Are You an Arminian?

While I was browsing Roger Olson's Arminian blog tonight, my daughter asked me if he is an "Arminian." I said "yes," not sure exactly where this conversation might be going. 

"What are you?" she asked. 

"Not an Arminian . . ." was my somewhat evasive answer. 

My son chimed in with with the inevitable, "He's a Calvinist." 

My daughter added, "He's a Calvinist and a Hobbinist."


It's better than a Leginian.


  1. Ha! A Hobbinist. Hey Derek, I was just thinking yesterday about how much I miss your posts! Even though this was a shorty, it was awesome.

  2. Thanks Blaine! I miss regular blogging, as well as interacting with other bloggers. Perhaps someday ...

  3. What if one is a Lutheran, without being a Lutheran?

  4. One would then be a paradox. Lutherans generally approve of paradoxes. I generally approve of Lutherans. However, the approval of generals is a rare thing.
