Ergun Caner and "Neo-Calvinism"

In the recent edition of The National Liberty Journal, Ergun Caner writes the cover story: "Predestined Not To Be a Hyper-Calvinist."

As in his sermon by the same title, Caner continues to make the mistake of equating hyper-Calvinism with Calvinism. The title speaks of HYPER-Calvinism. Several paragraphs speak of HYPER-Calvinism. However, the brunt of Caner's article is a response to plain-jane Calvinism. They are not the same thing. The Dean of a theological seminary should know better.

I'll allow Tom Ascol to handle the evaluation of the article for the time being. Ascol is one of the two men (the other being James White) who will join in debate with Ergun Caner and his brother Emir in October at Liberty.

For a good primer on the actual definition of hyper-Calvinism, go here first or maybe here or here.
