comment How do Arminians reconcile free will with God's omnipotence logically?
Pertinent CS Lewis Quote: "His Omnipotence means power to do all that is intrinsically possible, not to do the intrinsically impossible. You may attribute miracles to Him, but not nonsense. There is no limit to His power. If you choose to say, 'God can give a creature free will and at the same time withhold free will from it,' you have not succeeded in saying anything about God: meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prifex to them the two other words, 'God can.'"

@mojo, Sorry I haven't been very clear. I have edited the question to hopefully clarify.

comment Why can't there be another fall?
@mojo, I'm not actually making that assertion. I agree with you, which was my point. I was using Lucifer's untempted rebellion to argue against the assertion that we would be sinless because we lack a tempter. The implication would be that the angels (and Lucifer) had more free will than us, if they were able to rebel on their own accord without an external tempter.

comment How does our work on this earth transfer into the new earth when God returns?
This is a great question, and has been on my mind by similar sources: A few sermons that I recently listened to by Tim Keller, and a reading of Why Christian Character Matters by N.T. Wright. I hope we get some more answers to this question.

comment Can Grace be irresistible and still be a gift?
@Rick, I'm not a Calvinist, and I personally don't think there's a good case for grace being irresistible. But, in general, the notion of resistibility does not contradict the notion of giftiness. Understanding the Biblical case for irresistible grace is a separate question.
