CALVINISM-TOTAL DEPRAVITY! PART 3


SPELLING EDITED


CALVINISM-TOTAL DEPRAVITY! PART 3


Exposing the errors of Calvinism in the LIGHT

of the

WHOLE WORD of God!


In the previous study, CALVINISM, TOTAL DEPRAVITY PART 2, we covered many of the verses of Scripture that are used to try and prove that the Bible teaches that all humans are BORN with a sinful nature. And in part 3 of this study on Calvinism, Reformed Theology, and the Grace Alone Christians, we will take a closer look at all the rest of the verses of Scripture that are used to try and prove that all humans are born with a sinful nature. If you recall, one of the main passages of Scripture that is used to try to support the teaching that we are born with is sinful nature is Romans 3:9-18.

So then, let us begin part three of this study to expose the errors of interpretation made by Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians by taking a CLOSER look at what the WHOLE word of Almighty God has to say about these verses of Scripture in Romans 3:9-18. For you see, on the surface these verses SEEM to say that there is NOT ONE RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE righteous person EVER. And that is why we need Jesus as our Savior. Now, while it is true that we all have fallen short of the glory of God and we all need a Savior, it is NOT true that the interpretation of Romans 3:9-18 that there has NEVER been a RIGHTEOUS person except for Jesus.

Please read Romans 3:9 which teaches us that we are ALL under SIN, both Jews, and Gentiles. And while you read these verses and what they are TRULY teaching us, please keep in mind that there is a DIFFERENCE between having a sinful NATURE to be TOTALLY DEPRAVED from what the word of TRUTH teaches us that ALL of mankind is UNDER sin. Again, there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between being UNDER sin and supposedly being BORN under sin. We will get to the explaining of understanding that difference shortly. But first, let us take a closer look at Romans 3:9-18 by taking a look at one verse at a time.


Romans 3:9.


“What then? are we BETTER than they? No, in no wise: for we have before PROVED both Jews and Gentiles, that they are ALL UNDER SIN;”


Now, the reason WHY Paul goes on in the following verses taking them OUT of CONTEXT in the Old Testament is to show further that ALL of mankind is UNDER SIN. Paul is doing as some preachers do today which is to use select verses of Scripture to drive home a point, even though the Scriptures that those preachers are using are prophecies of the last days. In other words, in truth, some preachers use verses of Scripture to drive home the point that they are making, but the Scriptures they using, are referring to another subject altogether. Nonetheless, they use them anyway because they help support the point that they are trying to make. And that is similar to what Paul is doing in Romans 3:9-18. In other words, in Romans 3:9-18, Paul quotes several verses of Scripture from different books of the Old Testament to drive home the point that Paul is making concerning that we are ALL UNDER SIN. But as you will see, Paul quotes these many verses OUT of CONTEXT of the prophecies concerning the last days when the FULNESS of the Gentiles will have come to full and nor MORE Gentiles or Jews will be saved DURING this present world.

Now, to better understand what I am saying, then you must know and understand that I myself see the NEW TESTAMENT as being letters and teachings that were written by men who were, indeed, inspired by God to write them down to be preserved so that they would not be lost by simply handing these teachings down verbally from generation to generation. But I do not believe that necessarily every single word written in the New Testament as being a “THUS SAYS THE LORD”. And what I mean by this is that there are places in the New Testament when Paul comes right out and plainly states that he is speaking as a MAN, which to ME, says that not every single word Paul says is inspired directly by God. In other words, I personally believe that at times Paul puts in his OWN opinion. 

Again, this is just MY OPINION and is NOT to be taken as a THUS SAYS the LORD either. I am just saying that CLEARLY, to those seeking the TRUTH, that Paul took these verses in Romans 3:9-18 OUT of CONTEXT of PROPHECY that he quoted from the Old Testament. And the context of all these quotes from several different places in the Old Testament ALL relates to the END of the last days. I believe that the Apostle Paul sincerely believed at the TIME he wrote the letter to the church in Rome that the coming of Jesus was very near at hand. And in order to make the point that we are ALL UNDER SIN, Paul used as many Scriptures that he could find to support that all men have fallen short of the glory of God. In other words, by Paul sincerely believing that the end of days was drawing nigh, Paul UNINTENIALLY MISLED many in the church today by quoting these verses OUT of CONTEXT of their referring to the END of the last days right before the coming of Jesus to execute the WRATH of Almighty God.

Now whether Paul did this INTENTIONALLY or UNINTENTIONALLY, I cannot say, but I would assume that he did it UNINTENTIONALLY not knowing that other Christians would misinterpret what he was trying to say and take it to the extreme and teach another gospel that is not the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Again, there are preachers today that take verses OUT of CONTEXT whether intentionally or unintentionally, to MAKE a POINT, and I personally believe that this is what Paul is doing here in Romans 3:9-18 to MAKE the POINT that ALL HAVE SINNED and, therefore, ALL of mankind have FALLEN SHORT of the glory of Almighty God. And, therefore, all are UNDER sin and THUS we all NEED a SAVIOR. But none of this means that we are all BORN under sin by being BORN with a sinful NATURE. Paul is simply COMPARING the Jews to the Gentiles. And the attitude of the Jews during that time is that the Jews were BETTER than the Gentiles. And Paul is CORRECTING their attitude by teaching the Jews that God CONCLUDED even the righteous of Jews to be UNDER SIN.


Romans 3:9-18.


“What then? Are we BETTER than they? (Also, keep in mind that God is ELIMINATING PRIDE by giving us HIS GRACE. The Jews considered themselves better than the Gentiles) No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are ALL UNDER SIN; (Then Paul goes on to try and FURTHER prove this truth, which he already said that he PROVED before. Anyway, for whatever reason, Paul goes on to say what has become a subject of controversy where no one is righteous, no not one single person)

10. As it is WRITTEN, There is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE: (So then, WHERE is it WRITTEN that there is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE? Let us read through the entire list of Scriptures that Paul QUOTES from different places in the Old Testament before we go to the Old Testament and read them in their CONTEXT)

11. There is NONE that understands, there is NONE that SEEKS after God.

12. They are ALL gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is NONE that does good, NO, NOT ONE. (Paul is quoting Psalm 14:3)

13. Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues, they have used deceit; (Paul is quoting Psalm 5:9) the poison of asps is under their lips: (Paul is quoting Psalm 140:3)

14. Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

15. Their feet are swift to shed blood:

16. Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17. And the way of peace have they not known:

18. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”


Now in verses 10, 11, and 12 Paul is quoting from Psalm 14 which clearly is NOT speaking about ALL of mankind, but RATHER, according to the context, those verses of Scripture are speaking of or prophesying of the FOOL that says there is NO God is the LAST days. 


Please read Psalm 14:1-5.


The FOOL has said in HIS heart, There is NO God. THEY (Speaking of those who FOOLISHLY say in THEIR heart that there is NO God. THEY) are corrupt, THEY have done abominable works, there is NONE (Clearly, speaking of NONE of THEM, the understood subject of who is being talked about, which is the FOOL that says there is NO God. There is NONE of THEM) that do good.

2. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. (This is a prophecy of the last days of WHEN the Lord will look down and see that the wickedness of the WICKED is come to FULL once more in the earth as it became in the days of Noah)

3. THEY (Again, speaking of the FOOL who says there is NO God in the last days, THEY) are all gone aside, THEY are all together BECOME filthy: there is NONE (Again, speaking of NONE of THEM, still the understood subject referring to the FOOLS in the last days that says there is NO God. There is NONE of THEM) that does good, NO, NOT ONE (Of THEM, speaking again of the FOOL in the last days when wickedness has come to completion which is the understood subject throughout this entire Psalm)

4. Have all the WORKERS of INIQUITY no knowledge? Who eat up MY PEOPLE (Thus PROVING that there are indeed GODLY and RIGHTEOUS people of God on the earth that are being killed by these WICKED people who say in THEIR heart that there is NO God. It is THESE workers of INIQUITY who eat up God's people) as THEY (Speaking of ONLY the WICKED and NOT of ALL of mankind as some FALSELY teach, THEY, the WICKED) eat bread, and call NOT upon the LORD.

5. There were THEY (Still speaking of the FOOL in the last days that says in his heart that there is NO God and who work iniquity including the killing of the RIGHTEOUS people of God. It is THEY, the FOOL that shall be) in great fear: (WHY? Why shall these FOOLS who say that there is NO God that persecutes the people of God start to FEAR in the last days? Because they will see Jesus when he comes to execute the WRATH of Almighty God. These verses LEFT in their CONTEXT clearly teach us that the THEY is speaking of ONLY the WICKED who will one day FEAR God) FOR (Or because) God is in the generation of the RIGHTEOUS.” 


Verse 5 again PROVES that Paul took these verse OUT of CONTEXT either intentionally or unintentionally, but, nonetheless, by NOT keeping them IN the CONTEXT they have led many to be MISLED into believing that Paul was speaking of ALL of mankind when he quoted Psalm 14 saying that there is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE.

The TRUTH of the matter none of these verses Paul quoted from the Old Testament in Romans 3:12-18 are speaking of ALL of mankind, as Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians FALSELY teach. But RATHER, they are prophecies of the last days that are all speaking of the WICKED at the END of the age when God shall judge the wicked because NONE of the WICKED, as in, no MORE of the WICKED will seek after God, and NONE of the WICKED will TURN from THEIR wicked way to be saved IN this present world.

In other words, the FULNESS of the Gentiles IN this PRESENT world will have come in and be completed when God will look upon the children of men and see for Himself that NONE of the WICKED will SEEK after God no matter how much the gospel is preached, NO NOT ONE of the WICKED will turn to God WHEN the wickedness has come to FULL. Jesus will say let the righteous remain righteous and let the unrighteous remain unrighteous knowing that the TIME has come when NONE of the wicked IN this PRESENT world shall turn to God.

Please read Psalm 14:7, the last verse in this short chapter from the Wycliffe translation that prophesies of the last days WHEN the DELIVERER shall come out of Zion to set Israel free from the nations that are warring against her at the battle of Armageddon.


Psalm 14:7 from the Wycliffe Translation.


“Who shall give from Zion health to Israel? WHEN the Lord has turned away the captivity of his people; Jacob shall fully be joyful, Jacob shall (Come to be in) full out joy, and Israel shall be glad. [Who shall give victory; Who shall give salvation, or deliverance, to Israel out of Zion? WHEN the Lord has RETURNED the prosperity of his people, then Jacob shall rejoice; yea, Israel shall be glad.]”


Now, in the first part of verse 13 in Romans chapter 3, Paul is quoting from Psalm 5. Lets us read the first part of Romans 3:13 again before we read Psalm 5:9 when it is LEFT in its entire CONTEXT.


Romans 3:13a.


“THEIR throat is an open sepulcher; with THEIR tongues THEY have used deceit...”


So then, WHO is the THEIR and the THEY speaking of here? Are the THEY and the THEIR here in this passage of Scripture referring to ALL of mankind as the Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians have FALSELY been TAUGHT? Well, let us see by taking a CLOSE look at Psalm 5:9 which is the verse that Paul is quoting in Romans 3:13a. But let us examine it in its CONTEXT by reading the entire Psalm 5:1-12 which CLEARLY and PLAINLY teaches us that Paul is quoting about the LAST DAYS and that there are in fact RIGHTEOUS people of God on the earth in the last days who are PRAYING this Psalm about the WICKED to be DESTROYED. For you see, during the last 3 1/2 years of this present world, the WICKED will be killing the Christians and the Jews. So the pronouns “THEIR” and “THEY” are referring ONLY to the WICKED because THEY are killing the RIGHTEOUS.


Psalm 5:1-12.


“Give ear to MY words, O LORD, consider MY meditation. (It is the RIGHTEOUS who seek God in prayer. And in the last days the righteous will pray this prayer)

2. Hearken unto the voice of MY cry, MY King, and MY God: for unto you will I pray.

3. MY voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct MY prayer unto you, and will look up.

4. For thou are not a God that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with you.

5. The FOOLISH (Speaking of the FOOLISH wicked people who say that there is NO God and who work iniquity) shall NOT stand in your sight: you hate all WORKERS of INIQUITY.

6. You shall DESTROY THEM that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7. BUT as for ME, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy: and in your fear will I worship toward your holy temple.

8. Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of MY enemies; make your way straight before MY face.

9. For (Or because) there is NO faithfulness in THEIR mouth; THEIR inward part is very wickedness; THEIR throat is an open sepulcher; THEY flatter with THEIR tongue.

10. DESTROY you THEM, O God; let THEM fall by THEIR own counsels; cast THEM out in the multitude of THEIR transgressions; for THEY have rebelled against you.

11. BUT let all THOSE that put their TRUST in you rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because you defend them: let them also that love your name be joyful in you.

12. For you, LORD, will bless the RIGHTEOUS; with favor will you compass him (The RIGHTEOUS) as with a shield.”


CLEARLY, verse 9 which Paul is quoting in the first half of Romans 3:13a is speaking of the WICKED in the LAST DAYS when the RIGHTEOUS are praying to God to DESTROY THEM, because there are NONE of the WICKED that are SEEKING after God, NO, NOT ONE WICKED person is seeking after God. Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, that when these verses are LEFT in their CONTEXT then it becomes CLEAR to those seeking the TRUTH that these verses are NOT speaking of ALL for mankind as being UNRIGHTEOUS and that there is NONE of ALL of mankind that is RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE.

But RATHER, when these verses are read in their CONTEXT they clearly and plainly teach us that the NONE who are RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE is speaking of ONLY the WICKED in the LAST DAYS who are NOT seeking after God. And, as you will soon see, in each and every verse that Paul quotes from the Old Testament in Romans 3:9-18, when LEFT IN the CONTEXT of where it is found, plainly shows us that there are, in fact, RIGHTEOUS people of God who are being persecuted and killed by the WICKED who say that there is NO God in the last days. Let us move on to the next verse of Scripture that Paul quotes in order to drive home the truth that God has CONCLUDED ALL to be under sin after the cross and resurrection of Jesus.

In the last half of verse 13, Paul is quoting from Psalm 140:3. Again, let us read the last half of Romans 3:13 before we read the entire CONTEXT of Psalm 140:3, which again, is NOT speaking of ALL of mankind as Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians have been FALSELY taught.


Romans 3:13b.


“...the poison of asps is under their lips:”


Now here is Psalm 140:3 which Paul is again quoting OUT of CONTEXT. However, I have left in its ENTIRE CONTEXT so that you can see the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God. Please read Psalm 140:1-13, which again, is CLEARLY speaking of the LAST DAYS when the WICKED are CONTINUALLY making WAR against Israel.


Psalm 140:1-13.


Deliver ME, (Speaking of the RIGHTEOUS in the LAST DAYS. Again, it is ONLY the WICKED who do NOT seek God but the RIGHTEOUS will seek God praying, DELIVER ME) O LORD, from the EVIL MAN: preserve ME from the VIOLENT MAN;

2. Which imagine mischief in THEIR heart; continually are THEY gathered together for WAR.

3. THEY have sharpened THEIR tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under THEIR lips. Selah.

4. Keep ME, (Speaking of the righteous seeking God for protection praying keep ME) O LORD, from the hands of the WICKED; preserve ME from the VIOLENT MAN; who have purposed to overthrow MY goings.

5. The PROUD have hidden a snare for ME, and cords; THEY have spread a net by the wayside; THEY have set gins for ME. Selah. (Or pause and think)

6. I said unto the LORD, You are MY God: hear the voice of MY supplications, O LORD.

7. O GOD the Lord, the strength of MY salvation, You have covered MY head in the DAY of BATTLE.

8. Grant NOT, O LORD, the desires of the WICKED: further NOT HIS WICKED device; lest THEY exalt themselves. Selah.

9. As for the head of those that compass ME about, let the mischief of THEIR own lips cover THEM.

10. Let burning coals fall upon THEM: let THEM be cast into the FIRE; into deep pits, that THEY rise not up again.

11. Let not an EVIL speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow HIM.

12. I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted and the right of the poor.

13. Surely the RIGHTEOUS shall give thanks unto your name: the UPRIGHT shall dwell in your presence.”


Again, CLEARLY, the CONTEXT is speaking of the WICKED and VIOLENT men in the LAST DAYS in the DAY of BATTLE when the WICKED shall make WAR against God's RIGHTEOUS people the Jews and the Christians.

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ that Paul has either intentionally or unintentionally taken these verses OUT of their CONTEXT when he quoted them in Romans 3:10-18. And, thereby, some Christians have been MISLED into believing that Paul was speaking about ALL of mankind when he said that there are NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE who SEEKS after God. Again, we can only assume as to reason WHY Paul took all these verses OUT of their CONTEXT. I can only suppose that he was trying to drive the point home that ALL of mankind have SINNED at one time or the other in their life. And, therefore, ALL of mankind, both the JEWS and the Gentiles, have fallen short of the glory of God. And thus God has CONCLUDED or considered ALL of mankind to be UNDER SIN so that God could shed forth His GRACE. And, THEREFORE, every person, EVEN all the righteous and good people have the NEED of a SAVIOR. And the ONLY name given by God to be saved is Jesus or Yeshua in Hebrew.

Now, I believe that the Apostle Paul was trying to show the Jews that under the NEW covenant that the salvation of mankind comes only through FAITH in the shed blood of Jesus, and not in our OWN righteousness which will ultimately produce PRIDE in us leaving us to believe we are BETTER than others. To ME, God made this new covenant to eliminate BOASTING! For you see, the very reason we are SAVED, as in, being brought back into the right relationship with God, is so that Almighty God the Father can give us His Holy Spirit to empower us to do good works of righteousness, but NOT in our OWN strength. Rather, being under grace in the New Covenant, we are HIS workmanship and all we do is by FAITH in HIS word and in HIS Spirit so that BOASTING is eliminated completely and ALL the GLORY goes to Almighty God and His Son Jesus.

Moving on to the next verse of Scripture in Romans chapter 3, we find that in Romans 3:14, Paul is quoting Psalm 10:7. Lets us read Romans 3:14 first before we read the CONTEXT of Psalm 10:7.


Romans 3:14.


“Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:”


Now, WHOSE mouth is this verse speaking of that is full of cursing and bitterness? Is it the mouth of every single person on the earth or ALL of mankind as some Christians have been incorrectly taught? Or is it the mouth of ONLY the WICKED in the LAST DAYS that this verse from Psalm 10:7 that Paul is quoting in Romans 3:14 is speaking about? Let us keep this verse in its CONTEXT by reading the entire Psalm 10:1-18.


Psalm 10:1-18.


“Why stand you afar off, O LORD? Why hide yourselves in TIMES of TROUBLE? (Speaking of the LAST DAYS right before Jesus comes to execute the WRATH of Almighty God upon the WICKED)

2. The WICKED in his pride does PERSECUTE the poor: let THEM (Speaking of the WICKED) be taken in the devices that THEY have imagined. (Now, there are good unsaved Jews that are POOR and there are good unsaved Gentiles that are POOR as well as there are good Christians, both Jews, and Gentiles who are POOR. Now, in Paul’s day it was the unsaved Jews in their PRIDE that persecuted the saved Jews and the saved Gentiles)

3. For the WICKED boasts of his heart's desire, (which today, the radical Muslims boast in their hearts to DOMINATE the world. And radical Muslims are killing all the Jews and the Christians in their Muslim DOMINATED countries) and blesses the covetous, whom the LORD abhors.

4. The WICKED, through the pride of his countenance, WILL NOT SEEK after God: (CLEARLY, it is the WICKED who is NOT righteous, NO, NOT ONE wicked person in the last days will SEEK after God) God is NOT in all HIS thoughts)

5. HIS ways are always grievous; your judgments are far above out of HIS sight: as for all his enemies, HE puffs at them.

6. HE has said in HIS heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.

7. HIS mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. (Paul is quoting this verse, Psalm 10:7 in Romans 3:14. So then, it is clear by the CONTEXT that it is the MOUTH of the WICKED ONLY and NOT ALL of mankind that this verse is speaking about)

8. He sits in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places, He does murder the innocent: (Speaking of the WICKED murdering the innocent Christians and the Jews. And not just the Christians and the Jews but ALSO every unsaved pagan Gentile that will refuse to convert to Isalm. For you see, this is what radical Muslims are doing in the world today. But this does NOT exclude the wicked of the elite rich people that keep the poor people poor by controlling the wealth of the world) his eyes are privily set against the poor.

9. He lies in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lies in wait to catch the poor: he does catch the poor when he draws him into his net.

