, posted by K.W. Leslie

It’s the St. Elijah Day edition of the Friday Files. (All the Old Testament prophets are saints, y’know.)

The Friday Files are a look back at SEA’s previous articles, posted on the site because they’re of interest to Arminians. The views they express aren’t always those of SEA. Neither are K.W. Leslie’s brief summaries. SEA members are highlighted in blue.
