    In considering the question what is more biblical, Calvinism or Arminianism I had a though. Since this forum is called Calvinism/Arminianism Forum the title clearly is presenting the argument that Calvinism is more biblical. Consider this, Calvinism in the title is comes first, not second but first. Clearly, it is not alphabetical so the only other reason that Calvinism came first is because the creator of this forum thinks that Calvinism is more biblical.

    Nice, Helium and Xenon. Random Fact: did you know that there was a Disney Channel Movie called Xenon: Girl of the 21st Century. Not really important to anything, just saying.

    Welcome to BB. It is nice to have another defender of the DoG on here, as they are scarcer than hen's teeth.

    Please go to the introductory forum and tell us a little about yourself, if you do not mind.

    It's a bet. Although I'm a bit concerned about the fact that you have a copy of "your best life now" :) Are you just trying to pawn it off on someone?

    I was thinking it would be good for a wobbly table leg.

    No. You use the table with the wobbly leg as kindling wood and the 'Your Best Life Now' start that kindling.

    Folks are welcome to address the OP, but juvenile caricatures are discouraged, as are "poor me, I'm the only faithful one left" remarks, which are manifestly untrue given their very vocal presence on the board.

    For the record: The title of the forum has nothing to do with what moderators/administrators believe. Calvinisim, as a systematic soteriology, predates Arminianism, and such topics are usually listed in that order. End of story. If you really want to debate, feel free, but cut out the fifth-grade antics.
