I am looking for suggestions on how to reword this question to better fit the site and narrow the scope to a specific doctrine question.
[T]he Calvinist perspective on free will probably has a lot to do with this. If you believe that man has a role to play in the creation of faith in others, you'll find man to be a co-creator (working with the Holy Spirit). If you believe God just put it there to begin with, then man is just a passive instrument and not a creator.
To put this into site guidelines I suggest asking for an Arminian or Calvinist perspective. I would ask how it is that Arminianism can explain the antinomy of God having given the creativity, deserves glory for that and all you create with it, yet you created with it, not God.
