Exposing the Twisted Terrible Tulip

Total Hereditary Depravity (Unable to Do Good Unless Forced)
I believe this point has a little bit of truth yet is not true in all accounts. I'll explain...
And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. Luke 6:33
The inability to do good is not hereditary. Sin is hereditary:
Sin entered into the world because of Adam's disobedience, all sin leads to death; and so death passed upon all men and so now sin is passed on to all men.
Romans 5:12
God allows people to become depravcd, rather, reprobate when they refuse to change and do what is right:
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:28-32
The two Christian belief systems (Reformed and NonReformed) will both agree that no one can earn their salvation, no one can get saved due to righteousness, and someone can only get saved when the Holy Spirit draws them to Jesus. However, nonReformed Protestant Christians believe that the call and drawing to Christ goes out to all people and due to mankind's sin inherited from Adam mankind must choose God or deny God by accepting or denying the call. This in no way negotiates nor overrules God's sovereignty. God saves. Man cannot save himself.

Unconditional election (predestination)
The above argument is countered at: 1 John 2:1-2; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Tim 2:3-6; John 3:16-17

NonCalvinistic Christians believe God has a preset process He wants to occur for those who get saved. This predestined plan goes beyond this life and secures a Believer in Heaven for eternity after death. This does not however promote nor include the carnal Christian who attempts to make salvation into a license to sin.

Limited atonement (Christ didn't die for all mankind)

On another note, we believe that God sent Jesus to pay the price for the sins of every man, woman, boy, and girl.
Though we try to embrace both Calvinism and Arminianism, Jeremy Brown and Loxley Ministriess are more Arminian. Jeremy Brown was raised Methodist and at age 12, began attending The Church of God which is also an Arminian style church. Other Arminian churches are Assemblies of God, Wesleyan, Arminian, Methodist, United Christian, Nazarene, Apostolic, Pentecostal, Full-Gospel, Non-Denominational, Holiness, Catholic, Church of England, as well as many Messianic denominations.
We believe that Christians have to be accountable and responsible for their actions.
We don't believe that our future sins are forgiven when we first accept Christ.
We believe that we must ask God for forgiveness when after the transgression occurs to be forgiven.
We believe that to remain forgiven, we must continually forgive.
We believe that salvation is conditional and continual, not a fixed state.
We believe that to remain saved, you must endure until the end by abiding in Christ and repenting when we fail.

We encourage you to study Justin Martyr, Jacob Arminius, and John and Charles Wesley's works.
