It you believe that God chose to save some and damned the rest to hell, then you believe that God is an unjust tyrant that delights in sending people to hell. By your words you will be condemned.
No did I say did.?

That said it God wants everyone.
The explain. How the incan and others who never heard the gospel got to heaven ?

God didn't even tell them .
 
I'm Jewish .

God rejected the Moabites until the seventh generation .
Usually males.he told Moses not to allow them into the congregation.

That was told before those generations .

He didn't call the Egyptians to believe or any Chaldean .he picked Abraham and Abraham responded .

Like Jethro bodine I am neither .can't reject a million dollars if it's not offered .

Some people have repentant hearts. It is these people that call on Christ to save them, Romans 10:13.

More than a million dollars are offered in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
The preaching of the Gospel and the preaching of the Cross are one and the same, 1 Cor 1:18

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Rom 1:15-16

15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

What does the Preaching of the Gospel, the Cross entails ? Its the scriptural setting forth of the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, Who He is, what He has done and for whom He did it. We cannot in Preaching the Gospel divide who Christ is, from what He did, and for whom, so its imperative to highlight the extent of His death, with its attending benefits. The Gospel should set forth what Christs death for them He died, what it actually achieved for them, that being eternal redemption Heb 9:12

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
By it being procured for us, it intends the application of it to us.

Meaning His redeeming death expiated our sins, purged them away Heb 1:3

3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

It for us rendered satisfaction to Gods Law and Justice, It destroys the power of the devil over us

It does away with the curse of the Law over us Gal 3:13

Applies to us the forgiveness of sins Eph 1:7

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Paul preached to some the forgiveness of sins, having been led to them by the providence of God Acts 13:38

Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
 
The short answer: no, Calvinism does not teach another gospel. It is still justification by grace alone, on the basis of Christ alone, through faith alone.

How can it be faith alone, if salvation is by grace through faith.

Makes no sense.

It certainly isn’t biblical, so yes the message of Calvinism is indeed another Gospel; a false message of salvation and is not biblical.


For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Ephesians 2:8


No such thing as “faith alone”.

I think you need to reread the verse you gave; it does not disagree with what I said. Calvinism does not teach another gospel.

Of course Calvinism is another Gospel.

Paul did not teach predestination. He taught salvation by Grace (God's goodness) through faith, Ephesians 2:8. The word predestination is not related to anyone's salvation. If it was the Bible would be full of it, there is nothing. The word "predestination" only appears in the bible four times. Words like "Faith" and "believe" appear in the Bible hundreds of times.
 
Of course Calvinism is another Gospel.
Except that it isn't. They believe that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," but that we can be reconciled to God and be justified by grace alone, on the basis of Christ's death and resurrection alone, through faith alone. That is the gospel and that is what they teach.
