Concerning Heated Theological Arguments in the Blogosphere

To my friends in the Emerging Church: reformed, orthodox, or liberal; to my Calvinist and Arminian friends; to my Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant friends, please consider the following:

Galatians 5:19-26

(ESV)

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these.

Thus says the Lord:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.”

Welcome to Ars Gratia. This site represents the ongoing theological journey of Jason Blair. In coming days, you will be able to read essays, sermons, biographies, rants, and general thoughts about life as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. Enjoy the ride, and be welcome to read, ponder, discuss and debate. Above all, grow closer to Jesus, the Word through whom all things were made, and the One through whom we have reonciliation to God.

Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to Thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly Thine, utterly dedicated unto Thee; and then use us, we pray Thee, as Thou wilt, and always to Thy glory and the welfare of Thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. (from the Book of Common Prayer)
