About Theology

  • Basic Baptist Doctrines/Beliefs,” by David Brumbelow in the Gulf Coast pastor blog, with an outline of Baptist doctrines that he offers in training his deacons and other leaders.
  • “The Bible Teaches Libertarian Free Will Debate,” Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, and Part 12, in Arminian Chronicles, with a debate between Dan Chapa and “Turretin fan” on whether or not the Bible teaches Libertarian Freedom.

Nonetheless, the series does offer some constructive suggestions about how to deal constructively with such young Calvinists.
