The author is decidedly against creeds in general, and Calvinism in particular. He says that if God is misrepresented to Christians, they will not be “transformed in the renewing of their minds” to be like Christ, but to be like whatever they are unbiblically instructed about Him. They will reflect men, and not Christ.
He holds to the final salvation of all the Jews, both the living and the dead, Christ's personal return and reign, two resurrections, the judgment, immortality as a gift through Christ and not as an endowment through Adam, election as referring not to mere salvation but to a kingliness of glory in the eternal life. He lays great stress on Christ's preaching to the spirits in prison.
