  2. Should Christians Debate?

    I was recently asked What is your individual policy on engaging in internet debate?

    My response follows....

    One must be a good steward of the time God grants them (Ephesians 5:15; Ecclesiastes 11:9; Mark 12:30). The time granted should be spent bringing glory to God in word, deed, or thought.

    Not a day passes that some enthusiastic anti-Calvinist lays the charge that we Reformed are followers of the words of men, especially John Calvin.

    It is quite simple for me. As do all Reformed, I hold Scripture to be the
