I think Kurt may end up being Calvinist in the near future.
God does not determine all evil


James 1:13 ¶ Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
James 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

1Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Job 34:10 ¶ Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
Job 34:11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
Job 34:12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

I just discovered a good response by Leighton Flowers to that video, seen above, in which he does a good job of refuting Doug Wilson's argument against freewill, and for Calvinistic determinism. Leighton Flowers has learned from his mistakes, and he doesn't interrupt so much as he used to do, or waffle so much as he normally does. So overall it is a good response.

Hey, I watched that Live! I regularly watch Marlon Wilson's The Gospel Truth; as a matter of Fact, a Calvinism Debate comes on tonight!

Hint; if you want your questions asked, Super Chats get put at the head of the Line. I had a few great questions, but I was unable to Super Chat, so Q+A time ran out for me. Matt Slick is often on The Gospel Truth, so you ought to check it out...
