Reformed Theology teaches immorality
Genesis 4:7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.
We see here God is telling Cain if he does what is right he will be accepted. Right here meaning righteousness, and that he should rule or master sin.
”Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;” (1 John 3:7
But the Reformed doctrine of Total Depravity denies this and destroys what God said to Cain here. Not only does it destroy this truth it also makes God out to be a liar or a trickster. Because according to total depravity man (even saved) cannot rule over sin in this life. They use Romans 7 as proof for this. Before I show that Romans 7 does not mean this I will list a few passages that show Total Depravity is unbiblical.
CP = Compare passage.
(CP De 30:15 20; 2Chr 15:2; Isa 1:16 20; 45:22; 55:6 7; Jer 3:12 13; 4:1 4; Eze 18:20 32; 33:10 20; Hos 10:12; Joel 2:12 14; Amos 5:4 9; Zeph 2:1 3; Zech 1:3 6; Mal 3:7; Mt 3:1 8; 4:17; Mk 1:14 15; 6:12; Lu 3:2 9; 13:2 5; Jn 3:3; 6:27 29; 8:30 31; Ac 2:38 39; 3:19 26; 16:30 31; 17:24 31; 26:13 20).
Okay Romans 7 cannot mean Christians have 2 natures or that we will always be a slave to sin or the old man. Because Paul clearly shows us in Romans 6 we have been made free from sin and unrighteousness, and Jesus tells us those who commit sin are slaves to sin, and John tells us those who commit sin are of the Devil. So what does Romans 7 mean? Paul (using first person), in Romans 7, is describing the life of a sinner whose conscience is disturbed (Rom. 7:16). He is showing what happens when a sinner’s mind encounters the law of God and is convicted by it. Paul tells us in Rom. 8:6 “to be carnally minded is death” but the man in Romans 7 said, “I am carnal, sold under sin” (Rom. 7:14). Therefore, the man in Romans 7 was not saved, did not have the Holy Spirit and was not on the narrow path to the Kingdom.
This is not the only way Reformed Theology teaches immorality or a licence to sin. They also believe in the doctrine of Eternal Security and make the clear warnings in the scripture, to US, not to fall away or make shipwreck of our faith. You can easily find many Reformers teaching a Christian can commit adultery and murder and still be on the road to the Kingdom! This is heresy, this is blasphemous, this is against the pure and Holy written word of God. I will finish with a passage that shows even Paul knew he could end up on the road to hell.
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway” (1 Cor. 9:27).
