Thus far, this forum has presented why many see Calvinism as unbiblical. But not one word has been offered up to shred Arminianism. So lets take a look at the other relic of the dark ages. First, Arminianism was correct in that it thought many of the points of Calvinism missed the mark. 1) Election is based on God crediting our faith as righteousness, so it is Conditional rather than Unconditional. 2) Fallen men have the ability to respond appropriately to the gospel. This view is correct but for the wrong reason. Arminianism accepts Total Spiritual Inability as biblical, but overcomes the supposed inability with "prevenient grace" which somehow restores fallen mankind such that we can respond to the gospel. Two wrongs do not make a right. 3) Once born anew (by the power of God) men cannot undo (by the power of men.) Some Arminians accept this view, those that do not are wrong. 4) Christ died for all mankind, becoming the propitiation or means of salvation for the whole world. Thus, when compared with Calvinism, Arminianism is a stellar doctrine. So where do they go wrong? 1) First, many wrongly believe Ephesians 1:4 refers to an individual election for salvation, based on foreseen faith. Again this is the wrong fix (foreseen faith) to the problem. The right fix is to understand Ephesians 1:4 is referring to a corporate election, i.e. when God choose His Redeemer individually He choose corporately those His Redeemer would redeem, hence He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world. Once we accept this view, then all the verses that actually speak of our individual election conditioned on existing faith make sense. 2 Thessalonians 2:13, James 2:5, 1 Corinthians 1:26-30 and 1 Peter 2:9-10. 2) Many Arminians accept that Fallen man has no ability to understand any of the things of the Spirit of God, based on 1 Corinthians 2:14, but that is not what the verse says in context. Natural men of flesh can understand the milk, 1 Corinthians 3:1-2. But as I said, when compared with Calvinism, it comes way closer to biblical truth.
