Starting any conversation on this subject of who and how God chooses people for salvation can be fraught with peril as it has been fought over, debated, and separated Christians through the ages. Unfortunately, most people think that they have only two camps to choose from and that’s where the topic starts and ends.
But what if there was another option? What if there was an option that didn’t try to compromise between the two camps? What if there was an alternative Biblical view that has a striking parallel between the Old and New Testaments?
And what if this position eliminated some of the unintended paradoxes and uneasy tension that as a Calvanist you struggle with God being the author of sin or as an Arminian you never quite have the assurance of faith.
If you’re brave and willing to take a walk with me you might discover a very liberating yet solidly Biblical approach to election.
