Zack Keuker, the rabid Calvinist zealot with the pathological hatred for Catholics, had the misfortune of calling into the Deeper Truth show, attempting to trap the host (yours truly) in a quandary.
It went something like this;
- Did Jesus die to save all mankind?
- Was Jesus death sufficient to save all He intended to save?
Zach contends that if you answer “Yes” to both questions, then the only logical conclusion is that no one goes to hell.
Obviously, any actual Christian (Calvinists are not Christians) can see the fatal flaw in this attempted syllogism because of the third- silent- line of logic, inserted by stealth.
That is, that all those who were provided the necessary graces to be saved, were saved. In other words, Zach is asserting that Material Sufficiency equals Practical Sufficiency. Upon running into this brick wall of a distinction, Zach could only stumble and mutter and repeat the two questions as if they had never been answered. When Zach was asked to explain what the Apostle Paul said in Colossians 1:24-25, about that which is lacking in the sufferings of Christ, he could not answer.
Zack Kueker, the never-ending fountain of anti-catholic vomit was stumped.
To explain the fatal flaw in Zach’s disordered and heretical logic, let’s enumerate his logic to include the unstated, but essential elements of his alleged syllogism of Universal atonement.
- Jesus died for all mankind.
- Jesus death was materially sufficient for the salvation of all He intended to save.
- Material sufficiency equals practical sufficiency, therefore-
- All men are saved.
As you can see, Zach’s premise is dependent on the silly “It is finished” canard that protestants like to use, purporting that Christ’s last words “It is finished” mean that only a verbal and intellectual assent to faith in Christ’s atoning sacrifice is necessary for Salvation. This logic applies that the Material Sufficiency of Christ’s atonement is applied to the sinner by a simple, one-time request. In short, that man is justified by faith alone.
However, since man is not justified by Faith alone, Zach’s alleged Syllogism crumbles into rubble.
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if a man says he has faith but has not works? Can his faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
This poor girl’s name is Aisha and she was gang raped. In the depraved muslim nation she had this misfortune of being born into, she was the guilty party, destined for hell.
At 13 years old, she was stoned to death and, according to Zach’s own words, on my show, she is in hell.
Romans 10:14 But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?
Zack Kueker’s satanic doctrine of limited atonement turns a merciful and loving God into a monster. May God have mercy on you, Zack.
