Propositions & Questions (for Fred Sanders) on the Trinity

Some Propositions on God, the divine essence, the Trinity, and the covenant of redemption God is pure act (actus purus). His will is identical to his essence.

The Nature and Future of Protestantism

A month after the Future of Protestantism discussion at Biola, I think it is fair to say that by all accounts it was a great success. I am honored to have been part of it. The discussion was very well attended— the chapel was packed, in fact, and thousands watched the live stream— but most […]

Fred Sanders on 1 John 1:1-4

It is a sermon on hell that has seared itself into the conscience of the country and made people think […]
