How Do You Handle An Angry Arminianist?

This is simply too funny. Or sad. I’m not sure at this point. I guess it all depends on how you look at these things…….

Believe me when I tell you this; this type of depiction occurs nearly everywhere you look and it isn’t just limited to the Calvinist/Arminian debate either. Continue reading

Should We Be Nice Guys in Matters of Doctrine?

I saw this posting this morning and it’s short and sweet and to the point. I’m not going to link to this site but will publish it in its entirety and maybe interact with it and allow you to interact with it as well.

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

SOLA SCRIPTURA VS. SOLA ECCLESIA

Dr. Kenneth Talbot has agreed to publically debate Mr. Roderick Edwards for misrepresenting the Reformed doctrine of “Sola Scriptura” and replacing it with the doctrine of “Sola Ecclesia” which is revealed in his written mantra of “2000 years of church history cannot be wrong.” Just like the Roman Catholic Church in the time of the Reformation who challenged the Reformers with chanting the same mantra as Edwards, “1500 years of church history cannot be wrong.” Dr. Talbot will oppose the system of theology held by Mr. Edwards who has taken up the cause of Rome in propagating a false doctrine and promoting the cause of an apostate religion.

Thus we have a debate like unto Luther or Calvin (Talbot) and Eck & Rome (Edwards). Below are the affirmations of the two candidates.
