I don’t spend much time reading other blogs. I know there are lots of good ones out there, but I just don’t have the time to surf the blogosphere. I should add that I find many of the trendy blogs pretty boring. Some of them seem to be little more than weekly reports on what John Piper or D. A. Carson or Tim Keller happen to be doing at any given time. I don’t mean anything by it, but those kinds of blogs are not my cup of tea.
I like to read different kinds of blogs. There are one or two I nearly always find helpful. Now and again I look at the Society of Evangelical Arminians link to see if there’s any interesting articles there. Sadly, this site offers little positive material on Arminianism itself. It tends rather to display its disagreements with Calvinism.
Having said that, it’s a good place to go sometimes to get their perspective. There is nothing worse to me than people, be they Calvinists or Arminians or whatever, who collect their info about opposing traditions exclusively from their own writers. As a dispensationalist I constantly find that many of my covenant theologian brethren do this, and I am sure they would feel justified in feeling the same way when the tables are turned.
Anyway, the Society of Evangelical Arminians have a survey, Are You an Arminian and Don’t Even Know It? I took the test, and…. I am not an Arminian!
This does not come as news to me, but I enjoyed taking the survey all the same. Perhaps you will too? Perhaps it will help disabuse one or two folks about what Arminians themselves believe?
Please don’t misconstrue me here. I think there are far worse things to be than a solid Arminian.
I wonder if there’s a similar survey by Calvinists? Have fun.
