Can you loose your salvation? What does Heb 6 REALLY say

David of jollyblogger is preaching on Hebrews 6, the famous passage that is so controversial in the debate about eternal security. You simply have to go over and read his well thought out blog post on the matter. Just to whet your appetite..........the typical reformed exegesis which effectively neuters the passage's intended effect as a warning. What I mean is that reformed exegetes and others who believe in eternal security spend so much time jumping through hoops to prove what it doesn't … [Read more...]

Calling all Arminian Prayers

One of the great things about the blogosphere is that you can to use David Wayne's phrase "call out" people. Well, right now I call out all my Arminian readers out there and ask them to respond to this quote from Spurgeon. In his sermon NO. 52 "FREE-WILL A SLAVE" he claimed that the following was one of the strongest arguments for the veracity of Calvinism. I would love to hear the response of an honest Arminian to this rather interesting quote. Does it really settle the issue once and for … [Read more...]

Some have wondered why most Warnie winners are non-Americans. Well, I suspect this may be because Warnies tend to be issued to non-political blogs, and many o … [Read more...]

EXCLUSIVE interview opportunity with the ESV Translation committee

I am delighted to announce that I have been honored with an exclusive "interview" with the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version of the Bible. I will be asking them ten questions, which they promise to answer! My respect for this version of the bible continues to increase, and despite my best goading I have found surprisingly few bloggers who will publicly detract from it. Maybe my first question should be "Why, out of all the bloggers who love the ESV did you choose … [Read more...]

"Did he have one in the first place?" the detractors may well ask.
