Responding to William Lane Craig on Molinism and Reformed Theology – Part 1

In this episode, I present part 1 of a 2 part series responding to the doctrine known as Molinism, most famously defended by Christian philosopher William Lane Craig. Part 1 will be a direct response to a Q&A done by Craig on his website which you can find here: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/molinism-vs-calvinism. In this Q&A response, Craig presents what he thinks the problems are with Reformed Theology as part of the reason that he accepts Molinism. I take him to task for much of what he says here.

Part 2 will be a more broad engagement with the view and why I think that Molinism is a heterodox doctrine which potentially leads to heretical views such as Semi-Pelagianism and Open Theism. Part 2 will attempt to expose many of its Biblical, theological, and philosophical shortcomings. I will be joined by Owen Paun for that discussion.

Doctrines of Grace – Total Depravity

In this episode of the show, we start a series dealing with the  Doctrines of Grace (typically called Calvinism). Getting some of these concepts in place will not only help resolve some of the recent debates on Molinism that the apologetical world has been engaged in, but also sets the stage for what I think are more robust and biblical answers to objections based on the problem of evil, suffering, and the “God is a moral monster” brand of argumentation.
