    Thank you Sam for participating in this debate. This is a topic that needs to be discussed in great detail. It was great to hear both points of view.

    I want to publicly thank Sam for his effort in Battle Royale X so I will post the email I sent to him after his portion of the debate was over.....We at TOL are blessed that great guys such as Sam and Bob took the time (a TON of time) to create such an awesome debate!
    Knight and others,

    Thanks very much for your kind words. I will be pointing many students to this debate, both as help in understanding the OV and as help in understading rhetoric. Thanks for the opportunity to be here. Blessings,

    Sam Lamerson

    I want to thank you most of all for your attitude in the debate. You maintained a level of Christian integrity that was admirable. I'm sorry you did not have the time needed to fully develop some of your ideas earlier in the debate. I found some of the later posts to be quite interesting. Thanks again for your participation.
    Blessings of Peace,Chileice

    Thank you both for taking the time to debate this issue.
    Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being, declares the Lord.

    I was led to believe that 5-point Calvinists believe there is no free will. Dr. Lamerson said:
    Before starting to attempt toprove that God does indeed know the future actions of free agents...
    Would he still fall in the aforementioned category?

    This statement is consistent with Calvinism. Calvinists believe in future free agents.

    My apologies. My only knowledge of Calvinism is from a "discussion" I had with a TOL poster named "Christine." She stated that humans had absolutely no free will.

    Well, knowing future free agents is different from saying that we believe in free-will. I would say that Calvinists, particularly myself, dismiss the traditional definition of free-will. I believe that the unregenerate man's will is in subjection to Satan, however, this does not mean that unregenerate man is not still responsible for his depravity. I believe the Elect (Christians) are in Christ and therefore in subjection to Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God.

    Basically, Calvinists feel that humans can think, reason, use logic, etc. We just dismiss the traditional definition of it. In fact, I hardly even use the phrase free-will anymore.
