    How many Arminians does it take to change a lightbulb.

    None, the lightbulb changes itself! :cool:

    What do you get when you cross a Jehovah's Witness and a consistent Calvinist?

    Someone who loves to knock on doors, but then doesn't know what to say.

    Two Arminians and a Calvinist are in an elevator. First Arminian says, "Whenever I'm in the Sears Tower elevator, I like to press a button and go to a floor just to prove how free I am." Second Arminian says, "Whenever I'm in the Sears Tower Elevator, I like to jump up and down to prove I have complete control over my body." Calvinist taps the two Arminians on the shoulder and says, "Scuse me guys, this is the John Hancock."

    :confused: I don't get it. Every major missions movement or revival in the past 500 years has been coupled with Calvinistic doctrine. Could you explain the joke?

    Hey, it's a joke.

    The thread is entitled "Calvinism/Arminianism humour," not "Let's start another fight."

    Whetstone, buddy, I think the cartoon was probably drawn by someone who holds to neither of the positions. I'm just guessing. But I think it is swayed in the favor of calvinists, ROFL, because the point was he was a rather unkind, uneducated, er . . . not too smart person. [​IMG]

    Hope no moderator's daughters are Arminian or they might be offended.
