    1. I really don't agree with John MacArthur's brand of Lordship Salvation.

    2. I don't read a lot of dead theologians of the calvinistic bent.

    3. I'm not big on the ESV (English Standard Version)

    I won't be surprised if they show me the door.

    When I first saw the OP title and then who wrote it I was like.. huh??

    Then after reading it I couldn't help but laugh. :thumbs:

    You are quite funny sometimes TC.

    1. No one has to agree with men, but with God, unquestioned obedience.

    2. What dead theologians do you read? lol

    3. What does the ESV have to do with Calvinism?

    Who is they and why would "they" be showing you the door?

    1. So that means you are in the camp,but don't subscribe to all his particular nuances? Do you favor Michael Horton's view as a more accurate summation of the biblical evidence,or the writings of someone else?

    2. You should. You're missing out.

    3. Yeah, those ESV-Only Reformed guys are out on a tear,aren't they?

    1 I don't know much about his brand so I neither agree nor disagree

    2 I Love the Dead guy's (Owen is my favorite) can't read'em enough

    3 I have an ESV but rarely use it

    and Door what door? I don't see no door. Where is it?
    What is behind it? It must be a glass door. :laugh:

    I'll just comment on 2 today because I am feeling kinda impish.... lol

    Ok, here goes...

    Here it comes from my calvinist upbringing....


    (tiny clears throat)

    "Let me get this straight, you don't read anything from the Apostle Paul?"


    :laugh:

    (Does that sound like a Calvinist or what?)

    One good reason why I don't make a good Calvinist : It ain't Biblical. :type:

    I've always sensed that you had too open a mind and not enough of Saul's "firey breath" to be Calvinist, TC. :laugh: Saul was probably a Calvinist before the "road to Emaus."

    Paul became a Calvinist at the time of his Damascus Road experience.

    Pauline = Calvinist

    Another synonym lesson.

    What does the "road to Emmaus" have to do with Saul/Paul? Or was that a slip of your keystroke?

    That's a throw-away line if I've ever heard one.I think you need to develop your position a bit more comprehensively Goldie.

    Hey Rippon,
    I have already done that - extensively - on another thread. Don't ask me which one though - can't remember. I went through the 5 points of Calvinism (TULIP) and refuted them by providing Scriptural proof.

    Do you want me to give another refutation of Calvinism? :type: I don't mind, really, but just not today as I'm tired. :tonofbricks:

    WOW! You single-handedly knocked-out that dreaded Calvinist monster? It didn't make headlines out here in Korea-land.

    You're right about the Damascus road. I guess I was subconsciously wishing that you would have an Emaus road experience, rip, where, as I spoke to you about Christ, your heart would "burn" within you. :laugh: Fat chance, right?
