I saw this meme on Facebook today:
Now of course as an Arminian, I also agree that salvation is of the Lord. God invented it and Christ died (and rose again!) to make it possible; He chooses who to save (conditional election) and He saves them by His power alone.
So, Arminians do say "Salvation is of the Lord." But what separates us from most Calvinists is that we believe in the power of the Lord.
Arminians proclaim the ability of God. Calvinists begin their argument with saying that man cannot have faith until regenerated. And many cannot answer this question:
If God wanted to, would He be able to give a man so much grace that the man could accept salvation, without needing to give so much that the man would be unable to refuse?
Is that an option that God has available to Him?"
