How can we reconcile the dogma of Calvin against the Scripture of James?
That doesn't answer the question. GOD doesn't tempt people to sin. However, you don't think that GOD knows that people are going to sin before they sin? Did Judas' betrayal of Christ take GOD by surprise?
Jesus was the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world, but I guess GOD just didn't know any specifics of how that Lamb was going to be slain? That's ridiculous.
