A question for Calvinists: Why does the Bible talk about God's patience and longsuffering in regard to salvation? Within the Calvinistic system, what is God waiting on? If he is the one who effectually calls isn't He just waiting on Himself to do the work? How do you reconcile that with His being patient and longsuffering with us? If it is truly "all of God" what exaclty is he waiting on?
