Does this passage present a dilemma for Arminians?
“In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will” (Eph 1:11).
If, on the one hand, God “works” and “wills” “all things,” then doesn’t that make God the “author of sin”?
If, on the other hand, God only works and wills some things (i.e. good things), not all things (i.e. both good and evil things), then they admit that “all” really means some. But that deep-sixes their prooftexts for unlimited atonement.
