I have heard anti-Calvinists usually argue against Calvinism by quoting James White's response to a question "does God decree child rape" to which he responded "yes, otherwise it's a meaningless evil." Now, I have likewise heard Bob Enyart, an open-theist heretic, say that in order for God to decree these things he had to "have it on his mind" for all of eternity - thus indirectly stating God must be a pervert. Now... These arguments by anti-Calvinists are obviously lacking a lot of meaningful thought on the nature of God's sovereignty and the only logical conclusion is the heresy of open theism where God does not know these things are going to happen. And even if open theism was right, they would have to answer why God doesn't always stop evil events in their tracks (surely he would see the people planning out some of these evil deeds, or at least try to stop the deeds once they start before it comes to full fruition, right?) This has to assume that God cannot decree evil in order to mean good out of it. And as a side note, I find it interesting that the most rapid anti-Calvinists like Steven Anderson call us perverts for believing this - but it is them who always think about child rape whenever God's decrees come up in discussion. But at the same time, I do understand because it is very difficult to think that God would know and allow, much more decree these very evil things to come to pass, but I trust God is good and knows what He is doing with His own creation. He is not the author of sin. What do you guys think?
