Friday Files

, posted by Martin Glynn

This week, we are starting something new that I intend to do from here on out once a week. For those who may not know, this is not intended to be a blog site. The point of this website is to be a repository of Arminian resources, and a resource itself when debating Calvinists. The purpose of the blog is to draw attention to the many Arminian bloggers that are out there, as well as providing a consistant stream of true Arminian thought.

However, since this is not meant to be a blog site, we wanted to point you to some of the articles that we have here, since they are more dear to the hearts of those of us at SEA. So, every Friday, I’m going to be pointing out a particular article that we have on file here for your review. Articles are longer, and are often far more scholarly.

Today, I wanted to draw your attention to an exegetical work by one of our blog contributors: 1 Timothy 2:1-7 Miscellaneous Comments on a Universal Atonement Passage. The Greek might be a little hard to read, since not everyone has the same Greek fonts, so we do apologize for that. But the content is still good.

I Timothy 2:1-7 is a fundamental passage for understanding the heart of Arminianism: God’s desire for all to be saved. Coupled with that is our belief that the atonement itself was provided for all. It is hard to understand how Calvinists can be against this, given such passages as this.
