Why Does God Allow Arminianism?

Time for a little satire so all you Calvinists, please don’t take this too seriously.

The following is from the personal blog of Dr. John Wesley Calvin (not a real person).

Why does God allow Arminianism?  This was posed to me recently at a conference I was attending (you know us Calvinists, always attending various conferences).  If you look around you’ll notice that nearly 98% of the church is Arminian.  They are everywhere.  They have way more Bible teaching programs than we do, more seminaries that are Arminian in theology, and their books fill Christian bookstores.  Arminianism is the dominant theology in the United States and many Western nations.  What are we Calvinists to do?  How do we respond to this?  And why does a sovereign God allow such errors to persist?

Let me try to answer you my dear Calvinist friends and family.

1.  Satan.

God gives Satan a certain amount of freedom and as the father of lies (John 8:44), Satan is always seeking to deceive people from the truth (2 Corinthians 4:4).  Satan blinds Arminians eyes to the truths of the doctrines of grace.

2.  To Strengthen the Saints.

God allows Arminianism to persist so that the testimony of the saints will be stronger.  This affliction (2 Corinthians 4:17) is used by God to help us know the truths of Calvinism.  Further, when you debate an Arminian, you see how ignorant they are and how they don’t use the Bible to defend their views.  They are lovers of self, prideful, lovers of so-called “free will” and they despise God’s sovereignty.  God uses these debates to show us true saints how correct we are and how the doctrines of grace truly exalt our God.

3.  To Show Who The Reprobate Are.

I have no doubt that many Arminians are reprobate.  They will be cast into hell for their denial of God’s grace, God’s sovereignty, and God’s glory.  These reprobates bring shame to the truth of God.  God allows Arminians to persist to show us who are truly the elect or not (1 John 2:19).

4.  Mystery.

Deuteronomy 29:29.

So my dear Calvinist friends, let us continue in the doctrines of grace till the end.  We will win this war because truth is on our side.
