In Christianity today many of the most popular and prominent Christian teachers are reformed and are teaching a Calvinistic interpretation of the Bible. It is our conviction that Calvinism is incorrect in their theology concerning the sovereignty of God and therefore they are teaching an incorrect understanding of many scriptures to the body of Christ.

 The goal of our "Answering Calvinism" series is to provide a loving and respectful reply to our reformed brothers and sisters. Primarily we want to exalt and centralize Jesus Christ in the sovereignty of God and the doctrines of election and predestination and in doing so to offer a reply to Calvinism's interpretation of scripture for the purpose of encouraging and equipping the church for a more full and pure devotion to Christ.

When we compare Galatians to the controversial chapter of Romans 9, we see that Paul's point is NOT to teach a deterministic view of election but rather a magnifying of God's sovereign choice of faith over works.

This is the view that John Piper would teach. In this episode we reply to this view and explain who the sheep of God truly are.

Are God's sheep the unconditionally elect of Calvinism? John 6 says that it is those who "hear" and "learn" from the Father that belong to Him and will come to Jesus. When we consider this and the examples of Abraham in the gospel of John, it brings light and clarity to who God's sheep really are.

John Piper claims that before we believed, while we were still in our sin and rebellion and had not turned to God in faith and repentance, at this time we "belonged" to God. This claim gives us salvation "outside of Christ."
