As a fundamentalist Christian, I was never a true Calvinist. However, I did flirt with Reform Theology as one of my steps in the de-converting process. I remember being totally captivated by the book “The Potter’s Freedom” by James R. White. Now I have come to the conclusion that the only Christian belief system that has any hope of being consistent in their view of God is Calvinism. Inconsistencies in the beliefs of Christianity was one of the primary reasons for my de-conversion journey. The majority of Christians are perfectly comfortable believing mutually exclusive concepts.
We’ve discussed Richard’s Dawkins’ discription of God which lines up with my conclusion and one of the catalysts for my de-conversion:
“Jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
