Reformed Answers to Bible and Theology: Questions Q&A Knowledgebase

By: John Frame

Religious Publication

Excerpt: Of course, free will can be used in various senses. If someone wants to use the phrase to refer to the obvious fact that we do what we desire to do (i.e. compatibilism), I can't imagine any serious objection. Here we are just using a word to describe a capacity that everyone agrees we have. Even libertarians agree that we have compatibilist freedom; they just want to insist that we also have freedom in another sense as well. Of course, those who use free will to...

Anf 07 : Fathers of the Third and Fourth Centuries : Lactantius, V...

By: Philip Schaff

Religious Publication

Excerpt: The genius of Lactantius suffers a sad transformation when unclothed of vernacular and stripped of the idiomatic graces of his style. But the intelligent reader will be sure to compare this translation with the Latinity of the original, and to recur to it often for the enjoyment of its charming rhetoric, and of the high sentiment it so nobly enforces and adorns. This volume will be the favourite of the series with many. The writings of the Christian Tully alone ...

By: Philip Schaff

Religious Publication

Excerpt: This volume completes the American series, according to our agreement. But it will be found to afford much material over and above what was promised, and the editorial labour it has exacted has been much greater than might at first be suspected. The Bibliography with which the work is supplemented, and which is the original work of Dr. Riddle, has been necessarily thrown into the Index by the overgrowth of this volume in original matter.

A Response to Mike Adams's in Defense of the New Covenant

By: Greg Welty

Religious Publication

Introduction: The following is a critical evaluation of Mike Adams? In Defense of the New Covenant. The first volley in this debate was Richard Barcellos? book In Defense of the Decalogue.[2] Mike Adams? response constitutes the second volley, and now that the basic positions have been articulated and exposed, I?ve chosen to step in.

A Short Note on N. T. Wright and His Reformed Critics

By: Rich Lusk

Religious Publication

Excerpt: This short paper is not an attempt to provide a comprehensive analysis and defense of N. T. Wright, much less the so-called New Perspective on Paul as a whole. Indeed, Wright's theological project has some failings and the New Perspective as a movement must be considered a mixed bag of thinkers with widely varying degrees of orthodoxy. Rather, my much more modest goal is to offer a plea for Reformed theologians and pastors to give Wright a sustained and sympathe...

Athanasian Creed

By: Various

By: Various

Religious Publication

Excerpt: The Auburn four are perhaps the most controversial theologians in the Reformed world today. I?ve heard much about them, primarily from my own session, but I?d never had a chance to read either a formal critique or defense of their teachings until this assignment. So, needless to say, I?ve found the readings on this topic to be very informative.
