Is Salvation An Offer for Man to Choose? Jesse Morrell Refutes Calvinism

A Calvinist recently on Facebook said:

“Salvation is not an offer. So stop offering it.”

Talk about hindering and discouraging evangelism!

I responded:

Luke 14:17 uses “κεκλημένοις” which means to call or invite. 

John 1:12 uses “ἔλαβον” which means to take, to claim, to choose, to select.

2 Corinthians 5:20 uses “παρακαλοῦντος” which means to call and δεόμεθα which means to ask and beg.

Ephesians 2:8 uses “δῶρον” which means the offering of a gift or a present (something you present to someone).

All of this language signifies that salvation is an offer that man must claim, take, choose, accept, etc. Salvation is a gift that God “offers” which men can accept or refuse.

One Response to Is Salvation An Offer for Man to Choose? Jesse Morrell Refutes Calvinism

  1. ToeKnee BelowKnee says:

    The point of the fellows post was that men that deny the sovereignty of Gods choosing whom He saves is substituted by their offer given by men as if God will bend His will to save a particular soul because some random Arminian Pastard says “I’d like to give you the opportunity to accept Jesus”.
