Q&A: You seem to discount the value of studying Greek and Hebrew in order to be able to understand the Bible better. TBC Staff text May 2016
F&A 2015_12 TBC Staff text Dec 2015
F&A 2014_02 TBC Staff text Feb 2014
Question: I’ve been told by a Calvinist that if I’m not a Calvinist, then I’m an Arminian. As a Christian, do I have to be one or the other? TBC Staff text Feb 2014
Question: It seems to me that you [have a bad attitude about Calvinism and] are being hypocritical...or at least inconsistent. Is this reflective of McMahon’s taking the helm of the ministry, or is he just following Dave Hunt’s lead in this? TBC Staff text Feb 2014
Question: How does [the Strange Fire Conference speakers making a big deal of Calvin's interpretation] fit with the fact that many of the Reformers continued to hold some Roman Catholic beliefs and practices? TBC Staff text Feb 2014
Question: I never quite understood your objection to Calvinism [but] in the last year I have been beaten up pretty badly by many covenant theology people.... TBC Staff text Jul 2013
F&A 2013_07 TBC Staff text Jul 2013
Question: You have attacked the teachings of Calvin and Augustine. We’ll see which lasts the longest and stands the test of time—the writings of Augustine and Calvin and their contribution to orthodox theology or those of the writers and staff of TBC.... TBC Staff text Jul 2012
Question: How can you believe both in God's foreknowledge and that man has the power of choice? TBC Staff text Jun 2011
Question: Some Calvinists have argued that 2 Peter 2:12 clearly shows that there are some who are "made to be taken and destroyed." How do you explain this verse? TBC Staff text Oct 2010
Question: I am deeply concerned about the increasing frequency of articles and comments in TBC that are harshly critical of Calvinism.... TBC Staff text Sep 2010
Question: I think it is stunning that...the most influential Christians of the past 2,000 years have been Augustinians... TBC Staff text Apr 2010
Question: Doesn't [2 Thes 2:13] sound like God has chosen certain ones to be saved, which of course would mean that the rest are chosen to damnation by default? TBC Staff text Jun 2009
Question: (Combination of several): The Lord frequently singles people out for severe treatment....I sometimes wonder why I keep trying when all I get is cursing from the Lord whom I have tried to please for so many years. TBC Staff text Aug 2007
Question: In the May issue you gave statistics about the moral depravity of American society and said the judgment of God cannot be long in coming upon them....By your definition...are Americans not fulfilling the sovereignty of God? TBC Staff text Jul 2007
Question: One of our staff who reads incoming letters writes, "After reading your articles, Dave, and responses to letters about Calvinism, a Calvinist writes that your theology confuses him...." TBC Staff text Jul 2007
Question [similar to several others]: While I was in a Baptist church I heard nothing but "whosoever will may come"... [and no] emphasis on the sovereignty of God....I appreciate your stand for the truth [but] am grieved with the ongoing controversy.... TBC Staff text Feb 2007
F&A April 2006 TBC Staff text Apr 2006
Question: [TBC's] statement that John Calvin taught that Infant Baptism saves betrays a regrettable ignorance of Calvin’s beliefs....I request you publish this clarification of our Protestant, Reformed position. TBC Staff text Apr 2006
Question [composite of several]: Was this a misstatement, or do you really believe what you said in your September Q&A: “Those who only know the false gospel of Calvinism are not saved”? TBC Staff text Dec 2005
Question: How can a non-Calvinist explain 2 Thessalonians 2:13? Isn’t it quite conclusive that those to whom Paul wrote had been “chosen [unto] salvation” —i.e., predestined to heaven? TBC Staff text Dec 2005
Question: In the July ’05 Letters section, “TF of Ireland,” a self-proclaimed “Calvinist,” acknowledged that Tom and Dave are saved....Can you extend a statement of being a fellow believer to TF (and other Calvinists) as he has to you? TBC Staff text Sep 2005
Question: You have wasted so much time researching and writing about Calvinism that you ought to be ashamed of yourself....Please respond. TBC Staff text May 2005
Question: In the newest edition of What Love is This? you make a very interesting claim [about the Dead Sea Scrolls.] I’d like to know where the Dead Sea Scrolls refer to the Book of Acts, and which early church writers...were of the opinion you express. TBC Staff text Feb 2005
Question: James White, on his Alpha & Omega Ministries web page, said that you had “repeatedly agreed in the past” to a “live debate” with him but have gone back on your word and now refuse. What do you have to say? TBC Staff text Jan 2005
Question: Most of your arguments against Calvinism hang on the false idea that man must have a free will in order to love God, to receive His love, and to love others.... If that is true, then we have a serious problem.... TBC Staff text Aug 2004
Question: A number of us think you have given more than enough attention to the subject of Calvinism. This should not be the focal point of your ministry! It is time to move on to more edifying subjects.... TBC Staff text Jun 2004
Question: Dave, [you don't] understand Romans 4:16, It is by faith that it might be by grace.” My friend and mentor,...I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you and your work...but you are mistaken about Calvinism. Please allow me to help you a bit.... TBC Staff text Mar 2004
Question: A Calvinist gave me six verses not dealt with in What Love Is This? How do you respond? I am not a Calvinist and am looking for more insight. TBC Staff text Feb 2004
Question: Why do you insist upon Calvin being self-contradictory on this point [election to sonship and salvation] when he was using a biblical phrase? TBC Staff text Jan 2004
