Dr. King: Freedom & Free Thinking

Recently I’ve been working my way through Victor Reppert’s “C.S Lewis Dangerous Idea.” In Reppert’s book, he draws from C.S.

Ephesians 1:4: How Calvinistic Exegesis is Logically Impossible

In another article found on FreeThinkingMinistries.com, Tim Stratton has argued why “Calvinism is Impossible.” By “impossible” Stratton means logically impossible when held alongside other essential Christian doctrines. I would like to continue in that line of thought and examine a common Calvinistic proof text. Consider Ephesians 1:4 (KJV): According as he hath chosen us in him before … Continue reading Ephesians 1:4: How Calvinistic Exegesis is Logically Impossible
