After months of preparation, the debate over the issue of “Baptists and Calvinism” has been cancelled. After agreeing to a format, Brett O’Donnell and the Caner brothers changed the rules. Yet, at Ergun Caner’s blog one finds:
Calvinist Debate Cancelled by Hyper-calvinist
James White backs out of the debate. Refused to submit to moderator rules. Details will follow tonight.
Simply put, these men are liars. Not only does Ergun continue to mislabel Dr. White as a hyper-Calvinist (as if Ergun Caner has ever met one in his life), he misrepresents the actual events. One can read the entire exchange at Alpha & Omega Ministries website.
Ergun Caner has posted a brazen account of their deception at the Liberty Seminary website. Notice that he omits the fact that they (O’Donnell specifically) unilaterally chose to change the agreed upon format! Lying by omission is still lying.
Why is it so easy for folks in evangelical circles to lie and deny it? It seems rampant.
