Calvinists also do not like to be accused of believing in Fatalism which by definition is "the philosophical doctrine holding that all events are predestined to happen and that human beings cannot therefore change their destinies" even though they themselves believe that all events are predestined to happen and that human beings cannot therefore change their destinies. Well many Calvinists seem to have an idea that it is fatalism when "the gods do it" but it is not fatalism when "God does it." How that becomes non-fatalistic is anyone's guess. "God from all eternity did, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin... (Westminster Confession, Of God's Eternal Decree, III.1). Got some interesting questions ferya: 1. Did God, before creation, ordain Catholic priests to abuse little boys? 2. If God ordained this heinous sin, could the Catholic priests have done otherwise? 3. If God ordained this heinous sin to happen, and this heinous sin had to happen because God ordained it to happen, how is God not the author of sin?
