Just listen to John Piper’s answer. I have never come across the short version of the difference between Calvinist and Arminians. This is wonderful!

At the end, Piper tailored his answer so a 13-year old young man can understand it. Don’t you love that!

My older son was asking me this same question like a couple weeks ago and I was all over the map.

Thank you, John Piper, for putting it all simply and plainly.

The answer a person gives to the following question makes him/her a Calvinist or Arminians:

“God saves, but what was the decisive cause of your faith in Christ? Was it God or was it yourself?”///
