Of all the doctrines of biblical Christianity, aka: historic Calvinism do you think is most hated? And, what is your reason for your choice? scratchchin

Thursday, December 1, 2016 5:37 AM "Give Yourself Wholly to Them" by J.C. Ryle by Pilgrim

This month's article is the 3rd installment of J.C. Ryle's Warning to the Churches which is an exposition and application of 1Tim 4:15.

Quote:
There are those, of whom their congregations have said, that when they were in the pulpit—they were so good, that never wished them to come out; and when they went out of the pulpit—they were so bad, they never wished them to go in! May God give us all grace to take that to heart! May we seek so to live, so to preach, so to work, so to give ourselves wholly to the business of our calling, that this bitter remark may never be made about us.

Although Ryle is addressing men who are given to the pastoring of churches, much of what he writes is also applicable to everyone who professes to be a believer in the Lord Christ. It is often said that ministers/pastors/elders are to be held to a higher standard. But, is this actually possible? For our God requires of all, without exception, believer and unbeliever, to be perfect, holy as He is perfect and holy. But in the administration of the offices of the church some unique things are also required of those men who are to be an example to those among whom they labor.

May the Spirit use this article to conform us all more and more into the image of Christ in our pilgrimage on this earth.

I watched the following debate and thought it was worth posting here.
White does a really good job in my opinion upholding God's sovereignty. I saw the same atheist White debated against an Arminian apologist. Where the Arminian used a free-will argument and the atheist clearly used it to his advantage.

Sunday, November 27, 2016 5:57 PM TULIP by Tom


I realize that TULIP actually was formed as doctrinal system at Dort in 1618-1619. However, some claim (and I believe falsely) that Calvin himself would not embrace TULIP.
In the past I believe this subject has been discussed on the Highway; but I am not sure where to find it.
Can I either get directed to where it was discussed; or give me your thoughts on the matter?
Thanks
Tom

Thinking further on the Trinity Debate
Admittedly as I read various material written pro and con about Bruce Ware and Grudem’s understanding of the Trinity; I feel the matter is somewhat above my pay grade.
However, if I understand one of the most fundamental issues of the debate, it is that some believe that Grudem in their belief in the ESS must affirm three wills within the Trinity.
Dr. Albert Mohler has stated that he believes to believe that the Trinity has three wills, would be heresy. Yet, he defends Ware and Grudem, saying that although he disagrees with Ware and Grudem about ESS; he does not believe they are claiming to believe in three wills within the Trinity. Therefore, he says that the charge of heresy goes too far. See: http://www.albertmohler.com/2016/06/28/heresy/
In response to this, two rebuttals to Dr. Albert Mohler were made that agree with Dr. Albert Mohler about it being a heresy if Ware and Grudem were actually teaching three wills in the Trinity. Yet, if I understand the proof they give, they show that this is exactly what both Ware and Grudem affirm.

I will say that, as I look at the debate, I can’t help but wonder about a few things.
Several people who have been avid supporters of Ware and Grudem over the years in their Complementarian views; who have always used ESS in support of Complementarianism. Have now cried heresy concerning their views and it makes me wonder why.
