Would it be correct to say that regardless of the negative or positive views both the Infra and Supra positions agree that Election and Reprobation proceed out of Godís eternal good pleasure and agree that anything else is Arminianism.

Speaking for myself.... I would say your conclusion is 100% correct. However, I would be quick to add that this election and reprobation which originates in God's good pleasure was incontrovertibly UNCONDITIONAL, i.e., it was based solely upon God's good pleasure for reasons solely found within Himself and not due to anything which has to do with the individuals themselves. There are some Arminians who would affirm a "predestination", which when scrutinized amounts to "postdestination" and is based upon "prescience", i.e., a decree after the fact; that fact being the exercising of faith by the yet uncreated person. rolleyes2
