Is Total Depravity Biblical?
In this debate, J.D. Martin and myself consider the T in TULIP in light of Scripture, Reformed and Roman Catholic tradition. This is my first formal debate, but I did my best to tackle the issue in love, staying on topic and exegeting the Scriptures.
Note: For those of you complaining of the treatment I received, I appreciate your concern but took no offense. This is a debate and things can get messy and often comments can offend which were not intended, or things may be said on the fly which would not have been otherwise. Mr. Martin felt some of his comments and actions during the debate were out of line and publicly apologized, something I didn't think was necessary but nevertheless welcomed. I would happily debate Mr. Martin again and hope we may spur each other, and others, to better know the Lord and Scripture.
Our host, Marlon, who runs The Gospel Truth, was friendly and kept me on task when I stepped over our time limit - as he should have! I had an absolute blast and enjoyed our conversations before, during and after the debate. For anyone considering engaging in a moderated theological debate I cannot recommend him and his program enough.
