinism: None Dare Call It Heresy


By Bob Kirkland, D.D.


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.

Product 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?

Bondage Breaker

I got the book “None Dare Call It Heresy” in Kindle (until hard copy arrives) form and a hard copy. I just had to start reading it ASAP and looking forward to the hard copy to write, highlight and make notes on it (which has happened). Having been in a staunch Reformed, 5-point Calvinist church for over 10 years and never being able to embrace it (tho I kept that to myself) and feeling guilty that something was wrong with me was very damaging. The joy of His salvation left me little by little with the paralyzing fear of not being a chosen one. My husband was Reformed until a few years ago. We left 20 yrs ago not for it being Reformed but other unconscionable things that the pastors thought were biblical actions. Because we did not submit to their authority, they excommunicated us. They put us thru hell. None of our friends were allowed to have anything to do with us. My paralyzing fear of God throwing me away led me to develop severe anxiety and panic attacks that interrupted my daily function. Our three kids were very little at the time, and it was so difficult for me. By God’s grace I did not walk away from my faith but just clung with every fiber of my being to the sliver of hope that God’s grace and gift of eternal life with Him was available to ALL who chose to trust and believe in Him. At times it was almost impossible to believe it was that simple!

I often told my husband that I believed it was another gospel which put strain on our marriage as at the time he still fully embraced it. I’m sharing only a very small snippet of our experience but I can tell you that many of our close friends walked away from the faith wounded, broken and betrayed by that church and their legalism. That church fell apart a few years back but the damage Calvinism/Reformed Theology had on many is tragic. Speaking for myself I think of it as “Calvinist Theology PTSD!” Just Sunday on our way to church a pastor on the radio said something that triggered that fear again, and it makes me mad and sad. For some of us, it changed us deep in our spirit in a damaging way and what once was a beautiful and sweet joy of Christ’s Salvation turned into a lifelong limp.

All this to say I’ve longed for a book like this to help me truly understand, embrace God’s immeasurable love for me and validate my thoughts on this grace killer! This book is a must read for untangling your theology and get back on the correct one!

A Concise Critque

Thank you so much for publishing Calvinism None Dare Call It Heresy. I pre-ordered a copy from Amazon and read it as soon as I received it. I was taught/indoctrinated by a Calvinist pastor several years ago and by the grace of God, came to my senses after carefully reading the Bible. I have been a Dave Hunt reader for about 25 years now and read his book What Love Is This? as soon as it came out and gleaned much valuable information from it to share with people struggling with this issue. I have wanted a more concise critique that I could share with other folks being taken in by the slick packaging and marketing of Calvinism. Most wouldn't take the time to read a work as extensive as Dave's but your book packs the essentials all into a package that fits the bill perfectly and is priced so that I can afford to pass it on to others. I don't know anyone who simply read the Bible and came away with a Calvinistic understanding. Every Calvinist I know was taught it by another Calvinist. Thank you for ignoring all the critics and proceeding with the publication of this book. It will be a valuable resource in defending the truth of God's word as well as His character.

With appreciation.

Good Read - but also a primer

Written as a primer on Calvinism, it is aimed at the person who wants to know more about Calvinism but not get into deep theology. With that understanding I highly recommend it. . . . Good documentation and clear understanding of 5 point Calvinism. . . . It is a small book (5x8 inches). . . . It is an easy hour or two read. Also included are 3 essays, each about 5-7 pages. One is by Harry Ironside which is a nice addition.

The tenets of Calvinism are clearly explained. Scriptures they use to support their systematic are cited and rebutted. The author clearly shows how they are taken out of context. He uses ample scriptures to refute the tenets. He also names leading Calvinists and uses many quotes from them to establish their beliefs. . . . The author also uses logic to fully discount the tenets of Calvinism.

While the topics he covers are all good and in total do explain the heretical stance of Calvinism, I wanted a more organized approach such as walking through T.U.L.I.P. This is just my preference but is the way I would approach this.

*Good read on a timely subject.!
*Author is a solid pastor.
*Clearly shows how Calvinism (Reformed Theology) fails the standards of the Word of God.
*Excellent references, plus lists Dave Hunt's book "What Love is This?" as an in-depth next read.
*Gives all Scripture references, making it easy to see what the Bible says about Calvinism.
*Eye appealing cover: good for coffee tables, etc...
"It is refreshing to see a man of God write on a subject where he will be going against the flow of church thinking, but with the flow of God's Word. I recommend this book."

I knew some about the dangers of Calvinism. This book had helpful scriptures to show we have free will and the power to choose.
