That Incredible False Christian
Calvinists believe at least some of these interesting things about false professors and hypocrites:
The false professor is a servant of Christ and will be judged with Christ's other servants (Luke 19:22).
The false professor may have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ (John 12:42).
The false professor is a branch of the true vine and ought to abide in Christ (John 15:6).
The false professsor's body is a temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 6:19).
The false professor may be chastened of the Lord that he should not be judged of the world (1 Corinthians 11:32).
If the false professor is a young widow, her apostasy might have been prevented by her having married a second time (1 Tim 5:14).
The false professor may have been enlightened, tasted of the heavenly gift, have been a partaker of the Holy Ghost, tasted the good word of God and the powers of the world to come (Hebrews 6:4-5).
The false professor may have received the knowledge of the truth (Hebrews 10:26).
The false professor may have been sanctified by the blood of the covenant (Hebrews 10:29).
The false professor may be born-again (James 1:18, 2:14, 5:19-20).
The false professor may have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and known the way of righteousness (2 Peter 2:20-21).
The false professor has an advocate with the Father, who is Jesus Christ (1 John 2:1,3).
The false professor may be a brother to true Christians (1 John 3:15, 5:16).
Is there no chance at alll that some of these false professors might just be regenerate?
