    Hello, it has been a while since I last contributed anything to this forum. I hope you are all doing well. I started going to the Bethel Chapel in Luton, England a few months ago, where Mr B. A. Ramsbottom is the minister. We have received a great welcome there, and the ministry is a great edification...

    I am a CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN. I am a sinner saved by God's grace alone based on the Person and Work of Christ.I believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, as He is understood from the Bible alone, regardless of denominational affiliation.

    And, yes, another correction...with further study and reflection I now reject the notion of a Covenant of Works and, rather, embrace PNet's Modified Covenant Theology as the view of scripture. I cannot accept the Westminster Confession of Faith in all particulars.

    Thank you for posting Bob - I never talked to Ed, but I am certainly blessed by his work as your teachings have affected me in such a great way as well.

    I have been blessed by reading "A Brief History of Covenant Theology" by R Scott Clark. After giving a masterful account of the intricacies of Covenant Theology and outlining what precisely is involved Professor Clark writes:

    "In reaction to Murray, and Shepherd, Meredith...

    My Evangelical Calvinism does subscribe to and holds to the "Five Points of Calvinism".

    Robert thank you for this tribute to Ed Vrell. I was unaware of his death till today reading this blog. I want to add my personal thoughts in this short response. Ed has been most kind and gracious to me over the past couple years in many ways. I have shared at least five phone conversations with him...

    Thank you so much for this tribute to Ed, he was truly a blessing to me after I left the church and as you have stated will continue to be so through his many writings, I have a notebook full!! Even many handwritten letters that are full of a pastor's heart towards a sister in Christ with no earthly...

    My Evangelical Calvinism holds that there is ONE COVENANT OF GRACE.

    One more thing: the Calvinism that I allude to is "Evangelical Calvinism" and thus differs from the rigid "Federal Theology" of the Westminster Confession of Faith and from "Classical Calvinism" in general.

    Dear Brethren, I have made another grave error of judgement. I no sooner had posted agreement with Roger Olson's CLASSIC ARMINIANISM when God brought me across these precious words from the Cambridge Declaration of confessing evangelicals, concerning our total inability to even co-operate a smidgeon...

    I also must say that while Believers Baptism by Immersion is a legitimate form of Baptism it is not the only mode or procedure of Water Baptism.

    I must also correct another error on my part. In my zeal to be 'loyal to scripture' I - for a brief time - reverted back to a form of dispensationalism viz: PROGRESSIVE DISPENSATIONALISM because it seemed to offer more fidelity to the fine details of scripture itself.

    God, however, has...

    Fair comment, Brandan. I have no problem with that at all.

    I still say, though, without any hypocrisy at all that I enjoy it here at PNet. I hold common ground with Calvinists on Total Depravity and Eternal Security. I have been sincere in my comments that I rate you as MASSIVE THINKERS...

    "My thinking has matured through honest debate to embrace CLASSICAL ARMINIANISM as the biblical soteriological system."

    Craig, I think that's what you were when you started coming here, right?

    All my time spent here at PNet has been profitable. My thinking has matured through honest debate to embrace CLASSICAL ARMINIANISM as the biblical soteriological system.

    One writer defines classical arminianism like this (I am in enthusiastic agreement with his postulations):

    Roger Olson gave this Arminian order of salvation which I agree with:

    "Arminianism, Remonstrantism, was, in many ways, simply an attempt to mediate between Catholic and Calvinist ordos—both of which were viewed by Arminius and the Remonstrants as imbalanced. To put the matter...

    I believe ardently and devoutly that a true believer (one who has been regenerated by the Holy Spirit) can never - under any circumstances - lose their salvation.

    I found this article which confirms and upholds this blessed truth!

    An excellent link that explains fully my SECURE ARMINIAN soteriology can be found here:

    This articulates my position that election is conditional, the atonement unlimited and grace is resistable; however, once regenerated ALWAYS REGENERATED....

    I further believe that Believers Baptism by Immersion as an Identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection is the teaching of scripture.
