I have been studying the issue for a while, and I have reached the conclusion that Scripture does not teach Calvinism. I am looking for a Calvinist to explain why they believe Calvinism is true. I would prefer to stay mostly on what scripture says, but we can additionally use philosophy to establish our worldview.

You and I will each have the burden of proving or disproving Calvinism respectfully. You may go first with your positive evidence for Calvinism.

So that you may know my position, I reject all 5 points of Calvinism. I also reject the Calvinist view of sovereignty and compatibilist free-will.

The apostle Paul warned against sectarianism in 1 Corinthians 1. The Bible is a Judeo Christian book, end of story.

While sectarianism is not advised, Calvinism is an important issue. Are you a Calvinist, and are you going to participate in the debate you accepted, or are you going to waste my time?
