    Well, as I wrote in the OP, I do not agree with everything that is said in it. I think that his wording is a bit sloppy there, for he does not go into a discussion of various kinds of causes, those...

  6. A Slightly Longer Response

    Due to the fact that Davenoonan has been a better non-Calvinist poster, I have taken the rout of explaining things in a bit more detail. Davenoonan, I hope that you read this in a charitable sense. ...

    arbitrary statement, and since nothing external to your opinion was stated, your statement is the very definition of a subjective statement.

    Because it is almost always evaluated by the standard of "free will," "limited freedom," "libertarian freedom," "contra-causal free will," "self determinism," "agent causation," and "human autonomy"....

    If I may try to paraphrase what you are saying. . . It looks like the difference is a level of submission. In the second, the person sins; but it is at least called a sin. And there is at least a...

    So, so long as man stays within the moral bounds that God has placed upon him, then things are ok. Would you accept the "moral bounds" idea as being representative of what you mean when you say "the...

    A Moral Question

    Quite a few times in my life I have heard the phrase "playing God" with some other things attached to it. Often this phrase is signifying how a human being has gone beyond his bounds and decided to...

    Here, you are begging the question of contra-causal freedom and not allowing the text to speak otherwise. You have predetermined the text to only mean what contra-causal freedom dictates. Further,...

    And all the Calvinists and compatibilists are standing astounded at how thoroughly your imaginary straw men are attacked. Good job! To say that God ordains all things is not the same as to say that...

    Your confusion is clear. You have just denied what you just said no one disagrees with. You state, "allows a free agent to exist," which is not what sustaining is. And so it is clear that you hold...

    lol
    Do you realize that a predicate adjective modifying a noun and an adjective modifying a noun have essentially the same meaning? However, to give you the benefit of the doubt, what is the basic...

    So LCF is fine with God causing sin by determining an agent and his choosing faculty and choices to continue to exist as an undetermined entity? :confused:

    lol, did anyone else notice the verse omitted by Akriboo from the Ephesians passage? The same verse that says that God works all things after the counsel of His own will. :confused:

  24. Nature of Gifting

    That is how you are understanding the reception. In Calvinist theology, the compatibilist kind, repentance and faith are themselves (the actions themselves) the gift. The two are not mutually...
