3GT Episode 6: Whistles, Sleepy Cats and Frothy-Mouthed Calvinists
Don't miss the latest installment of 3GT. Here's a brief overview of what to expect:
"With renewed vigor, the men of 3GT re-engage the topic of the extent of the atonement (with Austin defending the universal side of particular atonement, Kyle a limited view of particular atonement). Barry plays the role of referee, calling fouls and low blows. In the second segment, we talk about Austin's recent moving adventure to Pensacola. Lastly, Barry raises the subject of variation in the body of Christ, drawing attention to Martin Bucer's work Concerning the True Care of Souls." [But actually, that isn’t quite the end. A brief moment of violence might just burst out at the end-end]
Extent of the atonement: Beginning - 29:14
Our moving experiences: 29:14-39:00
Variation in the Body of Christ: 39:00-Nearly the End
Violent ending? 1:00:55-End
For one of the best lectures enumerating the differences between advocates of limited and unlimited sufficiency, be sure to check out Michael Lynch's "Early Modern Hypothetical Universalism: Reflections on the Status Quaestionis and Modern Scholarship."
For helpful resources on the Reformer's views of the extent of the atonement, see David Ponter's excellent website: Calvin and Calvinism.
Martin Bucer: Concerning the True Care of Souls
Pet Education.com reminds us of the possible side effects of Dramamine for cats: "May see sedation, dry mouth, and inability to fully empty the bladder. Diarrhea, vomiting, and loss of appetite are less commonly seen." Just say'n.
