Proof for Calvinism! James White just spent a while on this in a recent video (skip the first 2/5 of the vid) but we can shorten his points to this: doesn't 1 John 5:1 indicate via grammar and syntax that a Christian believes as a result of their being born by God? The argument is that the same grammar and syntax is used in 1 John 2:29 & 4:7 and can only be taken by protestants that the participle (the one doing righteousness; the one loving) is a result of their being born by God. Here is the text in Greek 2:29: ...everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him. ...πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἐξ αὐτοῦ γεγέννηται 4:7: ...whoever loves has been born of God... ...πᾶς ὁ ἀγαπῶν ἐκ τοῦ Θεοῦ γεγέννηται... 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God... Πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων ὅτι ᾿Ιησοῦς ἐστιν ὁ Χριστὸς, ἐκ τοῦ Θεοῦ γεγέννηται... What say you, synergists???
