Calvinism vs. Molinism?

I've been saying this for a while: Calvinism and Molinism are compatible.

The thing is, though, many Molinists (including the best-known advocates) are Arminian, so when Calvinists (ostensibly) object to Molinism, they are often actually objecting to the underlying Arminian theology held by many (most?) Molinists. This is not to say that many Calvinists do not have actual objections to Molinism (the grounding problem, for one), just that these objections are distinct from the Calvinism/Arminianism debate. In fact, many of the most common objections to Molinism are put forth by Calvinists and Arminians.

  1. I've studied the issue a bit more since I posted this entry, and I now believe that Molinism dies the death of a thousand qualifications. Once the Molinistic Calvinist has made all the proper qualifications, he is left with . . . Calvinism.
