Unveiled Face's Warnie Acceptance speech

Unveiled Face: responding to his surprise warnie award:"Before saying anything else I should confess that once upon a time (i.e. quite recently), I would have added this to my collection of self-esteem-boosting stuff stored up in my brain. However, it is a testimony to Christ's transforming work that I can use this opportunity to truly thank God for all blessings - including this kind of encouragement :-)I really do appreciate the response to these posts, and I also hereby guarantee some far … [Read more...]

In amazing turn of events a prestigious blogging award has gone to an outsider who only began blogging TEN days ago! "Has Adrian lost his mind?" the blogosphere is asking tonight. "Did he have one in the first place?" the detractors may well ask. I can assure you that unlike certain election bloggers no money has chaned hands over tonights award (nor incidently over the recent ESV blogging- although I think I deserve more than a free bible for those efforts!) The reason for tonights decision … [Read more...]

John Piper on the ESV

John Piper was frequently quoted by other bloggers who like me love the ESV, heres what he says, he goes onto list some specific examples:Not only am I not on board. I would be happy to see the NIV sail into the sunset if it could be replaced by the ESV as the standard preaching, reading, memorizing Bible of the English-speaking church. I feel so strongly about this that I volunteered to do this tonight before I was asked. There is no coercion here. I feel what I am about to say with a passion … [Read more...]

Scotwise's Warnie acceptance speech

SCOTWISE grandly continues the tradition of an acceptance speech following his recent welll-deserver warnie award. … [Read more...]

And the winner of the next Warnie blogging award is…..

Scotwise is a regular commentator here, who's wisdom in the comments hides the fact that on his own blog he is one of those bloggers who are wise enough to realise there are people who can say things much better than him. In Scotwise's case the real wisdom comes from a peppering of fantastic quotes from mostly dead christian preachers and missionaries. Sadly these days the quality of being already dead seems to make your christian writing more likely to be a good inspiring read. Anyway, it is … [Read more...]

Welcome to the Warnie Awards

The Warnies award is given in recognition of general blogging excelence as judged entirely subjectively by me. These are the blogs that I believe may be headed for the dizzy heights of blogging recognition. It could equally be called "Warnie's blog tips". What prizes do recipients receive? Firstly they get mentioned here, and on whichever blogs feel it is worth mentioning the latest award recipients. Secondly, there posts are aggregated in the Warnie recipients group aggregator at … [Read more...]

Is Arminianism really Catholicism?

Eric wonders why people call him by the name of his blog, and for me the answer is simple- when I hit "Blog This" thats the name which comes up! I am enjoying his blog a lot these days despite our differences. He has posts from a catholic background and it is great to not be interacting with a straw man. Most recently he has written a great posts which quotes wikkipaedia and suggests that catholicism and arminianism are essentially similar.The Arminians suggested five, anti-Calvinist … [Read more...]

Is the simple gospel really calvinism?

Ales Rarus has now made himself really clear. I can understand what he is saying, but struggle to recognise it as Biblical. You see, Ales seems to have understood instinctively what many an Arminian has tried to deny- if we accept that man really has a totally free will, that gives man some of the credit for his salvation and also makes it insecure. I am not happy with that concept.His points are logical, but I beg to disagree with what he goes onto say:-"# God gave man free will so that we … [Read more...]
