Why Ravi Zacharias rejects Calvinism

The sovereignty and responsibility issue should really be seen as two opposite poles of the same position. Light, for example, is viewed from some vantage points as particles. From other vantage points it is viewed as waves. Scientists are aware that light could not be both particles and waves, so they have coined a term for it, a kind of a construct, and they call it a “photon.” All they have done is create a word and a category that accommodates both perspectives which are real. I think you should view the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man as a kind of a precious stone with two facets to it. When it catches the light from one direction, you see one color; when it catches the light from the other direction you see the other color.

    Mi se pare ca titlul este pus gresit. Probabil asta si-a dorit cel care a publicat articolul initial in limba engleza. 🙂 Ravi Zacharis argumenteaza mai mult ca suveranitatea lui Dumnezeu si responsabilitatea omului sunt tinute in tensiune in Scriptura si ca cele doua merg impreuna, nu se anuleaza una pe cealalta.

    Sa inteleg ca ale mele comentarii nu trec de moderarea dvs ftare Marius? Am vorbit impotriva Domnului? Impotriva Cuvantului? Impotriva oamenilor? Credeti ca adevarul despre Noul Legamant nu zideste? …
