We all agree that someone must have faith in Christ for salvation.
Calvinists argue that faith comes as a result of an effectual work in the heart of the man irresistibly producing saving faith in Christ.
Non-Cals argue that faith comes as a result of hearing God's words, but not effectually or "irresistibly" so.
So, we both affirm faith results from God's work, but one is an effectual work and the other is not.
Now, here is the question: Whether faith is produced effectually...

Man! I hope I haven't gone through all this schooling for nothin...!!!

11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
The Atonement of Christ has reconciled the elect world to God. It secured and ensured for it [ the elect world] every spiritual blessing needed to live unto God and for His Glory through Jesus christ.

And let God decide if He saves sinners thru being either a Calvinist or an Arminian?
Just asking, as sometimes feel that IF someone came to preach/teach on the risen Christ...
If he was not of "our camp" we would keep him outside the gates!
