"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Dr. James White's 10 minute closing statement in a debate with George Bryson on Calvinism.

    I remember this well. I have the DVD of this debate. In reality Bryson's entire argument falls to the ground. I don't even feel this was a worthy debate. Though it is definitely a helpful tool when either introducing someone to Calvinism.

    I have a question for the reformation scholars. Would you be able to direct me to any articles discussing the views of the Reformers (around the time of Luther) re missions? I realize this wasn't a major focus but did they have anything to say on this topic? thanks, Peggy

    Peggy,

    Here's an article dealing with Calvin's view on missions. He was a little later than Luther, but not much.

    This is one lecture - 4 mp3's, I think less than 2 hours. Talks at length on John Calvin and Missions. Reference to letters to and from those serving in that capacity. And even an account of two men sent to Brazil.

    The Calvin I never Knew.
