Just a few minutes ago I hung up the phone, having had a rousing theological discussion with my best friend and discipler. He called to ask me my thoughts on Open Theism, as he’s currently researching for a paper he has to write on the topic, and at one point I made the provocative statement that, although I find Open Theism absurd on multiple levels, I think it is more consistent than Arminianism. By the time the call was over, I had add a new an interesting time travel analogy on my hands, which further convinces me of Calvinism, and which I thought I’d share with you.
I read some recent feedback from listeners and my responses, discussing Oneness Pentecostalism, Israelology and the Calvinist doctrines of Total Depravity and Irresistible Grace.
The first point of Calvinism, the “T” in “TULIP,” stands for “Total Depravity.” We are by nature in opposition to God, in bondage to sin, and will never, left to our own devices, turn to Christ.
In this episode of the Theopologetics Podcast I discuss the sovereignty of God, demonstrating from Scripture that He is not only King over all but that He does what He pleases.
