    Exclamation Battle Royale VIII applicants wanted!

    Battle Royale VIII is in the works!

    We are looking for proponents of the closed view for BR VIII. We are looking for someone who thinks that the future is closed either through God's direct ordination or through God's perfect exhaustive foreknowledge.

    Do you think you can defend that view successfully?

    If so... we want you!

    If your interested please post here on this thread why you feel you would be a good participant for BR VIII.

    Also... if you have any questions regarding BRVIII feel free to ask them here.

    cmon cletus, cmon!

    God having knowledge of the future doesn't affect anyone's freedom. Not even Calvinist's say that. For Calvinist's it is based on the decrees of God before the world began.

    I happen to be well read in this subject and know all sides well, even the different views in open theism itself!

    I will go up against open theists, even though I don't fit the definition of a closed theist. Well...for some people I do. Just to warn all the wanna be exegetes. I do have qualifications. I have a Masters of Arts of Religion in Biblical Studies. Bring it on. U G L Y you don't have no alibi. You ugly, you ugly!!!!

    If no one else is willing/able to oppose the open theist doctrine, I would be willing to consider it. However, while you know that I am strongly opposed to open theism, and that I want to take part in a future BR, this is not one of my first-choice topics so to speak. I see Add seems to be willing, but if it falls through with him and there are no other options, PM me and we'll talk Knight. Otherwise, my fingers are crossed for BR IX, and something closer to my heart (OSAS maybe, or some other topics I could think of ...). If I'm going to try to squeeze something like this in with my seminary, I would just rather it be something I'm more interested in defending than this.

    That might be tough to find since, other than for a handful of hyperCalvinists, it appears that neither of these "closed view" options represent the position on omniscience, foreknowledge and free will held by the vast majority of Christians.

    I wouldn't argue either of those positions...

    Good luck!

    If you need someone to tell both sides there both nuts let me know, I will do my best - I will even break my New Years resolution for the sake of the poor misguided souls who think they know something, that they are actually making sense...hteir not - they are nuts.

    Huh???????? Are you kidding?????

    The closed views listed above represent both Calvinists AND Arminians therefore represent the VAST maority of mainstream Christian theology.

    \Knight- I am interested, and feeling a little cantankerous today - hope you forgive me - it is in Matthew - you are suppose to forgive me - in a little while I might be able to post in one of your Battle Royals - when I am a better debater - one topic I would like to see debated is the necessity to view the Bible as the ONLY source of Spiritual knowledge - and this is why I say both sides are at odds with the truth - the truth being is the Bible was never intended to be the definitive source of all Spiritual knowledge, and when taken as such there is simply not enough information to deduce sensible doctrine from.

    Have you ever had this type of topic at Battle Royal?

    Actually, no. I wasn't.

    The closed views listed above represent both Calvinists AND Arminians therefore represent the VAST maority of mainstream Christian theology.
    Why don't you consider Arminians a sub-set of Calvinists? I realize that Arminius himself was soundly condemned by the Calvinist synod in Dort (1618-1619), but he is still rooted in a moderate Calvinism. Even considering them separately, both groups together do not make up a plurality of professing Christians.



    Of course, that depends on how you define the term Christianity, I suppose.
