Jesus, Name Above All Names

Is God The Author Of Sin?

Here is a statement of doctrine held by many Calvinist:

The Westminster Confession of Faith states, “God has predestined and foreordained some men and angels to everlasting life out of His free grace and love without any foresight of faith or works in man or perseverance in either of them, and others are foreordained to everlasting death and the number of either is so certain and definite that it cannot be increased or diminished.” (Chap. III, art. 3,4 &5; Chap. X, art. 2).

The Confession of Faith of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. says, “God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass … By the decree of God, for the manifestation of his glory, some men and angels are predestined unto life, and others foreordained to everlasting death. These angels and men, thus predestinated and foreordained, are particularly and unchangeably designed; and their number is so certain and definite it cannot be either increased or diminished.” (Chap. III)

Calvin’s Institutes states, “All are not created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestinated to life or to death.”

It is impossible for God to predestinate and damn angels and men because of their sin and he is not the creator of sin whereby they are predestinated damned.

Predestination demands God is the author of sin!

Did God damn angels and men because he created them sinners? If so, God was the author of their sin since they had no control over how they were created.
Did God make it impossible for some angels and men to be saved because he created them to be sinners so they would be worthy of his wrath and eternal judgment? If so, God is the author and creator of their sinful condition.

In the partial Calvary and limited grace heresy of three-god John Calvin (accomplice in buring Michael Servetus at the stake), Jesus did not love the whole world. He loved only those whom God the Father did not create and predestinate to be sinners.

Is this sound doctrine?

God is not the author of sin. Predestination as taught by John Calvin is a heresy.
