What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
There are certain men crept in unawares, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into Calvinism. Israel was never to be replaced by the church; Vatican be cursed, Calvinism be gone. Paul's heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved (Rom 10:1), and Romans 9 has nothing to do with John Calvin's ludicrous notion that God elect a few souls for heaven and the rest for hell. Not one ounce of Romans 9 can support such an outlandish hypothesis. Paul first lists eight golden qualities of the Israelite (9:4-5), and then seven considerations of why “The Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness” (9:30-31).
Not all Israel are of Israel (vr.6-9), and for Esau, the elder served the younger as was prophesied in the womb (vr.10-13). Calvinists twist scripture to suppose God hated Esau in the womb, but God hated Esau for his being profane (Heb 12:16-17). Tis true God can harden hearts, he did Pharaoh (vr.15-18), but one dare not reply against God for that (vr.19-23). Many are called and few chosen (vr.24, cf Matt20:16, 22:14), and Gentiles were thus graffed in (vr.25-26, cf 11:19-25). Finally, a remnant of Israel are indeed saved (vr.27), and all of us, Jew or Gentile could have ended as did Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha (vr.28-29).
What shall we say then? Paul loved Israel, Presbyterians hate Israel, and by their fruits ye shall know them. My heart's desire and prayer to God for Presbyterians, their Calvinism, Covenant, and Replacement Theology, is that they might be saved. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Be careful for sound doctrine.
