Robert Sungenis Openly Challenges James White to Debate Predestination/Purgatory
There are many of us who would love to see another live debate between Robert Sungenis and James White. In my opinion, White has not done well against Sungenis in live debate, so he has avoided another debate with him for some time. Well, Robert has openly challenged White once again. This challenge comes as a result of White's recent attacks of a brief writing that Robert penned on the Catholic teaching of purgatory. If James White can go on his blog and ridicule Robert in a public forum, then he most certainly should be able to back up his accusations in a live debate, no? Will White accept the challenge from Robert? Probably not, since White has time and time again given weak excuses to avoid losing another public debate with him. Here is Robert's response to White. Here is the instigating post that White put up on his blog. Personally, I think it is time to see another good debate between White and Sungenis. Let me know where the debate will be held, I will be there!
Below is the final paragraph of Robert's response to White.
"Incidentally, my apostolate has asked White to debate the above issues concerning Predestination at least four times in the last six years, but he has declined at each request. So now that he has reopened the debate by citing one of my answers on Purgatory, perhaps he will reconsider, since, as we see above, White’s views on Predestination and the Atonement directly affect everything else White believes about the Christian faith, including his aversion to Purgatory and Indulgences. As I’ve learned in my 40 years of ministry, either a theology can hang together in all its parts, or it cannot hang together at all. Let’s see which of us has the religion that can hang all together. I once again challenge James White to debate these issues in a public forum."