10. He crouches, and humbles himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.

11. He has said in his heart, God has forgotten: he hides his face; he will never see it. (In other words, there is NO God)

12. Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up your hand: forget not the humble. (To me, in the last days, the Christians will pray FOR the basically good and HUMBLE people to be saved while knowing that the WICKED are a waste of time to continue to pray for them to be saved. My point is that there will be GOOD people that will still yet be saved DURING the last of the last days while the WICKED grow or increase in their wickedness)

13. Wherefore, do the wicked contemn God? he has said in his heart, You will not require it.

14. You have seen it; for you behold mischief and spite, to requite it with your hand: the poor commits himself unto you; you are the helper of the fatherless.

15. Break you the arm of the WICKED and the EVIL MAN: seek out his wickedness till you find none. (In other words, destroy every last one of the wicked Lord till there be no wicked person left will be the prayer and cry of not only Christians but also the prayer and cry of the unsaved Jews and the unsaved Gentiles who will no longer tolerate the extreme wickedness in the earth during the 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation)

16. The LORD is King forever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land. (Speaking of the last days when Jesus shall be Yahweh’s King of kings for 1000 years)

17. LORD, you have heard the desire of the humble: you WILL PREPARE their heart, you will cause your ear to hear:

18. To JUDGE the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may NO MORE OPPRESS.”


God is a just God and He will NOT judge the humble, the fatherless, and the oppressed people that are good righteous people to be destroyed along with the WICKED during the WRATH of God that will be executed by Jesus. God will DELIVER the UNSAVED remnant of the Jews along with many UNSAVED Gentiles to be left alive in their mortal bodies to go into the Millennial reign of Jesus to be taught the gospel of salvation DURING the 1000 year reign of Jesus.

 Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, that EVERY verse that Paul has quoted from the Old Testament in Romans 3:9-18 from the Old Testament has been taken OUT of CONTEXT either intentionally or unintentionally by the Apostle Paul. And all of these many quotes have been quoted from several DIFFERENT places in the Old Testament. And they have been quoted together in such a way as to lead one to incorrectly INTERPRET that the Apostle Paul is speaking of ALL of mankind when he says that NONE are RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE, and NONE SEEK after God, NO, NOT ONE.

But the TRUTH of the matter is that these verses, when LEFT in the CONTEXT, are CLEARLY speaking of ONLY the WICKED in the LAST DAYS right before the coming of Jesus that are the ones who are NOT seeking God. We can also see that none of the WICKED seek after God because the wickedness of the wicked will have BECOME so bad that there will be NONE of the WICKED in the last days that will TURN from their wickedness, NO, NOT ONE. In other words, the wickedness will have come to FULL when God will look down upon the children of men and SEE that NONE of the WICKED shall TURN from their wickedness and become RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE. And by the last days, I am referring to the very end of the last days right before the VISIBLE coming of Jesus.

You see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, NEITHER the REMNANT of unsaved Jews NOR unsaved Gentiles of all the nation of Israel of the lineage of Ishmael and Esau that will be warring against the Jews and the Christians in the Middle East will TURN to the Lord, UNTIL AFTER the rapture of the church and they SEE Jesus coming in flaming fire executing the WRATH of Almighty God. Please read the study entitled “THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS” for a deeper understanding of HOW things will be like in the last days when Jesus comes again for his church and to rescue Israel from total destruction.

But for now, let us continue this study in God's word by taking a CLOSER look at Romans 3:9-18, which is used by some to TRY and support the FALSE teaching that ALL of mankind are BORN with a SINFUL NATURE. And are, therefore, according to Calvinism and Reformed Theology Christians, are considered to be SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that none of mankind, not even the ELECT can understand the word of God enough to be SAVED UNTIL they are FIRST REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit of God.

In Romans 3:15, Paul is quoting Proverbs 1:16. Again, let us read Romans 3:15 before we read where Paul quoted verse 15 from in the old Testament.


Romans 3:15.


“THEIR feet are swift to shed blood:”


Again, whose are the THEIR feet that are swift to shed blood? Is it the feet of ALL of mankind that the Calvinistic and Reformed Theology Christian have been wrongly taught? Or is it the feet of the WICKED ONLY? Let us read Proverbs 1:10-16 which is the CONTEXT of Romans 3:15.


Proverbs 1:10-16.


MY son, (Speaking of the RIGHTEOUS) if SINNERS entice YOU, consent you not.

11. If THEY say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

12. Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

13. WE (Speaking of the SINNERS trying to ENTICE the RIGHTEOUS, WE the wicked) shall find all precious substance, WE shall fill our houses with spoil:

14. Cast in YOUR lot among us; let us all have one purse:

15. MY son, walk NOT you in the way with THEM; refrain your foot from THEIR path: (Again, proving that NOT ALL of mankind are UNRIGHTEOUS, because clearly here in the CONTEXT we see that the RIGHTEOUS are being ENTICED by the WICKED)

16. For THEIR feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood."



So then, the THEIR feet that are swift to shed blood in Romans 3:15 are the WICKED in the last days. So AGAIN, the pronoun “THEIR” in Romans 3:15, is referring to ONLY the WICKED and NOT to ALL of mankind as Calvinism and Reformed Theology Christian have FALSELY been taught by the false doctrines of ORIGINAL SIN and TOTAL DEPRAVITY. Clearly, the CONTEXT of the quoted Old Testament verses that Paul quoted in Romans 3:12-18 reveals to us the TRUTH that there are and will yet be many RIGHTEOUS people in the earth at the same time that the WICKED has become so wicked that NONE of the WICKED, NO, NOT ONE SEEK after God in the LAST DAYS right before the visible coming of Jesus. So to me, the Apostle Paul never “intended” his words to be “interpreted” as ALL of mankind will not seek God, no not one person will seek God. Let us continue with the next two verses in Romans chapter 3. In Romans 3:16,17, Paul is quoting Isaiah 59:7,8. Here is what Romans 3:16,17 says OUT of its CONTEXT of the passage of Scripture in the Old Testament.


Romans 3:16,17.


“Destruction and misery are in THEIR ways:

17. And the way of peace have THEY not known:”


Now, when I read Isaiah 59, I see again two groups of people, the WICKED and the RIGHTEOUS which, to ME, proves that the NONE who are righteous cannot POSSIBLE be CORRECTLY INTERPRETED to mean ALL of mankind as some Christians have been FALSELY taught by the man-made doctrines of ORIGINAL SIN and TOTAL DEPRAVITY.

And I also see ISRAEL as being in transgression against God and being heavily persecuted, but yet, they do not cry out to God for judgment. Rather, they take matters into their own hands while all the while God is wanting them to call upon him.

I also see in verse 15 that those who DEPART from WICKEDNESS make themselves a TARGET or PREY for the wicked to cut them down. And the more I study about ISLAM and the LAST DAYS I am seeing Isaiah 59:15 being fulfilled today. For you see, when a Muslim sees the TRUTH of God's word, as written in the Holy Bible, and they turn from Islam and call upon Jesus to be their Savior, then they became TARGETS or PREY that their own family members seek to KILL.

