THE ULTIMATE ARMINIAN SLANDER:

 THERE ARE THOSE IN HELL WHOM GOD LOVES

By Rand Winburn

           The reader is admonished to do a personal survey of Christians: Are there those in Hell whom God loves? Invariably the response is a somber, 'Yes, there are.' Citing John 3: 16 and 2Peter 3:9, the Arminian slanders the holy name, attributes and promises of our God in one fell swoop. By presupposing God loves every human creature ever born and is earnestly desiring that person's salvation, if he or she would only make a 'free-will decision for Christ', the loose-lipped Arminian makes several key theological errors which demean our Lord immeasurably.

GOD IS A FAILURE

To believe that there are those in Hell whom God loves can only lead to one blasphemous conclusion: God has failed to save. He earnestly desired to save them, yet He failed to do so. Christ allegedly shed His blood for them, yet His blood failed to save. Christ's prayer on the cross: 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do,' was not answered. Christ prayed and died in vain for those whose end is Hell. So one must conclude.

GOD'S LOVE HAS FAILED

Despite the clear admonition by St. Paul, 'charity never faileth', Arminians would have us believe God's love has failed. The Savior failed to save those He loved. Such a Savior should be pitied, not worshiped.

GOD'S WISDOM HAS FAILED

Although all of God's works are known by Him from the end to the beginning, Arminians would like us to agree that there was nothing the Lord could have done to change the outcome of that poor unfortunate's eternal destiny of damnation. But that illogic speaks against the wisdom of God which is infinite, (Ps.147:5).

GOD'S POWER HAS FAILED

Although Jesus declares, 'All power is given to me in heaven and earth', and 'what is impossible with man is possible with God', Arminianism does not believe that attribute sufficient to save to the uttermost.

GOD'S GRACE HAS FAILED

If man is saved by grace, then God's grace has failed miserably. Grace and love go hand in hand. Those whom God loves, He gives grace. Those to whom He gives grace, He saves. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. How he merited that grace is not explained. The other billion humans on planet earth did not find grace. They found judgment and perished, while Noah and his family lived. Jacob also found grace in the eyes of the Lord. St. Paul explains he did not merit it. It was a decision made solely by the Lord prior to Jacob's birth and works, be they good or evil. Jacob was loved by God unconditionally prior to his making any alleged free-will decision for Christ, (Rom. 9:11-13). Such unconditional love resulted in his being given the gift of eternal life. Likewise, all the Elect are loved and unconditionally predestined to salvation. Conversely, Esau found no grace and was hated by God, a vessel prepared for destruction with Hell his eternal reward.
