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!

Like every good origin story, Tim found a wise mentor  who would train him to think logically and to defend the truth of Christianity. All these years later, Stratton and his colleagues at FTM are focused on equipping others to do the same.

Is the Bible Our Highest Authority?

By David Pallmann

Many Christians believe that it is wrong to offer unbelievers evidence for the truth of Christianity.[1] They argue that the traditional method of apologetics dishonors Scripture by not giving it the respect it is due. The concern is that offering evidence for the truth of Scripture gives evidence more weight than Scripture. The argument might … Continue reading Is the Bible Our Highest Authority?

Determinism Refuted Philosophically

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 Ely 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)
