Typical Calvinist Responses To Theological Disagreement.

It's interesting to see what happens when someone publicly disagrees with Calvinist theology. You can always count on one or all of the following responses from Calvinists in regard to any theological disagreement with them:

1. You don't understand Calvinism. 
Answer: Yes we do. Maybe it's you who doesn't understand Calvinism.

2. You're being divisive. 
Answer: Just because we don't agree with your theology doesn't mean we're divisive.

3. You have a faulty understanding of scripture.
Answer: Now who's being divisive?

4. Non-Calvinists are semi-pelagian.
Answer: I know of no non-Calvinist who believes that one can come to Christ without the aid and influence of the Holy Spirit.

5. Non-Calvinists believe the "Sinner's Prayer" saves them. 
Answer: No one believes that the "Sinner's Prayer" saves anyone. Salvation is through Christ alone. The "Sinner's Prayer" is one way of asking Christ for salvation.
