Good Quote from Roger Olson on Monergism

Dr. Roger Olson, in his book Against Calvinism, states the following:

The sole reason non-Calvinist evangelical Christians object to monergism is because it makes God the ultimate, even if indirect, cause of the reprobates’ unbelief and damnation.  It does serious harm to God’s reputation.

Great point.  If God is the only one involved in saving a sinner then the non-elect go to hell not because of their own sins but because of the unwillingness on God’s part to save them.  This does not reveal the love of God very well (John 3:16) who gave His Son to die for all (1 John 2:2) when in fact He died to secure the salvation of very few.
