Wow, didn't think he would ever acknowledge something like this, but the real question now is, "Why is that?" "Why are the fruits of Calvinism the consistent exaltation of God in the whole of life, and Arminians often have to become Calvinists when dealing with tragedy?" Is tragedy actually the time when one stops creating delusions of human free will to control his own life and admit that God is the only one in ultimate control of all things? Is it not a time when we stop playing and get serious about the fact that we're not the gods of our own destiny, but rather the participants in one laid out for us? In any case, I find this to be an amazing admission on his part.
