I assure you all that that last post was with a sarcastic tone. We weren't really arguing about what's wrong and right. I just like to joke around and being a heretic. It keeps people from saying, "Jesus loves me and that's all I need to know". We were just stretching each other by exercising our theological muscles. We actually had another great talk today. I think spiritual language for this is "iron sharpens iron".
I assure you that I do not know enough or assume that I am the final authority on anything.
And that last statement was just me and my friend laughing at how we thought we were funny because we are nerds, not because we think we know anything for sure. Obviously, there are unknowns in Scripture and theology, but that shouldn't stop us from trying to learn and seeking to know the Truth, even though Jesus is the Truth.
The fact is Calvin was a man, both of these theologies were created by man, so…neither is perfect.
Alright, I'm done. Unless you know me pretty well, then you don't realize that half the stuff that comes out of my mouth is a joke. Hence the title of my blog "Hale-Yeah!"
