If you have been following Jimmy Hall through this page, I apologize for subjecting you to the vile and profane way he argues with those he disagrees with. Although I respected his views on most issues, I disagreed with his extreme Calvinist positions, primarily, that since God foreknew all things, He is therefore the cause of all things, including evil and sin. I reject this proposition and have patiently attempted to persuade him otherwise to no avail. Jimmy Hall’s articles will no longer appear on this website.
It was unfortunate to witness the level of vitriol and utter nastiness that spewed out of the mouth of one who claims to be one of the elect! In my eagerness to promote your work, which for the most part was respectable, I unwittingly subjected my family, friends and loyal readers of this website to profanity, tantrums, and outright sinful anger! Yes, I called it sinful because you sir have sinned in your anger and hatred for those with which you disagree. Your ultra extreme Calvinist assertions allow for such behavior since you believe God pre-ordained you to say such contemptible things to whomever you feel warrants the wrath of God. You have declared in your heart who is elect and who isn’t. What right do you have to decide who God saves or doesn’t save? Do you not know that some of those you vilify might one day find peace with God through the grace of Jesus Christ? You who call yourself a theologian only know a few verses of Scripture in the book of Romans to justify your behavior. There are 65 more books of the Bible to consider. I suggest you begin at the beginning!

I took the liberty to quote some of Jimmy Hall's rants, mostly as personal messages to me on Facebook (which I still posess) and a couple from his personal Facebook page. These quotes not only shows how he interacts with people, it also shows his theology (Some names have been removed to protect the innocent).
“…the one negative aspect about Calvinism is that once we "get it,' it is so clear that we have little patience for those that do not... We Calvinist tend to act like "high-minded" Pharasees, but we at least admit it....... Another way to thimnk about it is that God has perfect foreknowledge and the worst case scenario knew where everyone was going before there births due to the chain reaction of events amid the universe and their lives...YET, did nothing to change anything, and let the people fall where they may.... Knowing where you are going before you are born is Predestination in itself, when you are all-powerful and can change it...... AGAIN, I doubt God expects us to even get into all these doctrines publicly, but I do!!!!! They cause as much division as good.... They should be discussed among believers pivately , I bet!!!! I just have to run my mouth and keyboard!!! The important thing is that anyone that believes is saved. We are simply examing the mechanism that leads them to salvation…” - Jimmy Hall, September 6, 2010 – Personal message to me on Facebook
"If He foresees it before it happens, He is predeterming it. (Romans 9 shows that he ACTIVELY orchestrates things according to ELECTION.) Remember, He setup the chain reactions of life, and nothing can happen any different than it does; even Einstein and Hawwking have demonstrated that. Even the slightest mental decisions and physical scratching or batting of eyes had to happen, or they would not have.... Evil was indirectly created by God, though He hates it. It serves its purpose. Even the evil human beings were created "for the day of destruction". - Jimmy Hall, September 12, 2010 – Personal message to me on Facebook
"Show me a Christian, apart from God/Jesus Himself, that doesn't occasionally cuss and scream and attack sin and sinners, and I will show you a totally dispassionate Christian, or a nonBeliever playing Christian." - Jimmy Hall, March 9, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“-------- is a stupid woman, I could care less about her. God knows her eternal fate, anyway, just as He did ours before birth... God uses me as much as a "condemner" as a "Convicter." We cannot, as humans, change who does or doesn't go to Heaven, but we can be used by God to condemn and convict. We are His tools... It is absurd to think that another human being's eternal fate is dependent upon you or me's coincidental actions or meetings with them.... We gather God's pre-planted crop, we do not find and pick a random one. No one's fate is determined by actions and interactions on earth; that is why I rarely worry about fusses with folks like -------. It simply does NOT matter.... If anyone's fate depended upon randomly hearing the Gospel, that would be TOTALLY UNFAIR....” - Jimmy Hall, March 9, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“Two stupid bitches named ------ and ------- are defending Obama and the flag with him on it, on your wall.. These worthless bitches deserve immediate punishment. I wish they were near me now. l would be used of God to chastise them.” - Jimmy Hall, April 7, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“I have never told a lie in my entire life…” - Jimmy Hall, May 14, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“God and I are NEVER wrong…” - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“I am thankful that all the apostles and Jesus agree with me, and the other great theologians throughout history...” - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“God hates throughout Scripture”. - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Personal message to me on Facebook
“When I see these evil people blaspheming God and His Biblical Doctrines, I often wish I had the power to kill them as God does! When we love God, we hate sin and sinners that hate His ways... God even kills His own that are disobedient. (Driscoll & Breshears explain this concept very clearly in DOCTRINE.) We should all join with David in hating enemies of God with a "perfect hatred." We have this false notion (from Ghandi) that we are to love the sinner but hate the sin. The Bible is actually exactly opposite of that. In God's love, He is righteous, and therefore must hate sin and sinners (nonElect).” - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Jimmy Hall’s personal Facebook page
“We tend to ignore that in Scripture God orders the slaughter of ALL women and children by the Israelites, and that even Jesus Himself will one day ride through on a white horse SLAUGHTERING non-believers with a sword..... God is JUST and RIGHTEOUS. Amen.” - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Jimmy Hall’s personal Facebook page
God hates many people. We are to be like Him, as His Chldlren. - Jimmy Hall, May 16, 2012 – Jimmy Hall’s personal Facebook page
