That is an excellent point, shiloproject!Originally posted by shiloproject
I agree with most of what you say here, except this: if man is fallen to the point required by Calvinism, then it is either intellectually dishonest or intentionally misleading to say that man has any responsibility for his actions. As Paul says, we have no excuse, so obviously we must somehow have the ability to respond.Originally posted by granite1010
Calvinism has never rejected man's responsibility and knowledge. What is disputed is man's ability to act on what he knows--God's law is written on our hearts, there's no getting around that. The question is how badly man is fallen, and how depraved he really is. It's a question of degree more than anything else.
Afterall, a "dead man" cannot help failing to show up for work.
