Re: A Denomination More Arminian than Wesleyan?

Singalphile, I hear your points. This thread was just concerning the "theology" of a church - if you will. Obviously it's focus will be on the theology presented from a sermon. I am friends with a Nazarene (that's the denomination I grew up in myself) who has accepted Reformed teaching. I have encou...

Re: A Denomination More Arminian than Wesleyan?

Steve - Your words have put a check on me. I agree whole-heartedly with you. I guess my point, is at times that churches who have topical series (which are by no means, not bad) such as: "Eight Ways to Pray Better," or whatever at times when I have given them listening in previous years, seem lackin...

Offering and Giving in the Church of Acts vs Offering Now

On today's show from 2-3pm -- and I couldn't tell if it was a repeat or "best of," (as it was Monday when I tuned in for a bit) or if it was live... but the last question Steve, you talked about a lot of good points. If I can sum them up logically, and perhaps not as chronological, but I'm a writer ...

Re: Preferred Bible Translation

I had heard about, and have had an HCSB Study Bible for some time. I received a Christian Standard Bible (the revised HCSB) for pastoral review. I had found in comparing the CSB and HCSB more reasons to love the HCSB besides the literal translation of gender in HCSB. I posted an exhaustive review he...

A Denomination More Arminian than Wesleyan?

I've been reading a great book on Jacob Arminius's teachings about soteriology called "Grace, Faith, and Free Will" by Robert E. Picirilli. To put it in a nut shell, he makes some references to the fact that many self-proclaimed Arminians today, proclaim Arminianism more as a "Not-Calvinist," procla...

Re: Is God a Monster?

Steve, you also said, and I've been chewing on this all day: My point was that very few “good Christians” (in fact, probably, not many "bad Christians" or even pagans), if given the opportunity to save every drowning passenger of a sunken ship, would choose to save only a minority of them, and leave...

Re: Is God a Monster?

Hi Steve - Good to hear from you... I will merely respond to two things you said: I failed to see the conundrum that you presented, concerning John 6 as having any damaging impact upon the Arminian view. When Jesus says that it is the will of the Father that Jesus not lose any of those given to Him,...

Re: Is God a Monster?

What's strange about your post is that you seem to be calling us toward a more friendly way of looking at our Calvinist or Arminian brothers and sisters. Yet, simultaneously, you refer to open theists as holding to 'wacky misconceptions'. So, in the end, you feel free to call open theists wacky... ...

Re: Is God a Monster?

I'll be honest and say I don't know where I land. I wake up day to day, sometimes an Arminian (as Arminius taught it, holding to total depravity, as well as other tenants that most Calvinist claim as their own, and most Arminians reject by way of seeing it comes from Calvinists - see Robert. E. Pici...

Re: (T)ULIP

Jaydam, I am currently a fence-rider, between Arminianism and Calvinism. So let me answer succinctly, I think, of how most Calvinists I've read might respond. Does Calvinism fall apart if Total Depravity is taken away? If Total Depravity is "taken away," that is, if the idea that the mind is hostile...
