Response to the Lampstand July 2017 on the Devil

We know a few people were scratching their heads on the final part of the Lampstand’s insert on EC wondering what was up.  The table moved on to discuss the devil.  Honestly the representation of the EC position is so totally weird that it is hardly worth comment.  Nonsense.  Whatever something thinks they might have understood they clearly didn’t.  The other side of the table is not much better – an unbalanced focus on winning an argument against a strawman and this is the result.  Below is the table: Continue reading
