A presentation where Beau Branson and I argue that Dr. Dale Tuggy's definitions of "god" and "unitarian" lead to three problems for his work at present.
In response to one of my recent posts, Dr. Tuggy wrote three posts that clarify some issues that I raised. Here are some things that I found puzzling about those posts. 1. Incomparable herds?

In the spirit of discussion and respect, I'd like to ask Dr. Tuggy to clarify his pneumatology (or view on the Holy Spirit). What has… Continue reading Clarifying Tuggy’s Pneumatology