Question: Why does Revelation 17:8 (and maybe Revelation 13:8, depending on the translation used) refer to those “whose names were not written in the book of life from the creation of the world...”? TBC Staff text Jan 2004
Question: The following is a post that Phil Johnson of MacArthur’s radio program Grace to You put on a web page....Do you have any comments? TBC Staff text Dec 2003
Question: Calvinists complain that in What Love Is This? and also in your newsletter you make no distinction, but quote hyper-Calvinists as though they represent all Calvinists. Is that really fair? TBC Staff text Nov 2003
Question: On page 233 in What Love Is This? you say, “Calvin seems to be denying the eternal Sonship of Christ and His eternal oneness and equality with the Father.” This is false.... TBC Staff text Nov 2003
Question: The most obvious fallacy of your book, What Love Is This?, is its denial to God of the freedom to choose whom and in what way He will love. [Y]our book insists that God’s love is the same for all people. TBC Staff text Aug 2003
Question: Doesn’t Calvin’s assertion that the children of the elect are automatically elect open up a huge can of worms...? TBC Staff text Aug 2003
Question: If I...crawl on my hands and knees to beg forgiveness of a holy and mighty God—how can that cause me to feel pride? TBC Staff text Mar 2003
Question: Mr. Hunt, I think you must shoulder some responsibility for the way that [What Love Is This?] has been received....I wonder at what point you are no longer “fighting the good fight” but beginning to sow discord among believers.... TBC Staff text Mar 2003
Question: While I find it difficult to believe that God could be the cause of evil, there seems to be some pretty strong support...from Scripture. Have you read No Place for Sovereignty: What’s Wrong with Freewill Theism by R. K. McGregor Wright? TBC Staff text Oct 2002
Question [condensation]: I obtained a copy of Edwin Palmer’s book, the five points of calvinism, and...he does say that “...God has foreordained sin.” But why did you...fail to tell your listeners just how Palmer arrived at his conclusion? TBC Staff text Oct 2002
Question: I was not aware until recently that, like Lutherans, those who claim to be of “Reformed” faith...practice infant baptism. Do they believe that baptism saves the infant? They say it is like circumcision for Jews. Is this biblical? TBC Staff text Sep 2002
Question: ...Anyone who knows anything about Spurgeon knows that he taught Limited Atonement. How much longer do we have to wait to see in print your admission of your inexcusable misrepresentation of Spurgeon? TBC Staff text Aug 2002
Question: In the May 2002 issue of TBC one of your readers asked you the question, “Why did I believe in Christ and someone else didn’t?” It seemed to me that you only toe-danced around the question in your response.... TBC Staff text Aug 2002
Question: ...I just read a history of the Anabaptists who disagreed with Luther and Calvin on baptism, but also disagreed with them on sola fide and the role of works in salvation [and] sided with the Catholics...! So who, of all the Reformers, was right? TBC Staff text Jul 2002
Question: You say, “...Calvinists teach that God is the author of sin....” Dave, this is a falsehood....That you are in error in this is so glaringly obvious I keep wondering why I have to keep pointing these things out to you.... TBC Staff text Jun 2002
Question: [O]n the concept of predestination and God choosing some for heaven and others for hell, which you vigorously oppose, could you please explain your view in the context of Romans 9:11-23...? TBC Staff text Jun 2002
Question: In your February 2001 newsletter you stated that a sovereign God does not overcome a person’s free will in regard to justification....If I am able to believe the gospel without God regenerating me first, couldn’t I take credit for believing...? TBC Staff text May 2002
Question [composite of several]: I am deeply concerned about the increasing frequency of articles and comments in TBC that are harshly critical of Calvinism.... TBC Staff text Mar 2002
Question: Were Adam and Eve created perfect? If so, how could they sin? If they were created with a will that could choose to sin, how could they have been perfect? TBC Staff text Feb 2002
Question: Could you please deal with the Openness Theology debate that is going on right now? TBC Staff text Dec 2001
Question: God is omniscient and He knew, before He created man, that many would choose to reject Christ and therefore seal their own fate of eternal damnation. Knowing this, God still chose to create man. Why? Isn’t this a selfish, unloving act? TBC Staff text Oct 2001
Question: ...Your recent attacks upon Calvinism, a subject about which you reveal your ignorance, and your arguments against the sovereignty of God, can no longer be tolerated....Why did you...find it necessary to address Calvinism? That was your undoing! TBC Staff text May 2001
Question: How can you believe both in God’s foreknowledge and that man has the power of choice? If God knows ahead of time that Mr. A is going to do something, how can Mr. A decide for himself? Isn’t foreknowledge the same as predestination? TBC Staff text Feb 2001
Question: [The reformers] Wycliff, Hus, Luther, Calvin, and others failed...the RCC stands unreformed to this day, so why do we refer to their era as the Reformation? What did they reform? Was it the thinking of the people? TBC Staff text Dec 2000
Question: ...Calvinism is gaining in influence and as a result is causing controversy and even division in some churches. I think this is an important subject and I don’t recall you ever giving your opinion. Would you please do so in the Q&A section? TBC Staff text Aug 2000
Question: Usually I find the “Quotable” spot excellent, but sadly this month’s [March 1995] extract from F. B. Meyer did not reach the usual standard,... TBC Staff text Jul 1995
Question: Could you take the time to review the [CURE - Christians United for Reformation] newsletter? Hunt, Dave text Mar 1993
