Does God love everyone? In what way does he, if so? I was delighted to be joined by two very well known guests, Christian apologist Matt Slick and philosopher Jerry L. Walls. Walls' new book, "Does God Love Everyone" offers a stinging critique of Calvinism as a system that must admit that God simply doesn't love all people. Where does this leave the Calvinist, then, in understanding God? And is it in accordance with the scriptures? This debate got a little heated as both thinkers are passionate about their positions. Thanks to both for their time and their expertise in these matters! 

Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.

First Lutheran also publishes a daily podcast called The Scarlet Thread (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-scarlet-thread/id1110938468?mt=2). This podcast is a reading of the appointed texts for the Two-Year Daily Lectionary. After two years, listeners will have heard most of the Old Testament once and most of the New Testament twice. If you are liturgically-minded and want a little more Bible in your life, this is a great podcast for you.

    Just listened to the discussion and found myself frustrated. Let me say upfront that I am a 5 point Calvinist and am not a big fan of Dr. Walls. That said, there seems to be a continuous pattern with Matt Slick getting over emotional in debates and either hanging up or stomping off. I am thankful for Matt and his ministry and have benefited greatly from it. That said I hope he will stop doing debates. Not because he isn't sharp, or doesn't defend his views well. Rather, because he can not control his temper and I think this does tremendous damage. I understand he felt Like Dr. Walls was evading and not dealing with the text (and I agree), but his anger, tone, and hanging up is not fitting for a minister or a professional apologist. I thought the same thing during his debate with J.D. Hall, Tim Staples, Atheist Experience, etc. Matt is a good guy, I love his passion, I agree with his views, but I wish he would stop doing public debates as he has shown over and over he can not control his emotions and act like a professional. Calvinists are already looked at like we are unloving jerks. Brilliant guy, knows his position, to bad he can't control his temper.
