Paul's Passing Thoughts

The Science of Debating a Calvinist; What You Must Know, Part 1

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on June 11, 2016


Today 6/11/2016 Live @ 3:00 pm. Live Program Link:

Sometime prior to the airing on 5/28/2016, I took part in a pre-recorded Q and A with Reformed theologian Dr. James White. This was hosted by Justin Brierley of the UK radio show “Unbelievable” on Premier Christian radio.

The host rightly identified our contention with the Protestant Reformation: the false gospel of progressive justification. During the Q and A, Dr. James White used deceptive communication techniques common among Reformed scholars.

The purpose of this program is to identify those techniques, and the substance of his false gospel.

Prior to the Q and A, the host and James White were presented with the following memo:

    Roberts—“The force of the grace of adoption summons thee adopted to live out of that grace and not to turn their backs on it. Adoption is never only a completed event of the past, but is an enduring reality enjoyed by those who continue to receive it. Adoption is much less about its initial reception than it is about its lifelong reception. The faith water baptism calls for is not present faith so much as future faith.”

    Roberts—“Martin Luther’s resistance to the ‘linear model’ of the Christian life, with an one time conversion followed by progress beyond that point. Luther maintained that we never move beyond the point of water baptism. . Conversion is an ongoing reality in the Christian life, a continual act of going back to water baptism as the beginning. The efficacy of water baptism day after day makes death and resurrection a reality that has not yet been fully accomplished IN US.”

      Thank you for these two excellent examples from a reformed scholar. They perfectly illustrate the doctrine of Progressive Justification. You have eloquently illustrated the point of the article!

        Right, normally we would not post these comments because they violate our moderation policy; specifically, per the Reformed way of communication, Mark does not address one point in the article as stated, but totally dismisses the grammatical reality from which they come and answers with a non-answer by the copy-and-paste-speak of Protestant orthodoxy. However, due to the fact that these comments lack the usual nuance associated with orthodoxy and plainly state the false gospel of progressive justification, his comments serve our purpose.
