According to New Calvinists, You’re Not a New Creature—You’re Barabbas
New Calvinists have really good news for you; as a Christian, you are utterly wicked, unable to please God, totally depraved, and well, we are Barabbas because the New Calvinists say so. Apparently, that’s really good news. Because New Calvinists have to see the gospel in every verse of the Bible, the first video embellishes what the Bible conveys about Barabbas as stated in Naves Topical Bible: “A prisoner released by Pilate.” The video attempts to make its point with embellished information about what thoughts were going through Barabbas’ mind, how he was feeling, that he was scared, what the guards said to him, and what he supposedly knew about Christ and his followers, etc.
Question. Since the Holy Spirit was actually there, will He use such information to persuade if it isn’t true? I’m kinda thinkin’ He won’t.
The second video simply reminds us that we are Barabbas. It is said several different times by several different people in order to “speak life” into us.
