Challenging the caricatures of Calvinism

In this repeat broadcast, Mike shares an article by Dr. Thomas Ascol of Founder Ministries  in which he writes,” I hope I live long enough to see the day when the common caricatures of the doctrines of sovereign grace have been so widely exposed that any self-respecting preacher will be ashamed to keep serving them up as if they were irrefutable critiques of what John Broadus called “that exalted system of Pauline truth which is technically called Calvinism.”  On todays program, Mike examines the gross misrepresentation what he calls “the true exposition of Scripture.”
