Calvinism vs. Arminianism - Does God Choose Us or Do We Choose God?

Allen Parr recently posted a video summarizing the differences between Calvinism and Arminianism. I largely agree with what he said. He did not endorse one over the other but treated the issue as important but not worth anathematizing anyone.

Parr's video caught Leighton Flower's attention and he posted a response video. What amazed me was that it seemed to me that Flowers did not really understand what Parr said.

Libertarian Free Will and the WCF with Chris Date

This is a long but important debate. WCF is the acronym for the Westminister Confession of Faith which is a statement of faith by Presbyterians in the year 1646 AD. Leighton Flowers and Chris Date debate what the authors believed about Free Will. Although the authors of the Confession were Calvinists, Flowers argues that they affirmed Libertarian Free Will.

Why not read it for yourself? What do you think?