You see, in Muslim-dominated countries those who DEPART from WICKEDNESS, speaking of the wickedness of radical Muslims persecuting and killing God's RIGHTEOUS people, the Christians, and the Jews. In other words, the pronouns “their” and “they” in Roamans 3:16,17 are those who DEPART from ISLAM making themselves a TARGET to be killed by their OWN people. But you do not see this until you read the CONTEXT of the quoted verses from the Old Testament that Paul quoted in Romans 3:16,17.

Also, there will be those who depart from evil who will be persecuted just because they believe in God and do that which is right in the eyes of God and the Lord, who is displeased with all this persecution of His righteous people, but more so because there is no cry being made to Almighty God Yahweh to execute His JUDGMENT upon the wicked.


Please read Isaiah 59:7,8.


“THEIR feet run to evil, and THEY make haste to shed innocent blood: THEIR thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 

8.  The way of peace THEY know not; and there is no judgment in THEIR goings: THEY have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein shall not know peace.” 


Now read the context found in Isaiah 59:15.


“Yea, truth fails, and he that DEPARTS from EVIL MAKE HIMSELF PREY: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.”


Now, you can NOT depart from evil if so be that ALL of mankind is so totally depraved that NONE is righteous and NONE seeks God, no not one. Again, the CONTEXT in the Old Testament verses that Paul quotes in Romans 3:9-18 is speaking of ONLY the WICKED.

In Romans 3:18, Paul is quoting Psalm 36:1. First, read Romans verse 18 before we read the context of Psalm 36:1.


Romans 3:18.


“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”


So again, WHO is the pronoun “their” referring to, according to the CONTEXT of the Old Testament passage of Scripture. The only way to know for SURE is to read Psalm 36:1 in its ENTIRE CONTEXT, which again is prophesying of the LAST DAYS when the wickedness of the WICKED has come to full and the TIME of JUDGMENT has come. To ME, there is NO DOUBT that the pronoun “THEIR” throughout Romans 3:12-18 is speaking of ONLY the WICKED and NOT ALL of mankind as some Christians have FALSELY been taught by the FALSE doctrines of ORIGINAL SIN and TOTAL DEPRAVITY. Here is Psalm 36:1-12 which clearly teaches us that the pronoun “THEIR” that refers to people who have NO FEAR of God before “THEIR eyes” is speaking of ONLY the WICKED, the FOOL that says in his heart that there is NO God.


Please read Psalm 36:1-12.


“The transgression of the WICKED says within my heart, that there is NO fear of God before HIS eyes. (In other words, the RIGHTEOUS man concludes in his own heart that the reason the wicked are so wicked is that they must believe in their heart that there is NO God first. And, therefore, there is NO FEAR of God before HIS or THEIR eyes)

2. For he flatters himself in his own eyes until his iniquity be FOUND to be hateful. (In other words, the WICKED have become SO WICKED and PRIDEFUL that THEIR sins have become HATED and it GRIEVES and REPENTS God to have to DESTROY the WICKED. Once again, God takes NO PLEASURE in the death of the WICKED, but rather, God desires that the WICKED TURN from their wicked ways and LIVE. It is God’s WILL that ALL of mankind be saved but He leaves the CHOICE of following Him up to each individual person)

3. The words of HIS mouth are iniquity and deceit: HE (Speaking of ONLY the WICKED) has LEFT OFF to be wise, (Again, PROVING that ALL of mankind are NOT BORN WICKED because one has to be RIGHTEOUS before one can leave off being wise) and to do good.

4. HE devises mischief upon his bed; HE sets HIMSELF in a way that is not good; (Again, PROVING that ALL of mankind do NOT INHERIT a SINFUL NATURE, but rather, each individual person makes their own choice of their own free will to CHOOSE to set THEMSELVES in the way that is evil) he abhors not evil.

5. Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and your faithfulness reaches unto the clouds.

6. Your righteousness is like the great mountains; your judgments are a great deep: O LORD, you preserve man and beast.

7. How excellent is your loving-kindness, O God! Therefore, the CHILDREN of MEN put their TRUST under the shadow of your wings.

8. THEY (Speaking of ONLY those CHILDREN of MEN who make the CHOICE to TRUST in the Lord and who call upon the name of the Lord to be saved) shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of your house, and you shall make them drink of the river of your pleasures.

9. For with you is the fountain of life: in your light shall we see light.

10. O continue your loving kindness unto them that know you; and your righteousness to the UPRIGHT in the heart. (Again, proving that not EVERY heart of mankind is evil continually as some FALSELY teach)

11. Let not the foot of pride come against ME, and let not the hand of the WICKED remove ME.

12. There are the WORKERS of INIQUITY fallen: THEY are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.” 


Verse 12 is prophesying of the LAST DAYS when the judgment shall be executed upon the WICKED.

Now, I have CLEARLY and PLAINLY shown that in EVERY single verse that Paul QUOTED from the Old Testament was TAKEN OUT of CONTEXT and made to be “INTERPRETED” to say something that the CONTEXT clearly does NOT say or teach. And those incorrect “interpretations” have consequently has led some Christians to FALSELY believe that Paul was teaching that ALL of mankind is WICKED and that there is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE who SEEKS after God of the entire human race.

HOWEVER, the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God CLEARLY and PLAINLY reveals that these verses that Paul is quoting from the Old Testament Scriptures that Paul wrote in the letter to the church at Rome in Romans 3:12-18 from the Old Testament are speaking of ONLY the WICKED in the LAST DAYS who are NOT SEEKING after God. And NONE of the WICKED, NO, NOT ONE WICKED person in the LAST DAYS will SEEK after God, NO, NOT ONE.

You see, the WICKED, who will in the near future have come to the FULNESS of THEIR wickedness, will NOT SEEK God, UNTIL Jesus comes in the clouds of glory and power, and then a REMNANT of the nations will CALL upon the Lord and be saved ALIVE to go into the 1000 year reign of Jesus in their MORTAL bodies to be taught of the Lord. For a deeper understanding of this truth please read the study entitled “THE SECOND COMING of JESUS, but for now, let us continue with this study in God word EXPOSING the FALSE teaching of Calvinism by closely examining the doctrines of Reformed Theology in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God.

There still might be some Christians who believe and teach the doctrine of original sin and the doctrine of total depravity that will say that I am the one who is twisting the Scriptures, to fit my own doctrine because the Bible clearly says that the HEART of MAN is DESPERATELY WICKED. Then they will quote Jeremiah 17:9 to TRY and prove their own man-made doctrine of  “total depravity” in the acronym T.U.L.I.P. in five points in Calvinism and in Reformed Theology. We will first read Jeremiah 17:9 out of its context.


Jeremiah 17:9.


“The HEART is DECEITFUL above all things, and DESPERATELY WICKED: who can know it?”


As I have said many times, any verse when taken OUT of CONTEXT and viewed ALONE and APART from the WHOLE word of God may SEEM to be saying something that it is NOT TRULY saying in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God.

