Not too accurate First of all, I appreciate the zeal & passion of Pastor Jack, he is concerned about his congregation & wants them to study the scriptures, I love to hear a Christian pastor have that drive & that zeal. And as a Creationist as well, I'm glad to hear that Pastor Jack affirms the teachings of Genesis,
I was glad to see he had knowledge in the area, he mentioned the trees over in Spirit Lake, dino tissue, the flood, etc. & I rejoice to see that, but I do have some disagreements with him.
1. Calvinist & the Bible
Throughout the sermon he says, "[Calvinist have] "Zeal without knowledge theyâ€™ve believed the words of men rather than the word of Godâ€ť
â€śTheyâ€™re not following scriptureâ€ť
â€śThey are proof texting like the cultsâ€ť
This is not true, I was brought to Calvinism by reading the scriptures, I try to follow scripture in every area of my life, & let's be honest, all of us proof text at times, when witnessing to the cults we prooftext, but if we have time, we try to walk through the chapter(s)
2. General accusations.
â€śCalvinists have perverted the gospelâ€ť "Rely on the scholars" This is kinda the KJVonly mindset, and it's not good.
3. Concerning all.
All does not always mean all, Look at Mark 1:5, becuase the Pharisees certainly were not baptized by John.
