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.

Angry Arminians. | Defending. Contending.

Tex said in a comment the Angry Arminians blog:

The first step toward the solution, Pilgrim, is for Calvinists (caustic and otherwise) and Arminians (angry and sanguine) to agree that either Calvinists are true Christians and Arminians are not; or vice versa. As a Calvinist I fully support the former proposition while rejecting the latter. Theoretically, Calvs and Arms can both be wrong, but we cannot both be right; one camp or the other worships a detestable idol of their own devising…unless both camps do. Thanks to Scripture, the both-and option is a nonstarter.

You rightly point out that the Arminian hates the truth of Scripture and is in rebellion against their Author. This necessarily means the Arminian is not a regenerate Christian, period. I don’t support or endorse “Outside the Camp,” but here is a short article outlining just a few of the obvious reasons Arminians must be considered lost still. Some of the reasons put forth are weaker than others, and I would expand greatly on what is there; but the authors do a good job of keeping it succinct, something I cannot manage whilst on this particular topic. Also, they’re not “caustic,” at least not by this ol’ Scrooge’s standards.

This is not an “intramural debate,” as so many foolish teachers today are fond of branding it. Real Christians (including you, Pilgrim) should seek separation from unrepentant Arminians, not concord. Light has no fellowship with darkness. Arminians are unbelievers. They require Gospel witness, prayer and the regenerative power of God, not confirmation of their rank heresy or validation as redeemed partakers in Christ and legit members of His body..

As you can see, Tex, the gays come out of the woodwork when you actually use your brain. Modern anti-intellectualism and irrationalism is rampant. The only basis for truth is God's special revelation in the words of Scripture. The Bible IS the Word of God. Literally. Knowledge is only possible through special revelation. Human reason has been darkened by the fall (Romans 1:18-24).

And how! Just look at what we're dealing with over at DefCon. Sad, really. Steve Matthews happens to have posted something apropos and timely: Confessions of An Inadvertent Thomist
