UPDATE: James White wasted no time firing off a you-sir-are-a-liar post on his blog (//link). As I expected, he implies I not only doctored the video, but also made him say things he didn't say. Frankly, it's possible I misunderstood what he intended to mean in his wording. Granted. But White's skewed logic has no such place for misinterpretation. Instead, it's "you, sir are a liar!"
What's humorous is, in White's "correction" of my interpretation of his words, he inadvertently misquotes himself! But if White can't get White right, how can he criticize me for not getting him right? Is White lying about himself? That's what one could very well conclude if one were to follow White's inevitable you-sir-are-a-liar strategy.
In August 2008, Jerry Vines preached a sermon on the campus of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary entitled, “The Inexhaustible Love of God,” a sermon based upon the familiar text, John 3:16 (link below). If you have not listened in entirety, I encourage you to download the MP3 and be blessed.
Reformed apologist and hyper-Calvinist James White critiqued Dr. Vines’ sermon on God’s inexhaustible love. Below is an excerpt from White’s critique. Without one doubt in my mind, White makes one of the most absurd statements I’ve yet to encounter from Internet Calvinists.
I challenge every reader to listen to Vines’ sermon and see if he argues his case from “emotionalism” and or “tradition” as White implies or if Vines exegetically delivered a thoroughly biblical message from John 3:16 (//download Vines’ message here).
Even more, when hyper-Calvinists like James White pronounce the most basic, fundamental attribute of our Lord—His love--to be a “dangerous” subject upon which to preach, we have to wonder what loose screw invited him to teach in one of our seminaries.
With that, I am…
