Is free choice merely an illusion? Is your whole life pre-planned? And what would it mean to have unhindered freedom in your decisions and actions, anyway? This is typically a debate framed as being between Calvinists and Arminians. Those terms can be fraught with misunderstanding, so in this episode the Sons of Thunder try to get past the B. S. (Basic Soteriology) and determine once and for all just how… um, determined everything is, and the implications of that.
So in honor of Reformation Day, here’s Joel and Parker’s (the Sons of Thunder) take on the debate that’s raged on for at least 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door.
So, are the Sons of Thunder Calvinists, Arminians, or something in between? (Warning: Parker spoils the suspense almost immediately in this discussion).
