    What in the world are you even responding to? This is so full of straw men, that it has virtually no resemblance to any position at all. For instance, to say that God's choice is not based on...

  3. An Assumption

    Alex A., I completely agree with your argumentation so far. I'm just going to point out that you are assuming that Winman's position is a belief that God knows the future. While he uses the word...

    The ad-homs of the opening post are noted. The reality is that those of a Calvinist persuasion deal with the questions differently, and thus they have different answers to the questions. Dealing...

    Thanks JDS for voicing your thoughts. Unfortunately, the thread title states that this question is geared for the Arminian, so an anti-Calvinist rant is off topic. However, feel free to post your...

    Winman states that he believes in foreknowledge. He even asks the question, "How could it be afterknowledge if God knew my choice before I was even born?" Winman has already answered this question....
  10. Further Clarification

    Winman asks again, "Why warn someone who has no ability to obey or disobey?" My response has continually been that the person is warned because that warning is a necessary means to accomplish God's...
  11. Turning A Blind Eye

    In the last post, I presented 6 points with the seventh speaking toward the Bible's affirmation of a position contrary to yours. Your response to the Bible was that I made a nice speech. Hence, it...

    Thank you for quoting verse 12 for all to see. Where does Matthew 7:12 say "eye for an eye"? You seem to have forgotten to deal with the issue.

    I'll quote if for you again. "Therefore all...
