One of my buddies at work today, wandered into my office and was looking through the books in my bookshelf. Along with my finance-aimed books I have some C.S. Lewis, John Piper, and more. He picked up a John Piper book and said, "you know this guy is all calvinistic" with kind of a disgusted tone. I said, "yeah I know, that's one of the reasons I like him".
We went on discussing some of the differences between Calvinism and Arminism. He was arguing the point that God "chooses" or doesn't "choose". I challenged him saying, "If you can find one place in the Bible where it says that we "choose" then I'll change my opinion. Then we watched a video that Mark Driscoll did on "Free Will". I ended up loaning him my book, "The Pleasures of God" by John Piper and we'll see what kind of discussions that will dredge up!
I immediately called my Sovereigntist friend, Daniel Temple, and we laughed about how much we love arguing theological points of view.
