    Jordan Cooper's Misconceptions of Provisionism

    25/05/2020 Duration: 01h52min

    Dr. Jordan Cooper, a Lutheran Pastor, recently produced a video (seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwgxb...) critiquing Dr. Leighton Flowers’ video on total moral inability from birth (seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egxHq...)

    Blind By Birth Or By Choice?

    11/05/2020 Duration: 15min

    In this short 15 min video, Dr. Leighton Flowers, Director of Evangelism and Apologetics for Texas Baptists, confronts the Calvinistic doctrine of Total Inability, the idea that all people are born spiritually blind due to God's sovereign decree and thus have no moral ability to respond positively to God's own gracious appeals to be reconciled. Looking at Paul's own sermon in Acts 28 (when some in the audience are convinced but others would not believe) reveals a lot about the natural condition of man in light of the gospel appeal.   For more about innate "spiritual deadness" watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4t9Pa...   For more about the accusation of Pelagianism or Semi-Pelagianism, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1leI...   For more about how to support Soteriology 101 please go here: https://soteriology101.com/support/

    Ken Wilson Rebuts James White

    05/05/2020 Duration: 02h19min

    Dr. Leighton Flowers welcomes back Dr. Ken Wilson to defend his Oxford Thesis from over 15 hours of mostly fallacious and unfounded attacks by Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries. The Common Misconceptions in this Debate So Far: 1. Wilson's argument rests on Manicheanism and Augustinianism being the same worldview: This is untrue. It is not at all unreasonable to suggest that just one aspect of Manicheanism (i.e. its adherence to theistic determinism) might have influenced Augustine's interpretation of the scripture. 2. Wilson is saying Augustinianism is untrue because of its similarities with Manicheanism: This is inaccurate. It is possible for false worldviews to adhere to some aspects of truth, therefore proving that Calvinism has some link to Manicheanism doesn't prove Calvinism is false. Wilson is saying Augustinianism is not rooted or founded in the early church writings therefore it most likely originated from other gnostic, neoplatonic and Manichean roots, which brings into question its vali
