LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

From the opening paragraph...

The admission of an anti-Calvinist - "He all but admits that there is no good argument against Calvinism that does not presuppose the falsity of key Calvinist tenants. He all but admits that the Calvinist can answer the strongest charge leveled against them by other Christians: the problem of evil."
===============
>"there is no good argument against Calvinism that does not presuppose the falsity of key Calvinist tenants."<
I think we have all seen that to be true. One MUST resort to mischaracterizing Calvinism in order to argue against it, else there are no arguments.

That is why I frequently ask anti DoG folks to restate my position back to me. When they do it is ALWAYS litered with falsity, nothing more than a twisted and skewed restatement. Let's face it that's all they've got.

Hi Mark,

You copied and pasted the address that takes you to the start of the "comments." If you click on the title of the post, then you'll have the correct link.

Notice the difference. Your link is this:

(1) http://triablogue.blogspot.com/2008/06/calvinism-vs-arminianism.html#comments

The one you want would be:

(2) http://triablogue.blogspot.com/2008/06/calvinism-vs-arminianism.html

(1) Has the word "comments" in it, (2) does not.

If you would like to change it you can copy and past the address in (2) into your blog entry.

(if any of the above appears cut off, don't worry, just copy what shows up and when you paste it the entire address will show up)

Best,

Paul

P.S. Thanks for the link.

Mark,
Good resource. Thanks for posting it.

Could it be Antonio is recovering from the battle scars his EFGT suffered at the Moor recently?

Wayne, Antonio is single-handedly responsible for the the "boffow" numbers in my sitemeter these past couple days. Do you think that with all those vistits that he would at least stop in to say "hi"?

I think it really funny the way you people hate each other's guts!

I am quite a frequent visitor to Liver and Onions.

Surely an almighty omnipotent heavenly father wouldn't have created a world in which there was such disharmony among those who consider themselves to be elected!

Maalie,
I must remind you that you have twice left debates when the weakness of your position were exposed. IOW, you tucked your tail and ran.........

Now you like to engage in hit and run slander. The liver and onion guy does seem to be full of hate. His theology is also wrong and I am glad that you are a frequent visitor there. He deserves it!

>I must remind you that you have twice left debates

How can I leave a debate when there is none? You are bound by the doctrines of a 2000 year old book, full of errors, mistranslations and superstitions.

You are not free to debate, you have already been brainwashed.

I could find a link to it if you don't remember... but one time you asked me to relate your position back to you and I did. You then told me I had it right. Remember?

Blogger mark pierson said...

Yes, dear sister, I do remember that. However, in that same thread, after that, you went ahead to misrepresent DoG in a dialogue with Wayne - and I came back to share my disappointment because for a minute there you were showing so much promise only to revert back to your old arguments.

Do you also remember that part? My observation in this thread, therefore, stands.

Blogger mark pierson said...

The anti DoG argument never advances. No mater how often they are set straight they ALWAYS revert back to their original arguments, never acknowledging that they have been corrected. That, in my books, amounts to dishonesty.
