To start, let’s think of some horrible sin like… a child being brutally stabbed to death by a disgusting excuse for a human being. This scenario can be interpreted in multiple ways
Thus, the arguments would go as follows…
Ultimately what happens is…
Notice how it basically goes from God to man? Well, this is exactly what happens when you apply the standards of man to God aka the standards of creature to Creator. God becomes man, Creator becomes creature. You see, as a man, if I was in the presence of a child being brutally stabbed to death and had the power to stop it, it would be wrong for me not to. If I knew it was going to happen but allowed it, it would be wrong for me to. If I planned for it to take place, I’d be just as cruel as the person doing the act.
The thing is, there’s two kinds of sin, those of commission and those of omission. A sin of commission is doing what is wrong. A sin of omission is not doing what you should be doing.
The vast majority of anti-Calvinistic thought makes this fatal mistake:
All the while ignoring the fact, that by applying the standards of creature to Creator, they would ultimately condemn their own God as evil, due to His allowance of evil acts (omission).
Yet I uphold the idea of Creator being categorically different than creature and thus can ordain the worst sin ever to take place in history, aka the death of the only good man ever to exist (Acts 2:23). Meow
people over-simplifying the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be incredibly one-sided are starting to annoy me
The current invasion notwithstanding, the casualty statistics, military capabilities, and general treatment of one group by another are together similar to a high school senior jock punching an annoying fifth grader for standing next to him and poking him.
if this isn’t how your boyfriend describes you, you need to move on.
