One Year Anniversary

Hard to believe it has been one year since I started blogging.  I have enjoyed the experience and interaction with Calvinists and Arminians.  My only regret is that I do not have much time to devote to writing posts.  There are many posts which I have been meaning to write and have just not had the time.  A few words of thanks are in order:

Thanks to my dear wife who has supported me and allowed me to spend some time on certain nights writing posts.

Thanks to Billy Birch for encouraging me to blog.  If it wasn’t for him this blog would have never existed.

Thanks to all those who have linked to my blog and taken the time to read my posts.

Thanks to J.C. Thibodaux for his friendship and for helping me by contributing several excellent posts to Arminian Perspectives.

Thanks to Dr. Brian Abasciano for sharing many important insights with me via e-mail and getting me involved in the SEA project.

Thanks to all those who have challenged my thinking (that even includes the Triablogue boys).

Thanks to the Reformed Mafia guys (especially Gordan and Rhett).  I just can’t help but to like those guys (though they are dead wrong about soteriology, of course).

Thanks to spell-check (what a mess this blog would be without it).

Thanks to Nick Norelli for turning me on to WordPress and helping me figure some things out when I moved from blogger.

And especially, thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Without Him I can do nothing, and yet; I can do all things through Him. 

God Bless,

Ben

  5. Is someone slicing onions . . . I’m a little misty . . .

    Ben, thank you for the insights which you have presented here on this blog. I have learned a lot from your perspectives and look forward, Lord willing, to gaining more insight into our Arminian theology.

    May God continue to bless all that you do for His kingdom and for His glory.

    In Christ,
    Billy

  9. You should write a book on the subject of Arminianism! Althogh, peraps this is an idea. I notice that Arminianism usually has to define itself in the xontext of a rtejection or protest against Calvinism. How about just a good, solid, orthodox Arminian theology books promoting Arminian theology plain and simple without any allusions or references to Calvinism at all? A book which would simply explain clearly the doctines and the harder passages such as ROmans 9 and John 6 and 10 etc. That would be a very good book. You could call it; “Arminian Theology: Christian Faith Defined” or something
