HYPER-CALVINIST OR CALVINIST?

Hyper-Calvinist or Calvinist; it is a distinction without a difference.

If you embrace the doctrines of Unconditional Election and Perseverance of the Saints you are a Calvinist; it makes little difference whether you are hyper or not.

Unconditional Election Defined: God chooses individual for salvation before they are born. God gives faith to those He selects so they might believe and be saved.

Perseverance of the Saints Defined: All of those whom God has unconditionally selected for salvation can never be lost, they cannot fall from grace. They are once saved always saved.

It does not make any difference what religious doctrinal nuances or intellectual gymnastics are stated or practiced. If you believe in Unconditional Election and Perseverance of the Saints you are a Calvinist. Hyper-Calvinist or Calvinist; it is a distinction without a difference.
