    So... I guess you'll have to deny the Trinity if you apply this to yourself as you wish to apply it to Calvinists.

    Sad.

    I am still stuck on those "easy things" such as how Jesus is both fully God and Man!

    Maybe he's referring to stuff like reverting to mishandling verses like: "His ways are higher than our ways", no?

    I have no problem believing in things like the Trinity because the Lord said things like "I and my Father are one" . So I just believe it by faith, even though it is beyond my comprehension..But I understand that the phrase "His ways are higher than our ways" really means that God's righteousness and holiness and mercy and love are far above anything we could ever do or even comprehend. It doesn't mean we can't know right from wrong, because the Bible says Adam and Eve came to "know good and evil" . So I can see and even lost people can understand that the false concept, of a god who would predetermine that some would go to Hell for his "glory", is just evil. And I'm not saying that God is evil, because He is not that way.
