I have an honest question for those Calvinists and non-Calvinists who regularly debate their position on this board. Why all the vitriol and personal attacks? Why? I don't want to name names, but it comes from both sides. Why all the "gotcha" lines, as though you just shut up your opponent once and for all when you know full well that they are going to "gotcha" back? Does this sort of behavior glorify God? Is it really contending for the truth or is it a personal ax to grind? Perhaps others have raised this question in the past but I cannot find anything on the topic. Why?
