Neo-Calvinism (Refuting Error)

No Law
Bobby R. Holmes and Mark Roberts

I. Error

    A. Neo-Calvinists say:
      1. "We are under grace, not law. We must not depend on what we do, but on God."
    B. Passages Misused:
      1. Romans 6:14-15
      2. Galatians 3:11

II. Truth

    A. Bible teaches we are under law and grace
      1. We are not under a law system whereby man works and earns his salvation:
        a) Ephesians 2:8-11
        b) Romans 3:23; 10:5
      2. However, we are under law:
        a) 1 Corinthians 9:21
        b) Romans 8:2
        c) Galatians 6:2
      3. This law is the Gospel, with all its accompanying commands, privileges, and provisions:
        a) James 1:25; 2:12
        b) Romans 8:2, 16-17
    B. Confusion about Grace
      1. Neo-Calvinists confuse basis for salvation (Christ) and the conditions for salvation (obedience).
      2. Is any really teaching, "I go to services three times a week and have been baptized and so I do not need Jesus"?
      3. Man must obey the Gospel, the law of Christ!when you hear it!
