Death, Life and Calvinism

Eusebio Tanicala, Ph. D.

IF DEATH IS AUTOMATICALLY PASSED ON TO OFF SPRINGS THEN LIFE SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY PASS ON TO OFF SPRINGS

Calvinism says that Adam and Eve’s disobedience brought death to their off springs automatically. The line of reasoning is that dead men could produce only dead off springs. The dead passes on to their off springs their deadness.

But John Calvin did not apply his line of logic on the offsprings of Abraham and Sarah who were people of faith. See Heb. 11:8-19; Romans 4:1-12; James 2:21-24. Abraham and Sarah were justified by their faith and obedience; they were friends of God, they had life in them. They were alive. The alive should pass on to their off spring their aliveness. If not, why not?

Today, Calvinists also talk about being “born again” as taught in John 3:3-5.And Calvinists have in their midst couples who are born again, made holy by Christ’s blood when they obey. These couples (husband and wife) beget children. Do Calvinists say that born again, holy couples automatically pass on to their off springs their “born againness)? Why can’t they pass on to their children their aliveness? If not. why not?

So you feel the faulty logic of John Calvin. Yes, he was not logical because he didn’t stick to what the Bible says. #
