Are "Modern Arminians" Semi-Pelagian?
Dr Leighton Flowers replies to Dr Brian Abasciano of the Society of Evangelical Arminians regarding his self-defeating accusations of "Semi-Pelagianism" against Provisionists. The complete article can be found here: https://soteriology101.com/2020/12/19... For a summary of this issue please watch: https://youtu.be/pYcB9wQQevs As many of our regular listeners are aware, we as “Provisionists” (or “Traditional Southern Baptists”), are sometimes accused of holding to heretical (or “semi” heretical) views due to our denial of the Calvinistic doctrine of Total Inability, the belief that all men are born in a corpselike dead condition spiritually and thus must be given new life (“regeneration” on Calvinism) or partial life (“partial regeneration” on Classical Arminianism) to believe the clearly taught, graciously inspired gospel truth brought by the Holy Spirit through His chosen messengers. I have produced much to debunk the concept of Total Inability in my books, blog posts and broadcasts, but in short, we deny that being “spiritually dead” entails a moral incapacity to believe so as to be given new life. What does the Bible say one must do BEFORE getting new life? “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” -John 20:31 “…you refuse to come to me to have life.” -John 5:40 The scriptures seem to teach that “believing in” or “coming to” Christ is the solution for those who remain dead in their trespasses rather than some pre-regenerating or pre-partial regenerating work. Interestingly, some modern-day Arminians, like Dr Brian Abasciano of the Society of Evangelical Arminians, agree with me in regard to my objections against the need for a “partial regeneration.” Abasciano wrote: “…the classical Arminian view is neither the only nor the typical Arminian view of prevenient grace. The classical view regards prevenient grace as a partial regeneration. …the more typical Arminian view today does not view prevenient grace as partial regeneration, but as God’s work of helping sinners to believe the gospel in various ways such as enlightening, convicting, drawing, opening the heart, etc... It does not involve a split in regeneration.” LINK: http://evangelicalarminians.org/brian... Both Olson and Abasciano maintain, however, that God must supply an extra supernatural grace to the lost, above and beyond the supernaturally gracious work in bringing us the gospel, in order for the lost to believe it. In my experience, the modern Arminian, like Abasciano, have been hard-pressed to explain what exactly that supernatural grace is accomplishing that is not adequately accomplished by the gospel itself. After all, if the condition of man from birth is not, as the Calvinist explains it, “corpse-like-dead and thus needing spiritual life in order to believe the gospel,” then what must the Holy Spirit do to the lost man in order to make the gospel revelation sufficiently believable? On Abasciano’s view, what specifically is the Spirit DOING above and beyond what the Spirit does by bringing the light of the gospel?

The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies with Ryszard Legutko
Professor Ryszard Legutko lived and suffered under communism for decades and fought in the Polish anti-communist movement to abolish it. Having now live for over two decades under a liberal democracy, Legutko has discovered that liberal democracy and communism have more in common than one might think. Professor Legutko joins Hank Hanegraaff to discuss The Demon in Democracy, as Legutko explains how liberal democracy has slowly tilted toward the same goals as communism, albeit without Soviet-style brutality. Having escaped the horrors of communism Legutko understands just how critical it is for Western Christians to understand the threats that lie buried within the systems we’ve long considered safe and learn to recognize The Demon in Democracy. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2101hup/ Topics discussed include: What are the similarities between communism and liberal democracy? (3:30); the problem when everything is political (8:30); modernization projects, the myth of progress and the continued influence of the Enlightenment (13:30); how the West plans to deliver on the failed promises of Communism (17:55); a modern society that is consumed with entertainment and self-hatred (20:10); Black Lives Matter and the ulterior motives of the movement such as the disruption of the nuclear family—because family is often the enemy of modern revolutionary ideology (23:25); the continued shift to the left in “mainstream politics” and the exclusion of conservatives (30:00); the manipulation of language and the problem with changing the meanings of words and concepts in a society (35:35); identity politics and communism (40:20); multiculturalism and social engineering (43:25); the global reaction to Hungary defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman (48:05); reducing everything to the ideological triad of class, race and gender (51:30); the paradox of equality (54:45); religion, conservatism and the family as common enemies of liberal democracy and communism (59:25); killing God, the worship of man and why socialists and communists have always hated religion (1:03:05); the dangerous naivety of progressive, liberal Christianity (1:06:50); the delusion of conciliatory Christians and capitulatory Christians (1:09:05); a stunning statement made by Legutko in The Demon in Democracy (1:11:30); what does resistance look like today?
