Arminian Christian must answer this question – If God is not willing that any perish, why does God create those who will perish even though he knows they will reject his offer of salvation and spend eternity in hell?
Dr. Norman Geisler, apologist and Provost of Veritas Evangelical Seminary, is posed the question of why God creates men who he knows will go to hell on Geisler’s “The Voice of Truth” podcast. The caller first corrects Dr. Geisler’s repeated miscitation of Matthew 23:37 (.
..how often I would have gathered you but you were not willing), and then asks the question of why God still creates men he foreknows will go to hell if he is not willing that any should perish. Reformed theology has a biblical answer for this question. It is apparent that Dr. Geisler and his Arminian theology does not have a biblical answer.
Norman Geisler – “It’s better for God to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all.”
