In my study I have come to believe that Calvanism is the correct theology. However, I do not feel I can be dogmatic about it since I belive 2 people can come to different conclusions on the subject using scripture. It might be a cop-out, but I believe when and if it is ever revealed to us in Heaven both views are correct. It is just that are intellect is incapable of understanding this doctrine completely now. Does it really matter if both side witness and pray for the lost? I do have a problem with Hyper-Calvanism, but that is not what is represented on this board. Does believing in pre-destination change ones actions or deeds that he would otherwise do if he were not a Calvanist? Or vice versa. Each side pretend for a moment that you believe in the opposite view. Does it really change your behavior? I would be burdened for the salvation of my children and friends no less. I would still believe it takes a work of God to stir a lost man's heart. Fairness? That was my biggest hurdle. But what is fair? Being a deaf child the age of ten living in an isolated jungle in South America in the year 1123 AD. You think that child ever heard the name Jesus? Do you think any of her ancestors heard the name Jesus? Sure, they had nature, but we have the church. Would you rather have a tree as your witness or the Bible? Is that fair? I love the discussion and who knows one day God may reveal I am wrong, and thats OK with me, but why the hatred?
