An Outline of the FACTS of Arminianism vs. The TULIP of Calvinism | Society of Evangelical Arminians

Linked is a succinct comparison of two Biblical positions that are frequently held in contrast to each other. Those two positions are Arminianism and Calvinism. Calvinism is the rage these days for which I am a little grateful. As it has been so popular there has been a plethora of articles, sermons, mp3's, etc. on the topic. As I have listened to them, they have helped me clarify that I am really a classical Arminian and not the least bit a Calvinist.

If the whole discussion of the two positions is murky for you, give the linked article above a quick read. It's succinct.

So how is it that a human can say no to God if God wants the human to do something?

If all creation is subject to God's Divine Law and all knowledge flows out of his Divine Law and all truth is defined by Divine Law, where does the believer's faith come from? Would it not have to something created by God, made know by God and given to the saved? So where does the Arminian believers faith come from? Is it an artifact in the creation that is not a product of God's creative work? This would seem to be the Arminian position? Do humans actually create their own faith? Interesting. Something in the creation that is not a product of God's Divine Law but separate from it and not subject to God's Divine Law. Thus, God's mighty work via his Divine Law plus another item not created or in the control of God produces salvation. Interesting.

It appears you have a lot of questions about Arminianism and don't understand it well. I'm so glad to see your interest.

I encourage you to give classical Arminianism a full investigation. You might be surprised at what Arminians believe.

Dose God always choose to give a person free will to individuals to choose him? That is a rather bold statement like, "The supernatural gifts are not part of the church today." A very bold statement about God and his free will. Perhaps, if God has ultimate free will he will choose to elect some and allow other the freedom to choose?

Sounds like you are offering a both/and option instead of either Calvinism or Arminianism.
