i think i understand most, if not at all, of the Calvinist doctrines, together with the small differences among calvinists as i've read here. this is not to argue in the usual way to say that you are biblically wrong, but just to clarify a matter. here it is: when a child is born, he is imputed of the sin of Adam, and therefore was condemned without any respect of his volition. God sovereignly imputed the child with Adam's sin. being condemned, the child also acquired the sin nature, which, to you, makes him incapable of receiving Christ, and gets him to sin more. so then he has acquired this nature to sin without his choice of it. therefore, nowhere does an individual's volition enter when it comes to his condemnation, nor in being incapable of accepting God's salvation. and if he happens to be a non-elect, he never has a chance to get saved. worse, he was helplessly condemned by means which is not his own, nor due to his volition. with this, i will not ask you whether it is love, just, nor righteous for God. i already know what you will say here. but i just want to clear this up with you: is a non-elect responsible for his own condemnation? or was he made responsible? i know he is guilty, but is he guilty because of what he did? or because of what another one did? did his volition played a role for him to get condemned? or was he sovereignly designed by God to get condemned without any respect for his volition? if you say you are a double predestinarian, then that explains everything. but if you are not, then my question stands.
