Jesus spoke clearly of the Calvinists in John chapter 8.
Pherr I. Cee wrote: The Calvinist faith is biblical because we special ones that God chose are just like the ones who were of Abraham's seed, and therefore we have the same spirit and the same father. Search the scriptures for yourself.
And the profesed believer who refuses children by way of abstinence or prevention methods believes he/she is hearing the Shepherd's voice and following him because that is what he wants for his/her life.
And so says the tens of thousands (millions/billions).

Christ states that in his dialogue. Therefore Christians WILL know the real Christ's voice and whether such commands, as you presented are from Him or not.
"...My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:..."
The problem is the tens of thousands (millions/billions?) of interpretations as to what this really means. Knock on any door in the U.S. and everyone is saved and hearing the voice of the Shepherd and following him.
The Shepherd says kill people, so the professed believer follows and kills. The Shepherd says don't kill, so the professed believer follows and does not kill. The Shepherd says shave your beard so the follower shaves his beard to look like a boy or a woman. The Shepherd says keep your beard so the follower keeps his beard and looks like a man.
The Shepherd says to women to wear a veil... Shepherd says don't wear a veil
The Shepherd says wash feet... Shepherd says don't wash feet
The Shepherd says obey the commandments of man... Shepherd says don't obey the commandments of man
The Shepherd says celebrate Jewish feasts ... Shepherd says don't
The Shepherd says keep a seventh day sabbath according to the pagan calendar... Shepherd says keep it according to the Hebrew calendar. Shepherd says don't try to keep a seventh day sabbath at all.
Shepherd says call him Jesus. Shepherd says call him Joshua. Shepherd says call him Yahuahshua. Shepherd says call him Yahushua. And on.......
Excellent. Glad someone else is aware of the racket. But the Jim Lincoln's and other die hard State Supremacist murder-mongers will still parrot the non-existent virus propaganda from their father.

Watch the documentary online "House of Numbers" and find out the money making racket Organized Medicine has made out of AIDS. Before it was called "AIDS" it was called GRID (Gay Related Immune Deficiency). ....Those who refuse Organized Medicine's protocols,Can you spell R-A-C-K-E-T? How about Murder by Medic
Amen and amen. Along with State Supremacy and the acts of terrorism conducted against believers and unbelievers in the name of their god. And of course we can thank Cotton Mather and others for bringing their vaccination witchcraft over and polluting the peoples.
get real wrote: Calvinism: A cancer on Christianity
It's a cancer that has metastasized into such evils as the Salem Witch Trials, Jim Crow, Apartheid, the "Screw everyone else, I got mine" mentality in the United States, and the modern Christian Right.
He should condemn worshipping idols and the setting up of the blasphemous State god on earth who determines good and evil by creating man-made commandments (laws, codes, ordinances, acts, whatever) and traditions who demands allegiance and obedience under the threat of violence. But of course something like that wouldn' t be allowed by the propaganda mouth (what the State saith), only homosexuality and abortion.
