Calvinists say we are born again first and then enabled to believe; however, the scriptures say we believe first, and then given the Holy Spirit, then we are born again. I have some questions for Calvinists. I sincerely hope that someone here can answer my questions. Calvinists believe that no one can accept God on their own. They believe that God causes people to believe by the Holy Spirit. Apostle Paul patiently and with detail explained how Jesus saves us, so why does Paul not say anything about the Holy Spirit causing us to believe. Question one: Calvinists believe that no one can accept God on their own. Which scripture or scriptures say that? Explain why it does not say that anywhere in the Bible. Read Galatians 3:2. In Galatians 3:2 we read that Paul asks the Galatians if they received the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? Question 2: Why did Paul not say something like 'I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by God giving you His Spirit so that you can believe?’ Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. Question 3: In Romans 10:17, why does Paul not say something different like, 'Consequently, faith comes from the Holy Spirit enabling you to believe, and therefore allowing you to accept the message'? 1 Thessalonians 2:13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe. Question 4: Why did Paul not say '...which is at work in you who were enabled to believe'? I mean, Paul is taking time to explain carefully to the Thessalonians, so why not explain more adequately. Hebrews 4:2 For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith. Question five: Why in Hebrews 4:2 did Paul not say something like, 'For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard were not enabled to have faith to believe it'? In Romans 5:1-2 we are told "...we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. We have gained access by faith...there is no mention of the access in which Calvinism teaches, and that is having access by the Holy Spirit. Calvinism as a whole adds to Romans 5:1-2. Romans 5:1-2 is complete and accurate on how we get access to grace. Paul is revealing something extremely important here; he is explaining how we get access. Paul is explaining how we get access, and he does not say we get access the way Calvinists say, and that is by the Holy Spirit enabling us to have faith. If you know Calvinism, then you know that Calvinists believe we can only have access to grace by faith that God has enabled to believers by the Holy Spirit. Again, this scripture has Paul explaining how believers get access. In addition, nowhere does it say through enabling of the Holy Spirit. Paul's explanation is accurate and complete. To say otherwise would be to distrust what Paul is saying.
