“Egypt My People, Assyria the Work of My Hands” …?

Have you ever considered the following passage?  Isaiah 19:19-24 says: “In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the Lord at its border.  It will be a sign and a witness to the Lord of Hosts in the land of [...]

Should We Say, “Farewell Origen”?

Has anyone noticed how certain theologians/thinkers are integrated into the stream of evangelicalism while others of similar theology are banned or blacklisted? We could begin with Origen.  While his position regarding universal reconciliation (among other things) are mostly rejected today we certainly have not pronounced a “farewell Origen” banishing him from the ranks of those [...]

Thoughts on Free-Will: Part One

The main reason I changed my view from an Arminian to the Reformed perspective was the challenge to the free-will assumption. It was a very theologically disruptive time for me as I became convinced that my view of man’s free-will was not Scripturally sound.

  As I reflect on the role of the elect in God’s plan of redemption for the world I am astounded by how it is ever more glorious and stunningly reflected in the types and shadows woven into the Story of God found in the Scriptures.  Lately I have been meditating on the purpose of [...]

What Do the Names of God Reveal About His Character?

I found a website that lists literally every single reference to God’s name.  There are listed over SIX HUNDRED references to His names, more than SEVENTY  ”I AM’s” and many other indirect references.  Seeing how important the act of naming a person or a location is in Biblical history, the names God gives Himself must be the surest indicator of His true character [...]

The “All Without Distinction vs. Exception” Argument

I was asked recently about the reformed explanation of the word “all”.  Calvinists maintain that the word “all” rarely means every human being that ever lived.  Instead they argue that it must mean all types of people, from every tribe, tongue or nation.  They use this argument as a way of explaining how the God of [...]
