3. God's Hidden Will
It is a central tenet of Calvinism that God has two wills--a revealed will, which is to save all men--and a hidden will, which is to damn most. It is the latter of the two wills that the Calvinist insists is God's real will. In this chapter I explore some of the issues raised by this idea, and discuss the means we might expect an omniscient God to employ in hiding the truth.
