Having been reformed for a while now, and havinf taken Soteriology in an arminian-credobaptist Bible college, it seems to me the question boils down to this...<br><br>Who controls the efficacy of salvation?<br><br>A) Man's will<br><br>or<br><br>B) God's grace<br><br>The sovreignty issue basically boils down to the same notion. Does God save, or only attempt to save? Does God attempt to save all mankind ineffectually, or effectually save those He chooses? I have never heard arminians explain how substitutionary atonement is only an attempt to save.<br><br><br>God bless,<br><br>william
