Bob Ross: "Railing on Apostle James?"

Below is from Brother Bob Ross.



James White said, "I have refused to argue with the man. He did a great work many decades ago in printing Spurgeon's materials, and for that past work I have simply said, Lord bless you, Bob, and left him to rail if he chooses to do so. There is no arguing with someone who says, Well, you say you believe that, but you really don't." 2/24/06

Brother James has yet to properly exegete what I have written on the "pre-faith regeneration" notion, so he confuses my critiques of his doctrinal teaching on regeneration with "railing."

Instead of exegeting what I wrote a few years againt the idea of "incarnational sonship," James thought I was "attacking" John MacArthur.

It seems that James and the Kentucky Wonder, the Monk, have a few things in common -- their mental machinery seems to operate somewhat the same way. -- Bob Ross

James White is not going to answer you because he has no answer.

He runs around the internet, acting all big and bad, and has numerous "wannabes" who repeat his ramblings on the blogs. He even reacted to one of my blogs within a day or so of my posting it. Spent a whole "Dividing Line" on it -- whatever that is.

Since you started hanging out on The Calvinist Flyswatter, I haven't heard a peep out of James. And his "wannabes" never mention you.

Wonder why?

I have known of James a long time, and in my scope of acquaintance with him, he has been sort of a "hit and run" type of confrontationist. He will not accept my email articles, but he evidently manages to get them anyway -- from other sources, I understand. He seems to prefer the strategy of ignoring me, hoping I will "just go away."

Ever since he was embarrassed by John MacArthur when J-Mac altered his view to accept Eternal Sonship, James has shied away from me as if I had the plague. He has much more fun by fumin' fuss'n and fight'n, chasing Dave Hunt's tail.

He is somewhat like the Kentucky Wonder Monk, he likes to dish it out but does not cotton to having rebuttals. If you rebut those two fellows, you are "railing" and "harassing."

Perhaps James would have earned more respect had he stuck with dealing with cultists and writing about stuff which most of his readers probably don't know what he is talking about. He can handle the cultists, and his bent to what he calls "exegesis" evidently is a feather in his hat which impresses his readers.

BTW, don't you think looks enchanting in that Scottish kilt? -- Bob Ross

Scott Bridges said, "Of course, I highly doubt you'll take him up on his offer, but I sincerely hope that you'll surprise me.'

If you are talking to me (Bob Ross), I have no idea what you are referring to. James has not contacted me with any "offer." Is he "preaching the choir" somewhere? If he wants to make me an "offer," he knows where to reach me. -- Bob Ross

"How much are you paying Charles? He is the best PR guy I have ever read!"

That's between me and Charles!

Let's just say that Charles "did not come cheap." It's not everyday you come across a man of his unique gifts. Charles is so good at what he does that some folks were so impressed that they thought he might be Bob Ross! Now that takes some talent, right?

I don't know if I am going to be able to afford Charles if my stock keeps rising. Even the Kentucky Wonder Monk is taking note of me again, and that speaks volumes for Charles' PR work. -- Bob L. Ross

Very cultic, Scott. How much is "Dr." James paying you?

I beseech you, Brother Charles -- don't scold the youg man too hard. After all, it seems that he has not heard anyone present the true "Calvinism" on regeneration in his past, so let's give him a break.

Right now he may be wobbly in his head from drinking too much White Lightning and lapping up so much Pedobaptist Fermented Pedantry, but the Lord is still sovereign and can sober him up in due time. -- Bob

SCOTT asked about Paige Patterson. As for myself, I do not comment on anything with which I am not familiar, and I do not accept secondhand representations of the views of others.

Remember, I have had many years experience in debating, and the most important element in a debate is to properly represent the view you are refuting, and be able to document what you allege to be the view you are refuting.

I heard from one on my list that Patterson and Mohler are going to have some sort of dialogue. Do you know what this is all about? Any documentation on it?

SCOTT asks,
"(Bob)how is Floyd doing? I really thought his name was Charles( Not the Charles on this website)."

After tonight, Thomas Floyd _____ is doing great! His Longhorns held off Penn. He is such a pro-Longhorn fanatic fan and is so anti-A & M that he says he roots foremost for the Longhorns and then for the "other 10 teams of the Big Twelve"!

Floyd just went back to Lampasas two weeks ago after sponging off of us here for over two months. He earned his keep by working in the store, and taking my 3 dogs out to toilet a few times every day. You perhaps discerned that he has some congenital-based disorders, A.D.D among them, was a cast-off orphan, and is on disability. But he is very smart and loves reading Spurgeon and talking about the Bible and theology. He often finds some unique things in Spurgeon I had not seen before. He says he is not a Calvinist, for he just can't see his way clear on a few things. I tell him that he is a "practical Calvinist" -- practicing what he says he doesn't believe! He loves to debate on these things, plus he is a veritable scholar in the defense of Paul as the author of Hebrews. -- Bob Ross

BOB: Since you intimate that you are rather intoxicated by the fermented pedobaptist phantasmagorical elixir of James White, I hope you don't mind if I tease you by referring to you as the "White Lightning Calvinist."

As for me, you can refer to me as "That DAGGgone Calvinist."

Those who don't know what a "DAGGgone Calvinist" is -- you may read my post elsewhere on The Calvinist Flyswatter -- Saturday, March 11, 2006 10:46:41 PM --


Also, you may read the entirety of Dr. Dagg's views on Regeneration on the Founders' website where his "Manual of Theology" is online, and it is a veritable "DAGGer" to the "pre-faith regeneration" theological bubble.

Yes -- Dr. Dagg's views are a "DAGGer" in the very heart of the "White Elephant" which is the Feature Attraction in the "Reformed Brothers Berkhof and Sproul Pedobaptist Circus," James White, Ringmaster. -- Bob L. Ross

I'm glad you have a good sense of humor, Scott. I can tell you from my debating experience with the "Church of Christ" that it goes a long way in controversial situations.

Brother James has never demonstrated his humor with me. I recall a few years ago, he even scolded me for resorting to some cartoons I was faxing to people about Peter Ruckman and the "King James Onlys." I was adapting some "Three Stooges" scenes, and having a little fun with Ruckman and his ardent disciples. James rebuked me, and didn't want to receive any more.

Even Ruckman wrote and told me that he and his wife thought they were funny, and that I had "missed my calling." But James nixed them.

Speaking of Ruckman and humor, when I was invited to be a "guinea pig" at his church and school years ago, answering questions for an hour or so at his "Bible Forum," one of his students asked me a question relating to the "busts" of Spurgeon which we have made for bookends.

"Mr. Ross," he asked, "since you make idols of Spurgeon, are you also going to start making idols of the virgin Mary?"

All of the Rukies got a large laugh out of that, but they even got a greater laugh when I replied something like this--

"No, we won't make any of Mary . . . just more of Spurgeon. All Hail the Power of Spurgeon's Name, Let Angels Prostrate Fall!"
They really got a "hoot" out that.--Bob L. Ross
