comment Difference between Augustinianism and Calvinism
@SanJacinto By "active" I was just trying to speak about God's choices. For Calvin, God chooses to elect some and chooses to reject others - whether or not he has to "do" anything to reject the reprobate - and that choice is prior to any (lack of) merit on their part. I linked the Calvin quote, if you look at all of section 11 he is really clear about that. Augustine never spoke of reprobation in that way.

comment How should I understand the emphasis on “begotten, not made” in the Nicene Creed?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 from an orthodox perspective, sure. But Arius disagreed, and that is why Nicea is so specific.

comment How do Roman Catholics understand salvation in light of Romans 3&4?
Thanks, this is something like what I was looking for. One clarifying question - what do meritorious works merit from God if not justification?

comment Did Paul write other letters that are not in the Bible?
The "or" in your first sentence implies that some of Paul's letters which were not lost were nevertheless excluded from the canon because they were "not theological". This is not the case.
