I decided to change the original post for better clarification. I didn't want anyone to miss the main message. The Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde photo was misunderstood by more than a few. My fault.
If there was an Arminian form of Atheism, would that make the atheist STILL his own worst enemy?
Helen, both Arminianism and atheism are based in rationalism. That is, both exalt reason above God's revelation in Scripture. The Arminian reads his own view of justice into Scripture and says that if God is absolutely sovereign and there is no "libertarian" free will then God would be a monster. The atheist agrees with the Arminian and carries the argument through to its logical conclusion. The biblical Christian, however, starts with the self-evident axiom that the Bible is the Word of God and develops his theology from Scripture as a logical revelation in propositional form. All truth and knowledge begins with Scripture. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Psalm 115:3; Isaiah 14:24; Isaiah 46:9-10; Isaiah 45:7; Amos 3:6; Acts 2:23; Acts 4:27-28).
Charlie, I know! That was the whole premise for my attempt at humour! (Rhetorical question!)
Great post, Eddie:)
