Is calvanism biblical ? And I found this about it below but what does that say about us ?
Do your homework and history shows us that Calvinism doesn’t really come from John Calvin it comes from Augustine (one of the fathers of the Roman Catholic Church and called the father of the inquisition.)
Calvin quotes Augustine in his “Institutes on the Christian Religion” over 400 times.
Charles Spurgeon said, “Calvin derived it [Calvinism] mainly from the writings of Augstine.” (as cited in Dave Hunt’s book on Calvinism “What Love is This?”.
John Calvin admitted that if he wanted to write a confession of his faith he could only do so only with the writings of Augustine.
D. James Kennedy said in his book “Why I Am a Presbyterian” on pg 193 “I am a Presbyterian because I believe that Presbyterianism is the purest form of Calvinism”
RC Sproul said, “Augustinianism is presently called Calvinism or Reformed Theology”.
Calvinists agree that Calvin is not the originator of Calvinism, but Augustine was the one who came up with these ideas.
**Catholic Connection: Luther was an Augustinian monk and Calvin immersed himself in the writings of Augustine. The 2 best known fathers of the Protestant Reformation [Luther, Calvin] were heavily influenced by Augustine the devout Roman Catholic.
