    I voted neither. See my thread on the Free Grace position for more clarity why.

    I really wanted to vote for 'I like traffic lights', because that makes far nore sense than attempting to box God and man into two, almost equally falacious, 'theological systems'. :rolleyes: Especially, when there is no material difference between the two, in the final analysis! :eek: :rolleyes:


    I, too, am part of the so-called 'Free Grace' position, the name of which is, by definition, redundant. [​IMG]

    I'm a biblical Christian. So I voted 'neither.'

    I had to vote neither because I am not a full Arminian, but I am not a Calvinist either. I am more Arminian than Calvinist, though.

    I'm either a 3-point Arminian or a 2-point Calvinist. Take your pick.

    I voted neither as I am a "Rician", if I am anything man-made.

    John R. Rice said at one time, something to the effect of "Why be a Calvinist or an Arminian? Why not be a Biblicist?" That statement has stuck with me through the years.

    Where Calvinism agrees with the Bible I am on board and where Amininism agrees with the Bible I am on board.

    How come if everybody picked "neither" it is only 50% on the poll??? I picked neither.

    I voted neither because I believe the Bible supports elements of both theological positions. In my approach towards evangelism I am much more Armenian.

    Picked "neither" as well. I really don't like traffic lights. I think they're a necessary evil.

    Amen to "Biblicism"! So I chose "Calvinist."

    I believe in following the scriptures, so I voted "Calvinist" because that position best represents biblical soteriology.

    I prefer to call it "fundamental" or "reformed" since I do not follow John Calvin; I follow the scriptures. But, the moniker stuck and it's here to stay I guess.

    Actually, I am a Calmeanist. I chose God before the foundation of the earth. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
