I've heard numerous "Calvinists" here argue that those of us who believe men do have a free choice in salvation undermine the sovereignty of God. However, many of these same people believe that Adam and Eve had a free choice while in the Garden. If mankind having a free choice in salvation undermines God's sovereignty, then why doesn't Adam and Eve's free choice likewise undermine his sovereignty? In fact, if we have the ability as believers to freely choose between one option or another, how does that not also undermine God's sovereignty? In other words, to acknowledge free choice of man in any circumstance while maintaining that God is Sovereign concedes the point that it IS possible for man to have a free choice in relation to his salvation while God maintains his sovereignty. So, why do some Calvinists insist we are undermining God's sovereignty in this way? Isn't that inconsistent?
