Arminian Grace

One of my favorite Blogs to read is Tim Challies'. I found, and am now stealing, something that I found from his site. I believe he took it from some internet site so I do not have the original link.

Arminian Grace - To the Tune of Amazing Grace

Arminian "grace!" How strange the sound,
Salvation hinged on me.
I once was lost then turned around,
Was blind then chose to see.

What "grace" is it that calls for choice,
Made from some good within?
That part that wills to heed God's voice,
Proved stronger than my sin.

Thru many ardent gospel pleas,
I sat with heart of stone.
But then some hidden good in me,
Propelled me toward my home.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Because of what we've done,
We've no less days to sing our praise,
Than when we first begun.

(With apologies to John Newton)

This may be more against the Semi- Pelagians than Arminians but I think that it applies in some sense to all of the libertarian theologies. In any case, it is not meant as a treatise against Libertarianism. It is meant as a little light hearted dig at some of our Arminian friends.

In Christ alone,
Thanks to His Amazing Grace,

Excellent comment on McCain's "I am afraid to take my eyes off Jesus" post."
