Both Calvinists and Arminians recognize that God our Savior "... desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." I Tim. 2:4. But obviously all people are NOT saved. The common solution by Calvinists is that verses such as this speak of God's revealed will-- but not His hidden will. Arminians object to this and claim that the reason all men are not saved is because God wills to preserve the free will of man more than He desires for all to be saved. While Calvinists say that God's MAIN objective is the preservation of His own glory, Arminians insist that God's MAIN objective is the preservation of man's free will. That, boys and girls, is the real difference between Calvinism & Arminianism. One exalts the glory of God, the other exalts the free will of man. One is God-centered, the other man-centered.
