I have a friend who got addicted to drugs and alcohol. He lost most of everything he owned and ruined most every relationship he had. Some of his friends intervened and told him he had to get help. We recommend a good clinic in the area, but in pride he refused he even needed help. Once we showed him what his sin had done to his life and family in a firm but loving manner his pride began to falter and humility wrought by the sheer magnitude of his failure began to take root. He reluctantly agreed to check himself into the clinic after much persuading on our part. After about 6 months he is out and clean. But I noticed the other day when he was giving his testimony before the church that he was taking all the glory for himself. He had the audacity to say, "I thank God for my friends who convinced me to get help. If not for their love and intervention in my life I would probably be dead right not. I would not be standing here now if they didn't love me and persuade me to get help." How dare HE! He actually thinks his willingness to get help when we confronted him in his sin was his choice! He actually seem to believe the humility wrought by his failure was his own? He is removing all the glory and credit from his friends by suggesting that he even had a choice in the matter!!! What a prideful, self-centered, glory hog! Just wanted to present the accusation that Calvinists make toward non-Calvinists from another perspective.
