C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

What Makes A Calvinist Hyper?

Hint: It's not red Kool-Aid.

When it comes to Calvinism it appears to me that there are sometimes misconceptions from non-Calvinists. The tendency to group all Calvinists into one group or to claim all Calvinists hold certain beliefs which all may not appears to be easily found. Sometimes it is most likely due to a lack of understanding concerning Calvinism, sometimes it may be just a repeat of what one has been taught, and other times could actually just be the spreading of a serious dislike for the theology and/or the people.

If you find yourself condemning all Calvinists into one group called Hypers, honestly feel that you misunderstand Calvinism, or simply would like to know the difference between Calvinism and Hyper Calvinism, please consider reading the link below.

The topic was brought up on a forum I am a member of and here is a link that was posted:

A Primer on Hyper-Calvinism

Agree or disagree with the theology labeled as Calvinism, but don’t incorrectly lump all those that claim to hold to the Doctrines of Grace as Hypers.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
