Who Said It?

"...the saving acceptance of Christ is not forced, but voluntary. None are forced to come to Christ; it is a 'free choice'." And then in closing the preacher proclaims: "God has sent me to you to make you the offer. Christ has sent me to give you an invitation".

Who said it? Do you agree?

This man's doctrine could be summed up this way:

"So, then, the invitation is given to all, and no one who gets Christ gets him any other way than by a 'free choice'".


  1. This is just a guess, but I would say Charles Spurgeon, just because it sounds completely Arminian in Theology, but it is easy to be fooled by appearances.

  2. Just to clarify: I don't think that Charles Spurgeon was Arminian. I just think that you are tricky in the quotes that you select.

  3. LOL,

    Charles Spurgeon is NOT an dare you David! You are right that I'm tricky...but it is not Spurgeon.

  4. so..., nobody has figured it out, why don't you reveal who it was?

  5. Ohhhh yeah, I forgot about this quote I left hanging....It is none other than Jonathan Edwards. A little surprising, eh?

  6. Actually, not really. Something I am beginning to realize is that Calvinists and Arminians use a lot of the same language; however, while that is true, they differ quite severely in their underlying suppositions. Arminians: "how can I understand this in such a way to preserve Man's freedom?" Calvinists: "What is most glorifying to God?"