So again, WHOSE heart is deceitful above all things? And WHOSE heart is desperately wicked? Is it the heart of EVERY single human being ever born, in that, every single human being is BORN with a desperately wicked heart that is deceitful above all things?

OR is it ONLY the heart of those who have BECOME WICKED? In other words, is the CONTEXT of this verse speaking about EVERY heart of ALL of mankind, or is the TRUE sound Biblical meaning of this verse when LEFT in its CONTEXT speaking about the ONLY the HEART that has BECOME WICKED that is DECEITFUL above all things? And, according to Calvinism and Reformed Theology, the HEART that is BORN DESPERATELY wicked. But yet the Bible itself teaches us that the hearts of only wicked people have BECOME WICKED  and is some people their hearts have now become so DESPERATELY WICKED that WHO can truly KNOW it.

Well, let us again read the CONTEXT to find out if Jeremiah 17:9 is referring to every person as being BORN with a desperately wicked heart as Calvinism and Reformed Theology Christians claim? Please read Jeremiah 17:1, then continue reading verses 5-10. Keep in mind that in verse 1, we read that it is the SIN of Judah is written upon the table of THEIR heart.


Jeremiah 17:1.


“The SIN of Judah (And NOT the so-called INHERITED wicked sinful nature of ALL of mankind is supposedly BORN with) is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of THEIR heart, (Speaking of the hearts of the people of the tribe of JUDAH and NOT the heart of ALL of mankind) and upon the horns of your altars;”



Then God warns them in verses 2-4 and also in the following verses 5-10 that IF they continue in their sin that he will cut them off from the land because THEIR heart has DEPARTED from the Lord. Now read verses 5 through 10.


Jeremiah 17:5-10.


“Thus says the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and WHOSE HEART DEPARTS from the LORD. (So then, it is the HEART that trusts in MAN and the HEART that DEPARTS from the Lord WHOSE heart is DECEITFUL. It is ONLY the heart that has BECOME DESPERATELY WICKED and NOT the hearts of ALL of mankind that have supposedly been BORN with this WICKED SINFUL HEART and they have NO CHOICE in the matter)

6. For HE ( Speaking of the ones who DEPART from the Lord) shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good comes; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. (Then in the next two verses, the Lord goes on to CONTRASTS the difference between the HEART that is DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED BECAUSE that heart has DEPARTED from the Lord against or compared next to the HEART that TRUSTS in the Lord and does NOT depart from the Lord. Thus again, the CONTEXT of all the verses of Scripture that are used to TRY and prove Calvinism and Reformed Theology actually PROVE that ALL of mankind is NOT BORN with a wicked heart that has a sinful NATURE because of the original sin of Adam)

7. Blessed is the man that TRUSTS in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

8. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Then in the next verse, God goes back to speaking about the HEART that has DEPARTED from the Lord and trusts in MAN)

9. The HEART (Speaking of ONLY the HEART that DEPARTS from the Lord) is DECEITFUL above all things, and DESPERATELY WICKED: who can know it? (Then in the next verse, we learn that there are obviously DIFFERENT kinds of HEARTS. For you see, WHY would God even bother to SEARCH the HEART to find out which KIND of HEART a person has if so be that every person is BORN with a deceitful and desperately wicked heart that is so totally deprived that not one single person can seek after God?)

10. I the LORD SEARCH the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to HIS WAYS, and according to the fruit of HIS DOINGS.”


Now IF i the Calvinistic and Reformed Theology “INTERPRETATION of Jeremiah is true that means that ALL of mankind is BORN with a DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED HEART, and thus they have no choice in the matter to do anything but sin. And consequently, this would mean that ALL of mankind BEFORE the cross and resurrection of Jesus would be JUDGED ACCORDING to his EVIL WICKED WAYS. For you see, according to the words of Jesus the FRUIT of a WICKED EVIL heart can ONLY bring forth EVIL. Jesus clearly and plainly teaches us this truth in the gospels that the treasures of an evil heart bring forth evil. But Jesus ALSO says that that good treasures of the heart will bring forth GOOD things for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Please read the study “THE POWER OF OUR WORDS!”

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, Jeremiah 17:9 is speaking of ONLY the HEART of those who DEPART from the Lord whose heart is DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED, who can know it? So again, Jeremiah 17:9 is NOT speaking of the heart of every single human being as Calvinism and Reformed Theology Christians falsely teach.

Also, please notice that EVEN people who DEPART from the Lord whose heart BECAME WICKED does not mean that they were BORN with a deceitful and desperately wicked heart. And, therefore, according to the false doctrine of total depravity, they are SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that they are rendered TOTALLY UNABLE to turn to God without FIRST being REGENERATED or born again of the Holy Spirit. For you see, the context of this Jeremiah 17:9 clearly teaches us that the hearts of the men of Judah became desperately wicked and then they DEPARTED from the Lord. Now you can not DEPART from the Lord until you have first been keeping the commandments of the Lord which proves that those who departed from the Lord had to have been walking in a right relationship with the Lord BEFORE they DEPARTED.

However, Calvinism and Reformed Theology teach that it is impossible to be in the right relationship with God UNTIL a person is born again or REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit. But yet, the word of TRUTH teaches us that the new birth or the regeneration of the Holy Spirit was not given to mankind UNTIL the death and resurrection of Jesus. So then, HOW can Calvinism be true seeing that there are indeed RIGHTEOUS people all through the Old Testament? They were RIGHTEOUS long fore the New Covenant established in the shed blood of Jesus. According to Calvinism and Reformed Theology, even the very ELECT are so totally depraved that they CANNOT please or even seek God UNTIL they are FIRST regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Again, the new birth or the regeneration of the Holy Spirit was NOT YET given until the death and resurrection of Jesus. And IF the doctrine of original sin and total depravity is true then that would consequently mean that every person from Adam to Jesus is UNRIGHTEOUS. And we know that Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Job, and Daniel were RIGHTEOUS before God. So Calvinism and Reformed Theology CONTRADICTS what the Bible ITSELF actually teaches.

Calvinism also clearly teaches that ALL of the ELECT, according to THEIR definition of the word “elect”, will be saved, without fail, and that NONE of the ELECT can ever LOSE their salvation no matter what they do or do not do. Calvinism further teaches that NOT even one single NON ELECT person, according to the own definition of the word “elect”, will be drawn to God to be saved. And then Calvinism concludes that NO person who is NOT REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit FIRST can come to the Lord. Therefore, according to the five main doctrines of Calvinism, ONLY the people lucky enough to have been CHOSEN by God to be saved BEFORE the foundation of the world can be saved. And that is a sad doctrine indeed. For you see, no Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians can ever know for sure if their spouse or any of the children are one of the so-called ELECT. In fact, they can NOT know for sure that if THEY are one of the elect.

For you see, according to them, all the Christians who sincerely believe that they are, indeed. True born-again Christians, if they DEPART from the Lord then they were NOT one of the ELECT, according to their definition of the word “elect”.

