For many many years there has been a debate about Man's Free Will to chose vs. Predestination, God sovereignly chooses for us or the more religious crowd would understand when I say - Calvinism vs. Arminianism.
When people ask me if I am Calvinist or Armenian I say yes. I think that they co-exist, and this is what makes God so amazing; some how these two can exist at the same time (this is so clear in scripture). I do not believe it's an either-or here. But unfortunately in too much of the Christian world you must pick sides ... so I pick both sides. This is my short answer!
