Reasonable Christian: Re: Charlie: My Conversion to the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace and My Departure from the Arminian/Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement

This is a rather lengthy response to an e-mail message asking why I think that the Five Points of the Canons of Dort "work for me".  Notice the author of the e-mail places authority in subjectivism and not in the objective revelation of Scripture, which is fully inspired of God.  The fact is the issue is not pragmatism, which is an American phenomenon, but special revelation and propositional truth.  If Scripture is THE final Word of God and special revelation which is necessary for saving faith, it follows that we better accept and assent to what it says.  (John 12:48-50; John 10:35).

Although it is not immediately apparent in my remarks in the linked article, the deciding factor for me in rejecting both Pentecostalism and Wesleyan Arminianism remains the doctrine of Sola Scriptura.  Scripture alone IS God's Word.  Click here to read my remarks:  Reasonable Christian: Re: Charlie: My Conversion to the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace and My Departure from the Arminian/Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement
