James White’s Comical Response to Dr. David Allen

James White fired back from London after snipes from Georgia initiated hostilities.  Here is an excerpt from his response: 

Isn’t it ironic? I am in London, England, preparing to do public debates with Islamic apologists, seeking to present and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Lordship, and the Arminians are all gathered at Johnny Hunt’s church to try to convince folks not to listen to the Calvinists. Don’t you find something just a bit ironic in that? I’m out on the front lines pressing the claims of Christ and calling Muslims to bow to His lordship while those who will falsely accuse me of being a “hyper-Calvinist” are safely ensconced in the friendly environs of Georgia, sniping at Reformed folks—who, of course, were not invited to participate, debate, or discuss. … If you can evangelize, call men to Christ, believe in common grace, etc., and still end up smeared by the “hyper” name, then clearly the debate has devolved down to a level beneath what is proper for believers. … I did notice with some sadness that, as usual, the main thrust of the presentation was not biblical at all. And this will always remain the difference between the Reformed and those who cling to man’s sovereignty.

    I apologize in advance for my question because I should be a better reader than I am. However, I missed the part of the response that was supposed to be comical.

    Right … I suppose “comical” is somewhat subjective. I thought his “snipe” imagery was comical, and that it made his point well too. We evangelicals believe the same gospel, yet were are always fighting over Calvinism. It’s like civil war. There’s a part of it that’s not comical at all, but sad.
