    Does God Desire the Salvation of Everyone?

    Does God Desire the Salvation of Everyone?

    WWUTT (When We Understand The Text) has recently released a video that denies God's genuine desire for the salvation of all people based on some very erroneous logical fallacies and misapplications of scripture. See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZkmh5bV8XU
    Dr. Leighton Flowers walks through the video point by point to demonstrate how WWUTT has "put dynamite to the text," as Spurgeon put it, and far "out Calvined" even John Calvin by removing the well meant offer of the gospel and the genuineness of God's expressions of love and longing for the lost to come to repentance and faith.

Exceptional dialog

Thoughtful, measured, non confrontational yet firm. Biblical, Giving God the supreme position He deserves. I like it!!!!

Life Changing

I grew up in a reformed Presbyterian home. After experiencing the loss of 7 babies, and some going through a time of very dark depression and anxiety (although never doubt...I’ve never doubted God’s goodness), I decided to explore this controversial topic more. After listening to nearly all of Leighton’s podcasts, some multiple times, and reading his books, I’m convinced more than ever that the Calvinistic soteriology taught in so many conservative churches now is not grounded in Biblical truth. I used to find comfort in the fact that I believed all the horrific things that had happened to me were determined by God before the beginning of time, meticulously, for his own secret glory. But after 2 years of study and learning, I have a different understanding. One that upholds God as more glorious and good, and one that holds me responsible fully for my sin.
Leighton’s gracious tone and his ability to debate topics with such a good nature and in such humility has me coming back for each new episode. He also plays the theologians he contends with for themselves, so I don’t feel he makes the mistake of misrepresentation.
I highly recommend this podcast.

Dr Flowers is cool,but!!

Professor Flowers is very intelligent, very well spoken,I’m sure he is a very nice man.My problem is not that he takes a different perspective than I do.My problem is that he literally does nothing else. He is a 1 string banjo over a non essential issue & I see him doing nothing else to defend the orthodox Protestantism .No defending the Trinity, salvation by grace through faith,not the Virgin birth, resurrection…nothing else. Broaden your horizons dr flowers, we’ll have plenty of time to argue this issue after the Marxists throw us in prison together.
