BOTH/AND WITHOUT CONTRADICTION


Our theology should be able to accept and reconcile all of Scripture – WITHOUT contradiction and convoluted reworking of passages.

For example, Unitarianism focuses on the passages stating that Jesus is not The Father and conclude that Jesus is not God. However it runs into countless problem passages that state or imply the divinity of Jesus.

Meanwhile, Oneness focuses on the passages stating that Jesus is divine and conclude that Jesus is The Father. However it runs into countless problem passages that state or imply that Jesus and The Father are distinct.

Finally, the Trinitarianism accepts and reconciles all the passages stating or implying that Jesus is divine, yet is not The Father.

Calvinism will of course affirm the Trinity and praise how it solves the apparent dilemma. No contradiction or either/or false dilemma is necessary when it comes to this matter. But why can’t Calvinism affirm both God’s sovereignty AND human free will as sovereignly granted by God? No contradiction or either/or false dilemma is necessary when it comes to this either!

Instead, it is forced to creatively re-interpret the plain, face value meaning of countless passages that state or imply that humans have real, meaningful choices. At the same time as it invents contradictory, counterituitive and illogical manmade philosophies such as Compatibilism and The Two Wills of God.
