Arminianism and Adventism

While I'm sending some link-love to the Andrews Seminary, I thought I'd mention the Arminianism and Adventism Symposium coming up in October (14-17). So why is this conference important? Basically because our soteriological (doctrine of salvation) roots go back the Jacob Arminius, the first serious Protestant/Reformed theologian to reject Calvinist predestination, combining free-will with the understanding that we cannot save ourselves. John Wesley, the founder of Methodism picked up his ideas, and many of the original Adventists were Methodists, including Ellen White.

If you're still not convinced this is worthwhile, go check out their list of reasons why you should attend the Adventism and Arminianism Symposium.

p.s. They just enlisted yours truly to blog the symposium.

New Blog: Memory, Meaning & Faith

Where has Dave been since January?

Thanks for asking! I've been working on a new blog project with some of my seminary professors. It's called Memory, Meaning & Faith, and on it we'll be discussing all things related to theology and history. So you should pretty much go over there and check it out. Oh yeah, we're also going to be giving away free stuff over the next few weeks (more on that here), so stay tuned.

I'll still be blogging over here. In the last few weeks I've had the inspiration several times but haven't had the actual time. Hopefully, my schedule will allow some posting in the near future.

Much gratitude to all who still have apokalupto in their feed reader.
