True about the BIBLE – Ricky Grimsley Classical Arminians believe that the universal, convicting (but resistible) ministry of the Holy Spirit creates the space necessary for the genuinely free human response to the gospel in the form of love to God. This is where Weslyan renewal and Pentecostalism find foundation for rooting their experiential theology within the scope of classic reformed thinking while at the same time we preserve the spirit filled blend between reason and experience
YES Arminians agree with classical Calvinists that only by the unilateral action of God can a human being come to saving faith in Christ and that God’s grace, not human free will, is the ultimate ground and cause of salvation.

Most theologians who attack Arminians strike at contemporary Arminianism, but miss classical Arminianism. Yet, Classical Arminians subscribe to a much wider view of God’s grace than do classical Calvinists. And finally, all Classical Arminians believe the Bible teaches that human beings can (successfully and tragically) resist the convicting ministry of the Holy Spirit; which reason your proposed necessity for open theism highly illogical and completely unnecessary within the perimeter of the Weslyean / Pentecostal renewal tradition. For this reason alone all this time your position have failed to show how and why open theism (in the form proposed) is even necessary within the Weslyean / Pentecostal renewal tradition. Though it could be proposed that some charistmatics raised in the reformed tradition may experience the need you propose.

Most efforts here have most certainly not been to advocate for the version of Arminianism most commonly visible today. But I am advocating for the version that Arminius himself articulated, that Wesley defended, and that appears (to me and many others) to comport more fully with the Bible’s message than other views: that a sovereign God, full of love, created a humanity capable of entering freely into an exchange of love; that in the wake of sin’s devastating entry into the world and into human hearts, this same God committed to wooing every creature through the Spirit of God by creating room for a free and positive response to any given measure of light, and that God loves and most certainly desires to save everyone. Such a message glorifies God, dignifies the gospel message, and aligns with Scripture and does not need open theism. All of the above becomes obvious with any attempt to transfer an open theism view within the context of 16th century Dutch Reformed theology and the historic role of Arminius’ Remonstrants…
