For every effect there is said to be a cause. If one is saved there must be a cause. If God is the sole cause, and no conditions are in effect, God must of necessity be the sole cause of salvation. If God is the sole cause of salvation, man plays no other part than a lucky recipient of salvation, and those that are lost are lost for a lack of being chosen to salvation. If God is the sole cause of salvation, He of necessity would be the sole cause of those not receiving salvation. In any event, logic demands that double predestination rules, just as Calvin clearly understood it to be so. The end of the argument that God is the sole cause of salvation and man plays absolutely no part, and the denial of any and all conditions set forth to enable one to be in a position to accept salvation, has no logical ends other than deterministic fatalism and double predestiantion. If there are no conditions for man to fulfill, all is determined by God and that from eternity, some to salvation and others to damnation. What is amazing to me is for some to deny conditions of salvation yet cry foul when the label of determinism is placed upon their theological system. If in fact God has made the determination of who will be saved apart from any and all conditions, determinism is inescapable. All is indeed determined by God when conditions to salvation are denied. It is further amazing to me that some that cry “It is not by our will” that we are saved, denying all conditions, then tell us that man must 'accept' salvation in order to receive it. Pray tell us what acceptance is other than an act of the will??? In one breath they say there are no conditions to salvation and then in the very next breath make an act of the will a condition to receiving. So much for denying conditions to salvation.
