IMO, Arminians, because they don't understand the Calvinist's paradigm, often critique Calvinism at the wrong points. E.g., on election. Surely one who believes God's word cannot deny that there is something about election. "Corporate election" is an attempt to explain away Eph. 1, that, IMO, misses the mark quite badly. Much better is the argument based on I Pet. 1 that election is 'based on the foreknowledge of God,' i.e., God elected those He knew would believe if given the chance. I think that point falls apart upon closer inspection, but it is a much better argument. Where I am on shaky ground is over the state of the non-elect. Arminians should push this point and hopefully enlighten us. Why didn't God choose Jones? Yes, it's true that God is not morally obligated to save anyone. That's not the point. I'm not morally obligated to help anyone whose problems are caused by his own sinfulness--which includes 90% of all human problems. But what does it say of my character if I refuse to help someone I could have helped. We need to put a name and a face on this. People aren't things or groups. They are individuals. they are somebody's son, brother, daughter, sister, mother, or father. If Jesus commanded me to love my enemies, does God do less? Do I have more compassion than God? It deeply bothers me to consider that some are lost, but it's ok with God?
