    Rather than waste more time listening for nominations, I'm just going to nominate the people I know here and put it into a poll-like thing. After the poll closes, i'll ask the ones with the most votes if they want to have a formal debate. So check it out- and please vote.

    You need candidates that fully align themselves with either specific doctrine to have a valid debate.

    I do not align with either doctrine.

    i'd have to agree with you there. can't edit the poll now. so i suppose you could just decline and we'd have 4 candidates on the non-calvinist side.

    wow. interestingly enough a lot of folks like old regular. he's in the lead on the calvinist side. Bobryan is still in the lead on the non side.

    humm

    something smells fishy

    if wes was not asked..this makes me wonder if others were asked. were they?

    the last i saw posted was Bob said yes..and no one else had said yes.

    why not just let bob do it?

    I'm ignoring the vote. I wasn't 'pre selected' as a debater. [​IMG]

    No one can debate rc! We don't even speak the same language! [​IMG]

    I have NEVER been a debater and am not a theology student. I can't throw out greek. Truthfully, I'm guessing all the Calvinists voted for ME so the non Calvinist would lose. [​IMG] :eek: [​IMG]

    Nothing against you diane...

    But i never saw the point of a vote. I'm all for fairness...and Bob said he would do it..no one else said they would. Bob can handly himself. I say let him have it.

    I bring up the other points...of having both sides help in this. For if not...one side will always cry "unfair".

    If it was me in the ring..i would rather have 3-4 on the other side..with only me and my bible. just so as not to hear all the crying after it is over.

    can i have a high 5????

    hehe...(BIG DAWG...HAS BIG WORDS)

    Bob Ryan is Seventh Day Adventist. I'd guess his winning or losing wouldn't hold much water on a Baptist Board.

    I'd suggest Pastor_Bob as the non Calvinist advocate and Pastor Larry as the Calvinist. Both are ministers and both are moderators so would remain within all rules. (Plus I think Pastor_Bob would win quite easily ;) )

    Seventh Day Adventist? well that explains the works salvation.

    sorry..i didn't know.

    Pastor larry said he was out...but i think it was more because Bob said he would debate....and larry as been around with Bob to many times. but larry can speak for himself.

    I don't know pastor bob to well. i have seen a few post, by him, but not many.

    If you uphold him, i'm sure he is a good debater

    I would like to see how the last few posts resolve before going too far along those lines.

    How does "Adventist" disqualifiy from "Arminian"?

    Is there some argument I have used here -- that was not "sola-scriptura"??

    The only place I saw where a difference could have existed was on the ONE exposed point of a few Arminians - which is the problem of being Arminian AND holding to OSAS.

    I have seen Calvinists expose the inconsitency in some Arminians who hold to both at once. Since I do not hold to that view - the Calvinists don't have that as an option when I debate them.

    I thought "that" would be the big difference - but then I noticed other Arminians here who also figured that one out and closed the gap.

    So what "else"? I have not seen anything on this board that tries to discount my Arminian views "because I am Adventist" --

    (OR did I miss a post?)

    In Christ,

    Bob

    If it's going to be a true Calvinist vs. Arminian debate, both debaters should be "5-pointers," IMO.

    I'd have no problem with BobRyan debating for the Arminian side. Just require the debate to be sola-scriptura, and the problem is solved.
