Ok, here is the truth, I my mind has been over-loaded by the Calvinist theological viewpoint.. As I set out and study scripture, from the Reformed theolgoical paradime unfortunatley, I keep running into verses that exalt free-will and human responsibility.. I am about to start a new trend in my Bible, verses with Calvinistic leanings marking in red, and ones with Arminiast leanings in green, and I am one confused Christian. I am convinced that God's sovreignty is clearly taught in the Scripture, but how far does His sovreignty extend? I am convinced that free-will is taught, how can I reconcile these two? I have been such an adamant Calvinist since discovering the great teachings of R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur, but I am beginning to rethink my position. I am limited in money, but I can probably spend 15 dollars on a good book if it will clear this up for me. God Bless, Andy P.S. One short contradiction could be John 6:44 "No man can come to me, except the father which sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." and that one verse in James that says "Draw nigh unto God, AND he will draw nigh unto you." Notice the and, it almost indicates, THEN. That we have to draw nigh unto God, seems to be obviously implied in that verse, then in John it says " We cant draw nigh to him." Is Calvinism just too high to understand?
