Friday Files, 8 November 2019

, posted by K.W. Leslie

It’s the Four Crowned Martyrs Day edition of the Friday Files, SEA’s weekly browse through the links and articles we’ve posted on the first week in November in various years. Which years? Well they’re below. The views expressed in them aren’t always SEA’s, so heads up. Our members’ names are in blue.

Last year! (2018)

  • Roger E. Olson, “Again with ‘Good God’ and Calvinism.” Calvinists claim God is good, same as we do. Problem is, they describe God as evil—but they’ve conveniently redefined “good” to mean “whatever God does,” and not the usual universal definition the rest of humanity—and God himself—goes with.
  • John Wesley, “On Voting”:
  • Keith Stanglin, “Calvinism and the Assurance of Salvation.” In practice the Reformed doctrine of predestination doesn’t grant people assurance they’re saved: Arminius observed it either drives them to despair, or to libertinism.
  • Vic Reasoner, “The Church.” [audio] In three parts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Part of the FWS Podcast. Reasoner discusses the doctrine of the church.
