You Are Changing Lives

I have so much to say, but so little space. May God continue to bless your work. I stumbled onto your stuff during my early years in college when I was battling with confusion to the point of internal strive by certain Calvinistic readings of scripture. I was involved with a fairly well known Calvinistic college campus group for a short period of time, but remember being marginalized in varying regards as a fellow believer because I didn’t agree with the Calvinistic systematic. What I love most about this podcast isn’t its advocacy for a particular theological stance, but it’s desire to hash out the Truth that is scripture, while ALSO equipping those of us who lack the proper apologetic sparing tools needed to engaged in meaningful discourse with other dogmatic siblings who sometimes want to cut you clean argumentatively.

Mostly Erroneous Doctrine

Leighton Flowers devotes his podcast to attacking Biblical orthodoxy on soteriological doctrine. Though I would consider him a brother in Christ, I find it quite sad that he spends so much time and energy striving against the clear teachings of Scripture, and the logical outworking of God’s sovereignty. With the prophets, apostles, theological giants, and our Lord Himself, the Reformed declare that from beginning to end, “Salvation is of the Lord” (Jonah 2:9).

Unity?

Why does Flowers feel the urge to bash great men like Piper? Yes, he is a Calvinist (like Charles Spurgeon a.k.a The “Prince of Preachers). Piper is a man passionately preaching God and dedicated to knowing and revealing truth. Is Piper always right? No! I’m not even a Calvinist, but I hate seeing people take other preachers (that are not heretics) and painting them to look so bad. Christ said the world would know that we are from Him by the way we are one (John 17). I wish We could be unified when its not 1st doctrine issues at stake.

Excellent Talks

I found myself almost in the Calvinist point of view but found that it made more questions than answers. I found this podcast and it has helped me walk through some of those questions. Flowers is a wonderful teacher and does so honestly and fairly.

Predestined to be good

This podcast was predestined to shine a light on the silliness of Calvinism and God made me so that I would find it compelling yet he is not responsible for arbitrarily deciding this as my fate.

Humble and Helpful

I really appreciate how Leighton Flowers shines light on the false dichotomy of “You’re either an Arminian or a Calvinist.” I have always found myself lining up with Provisionism theologically and I am glad to have found a resource that can put those convictions into words. I have found this podcast to be very useful in understanding more about how Calvinism works in relation to the other systematics in Christianity on top of surveying multiple Calvinistic sources. His book, The Potter’s Promise, includes a very thorough exegesis of Romans 8 and 9 so I am very confused when people accuse him of not doing exegesis on these passages; those who disagree with Leighton make the empty statement that he has done poor exegesis on these chapters simply for the fallacious reason that he did not arrive at the same conclusion as them. I have a lot of respect for the way he addresses his detractors with grace and humility; truly a Christ-honoring approach to debate.

Fair honest academic debate

I’m a layman when it comes to these issues, but am always interested in theological issues. Mr. Flowers lays out solid arguments without demonizing others. Very practicable and assessable, honest debate on the issue of free will v determinism. Keep up the good work.

Fair and balanced

Finding this podcast was a breath of fresh air. I am not a Calvinist nor am I an Arminian, and hearing another who holds a similar view that I do is nice. This podcast helps spread this teaching, that I believe to be true, and show the inconsistency of Calvinist soteriology. I am thankful for this podcast and for Leighton Flowers because it has helped me to strengthen my own beliefs. Highly recommend that all Christians listen to this podcast, whether Calvinist or not, it is well worth the time.

Helped me out of Calvinism

I was a Calvinist for 13 years. I even pastored a reformed baptist church. Listening to Soteriology 101 helped me to see things from another perspective. Some of the things Dr. Flowers said stuck with me and forced me to study his perspective in greater depth. After many months, I cane to understand that reformed theology is not biblical. I don’t agree with Dr. Flowers on every point, but I’m thankful for his ministry and how it helped me out of Calvinism.

Great biblical insight

The best biblical perspective that opposes many lies that exists in the body of Christ. Highly recommend Leightons work all around. I’m currently reading The Potters Promise. God bless!

Calvinism debunked

Im a baby christian and can tell that calvinism is evil. It doesnt bring me closer to Christ, just trying to convince others that my position is right from what I study, but reeks of pride and arrogance. The world offers enough of that fruit. Love each other, teach with humility. God bless!

White vs. Flowers

I’ve heard enough of Leighton during the debate on Romans 9 with Dr. James White when Dr. Flowers decided to change the topic of the debate and avoid walking though and exegeting Romans 9. Ultimately according to Dr. Flowers position, the ultimate reason someone will be in heaven is because they “made a decision” better than someone else......

Non Calvinist Theology

Finally, a good representation of non Calvinist soteriology. If you are a Calvinist, I invite you to listen to a strong non reformed view regarding how non Calvinists interpret key passages of the Bible (Eph 2, John 6, Rom 9, Rom 8). These are often misunderstood. By listening, you will at least be able to understand the other side and have more fruitful dialogue.

‘Biased’ in disguise...

As much as I appreciate Flowers’ respectful attempt to defend, both sides in reality. He definitely is leaving out scriptures that Calvinists use to describe their viewpoint and certainly doesn’t leave out the ones he’s come to honor for his own.Do yourself a HUGE favor and look up ANY debate with Flowers vs. James R. White.James is a lot more intellectually sound and inclusive of the COMPLETE narrative of scripture through and through. A child is completely incapable of “humbling oneself” so to constantly use those scriptures to justify mans “involvement” or “active part” in the moment of regeneration....is just silly, hence why Calvinist stress ‘Tota Scriptura’..
