Genuine Christian Apostasy Debate

June 26, 2008

I’m pleased to announce that a debate between J.C. Thibodaux and myself on the topic of the Perseverance of the Saints. JCT will be the affirmative in the debate, affirming a resolution that denies that the doctrine of the Perseverance of the Saints is consistent with Scripture. I will be the negative, defending PotS as consistent with Scripture.

Here’s a link to the debate in general (link).

Here’s a link to JCT’s opening (link) (and the mirror at his own website).
Here’s a link to my opening (link).

May this examination of God’s word be edifying both to the debaters and the readers,

Challenge to J.C. Thibodaux

April 6, 2008

Those who have been following along at Triablogue may be aware of a non-Reformed writer who has presented what he calls a challenge to Reformed theology. To summarize the challenge, he believes that these three passages pose a problem for Reformed theology:

Matthew 5:27-30;
Hebrews 4:9-11; and
Revelation 22:18-19.

His reasoning is that Reformed theology denies that genuine believers can eventually go to hell, and that the passages above contradict that denial.

JCT’s challenge is available here (link).

Now, JCT has been engaged in various posts over at Triablogue, as follows, as well is in the comment boxes both in those posts (in some cases) and other posts.

Nevertheless, perhaps JCT still believes that there is life in his challenge. Perhaps he still does not appreciate the full consistence of Reformed theology with each of the passages above.

If so, I want to challenge him to a written debate on the subject at my debate blog. If he is interested, we can work out the debate details according to mutual preference. I don’t think it would need to be a very long or complicated debate, so – while I am busily preparing for another debate at the moment – it may be possible to fit it in immediately.

J.C. Thibodaux, the ball is in your court.
