That is absolutely true, and I’ve seen it first-hand. Young Christians become engulfed and overwhelmed in an aggressive campaign with an overt “us vs. them” approach, which is obviously cultic in nature.
I liked the commentary on Ephesians 1. They stated:
Exactly. However, I think that the following quote could be revised somewhat, in which they’ve stated:
However, Paul is more careful to connect election & predestination to their rightful home “in Christ,” as being blessings for those in Christ, and yet the aforementioned quote is missing such a reference. The significance is because Calvinists view election as a vehicle to become “in Christ,” whereas with Arminians, election is the vehicle which takes those “in Christ” to where He wants to bless them (i.e. an election to holiness, a predestined adoption to sonship, redemption through Christ's blood, revelation of mysteries, an inheritance, the Indwelling, ect.).
I liked this quote:
Indeed, as focus is shifted from what we get from the cross, to what “sovereignly” brought us to the cross in the first place, making such a thing into the gospel behind the gospel. In this way, the real gospel is the search for a special relationship hidden in the Father. Calvinists don’t realize the peril in that, and the obvious fingerprints of who is behind it.
Here is another good quote:
Exactly. Instead of looking outwardly to the cross (like the thief on the cross), focus is then shifted inwardly to a Lordship salvation, in which the individual has the right stuff, and raises a concern of Christianized Judaism.
