Hello
Last year you were a participant (in fact, you were the first) at International Weblogger's Day, and I was wondering if you were still interested. If you are, please make sure to spread the word, or to use some of the buttons listed at http://www.chronicled.org/intlblogday. Oh, and the day's shifted to the 14th.

Thanks!
Rio

Daniel, I'm not surprized that you're asking these questions of yourself after your first semester of seminary. One of my most brilliant professors once told me that there is 'danger' with the increase in knowledge.

Of course, you'll end up with more questions! But that's a good thing, because -- for the most part -- they will be better questions than the ones you're asking today. By better, I mean, more thoughtful, probing, and significant.

But don't forget... you'll also come away from seminary with 'answers' and insights you previously did not possess, and for which you'll forever be grateful.

Calvinism vs.Arminianism, huh? Are you familiar with 'Wesleyan-Arminianism'? ;)

I think you can look for answers in flashes of insight. I truly believe God reveals things to us both in Scripture and in our experience. You probably already know that and have lived it.

Hi there, as others have said I am not surprised that you have more questions than you did when you started seminary and as others have said you will walk away with many unique insights and they may not be what you expect.

Best of Luck

Hello, Daniel.

My name is David Smith.

You probably remember me as Elric 3960 at a BBS that we've both conversed in.

I've often wondered where you were and if you're well. I'm pleased to know that you are.

Regarding the topic, I won't pretend that I'm even a novice theologian, but there are definitely questions in my faith that I have yet to resolve. Those whom I've looked to for guidance have revealed themselves to be either false or misguided in their quests for Spiritual Peace. They were more interested in their personal finances than in the well-being of their church and its parishoners.

I wish you all the best in your Spiritual Quest and that you'll never tire of asking questions when you've completed your current degree of study in Seminary.

God bless.
"Elric"
