Simplicity and systems

In certain circles Calvinism is "all the rage".* In others the debates over Calvinism, Arminianism and all points in between are causing lots of rage.** In the end soteriological systems usually miss the point.

On the one hand, the biblical doctrine of salvation is so vast and majestic that it cannot be condensed to neatly fit a particular soteriological system.

On the other hand, those who clamor for their particular systems often obfuscate the gospel's simplicity. Christ died for sinners. Preach the gospel. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

* very fashionable, the object of widespread enthusiasm
** uncontrollable anger
