Dr. Leighton Flowers responds to another Radio Free Geneva from Dr. James White which focuses on his interpretation of John 10 regarding the meaning of "sheep" in the mind of Jesus. Were the "sheep" individuals chosen unconditionally before creation or are they simply "followers" of God who recognize His voice?

Soteriology 101: Former Calvinistic Professor discusses Doctrines of Salvation

Dr. Flowers walks through a commentary produced by Lutheran Pastor, Jordan Cooper, on Romans 9 to illustrate the proper exegesis of this contentious chapter is far from supporting the Calvinistic claims of double predestination. But, does Romans 9 support the doctrine of "single predestination," which is the concept that God has unconditionally preselected some individuals to whom He will effectually give faith so that they will certainly believe and be saved?   To watch Dr. Cooper's original broadcast, go here:

These are some recent comments sent to me via social media:

“Your theology is man-centered…” “You are a humanistic Pelagian…” “You start with man and build your view of God around humanistic reasoning.” “Making God in your own image is not theology, Mr. Flowers!!!”

And those were the nice ones.

First, I would like us to try and objectively consider which soteriological perspective is actually more “humanistic.” To do so we need a good working definition. The American Heritage Dictionary defines humanistic as “one who is concerned with the interests and welfare of humans.”

I’ll objectively concede this point: When compared to the claims of Calvinism related to God’s ultimate desire for self-glorification it does appear that our soteriological perspective does put more emphasis on God’s concern with humanity over and above His concern for self-glorification. Notable Calvinists are known to argue that God’s primary concern is not the welfare of man, but for Himself and His own glory.

In my journey to becoming a Calvinist, I was very drawn to the teachings about God’s desire for His own glory. This was especially attractive to me coming out of the more “seeker-sensitive” movement that seemed to put way too much focus on pleasing man rather than on glorifying God. And quite honestly, Calvinistic authors introduced me to many texts within scripture which so clearly supported the doctrine of God’s self-glorification that I could not begin to understand how any Bible-believing Christian could deny such truth. They would have to be selfish and humanistic to do so, right?

Regardless of what some of my Calvinistic friends may think; in my journey out of Calvinism, I did not abandon the truth that God seeks His own Glory. Instead, I realized that God’s Glory is best revealed in His self-sacrificial love for all. I came to understand that God does not sacrifice creation for the sake of His own glory, but instead He sacrifices Himself for sake of His creation, which in turn reveals Him as the most glorious of all.
