According to John Loftus:
“Calvinists further claim that the evidential apologetics practiced by Arminians leads people to atheism…”
This statement is less than self-explanatory. There is no official school of apologetics in Calvinism.
Likewise, how many men started out as professing Christians, and were led into atheism through their study of evidential apologetics?
Or is Loftus saying that evidential apologetics only has this effect when it is practiced by Arminians?
“…while Arminians claim that the horrific consequences of Calvinism leads people to atheism.”
How would Calvinism have this effect on people?
If you don’t believe in Calvinism, then you don’t believe that Calvinism has any horrific consequences.
But if you do believe in the consequences of Calvinism, whether “horrific” or not, then you must be a Calvinist rather than an atheist.
