Calvinism, Islam and the True Gospel.

I was reading in John 4 and saw this pattern. 

  15The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.” 16He said to her, “Go, call your husband and come here.” 17The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have correctly said, ‘I have no husband’; 18for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; this you have said truly.”19The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 20“Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.” 21Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem WILL YOU WORSHIP THE FATHER.

John 4: NASB

1) Jesus' rebuke: "22“You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

2) The correction:  23But an hour is coming, AND NOW IS, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; 

3) The Proclamation  for such people the Father SEEKS TO BE HIS WORSHIPERS. 

4) The Requirement:  24“God is spirit, and those who worship Him MUST WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.” 

5) Faith responds:  25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.” 

6) Jesus reveals himself:  26Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.

Jesus seeks people to be His worshipers. Jesus did not force this woman to be saved as Calvinists say. Jesus did not go though a meaningless song and dance, false discussion and then force the woman to believe in Him.  That is Islam. 

"No one has ever come to Calvinism without a false teacher. I know. I was both." warren 

Stay away from Reformed Churches. They go back to the disgusting Augustine. He prayed to the dead, killed a man because he disagreed, etc, etc. He  was so very ignorant of the scriptures.
