Tim Stratton’s Origin Story
In this short video Tim Stratton explains why he, as a youth pastor, felt led to dive into the deeper waters of apologetics. These events did not just transform Stratton’s life, but also provided the catalyst which ultimately launched FreeThinking Ministries!
Dear KPS School Board, In a sense, it is your job to “legislate” morality. The question is: whose morality are you going to force upon the people – and the children – of Kearney, NE? Where do you get your morality? From where do you decide how to legislate how the citizens of Kearney ought … Continue reading The “Theory” of Critical Racists
Philip Swenson was recently interviewed by Jordan Hampton on the Analytic Christian YouTube channel. Although Swenson’s goal was to argue against Molinism, I must admit that the two of us have much in common. Swenson, for example, is a fellow libertarian freedom fighter. On this vital issue we both agree and stand side by side … Continue reading Dr. Strange, Dr. Stratton, and Dr. Swenson
Question Dear Dr. Stratton, JD Martin has said that saying “exhaustive Divine determinism” (EDD) is redundant (“they don’t know what they’re talking about” he says) because on determinism everything is causally determined (I tend to agree it is redundant). I know that you have sought to make a distinction as you explain “Mere Molinism”, etc. … Continue reading 3 Reasons Why Exhaustive Divine Determinism (EDD) Is Not Redundant

Drs. Leighton Flowers, Braxton Hunter, and Tim Stratton (Team USA) come together to refute the French Calvinistic philosopher, Guillaume Bignon’s most recent broadcast on the Revealed Apologetic broadcast hosted by Eli Ayala, in which Bignon brings arguments against Flowers, Hunter, and Stratton’s libertarian perspectives (click here).
Bignon affirms “Theistic Determinism,” the audacious belief that God causally determines all things, including all your choices, desires, thoughts, beliefs, and actions; but yet, mysteriously we are still morally and rationally accountable for those choices, desires, thoughts, beliefs, and actions (ie “Calvinistic Compatibilism”).
Our response is divided into three parts:
Part 1: Determinism refuted Biblically (Hosted by Dr. Flowers at Soteriology 101)
Part 2: Determinism refuted Theologically (Hosted by Dr. Hunter at Trinity Radio)
Part 3: Determinism refuted Philosophically (Hosted by Dr. Stratton at Free Thinking Ministries)
