Recently a thread was started in an attempt to imply that Calvinists have an exalted (“higher”) view of man than those who hold to non-Calvinist/Arminian theologies. Here is the link for that thread: http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=76148 In addition a thread was started, falsely declaring Calvinist's don’t own up or take responsibility as Arminian (and assuming non-Calvinists) do. Here is the link to this thread: http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=75616&highlight=addiction Each thread failed to accomplish their objectives, yet nonetheless these remarks were made. The thread stating Calvinist's have an exalted (“higher”) view of man (than non-Calvinist's/Arminians) was shot down and found by several to be faulty in its premise. Nothing in the thread proved the point of the OP, but was rather shown to be a desperate grasp to discredit Calvinism, or, at the least, its attempt to prove that Calvinist's hold an exalted view of man failed. But, the accusations were made. While each attempt was found to be blatantly false, said were additionally recognized as merely a desperate attempt to place Calvinism in the stead of Arminian and non-Calvinist theology. This attempt didn't succeed, and all the while the latter two theologies, Arminianism and non-Calvinist theologies remain well recognized as having both an unbiblical and inflated view of man. Now, let’s consider the LILAC of the non-Calvinists, those who embrace Arminian theologies, and of those who believe the same points who hold another unnamed theology. The exaltation of man shown in each point below (LILAC) is representative of the doctrine of both Arminian and non-Calvinist theologies. These teachings seek to supplant Sovereignty by going the route of freewill, or, via the power of the “choice” of man. Please show how LILAC concisely represents the views of Arminian and non-Calvinist theologies, while at the same time exalting man to an unbiblical precedent. I look forward to your comments. Here is an acrostic representing Arminian, non-cal, and other unnamed theologies: L - Limited Depravity I - I elect God L - Limitless Atonement A – Arrestable* Grace C - Carnal Security *”arrestable” is a term used by some who hold to Arminian or non-Calvinist theologies to complete this acrostic. PLEASE, LET’S KEEP THIS DISCUSSION CIVIL. THANKS.
