Although revised for publication, this booklet is the substance of a presentation given to the Dutton, MI Christian Reformed Church's Men's Society. This was given at the invitation of the society and after their leader had presented the CRC view.
This is not an analytic treatment of the "three points of common grace". Rather it is a late 20th century consideration of that doctrine as the author sees it doing damage especially to three vital doctrines of the Reformed faith.
First this paper clears up some common misunderstandings of the Protestant Reformed teaching regarding common grace. Then it explains how common grace denies total depravity, how the free offer of "the first point" contradicts predestination, and finally how common grace undermines the historic teaching of the antithesis.
