Calvinist, James White, comments: “For some reason, [Dave] Hunt prefers a God who created without a purpose and decree – even though He fully knew that His creation would be filled with senseless, purposeless, gratuitous evil and suffering! That is the price of libertarian freedom, and it is a price Mr. Hunt seems willing to pay.” (Debating Calvinism, p.192, emphasis mine)
But Calvinists seem to prefer a God who is the origin and mastermind behind all evil, having imagined things like child demon possession, witchcraft, the Occult, incest and homosexuality, based upon no example from an independent being, but having self-dreamed it, and then decreed it to exist…for His glory, as a Calvinist would say. For Calvinists, that’s somehow better. Moreover, God himself disavows that He is the mastermind behind evil. Consider Jeremiah 32:35, for example.
One Calvinist asks: “According to Arminianism, God knows who will choose Him, and who will reject Him, before they're ever born? So that means that God knows who will reject Christ, and be condemned to Hell prior to creating them, yet He creates them anyway?”
Yes, and the answer is found in the parable of the “Wheat and the Tares.” (Matthew 13:24-42) Mankind is interconnected.
Furthermore, God denies that He is the origin of the tares: “An enemy has done this!” (Matthew 13:28) But according to Calvinism, the “enemy” is the One who decreed all things, as per James White.
