A couple months ago, I wrote an article that entailed my responses to eight supposed reasons for paedobaptism. These “reasons” were all proposed by a brother in Christ which led to some great discussion. Just as I did with the first eight, I intend to show why these seven additional reasons (#9 thru #16) aren’t... Continue Reading →
Van Tillian Inconsistency
I want to start off by saying that I fall into the “presup” camp when it comes to apologetics. I find the position to be most consistent with Scripture (which I am not seeking to defend in this article). However, I find problems among those in the camp and even with some of Van Til’s...

This subject was brought up in a recent episode of The Particular... Continue Reading →
Does Genesis 6 Actually Prove Total Depravity?
In defending the Calvinist doctrine of Total Depravity, I’ve seen some pushback on a frequently used prooftext. Genesis 6:5, which describes the reasoning behind God’s decision to destroy the world, reads as follows: And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his...
