Long story short, after a series of theology lectures, some students stated that they believed that God has done all He's going to do relative to salvation, He now awaits our decision, and passively allows those to be made apart from any sovereign or providential act. This struck me as a bit of deism, and the more I think of it, the more I think that could be a possibility. I've heard similar worldviews espoused here and elsewhere by Arminians. So I ask humbly and not to malign my Arminian brothers: is Arminianism a form of Deism? I personally can argue it either way, but I've heard many argue it where they honestly paint themselves into a Deistic corner. I'm interested in how my Arminian brothers feel as well as my Calvinist brothers.
