…the natural man who deems the things of the Spirit foolish do so by their own free moral choice, not by compatibilistic compulsion imposed by Calvinistic philosophy
One simply cannot conveniently deemphasize or elide the micro-deterministic nature of Calvinism
…God’s revelation to man does in fact declare that He sincerely desires that every individual believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved, which is the unabashed banner of those who reject Calvinism…
I had always been taught that God created the world and it was good, but that Adam and Eve sinned and their posterity inherited a sinful nature and thus were separated from God.
I would be interested to explore how a Calvinist who is not a supralapsarian would maintain their perspective of the Lamb’s Book of Life being completed by God unconditionally before the foundation of the world.
