              Sonnet 39 – Calvinism

For God so loved the world, He gave His son –
Yet Calvin taught the world’s not everyone.
Desire of God – salvation for all men –
But Calvinists reduce it yet again.
Christ died and tasted death for ev’ry man;
That cannot be, says Calvin’s loyal clan.
They claim that God is somehow glorified
By damning all who came from Adam’s side,
And giving them a nature so they’d sin,
And holding them accountable for when
They did just that, the deeds they couldn’t stop –
For they were liquored up by heaven’s cop.  

They do not teach a just and righteous God.
In Judgment, they must face His wrathful rod.
