ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

John Calvin Rejects the Doctrine of the Free Offer of the Gospel

While God foresees that this will be the result, he purposely sends his prophets to them, that he may involve the reprobate in severer condemnation, as is more fully explained by Isaiah, (Isaiah 6:10).  -- John Calvin

It is clear from both God's eternal decrees and from the revelation in Holy Scripture that God does NOT desire to save all who hear the Gospel, much less all men in the world.  The dialectical theology of the followers of Cornelius Van Til, including Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia and Westminster Seminary, California, is to be rejected.  All Scripture is in logical agreement.  Van Til, on the other hand, said that all Scripture is apparently contradictory.  (Isaiah 6:10).
