In light of the controversy surrounding charges of antinomianism against those who, like myself, hold to a law/gospel paradigm, brought by those who subscribe to Mark Jones' sanctification schema which explicitly states that "good works are necessary FOR salvation", and in view of that fact that Jones and his most prominent supporters have been incessantly calling for a debate on these maters, I challenge Mark Jones & Rick Phillips to debate myself and another Lutheran pastor/theologian of my choosing to debate the question, "Are Good Works Necessary FOR Salvation?"
The debate will be held at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Date: To be determined by the consensus of the participants
Format: To be determined by the consensus of the participants
Mark Jones & Rick Phillips should contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org should they choose to accept this debate challenge.
