Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Wesleyan Arminian: Jerry Walls on Problems With Calvinism

Jerry Walls unwittingly causes many Arminians to jump ship to the true Gospel expressed by classical Calvinism. I was one of those students who thought through the arguments for libertarian free will and its implications and ultimately decided that such a view is actually Pelagianism rehashed. Jerry Walls is an apologetics and Christian philosophy professor at Asbury Theological Seminary, which is part of the Evangelical Wesleyan holiness movement. I chose that seminary because in 1992 I was still an Arminian Pentecostal on the Assemblies of God side of things. Odd but often hearing the opposing arguments often pushes one in a direction unintended by the arguments themselves.

See how many theological errors and logical inconsistencies you can spot in Walls' arguments by clicking on this link and viewing the video: Wesleyan Arminian: Jerry Walls on Problems With Calvinism
