What is Billy Graham’s legacy? Was he an example of faithfulness to the gospel, or did he compromise with false religion and a false gospel? Was Graham a positive example? What does Leighton Flowers’ defence of Billy Graham reveal about his beliefs? What does it reveal about his criticism of Calvinism? Is Pulpit & Pen a reliable source of information? Is the pope of Rome our brother in Christ? Are Roman Catholics saved? What should we make of the claims that Billy Graham’s death is a prophetic sign?
We finish our review of the Houston Free Will debate with a refutation of Leighton Flower’s presentation.
On tonight’s programme we take a look at the debate that took place on the subject of ‘Free Will’, which took place on November 3rd 2017 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, Houston, TX. It featured Theodore Zachariades & Sonny Hernandez (Calvinists) vs Leighton Flowers & Jonathan Pritchett (Traditional Southern Baptist). What can be learned from the debate?
On tonight’s show we look at some of the claims Brannon Howse and Andy Woods have made about Calvinism on Worldview Radio. Do they understand Calvinism? Brannon Howse and Andy Woods have also repeatedly used the term ‘Hyper-Calvinism’ to refer to critics of non-Calvinistic views, but what does the term actually mean? Is the issue important at all?
In a recent article John Piper stated: “we should not speak of getting to heaven by faith alone in the same way we are justified by faith alone.” Has he compromised the gospel? Is it similar to the errors of Norman Shepherd? What did godly Reformed men of the past say on the error taught by Shepherd, and what should be the message to Piper and others like him today? What are the consequences of the Reformed community ignoring modern errors on justification by faith alone?
Note: These are old shows and were done when I was much younger in the Lord, but I hope they can still be a blessing.
