I saw on a recent thread the charge that Calvinists must act like Arminians to evangelize because Calvinism doesn't work. I recall a similar claim on the Four Views book on predestination and free will. The charge is a straw man. If you grant predestination, you also must grant that you and me are predestined to be who we are. We act like the people we are. By it's very nature, predestination is not something you can be aware of happening. If Jones is among the Elect, then the means of Jones' conversion has been predestined. Who knows? That just might be me! I'm not acting like an Arminian when I go soul-winning. BTW, I'm not a dyed in the wool Calvinist. But passages like Eph. 1-2 and Rom. 8-11 force me to accept predestination. But I love my Arminian brothers and sisters who love my Lord. You guys aren't the bad guys.
