What is YOUR verdict?




Here is my verdict:

I am a judge-- I am commanded to judge all things:

Ezekiel 44:23 (KJV) And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws
(the Word of God) and my statutes (Apostolic teachings) in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

Romans 16:17 (KJV) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Murder is not, in any manor of fashion, suggested by the Apostolic teachings in the New Testament as a form of church discipline. Murder, according to Revelation 22, is a damning offense if not repented of. Only a total degrading of the call for repentance can make room for Calvin in modern theology.

John 7:24 (KJV) Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

John Calvin has done me no harm.

My statement and verdict here has absolutely nothing to do with my being offended. I am speaking judgment and marking a man based upon the massive evidences, which are overwhelming.


1. The act of worshipful hate:

Psalms 139:19 (KJV) Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

I have presented at this journal all the information and resources for you to understand this-- John Calvin was a murderer and a projection of the Augustinian view that heretics needed some physical punishment for their own good. In this, Calvin was WORSE than his godfather, Augustine.

I have also proven from the Scriptures that teach that all unrepentant murderers will go to hell. Calvin is now in hell, screaming for water, for he set out to murder Servetus while claiming elsewhere that the act was evil, and he did NOT repent. He justified himself and threatened to murder anyone who disagreed with him.

So, I agree with God. In agreement with my God, I HATE CALVIN.

2. To the degree that you (or anyone else) gives place to Calvin's teachings in your theology, or daily application of that theology in your life and teachings, that is the degree in which you are a deadly enemy of mine. I would do well to avoid you at all costs.

1 Corinthians 15:33 (KJV) Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

Romans 1:28 (KJV) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them

It is not possible to believe every word of the above text in Romans 1 is inspired of God while overlooking murder in an alleged servant of God. I am convinced that Reformed people, by and large, take pleasure in Calvin's brutal nature. I have seen it myself in Reformed fellowships as they brutalized some of the own members who were weak in some way, or just too plain and poor for their materialistic standards.

The apple does not fall far from the tree.

To be entirely right with God, I believe that the Anabaptist practice of taking a vow regarding the Reformed Movement is in order. This vow must be to leave and avoid the company of Reformed heretics in order to find fellowship in the Lord's true Church.

James 1:8 (KJV) A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

I believe that all Calvinists are unstable in all of their doctrine. This is why they flee to deep thinking commentaries, creeds, and confessions. They, whether consciously or unconsciously, hate the final authority of the plain Word of God. They give it lip service, but only use those texts which support their warped presuppositions.

This, by the way, is the mark of all cults. Calvinists are cultists. By John Calvin's standard, they should call a great conference and burn one another at the stake. This is not my notion-- it is Calvin's.

Modern Calvinists cannot be too thankful that they are not held accountable to their mentor's edits.

3. To the reader who is a Calvinist and is now ready to cleanse his ways:

Psalms 119:9 (KJV) BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

You must make public confession to having followed an heretic. You must cleanse your ways and resort only to the Word of God for ALL ISSUES OF FAITH AND PRACTICE.

You must burn all your writings of John Calvin. The Africans I grew up with in Tanzania and Kenya were required to burn their fetishes before being baptized and invited into local church fellowship. Calvin has been your fetish, a fetish of the mind and ego. You must cleanse your ways, or God will not believe you.

What is YOUR verdict?

If you say,

"The evidence is conflicting, and it is so long ago, and I separate the actions of Calvin from his writings, blah, blah, blah.............."

And, if God has not chastened you for your cover up of the murder in Geneva,


Hebrews 12:8 (KJV) But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

You may well be damned to hell for defending murder. Why, dear reader, will you not think for yourself before God and his Word plus nothing?

Psalms 4:3 (KJV) But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

Please offer God the sweet smelling sacrifice of the smoke of Calvin's Institutes burning in your back yard.

Throw in your creed and man-made confession along with it, and make the angels sing.

Add a commentary like John Gill, and make the universe dance down the streets of heaven. They will be singing:

There is a man of God today,
Lighting a fire to burn away;
All of the notions of scholarship,
Now Christ alone has his fellowship.

Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Who died on Mount Calvary;
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.
