Thread: Arminianism or Calvinism?

  1. #1

    Arminianism or Calvinism?

    OK, this post is to correct my earlier "oops." I was wondering who adheres to Arminianism and who adheres to Calvinism. I myself am more of an Arminian, but I view those with more Calvinistic views as my brothers/sisters despite petty ideological differences.

    You need another option. "Neither".

    No problem. Most people don't seem to realize that you don't have to choose one camp or the other. Each has some truth, and also some error in their teaching. I find it much easier to just read the Bible, let it speak for itself.

    Besides, you did say "adhere more to."

    Yeah, the 'more to' makes it very simple for seemingly everyone to participate in this poll. I am definitely MORE inclined to side with the arminian camp. No contest.

    They are both right and wrong concerning different areas. If I was forced to pick then definitely Arminianism.

    I went for Calvinism. From what I've learned about Calvinism, it's actually a mix of Predestination and Free Will, not just Predestination which is what I first thought.

    And I agree with these two. Just scripture. Divisions divide.
    Seek ye FIRST the kingdom.
    Not second or third, but first.
    Only when all else pales to God, when He receives all glory,
    when He is the source of all hope,
    when His love is received and freely given,
    holding not to the world but to the promise to come,
    will all other things be added unto to you.

    In some areas, I was predestined to be Arminian. In others, I choose to be Calvinist.

    I agree.
    I would say that Jesus is the gospel and nothing else. Calvinism or any other doctrine named after man isn't even a close second.
    Matt 9:13
    13 "But go and learn what this means: ' I DESIRE COMPASSION,AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
