The The Calvinist-Arminian debate is academic.

it is a debate between two views that both have a lot of bible support.

it is a debate that takes up a lot of time within the christian church.

its also a pointless debate, that is endless, and most gives no one comfort.

Even the person who believes they have won the debate has no comfort for his effort.

The life of the believer is not made more easy by the victory, nor has the life of the loser of this debate had their life made different in even the slightest ways...

that makes this a purely academic effort.
