Debate on Indulgences

Dr. James White vs. Roman Catholic Peter D. Williams debate Indulgences.

Peter D. Williams is another one of those Roman Catholic lay apologists who do most of “the heavy lifting”. (Matthew Schultz)

“The refrain of lay Catholic apologists is that Protestants must submit to the Magisterium. Yet if the primary lens of theological inquiry is authority, why is so much of the heavy lifting done by Catholic laypersons?”  (Matthew Schultz)

The debate goes to the nature of the gospel in the way Protestants and Roman Catholics disagree with each other, and they also touched on issues like purgatory, church history, Semi-Pelagianism, Augustine, Gottschalk, the development of doctrine, the wrath of God, Penal Substitutionary Atonement, and Sola Scriptura and the Canon. Rich in content.

When Dr. White mentioned Semi-Pelagianism and Gottschalk, it reminded me of R. C. Sproul’s analysis of church history how Semi-Pelagianism crept back into the church between the Council of Orange (529 AD) and the Council of Trent (1545-1563).

Sin is to be mortified not modified

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield, author of “The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert”, breaks down 3 views of homosexuality among those who claim to be Christians.

Temptation is not just from without, from Satan and the world, but also from within, from our “flesh” or “sinful nature” – James 1:13-14.  “each one is tempted and drawn away by his own lusts/ desires”.

“mortify” = “put to death” – see Colossians 3:5 and Romans 8:13
