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.

My Response to: Christianity Today Liveblog: New Research Suggests Calvinists Tied With Arminians In SBC

Looks like 60% of Southern Baptists think that Calvinism is a heresy. While only 30% of SBC pastors openly admit their views are Arminian, the fact that 60% of Baptists think Calvinism is a problem shows that their views are actually Arminian leaning whether or not they will admit it.  My own view is that Arminianism is actually a Roman Catholic leaning heresy that is at its foundation a form of semi-pelagianism or pelagianism.  The Anabaptists ironically were semi-pelagians as well.

Ironically, the historical roots of the Southern Baptist Convention were at one time solidly Calvinist as the statement of doctrinal distinctives at Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky clearly shows.  (See:  The Abstract of Principles).
