It’s the St. Máedóc’s Day edition of the Friday Files, our weekly look back at previous weeks in the SEA archives. Articles and links won’t always reflect the views of SEA, and our members’ names are in blue. Articles are from the end of January and beginning of February…
- Roy Ingle, “Is Arminianism Works Salvation?” No. Good works have a place in the Christian life, but we’re saved by God’s grace.
- Ben Henshaw, “Some Questions about Total Depravity.” From Henshaw’s blog, in which he takes questions from readers.
- Adam Ford, “New Calvinist Choose Your Own Adventure Book Lets You Select From One Possible Ending.” You know—exactly like every other book. Some Babylon Bee satire.
- Vic Reasoner, “Eschatology.” [audio] The conclusion, Part 5, of a series on the doctrine of last things. Part of the FWS Podcast.
- Evan Minton, “Philosophical and Scriptural Argument For God’s Universal Salvific Will.” If God loves everyone, shouldn’t he want everyone to be saved? And in fact he does.
- Austin Fischer, Young, Restless, No Longer Reformed a Year Later: Calvinism Still Isn’t Beautiful.” Fischer reflects on what he intended to do with his book.
- SEA admin, “Essay in a Book Edited by John Piper Claims that God Brings About the Sexual Abuse of Children.” Mark R. Talbot wrote, in Suffering and the Sovereignty of God, that every atrocity in history is all part of bringing glory to God. [See, the Calvinist depiction of “glory” leans more towards Lovecraftian horror than actual glory.]
- Austin Fischer, “Some Helpful Replies from Austin Fischer to Objections to His Recent Post on Calvinism Not Being Beautiful.” Fischer answers the feedback to his original post.
- SEA admin, “This Week in Arminianism.” Wanna know what Arminians were blogging in 2015?
- Kevin Jackson, “The Calvinist Dictionary (Satire).” Some Calvinist redefinitions of various Christian terms. [He’s kidding… and yet often not.]
- Dan Chapa, “Friday Files: Hunt—‘Why Simple Foreknowledge is Still Useful’.” A look at Dave Hunt’s “Contra Hasker: Why Simple Foreknowledge Is Still Useful,” [PDF] his rebuttal to Hunt’s critique of his critique of John Sanders’s “Why Simple Foreknowledge Offers No More Providential Control Than the Openness of God.”
SEA’s archives are a fun rabbit hole to explore, but if you ever wanna chase other rabbits, there’s out links and books page. Lots to read there.
