You're not allowed to criticize our village idiot!

Reformed seminary graduates are all in an uproar due to one of their own, one of their village idiots, teaching on law and gospel with no understanding of law and gospel, and really, seemingly, giving them all big problems. That they can't deal with a common village idiot speaks volumes. (Sample here, and here, and here. Other links can be found at those links.)

The village idiot is one Tullian Tchividjian. He is preaching the no-effort mantra that is common in New Age environments including Roman Catholicism (ha ha). Anyone who hasn't run into the no-effort mantra hasn't been around much.

What is interesting in Christianity is the fact that once you are regenerated by the word and the Spirit you *better* be able to do.

Here is a comment I left at the Gospel Coalition that they moderated into nothingness:

There's a common no-effort mantra in New Age circles as well. For a Christian, though, once regenerated you become *able* to do. Ability to sin, ability to not sin. Prior to regeneration we had ability to sin, inability to not sin. In the glorified state we will solely have inability to sin. That is a new state.

There are individuals who have a connection to Reformed doctrine who have yet to learn these categories and thus make endless category mistakes.

Simple enough comment, right? They deleted it. "Get taught by a nobody? Are you kidding? I'm a graduate of an elite seminary!!! How dare you!!!!!"

How about just getting taught by Reformed teachers that lived before you or your professors were born?

I'll add this note... By the way, just another incident showing how seminary type churchians just suck to no end. They never disappoint.

I'm under deep cover. Because of my often out-of-control rhetoric (to put it mildly) I can't allow my identity to be known. Deep, deep cover.

Why are you hiding? If you feel you are preaching truth, why hide your identity? It is what it is.. people will consider your words and repent or hate you for them. That's if you're preaching Christ and Him crucified, not sideshow debates of words to no profit.

There are legitimate reasons to be anonymous on the internet.
