If you are Christian, do you consider yourself Calvinist, Arminian, or something in between?
I am neither. For those unfamiliar with the theologies, it’s basically predestination vs free will. There’s 5 main points to Calvinism which are represented by the Acronym TULIP. Sometimes Calvinists and Arminians are called Tulips and wildflowers. Some people agree with some of Calvin’s points, but not all. They call themselves 3 point Calvinists or 2 point Calvinists.
I am Catholic and Catholics are neither Calvinists nor Arminian because Catholicism predates both of those theologies. I grew up Methodist, though, which is Arminian. I have a daughter who is a 5 point Calvinist. As a child, I used to listen to 2 of my great aunts argue about predestination for hours. They never changed the other’s mind, but never gave up, either. They argued as long as they both were living.
