Team Apologian

As many of my blog readers already know, I've been inducted as a member of the Team Apologian at the blog of Alpha & Omega Ministries. I look forward to doing my best to try to contribute to that blog. At the same time, I think it worthwhile to provide a couple of caveats.

a) Dr. White, the leader of the team, does not endorse everything I write here (he may not even endorse everything in every article I write at the A&O Ministries blog).

b) Conversely, I don't agree with Dr. White (or other members of the team) on everything.

Given all that disagreement, how can we be on one blogging team?

The answer is simple: we agree that Scripture is the rule of faith and that the Gospel message is one of faith in Christ alone for salvation. We are divided in some ways, but we can have Christian fellowship and unity that bridges the denominational and lesser doctrinal differences among us. We worship one God, and defend faith in Him against all those who question our sure hope of Salvation from the wrath which is to come.

In the essentials: Unity
In the non-essentials: Liberty
In all things: Prudence and Charity

Congrats man! I didn't know you were up for the possibility. White and AO Mins. sure is a stalwart ministry for Reformed persons and for God's truth of the Gospel.

God bless,
Billy

I agree with that. Does that mean I am qualified? Do you think Mr. White would want me on the team?

God Bless,
Ben

Hi Ben,

I suspect we'd probably question the consistency of your adherence to Sola Fide, in view of the synergistic claims of Arminianism.
