I would say that our Theology needs to be well-rounded. What is your opinion about Compatibalism?
Compatibalism is inconsequential in Calvinism, for God decreed every thought and action, every whatsoever comes to pass before the world was made; therefore it means absolutely nothing because at the head of it all, God is ordering it all beforehand. IMO, it is a kinder and gentler approach for the Calvinist who cannot reconcile Calvin's doctrine by necessity has God creating sin, ordering sin, and dictating sin. It helps to sell the doctrine of Calvin.

God bless

It is actually essential to Calvinism. It's a successful attempt to reconcile the attributes of God with the human will and choice.

Would you say Synergism is Compatibalism, or that Compatibalism and Synergism are the same thing? If so, Compatibalism is true even in Calvinism...

When God and Abraham were negotiating over how many Righteous People could be found in Sodom, to save that city; this was an example of Compatibalism, right?
