Tackling Calvinist Errors on Omniscience & Aseity (Plus a Deductive Proof)

In our last post on Calvinists who talk past the debate, we handily disposed of the fallacious arguments of a Calvinist objector insists on misrepresenting the issue. He tries to salvage his rapidly-crumbling narrative with yet more proof that he is simply talking past what is being discussed without understanding it. Still Missing the Point I've been pretty … Continue reading Tackling Calvinist Errors on Omniscience & Aseity (Plus a Deductive Proof)

Brian Abasciano’s Article on 1 John 5:1 is Now Available!

Dr. Brian Abscaiano's article critiquing the Calvinist claims on the use of 1 John 5:1 to support regeneration preceding faith is now available online.  While it was initially posted online, it was later  removed because the Journal it was published in did not grant permission for public posting.  However, after a year those rights revert … Continue reading Brian Abasciano’s Article on 1 John 5:1 is Now Available!

Great Follow-up Comments by David Martinez on the Recent Conversation Between James White and Austin Fischer

You can read the post at SEA here. David does a fine job exposing White's spurious debate tactics.  James White has truly made an art out of poisoning the well as Martinez well points out (See post below for more evidence).  And again, we see the tired old assumption that one cannot possibly disagree with … Continue reading Great Follow-up Comments by David Martinez on the Recent Conversation Between James White and Austin Fischer

Five Part Series Responding to C. Michael Patton’s “The Irrationality of Calvinism”

A while back I did a five part series responding to a post by C. Michael Patton entitled, "The Irrationality of Calvinism." I recently noticed that some of the posts in the series did not have links at the bottom directing the reader to the next post in the series, leaving the impression that there … Continue reading Five Part Series Responding to C.

The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacies #14: Conditional Election Makes God a Respecter of Persons?

Related Fallacies: Equivocation John Hendryx, who we've noted has employed numerous fallacies in defense of Calvinism and distortions against Arminianism, is at it yet again. This time he's trying to prove that it's conditional election, not unconditional election, that makes God into a "respecter of persons." Before I address his points, I believe that the … Continue reading The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacies #14: Conditional Election Makes God a Respecter of Persons?

“Saved by Grace”- Through Faith

Not surprisingly, a Calvinist has taken issue with my recent critique of Paul Washer’s arguments for unconditional election.  This Calvinist, who goes by the moniker, “Saved by Grace” (SBG), left a very lengthy and detailed comment after reading my post, rebuking me for misrepresenting Calvinism and for failing to rightly interpret numerous passages of Scripture.  … Continue reading “Saved by Grace”- Through Faith

The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacies #12 & #13: The Arminian View of Divine Foreknowledge Attacks God’s Simplicity and Immutability

Related Fallacies: Conflation Hasty Generalization Oversimplification Tim Prussic attempts to salvage his hopeless case after I pointed out his fallacious reasoning concerning God's aseity. Tim makes a tenuous appeal to divine simplicity; in his words, Now, since, in God, the self-existent One, essence and attributes are identical, his knowledge is of necessity tied in with … Continue reading The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacies #12 & #13: The Arminian View of Divine Foreknowledge Attacks God’s Simplicity and Immutability

The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacy #10: Wait, Now Faith is a “Work?”

Related Fallacies: Equivocation Category Mistake "[Arminianism] denies sola fide (faith alone) by changing the character of faith so that it is basically a work." (Rev. Richard Phillips [Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals], Is Arminianism a Biblical View or Is it Heresy?) "Nay, the doctrine of justification itself, as preached by an Arminian, is nothing but the … Continue reading The Fallacies of Calvinist Apologetics – Fallacy #10: Wait, Now Faith is a “Work?”
