If Christ died only for the "chosen", you have a Devil, not Christ. Predestination and the whole TULIP are only an heartless doctrine. How can you love the neighbor when in the secret of your heart you think God has condemned him/her before the foundation of the world to eternal damnation? What kind of Christ are you following when you despise missionaries around the world for harvesting many souls?
Calvinism cannot else than to develop a double face, one boasting the Gospel in the most common way, the other, after having in this way dragged the believer, unveils to him/her a "secret doctrine", of the Predestination. Predestination is only another face of Gnosticism and its search for the "secret knowledge". Stay away from this devilish cult!
The false teaching of calvinism: Does God love you? God applies the Word of God to the hearts and live of those He plans to save. Praying to God will not get us saved, but we will have the assurance that God knows of our intense desire to become saved.
The above statement is wicked and satanic, heartless, cruel and demeaning to the character of God.
John Calvin, to our pleasant dismay, said this regarding 2 Pet. 3.9:
So wonderful is His love towards mankind, that He would have them all to be saved, and is of His own self prepared to bestow salvation on the lost. But the order is to be noticed, that God is ready to receive all to repentance, so that none may perish; for in these words the way and manner of obtaining salvation is pointed out. Everyone us, therefore, who is desirous of salvation, must learn to enter in by this way.
Even John Calvin himself disagrees with his followers that the Greek “Pas” refers to all men that ever lived. So how does Calvin end up twisting his sickly mind for hidden meaning of Gnostics? He said,
But it may be asked, If God wishes none to perish, why is it that so many do perish? To this my answer is, that no mention here is made of the hidden purpose of God, according to which the reprobate are doomed to their own ruin, but only of his will as made known to us in the gospel.
For God there stretches forth his hand without a difference to all, but lays hold only of those, to lead them to himself, whom he has chosen before the foundations of the world.John Calvin is saying that God omitted the truth and you just have to accept it. Should we trust the presumption of Calvin?
Acts, ch. 17:
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

"Election" and Acts 13:48: two examples of Predestinarian twisting of Scripture
