I communicated with Al Dager, just so I would not be talking about him behind his back. Understandably, he is apparently not motivated to engage in dialogue in the comments thread. I’m sure he’s a busy man, and not disposed to this whole blogging thing. Most of my readers aren’t. But that’s okay. I am posting Al Dager’s email to me so that in this way you get to see what he has to say in his own defense.
Just to let you know, I am not Arminian or Pentecostal. Because one believes that the gifts of the Spirit are still operative does not make one a Pentecostal. Pentecostals focus on the gift of tongues, particularly as evidence of one’s salvation. You should know better. I have never studied Arminian, but I sense that he has been much maligned byReform theologians because of their intractable insistence on all things Calvinistic. Shame on them. I’ve done my in-depth study on the issue of eternal security and have found nothing you or anyone else has said to be viable from a biblical perspective to refute it. Continue believing as you wish. Rots-a-ruck wit dat.
In Jesus’ love,
