This is true to a much broader spectrum than just Calvinists.

Yet because I believe I am not responsible for my belief, I am responsible to that belief.

Yet the last few pages I have given a general outline toward why I feel I believe, how it relates to the nonbeliever, correlations to observations of what can be seen in the world we share, etc.

Certainly no one need agree on any of the points of my stated position.
But in that light, what I have quoted above is...

I have absolutely nothing against those who don't believe. My declared position is that believing isn't a choice. As I like to feel I'm a reasonable person, or at least strive to be, I'd be unreasonable to feel anything else.

Besides, it's also my belief that after the resurrection the current people who don't believe now will be in a far better position than most of those who currently are believers.

Because God likes rational people? Consider

(AOG would describe me well, even though I never was an official member of an Assemblies church, the churches I was a member of believed and worshipped in exactly the same way that AOG did.) I wanted to love and serve God all my life, and I begged him again and again to please tell me what he wanted me to do with my life, but never got an answer. I then decided to investigate just how it is that God communicates with humans (an audible voice? pen on paper without a human touching the pen? skywriting?), and after many years of praying, seeking and searching finally just gave it all up and became an atheist.

My question to you is how you can consider a god that treats me with such unfair and calloused disregard and disrespect to be worthy of your worship?

I'm not a Calvinist, but I'll ask, are you happier now that you're an atheist?

No, the words were thoughtfully chosen. You chose to respond to the questions, to participate in the discussion. You didn't have to.

lol Okay. Since I was quoted by you, in the reply in question;

I'll extend the benefit of the doubt.
Rescind, thoughtless.
Replace with unobservant.

But that's it. I have the will to do no more. Wink
