    just curious why Arminians think that it is MORE fair to have God grant grace towards ALL to be able to get saved, KNOWING that many will refuse the offer anyways?

    Why would the Calvinist view of God make Him a puppet master, and the Arminian would make Him trying to save people, hoping that some might come on in?

    just saying that either cals/Arms can be accused of making God out to be someone He is not!

    Some claim it, but most of their posts show far greater deviation from the Word. There are a few . . (but predestined not to answer yet)

    Lets substitute repentance for a minute. How does God requiring repentance of all people knowing He has only allowed some to do it lead to justice let allone fairness?

    It comes down to justice. Our finite justice system which is only a speck of a shadow of what God's is cannot be more just than God's, can it?

    How could God showing grace to all men that enables them to repent be unfair? What could be more fair? If the man rejects God of his own free will and goes to hell, whose fault is that?

    On the other hand, if God does not regenerate a man so that he has the ability to repent and goes to hell, whose fault is that? Is that fair?

    Seems that there are a lot who may not call themselves Arminian, because they would say that man would make the free will response to accept Christ, after God grants them "grace enough" to place faith in jesus Christ...
