The Biblical Road (or a Tale of Two Ditches):
I was raised in a church were Calvinism was said to be a ditch on the one hand, and Arminiansm was said to be a ditch on the other, and the road in the middle was biblicism. I even attended a Bible college where I was taught the same thing. But as I began to study Scripture something became evident. Those who were saying this, and calling themselves biblicist, were actually just 4 point Arminians at best. I am sure they meant well, but just because you call yourself a biblicist doesn’t make you one, nor keep you from error.
Another thing noticed was that the road wasn’t [Calvinism (ditch)]|Biblicism(road)|[Arminianism (ditch)]. They had left something out – Hyper-Calvinism. The illustration is, in reality,
[Hyper-Calvinism (ditch)]|Calvinism/Biblicism(road)|[Arminianism (ditch)]
Now, this will probably make those who walk in the ditches angry, for two reasons. 1. I just said you are not on the theologically biblical path. 2. I just said my held theology was biblical.
I do not say these things to incite anger, but to stir the heart and mind, and encourage you to read this article I read on the subject. I think it is extremely helpful in laying the matter out plainly, and biblicaly.
