Calvinism Vs. Lutheranism: Debate and Cook-off
I would be very interested in hosting a Calvinism Vs. Lutheranism debate in my backyard. If you live in the Grand Rapids area please let me know if you are interested, especially if you are a confessional Calvinist who is willing to debate. If you think that the presidential debates are actual debates please do not volunteer. I am willing to defend the Lutheran position unless someone more qualified volunteers to take my place. I am also open to another location if someone has a more suitable facility.
There seems to be a lot of misconceptions between Calvinists and Lutherans about what the other believes and this would be an excellent way to clear up those misconceptions. It would be good to have other confessional Lutherans and confessional Calvinists around who know their catechisms well to clear up any of the misstatements by the debaters. I believe the debate should start where it began--the Lord's Supper.
There should also be good food. It's summer and a grilling competition would be delicious.
