Monica Dennington: Heretic and schismatic

It seems that Monica Dennington (a 'zealous Christian' Youtube apologist) has decided to attack the biblical doctrine of Calvinism in " calling them to repentance".

Lutheran (non-Calvinist) Chris Rosebrough has reviewed the severely divisive and heretical "message" by Arminian Monica Dennington in the video here:

This anti-Calvinist anti-biblical screed would be hilarious if the issues aren't so serious. So if we *follow* the teachings of John Calvin and hence worship John Calvin, doesn't that mean that those who are convinced of Dennington's position worship Monica Dennington and should be called "Denningtonites"?

Kirby Wallace has been working on a response here on his blog, which should be quite interesting to read. As of now, the following Scripture come to mind:

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. (1 Tim. 2:11-14)

Dennington stands in direct violation of the commands of Scripture in usurping the role of teacher/pastor. Regardless of the content of her message, her mere activity violates the Law of God. Coupled with her heretical system of Arminianism (or maybe it is Semi-Pelagianism), she is doubly in error. Since she takes it upon herself to "call Calvinists to repentance", she is hereby in turn called to repentance for her manifest defiance of Scripture in usurping the role of teacher/pastor and in teaching heresy.
