We couldn’t end our chapel service for Dr. Johanna Bos without breaking into her (in)famous round of Turpitude! The words as we sang them go thus:

Turpitude, moral turpitude
Depravity! Depravity!
Inherent baseness, inherent baseness.

However, Johanna has created new lyrics to the same melody that go:

Gratitude, deepest gratitude
Indebtedness! Indebtedness!
Anticipation, anticipation.

Calvinism

This is a list of verses and passages relating to my study of Calvinism, for any of my Christian followers interested. If any of you have any extra verses to add on, please feel free (:

Calvinism is summed up in five points, an acronym called TULIP, and I’ll post verses relating to each point underneath them. Some verses are repeated, as they relate to multiple points.

  • John 10:14-15
  • John 17:2-3, 9, 24
  • Galatians 1:3-4
  • Hebrews 9:28

Irresistible Grace - God’s will cannot be successfully resisted.

  • Job 42:2
  • Isaiah 14:24
  • Isaiah 46:9-10
  • Isaiah 55:11

  • John 5:24-26
  • John 6:47

  • II Corinthians 4:14, 17

  • Jude 24

These are just specific verses, I encourage you to read the chapters as well if you really want to study Calvinism.

Some Calvinists only believe in 3 points, I forgot which ones they leave out, but I don’t see how you can pick and choose from the points. If man is totally depraved, then he can’t choose God. If he can’t choose God, he needs to be chosen by God. If some are chosen by God then that means others aren’t chosen by God. If man was not chosen then God’s irresistible grace was not extended to him. If a man falls out of grace then grace was never extended to him. If it were possible to fall out of grace then God’s will is resistible and Christ died in vain. If God’s will isn’t irresistible then He isn’t God.
