"God sovereignly decreed that man should be free to exercise moral choice, and man from the beginning has fulfilled that decree by making his choice between good and evil. When he chooses to do evil, he does not thereby countervail the sovereign will of God but fulfills it, inasmuch as the eternal decree decided not which choice the man should make but that he should be free to make it....Man's will is free because God is sovereign.... A God less than sovereign...would be afraid to...bestow moral freedom upon His creatures. God moves undisturbed and unhindered toward the fulfillment of those eternal purposes which He purposed in Christ Jesus before the world began... with infinite wisdom and perfect precision of action. No one can...turn Him aside from His plans. Since He is omniscient [and] sovereign...there can be...no accidents...no breakdown in authority; and as He is omnipotent, there can be no want of power to achieve His chosen ends . . . . Within the broad field of God's sovereign, permissive will the deadly conflict of good and evil continues with increasing fury. God will yet have His way [but] as responsible beings, we must make our choice in the present moral situation."

A.W. Tozer (1897-1963), from The knowledge of the Holy - Also available as an audio book and Kindle Edition

"Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous" (Romans 5:18-19 - The English Standard Version).

The following are some helpful resources about Calvinism which I have gathered together....

The Five Points Of Calvinism, by George Bryson
Description: "The distinctives and doctrines of Calvinism are (relative to the doctrine of salvation) most evident in the FIVE POINTS OF CALVINISM. To understand the Five Points as Calvinist do, you must see them as the expression of the Calvinistic definition of predestination, which must in turn be viewed as the basis of their doctrine of salvation. From the back cover: It is amazing that so many Christians call themselves Calvinists and yet few understand Calvinist doctrine. A careful look at Calvinism in light of Scripture, before it is embraced, is the best possible way for Christians to protect themselves against this error of considerable consequence. What Calvinists admit may surprise you. Each of the much touted (but little understood) 5 points of Calvinism are carefully compared with the clear teaching of God's holy and infallible Word, providing both serious scriptural challenge, as well as correction to the extremes of Calvinism.
"George Bryson is a very unusual non-Calvinist. He is able to describe the doctrinal position of Calvinism without putting any extra eggs in the pudding. His descriptions are fair and accurate, and he clearly knows his subject. The first portion of the book, the place where he does all this, is very good." --Douglas Wilson Reformed Professor (New St. Andrews College) and Pastor of the Community Evangelical Fellowship in Moscow, ID George Bryson is the director of Calvary Chapel Church Planting Mission, an outreach to Russia and the former Soviet Union. In addition to writing a number of pamphlets, George collaborated with Dr. Bill Playfair on the book THE USEFUL LIE, a challenge to the so-called Christian Recovery Industry. His newest book is THE GOSPEL OF CALVINISM. George and his wife Debbi have also written several Bible study guides together. George has served in full-time ministry with Calvary Chapel since 1968".

Debating Calvinism: Five Points, Two Views, by Dave Hunt and James White
This is a debate about Calvinism between Calvinist James White and non-Calvinist Dave Hunt. Some of this is frustrating at times, and I found it hard to stomach for that reason. But it may give some people a better understanding of what each side is teaching. Click here to see Dave Hunt's response to James White, which was written before this debate book.
