Dave Hunt's 1918 Invention

 Yes! This is the same Dave Hunt who wrote, "What Love is This?"( His reply to the 5 Points of Calvinism.) During our research on Evangelical Inventions of the Past we uncovered this contraption that claimed to give instant Arminian apologetical responses to any Calvinistic question that might pop up during a Bible study, preaching session or casual conversation. This device was first sold at Dave Hunt's John 3:16 conference and pot-luck supper in Misconstrue, Washington and was hailed by Arminians everywhere as the "single most sure-fire anti-Calvinist super weapon thingy that ever was." Hunt had to discontinue it's use after several participants became Calvinists anyway. 

Above is a photo taken in 1919 just before a church service where the pastor was going to read one of C.H. Spurgeon's unedited sermons. These are the deacons of the First Free Will Church of the Pines. The pastor was promptly fired after he closed the reading with an "Amen".


  1. OK, this is cute, but,( not that you need accuracy in Humor) I don't think Hunt was born in 1918 and since he just died it kinda takes the edge off of the joke.

    1. Clark, (not that you need accuracy in your comment) the post isn't saying Dave Hunt was BORN in says he INVENTED the machine in 1918. Which would make him older than he possibly could have been. Who knows if his birth records were not tampered with?
      Thanks for writing and commenting on many other posts in the archives! I enjoy reading them.

  2. "...Hunt had to discontinue it's use after several participants became Calvinists anyway."

    It is no wonder. John three: sixteen is a Calvinistic verse. Check this out:

    Canons of Dort_ First Head of Doctrine (on election): Article 2

    "But in this the love of God was manifested, that He 'sent His only begotten Son into the world, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life'
    (Proof texts-> 1 Jn 4:9; Jn 3:16).

    1. You are so right. (and SO right means five times more than just right)
