This post from CRN is a good example of misrepresentation. Beside calling all who are not Calvinist as “Neo-Roman Evangelicals”, the editor of course refers to all free will teachings as unsound Biblical teaching. But the main historical inaccuracy is the contention that the issue in the ReformationÂ was free will. Â
“This program delves into the Biblical texts regarding the free-will versus divine election. This issues cuts to the heart of the difference between Rome and the Reformation. Finny and the Reformation and Neo-Roman Evangelicalism versus sound Biblical teaching.”
I believe the issue in the Reformation was two fold, Scripture and justification by faith, was it not? When you have an axe to grind history can be rewritten? And just for the record Wesleyans believe that faith is a gift also, they just believe it is a gift given to all men. So the premise itself is a suggested misrepresentation.
