  1. Where am I wrong with the non-Calvinist position?...

    Where am I wrong with the non-Calvinist position?
    (1) God is the creator, so He creates a universe.
    (2) God knows exactly what will play out in this universe, if He creates it.
    (3) God is not a...

    I placed in bold a portion of your comment; I also omitted some of the material as well.

    Neborg expressed this point to me as well, and the following link was my response. The follow up "counter"...

    Is it your goal to keep posting so that others will not look back and see that your statements are already answered? Is that your strategy now? I have already explained things, but here you are...

    You are over analyzing. However, both simpletruth and I have discussed this very issue. "will of decree" and "will of command" are just simply terminology signifying something. The problem comes...

    Again, I have already answered this question. Did you read what was written directly regarding Acts 4? Did you read how the same event can be both good and bad? Did you follow how they are in...

    No. Like a blacklight and a normal light that are both on. And since, there has been a rather clear distinction made, then it ceases to be a contradiction.

    Since, you seem to not want to follow the reasoning from Scripture, then I will have to keep the conversation on Scriptural terms. Scripture states in predestination language that the crucifixion...

    Do you believe that Acts 4 shows God determining the people's actions? The passage states, "to do," and then attaches this to predestination, and this is attached to the crucifixion.

    We could...

    Thanks Seth. You are correct that I am addressing things on the "transcendent" level, i.e. on the level in which God stands above His creation. And you are completely right to point out that God...

    So what you are saying is that without giving any reason, you are just going to dismiss the prior scriptural argument made, call it "predeterminism," when I was actually explaining the issue of...

    Who are you even addressing? First, I never wrote "God's determination of everything". You are falsely attributing words to me that I never wrote in that post. Second, your post does not even...

    As stated many times before, the choices ("to do") in Acts 4 were "predestined" by God, and the Bible really does not brush aside those choices like you have done. It is a both/and issue. The...
