- 5-Point Calvinism starts with the wrong view of God; it assumes, because of its theological methodology, that God is a God primarily defined by brute Creator power---which de-emphasizes God as Triune, relational, and personal.
- 5-Point Calvinism works with a faulty understanding of the God-world relation---this is related to point 1---since God is brute Creator, and untouched by his creation, God must relate to his creation through impersonal Law-like decrees.
- 5-Point Calvinism has a faulty view of the Incarnation. Meaning that Bezan Calvinism subordinates God's Son to these impersonal decrees, such that in the process the Son becomes an instrument of God's salvation thus de-emphasizing and detaching the person of the Son from the Person of the Father as the Son has now become determined and shaped to be what the decrees in and for creation have determined.
- 5-Point Calvinism misunderstands humanity because it fails to see Christ as the archetype of what humanity is. This has to do with Dortian Calvinism's embrace of a bipolar view of election wherein there is a disjunction between the elect and the reprobate; such that the former are somehow represented by the Son while the latter are not. What does this say about humanity in general?
- 5-Point Calvinism errs in the area of salvation since it believes that God is defined by brute-Law-like-Creator-Power, and thus God then provides a salvation that is shaped by Law keeping and performance instead of Love making and rest.
