Paul's Passing Thoughts

Paul Washer’s Objective Gateway to Infinite Subjectivity and Ambiguity

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on February 22, 2012

The Gospel Coalition has a sub-website called the “Objective Gospel.” Sound familiar? Does it remind you of “the centrality of the objective gospel”? That was the Australian Forum’s core doctrine, and Robert Brinsmead claims that the doctrine was original with them as far as being rediscovered truth from the original Reformation.

One of the tenets of the Forum was the idea that knowledge about the gospel of justification was infinite because it is about the person of Jesus Christ and not data. By the way, this is also the position of the Emergent Church that New Calvinists pretend to be against. It starts with the objective idea that the Bible is about justification only, but then proceeds to say that knowledge of it is infinite—clearly paving the way to teach anything they want to; such as, the total depravity of the saints, the scream of the damned, repentance from good works, etc.

Notice also that the name of the video is “rediscovering the gospel.”
