I realize that many Christians (Calvinists) believe in Compatibilism. But from my limited understanding of it, I’m wondering if it’s not a fanciful way of say they believe in a contradiction. Now I know that the reason they will say that’s not true is because they believe there are no contradictions and compatibilism is true. But that, to me, would seem to force compatibilists away from having any hope of aruing for such a view from logic.
I could argue, God loves to murder people, and I could argue that God hates for people to be murdered. I could also argue that I don’t believe in a contradiction because somehow God’s loving murder and his hatred of people murdered are somehow compatible.
So as I understand it, and I might be wrong due to my limited understanding of Compatibilism, it’s really only an appeal or a fanciful way of saying - we see two things oppose (contradict) each other but we somehow they are both true.
So my question is this:
What is the difference between a Calminian and a Compatiblist? They both believe both are true - aren’t they both compatibilists?
