(From Outside the Camp, Vol. 2, No. 1)
It is such a clear, simple syllogism:
(1) All who believe a false gospel are not saved.
(2) Arminianism is a false gospel.
(3) Thus, all who believe Arminianism are not saved.
What is so hard to understand about this? Why do so many who say they believe the premises (1 and 2) recoil in horror at the thought of the conclusion (3)?
The answers are grave ones. Those who refuse to come to the conclusion that Arminians (those who believe Arminianism) are not saved do not truly believe one or both of the two premises. If one does not believe the first premise, then he does not believe in an exclusive gospel and believes that "there are many paths to God." If one does not believe the second premise, then he either does not know what Arminianism is or does not know what the gospel is. The one who would claim to believe the second premise and yet does not believe the conclusion is in a horrible state.
