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.

Rocks in Socks: The Art of Asking Clever Questions

Since publishing Human Freedom, Divine Knowledge, and Mere Molinism in October of 2020, almost every day I have dialoged with determinists. They are either theological determinists (typically Calvinists) who are seemingly committed to exhaustive divine determinism (EDD) or they are scientific determinists (typically naturalists/atheists) who believe that all things about humanity are ultimately causally determined … Continue reading Rocks in Socks: The Art of Asking Clever Questions

A Mad Scientist and a Pop Quiz: A Case for Freedom

Suppose a mad scientist while you were sleeping gained access to your brain, implanted special microchips, and now has the ability and opportunity to exhaustively control (causally determine) all of your thoughts and beliefs all the time. Although you are unaware, the mad scientist now has control over exactly what you think of and about … Continue reading A Mad Scientist and a Pop Quiz: A Case for Freedom

God is NOT a Deity of Deception

Question Dr. Tim, You recently shared a Facebook post high-lightning the Apostle Paul’s words in 1st Corinthians 10:15. It reads: “I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say.” You then added the following: “Be a FreeThinker.

At least one premise in a circular argument depends upon the truth of the conclusion, making the argument lose any justifying force.

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 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)
