Articles Alleged by the Calumniator to Be Taken from the Works of John Calvin

ARTICLE 1

God, By A Simple And Pure Act Of His Will, Created The Greatest Part Of The World For Destruction

ARTICLE 2

God Not Only Predestined To Damnation; But He Also Predestinated Adam To The Causes Of Damnation; Whose Fall He Not Only Foresaw, But Determined From Eternity By A Secret Decree, And Ordained That He Should Fall; And That This Might Come To Pass In His Time, He Set Forth The Apple, The Cause Of The Fall

ARTICLE 3

The Sins Which Are Committed, Are Committed Not Only By The Permission, But Also By The Will Of God. For It Is Frivolous To Make A Distinction Between The Permission and The Will Of God, So Far As Sin Is Concerned. Those Who Do So, Wish To Gain God’s Favor By Compliments And Adulation

That All The Crimes Which Any Man Commits, Are The Good And Just Works Of God

ARTICLE 5

That No Adultery, Theft, Or Homicide, Is Committed, Without The Will Of God Being Concerned. Ins. Cap. 14.Distinc.

ARTICLE 6

The Scripture Openly Testifies That Crimes Are Appointed, Not Merely By The Will, But By The Authority Of God

ARTICLE 7

What Men Do In Sinning, They Do By The Will Of God, Since Very Often The Will Of God Is Inconsistent With The Precept

ARTICLE 8

The Hardening Of Pharaoh, And Consequently His Obstinacy And Rebellion, Were The Work Of God, Even By The Testimony Of Moses, Who Ascribes The Whole Rebellion Of Pharaoh To God

ARTICLE 9

The Will Of God Is The Highest Cause Of The Hardening Of Man

ARTICLE 10

Satan Is A Liar By The Command Of God

ARTICLE 11

God Gives Will To Those Doing Wrong; He Even Suggests Wicked And Dishonorable Affections, Not Only Permissively But Efficaciously, And That For His Own Glory

ARTICLE 12

The Wicked, By Their Wickedness, Do God’s Work Rather Than Their Own

ARTICLE 13

We Sin Necessarily By The Design Of God, When We Sin By Our Own, Or By Chance

ARTICLE 14

The Wickedness Which Men Perpetrate By Their Own Volition, Proceeds Also From The Volition Of God
