Nowhere will you find a Calvinist consign this issue to the realm of Adiaphora. It's simply one of those doctrines which is "deduced" and thus open to disagreement. Both sides are in full agreement as to the "telos" of God's foreordination and the subjects included. Indeed, there are definite ramifications for both views when pushed, e.g., it is not uncommon for those who held to Supralapsarianism to fall into hyper-Calvinism. Fortunately, this is not the case with all but only some.


How can any teaching that must be deduced from scripture through a process of human reasoning be anything more than a pious opinion? Doesn't scripture alone establish church doctrine not scripture plus human reason? Is not double predestination itself merely a human opinion with no basis in scripture alone?