Every Calvinist Christian that I have talked to will argue that those who DEPART from the Lord were NEVER truly saved. Calvinism totally CONTRADICTS itself and the Bible in so many ways. So do NOT TRUST in the MAN-made doctrines that DEPART from the Lord by DEPARTING from TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. I implore you my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ to think the truth THROUGH for YOURSELF. Do not DEPART from the CLEAR, PLAIN, and SIMPLE word of God.

With that being said let us go to the gospels and see what our Lord Jesus the Christ said about the TWO DIFFERENT kinds of HEARTS, the GOOD heart and the EVIL heart, and HOW the HEART BECOMES EVIL rather than the heart as being born evil and continually wicked. 


Please read Luke 6:43-49.


“For a GOOD tree (Speaking of the analogy of a GOOD tree meaning a GOOD person) brings NOT forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

44. For EVERY tree is KNOWN by his OWN fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

45. A GOOD MAN out of the GOOD TREASURE of his HEART brings forth that which is GOOD; and an evil man out of the EVIL TREASURE of his heart brings forth that which is EVIL: for of the ABUNDANCE of the heart his mouth speaks.

46. And WHY call you me, Lord, Lord, and DO NOT the things which I say?

47. Whosoever comes to me, and hears my sayings, and DOES them, I will show you to whom he is like:

48. HE (Speaking of ONLY of the whosoever who BELIEVE in Jesus and ALSO obey the teachings of Jesus) is like a man which built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

49. BUT he that hears, and does NOT, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”


In other words, it is up to us, each and every person to make the TREASURE in our own heart GOOD in ABUNDANCE so that we become DOERS of the word and NOT just HEARERS ONLY whereby we DECEIVE our own self. Now please read Matthew 12:33-37 where Jesus warns us to either make the tree GOOD and the FRUIT GOOD, or else make the tree CORRUPT and the FRUIT CORRUPT, because the one who is LUKEWARM Jesus will spew out of his mouth when he comes.


Matthew 12:33-37.


“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is KNOWN by HIS fruit. (Jesus is warning mankind and saying YOU, as in, your yourself make the YOUR fruit GOOD)

34. O generation of VIPERS, how can you, (Speaking of that particular generation of the Scribes and Pharisees in the days of Jesus who were like VIPERS. How can, YOU) being evil, (Or being considered by God as being evil BY the FRUIT you are bearing) speak good things? For out of the ABUNDANCE of the heart the mouth speaks.

35. A GOOD MAN out of the GOOD TREASURE of the heart brings forth GOOD things: (Which means that ANY person can learn to choose the GOOD and refuse the evil. Even Jesus was visited by Almighty God every morning as he was growing up, And morning by morning, the child Jesus was TAUGHT how to CHOOSE the good and REFUSE the evil. Jesus LEARNED obedience BY the things he suffered. Jesus was TEMPTED in all points like we are tempted but yet Jesus always CHOSE the GOOD and refused the evil by hiding God’s word as the TREASURE of his HEART) and an evil man out of the EVIL TREASURE brings forth EVIL things. (This does NOT mean that some men are BORN evil. But rather, it means that we are born innocent and good and then we LEARN to do evil things a little at a time until we corrupt our OWN hearts by the wrong choices that we make)

36. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

37. For by your words you shalt be justified, and by your words, you shall be condemned.”


My point right now is this. When a born-again Christian continually SPEAKS out of his or her mouth that they are SINNERS, then that is what THEY will bring BROUGHT FORTH. If you are TIRED of giving in to temptations that tempt you to sin then start changing the TREASURE of your HEART to that which is GOOD by SPEAKING the end from the beginning. Keep speaking the GOOD that you DESIRE to be until it becomes the ABUNDANCE of your heart and you begin to speak God's word of TRUTH that you are a NEW CREATION. Confession is MADE unto salvation. So keep confessing GOOD things until that the OLD treasure of your heart which BECAME EVIL has PASSED away and is DEAD to you.

Begin reading and meditating on the word of God that teaches you that you are MORE than a conqueror THROUGH Jesus Christ and the anointing that is in you. For a deeper understanding of how you can live free from sin please read the study called “HOW YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE FREE FROM SIN” And also, please read the study entitled THE POWER OF OUR WORDS!”. But for now, let us continue this study in God's word to expose the lies of these FALSE doctrines of original sin and total depravity.

Now even after all this clear and plain evidence from God's word that proves beyond any shadow of a doubt to those seeking the TRUTH of God's word that mankind did NOT INHERIT a SINFUL NATURE because of the original sin of Adam, there are still some “hardcore” Calvinistic and Reformed Theology Christians that still want to cling to that which they have been taught by these FALSE man-made doctrines of original sin and total depravity based upon other verses of Scripture such as Job 15:14. 


Job 14:14.


“What is MAN, that he should be CLEAN? And he which is BORN of a woman, that he should be RIGHTEOUS?”


As I have said many times, ANY verse when taken OUT of CONTEXT and viewed ALONE and APART from the WHOLE word of God may SEEM to be saying something that the whole word of God does NOT teach. So then, let us keep this verse in perspective to the WHOLE word of God and see what the TRUTH of the matter truly is.

Now if you read the entire context beginning with Job 15:1 you will see that a MAN named Eliphaz was MOCKING Job, who was maintaining that he himself was a RIGHTEOUS man before God. Now in Job 13:15, we see that Job is DECLARING to Eliphaz and his friends that he would MAINTAIN his WAYS. Then in Job 12:4, we see that the WAYS of Job were UPRIGHT or RIGHTEOUS before God.


Job 12:4.


“I am as one MOCKED of his neighbor, who CALLS upon God, and He ANSWERS him: (Speaking of Yahweh ANSWERING the prayers of Job to say that Job is a just an upright man) the JUST UPRIGHT MAN is laughed to scorn.”



So then, in the Book of Job, we have TWO different sides of a coin so to speak. On one side we have a MAN named Eliphaz that says the words, what is MAN that he should be CLEAN and one BORN of a woman that he should be RIGHTEOUS. And on the other side, we have another man named Job who MAINTAINS that he is a JUST and UPRIGHT MAN before God.

Now, WHO is right and who is wrong because BOTH cannot men be right. Either ALL of mankind is BORN WICKED and SINFUL, OR ALL of mankind is BORN INNOCENT and RIGHTEOUS before God. Both ways cannot be right.

Well, I suppose that you can have YOUR OPINION and I suppose that I could have my opinion as well. But for ME, I would rather let the WHOLE word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, speak for itself and teach us which man is right by comparing Scripture with Scripture.

So then, let us go to the end of the book of Job and read Job 42:7, where we see Almighty God HIMSELF speaking of this SAME matter of the THINGS which this MAN Eliphaz has SPOKEN to Job.


Job 42:7.


“And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My WRATH is kindled against YOU, and against your two friends: (WHY?) FOR (Or because) YOU (Speaking of ALL THREE of YOU, you AND your TWO friends) have NOT spoken of me the thing that is RIGHT, as my servant Job HAS.”


