A Newborn Arminian


I cannot be a Calvinist with any measure of conscience. As I peered into this newborn's eyes I came to the stark realization that contrary to the Calvinist assertion that the LORD purposefully creates souls as fodder for hell, He brings souls in this world for the purpose of Love. I bring a bias here. This is my newborn grandson born on June 5, 2008 at 10 o'clock in the evening. His name is Benjamin Riley Mallett and I hold him daily bonding and letting him know his grandfather (Papa to him and my other three grandchildren) by sight and voice. I have fed him with breast milk (not mine obviously), burped him, changed him and talked to him of the LORD. He will be raised up in the LORD and taught the doctrines of Christ.

Congratulations!! Great name as well! How wondeful it is to know that God loves this child even more than you or his parents (which, as a parent, is hard to imagine).

Thank you for your comment. I think it is a great name. The LORD's love is unmeasurable and unlimited by any man's imagination.

Praise God and be blessed
