If they believed i would agree , but they believe another gospel so no

Are you not acting like mere men? 4For when one says, "I follow Paul," "Calvin and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?

I follow Jesus Christ through scripture, that's all. If I am guilty then I am guilt of that furthermore to answer your previous post, faith comes by hearing, they must hear the gospel so that they can believe and be saved

Since I quit following man and his own religions, which come from his own thoughts, interpretations, pride and arrogance, I have found so much peace ..
I don't need the security of a label from the different denominations of religion any more..
I don't depend on a you-tube message or the televangelists for my spiritual food anymore..
The Holy Spirit now leads me through scripture instead of all the commentaries, different versions, and different articles I used to depend on for my knowledge..
He has enabled me to have a closer relationship with my creator through His Son..

When this thread first began, I searched Calvin and imo, he was not a nice person at all..
Even Paul admonished the early Church not to call themselves followers of any man..

As far as the op's question goes about sharing the Gospel..Yes I believe a calvinist or anyone who is born of the spirit can share the Gospel (the good news of Christ)..But there is a way of sharing without insulting, harrassment or meaningless arguements with other Christian brothers and sisters of a different denomination over scripture..
The best way of sharing is by showing Christ in you with your words, deeds and life you live, along with sincere, humble answers to questions..

Christ came to build the Church, not to divide it up into different groups headed by a man such as Calvin or any of the others..

Fundy, it seems to me that we can get so caught up with defending an religion/sect that it can take away from the gospel (GOOD NEWS).

Should Calvinists preach their interpretation of the "gospel" ........... should Catholics preach their interpretation ......... JWs .......... Arminians? - or should we seek truth and God for ourselves and not getting totally caught in interpretations?

What the person in the video was saying is contradictory - from what I can gather calvinists believe that God has elected/chosen some to salvation and the rest he will torment eternally. The person in the video says they send themselves to hell because they do not believe. To me one negates the other if God chooses the elect and does not choose the rest then the rest do not have a choice.

If the reason they go to hell is because God did not elect/choose them that means God has sent them to hell and it is not because they did not choose God (salvation is in their hands)
