      Ergun Caner vs. James White on "Hyper"-Calvinism
      (Radio Free Geneva Youtube Series)

      Sunday, July 20, 2008

      This is the first episode of Radio Free Geneva that has been put on Youtube. The purpose of RFG is to dispel the many caricatures, straw men, and misrepresentations that those who are opposed to Reformed Theology (ie. Calvinism) normally make when critiquing the other side. Lord willing, there will be more in the future that deal with different subjects.

      Ergun Caner delivered a sermon a few years ago called "Why I am Predestined Not to be a Hyper-Calvinist." However, many Reformed folk thought the sermon would have been more aptly titled "Why I am Not Predestined to Represent the Side I am Critiquing Accurately." In this episode of Radio Free Geneva, James White deals with the many straw men and mischaracterizations that Ergun Caner promoted during this sermon and rectifies them. This episode is especially helpful because many of the arguments Caner brought up are many of the same that are brought up regularly by opponents of the doctrines of grace.

      Thanks Lane for the hard work in putting this together. Having done video editing before, I can appreciate the effort and patience needed.

      Just a comment - I don't understand why the Arminian thinks the "babies going to hell" card is such a blow to Calvinism. Isn't it more logical, that if your theology is based upon the total free-will of man as the basis for salvation, that all babies must therefore go to hell in that system as they can't possibly express the faith needed - and God wouldn't want to interfere with that babies free will now would He?
