It’s the Sts. Francis Asbury and George Whitefield Day edition of the Friday Files, SEA’s weekly bulldoze through the tel that is our archives. The views expressed in the links and stories aren’t always those of SEA and our members—whose names are in blue.
Last year! (2018)
- Some obituaries for distinguished Arminian scholar Grant R. Osborne, author of The Hermeneutical Spiral.
- Trinity International University, Longtime TEDS professor Grant R. Osborne dies at 76. The obituary.
- Scot McKnight, Grant Osborne. Some memories of the man from his former TA.
- Elliot Ritzema, Remembering Grant Osborne. More memories, by the editor of a number of his New Testament commentaries.
- Roger E. Olson, “Calvinism and Arminianism Compared by Roger E. Olson.” For your use in church classes: A 22-point introduction to the differences between the two soteriologies.
- Mark Bird, “Catechism.” A Wesleyan systematic theology catechism, and a very simple catechism for small children.
Five years ago! (2014)
- Roger E. Olson, “Calvinism and God-Ordained Suffering: A Follow Up.” Calvinists may not agree God ordains all suffering. But John Calvin himself was pretty adamant he does so.
- David L. Allen, “Review of John Piper’s Chapter in From Heaven He Came and Sought Her.” In two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. The final chapter of the book attempts to show how limited/definite atonement glorifies God, but produces three main problems.
- Micah Curado, “A Review of Randy Alcorn’s Book Hand in Hand: The Beauty of God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice.” Alcorn does a fine and fair job of representing the Arminian view, in his book on human choice and God’s sovereignty.
- Mike Barlotta, “The Justification Transposition.” The order of salvation, and how justification has to take place before we’re born again.
- William Birch, “The Early Church on Corporate and Not Unconditional Election.” The apostles who wrote the New Testament viewed election in primarily corporate terms. God may choose individuals in the realm of ministry, but far from unconditionally.
Ten years ago! (2009)
- Kevin Jackson, “Interesting Links 11-14-09.” Just a few things of Arminian interest on the internet.
