Re: Reformed Theology Discussion

Bart, Why are you being so obstinate? All I’m doing is trying to establish your source and what it claims. Calvin certainly knew what he was saying in this areas and he was clear. God once established by His eternal and unchangeable plan those whom He long before determined once for all to receive i...

Re: Reformed Theology Discussion

Bart, I'm afraid the above is yet more rhetoric. Please, can you just address what I have raised? You haven't demonstrated (or even begun to demonstrate) how [on Calvinism] God is the "author of evil"... You said you'd look into your "dreadful decree" quote: where it came from an...

Re: Reformed Theology Discussion

To sum up, since God's will is said to be the cause of all things, I have made his providence the determinative principle for all human plans and works, not only in order to display its force in the elect, who are ruled by the Holy Spirit, but also to compel the reprobate to obedience.(Calvin, Inst...

Re: John Wesley's theology

I see you guys haven't gotten anywhere on this...I wanted to post and continue the debate but the there is so much jumping around old posts and new, by everyone that I decided to just read what you guys are discussing. Indeed, brother Neo. It’s like an average movie that just took a turn for the wo...

Re: John Wesley's theology

Do you really have a point to make Philip other than just asserting the same thing over and over again? Please spare us your sense of incredulity, really, it is just insulting. Can you honestly say that you have it all figured out when theologians and apologists from all walks and disciplines still...

Re: Molinism discussion

I would hardly say anyone even grasps Molinism in 7 days. WLC didn't understand Molinism in 7 days, what makes you so special? Is there some kind of special industrial strength Red Bull you drink? What's the secret? 1. What? I’ve been looking into Molinism for the best part of 3 years now on and of...

Re: Molinism discussion

You know what, Danny? I wish you'd take a step back and really look at your writing and just realize the poor attitude you bring. Thanks for the lesson. I've thumbed through some of the readings that have been offered here by BW and by canuckster in the other thread, and all you've done is whine an...

Re: "The Best reply to Atheists"

Intelligent atheism seems to be a thing of the past; contemporary atheists are more filled with Wagnerian bombast than intelligent discourse. Perhaps this pastor's answer will quiet their noise as it makes an appeal to the ''god'' of atheism: Reason & Logic. We live in hope, bro. But the noise ...

Below is same article but from Pages 14-15 along with its notes... on some of the issues PL noted about Free Will... Molinists hold to what can be called “soft libertarianism.” Soft libertarianism holds to agent causation and argues that the ultimate responsibility for a person’s decisions rests on...

Re: John Wesley's theology

It is absolutely incredible to me that anyone believes that the free will which God has so mercifully and gracefully given us, that using it by simply being RECEPTIVE to and subsequently embracing God's free gift of salvation, saves anyone - although it is the door through which ALL must walk to re...

Re: Molinism discussion

What the liberty of the will is has been defined by Craig as …”the liberty and contingency of the creaturely will, so that God is not the author of sin,” This is simply inadequate. Has Craig demonstrated God’s sovereignty over all events is a restriction on man’s liberty? Has he then gone on to dem...
