I am very concerned with theological precision. I come across a lot of quite sloppy theological argument and assertion so I try to promote more robust theologizing at Veritas.
I class myself neither as a Calvinist nor an Arminian. I know some folks say that one is either one or the other, but (again) I find their reasoning rather slipshod. So I call myself a “Sovereigntist.” The main tenet is that “God’s decision always precedes man’s decision.” I think I can defend that view pretty well.
Being neither Calvinist nor Arminian I like to read books and articles from both sides (though my reading in Reformed literature outweighs reading in Arminian writings). I recently read this piece in which the practical problem of balancing the supposed “two wills of God” was highlighted. The post is titled: Calvinists on Hell and the Fate of Everyone who Ever Lives.
I tend to think adopting a determined Calvinist or Arminian position may foster a reluctance to see the opposing position’s argument. Here is a pretty good one from an Arminian perspective. See what you think.
