I remember seeing a statement to this effect somewhere on this forum. I tried to search for it but could not find it. I don't remember who said it, but unbeknownst to that person, this phrase was to me the briefest and most profound representation of the main difference between Calvinism and Arminianism. Is grace "given" or is it "offered"? Is grace defined in the act of Jesus' death on the Cross, or is it defined in the act of a person receiving the free gift? The difference may seem subtle, yet distinguishable. Is the death of Christ grace, or is the "faith" of the believer grace?