So then, this man Eliphaz did NOT speak that which is RIGHT before God when he SPOKE these words in Job 15:14 which is one of the verses of Scripture that is used to TRY and prove that Calvinism and Reformed Theology is what the Bible teaches.


Job 5:14.


“What is MAN that he should be CLEAN and one BORN of a woman that he should be RIGHTEOUS.”



Now seeing that Yahweh Himself says that Eliphaz did NOT speak to Job that which is RIGHT and that God’s WRATH was kindled AGAINST Eliphaz and his two friends, then if I were you, then I would NOT join in with Eliphaz and speak the SAME words AGAINST the TRUTH of the words of Almighty God Himself. Think about this for a moment, those words in Job 5:15 caused God’s WRATH to be kindled against Eliphaz for saying that MAN is BORN UNCLEAN and that MAN cannot be CLEAN and RIGHTEOUS before God. And both Calvinism and Reformed Theology are teaching the SAME thing the Eliphaz spoke.

Now if you are still not convinced that Job was a RIGHTEOUS and UPRIGHT man before Almighty God and that Eliphaz spoke AGAINST the words of Yahweh Himself, then let us go to the beginning of the book of Job and read Job 1:1,8 and Job 2:3 which clearly teaches us that Job is a RIGHTEOUS man. For you see, it is Almighty God HIMSELF who DECLARES Job to be a PERFECT and UPRIGHT MAN. And this was way before the rebirth born- again experience and regeneration of the Holy Spirit were made available to all mankind through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.


Job 1:1.


“There was a MAN in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and THAT MAN was PERFECT and UPRIGHT, and one that feared God, and eschewed (Or chose the good to FLEE from) evil.”


Well, some may say, that was just the narrator of the book of Job who said that and not Almighty God Himself. So to you doubters, I say keep reading because in Job 1:8 it is CLEARLY Almighty God speaking these SAME words.


Job 1:8.


“And the LORD (Or Yahweh) said unto Satan, Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN, one that fears God, and eschews evil?”



Then Almighty God REPEATS almost these same exact words again to us making sure that we KNOW without a doubt that MAN can be PERFECT and UPRIGHT before God even under the attack of Satan the devil.


Job 2:3.


“And the LORD (Or Yahweh Himself AGAIN) said unto Satan, Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN, one that fears God, and eschews evil? And STILL, he holds fast his INTEGRITY, although you move me against him, to destroy him without cause.”



So EVEN under the direct attack of Satan, we can REMAIN that PERFECT and UPRIGHT MAN that we have BECOME or have been restored to THROUGH the shed blood of Jesus who set us FREE from the DOMINION of SIN. Now the phrase, “there is NONE like him” does NOT mean that Job is the ONLY man who is just and upright or RIGHTEOUS before God. For you see, before Job there was no man that God allowed Satan to oppress so severely as Satan oppressed Job, And still yet, Job did NOT quit being just and righteous before God. Even Job’s wife was used by Satan to tempt Job to curse God and die. That is why Yahweh said that is NONE like him. I believe that Job is a “prophetic” picture of Jesus being oppressed with such a severe crucifixion like no other in the history of crucified men.

Now that you have seen what the word of TRUTH in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God TRULY teaches us, you are going to have to make a choice as to which side you are going to believe. Are you going to choose the side of the MAN Eliphaz who says “What is MAN that he should be CLEAN and One BORN of a woman that he should be RIGHTEOUS”? Remember that God’s WRATH was kindled AGAINST Eliphaz for NOT speaking that which is RIGHT in the eyes of Yahweh. Also, keep in mind the Lucifer, aka, Satan BLAME God for CREATING him with a sinful rebellious nature.

OR are you going to side with the word of TRUTH, as in, the WHOLE word of Almighty God where Almighty God Himself plainly and clearly declared the MAN Job to be a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN before him?

Keep in mind that those MEN who teach the FALSE doctrines of MEN on original sin and total depravity use Job 15:14 in order to TRY and proved their MAN-made doctrines.

My point is this, YOU can believe what you yourself CHOOSE to believe, but the TRUTH of the matter is that these FALSE doctrines of original sin and total depravity will only serve to KEEP you UNDER the BONDAGE of SIN. For you see, these FALSE doctrines of man teach you that you are BORN with a SINFUL NATURE and that it is YOUR NATURE to SIN. Therefore, you are going to CONTINUE to SIN no matter how hard you try NOT to SIN. For you see. You have CHOSEN to sincerely believe that you were BORN with a sinful NATURE. 

How many times have you heard the EXCUSE, “I am ONLY HUMAN” to excuse their SIN? Can you not see that BELIEVING that you have a sinful NATURE causes you to BELIEVE that you will always continue to SIN? Be warned that God says that we are WITHOUT EXCUSE. So stop BLAMING your sinning on a so=called inherited sinful nature that you were supposedly BORN with. And, therefore, Satan has deceived you through false teaching that ONLY Jesus can live without sin.

Now, if you truly desire to quit sinning and be an OVERCOMER, then start believing the WHOLE word of Almighty God, rather than the false doctrines of MAN. If you truly want to do what your new HEART wants to do, which is to LIVE WITHOUT SIN, then start BELIEVING the WHOLE word of God. To ME, the whole word of God clearly teaches us that we are NOT born with a sinful NATURE. Now one place to start seeing and understanding the WHOLE word of God is by FIRST asking God in faith to show you the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God. Then I would encourage you to please read the study “HOW YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE FREE FROM SIN”

By now, it should be clear to all of you who are truly seeking the TRUTH of the whole word of God that the man-made doctrine of “TOTAL DEPRAVITY” has been proven FALSE by the whole word of Almighty God. And, therefore, all of the other four points of T.U.L.I.P. also fall and are proven false as well along with the doctrine of total depravity. For you see, the teaching of Calvinism and Reformed Theology can only stand if ALL five points of Calvinism are proven to be sound Biblical teaching. And, therefore, is just ONE point of Calvinism and Reformed Theology that is proven to be FALSE by the Bible that ALL of Calvinism and Reformed Theology is proven to be FALSE as well. And thus you should  REJECT Calvinism and Reformed Theology as doctrines of Devils.

Please understand that I want you, the reader and seeker of the TRUTH, to be thoroughly convinced leaving not one trace of a doubt that both Calvinism and Reformed Theology are NOT sound Biblical teaching. So let us move on to the next letter in the acronym T.U.L.I.P. which is the letter “U” to show from the whole word of God that the doctrine of “UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION” does not stand under the LIGHT of God word. To continue reading part four of this study on examining Calvinism in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God please click on the link “CALVINISM - UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION- TRUE OR FALSE? PART 4” And if you have not read part one and part two then here are the links “CALVINISM-TRUE OF FALSE?-PART 1”, “CALVINISM-TOTAL DEPRAVITY-PART 2”, and “CALVINISM-TOTAL DEPRAVITY-PART 3”.

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


Your Brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
