Description: There is a very wicked individual who many people are promoting today. They talk about all his perversion and evil as if it is good. This individual needs to be called out and rebuked for the devil that he is.
Brother Hicks Speaking: Hello brothers and sisters, today I want to call out a wicked individual. I am going to read a verse of Scripture that fits perfectly with this individual.
2 Peter 2:14, “Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children.”
This individual is so wicked that any vile thought you could think of they have thought of it: murder, rape, lust, pornography, adultery, fornication, everything [evil], they have thought of it before. This is an utterly wicked individual. He is utterly vile, and Christians would want nothing to do with him. And yet, some professing Christians try to have fellowship with this wicked individual. We need to have no fellowship with such wickedness (2 Corinthians 6:14), such evil people (Ephesians 5:11), they need to be avoided at all costs. This particular individual I am talking about is the god of Calvinism.
The god of Calvinism has decreed ALL evil acts. He thought them up in his head in all eternity past and he decreed men do them. Not only did he command that they do them, he instigates and makes them do these acts. He is the author of all sin, he is the author of all evil. He is truly a wicked individual, an idol god, a false god that has nothing to do with the god of the Bible.
Let me give you some quotes from the leading proponent of Calvinism, John Calvin, because you will find when you deal with Calvinists that they have no problem lying completely. You can represent Calvinism perfectly and they will lie and say, “Well, you are misrepresenting what we believe.” I have even read quotes from Calvin before, not telling them it is John Calvin, and they [still] say, “We don’t believe that!” I say, “It is a quote from John Calvin’s Institutes.” [They reply], “Well… yeah… but… you are just not understanding him.” They have no problem lying. It is like any other cult, they will lie and if they can just get you in the door [of their false beliefs], [just] a little bit seeking their “secret wisdom,” you will get deceived and will be dragged in by those unclean spirits that teach them these lies, and you will become one of the deceived.
Calvinism teaches that men are not doing their own will, they are not doing their own thoughts, but “god” puts the thoughts, the desires, the will, and the actions into their hearts. They only do what they do because “god” makes them by the decree, and, yes, he even instigates and moves their hands and makes them do it.
Calvin says this, “… [Men] cannot conceive, plan or carry out any crime, unless God allows it, indeed commands it. They are not only in bondage to him, but are forced to serve him.” (John Calvin, Institutes, Bk. 1, Ch. 17, Sect. 10)
My friends, this is not the God of the Bible. This is the god of Calvinism, a false god.
Calvin said this, “That men do nothing save at the secret instigation of God, and do not discuss and deliberate on any thing but what he has previously decreed with himself and brings to pass by his secret direction….” (John Calvin, Institutes, Bk. 1, Ch. 18, Sect. 1)
This is very plain, and I have done a number of teachings on this before, this is the god of the Calvinist, this is the god of Calvinism. People in the cult of Calvin follow this god, and [they believe] everything that happens is their god’s will. The God of the Bible says that He will all men to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4-6; Hebrews 2:9; John 3:16; 6:51; Titus 2:11-14; 1 John 2:2; Matthew 20:28; 2 Corinthians 5:14; 2 Peter 3:9; etc.), but the god of Calvinism only will whoever actually gets saved. Whoever is damned is who god will them to be damned. This is not the God of the Bible. The god of Calvinism is evil. Any man that had the same characteristics as the god of Calvinism you would say is a wicked, utterly depraved, reprobate, because the worst sinner has better thoughts and cleaner thoughts than the god of Calvinism. Because the god of Calvinism put those wicked thoughts in the worst of sinners. They [those evil thoughts] are the product of his heart, his filthy, disgusting, evil heart. Their god is worse than the devil. The quote is, that many people like to say, that “Your god (talking about Calvinism) is my devil,” but their god is worse than the devil, because their god could have done anything, but he chose to create evil. He chose to make all this evil and he gets pleasure from it! [How] utterly disgusting, my friends!
If you are following Calvin, if you are following Calvinism and Gnosticism, paganism, and Augustinianism, you need to repent and follow Jesus Christ. Do not be deceived! You are not following Jesus Christ if you are in this false religion [of Calvinism]. You are following an idol god, a false god, a false Jesus Christ that didn’t die for all men. You are following a false gospel, a false gospel that says you must be regenerated BEFORE you repent and believe. When the Scripture says, “repent and believe” (Mark 1:15). You are following a false religion and you need to repent. Turn today from all your sin. Turn to Jesus Christ. Leave false religion behind and start following Him! May the Lord Jesus bless you.
