SavedByMercy made the following comment in another thread: Am I the only Calvinist who takes umbrage with this statement? I would start by asking what type of Arminian SBM is describing. I have found that a great many Synergists do not consider themselves Arminian (although they are) and bristle at being labeled such. They would say that man does not cooperate with God in salvation, even though that is exactly what their soteriology advocates. They maintain a sort of theological cognitive dissonance. A true Arminian (or better yet, a convinced Arminian) would take immense pride in saying that man cooperates with God in salvation. The true Arminian would probably hold to other doctrinal distinctives that would separate him from the modern Synergist we find today in broad evangelicalism, such as denying original sin and perseverance of the saints. However the modern day Arminian is actually a Synergist who enjoys a happy inconsistency within his synergistic belief system. To accuse them of being unbelievers is an incredible statement that displays hubris and ignorance.
