Want to test to see if your friendly neighborhood Arminian (a very common species of Christianus Evangelicus) has the Glasses of Libertarian Tradition firmly glued upon his or her face when reading the Scriptures? John 8:47 provides an excellent detection device:
“He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
The amazing powers of the Libertarian Tradition optics alters these inspired words, so that before their meaning impacts the brain, they are magically translated,
“He who has chosen to be of God hears the words of God; the reason you do not choose to hear them is because you have not yet chosen to be of God.” (3rd Arminians 3:16)
Just listen to a few sermons…a few minutes of “Christian radio,” or, if you dare, watch a little “Christian television.” You’ll see the amazing results of the Libertarian Tradition glasses everywhere you look.
