Bel0w is a recent video extreme Calvinist, James White, posted critiquing New Orleans professor, Adam Harwood, in a message Dr. Harwood preached entitled "The Gospel: a Message for Every Person." As the listener will note, White gets stuck on the term "simplistic" and just won't let go (by the way, if somebody will count the times White uses the term "simplistic" and log it below, I'll gladly send them a Starbucks gift card!). Thus, apparently suggesting as Harwood does that since God loves every person and wants every person to be saved, He therefore sent Christ as a sacrificial Lamb to die for every person is nothing more or less than sub-biblical simplicity. White makes clear that "the Biblical view" is his view--strict Limited Atonement. According to White, when it comes to the atoning work of Christ, there is either a) the Reformed view or b) universalism. Everything else is sub-biblical and incoherent--just that simple, claims White.
For the first time in my dealings with White, I had a moment when I sorta felt sorry for him in this critique. For starters, something was evidently hanging above his head for he continued looking up while verbalizing his responses. Second, it apparently did not connect with him as he was speaking about Bruce Ware of Southern seminary that Ware's views collide head-on with White's views on the atonement. In fact, according to White's own framing of the issue (i.e.there is either a) the Reformed view or b) universalism. Everything else is sub-biblical and incoherent--just that simple), Bruce Ware is both sub-biblical and incoherent--just that simple.
Finally, as I've often shown on this site, James White once again proves that he's apparently more concerned about being consistent and rational than he is about biblical revelation. Because he's an apologist, "I have to be Reformed" he thunders, "I have to be consistent." So far as I am concerned, translated, that means rationalism precedes revelation.
