NOTE FROM BRAXTON: On this page you will find in-house theological debates as well as debates with skeptics. I have never personally asked to be a part of a debate on the subject of Calvinism. I have never written a book on the subject of Calvinism. I enjoy discussing the issue with fellow believers, and I have been asked on several occasions to debate or discuss these matters in a public way. Accepting these Calvinism debates does not mean I see Calvinists as unbelievers, heretics, false prophets or wolves in sheeps' clothing. They are my brothers and sisters in Christ. Nevertheless, if I'm asked to talk about a subject that interests me, I will discuss it.
