The real issue is found in the source that communicates "the word of God." There is a distinct difference between the word of God spoken in Genesis 1:3 which Paul parallels with how the word of God must be spoken in the salvation of the elect (2 Cor. 4:6), versus the word of God found in ink on paper and/or spoken by a finite source (men) to men. The "power" is not found in finite souces but only in the infinite source. There can be no possible misunderstanding of the direct analogy between Genesis 1:3 and Paul's direct application in 2 Cor. 4:6 to the salvation of God's elect as there were no INSTRUMENTAL MEANS in Genesis 1:3 just as there can be no instrumental means operating WITHIN the heart of men of which Paul speaks of in that text. Arminians do not make this distinction although the Scripture clearly distinguish between the two. Only by denying this distinction does Arminism exists.
