Thanks for the Debate and Transcript Thanks for the debate and transcript. I believe it will be a blessing to others. I almost become a JW. This subject has a personal touch to me. I like in this exchange between the two men is that key issues where brought up.
MacArthurâ€™s comment on postmil In regards to John MacArthurâ€™s comment mentioning postmil and prosperity gospel, I believe he was connecting the two because prosperity churches in the NAR (Bethel, Hillsong) hold to a form of postmil/dominionism where they strive to â€śruleâ€ť culture in politics, religion, entertainment, etc
Great Sermon! White seems to be unaware that his show on on SermonAudio is always first ranked. If he realized that all he has to do is put in a regular 2-3 hour show per day, he would reach millions, his show would be number one, and he could have advertisers and make a good income for doing the Lord's work. He can make anything fascinating, and that is a rare gift. Also, I can't get through a week without him. He's an addiction.
Great Sermon! Oddly enough, after James graciously answers each question with logic and wisdom, they move on. This is the way of liberalism. Accuse and make false claims, but when logic is used, nope donâ€™t wanna respond.
Great Sermon! I was so surprised to see that this happened that I HAD to listen to this. My favorite modern day theologian talking to the lead singer of one of my all-time favorite bands; it was a must listen! Now I need to watch this DL on YouTube. Skillet is an awesome band, and I've been blessed to see them live in concert three times in my life, the last time was last fall in Grand Rapids. Thankfully I went because now I'm not even sure when there will be another opportunity to see them again. The first time I saw them live was back in 2008 and I had the opportunity to talk to the band but I didn't (I regret that).
I could go on and on, but I want to thank you Dr. White for doing this and encourage you to have John on again soon. Another great hard rock Christian band to check out while you're climbing the mountains on your bicycle is Disciple. Kevin Young is the lead singer and he's an awesome guy committed to the Lord as well.
But seriously, bring John Cooper back on again, and if possible, have the whole band come on. Jen Ledger (drums) is an amazing drummer and it's awesome watching her pound on the drums on stage. Something happened to her at the concert that I went to last fall, but she went back to drumming within a few minutes.
Anyways, this was great! Please do it again
Great Sermon! Dr White did a good job of answering Adrian Rogers and pointing out he is describing an unbiblical God... The biblical God is not weak and unknowing . He is omniscient and has no reason to die for everyone on the planet when he knows that sort of atonement would not be effectual. Iâ€™m suppose to believe Christ died for everyone as an offer when Romans 9:16 particularly says point blank to the contrary and Romans 9 is totally clear God is Totally Sovereign and free from manâ€™s will and John 6:29 says faith is a work of God and John 3:8 says the Spirit blows where He desires ...The Arminian God is not Totally Sovereign but the Biblical God is because John 6:37-40 is true
Great Sermon! Thank you!
What I understood from your debate with Dr Brown
Dr. Brown - God is Totally Sovereign but not free of manâ€™s will (oxymoron to me)
Dr White- God is Totally Sovereign free of manâ€™s will
I think free will was what the serpent was selling in the Garden of Eden and became inherent in natural manâ€™s nature... I think God gave them the delusion they were seeking
Great Sermon! Very well done!!! ...keeping to the biblical text
Question about my understanding of Romans 9:11 and in conjunction with Romans 9:21,22
If Godâ€™s choosing Jacob and Esau was unconditional, then his making vessels of mercy and those fitted out for destruction in 9:21,22 ... must be unconditional to be consistent in the text. God is making both vessels out of the same lump. The verb in the verse is make vessels of mercy and (make) vessels to dishonor
Learning Hebrew/Greek I fully agree with what James said regarding learning English (or your native language) grammar before learning Hebrew / Greek.
When I started learning Hebrew I ended up having to learn English grammar. Because I was learning online so there were no deadlines and I wasn't trying to keep up with a class it wasn't really and issue. However it was a bit frustrating because I wasn't expecting to have to do that.
And yes, it is worth while. I didn't end up learning much vocabulary, because I don't want to read it, however I have have a familiarity with both languages now so that when a pastor mentions somethings about that language I have a better understanding of what they are talking about and if needed I can always check it up.
