So if you’ve nothing to do because everything’s been canceled and everyone’s staying home, allow us to present a brief visit to previous years in SEA’s articles and links. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of SEA, and our members’ names are in blue. Articles are from the second week of March…
- “Dan,” “X-Calvinist Corner Files: Testimony #1.” Dan briefly shares his journey from a reluctant Calvinist to decided Arminian.
- Matt O’Reilly, “Can Christians Lose Their Salvation? (Arminianism vs. Calvinism) | Romans 9-11.” [YouTube] So… can we?
- Ben Henshaw, “If I Fell Away from the Lord but Came Back, Does Hebrews Teach That I Am Still Damned?” Well, you can read the long answer, but the short one is it depends on the sort of apostasy you commit.
- Kenneth J. Collins, “The Systematic Nature of John Wesley’s Theology.” In two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. Part of the FWS Podcast, this is a lecture on, of course, the systematic nature of Wesley’s theology.
- SEA Admin, “Regret Doesn’t Make Sense If Determinism Is True.” A reminder:
- Brian Abasciano, “A Reply to James White Concerning His Faulty Treatment of the Greek and Context of Acts 13:48.” A response to White’s dismissive response to Abasciano’s critique. Didn’t help his case any.
- Brian Abasciano, “On the Translation of Acts 13:48.” A 2009 letter to the NIV translation committee, offering an alternative to their inaccurate 1984 interpretation of the verse. (Which they ultimately chose to retain in the 2011 revision.)
- William Birch, “This Week in Arminianism.” A snapshot of the Arminian interwebs in March 2015.
- SEA Admin, “Calvinist Scholar Finds: ‘The Remonstrants Clearly Were Not Pelagians.’” Which we already knew, but it’d be nice if some Calvinists read it.
- SEA Admin, “Retraction Concerning Some Improperly Used Quotes of Calvin.” When we posted “Some Chilling Quotes of John Calvin,” a few quotes were lifted out of context. The author provided a clarification.
- J.C. Thibodaux, “Here’s an Offer You Can’t Refuse.” Wanna program some robots to do vile things on your behalf, yet they receive the entire blame for it because you programmed ’em with free will?
- Martin Glynn, “Arminianism vs. Calvinism: The FACTS vs. TULIP Acronyms.” Presenting a new primary link for the FACTS of Arminianism.
- Dan Chapa, “Friday Files: Marshall, ‘The Problem of Apostasy in New Testament Theology.’” A review of I. Howard Marshall’s article [PDF] on the possibility of apostasy, and how Calvinists deal (but kinda don’t deal) with it.
- Martin Glynn, Ephesians 2:13, A Devotional. As Gentiles we don’t have the same rights to God as the ancient Hebrews did, but Christ brought us near. Don’t take this for granted!
Quarantined and bored? SEA’s archives go even further than this brief taste, and we also have a page full of links and books so you can see what our members and friends have written. Lots of reading material there.
