Paul's Passing Thoughts

This Is What Happens When You Challenge a Calvinist

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Young, PPT contributing editor on September 27, 2016

What follows is an exchange I had with a former Facebook “friend”.  This conversation went the way every conversation goes with those who hold to Reformed/Calvinist theology.  Take note of the following:

  1. An appeal to authority over reason
  2. “Ad hominem” attacks versus rational discussion
  3. The equivocation of orthodoxy with the “gospel”

The irony is that while Jason references “religious control freaks” in his post, he engages in the same kind of behavior.

Protestant orthodoxy is rooted in the same metaphysical premise as Platonism.  You will never win a debate with a Calvinist because he begins with different assumptions about man and about reality.  All his interpretive conclusions are based on these assumptions.  The only thing you can do is expose the false teaching and faulty reasoning and allow others to come to their own conclusions.

I think the exchange below speaks for itself.
