Bluegrass Calvinism

This here song is to be sung to the tune of
"I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow".
Now let's git with it!

(Lyrics by Eddie Eddings)

I believe in Limited Atonement
God chose His sheep from eternity.
I bid farewell to Arminian theories
They're just not right hermeneutical keys.

(They're just not right hermeneutical keys.)

For six long years I've taught that free will
Was what we all had every day.
Now I know that wills are taken captive
We can't escape - there's just no way.

[chorus] Outside of Christ - there ain't no way.

God's sovereign choice and His rich mercy
Brought me from death's captivity.
I would not choose to follow Jesus
I was too busy following me.

[chorus] He was entombed in his psyche.

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face you'll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
The Elect will meet on God's golden shore.

[chorus] The Elect will meet on God's golden shore.


  1. I just noticed, the center guy in the photo above looks an awful lot like the guy in the photo below!
    Coincidence or providence? You decide.

  2. This is a rough looking bunch of Calvinist crooners. Put black satin fidoras on these guys and replace the instruments with guns and you will have the Gambino family portrait!

  3. You should record this on a CD so I can refuse to play it.
