The major mistake of Calvinism is taking the biblical teaching of man's inability to attain righteousness by law and applying it to the erroneous and unfounded belief that men must be equally unable to attain righteousness by faith.- Skandelon There are several weaknesses in the above statement. 1. "Inability to attain righteousness by law" misrepresents our view of inability because it deals with the consequence not the cause. The cause of inability is the state or condition of the fallen nature in its response to God. The State of enmity against God is the cause for inability to submit to the Law of God. 2. By redirecting the subject to the consequences rather than dealing with the cause of inability, Skandelon avoids the real problem which is the state or condition of the fallen nature which makes it impossible to seek or please God. 3. Total inability is the consequence of total depravity not vice versa. Fallen man cannot BECAUSE they will not and the reason they WILL NOT is due to the state or condition of the fallen nature. Seeking God by faith falls within the scope of "pleasing God" (heb. 11:6) which Paul claims that Romans 8:7 is the cause for inability of all "in the flesh" to please God (Rom. 8:8). Therefore, Skandelon's statement is completely and entirely false as the state or condition of the fallen nature prevents both attaining righteousness by the law or seeking God by faith equally.
