Here you will learn from a Theology Professor and former Calvinist, Dr. Leighton Flowers, striving to help others answer the difficult questions about Soteriology as it pertains to predestination, election and all matters related to salvation from a non-Calvinistic perspective. These resources were created to study the truth of God's word deeply so as to better understand His character of love and desire for the salvation of all people. There are hundreds of hours of free video and audio content; all searchable, arranged by topic and/or biblical citations.
Is Calvinism correct? How about Arminianism? Or is the answer found somewhere in between? In Flowers' book “God's Provision for All,” the soteriological label "Provisionism" was coined which seeks to highlight the provision of God for every individual as in contrast with the Calvinistic claims that God only loves and provides the means of salvation for a relative few. Flowers wrote,
“We believe a recognizably good God is one that provides for those in need.
· We are all sinners, but God provides.
· We cannot save ourselves, but God provides.
· We are hopeless, but God provides.
· If someone needs revelation, God provides.
· If someone needs atonement, God provides.
· If someone needs love, God provides.
He not only provides for you and me, but for every single man, woman, boy, and girl. We
believe that the Bible teaches us that a good person would provide for those in need, and
therefore God, being recognizably good, is a God who also would provide for all who are
in need. He does not pass by His enemies on the other side of the road but stops to help
just as He instructs us to do (Luke 10:25-37).
We believe that no one perishes for a lack of provision, but agree with Paul who said,
“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved” (2 Thess. 2:10).
Those who end up eternally separated from God cannot rightly say, “No provision was
made for me,” or “My Creator did not really love or want me.” No, they have no such
excuse because they willfully rejected the sincere appeals of a gracious Father who
lovingly provided all they needed to believe and repent so as to be saved. What better
label for a soteriological worldview is there than one that highlights God's provision for
everyone He has created?”
