So what do you think about salvation being neither all up to you nor all up to God?
Arminianism teaches that God certainly desires that all be saved and has provided redemption for all, but He cannot overcome the “free will” of a person. So God is WILLING BUT UNABLE to save everyone. So you have to do something…or else, too bad?
Calvinism teaches that God is able to save anyone that He desires, but He has chosen to provide redemption to only some. So God is ABLE BUT UNWILLING to save everyone. So God has to do something…or else, too bad?
Is it possible that God is BOTH WILLING AND ABLE to save everyone? That we set our hope on HIM, not theology?
For to this end we toil and struggle, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. 1 Timothy 4:10 (NRSV)
He is the savior of ALL people, ESPECIALLY of those who believe. This, I believe, is Real Life Jesus.
